I know it’s not the most sensible way to tell your husband that you are pregnant for the first time when they are up a ladder, but it’s a sure fire way to know that you have their full attention.
There he was, halfway up a ladder for some reason and merrily minding his own business, while I’d decided to take a pregnancy test in the bathroom on a whim ‘just in case.’ Not for the life of me thinking it would come back positive.
Which is why he got me emerging and saying ‘look! Positive!’ and wondering why I got a big ladder wobble in return. 🙂
I don’t know what else I should have expected looking back!
I’d have been exactly the same.
Kids? What are they? I’d only ever seen babies when they were out and about with other mummies, and if any work colleagues came into work with newborn babies I’d be the one sat behind the desk still working away feverishly while all the other women went ‘awww, cute little baby’ and saw an excuse to skive off work for a bit and go and tickle the little one.
They all looked the same! What was the point?!
It’s different when it’s your own though. You know there’s a little life growing inside you and it’s all yours.
It doesn’t matter what everyone else is doing, or where they are in life. You have a little person growing inside you and that’s all that matters.
Just something you don’t really comprehend before you have babies…..
