On Tuesday the 2nd of May, my world changed. My focus shifted and I knew that things would never be the same again (cliché, but completely and irrecoverably truthful). For weeks I’d noticed my body changing, but on doing pregnancy test after pregnancy test they’d come back negative. Thinking nothing of it after that, I continued doing my HIT training, carried on using my weighted hula hoop and kept up with my contraceptive pill.
Now, I’m sat down finishing this post off after being with Mike in the ultrasound room with the nurse. We both stared at the screen as she showcased our little sweetheart, who is healthy and happy – and a little shy as they kept turning away from the ultrasound. We have to go back in a few weeks to have another scan, as baby is a little too small to be dated (2 millimetres short!) but in all honesty, we are simply happy to have an approximate age. After my disaster with the contraceptive implant, I’d had no periods to date the baby – just a little spotting here and there – so we didn’t have a clue. Parenthood is going to be a new challenge, but I’m so excited for our journey ahead.
