Back to work yesterday and it was hell! Really struggled to get through the day and even had to curl up on a sofa at lunch for a quick nap – got some comments and looks for that one!
By the time I got home, I felt terrible and didn’t know whether to sleep or eat or just spend the evening in the bathroom. In the end I ate dinner and felt better for it. But then, when I was getting ready for bed, I wiped and there was a bit of blood. It seemed so ironic that the first blood I see for all this time happens the night before my scan I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I did neither and just went to bed and vowed to take the day off work.
After another sleepless night of worrying, I eventually got up and was relieved that there was no more bleeding at all. If I hadn’t shown wifey I would hardly believe it happened.
So we went to our scan – both extremely nervous about what we’d find, but it was fine! She found the baby really easily and told us it had a good strong heartbeat and was even doing pilate-esque sit-ups for us! It really was the most incredible thing in the world!
Told my youngest sister tonight as she came round for dinner and she was thrilled – was so nice to be talking to someone about it at last. Upset to find out my mum has already told her sister though even though I asked her not to on Sunday. She is hopeless!
Anyway, just really excited to finally have seen my little one and wanted to share!
