It’s been quite some time since my last post… about a year, I think. Just enough time for life to change completely.
A month after the last post, we found out I was pregnant! We were surprised, but so happy! Rob figured it out before I did, my clever man. He pieced my complaints together and I agreed to take a test when my always irregular period was considered 2 weeks late by my period tracking app. I figured I was only really a few days late.
I took the test and climbed back into bed with Rob to watch a movie. It was a Saturday or Sunday morning and Maggie was at her dad’s, so we got to sleep in. After the movie, Rob tried to sneak to the bathroom to check the test which I’d forgotten was on the bedside table. I took a peek, saw one pink line and rolled over to curl up in my warm nest of blankets… and realized there were two lines. I shouted for Rob, who came running, and showed him in case I was wrong. I completely forget what he said, but he was overjoyed. We definitely both cried.
On 17 November, I was induced (gestational diabetes posed a risk for both Baby and I), and on 18 November at 12:55pm, Gemma Caitriona Clark came flying into the world!
If having a baby weren’t enough, we also got married on 4 June! I was 15 weeks pregnant (it felt like 25) and loved that I had all 3 of my loves on my wedding day. To say 2017 was eventful would be a major understatement.
