We’ve been to the doctors. A late night call to the out of hours surgery has led to us being called in. A mixture of abdominal cramp, shoulder pain and too much scary googling are all enough to make the car journey one of the worst of my life.
It’s hard not to overthink these things and I’m struggling. The drive to the doctors feels never ending and my head is buzzing with questions, fears and worst-case scenarios.
As it turns out, we have nothing to fear.
The doctor is kind and advises us to enjoy our pregnancy, he also tells us that my wife has the heart rate of an athlete…this part of the story will be retold often.
