& this is where it begins, if you would have told me this time last year I would be starting pregnancy blog posts I would have laughed in your face. If you know me well you will know I have always wanted children & the fact I am pregnant feels like a miracle and can’t contain my excitement however the last 12 weeks haven’t been what I expected at all!
By the time you are reading this I would have already had my 12 week scan & be into my second trimester and praying I feel a heck of a lot better. So lets start at the beginning;

Up until New Year I hadn’t been very well, wisdom tooth problems, Urine Infection, extreme tiredness and bloating. Christmas was fine although I was shattered and wanted to fall asleep every minute of the day & then comes New Years Eve when I felt so ill I fell asleep on the sofa surrounded by friends playing games. When I went to the doctors just after christmas with suspected UTI it didn’t cross my mind that I could be pregnant until the doctor said ‘is there a chance?!’ which of course I replied ‘YES’ with excitement but going home and doing numerous (crappy) pregnancy tests that came back negative it didn’t cross my mind again.

2nd January I decided to crack out the expensive clear blue pregnancy test, wee’d on the stick and got in the bath not thinking anything of it. Until I remembered I had taken it & saw PREGNANT on the stick. I just laid in the bath staring at it until I shouted to Rob, who wandered in with no idea. I handed him the pregnancy test where he also starred for a while. I honestly couldn’t believe it, all these feelings were going through my head

‘I’ve wanted this for so long & now I’ve got it’

‘We have nowhere to live’

‘Am I old enough, I still feel like a child’

The next day I went straight back to work after a long weekend in an unstable emotional wreck way, am I really going to be a mother?! The whole week I cried every night, I was so scared but at the same time so excited.

So surprise, I’m pregnant!

I will be doing weekly posts on here and hope to helps someone else as I have been loving reading people blogs since finding out I was pregnant.
