What a day!

What a day!

As emotional roller coasters go today has been up there with them. Firstly we had our 6 week scan - and after scrunching up his face a bit looking at the monitor the doctor finally said 'congratulations'! He then showed us the screen and we got to see the fluttery tiny heartbeat and he put the doppler on it briefly so we heard the heartbeat too. Exciting stuff but he was quite adamant that we were not to get excited yet and that we should see each week as a milestone.

Then my sister messaged to update me on my Mum's cancer consultation this morning - and she is going back on chemo in January - bad as it sounds her consultant seems to thinks it's manageable for years....

And then I had to go and present to my company's board....which thank goodness they all loved.

But oh my goodness what a day. All I can think now is hold tight little one!

Hope everyone else doing well xx
