namechanger- know people on here in RL and haven't told DP yet.

Ironically came off pill in new year because I felt that one day I would forget to take it and get pregnant- decide to go onto the Depo-Provera.

Now I'm only bloody pregnant.

Couldn't understand why I kept putting on weight- despite running and dieting, felt that it was a side effect of the depo.

Last week felt some 'flutterings' in my stomach- over this past week have noticed that my stomach is much 'harder' than usual.

Decided to do a PG test today- BFP.

DS1 is 13 in sept and DS2 is 10 in July-

i was promoted last year and this all just awful timing- life was getting easier with the kids- had visions of DP and I being able to actually 'do couple stuff' within the next few years.

im not 'sad' - just disappointed in myself. Thought the days of sleepless nights and nappies were way behind me.

We can just about afford another baby (just).

Going to GP tomorrow to see if I can get a scan because if I can feel flutterings, I'm clearly not 'just pregnant'.

and I can't even begin to find way to tell my best friend- who is just about to start her 7th round of IVF.

I posted early on in this thread (have NC since). I don't think it ever saw the update that your little baby had arrived. And now she is one! So glad I saw this today. Congratulations to you all.

Just read this thread for the first time. Wonderful wonderful story.

I joined MN around the same time as you tiredemma and remember talking to you on threads as your boys are a similar in age to mine.

Have a big lump in my throat smile.

(I too didn't realise it was a year old thread at the beginning!!)

Such a lovely story, and even better to know how things turned out!

One question... How did the IVF treatment go for your friend?

TurquoiseDress Sun 07-Sep-14 01:13:29

Have just read through the entire thread, not seen it before...amazing!

It made me cry!
I was in a similar situation- finding out I was pregnant in the second trimester, totally unexpected. First baby though.

This all happened this time last year so all the memories came flooding back & I started thinking over all the little things like telling family and how they reacted.
Going for the scan etc.
Utterly overwhelming!

My LO is now 7.5 months old grin
Happy birthday to your little girl!
