I am pregnant. My baby is perfect, no health concerns, just a healthy baby boy. Baby is due 15 days after Bella's birthday, so October is proving to be our lucky month. Not only we met in October 14 years ago, then our daughter was born in October and now our son could be born in October.
It took me a long long time to grieve and process the loss of Francesca in 2012. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her, that I don't think of how our life could be like with her in it. I went through some dark dark moments but made it through. What really helped me was acupuncture especially to regulate the hormonal imbalance left after the loss and the anxiety and panic attacks. I never felt such peace and calm after a session of acupuncture. The first time I was hooked. My doctor was very direct but very good and she knew exactly when to stop. 4 months after stopping my sessions I got pregnant, naturally so.
We did genetic testing to see if we are carriers of chromosomal abnormalities which we are not. After that we thought of trying again naturally seeing it happened before. It did. We conceived the baby just before Valentines day. I knew I was pregnant. I kept it quiet for 2 whole days, waiting for the test results to come back for my blood work. I didn't want to tell D and then it being a false positive. All very unlike me. I made him a lovely video which at the end said he was going to be a daddy again... He was floored and so so happy.
We waited to tell everyone until we got the all clear at the 13 weeks much dreaded nt scan. Everything was absolutely clear. Everything was perfectly fine. Baby was healthy, normal Nuchal translucency, bowls were inside his body, he had a nasal bone and his heart was perfectly formed. We were in tears, we brought our daughter along, even though we didn't want to it ended up being that's way. She was super excited to have a little baby in our house. That night we told everyone, we shouted to it to the world. We could not contain ourselves.. We were and are so happy. We know how blessed we are. Life is good, actually life is Bloody Great! I haven't blogged in years... I have missed it.
