Well, what a crazy experience that was for us both! Myself and my Boyfriend Philip are together since June 17th 2014, he’s currently 27 since May and I’m 24 since June and on February 22nd 2017 we are both expecting our first baby together 👨👩👧! Words cannot even describe how excited we both are to start this amazing journey together and become one with our little loving family 💏.
So on the weekend of June 18th I was away in Waterford overnight for one of my best friends Hen Parties (Niamh) and so yes as you can imagine we were drinking since 12 that morning before we set off on the bus and then we went for a dance class… A meal and then all out to party the night away but for some reason I just couldn’t eat! Like I have a good appetite and I love food and I had a roll that morning and couldn’t manage anything else since… Even my meal I didn’t touch it and niamh had my desert lol my other bestie Kathleen was like wtf is wrong with you like why aren’t you hungry? I just laughed I really didn’t no why i wasn’t feeling hungry but at the same time I was pretty happy with myself that I hadn’t been eating all around me all day as usual 😂! Even the next morning I was just in such a wierd mood which I just put down to a hangover which I don’t really get usually but the fry I filled my plate at the buffet and made a sandwhich and could only manage like 3 bites! Then came the dreaded bus journey home which just felt like a lifetime! A lot of us died a death on the bus and snoozed but there was still a few drinking and dancing lol I just couldn’t cope 🙈 I got so bad I felt like I would just vomit everywhere I couldn’t even talk to people I had to keep my head by the window and focus on the road passing! I even made a plan in my head that worst case scenario I would get off the bus and ring Philip and he would collect me because being in the car with him would be a lot better lol and he would calm me down and mind me but thankfully I got back in one piece and survived the journey 😂!
So I’d say it was 4 days later the 23rd of June and my period hadn’t come yet and it was a few days late so I was worrying… I’ve had it be late before but never this late, so I rang Philip and was telling him and what if I’m pregnant and so on and he was like ‘Look just chill out you now for the evening and relax and I’ll go to the chemist on the way home and pick up a pregnancy test to prove to you that your not pregnant’ I was like okay perfect because I couldn’t even go buy one I felt so wierd like no it couldnt be like!
So he came home anyways went in and read the instructions ‘pee on the indicator and wait 2mins for line or two lines to show’ right so I peed on it put the stick on the bath rim next to me and the two of us just stared… Literally 2 seconds and the two lines came up showing I was pregnant 😦 Two of us just looked at eachother in shock 😂 That can’t be right sure it didn’t even take the 2 minutes to show up so id say I done it wrong! Right lets go get another one cuz that’s surely not right!! Off out to wilton we went to boots to get a digital pregnancy test to be more accurate! Also got a mint ice cream each on the way lol so at the counter Philip is asking the lady about the test we already did at home while I’m standing there just licking my ice cream… Not a care in the world because I knew it couldnt be real! The two women behind the counter stopped serving other people because they were getting such a kick out of Philip asking was the test 100% accurate 😂 I’d say they were saying those poor creatures don’t have a clue 😂🙈!
Went home anyways peed on the digital one and it comes up saying please wait… Two off us just stared at that stick for a few seconds until PING ‘2-3 weeks’ comes up😳!!! I literally couldn’t even speak… It definetly hit Philip more then me at the start because I was in shock and not in a disappointed way but just in a oh my god I can’t believe This way lol… Philip was saying oh my god I can’t believe I’m going to be a dad while getting teary and that I don’t have to worry about anything he’s gonna be there at my side and to mind me through it all and so on… Still not many words from me… Until I clicked back to reality and though oh my god… Philip were having a baby 😦 We’re gonna be parents and have a family like omg! The both of us said we were just so so happy that it was with eachother we were having this experience with. I really couldn’t have picked a better partner to share a little life with and to be a daddy ❤️ And we both got a bit teary then but happy teary!
I went to the doctor a few days later and had to pee on yet another stick and get my bloods taken which I was dreading because I am terrified of needless and have never even had to have bloods taken before but my nurse was so nice and u see standing it was okay 🙂 she confirmed we were 5 weeks pregnant at the time and have me some stuff to read through and later I got a date for the hospital appointment for my 12 week scan! So from 5weeks to after we had our 12 week scan we kept it a secret and had only told philips sister Colette and his brother Paul just because we knew they wouldn’t tell anyone. We really wanted to go around to our families and tell them all face to face ourselfs and we waited until the scan because we wanted to make sure every bring was okay 🙂 which it was thank god🙌🏻! We’re going to keep it a suprise wether were having a girl or a boy, something to look forward to 😍
And that is how we found out we were pregnant 👌🏻
Lots of Peace, Love & Laugher ❤️
