Tuesday is the day! I cannot even begin to describe my anxiety, it’s through the roof! My hubby and I are over thinking everything. We just can’t relax! I suppose this is totally normal?!
We’ve been in this boat before, and left the scan with broken hearts - an empty sac, a blighted ovum. Call it what you like... it was game over.
I’m trying to champion the positives of this ‘pregnancy’ thus far. I’m beyond tired, like napping level tired. I don’t nap.
The nausea... I can’t believe I’m having food aversions. Me! Mrs foodie!
I realise I’m lucky to get to this stage as many journeys don’t make it this far, and I want my post to be sensitive to that fact. This is the biggest emotionally committed I’ve been to anything in my life, and I didn’t realise I’d be ‘lucky’ to fall pregnant, albeit early days. We all deserve emotional pats on the back, and share virtual hugs for taking on this treatment minefield!
I want also to believe in this scan - to believe that this is our shot?! This is more than a blueberry - it’s our baby.
Thank you for reading and believe me when I say I’m on your side, everyone’s side. In a non patronising way. I want us all to come out of this as fulfilled individuals ❤️
