October 2016

Me and my partner had been trying for about 3 months and I was so happy to find out one week before Christmas that we were pregnant. It was the best Christmas present I could give him.

Christmas day I felt a bit down that I couldn't join in with the drinking festivities.

I got lots of alcohol as gifts as everyone had bought them way before.

Then on boxing day I started to bleed.

I was only 7 weeks or so but it was still every upsetting. I kinda felt angry with myself for feeling left out on Christmas day.

I am now 6 months pregnant so there is a happy ending.

Chin up to anyone that has had this happen at any stage of your pregnancy.
