Hi my name is Mandy, i'm 18 and i live with my fantastic partner Glenn (29). Glenn and myself decided that we felt ready to start a family, i have always wanted to start young, i'm not sure why but people dont seem to understand that.
We had been trying for two cycles since i come off the pill and even though we got negatives after the first cycle and were extreamly disapointed(silly i know) I didnt really expect it to happen as fast as it did! When i was 1 day late on my second cycle i took a pregnancy test and it was a bfn. i figgured that since i had just come off the pill my cycle would be out but 4 days later i had to go to the doctor due to my first case of vaginal thrush which was horrible and strange. i thought maybe that was why my period hadnt come but the doctor said no and suggested that i take a test, i wasnt happy about this because i didnt want to be disapointed at the doctors with a bfn. But no! about 30secs into the test a line was begining to show and it just got darker and darker. Was so exciting to see that second line. I cryed tears of joy and the doctor said "its okay, you have ooptions" i was horrified, he thought i was upset i was having a baby when i had never been so happy in my life! I left the doctors and met Glenn in the car and showed him the test, i kept asking him over and over if he is happy, it was so exciting!
The past week has been really hard, i've had crazy emotions(bordering on depression at times) and have been feeling sick. My body looks strange, my bbs are significantly bigger and my tummy is very bloated, looks like i'm begining to show already but cant be! this week has been hard for Glenn too i've been difficult to deal with being so emotional and very tired.
i'm looking forward to my next doctor's appointment in a week's time! i dont know when i'll get to have an u/s but cant wait! so exciting, it will be good to put my worries to rest.
yay feel so good today, i slept in until about 11am and then got up and did housework all day! It was difficult to beleive that i was even Pregnant today.
i have a job interview tomorrow and one on wednesday! yay! it will be good to get a job so that i can stop stressing about money so much. I really didnt expect to get pregnant so fast and as soon as we started ttc i quit my high paying job because it was innappropriate for a pregnant woman. I thought i'd have an easier time finding a 3-day-a week job.
Grrr what a ****ty weekend and week so far...i heard nothing from my job interviews and then called them to enquire and they said they are still checking references! I'm sure thats actually perfectly resonable but it still annoys me right now.
I also managed to get myself very sick! so sick i wasnt able to get out of bed and was having a great deal of trouble breathing. but i'm feeling much better now because i got straight on to antibiotics. yay
I have another job interview tomorrow yay! job interviews are exciting
