Thank you SO much for all the comments and messages on my announcement. It means the world to me to have your support and lovely good wishes.
We have such a long way to go. At 42 there are so many risks and pitfalls to get past. I'm trying to take it one day at a time but I'd quite like to wake up at 21 weeks and be bored silly until the birth.
I'm still pregnant today which is good news.
I am nauseous which is good news.
My boobs are really sore which is good news.
I'm feeling frightened, anxious, restless and impatient which isn't so good.
Every time I feel a little... um... damp... I'm rushing to the toilet to check for blood. Which isn't good at all.
There's no blood at all which is super good fantastic news.
Hopefully the restlessness and anxious knicker checking symptoms will dissipate.
January is a looooooooooong way away.
Dr Compassion was speechless. "Oh............. wow........... er........... congratulations!"
Dr Compassion is contacting the consultant ob/gyn to get an appointment for me sooooooon.
I have a midwife appointment on Tuesday (in the UK the first appointment with a midwife is usually at around 8 weeks, I'll be 5w3d I think)
This is our last chance.
I'm so very glad you're all out there.
