So the next 6 months went by pretty uneventful – I found someone to kindly run my place in the GNR given that was due to take place on the 20th Sept – my due date was the 18th!! And St. John retuned to work full time.
We mainly took it turns having scans - making sure what was in me was growing and what was in St. John wasn’t! - He started with scans and bloods, taken every 3 months after being put into remission. I had a scan at 20 weeks – we decided not to find out the sex of the baby – and another scan later on into my pregnancy as my bump was too little. All was looking good – the cancer was still at bay and my bump, although little, was healthy – even if I didn’t feel it!. In the August we returned to Ambleside and had a lovely few days there.
Over all it was a stark contrast from the previous year (although nearly as many hospital visits) thankfully not a stressful (well nearly). St. John had however took an adverse reaction to hospitals – and was often sick on entering one (the smell), so whilst he attended some appointments with me – it wasn’t all – plus he was unsure if he would be able to be at the birth – I got this – I knew where he was coming from – but most people couldn’t believe he might not be there – I had my sister as back up and he would decide as and when!
The 18th Sept came …and went….
