Last week I had my first positive test with ClearBlue, those words that we have been longing to see for the past few months ‘pregnant 1-2 weeks’ Yes! In fact, I didn’t quite believe it and neither did the hubby, so like mad people we let it sink in and then had to take another test. With anticipation we waited for the little egg timer on the test to go round and round and again the words appear ‘pregnant 1-2 weeks.
I know it sounds strange to be surprised when we had been pro actively trying for some months, but only a few days before I had what I though was the ‘time of the month’ and had even had blood tests to see if anything was wrong to be on the safe side. Worry did now set in and I was frantically looking online to find out what the previous bleeding meant and if it would stick. I’m sure I’m not the first mum that wants to feel excited but nervous to do so, and so the lovely people at my local surgery admitted me to Lister Hospital where I had a scan and we saw the little sack and egg yolk exactly where it should be, my husband even took the opportunity to crack a joke with the Sonographer ‘yes, that’s where I was aiming!’. Really, you can’t take them anywhere.
But this gave us the chance now to actually feel the elation and excitement that comes with finding out your going to be a mom and dad… and so the journey begins.
