pregnancy announcement

Great Expectations

On May 3rd, right in the middle of our kitchen remodel, and at the exact point when the house most resembled a building site, this happened:

positive pregnancy test

I PEED ON A STICK AND THEN I TOOK A PHOTO OF IT AND PUT IT ON THE INTERNET, OH GOD, WHO EVEN AM I?!

Now, although this wasn’t entirely unexpected (I mean, I DO know how these things work, obviously. Also, I had a feeling. Yes.), finding out you’re pregnant after an ectopic pregnancy, or miscarriage – or, in my case, both – is a very different thing from just finding out you’re pregnant in “normal” circumstances, and, because of my relatively high risk of having another ectopic, plus my overly-generous dose of health anxiety, what should technically have been a really happy and exciting time, was actually pretty scary and stressful all round – and I’m not just taking about all the vomiting, either.

Happily, though, four ultrasounds, multiple blood tests and a whole lot of nausea (OMG you guys, the NAUSEA. PRAY FOR ME.) later, I’m very, very relieved to say that I’m now safely past the 12 week mark, and headed for the second trimester – and since the opening of this post pretty much set the tone for over-sharing, and I’m guessing some of you are probably thinking, “The pee stick is all well and good, but it would be great to see a photo of Amber’s uterus round about now,” here you go, your wish has been granted:

pregnancy announcement(There is just one baby, not four. I did have a couple of very panicked days where my HGC was so high we thought it might be twins, and that I’d have to give up my dressing room or something equally horrendous, but nope, just the one in there!)

So! Needless to say, I have a lot to tell you all (Like a LOT-lot. Seriously, brace yourselves, folks…), and keeping this secret has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever done (Well, other than that time I got stuck inside a top in the ZARA changing room, and thought I was going to have to go out into the store with both arms pinned above my head, and my face covered in fabric. That was also pretty tough, really.), but for now I just wanted to let you all in on the “secret” and explain why I’ve been a bit MIA lately, both here and on Instagram, etc.

Now, here’s to the next 6 months!

Good things are going to happenCanvas: Photowall]

    OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING!!! Sorry for the all caps but seriously SO AWESOME! I’m so happy for you, a random internet stranger, that it might be borderline weird? But I had my own tiny miracle two months ago and this has been and will be the greatest adventure of my life. Also I have read your blog since before your wedding and so am emotionally invested (seriously, stopping with the weirdness now). So huuuuge congratiolations to you and Terry and your families and hoping for a relatively easy pregnancy (the nausea should stop soon now)!

    June 26, 2017
  • Congratulations! What wonderful news!

    June 26, 2017
  • Yay! Huge congratulations to you both. I literally smiled so hard throughout reading all of this post! Also, I’ve been there after multiple pregnancy losses so can fully appreciate the anxiety you may feel. Take it a day at a time and my favourite motto for pregnancy after loss is that you can be scared and brave at the same time. And I have twins so yeah, totally get that comment too πŸ˜‰ I look forward to your updates, (sipping ginger beer or nibbling on ginger nuts will help with the nausea) and thank you for sharing your beautiful news with us x

    Delighted for you both! I can really recommend gentle birthing (hypnobirthing) to help with anxiety through pregnancy and birth. I’m seriously the last person who would have bought into this kind of thing but I gave it and go and found it actually helped. If you want to give it a go I can share my MP3s with you via Dropbox. Best of luck with everything. ?

    Congratulations. I know it’s been rough dealing with the miscarriage and the ectopic pregnancy. This is awesome for you both. We had our baby boy last year in October. If you name him Oliver, you and I might be too alike for comfort. Haha. But if it’s a girl Oleander Grace was our choice and 10 out of 10 would recommend.

    (Just a note: I don’t actually care if it’s a boy and you name him Oliver:))

    So happy for you.

    Amber, I cannot begin to say how happy I am for you! I read all your previous posts on the topic (and just about everything you wrote for years in your blogs, obviously) and I was often wondering how you were feeling after all you’ve been through and hoping that you found a way to deal with it all. I am so happy you did!
    I laughed (hard) and cried (a bit) when I was reading the announcement, please never stop (over)sharing the way you always do – I just love your style (both in dressing up and in writing).
    I wish you all the best and I am really looking forward to read EVERYTHING you might want to share!

  • Aaah Amber, congratulations!! I’m so happy for you, especially after everything you’ve been through recently! Though I’ve never been pregnant, for the nausea I can recommend peppermint tea if you like it? I’ve got a massive phobia of feeling and being sick so I’ve tried a billion things to keep it at bay and peppermint tea is one of the only things that helps usually.

    Oh, Amber! I really am so delighted for you and Terry! It feels a bit weird saying this from across the internet – I appreciate I am a total stranger, and it’s more than a little weird to be so happy about the news, but I’ve been a long time fan, and have read every word you wrote for the past 7 years. And after all that you went through over the past few months, I really just always hoped for the best for you, whatever that may have meant for you and your family. Knowing that you’ve worked through your challenges and have come out stronger the other side is such a powerful lesson for other people to learn.

    Wishing you and your family all the best in the coming months πŸ™‚

    Nothing helped my morning sickness except trying to sleep past when it was worst. But it did completely disappear halfway through the 2nd trimester.

    I have health anxiety and I drove my doctors crazy but I made it through with my little bug perfectly fine. He’s now the healthiest 11 year old boy I’ve ever met.

    I am so happy for you and Terry, after all the pain and loss, that you have such wonderful news. Becoming a mom might even help with some of your health anxiety. I was nauseous through all four of my pregnancies. Nothing really helped. My daughter just had a baby and she was also nauseous. I just read however, that adrenal support would have fixed it. It might be something to check with your doctor. I’m also very happy for your parents.

Re- morning sickness, when I had my pregnancies, over 50 years ago, my doctor’s advice was to eat 2 plain digestive biscuits before getting out of bed in the morning! It worked for me!!

  • I’m so behind on my blog reading, I open up Feedly and see this wonderful news! Oh Amber I am so happy for you and Terry! You two have been through so much, I feel as though I know you though we’re on different continents. I wish you much health, happiness, and strength through this and look forward to seeing glimpses of your life here on the blog. Much love to you my friend!

    June 26, 2017
  • Congratulations! I’m so happy for you. I found out I was pregnant around the time you were writing about your experience of an ectopic pregnancy. I probably shouldn’t have read it all, but I did (with a fair bit of crying).

    I wish you all the best for your pregnancy and I will try to find time to follow your blog still – I look forward to seeing your maternity style, but I’m due in 5 weeks so will be quite busy after that, or so I’ve been led to believe…

    Heartfelt congratulations to both of you! I was so happy to read this! I have been praying for it to work out for you, as random and awkward this might sound coming from a complete stranger. Very much looking forward to hearing all, and yes, I mean ALL about it. I enjoy reading whatever you write about. I’m a mum to a 9-month-old girl and I can’t wait to relive some of my experiences through yours. All the very best, health and happiness! And Granny Smith apples worked with my nausea in case you fancy a very sour try.

Well done for shedding light on important issues in a delicate and relatable way. So glad you both have some wonderful news after a difficult year! Congratulations again! xx

  • Omgosh, yay!!! I was really hoping you would get pregnant since you were trying! I’ve decided to be childless, one of the many reasons being that I just cannot do hospitals/doctors, so I totally relate with you on the health anxiety thing. And hooray for you being brave! yes, brave! You guys are going to be the best parents πŸ˜€

    Hello Amber,
    This is the first time I write to you, although I read your blog for quite some time (years?!) now. I follow your adventures in Portugal where the sun shines all the time, but where the wind blows high so I can relate well with all your wind problems! My heart was broken with you previous news and all the health scares you had and now I am really happy for you.
    I want to congratulate you for this amazing news and I think you are right: great things are going to happen. I will be here wishing you all the best!

    OMG! BIGGEST CONGRATS!!!! I must say I have never been so pleased about the pregnancy of someone I don’t know in real life πŸ™‚ But I am so very happy for you.
    I had four miscarriages before the eventual healthy birth of my babe (now aged 12!!) and honestly, I know how hard a pregnancy is after all the dramas you have been through. But it’s worth every minute of the trauma. I had a great life before my son, but he made everything else better too. Stay well πŸ™‚
