Shortly after the wedding, Neil and I decided I would come off the pill and we would see what happened. We knew that we wanted a 3 year age gap between Noah and another baby so we thought we would go for it and start trying for a baby… my god did I feel grown up!! Anyway the first month went by and I was horrible, snappy and frankly hated Neil most days… (the first symptom I had when I was pregnant with Noah.) I was also 3 days late for my period with sore boobs and waves of nausea. Neil was at work but I couldn’t wait to do the test and to my surprise there they were… 2 pink lines!
I couldn’t believe it had happened the first month and felt ridiculous lucky! I had the biggest butterflies in my tummy as i imagined our little family complete. I wondered whether it would be a boy or girl and whether they’d look like their big brother. I was so overwhelmed by happiness but I didn’t want to tell Neil over the phone so I had to wait all afternoon to tell him. I’d already ordered Noah a ‘big bro’ top in the sale a few weeks back so when Neil got home, I put Noah in his top and sent him in with the test to give Neil.
Neil’s face literally lit up! It was quite a contrast to the first time we did a pregnancy test and got the biggest shock of our lives. Anyway, so here we go again! 2 pink lines, one big brother and two parents wondering how the hell do we do this again?! Can’t wait to start our newest adventure together and see Noah become a wonderful big brother!
