Sometimes things happen in life which completely alter the path you had planned to follow. Your path may drastically change direction or it may just be a tiny bump in the road. However, when life changing events crop up it can feel like your whole world has been turned upside down.
That’s exactly what happened to me…
On July 9th 2014 I found out I was pregnant. To say it was a massive shock is an understatement.
Being on the depo injection I thought I was pretty safe so that these little surprises wouldn’t crop up. This little peanut had other ideas. Denying the odds of 99% success rate with my contraception, I became 1 of 3 out of every 1000 people to fall pregnant on the depo injection.
To start with I had a complete mix of emotions. Scared. Excited. Confused. I didn’t know how to feel. I had only been with my boyfriend since January and there were still a lot of memories that we wanted to make together before we even thought about things such as this.
With the help and support of our friends and family (who I definitely couldn’t of done it without) we are now preparing for the arrival of our little surprise early March 2015. I am so happy and excited I really can’t wait. Yes it is still a massive shock and it is going to take a while to get used to the idea but ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to be a Mummy, and having Callum by my side I couldn’t ask for a better Daddy for our little one.
So I am now 14 weeks pregnant and the baby is the size of a lemon (can you believe it). After a rocky start at the beginning and a few complications, things are going well. Baby is growing perfectly and morning sickness has finally given me a break (for now).
I am now beginning to look forward to the future and not dwell on the things that I may or may not miss out on but to enjoy this special time and to get excited for the new life I am about to encounter with my new little family. My paths may have changed but they have changed for the better. I am extremely lucky to have such a delicate little thing growing inside of me and for this opportunity. Words can not explain how grateful I am to be experiencing this with the most perfect boyfriend a girl could wish for.
Baby Smith – Expected March 2015.
Love Tilly and (not even there) Bump xx
