First and foremost, Happy New Year!! And what a year 2019 has been – we are pregnant! Can you believe it? I have set probably too many goals for 2019 that I didn’t achieve or even maybe attempted to. This thing with New Year’s resolutions feels great when you set them but not so great when you look back at all the things you even forgot to work for. Either way, 2019 was a fantastic year for me and you already know why.
It was about bloody time!!!! I thought this time would never come around for me to come here and tell you that WE ARE HAVING A BABY!!!!
It was the 13th of August and I had just come back from holidays back home, Portugal. We have been trying for a baby for the past 11 months and each cycle, a big fat negative. This journey wasn’t easy at all. I cried a lot, I thought that maybe I would never get pregnant and I even put the possibility of having to go through fertility treatments, specially as we were getting closer to the 1 year mark.
Anyway, I had been tracking my cycle using the “Fertility Awareness Method” and so I was well aware of when I ovulated and therefore aware of when my period was due. If it wasn’t for that I would have no clue. I got home from Portugal and the next morning I finally peed on a stick to see the two lines I have always wanted to see. It was positive, I was pregnant and I couldn’t believe it.
Since then we have been in this little baby bubble of ours planning all things baby related and watching my cute bump grow day by day. I am now 25 weeks pregnant and I can’t believe how quick time has gone. 2020 is the year our baby boy will be born. 2020 is the year where our lives are going to change, forever. I can’t wait to meet our little boy, I can’t wait to find out this new way loving someone that is a result of a loving and wonderful relationship of almost 9 years.
I can’t believe we are where we are now but I can say for sure that we are the happiest we have ever been.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you all a wonderful New Year 2020.
