And then there were three…new adventures in 2020!
Happy New Year everyone and I hope that 2020 is treating you well already.
As I mentioned yesterday, in my post about the highs and lows of 2019, there is one more piece of exciting news that I would like to share with the world.
As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen
2020 is the year that we will become parents!
Our baby is due in February (next month!) and I am super-excited to welcome this new addition to our little family.
Needless to say, I am already accumulating a pile of baby books!
And so, the adventure begins…
This time last year I was ill, and had to face the prospect that we might not be able to have children. This was a pretty tough thing to come to terms with because I had always assumed that I would have the choice.
So much of our education around pregnancy focuses on not getting pregnant, but I have since discovered that so many people around me have been through years of heartbreak because so many things can go wrong. Yet, despite how common it is, it is not something that is easy to talk about.
I spent the first three months of my pregnancy trying not to get my hopes up, because of the awareness that things might not work out, despite being sick constantly.
I cried my eyes out at our 12-week ultrasound because there was an actual baby there. Immediately, it seemed like nothing else mattered.
At 16 weeks I felt the first kicks, and couldn’t help myself falling instantly in love.
At 20 weeks, scans showed no abnormalities and we could, at last, tell some of the people around us. At 21 weeks, I eventually stopped vomiting (yay!).
Since then, baby has been turning tumbles inside me and I am already completely besotted. I can’t wait to meet our new family member.
It has not been an easy journey, but I am so excited about this new adventure.
Welcome to the world, little Jellybean!
What are you looking forward to in 2020?
What new adventures are coming your way?
