Pregnancy Journey

“I’m having a baby!”

It was month 5 of our TTC journey when me and Mr Mitchell decided to go away for valentines day. It was a good opportunity to talk through our plans. Originally we had decided we would have a month off over March. Neither of us thought a December baby would be practical and to be honest, I think we both needed a break from the disappointment.

While we were away, we decided we would continue trying. Both of us wanted a baby more than we didn’t want our Christmas plans being disturbed or the babies birthday to be close to Christmas. Sometimes I think and plan too much. It felt silly to miss out on a month trying, when this could be the month.  Mr Mitchell told me, “if it happens, it happens and it was meant to be”. So we left it like that.

Our Journey

Pregnancy Journey

Just a girl who decided to go for it.  

Deciding to try for a baby is one of the most exciting yet daunting experiences you will ever go through. Are you ever truly ready? Probably not. Myself and Mr Mitchell decided to start trying for our first baby in September 2017, after I had surgery to remove my endometriosis. We were told that if we wanted a family it may not be as easy as we would like it to be, and that the greatest chance of conception was now. Post-surgery and young. Since meeting we both shared the same dream, that our future would involve a family. Mr Mitchell was especially keen to have a baby. In fact, he was ready before I was to start this journey.  So, we decided to go for it.
