I'm having a baby!!!

My baby
It's fair to say it's been the craziest 2-3 months I think I've ever had in my life.  It started off in Jan with the loss of my brother, which you all have probably read about or heard me talking about.  Then I became ill with a cough, chest infection and flu, followed up with bad asthma for weeks.  Then, my husbands auntie died after a long illness.  At this point we were thinking, lets just get to the end of 2014 so we can write it off and be done with it!  Such a bad start to the year, and it seems we weren't alone, I've seen lots of other friends/bloggers having a tough time too, in a way, it was nice to know we weren't alone.

Then, on the 27th Feb, our world turned upside down in a really wonderful way.  We found out, we're having a baby!!!!!!!!!

Yep that's right, I'm going to be a mummy!  I'm officially 12 weeks now and telling everyone.  It feels very surreal but we're super happy.  We'd actually been trying for a baby for about 8 months, and we'd pretty much given up trying, or thinking we'd get pregnant.  Looking back, I had so many symptoms but had attributed them to other things, like side effects of the antibiotics (metallic taste in my mouth and heartburn) or my being ill and stressed (missing a period, achy boobs <-- that was me thinking my body was trying to come on, not my boobs getting ready for a baby!).  So when I went to the Drs about my asthma still being bad, I'd mentioned these symptoms too thinking it was linked to anxiety about all the bad things that had happened, that's when she said 'You really should do a pregnancy test'.

So on leaving the Drs, we went to grab my prescription of steroids (for my asthma) and picked up a £3.50 Sainsburys pregnancy test too.  Got home, did it straight away, and fully expected it to be negative, I've been through this so many times (skipping a period through stress, then thinking I'm pregnant, doing a test, seeing it negative, then coming on the next day!), so this all felt routine.  What I didn't expect was a big, fat, positive test!  It all made sense though, with all the symptoms, the only thing I haven't had is morning sickness, but I have been nauseous.  

Anyway, all that matters is that we're due to be having our little baby on October 13th and we're super happy about it.  Now we have to make some decisions, if we stay in our house, we have to make some serious changes because as things stand, there's no room in our bedroom for a cot etc, or do we look to move? This is all while my hubby is studying for an open university degree while working full time, safe to say we have our hands full!

What does this mean for Makeup-Pixi3?  Well, I fully intend to continue as normal, but if you'd be happy to read them, I'd like to start doing pregnancy updates, maybe just once a month or twice a month and once the baby is born I can include him/her in some of my posts too, so they'll be more lifestyle - what do you think?

How often would you like to see pregnancy updates?  Every week, every other week, monthly?

    1. Thanks Laura :) Yeah I really didn't think it was ever going to happen, so very happy it did :)

      There won't be any bump pictures though I'm afraid, I'm quite overweight so it's not really going to show for a long time, and even then, I'll just look more overweight :P
