I HAVE A CONFESSION ...

I am currently 10 weeks pregnant.

Yes, you read that right. 

It was a HUGE surprise and it took me about a week to adjust to the idea as I was worried that Cohen would miss out on so much with me being pregnant again so soon but now we are thrilled to be adding to our little family. We had our first scan a few weeks ago where I discovered I was further along than I assumed and would have already been 5 weeks pregnant when I eventually tested.


As you may recall, I wrote a post awhile ago about whether we wanted to attempt to try for another baby or not (you can read that post here) and then we made our decision. Well, seems we were too late with that decision to wait awhile longer before TTC again and I ovulated on day 8 of my cycle which was around the one time we didn't use protection since Cohen was born. Fast forward 3 weeks and I was pondering why on day 29, no AF! I had all the usual symptoms of AF being on her way but she just wasn't appearing. Every day since day 26 I was saying to the HG that it still hadn't shown up and every day he would tell me to test, but I kept putting him off and telling him that it was ridiculous to test because there was no way I could be pregnant ... I hadn't even been fertile at the one time of the month we didn't use anything (or so I thought!). Come day 29 though, I gave in and decided to test. I tested and watched the control line appear and walked away telling the HG that I wasn't and having a laugh about even testing (cos we all know those stupid things don't work!). 2 minutes later and I hear the HG going 'Um, babe, you might want to look at this' to which I replied 'Bugger off!'. But sure enough ... 2 lines. And again on the next test that I made the HG go out and buy after discovering the first one was a year out on its expiry date. I spent the rest of the night repeating 'How does this even happen?'.

Seems some Urban Myths can come true and come this Christmas Cohen will be a big brother!

NOTE: Please if you know me IRL on FB, do not say anything as we will not be announcing until after we have had our 12 week scan on the 28th May and know that everything is ok. Thanks.

  3. OMG! Congratulations! That is so amazing. A natural BFP after those years of trying. You must be shocked. I think it will be lovely for Cohen to have a sibling so close.

  15. That is awesome! Congratulations! But wow, you've unsettled me! I relate to you so much and many of our experiences have been similar. My little boy, conceived after 3 rounds of IVF, is 3 weeks younger than Cohen. I was quite happily chugging along, accepting that he would be an only child and dismissing all those urban myths about 'my body will know what to do next time'! Now you've got my brain ticking!! Perhaps my husband and I should be trying harder! Ha ha - enjoy your pregnancy, your story really is amazing.

  19. Congrats!!! Your blog helped keep me positive during my 2 IVF cycles last year. I gave birth to my beautiful daughter in March this year. Now I'm currently over 8weeks pregnant with a naturally conceived baby. How does this happen?? I never believed it would happen to us, we are so lucky. There's hope out there for others! All the best for the arrival of your next son!!
