Less than 9 weeks left till our due date and I'm feeling SO excited to meet our little girl.
My other half took a long time to come round to our situation and I honestly thought that he wouldn't be happy or excited until he met her or maybe even after that.
I know he's still of the opinion that this isnt the best course of action for us, but last night he turned round to me and said he's excited and ready to meet her now. We went shopping together for little clothes too and he didnt look like he wanted to vomit! for us, that is a major achievement. We've chosen a name for her and at night time he talks to my tummy and gives her a kiss. something I NEVER thought that we'd get to enjoy in this pregnancy. It makes me so happy.
I wanted to share this positive post with anyone who might be going through a similar situation in early pregnancy. Its very hard to feel like you're either letting your child or your other half down one way or another. I know I did the right thing keeping her and I think he's starting to understand that now.
When all said and done, the real moral is of the story is 'dont get pissed on holiday and forget to use a condom but if you do, stick by your gut feeling and try to remain positive.'
