Hi and welcome to the 2nd week of my guest series – When I found out I was pregnant. This week I’m joined by the lovely Bridget from Mummy Bee who discusses how surprised she was to find out that she was pregnant. She has also shared a scan picture and a photo of herself – she looked so stylish and glowing while pregnant! I hope you enjoy reading her story as much as I did!1. When did you find out you were pregnant?
I found out I was pregnant in 2015 after coming home from our holiday in Barcelona.
2. Where were you when you found out you were pregnant?
I was on the toilet seat with the pregnancy test on the floor. I remember just sitting there staring at it in total disbelief.
3. Were you surprised?
Yes, I was very surprised because I was not expecting it at all.
4. Before you took a pregnancy test, did you have any signs that you may be pregnant?
No, I had no idea at all. I remember I was feeling really weird and not myself on holiday and didn’t think too much of it. When we came back from our holiday I still wasn’t feeling too good and my boyfriend just suggested that I take a test as he was convinced that I was pregnant.
5. What were the first thoughts that went through your mind when you found out you were pregnant?
I thought that maybe there was something wrong with the test, I just could not believe it so I did two more tests and they all came out positive and I just felt so guilty and worried for the baby because I had drunk quite a lot of sangria on my holiday the previous week. But I knew I shouldn’t feel guilty because I didn’t know that I was pregnant.
6. How did you tell your partner you were pregnant?
I didn’t need to tell him it was his idea for me to take the test and I think my face said it all when I opened the bathroom door shaking and I just showed him the pregnancy tests and he was so happy.
7. What was your partner’s reaction?
He was so very happy and excited where as I was more scared and anxious. I think it took me a whole week to believe and accept that I was pregnant I kept thinking that it was not real.

I really enjoyed reading Bridget’s story, it is completely different to Claire’s story last week and shows us how everyone’s experiences of getting a positive pregnancy test result is different. I can really relate to Bridget’s story, as I also took three pregnancy tests and had concerns about alcohol consumption when I didn’t know I was pregnant (although my midwife did reassure me that at such an early stage of pregnancy it was absolutely nothing to worry about).
Thank you for taking part, Bridget! x
