I filmed the test. I think I must have known it was going to be positive, and I knew I wanted to document this baby from the very beginning (you really do forget once it's all over). Watching the pink lines appear I was absolutely shocked; as well as excited, scared, nervous, over the moon... any emotion you could think!
The next day I took a Clearblue Digital and just like that the words 'pregnant' appeared on the screen. It took what felt like years for '3+ weeks' to appear underneath! Not knowing how far along I was I contacted my doctors and got a midwife appointment straight away.
My first appointment was Christmas Eve 2014. My lovely midwife was brilliant and managed to get us an early scan for the 27th, just a few days away! The wait for horrible as neither of us knew if things were okay, and we chose to keep it all a complete secret too.
The scan was rather unpleasant (an internal one - not what I was expecting haha). But the second our little Pip appeared on the screen I completely relaxed. With a very strong heartbeat, and measuring 7 weeks 6 days.
I cannot believe this was a year ago. Parker is now 18 weeks old and the most beautiful baby boy I've ever seen. It was a crazy year. But probably the best yet!
