Baby's First Festival





After finding out we were pregnant the weekend before, we realised we were going to SW4 in Clapham London on the August Bank Holiday weekend!!

We were going to a pre-party so I had to pretend I was drinking with everyone because we didn't want to start telling most people until we'd had the first scan! By the time we got to Clapham Common everyone else was quite merry so I got away with sticking to water. 

That was, until an eagle eye best friend noticed the photo above and asked me straight away if 'we had anything to tell her'! 

I think the not drinking is always going to be a bit of a give away if you're usually quite an active social butterfly.

It was such a good day/night and was funny to think that it was Baby K's first ever gig :)

The 2 Pink Lines!



Finding out I was pregnant was one of the most special (albeit slightly scary!) moments in my life. We had been trying for a while since we got married last year and things were taking longer than expected. We were actually about to give up for a while so I guess it's true what they say when you relax and let things just be, that's when it's likely to happen!

My cycles had been extremely irregular since I came off the pill and I was never sure when I was ovulating or when, if we had conceived, we should test. Over half a year of disappointment that comes with negative tests I left it really late to test in August. My cycle was at around 50 days when I finally decided to test!!

I decided that instead of building up the husband's hopes by telling him I was planning on testing, I'd just test first thing in the morning and see for myself first. The only problem was I woke up at 5am needing the toilet so had to test then. When it came back positive I just went back to bed and cuddled up to the husband with the biggest smile on my face and lay there for 3 hours thinking till we both got up.

I then made breakfast and wrapped the test up in tissue paper before handing it to him saying I'd gotten him a present. His reaction was the best thing ever. He looked really confused for a second then jumped up, had a little cry (which is hilarious considering he's in the forces and rather built with all the time he spends in the gym!) and gave me the biggest hug ever.

Was such a special moment.

Hope yours was too!

Hello!

It's taken me a while to get round to actually doing this but here I go!

I've always wanted to start up a blog but have always struggled to find the time or the right subject to keep me motivated. Now that I'm pregnant, it seems like the perfect opportunity to channel all the worries, questions, memories, exciting things that happen to every woman when she's pregnant, into one outlet where I can share things with others in the same boat.

I hope you enjoy following our progress and let me know if you're expecting too!
