What a special day.
It left me feeling a bit weird, as it had been a year exactly since our lives changed for ever. A year since I’d taken my positive pregnancy test.
The day was filled with happiness tinged with what if’s… Elfie has of course been the best thing that has ever happened to us but that one day changed the course of our lives more profoundly than anything else before or since. And we came so close to losing her, that particular what if doesn’t even bear thinking about.
It was a day of reflection and of giving thanks that our little girl is so happy and healthy. A day of thinking how lucky I am to have her. And a day of wondering what will come next.
A move back to London? Going back to work? Another baby? Who knows…
(PS: I actually celebrated my pregnancy test anniversary by stepping back into my old self for a while and drinking a bottle of champagne. Cheers Elfie!)
