I came home from work today to discover a letter stuffed in my letter box from the hospital. Having had my blood test a few days ago, I started to worry, and opened it on the doorstep, with a bag of shopping, in the cold. Then I saw it was from the Ultrasound Department, and got excited. It was the letter telling me when my first scan is booked in, which is 24th May at 9am. I can’t wait, but I’m so nervous at the same time. I’ve emailed my boss to let her know what date my scan is, and have asked to take the whole day off, just in case I don’t hear what I want to, I know I could not handle having to go into work afterwards.
I text my boyfriend to tell him the date and time of the scan, he told me he has to go to work straight after, so reminded him we may not have good news, and we have to be realistic, but I feel like he just keeps thinking about the baby that’s hopefully going to come out in 6-7 months time, and how amazing that will be. I guess it’s difficult, it’s not as if he feels the pains, the sickness, and anything else that makes me worry. It’s not his body that is changing. I guess it is completely different for the guy…
Also completed the risk assessment at work today, main things we picked up on was the standing for long periods and the heavy lifting. Obviously a lot of it is common sense, in that if I don’t feel comfortable lifting something, then I shouldn’t.
Anyway, I’m excited for the scan, it makes everything so much more real. Before then, I’ve got family to tell, a trip back to the North where my family and closest friends are in the next week or so is already booked in for other things, so we will use the time wisely.
