As if seeing one positive urine test isn’t enough to put you off your dinner today I’m bringing you another one.
The one from O? I hear you cry hopefully, fingers crossed that this will be our last foray into positive pregnancy tests.
Alas you are not that lucky.
This is the test I did to check I was still pregnant a couple of days after the first test in 2008/2009. It may have even been done in response to the bleeding.
I convinced myself that it was all over. I even looked up keepsakes on the internet to try and find something suitable to wear to remember.
I had a Quality Street tin where I kept the tests and a coat I bought to remember “August” by in case he or she were never meant to be. (August being my estimated due date based on my own calculations).
In January 2009 I had my first scan as I had been bleeding for a week or so.
We saw the heartbeat on the screen, and described it as being similar to a flicking cursor. We are geeks.
It made me happy and terrified and super moody.
My EDD was the 2nd of September; the day before OHs birthday. I joked that because I was giving him a kid for his birthday he wouldn’t be getting video games.
I actually can’t remember if I bought him anything.
