That is really really amazing! Congrats.

I laughed out loud when the first person suggested 'maybe you had sex and forgot'.. but it turned out to be true!

The being terrified thing is totally normal. A few nights after we got our BFP, I clung to DH in bed and sobbed for ages because I didn't know how life was going to work out.

Congratulations!!!

So lovely to hear you are feeling a bit more excited now! Was your DH able to come to the scan with you? That would have made it feel really real for you both!!

And honestly don't stress about money. People are very generous when buying for babies and there are so many things on sale all the time that there is no need to buy things full price. If I could go back in time, I would have only bought a Sleepy Wrap and an Ergo (baby carriers), a few good quality all-in-one babysuits, a car seat obviously and thats it! Newborns just need lots of love and cuddles, that is essential original.gif

Enjoy your pregnancy original.gif

Yes, DH was able to come with me, although he insists that he couldn't really see anything in the scan. It was lovely to be able to do it together.
