How did you find out you were pregnant?
Like most people I took a test on the day of my missed period and up came them magical two little lines.
What were your first symptoms?
My lack of 2 week wait symptoms were my first sign that I was pregnant and then around 6 weeks I felt very tired and got nausea.
Who did you tell first?
Apart from Mark I told my best friend!
Who was with you when you found out?
I was with Mark. It was a wednesday morning and he had to rush off to work after.
Was baby planned?
Yes, we were TTC 16 months before it finally happened.
How far were you when you found out?
I was 4 weeks.
What was your reaction?
I cried with joy. I couldn't believe that it finally happened, it still amazes me to this day.
What was the baby's father's reaction?
He didn't believe the test. We had so many negative tests before this one it was hard to believe that there were actually two lines and not just one.
What was your parents reactions?
They were over the moon and very excited.
12th May 2012
Boy or girl?
GIRL! Mark said to me straight after we saw the positive test that she was a girl and he was right.
We have a few but that would ruin the surprise.
Who do you think the baby will look like?
We both think she will look like me with the same dark hair and dark eyes. We could see from the ultrasound that she already has my lips. I hope she has a little bit of Mark too.
Will baby have any siblings?
She will have a big sister in Millie :D
Have you and dad felt baby move?
Yes, we feel her all the time now.
Who will be in the delivery room?
Will you use medication?
I want to try have a natural birth but we will see what happens.
Are you scared about labour?
At this stage i'm very nervous.
How will you react when you see baby?
There is no doubt in my mind that I will be crying when I first see her.
Did you have morning sickness?
Yes, I had bad morning sickness. I actually ended up in hospital for tests.
Mayo, cheese, sandwiches, cake, chocolate, sweets, prawn cocktail crisps.
Did you have any mood swings?
Mark would probably say yes.
Formula or breastfeeding?
Breastfeeding but i'm not against formula feeding and if for some reason I can't breastfeed I will happily switch to formula.
When did you start to show?
Properly not until about 18 weeks.
Are you excited?
More than words can express.
Who will help with baby after their born?
Mark and other family.
What is your favorite thing about being pregnant?
Knowing that what I am doing is truly such an amazing thing. And feeling her move.
What is the worst thing about being pregnant?
Defiantly the morning sickness.
What one thing do you miss doing since being pregnant?
Probably fitting in my clothes lol.
Any days you wish you weren’t pregnant?
Never - It's the best feeling in the world.
Are you ready for baby?
Yes, more than ready.
How many kids do you want?
I would love 3 but Mark wants 2 so we will see :D
Do you talk to your baby?
All the time especially when she is wriggling around.
Do you still feel attractive?
I have my days when I feel rubbish but Mark is always there to tell me how beautiful I am. I think he really loves seeing me pregnant.

Not sure i'm having one :(
How many pregnant women do you know?
Loads of people I went to school with are currently pregnant but none of my close friends are which is rubbish :(
