I have a little secret...

I've got a little secret...

I am pregnant! (Yes it feels strange saying that)

I cant believe it... 9 months trying to conceive and we did it!
Only James and I know at the moment and just keeping my blog on the quiet until we get to the important 12 weeks.

Here are my first 'signs' of pregnancy:

- Strong sense of smell (cooking smells were and still are strong, the bin has been emptied more times than I can count)

- Extreme tiredness (I spent the entire Easter weekend asleep)

- Lots of tugging in my stomache

- Gone off chocolate (very serious)

I then started getting this tugging, pulling and stretching in my abdominal area quite like PMS cramps. This, I thought, was really strange as I don't normally suffer with PMS. After a few days of the cramps, I decided on a whim to purchase a pregnancy test.

After 'doing my business' I didn't have to wait long for the test to develop before I got the 'Big Fat Positive' that we had been desperately wanting.

When I saw that cross, this huge sense of relief, happiness, shock, excitement, nervousness... then all of a sudden sheer panic!
I am a natural worrier and can worry about anything and everything. However, I am determined not to worry about what I can't control. I know anything can happen at anytime during a pregnancy although, I am going to do my best to make sure little 'pea' sticks.

I went and got two more tests - the Clear Blue Digital ones and did a second test this morning. Low and behold, another positive result!

I am tempted to do the second digital test a couple of days later just to see if the screen changes. I have two dates in mind that could have been 'the ones' and it will be interesting to know which date it was - plus, I don't want to waste the spare test!

Now I need to ring the Doctor's surgery and book in for a confirmation appointment.

This is so overwhelming and I can't believe it's real.

Fingers crossed everything goes well.

Meet Mabel

And so it has happened... we have welcomed a 9 week old kitten into our household!
She is utterly adorable, so fluffy and full of character!
I can feel the stress falling away already.
I am in love.
