An Early Christmas Surprise
Do you remember a while back I was a little worried that I might end up pregnant at Christmas...?
I had thought about taking a break quite a bit and then I just couldn't bring myself to it. After almost 2 years and 4 miscarriages in a row, if there was any chance at all of creating a healthy pregnancy, I didn't want to miss it... so I decided there would be no breaks to be taken.
It kind of looked like we would be in the clear as far as Christmas was concerned, but since I do seem to fall fairly easily, I thought I had better take a test Christmas Eve just to be sure (especially given all the Christmas cocktails we had planned to make... hehehe)!
I had really been trying to put the pregnancy issue out of my mind lately, but throughout the week I had been feeling a bit off...
Gastro had been going around, so I told myself that it was probably just had a mild case of that, but decided JUST IN CASE, I had better make sure to take a pregnancy test on Christmas Eve.
Usually, you can test 5 days early, and this Christmas Eve would be pretty much a week early, so WAY too early to test, but you know, it is good to have some peace of mind.
So the night before Christmas Eve, I carefully placed a test next to my bedside table so I wouldn't forget to do it (I do tend to get a bit scatter-brained sometimes)
...and first thing in the morning on Christmas Eve I went in to take the test...
...which to my surprise, had a very faint positive line!
I figure a faint positive a week early is a pretty good indication of a real positive (plus there's those sick feelings I'd been having for the past week....)
So there we go.
No cocktails for me this Christmas... (or fresh prawns... or other fun of any kind...!)
Kidding! I can still have a good time without those things.
I wasn't sure how I would feel this time around (it is our fifth pregnancy after all...) but I feel OK. I think what Sam said when I told him the test result this morning sums it up fairly well:
"Yaaaaayyyyy..... kind of"
I always have hope, even though I know the odds of a healthy pregnancy are slim, so I'm taking it as an "early Christmas present surprise" and we'll hope it turns out to be a good one 😉
Until next time, Merry Christmas. I hope you get some nice surprises this year too.
