Properly Pregnant! :O

Baby

7 Weeks 5 Days

I will be honest, despite taking roughly a billion pregnancy tests, I was most definitely in denial. I tried walking round Kiddicare and Mothercare, two HUGE baby shops, but I just… I duno, it didn’t sink in.

I have spent at least the last month in shock and denial. Not daring to get excited, or believe it is true.

I guess the doctors had drummed in the negativity so much, I forgot that I could actually be pregnant.

Last night, sure set me straight.

We had our first scan. An early pregnancy and dating scan. I could just about make out the head, you can’t in the photo but you could on the screen. But more mind blowing, you could see the heart beat.

The image of last night is so clear, sat in this dark relaxing room screen in front of me, nerves coursing through my body…

I watched as he prodded my bloated belly and up on the screen came this tiny little splodge… with an even tinier beating heart. I stared shell shocked, as the wife bounced around her seat saying

“OH MY GOD, THERES A HEART BEAT, LOOK A HEART BEAT!!!”

My whole world halted, the wifes voice became a muffled cheer as I stared shell shocked at a beating heart. That moment felt like a life time, and then a huge wave of shock punched me in the chest, and I broke down and cried.

Well it explains the throwing up… which is all the time!

Tactical Chunder

7 weeks pregnant.

I have reverted back to my teenage days. I am a spotty lesbian! My back and boobs are covered in spots 🙁 and I have major hormone rage!! Everyone is pissing me off!

I still have sore MASSIVE boobies, thankfully the exhaustion is wearing off a little but….

Morning sickness has well and truly hit.

Because no one knows I find myself having to do tactical chunders as we used to call them at Uni!

Secretly puking and carrying on the night! Except now it’s day time and I have to do it so no one can see!!

We were at a friends house warming party last night and it got pretty late, I could feel a wave of nausea pummelling my insides. I gave the wife the knowing look suggesting that now would be a good time to leave, but she didn’t quite get the message cause she was having such a good time. After some furious leg tapping and a few more sharp looks she reluctantly got up to leave.

We had barely got out of there drive when I was making her pull into the roadside so I could lean out of the car door and tactically throw up by the kerbside grass.

Again today on the way up to my mums we were in stop start traffic and I was starving. Hunger combined with some dodgy clutch work resulted in the wife once again having to pull over so I could hurl my inside up all over some motorway grass….

The wife says she can tell when I’m not feeling so hot because I turn a funny shade of greeny white!!

I can’t wait for the scan on Wednesday. I have been really trying hard not to google anything but I read somewhere that once you have a scan with the heart beat and everything looks normal and you reach 7ish weeks the chance of miscarriage drops significantly and keeps doing so week by week… So I think it will help me to relax quite a bit if we get the all clear on the scan 🙂

Fingers crossed
