So while we decided to wait on trying until January, on 1st December I threw up, I haven’t thrown up since I was like 9, except during my last pregnancy, during which Morning Sickness was like an old friend, but I figured I was just being incredibly hopeful, so I pushed these thoughts to the back of my mind, however as the day I was due to start crept closer. I started thinking “what if” and when I didn’t start when I was due, I texted my fiancé and told him to bring home a pregnancy test and as soon as he came through the door I grabbed them and went to do the test. Within seconds the test came back positive, though having not used this particular brand before I kept double and triple checking I was reading it right, sure it couldn’t have happened so quickly and especially when we weren’t even trying!


The next day I went straight to the doctors to get them to book the early scan and early appointment at the antenatal clinic, they said they would get those sorted – hopefully the early scan will be before Christmas, what an amazing early Christmas present this is anyway, but it would be lovely to see a little heartbeat, I’m just waiting for the letters to come now.

I’m also booked into see the Midwife on 31st December when I’ll be 8 weeks 1 day!

Obviously after what happened with my first baby I am now terrified and will be holding my breath for the next 8 months! However I am going to treat this as it should be, as an amazing thing to happen, and hopefully with the hospital keeping a close eye on me and taking my aspirin (and discussing blood thinning injections) this should be an altogether different experience, hopefully I will be a mummy soon.
