My little secret

So I have been keeping a little secret from you all….


I am happy, sad, scared, terrified, worried, shocked, nervous, delighted and all the emotions in between.

I was really really poorly with Harry so it’s likely I will be this time, which terrifies me.

The older kids first reaction was not good. They were really worried about me and didn’t want to see me go through all of that again, but now we have chatted more about it, they have come around and are getting excited 🙂

Tom (OH) is really excited! This is our 4th child but his second. All the kids call and see him as dad and he loves them all equally but this is the second baby from the beginning, so he’s really excited. He’s obviously worried about me too 🙂

I am only 8 weeks and already all has not gone smoothly. I am on Ramipril for high blood pressure, I have been since having Harry but they started to make me really ill, I couldn’t get out of bed one day because I just wanted to pass out every time I got up, so I went to the doctors and they told me to instantly stop taking them (I had two days previously because I knew they were not doing me any good) because they are harmful in pregnancy 🙁 so now I have to visit the doctors weekly to keep an eye on my blood pressure, as well as keeping a check at home.

I also visited my midwife this week and have been told from 12 weeks I will need to be on Aspirin. I need two GTT because I had gestational diabetes with harry and I will need to see the midwife more times that usual. And I will be referred to the hypertension team soon.

I have decided to tell you all early because I am off to Britmums very soon and there is no way I can hide my bump, it’s huge!
