plan a again then

Okay, I'm blogging from bed today - not entirely good news; I've had some spotting and the doctor has said to retire to my boudoir for forty-eight hours and not lift a finger.

I was very scared last night, but have spent most of today snoozing and chilling out.

Thank you all for all the good wishes, it is good to know that so many people are rooting for us!

We had no idea at all, really. We've had so many false alarms over the last four years that we've really stopped thinking about it. But I've been feeling a bit sick on and off since Christmas and all of a sudden it seemed like I'd put on weight and I needed to buy new bras. And then it got to the point where I thought I should probably do a test - on Tuesday - and so I did.

And there was the little pink dot.

Odd how something so small can be so life-changing.

Anyway, I'd done the test while B was letting the chickens out. I presented it to him as he was taking his wellies off. He looked at it and said "Well, I wasn't expecting THAT this morning. Do you want a cup of tea?".

And we spent the day kind of assimilating the information.

It's a very big mental jump to go back from Plan B, which is so far advanced, to Plan A, which we'd pretty much abandoned. We're both treading cautiously - it's very early days, as the last twenty four hours have reminded us.

Also, major crisis - tea seems to be making me feel nauseous. Gah!

  3. Be gentle with yourself, no matter what happens.

    If Plan A goes ahead smoothly (or smoothly enough, at least), will you completely abandon Plan B?

  5. It may not be the tea, but the milk. Hugs from me too.

  6. Big, big hugs from here, too. Just take care of yourselves. Do you like ginger biscuits? Even a cup of hot water helps - that is if you can't take the milk or the tea. Loadsaluv, kaz :o)

  8. Hugs is a splendid idea. Gentle ones, mind.

    Everything that can conceivably be crossed, is.

    If you move from feeling nauseous to being sick make sure you keep your fluids up, if can keep them down. If you know what I mean.

  11. I could not drink coffee when I was pregnant with my daughters, although it was no problem when I was carrying my son. I think they start asserting their individuality even before they are born. Lot of hugs from me, too.
