Been a while since I’ve done a blog post. Fell off the bandwagon. (again)
So a lot has being going down! And that being…I’m up the duff! So now it’s not just Life of Lil…it’s life of Lil and bump. (I know, original right)
As I’m probably most definitely going to be posting a lot about my pregnancy journey, I thought why not do a post from the very beginning of how I fell pregnant, how I found out etc..
Because if you’re anything like me, you’re nosey. (Let’s be real, we all can be)
I’d wanna know the down low. Was it planned? How did you find out… come on details please people!!
So basically I’ve been wanting a baby for forever! But the time wasn’t right & my partner wasn’t ready yet.We finally came to the agreement that we would start trying this year (January) … much to my disappointment. Like I’m really impatient, you know?
However we ended up going on a little weekend away to his home country of Romania in November (& without being too TMI) whilst getting down to it one night he decided he was ready to try for a baby & did the deed! I was so surprised. (I never really wanted to fully try and wanted the surprise, so it was kinda perfect)
Obviously, I never really thought it would actually happen from that one time! So we carried on doing the deed a few more times after that. I started to randomly get a feeling/ thought of “I bet it happens”…so I checked when I was ovulating and it was that exact weekend! (talk about timing) So I knew the possibly was there and so I decided to just chill out & see if my period would arrive or not.
About 2 weeks after that trip (or maybe even less) I woke up one day and felt really sick & then all of a sudden it passed & I thought hmmm maybe I’m preggers? I checked my period tracker and I wasn’t due on for another 4 days but I thought f*ck it, let’s just see.
I mean I had the thought that I could be but I didn’t think I would be.
So on my way to work I stopped to get a pregnancy test (okay 2) as soon as I got to work I did one and the faintest line came up! So I was sat there none of the wiser. Am I? Ain’t I?!
Answers please people!
So about an hour later I did the second test, the same line appeared! So I was still in limbo.
I managed to pop out again and I bought a few different brands, when I say a few, I mean like 6 more tests! (A girl has gotta be sure)
I peed on a few sticks and the lines were becoming darker this time and coming up straight away. Obviously me being me, I still didn’t believe it or think I was pregnant.
So on my way home I stopped and bought a digital. You know, just to be EXTRA sure incase all previous 8+ tests were wrong.
Sure enough it came up pregnant 1-2 weeks and I was like come on Leanne get your self together. You’re pregnant woman!!
So now that I was 99% convinced I knew it was time to tell the lover!! Ahhhh!
I had previously saw on Etsy a scratch to reveal card & I thought oh I will buy one, now we are trying it will get used one day! I just didn’t think it would be used this quickly!!
So I headed to his & gave him the card. He defo secretly knew then I reckon.
He was like “no wayyyy” and nervously paced around the room nervously laughing. I was in tears, asking are you happy? You better be happy? Cause this was your doing my friend…
He was happy. Turns out it just takes men a minute to come to terms with things!
So here we are… ready to embark on our pregnancy journey and excitedly waiting for meet our baby in August!
I will be sharing my pregnancy journey along the way… the highs, the lows and everything inbetween.
Lots of love, lil and bump x
