When you first see them two pink lines…
With my first pregnancy we were trying for a long time I had lost count of how many pregnancy tests I had peed on
I had given up all hope..
A short while later I couldn’t stop eating my dads home made quiche my mum said to me ‘Meg have you done a test recently ‘ no I answered she went and bought me one I did it straight away long and behold two strong pink lines popped up!!
OH MY GOD!!
I’m actually pregnant a year and a half of trying and we have finally done it! In that split second so many emotions ran though me excitement, pure joy, worry & relief!! I called my mum in
mum I’m pregnant!! she gave me the biggest hug and we both cried!!
Dean was at work at the time i quickly ran to my phone and called him
‘Hello what’s wrong?’
‘Dean I’m pregnant we’re having a baby’
‘What for real?’ ‘There two lines’
Yes dean TWO LINES!
He was over the moon and said he would pick up a digital clear blue test on his way home from work!
The weeks quickly past and I became very sick I had the worst morning sickness from about 5 weeks as soon as I opened my eyes that was it! We told my dad and deans parents and that was it really we wanted to wait until we knew everything was ok.
That was until I reached 6 weeks I had severe pain right at the bottom of my stomach I was admitted to hospital with expected eptopic my hole world had fallen in I couldn’t stop crying! Am I going to lose my baby? the baby we had longed for for so long?
The Doctor came around explained they had booked me in for a scan to see what was going on!
The next morning I went to my scan dean was with me! I was so nervous i kept crying the lady began to scan there was a tiny little thing with a little yoke sag next to it & right next to that was a pool of blood the Sonographer was silent I kept asking is everything ok? And then she turned the monitor off and said everything looks ok for now but only time will tell?
What does that mean?
She went on to say there is a 50/50 chance we just have to wait the blood will hopefully disappear and the pregnancy will continue as normal but she would like to see me at 8 weeks to make sure.
I went home and prayed everything was going to be okay dean looked after me so well made sure I didn’t lift a finger for the next few weeks I went back and Everything was looking great baby had grown so much and the blood was gone! We were both so relieved and began to get exited about the months to come!
My 12 weeks scan came and my god we were both so exited and so nervous!
Look at our baby!!
I couldn’t believe how much baby had grown kicking there legs and bouncing about right then and there I had never been happier! All the important measurement were took and everything was good she printed out our scan photos of course I brought loads! How could I not!!
We announced to the rest of the family we were expecting and they all couldn’t be happier for us!! My sickness continued until week 18 we found out baby was In fact and little boy! I totally knew he was a boy!
And now he is smart, funny 3 year old called Blake!
MY SECOND PREGNANCY
Shall we start trying for another baby now dean asks
Blake was now 14 months old and we didn’t know If we would be trying for a long time again I agreed and I came off the pill I had struggled to convince blake we had lots of doctors appointments test etc!
So by now we had been trying two weeks I started doing ovulation tests as I don’t get periods so it’s hard to track anything, the days passed and they are all pretty much the same colour I stopped testing and just went with it having fun trying,
The next week or so we went out on a date night ice skating and the some dinner dean & I are really good ice skaters but we went later in the evening and the ice had been torn up anyway we went on going around fast exit thing I know dean falls down and I reach out to grab him but I don’t and end up falling with him
Something wasn’t right I couldn’t move my wrist we went to the hospital yep I had broken it really badly I would need an operation in the morning I went in the next morning for the op are you pregnant no I answered she did a tested negative everything went well I was in hospital a couple of days and then went home to recover
One night I got woken up with this sharpe pain it felt like the worst period cramp and then it went it only lasted 2-3 minutes and then nothing weird I thought, I remembered reading about Implantation pain and thought I’m pregnant
I waited 3 days to let the HCG build enough to show on a test
I did the test and there it was the faintest of line but it was there I rang dean again he was at work and told him the news he couldn’t believe it had happened so fast! Were having a baby! I was in so much shock I wanted to tell everyone!!
We booked in for a private scan at 6 weeks to make sure everything was going well! And everything looked great
I suffer minimal sickness and craved sweets like crazy! We got home and set up our baby announcement I couldn’t wait to tell everyone the happy news! We involved Blake with this! He was so cute!
Everyone was thrilled! We later found out that baby was indeed a little girl and is now a beautiful 15 month old called Hallie-May
For me being pregnant is the best feeling I have never felt more confident & beautiful I’m so proud of my body!
