It All Started On 22nd October 2015
I woke up feeling a little different than normally, I don’t know what it was or what feeling it was, I just knew something had changed. I remember phoning my friend Rose and explaining to her about a weird dream I had the Sunday night before all of this and in that dream I took a pregnancy test and it came back positive, thinking about it all now as I write this, I should have known. My body was trying to tell me something, so taking a pregnancy test I had in a drawer (my mum gets them from work), I decided to at least see what was going on.
I will say, I was 95% sure it was going to come back negative as the last few times I had done ones they all said no. Myself and Will, my partner were no where near trying, it just sort of happened. I tried to get Will to come home early, telling him all sorts of silly stories from I was feeling unwell to just plain telling him, but this day wasn’t going to be easy.
Will wasn’t able to come home until later on the evening and didn’t arrive till gone 8pm. By this point I had been sitting on the news since midday until my mother come home and as we all know the feeling, your mum always knows when somethings going on. As I sat across the coffee table from her, my face clearly giving everything away. She knew. She just knew.
And at first I thought oh lord she is going to react badly but of course, my mum will always surprise me and was very pleased, as was my father who was also happy. The next person and the most important person was Will and he had yet to come home, so I sat and waited for him to arrive.
When he finally did, I opened him a can of larger and just said for him to come upstairs as we needed a chat. He thought I was going to tell him something different to what I was actually going to say. He sat there silently for a little bit as I handed him the positive test, I watched as his face reacted from shock, confusion to happiness before he said ‘I should have known, you’ve been meaner more then usual’. Laughing at how he reacted, he hugged me and we were soon beckoned downstairs to talk with my parents.
I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in life, he continues to surprise me through this journey and I am extremely lucky to have him. As I write this I am 14 weeks as of today, excited to get my little bump growing, I can’t wait to see our little one again in a few weeks time and begin our lives together.
I will do my very best to keep this blog active as after all, I know our little one when he/she is old enough, will look back at this blog, even if its in a book and will love the fact we enjoyed everything right from the beginning.
