I wasn't expecting my very first post on my brand new blog to be a pregnancy announcement, yet here we are. I had a blog in the past, which due to work and university commitments, I decided to retire from. But having found out that I am going to be a mother by the end of the year, I thought why not give it another go, I *may have* the time after all.

We (Me & Matt - my boyfriend) found out that I was pregnant on Sunday 24th March 2019, after having taken a Clearblue Digital test which had come up pregnant literally 30 seconds after taking it, I would say I was in pure shock but I just had a feeling and deep down I already knew. I waited a bit longer and the 2+3 weeks pregnancy sign had come up, which means I was so far gone but couldn't know for certain, although I had a rough idea going from my (LMP - Last Menstrual Period). I started hyperventilating and freaking out, out of pure excitement that it was actually happening and I automatically facetimed my mum. My mum actually found out I was pregnant before I told Matt, as I tell my mum everything and it shows by the fact she was the first person I thought of. I started crying, my mum started crying. By this time I had rang Matt to come over and held the pregnancy test out and told him I was pregnant, I've never seen a man so happy before, he was so excited! 

I had originally took a test on Sunday 17th March 2019, I had used a rapid response pregnancy test, but because all the other tests had come back negative I had chucked it in the bin after a short while, being all impatient. I found that after I went to clean the bin out a week later in the bathroom, I took another look at the test and I was absolutely gobsmacked, it was only bloody positive! I would say it was an evaporation line but it was there clear as day and super dark! I felt bloody bad because the Saturday before I took the second test I had drank a few gins, but I didn't get drunk as I didn't feel like it and now I know why!

I am currently 13 weeks pregnant to this day, I should be due sometime the end of November but I won't find out until my dating scan on Saturday 25th May at 11:40am! I am super excited to see my baby on that screen again. Roll on the gender scan.
