An Altrui couple talk about their feelings on diary day six of their two week wait. Today: second-guessing.


Lie-in completed, I rolled out of bed into the shower and pulled on a pair of loosely fitting clean pyjamas. No more of this tight trouser malarkey. Today was going to be a day of comfort and, you’ve guessed it – more Disney. Being off work again opened up the door to evaluating every little twinge, bloat and nauseating smell.

Thankfully my husband was off work today too and was able to balance out my craziness. Although he too was jumping on and off the pregnancy-guessing band wagon now. Every last thought was spent on pregnancy. And rightly so. This is the most important thing we have ever done. We had to make sure it went to plan by keeping our eye on the prize.
