Cautiously optomistic January 2019


I have a 2.5 year old dd who is extended breastfeeding. It took 10 months to get her and I've now taken 5 dip ic tests all with very obvious and clear but faint second lines. It's been 12 months ttc number 2 and I honestly didn't even suspect anything. I just wanted to get it out of my head that I could be pregnant but then I was. I've taken a digital that was negative but 4 of the positivery ic tests were taken after the digital was taken so I'm obviously pregnant. I just don't have a lot of obvious breast pain which I expected with a nursing toddler. Anybody else due in January with few symptoms??? Looking for some buddies to talk me down from my ledge. Ha ha

Hi! I'm also due in January, and I don't have very many symptoms either. Just sore bbs, hot flashes, plus I'm tired but not sleeping well at night.

I've tested with FRERs and digis, and all are positive. The lines on my FRERs are super dark.

We are still early, so I'm not too worried. No cramping or bleeding, so I'm (cautiously) optimistic. Congrats, and I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months.

Pregnancy is so different. With my first I had sympoms before I missed a period. This time around even though we were ttc the positive tests were a shock. Other than those tests, some increased potty breaks and being tired I would never have guessed especially since u just missed my period this weekend. I just started taking prenatals and scheduled my first ob appointment so the count down begins. Ha ha

My first two tests were super faint too. I did them the day after I missed AF and the 2 days after. Both really faint but undeniably there. I've seen to many negatives and know the difference. I took a FRER a few hours after my second faint internet cheapie and got a very clear second line. Then took a digital two days later and it came up positive.

I'm 6 weeks now (this was all done at 4 weeks) and my only symptoms are super sore boobs and a stretching feeling below my bellybutton.

It's so early to have symptoms. Most don't show up until after 6 weeks. And congrats! It took us 2 years to get here, so I totally understand your shock and amazement.

Hey ladies mind if I join in? I'm cautiously expecting number #2 and I'm also due in January. I'm about 4 weeks 3 days and never been so anxious. Been trying to take my mind of pregnancy as been worried over lack of symptoms etc which to be fair I didn't have with my ds. My lines are super dark now though and got a 2-3 week on cb digital which put me more at ease. Would be lovely to see how all you ladies are getting on throughout your pg journeys

Welcome ladies. All are welcome. I havent tried another digital yet but I have had like 6 positive IC tests and have missed my period. Starting last night, I got some nausea and dizziness and have had frequent urination and fatigue for a while too, but I am definitely noticing I feel a lot better this pregnancy than I did with my daughter... I know that can happen and its early days but man the waiting game/limbo is the worst. I have my first prenatal appointment on June 12 so only about 20 days to go... I can't wait. I hope you all are doing well and wish you all a healthy and happy 9 months. Who knows, maybe we will all fall in the small percentage of women who never get symptoms.... ha ha.

Me too!!
At my doctors appt I tested positive on May 18. I tested negative on a home test May 19, and had a faint line May 21. I'm only about 5 weeks, I'm now 8 days late for my menstrual. I'll be taking another test at my doc tomorrow; their tests are more accurate. But I'm pretty convinced at this point that my cycle isn't coming.

Will be 5 weeks tomorrow. Only symptoms are tender boobs with sensitive nipples, tiredness and hungry all the time. Feeling less anxious now but still looking forward to first appointment with MW just to get things confirmed etc... hope all you ladies are well.
