After an uppy-downy kind of November where I had no pregnancy symptoms, a horrible throat/cough thing (still ongoing), a bad back and a very crotchety toddler daughter, all things pointed to another bfn. So, when my period didn’t show up yesterday – with none of my usual tell-tale signs – I thought maybe I’ve miscalculated, and it was due today… so I held off testing until this morning.
After a complete faff with the test (I’m not at my best in the mornings), it looked like I’d got myself a duff one as no lines at all came up. I tried to squeeze a few more drops out into a pot – oh the glamour!! – and nearly dropped it in the bath 😀 Anyway, after all the fumbling around, I took another look at the test, and two incredibly faint pink lines were appearing. They’ve got stronger and stronger and are now the positive one is thicker and darker than the test one… So, I’m pretty certain that counts as a positive result. My god, I’m pregnant!!
It’s funny how since deciding to go for number 2, it still feels quite strange when you see the positive test for real. Not nearly as scary as the first time mind you, but strange how yesterday it was a possiblility and today it’s real.
Now to start the merry-go-round of appointments, scans and myriad worries that all pregancies bring. If all goes well, we’re due our 2nd bundle of joy somewhere around 22nd July 2008. Whether we’ve made a boy or not is way down the list right now, having made the starts of a baby is plenty good enough for us 🙂
