I've got a secret

I'm pregnant!
I am guessing most of you that read this will know that it was my intention, and that my reason for moving back to the UK was so that my child(ren) can grow up with extended family around them. Well, after just two months of trying, (and 2 years of preparing my body for this event) I am happy to report that I am pregnant. 4 weeks and 3 days to be precise.

I'm so excited and it's so hard not to tell everyone. I had a strong feeling that it was going to happen this month for a while. The first inkling I had that I was actually preggers was last Friday, but nothing showed up on the test. Later that day I was having lunch with my nan who started telling me how all the people in our family have birthdays the day before or the day after another significant date. I knew if I was pregnant, the due date would be the day after the anniversary of my grandad's death.

I tested again on Saturday and this time I really thought I could see a line, but it was so faint I had to accept the fact that I could be imagining it. On Sunday, halloween (!), I tried again. This time I was sure. My friend Tim came to visit and I made him look at it too. Finally he conceded that there might be a very faint line there. When he left he advised me me to stop obsessing - and not to POAS again for a few days!

Ha ha... I doubt that he had gotten out of the top of my street before I was at it again! My friend Rachel had given me a digital test, and when I looked at the box I discovered there were two! That was me decided then, even if it was too early I could always use the other test in a few days time. I did the deed, and expected nothing, but in no time at all this appeared.

It took a while to sink in.

I have actually done it!

I know that it's not the done thing to tell people this news early on, but frankly if something goes wrong I need a few people around me to know and understand so a few close friends are already in the know. I think I am going to tell 'Nanna' and 'Grandad' tomorrow. I wont go public for a while though, and this post will stay hidden for a few weeks.
