On 21 February, 3 years ago, we discovered we were having baby #2. It was my birthday and I had a bad dizzy spell after getting out of bed to go to the bathroom. Low iron levels, again, I thought. Fantastic. What a way to spend my birthday … waiting in the doctor’s surgery and having blood tests. I had done a pregnancy test the day before, just hoping, but it had come back negative. When we got in to see the doctor, she asked if there was any chance I was pregnant – and sent me off to the toilets with a little cup. She did another pregnancy test and it came back with a very clear positive. My best birthday present ever!

To all the mums who are trying for a bub, wishing you all the best. x

  • What a fabulous birthday present to get!


  • Aw what a great present :)


  • Such a cute story. So happy for you!


  • When I read about the severe dizziness without looking at the title I suspected low blood pressure or that you had you head a bit too far forward before you tried to stand up as I have a similar problem when I get out of a mini-bus. I am tall and have to “duck my head” so that I don’t hit it in the doorway.
    I am glad you received good news


  • This is such a great site, MoMs is so helpful. I’ve just read a story about a mum who has had 10 rounds of unsuccessful IVF and gas just been told to try donor eggs. And here you are with your happy ending telling other mums to never give up hope. Good for you!


  • Thank you for sharing this. Very interesting reading!


  • What a great birthday present!


  • Oh wow! I want a present like that too…lol
