Ben and Eliza Curby found out they were going to have a baby around three months into their dating, of course, they were in a panic but equally excited too! They always wanted to start a family and this great news meant it was all coming to fruition!
Their adorable little girl was born, Charlie, as healthy as a horse, but as the weeks passed by, Eliza couldn’t stop feeling that something wasn’t quite right.
Eliza shared her lovely love story, she said:
“We fell pregnant with our first, Charlie, three months after we started dating!”
“Ben had always been super keen to become a father so we were over the moon at the thought of creating our own little family.”
“Needless to say the decision was taken out of his hands – I win!”
She really enjoyed being a mother, it was her dream come true, Ben too was so happy about their lovely daughter. However, despite their happiness, Eliza still sensed something a little off.
The girl and young mother thought that she may be pregnant again, she was tired all the time! But only six weeks after the birth of her last child she just thought that her tiredness was due to her crazy busy year. Starting a new relationship, having a baby, it all took its toll!
“I was exhausted trying to figure out the ins and outs of being a mum, but about a month after having Charlie though I felt really, super exhausted…Everyone told me it was sleep deprivation catching up with me but I was not convinced – I remember looking at Ben and saying, ‘I think I’m pregnant.’ “
Ben…. “He just laughed.”
They already had a super busy house with a newborn baby so another seemed just practically impossible!
