After weeks of trying to come to terms with an unplanned pregnancy whilst facing my most challenging period of time at work, and looking after a home, a husband and 2 children, I decided that enough was enough. The overwhelming fear and sadness I was feeling could not be ‘normal’ and I was petrified that I would never feel any different. I still am petrified. But I’ve taken steps to tackle it because I really would like to start to enjoy this pregnancy at some point, and look forward to a new addition to my family.
