In my last post I left you guys with a cliffhanger. I did a second pregnancy test only this time with a different outcome…
“Girl,…. I can see a second line!! OMG A SECOND LINE!!!” Jesus Christ Kell… she replied. “You’re pregnant!!” You are really pregnant… Jesus, I couldn’t believe my own eyes.
Wow… those are some pretty good lines!! I ran upstairs and Sjors was already up and sitting on our bed. “We’re having a baby!!!” I screamed at him. He hugged me so tight and was so happy!! After the negative result two days ago he was also very disappointed so this was such a surprise!! In my gut I already knew but I wasn’t ready to give into it, he told me. So sweet right!!
A couple days after that we decided to tell our parents. They already knew we were “working on it” so what was the harm in telling them. Only happiness, right!
We bought this shirt saying “grote zus”meaning big sister in Dutch!!
A couple days after the test I e-mailed my midwife to apply myself again. She remembered us quite well and was happy to hear that we were expecting a second child. Luckily she had an opening for us and we could come over next week. I also applied for “moeders voor moeders” it literally translates to mothers for mothers. Between 6 and 16 weeks you pee in a cup and put it in plastic containers that they pick up and refresh every week. They make medicine out of pregnant women urine (hCG) for women who are infertile or when it’s hard to conceive. I did it with Noëlle and I was keen on doing it again! I will tell you more about it later.
Sadly, not the best quality photo! With a second pregnancy it’s like having the positive test and BAM… there’s the belly. This photo was made last week, 10 weeks pregnant! I already had to buy new pants ( with the soft front for the growing belly)… not so bad buying new clothes!
We are so in love.. so happy! This pregnancy feels like a dream. I have a very positive feeling about everything! Of course some people are already asking me if I’m not worried about anything going the same way as with my first pregnancy (burnout, premature birth, postpartum depression etc..) I can be very short on those questions because the answer is no. No, I’m not worried.. I have the best husband in the world who supports me every step of the way, I have a best friend who helps me to live a very positive life and I already have a child with whom I did go trough tough shit.. and she is damn perfect. I can handle it and as long as I’m staying positive it’ll all work out…
