I woke up that morning feeling like something just wasn’t quite right. I couldn’t really explain why but I felt different. All that day I kept wondering and questioning ” What If ?” but I didn’t want to get my hopes up.
Later that afternoon, I had gone to get my eyebrows done and when that salon lady started threading my eyebrows I knew its a definite yes. I always don’t usually get any pain during threading except when I’m expecting. It gets stronger with a tingly feeling.
I went straight to the medical store and got 2-3 pregnancy tests.
I still kept saying not to have any expectations, we just had started to try for baby no.2 and getting pregnant in the first try its very rare.
I had a busy day planned with my sisters and forgot all about the tests until that afternoon after we reached back home from our lunch dates.
I peed on the stick and sat there and watched as two pink lines appeared, one was faint. My hands started to shake – I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t believe it. I carried it around for the next hour making sure I could actually see what I thought I could see. An hour later I did another test and it too had two lines!
Being the over-thinker that I am I had to make sure before I told Bivin my husband, so I went to the shops and bought like 5 more tests (as you do) and test the next morning with the first wee of the day because I had heard that was the most accurate.
That next morning I took another 2 tests, just to be sure of course. When I had all 5 positive tests laying on my bed staring back at me I was finally convinced and I felt a huge sense of joy and relief and I started crying happy tears.
WE ARE HAVING ANOTHER BABY!
It was right then as I was looking at the tests just laying there and thinking about the future that I realized the due date – April 2019. It was exactly 3 years TO THE DAY that I had told my husband that I was pregnant with Aura. Call me crazy but I think that’s pretty amazing.
My husband was over the moon when I showed him the test results. He was not scared or tensed or anything, he was so excited and literally jumped and laughed around the house. I grabbed Aura in my arms and said You’re going to be a big sister and she said: “Big sista big sista” with a big grin on her face.
I really want to say another massive thank you to everyone who has sent us so much love and support since our announcement! We are so grateful for this pregnancy and we feel so lucky and blessed that it happened when it did, its the perfect timing for our little family to become one little person bigger. This little raspberry sized baby is already so loved!
It’s so crazy that our baby has the same original due date as Aura. I can’t wait to share with you all this pregnancy journey, the ups and down.
