When I found out I was pregnant – Life as Mrs D

Sophie talks about her pregnancy story – how she waited for her husband to come home from a work trip to take the test and how she didn’t have time to savour the moment.


Hi and welcome to my guest series – When I found out I was pregnant. This week I’m excited to introduce Sophie from Life As Mrs D!


1.       When did you find out you were pregnant?

I found out I was pregnant on 28th August 2015 (to be precise!) First thing in the morning before we went to work….so probably somewhere around 7am!

2.       Where were you when you found out you were pregnant?

Haha, at home, sat on the loo upstairs.

3.       Were you surprised?

Not really, I had suspected for a few days, but hubby was away with work, so I didn’t want to take a test before he got home

4.       Before you took a pregnancy test, did you have any signs that you may be pregnant?

None that would be acceptable to put on a family blog!!

5.       What were the first thoughts that went through your mind when you found out you were pregnant?

It’s finally bl**dy happened! Quickly followed by S***, I’m going to be a mum!!!

6.       How did you tell your partner you were pregnant?

I went downstairs to where he was eating breakfast, said “how do you fancy being a Daddy?” and showed him the test!

7.       What was your partner’s reaction?

“Really!?! Wow!” He gave me a big hug, and then I told him that I had to get ready for work and went back upstairs! Talk about savouring the moment, eh!?

I loved reading Sophie’s story and the fact that she waited for her husband to come home from working away before she took her pregnancy test – I’m not sure I’d have been able to wait!

Thank you for taking part, Sophie! x

    1. I took mine on a work day, but thankfully I was working from home! I don’t know how I’d have functioned with the amount of nerves/excitement if I was in the office! Thank you for commenting 🙂


  1. Hi Laura and Sophie! What a sweet story, funny how you just know you’re pregnant sometimes right? That happened to me second time round, I was convinced waaaay before I missed a period! #MarvMondays
