8+1 Weeks and Bloating

26 Jun

I’ve decided to start this blog as a way to allow our friends and family to follow the progression of our little bean. It came as a complete shock that we should fall pregnant at all with me having PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). So, now we’re adapting to our surprise, and miracle, and crossing our fingers that the pregnancy goes well and the baby is strong and healthy.

How We Found Out I Was Pregnant

On the train back from Dublin and I was feeling terribly tired and nauseus, but we had been travelling most of the day and had done the Bloomsday walk the day before, so I thought nothing of it. The day after getting back my desire for deep-filled apple pie and the need to push out my stomach was enough to get my darling husband asking if I was pregnant. “No Way!” But, two days later and a positive pregnancy test begged to differ.

Some of my Initial Thoughts and Feelings about Expecting a New Baby

There are many different emotions flying around our household at the moment. Amazement. Fear. Excitement. Anxiety. I had lost a baby in 2007 at 5-6 weeks. My fears and anxieties are mostly because of losing her but also the fear of change. We are very happily married and are the reason for each others existance. I don’t want to lose that.

Doctor/Midwife Visit

June 21-22, 2010

It was estimated that I was a little over seven weeks pregnant and the estimated due date is February 04, 2011. Both the doctor and the midwife appeared very satisfied with my symptoms and gave me several words of support due to my concern of miscarriage. The midwife took many blood tests and put me forward to have a scan between 10-14 weeks. The appointment I will receive in the post. That I am terribly excited about.


So here we are. 8 weeks pregnant. Boobs feeling as though they could explode and the tiredness and nausea is calming down only really acting up in the evenings.

So here are two images from 7+3 weeks and 8+0 weeks
