Stats + Confirmation

So I went to see the doctor and he told me that, yes, I am pregnant.

So I have done a bit of research and here are some of the stats on my baby!

  • The baby is due on/around 23rd December 2017 (we might have a Christmas baby!)
  • Conception likely took place on 1st April (which makes sense…)
  • 34 days have passed since the start of my pregnancy (apparently). That’s 12%, and means I have 246 left.
  • My baby is 4 weeks old.
  • This time next year, the baby will be 16 weeks old!

The next few days will be busy, so sorry if there are not any blogs, but I am so excited!


I’m Pregnant!?

On Tuesday I found out something. Something really big.

My period was really late. I didn’t really think anything of it, until I looked and it was about 10 days late. That’s kinda unusual for me.

So my boyfriend told me to go and take a pregnancy test, just in case. So I went out and bought one (which was not fun…) and took it.

And it was positive.

It wasn’t too unexpected, but it still blew me away. I’m pregnant: I’ve got a baby growing inside me!

Tomorrow I will bring a bit more info on the stats and due date, because I’ve got a doctors appointment later today.

From Grace.

Kitchen Bakery

I adore baking. It feels so good to produce something which you can eat and enjoy, and share with others for them to enjoy too.

Today I made some chocolate cupcakes. One some of them, I added icing sugar to create a snowy finish. On the others, I stuck some chocolate flakes on them.

I hope to do some more bakes posts soon. Also sorry for the short post, I am just tired and this is all I have done today.

Balcony Garden

Today I did some gardening. I live in a 2-story apartment, so I don’t really have a garden. However, I have managed to renovate my balcony into a cosy little place to grow things.

A view of my balcony. Most of this I had already planted a few months ago, so at the minute it looks great!

I love gardening so much. My dad had a huge greenhouse full of wonderful plants, and ever since I was small, they always fascinated me. I spent ages in that greenhouse, and it really was a very special place to me.

There is no way that I’d be able to have a ‘perfect’ garden like my dad’s, but I’ve tried to create a place where I can relax and enjoy the feeling of being with nature.

I bought some plant pots a while back, but it was only today that I actually managed to get round to doing something. After work, I got them out and spent two hours trying to create a little place where they can grow.

I already have quite a few plants, as you can see in the picture above. Since the weather has been getting a bit nicer, everything is starting to look bloomed.

Hopefully soon I will be able to get some more things to make my garden look perfect.
