It seems like I have known forever. At times its been a lonely wait, knowing what I know, faced with problems along the way and without people to lean on and seek advice from. But now, after a wonderful telephone conversation with a nurse and OB, we can share our news. We are of course having a baby! The little button is due at the end of January next year. We are thrilled to say the very least.
Its a been a tough journey with losses and near losses and scary scan results. The last 24 hours have been terrible as we were told that there were serious concerns on the NT scan. I had mentally prepared myself for a CVS and/or amnio and all the trauma associated with those tests. Waiting for the blood test results just seemed like the longest 24 hours ever. But it turns out there is nothing to worry about. The poor nurse at the Dr's must have thought I was mad as I kept saying 'are you sure I don't need a CVS tomorrow?'
Minnie is of course very excited, in a 2 1/2 year old way. She is having her dinner and was heard just telling herself 'baby in the tummy and it will get bigger, and bigger, and bigger!
So an wonderful new chapter begins in our lives and we can start to really get excited about it.
What a glorious feeling this is...
