SURPRISE! The secret is out Simon and I are expecting our first baby!
That’s right I am pregnant, as I write this I am currently 17 weeks pregnant, which seems like nothing but feels like forever already.
We are so excited and cannot wait for probably the biggest adventure of our lives!
When I found out I was pregnant it was very early, I was about 2 weeks at that point. I just felt ‘different’, which is weird to say but I can’t even describe how, it was just well ‘different’. It was scary at first, I have always wanted to be a mum but suddenly for that be a reality made me nervous. It took a few weeks to fully come to terms with it, between my husband, close family and I, it became so real.
We have since had a scan and seen our little swimmer (as we like to say) and oh my goodness, it is like nothing I could have ever imagined. That is when it really hit my husband and I that we would be parents soon. Despite that it was one of the best moments of my life getting to see our little baby and see their little heartbeat on the screen.
Now I am aware this is very vague and doesn’t really explain anything about my pregnancy but I just wanted to share the exciting news with you all. I will in a later post talk about my first trimester and how I am feeling now in my second trimester.
Next week I will talk a little bit about the current situation in the world and how it has been being pregnant and isolated!
*It is easy to be swept into a pit of darkness with everything going on at the moment. I feel it is important to try to stay as positive as possible, though I know this can be difficult.*
