The other part of the 2-parter

01 May, 2018

Back in March you may (or not) remember this article I wrote about facing your fears. It started out as a diary entry to document a really funny week and in it I referred to it as being a two-parter. There was a curveball Tuesday that I couldn’t share yet.

Here’s the second part… it has been THE longest wait to be able to share this and now I finally can.

I’m hoping that now this is out it allows me to get back into blogging properly because I completely stalled after getting this news!

I also need some advice so please keep going to the bottom and either comment on here or head to the Mums’ Days Facebook page and join the conversation there. Thanks in advance!

Tuesday – 13th March

On Tuesday night, Mike was at the top of Kilimanjaro about to reach the summit. I was in bed with my electric blanket on. Rock and bloody roll!

I was feeling a bit crampy, but it was only 3 weeks since I had my coil removed via laparoscopy, and my period hadn’t returned, so I wasn’t surprised. Then I thought I’d check how long it had been since my period should have started… a week and a half.

Is your mind going where mine went?

I had a bunch of pregnancy tests in the house from when I thought we were trying back in September (my coil had gone missing so it was assumed it had fallen out but instead it had passed through my womb and was on a holiday in my pelvis!) so I took a test. Just to rule it out.

I have some thoughts on taking a test just before bed:

DO. NOT. DO. IT.
