Finding Out That We Were Expecting Baby #2 ♥

On September 4th we found out we were expecting baby #2. I don't know why I woke up feeling like I should do a test, I wasn't even late, but I asked Jacek to pick up a test on his way back from bringing Tyler Lee to pre-school. When he came home and handed it to me I didn't even go and do it straight away, I was fully convinced that my 'time of the month' was on it's way from the dull cramping aches I was having in my tummy, plus, we had been trying for months and I had got it into my mind that it would never happen... how wrong I was!

I did the test and waiting for the results, fully convinced that 'not pregnant' would flash up on the screen as it had done many times before. I even went into our bedroom to get a pair of socks as I was freezing - lovely Irish weather and wasn't even contemplating the fact that it would be positive. So can you imagine my absolute surprise when I went back into the bathroom and the word 'pregnant' was on the screen. I gasped, I literally gasped and said "oh my God!" I could feel myself tearing up in disbelief as the little hourglass symbol was working away trying to see just how far along I was, then '1-2 weeks' flashed up on the screen. It was official, I was pregnant and I was surprised, amazed, teary, emotional and happy, so so happy.

I had wanted to wait until September 24th, our 4 year anniversary to tell Jacek that we were expecting another precious little bubs but I blurted it out to him straight away when I went downstairs! I think he was in shock and disbelief too, we were so convinced that it wouldn't happen for us again.

As we sat there talking about everything and discussing all our hopes and dreams for this pregnancy and our new baby I started tearing up once again when I said "Tyler is going to be a big brother" - I think that's what made me emotional the most! Our little boy is going to have a baby brother or sister and that makes me incredibly happy!

When I picked Tyler Lee up from school later on in the day I said to him on the drive home - "Tyler, do you want to know a secret?" He said "ya" in that sweet little way he does, even though I knew he had no idea what I was talking about! I then told him - "Mummy's going to have another baby, you're going to be a big brother". His reply was "baby", rather dreamily. From that moment I have begun speaking to Tyler Lee about the baby, he says "hi baby" or "bye baby, see you baby" if he's not happy to talk about it. I've found that he's become very gentle with me, rests his head on my tummy and has even given 'love' (kisses) to the baby when shown where the baby is, it is so incredibly sweet and I feel so blessed. He's going to be such an amazing, caring and loving big brother.

I'm writing this post at exactly five weeks pregnant and am dying to publish it - I hate keeping secrets! I'll wait until after our announcement though, it was good to get this all written down now before I forget how it all happened and how we all felt about our impending bundle of joy.
