8 October

October 8th was my Grandma’s birthday.

October 8th is my little brother’s birthday.

October 8th was the due date for my first baby.

When I saw the two pink lines I was so, so happy and excited, and when I worked out my dates I just thought, ‘of course we are due then’.

Unfortunately, I lost the baby at 12 weeks, during lockdown, so now that date will hold a very different meaning. It will still be a celebration of birthdays but I will always wonder what could have been.


This year: My husband and I are going to Cornwall for a few days and will explore the beautiful beaches.
