On my last day of working part-time in September, I felt different.
I was a bit nauseous, light-headed and kept losing my breath. It had only been a few weeks since we started trying and it took us 12 months to fall pregnant with Ezra, so whilst it was incredibly fast, I knew that I was pregnant.
I finished work and stopped to get a test on the way home. I got home and it was positive! I was pregnant.
I walked into Ezra’s bedroom where Karl and Ezra were playing and gave Karl the test.
I don’t think I can explain my emotions. I was excited. I was nervous. I was so incredibly happy. I really can’t explain how I felt properly.
I had blood tests done the following week which told us I was 3 weeks pregnant. My doctor was surprised that a home test even showed up that early!
When we were trying for Ezra, we were also going through a lot of changes. I was at a new and stressful job which I didn’t enjoy. We were buying our first home and moving. There was a lot happening and I think the Universe held off on the baby because we needed life to settle down a little.
This time when we started trying, life was completely different. I’m happy, I love my work, we’re settled, we’re happy and everything was aligned. This time, the Universe knew we were ready and gave us this baby sooner.
I’m 14 weeks today, so I’m finally announcing to the world!
Thank you all so much for your patience over the past few months whilst I battled with being sick every day. I’m finally settling down now and I’m so incredibly excited to share this chapter with you all.
