Five Weeks Pregnant

27th June 2016

Well, I told everyone. Everyone knows now.

I didn’t have the guts to tell him in person. I had every intention of dropping the “I’m pregnant” bomb in person, but it kind of just came out over text. I did end up going over to his house (because I’m not a monster) and we had a chat. It was good. It was a long chat and we ended up having a nap together.

I was all about naps. Being seven weeks pregnant was no joke. I swear all I did was eat, sleep, and try not to puke.

The rest of the week was relatively uneventful.

I told my boss and a few people at work that I was pregnant. We had a change of kitchen management, so I didn’t want my boss to think that I was completely hopeless.

I also told my best friends. One burst into tears within seconds…and it completely blindsided me. I thought would be the one crying in this scenario, so I wasn’t prepared for when she started crying! I think her exact words were: “It feels like you just told me that I’m pregnant and that I’m the father of your baby, too.” I died. I knew exactly what she meant.

We called my friend and I shouted the news at her.

I never imagined that she would have been so excited about me being pregnant. I remember being in high school and making a pact to have a partner and a baby by the age of twenty-two. Now, it seems absolutely ridiculous. Twenty-two is not old at all. I suppose it did seem a long way off when we were twelve or thirteen. Ah, how naive we were.

Well, it looks like I’m the one who is starting off the pact.

  1. I love reading your posts and your documentation of your journey!! I’m sure in the future you’ll love reading back of these posts as well 🙂 must feel great to have now been able to tell friends and family bout your pregnancy, it’s awful having to keep such huge secrets! Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂


    1. Yes! I love writing them. I never thought I would have kids, so it kind of feels surreal to be typing the words ‘I’m pregnant’ every couple of days haha. It was so good to tell them! I think I just needed time to get my head around it before I told the people that were closest to me. Thanks love! I hope you have a good one too 🙂


    1. They were surprised, but they are so, so excited now haha. Some of my friend’s mums have even made stuff for the baby! I’m so thankful and just … dhfkdf. There are so many emotions. Hormones, right? Haha. He took it well. He’s now my ex, but he’s still a lovely guy and we talk most days. I wish someone told me that! Haha. I went from being 12+2 to 13+5 in one appointment! It kind of blew my mind. Hope you’re doing good!
