Family – Chosing to become a Mum, alone

5 posts in category Family

Pressing the go button …

I’m Liv. I’m 37. I’m alone. So far, so normal. The next thing you need to know is that I am going to become a Mum. I’m not pregnant. Yet. This is is the start of documenting what is, no doubt, going to be a very long journey. A very long, very emotional, very hard journey. Don’t get me wrong, just because this is the start of me writing about this, this is not something that I am embarking on, on a whim. This is culmination of years, literally years, of longing. Of hoping I ...

Not entirely alone …

Whilst I am not in a relationship it is very rare that I am actually on my own, mainly down to my scruffy sidekick Elvis. Elvis is an 8 year old Jack Russell x Bichon Frise and he is ace. He is a cat stuck in a dogs body, who sleeps for at least 20 hours a day. At least. He is so spoilt it is ridiculous. He comes to work with me, where a couple of the younger guys in the office actually sit down next to his bed to stroke him to sleep, just before feeding him the last remains of their lunch. ...

Niecephews …

I have been around, and loved, children nearly all my life. I first became an Auntie when I was just 13. There is larger age gap between me and my sister than there is between me and her daughter!

Probably too much for their liking sometimes … especially a couple of them who hate hugs! They range from 7 years old to fully fledged 24 year old grown ups! I ...

Good blood …

So I went to the doctors to get my blood tests. Honestly I didn't even ask them what they were for, I just know I needed them. I assume that, you know, if your blood comes out green, then they tell you that kids probably aren't something that is going to happen for you. I have had PCOS  tests numerous times, for various reasons and it always came back negative, so that was not something that was worrying me. However, all the things that I don't know what they are testing for is what was ...

My Family …

Telling my family was never going to be easy. For a start I am the youngest of four siblings, and perhaps more importantly, we lost our parents twenty years ago. Our Dad died when I was 12 and Mum died just 5 years later. I was just a child and although I didn’t realise it for years, I have felt alone ever since. My siblings are much older than me … My brother by 15 years, Sister 1 by 14 years and Sister 2 by 7 years. Yes, yes they are my full brothers and sisters just my parents ...
