Oh my God!
So, it's finally happened. It seems like we've been trying forever (in fact it's only been 7 months) and I couldn't believe it this morning when the magic little line appeared! Have been walking around in a daze all day.
As I'm at a complete loss with what to do with myself, I thought I'd start this blog as a form of therapy and as a way of putting down all my very muddled thoughts in a coherent way (or semi-coherent at least).
So, it turns out that I'm 4 weeks pregnant. Have just been to see my gynacologist (who I love and adore, she is the most amazing woman and calmed me down no end) and she's going to do the first scan on December 11th. I was, of course, completely panicking about miscarriages, and had been feeling some tightness in my abdomen, but she made me feel so much calmer about the whole thing. She even said that I can tell my family at Christmas, which had seemed too early to me, but now that she's okayed it, it seems like a great idea! God love her. I have even considered naming the baby after her.
I saw on someone else's blog that they had put down their important dates, so I'm going to do that too, just in case my brain gets fried with the pregnancy and I forget.
