There’s been some big news that I’ve been wanting to share. About 4 and a half months ago, I found out that I was pregnant! After weeks of what I thought was a mild stomach flew, it suddenly dawned on me one night at dinner that maybe, just maybe, there might be some other reason behind my constant nausea. We both looked at each other and thought, nah, can’t be. But as soon as we got home, the first thing I did was to rummage through our bathroom cupboard for that stick. After what felt like eternity, my heart thumping and a cold sweat forming on my forehead, the result was pretty conclusive. The plus mark was clearly visible!
We had discussed this a few months back and decided that it might be nice to start trying. I could not think of anything more special than being able to add a mini-us to our little family with him. I don’t think either of us actually thought that I would however, get pregnant so quickly. To be honest, as I’ve had some health issues in the past, I thought this might take at least a year and potentially require multiple rounds of IVF. So as the realisation slowly dawned on us, I have to say, I was slightly unprepared for the news, but definitely elated and relieved at how lucky we were.
I am proud to announce that I am now 20 weeks preggers and starting to feel the baby’s light thumps and wiggles. I could have announced a lot sooner, but after reading up on ‘how and when to announce’, I felt that I wanted to keep this between me and my partner for a little longer. Being 5 months, I’ve had the chance to do some initial research and feel like I can confidently share my experience with you and other fellow mothers-to-be.
So from this point onwards, stay tuned for baby updates and my thoughts on being pregnant!
PS: these photographs were taken by my baby daddy in Ibiza as the sun set over the horizon. I could not be happier to be able to share these moments with him. The fact that he took them makes these photographs even more special.
