Yesterday I was 18 weeks! Unfortunately I didn’t have time to write as I wasn’t home all day so that’s why only today the update!! This week has been a stressful one. After major delays with the train (and no decent toilet on board…Help!) Wednesday I slipped on the train station and fell hard on my back. I was completely in tears and immediately thought the worst. So once home my love and I went to the hospital to have a check up. Fortunately our little creature was doing his gymnastics as always and was even sucking his thumb…so sweet!
Best part of this week: Seeing our little boy and his heart beat after the stressful moment of falling!
