My partner an I saved up for a reversal sterilisation last year. I went into hospital and had it done privately in a hospital by a surgeon called Mr Moore who has the hands of a genius!
We so desperately wanted a baby and as much as I tried not to, I had it planned to the precise day for intercourse to optimise our chances. We called it our "window of opportunity". I know, very cheesy!!
The day I was due my period came up and I didn't have the usual signs and I'm like clock work! So I got a bit excited and took a test the day after I was due! As we were both at work at the time (we work together) I couldn't wait till home time and dragged him into the hall way and hysterically laughed as I told him it was positive, then promptly burst into tears!!
Needless to say he was very shocked and hugged me a lot but then very quickly went onto demonstrate how he has Super Sperm!! Bless him.
I am 5 weeks pregnant today and the only thing tainting this whole exciting experience is that there is a risk of an ectopic pregnancy with a sterilisation. I've had to get myself booked into an early pregnancy scan which I'll be having on the 1st March, this Friday! I'm petrified!!
My partner is being very positive about it all and is sure everything is great, especially as we've beaten so many odds already. I wish I could be as positive as him but until the scan I'm keeping it all under wraps a bit.
We've only told a couple of people that we had to tell but we're waiting till Mothers day next week to tell our mothers and then we'll tell all our friends after the 12 week stage.
Wish us luck for Friday and hopefully I'll be updating this a lot more for weeks to come. We've talked about doing a video diary as well, keeping a recording of everyone's reactions and the build up of the pregnancy. Something for baby to watch in later years!
Will catch up on the 1st and let you know how the scan went.
