I banged my head on the basin when I bent down to closer examine the two strong pink lines on the pee test. My heart started racing and I thought I’d throw up again. I rang Steve and told him to come home NOW and he was home within minutes. I was waiting for him on the doorstep wearing a pretty dress and holding a cute box that opened like a treasure chest. He ran up to me, scared and worried. He thought I’d been bit by a spider and I’d put it in the box lol. All I said was open the box. Of course he was expecting a spider to jump out, but then he saw it. The test sitting clear as day in the box. He cried, I cried…
We decided to tell Mum & Dad when they visited on Friday. Thankfully it was only one day of waiting. It felt like torture. We called our gyno and told him the news, Unfortunately he was booked solid until the 27th so this week was a very LOOOOOOOOOONG week. Today was the day and we drove over there nervous and excited. I just wanted to make sure our little bubble was safe and healthy. I had an internal ultrasound and straight away the Gyno said “Wow, yep there’s a baby” and that’s when I lost all breath. If I wasn’t laying down I would have fainted with shock.
There was our little baby. It’s little lips, eyes, sucking mouth. Dangly long legs and waving arms and hi-5ing fingers. It wasn’t the little bubble I was expecting. My bubble burst into a baby and I didn’t even realise. From the measurements the Gyno believes about 13 weeks. He ordered blood tests (4 tubes!) and I’m in the process of being reffered to a new Ob at Westmead Hospital. A lot of people are openly shocked that I honestly had no idea. 3 months pregnant and completely oblivious. Me of all people!!! To be honest I thought I was just getting fatter, hence the exercise classes!
So… that’s the story so far. It’s been one hell of a week. Completely turning my life on it’s heels and pointing us in a totally different destination. I’m not sure I’d have it any other way. Our little surprise. Our little Mez.
