At the age of 11 I was informed by my doctor that I could not have children due to being diagnosed with Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I grew up convinced I would never have children and learnt to deal with it, you know, the doctor told me so, so it must be true.
In August 2015 I met my other half, I was 24 and it was never anything too serious. In April I started to feel a bit off and thought “hmm get a pregnancy test just because why not rule that out first” it was a Monday afternoon when I did the test and I was terrified to look at the stick. Sure enough it read positive! Dumbfounded was the initial reaction followed by a “it can not be true!” The OH came over and I broke the news to him expecting him to run for the hills, we weren’t “official” (and we had both come out of long term relationships and we were having a ball living the “party” scene)
