Picture a long stretch of road from a tube station to my parents’ house – around a 15 minute walk and then wanting to urinate on the way! If I could hold my vagina securely in public whilst walking and not leaking through my garments I would be ecstatic. Although, it was the peak busy time – everyone heading home after work, so there was too much people to have my hands over my vagina! Not that it would help reduce the tension. There were no buses that I could easily hop on to and speed the journey either. The release was so relieving once I headed to the 2nd toilet in my parents room which involved 2 flights of stairs.
For me, I thought I just wanted to pee. As a few days past, the need to have the toilet as my best friend increased dramatically. Only at this point do I realise something is wrong and after a bit of googling, I tried to diagnose my symptoms. Diabetes, infection or pregnant – mmmmm which one could it be? It actually could be any of them as diabetes is prone to oriental/Asian persons which I have only recently find out a glucose test is required. An infection – well any female can get a infection. There are more and more commercials on TV about Thrush! Pregnant – of course as we are trying to have a family, so I opt for this as to why I am urinating like a water fountain.
On the 22nd August 2015, I advise Martin that I would take the pregnancy test! Did you know there is so many options and at extortionate prices! We planned to eat a juicy medium rare steak before I take the test, as I know it is advisable not to eat uncooked foods. (Not forgetting the sushi at Nobu Restaurant during the week with the ladies – freaking delicious and mouth-watering! Picture below). I am elated that we did this. My anxieties are at a high, with shivers. If I am pregnant, that was a Barry Allen –Flash – too fast! We were thinking it would take months or years due to our friends and family experiences. I am awaiting the results – then a positive pregnancy test confirmed. The line in the window on the stick appears as a double line! Oh my God!!!! In disbelief and shock I tell Martin. His response to this news was to double check the box to see I did it correctly! Can you believe that? There is only one way to let your pee gush over a stick! Hahahaha! He reads the box instructions and correlates it against the cleaned stick and then kisses me, accompanied with the tightest hugs. As Martin likes to say, he has strong sperm! I like to think I have the warming conditions in me to grow a baby. WOW! We are having a baby – we are going to be a family!!!
