My story began in August 2017 when by surprise, two pink lines appeared on a pregnancy test that I had taken in work on my lunch break. To say that I was surprised was an understatement. I had only taken the test as I had been having a few of the familiar symptoms that I experienced with my little boy Oscar 5 years previously. Never in a million years did I imagine that it would come back positive! I was both elated and nervous at the prospect of becoming a Mummy again, particularly as things hadn’t been easy for me over the previous years. I had experienced post-natal depression following the birth of my little boy and I was terrified of this returning, something that I thought was the worst thing that could happen… If only I knew! I had also had a succession of stomach operations to remove a lymphangioma (a rare cystic tumour) the latest one of which was open surgery and although I had recovered extremely well it had been tough. Once the shock had worn off and I had informed my husband we then began to become excited at the prospect of a new little addition arriving into our family… A blessing.
