I was shocked. I was so shocked. We only had tried that month, and I was 1 day late so I tested. 3 days before was negative. Then I got a positive and I kept on saying holy shit, over and over and over again. OH didn't say much of anything I think because he was in shock and expected it to take alot longer than it did.
Well, me and OH started TTC after our first year anniversary. I was a bit reserved about having children but since OH has wanted kids for so many years and id had my broody spells with his nieces and nephew i thought, yeah, why not!
My first pregnancy turned out to be a chemical, and the second one too which was extremely upsetting for the both of us. After that i went into an adamant im not reproducing phase so we gave up TTC and i decided to go back to college as i wanted my diploma in Beauty therapy and it'd take my mind off everything that had happened to me
A month or so before i was due to go back to college, I was a week late for my period but thought nothing of it as id been late before but continued to get BFN's until i got AF, so i tried to carry on as normal!. Eventually I told OH i was late and he only pestered me to test!, I had no other symptoms that I was pregnant!..Just cramping that felt like AF was gonna' land on me at any time!
We brought 2 FRER's & 2 Clearblue digis!, the next day a week and one day late for my period I took my FRER and got a really bright line!..At the time i thought the test was broken as the test line came up before the control line, so i went to grab the other test!..Got the same thing again!
I was on my own in the house at the time I couldn't tell anyone, they say your whole life flashes before your eyes when you have a fright or something and mine was certainly doing that!, i was absolutely terrified..But the pessimist in me thought it'd be another chemical so i refused to get excited!..I got a 3+ on the both digis the next day!
OH was over the moon when i showed him the tests!, as i text him and he thought i was messing with him or trying to wind him up..Men eh?..But when he saw i wasn't messing it was amazing, we just held each other in the doorway!
I found out i was pregnant on 27th September 2011! . Ive had 3 scans and baby seems perfect and we're on team blue!..We're deciding to name him Sebastian!
Thanks for reading my story and sorry it turned out to be such an essay
OH and I were 'trying' (not too hard) to conceive for less than a month. We werent too serious about it at the time. I was only two days late for my period and my OH said we needed to get a test. I told him he was being ridiculous, as my period isnt always on the same schedule. But he convinced me to go get one anyway. So we got a cheap one from the nearby gas station. I took the test and we both walked away (he was watching me pee though to make sure I wouldnt peek at the test =P). We then went out and smoked a cigarette (I know terrible!) and discussed if it was positive. I was sure that it would be negative, as it just seemed to perfect. We both walked back into the bathroom flipped the test and there was the faintest of pink lines. We then ran to the store and bought two more expensive tests to make sure. Sure enough 6 tests later we were convinced! We were both scared, no tears, just scared and excited!
well, i found out day before my 28 birthday.. just felt bit different, was hungry most of times [at first thought it could be different food- i was in France that time and French ppl tend to eat smaller portions].. but when my hunger really kept forcing me to eat, i just thought it could be IT.. I had a pregnancy tests with me so i popped to the bathroom and did the test.. i remember window was open and two massive bumblebees flu inside so i panicked even more, lie down on the floor with the test in my hand.. cat, which was all the time in the bathroom was looking at me very weirdly..haha.. anyway, being on that floor, i saw the result that yep, im pregnant...
I felt angelic, to be honest.. i knew i wanted to have baby..
OH got stressed at first and didnt talk much.. he found out while trying to catch those bumblebees, god knows what he was thinking that time.. and.. at that moment i was sure i will be single mother, cause i knew my partner only little more than a month..:O so i was sure i shall not think about perfect family story in my case.. For me this child was a chance to change my perspective on life.. for him, i guess, it was considered as a fatal mistake.. i was going through that in the past, 5 years ago.. when my ex asked me to do abortion and i did that.. this was, and still is, biggest mistake of my life.. so this time i knew i will never ever listen to anyone- this is my baby, and i will be single mother without any expectations from anybody..
for next 3 days we kept talkin and he decided to stay and try..since that day, me and oh we got closer and closer.. we both cant wait to see our boy,.. and though i know I dont really have much in common with my partner, this child connects us very strongly.. and makes our life super meaningful because your life is not about you any more....
We knew we wanted children, so I went off the pill thinking it would take some time to concieve. after two months of nothing I decided to look at a calendar and see when ovulation would be and for the upcoming three months it was right in the middle of my husbands business trips. I resigned myself to not getting pregnant for the next three months. Low and behold I must have ovulated early that month! When I was one day late i decided to do a cheap internet test - it was positive! so I did two more. My husband and I had a curling game that night and i leaned over and told him that I had taken a test and it was positive. He didnt trust the internet cheapies so I picked up a digi on the way home and sure enough "Pregnant 1-2" pops up right away. Then we have the full range of emotions from elated to 'what did we just do'. Now it feels like this baby cant come fast enough.
Love this thread! With my preggo brain I'm trying to clean up the cobwebs to remember how it all went!
Well, we had been trying for 15 months, and I had been to the OB/GYN and gotten the all-clear that I was able to conceive. Hubby had just scheduled his test at the clinic to check his sperm counts and all that. It was August and our anniversary was 8/23. We didn't have sex on our anniversary because we ended up being out late and exhausted but the night before we had amazing sex which was great because we had started to be in a boring rut. And I remember while we were doing it that he kept bumping my cervix and we both commented on it (cervix was super low). After we DTD we laid in bed and talked for a good half hour or so which we also didn't do very often. The next week we went to a rock concert and fought the whole time and I was so emotional and it was weird. A couple days after that I took a test at 10DPO (was always taking them at 9DPO every month) and had the faintest faintest line on a FRER. I woke hubby up and he swore he saw it too. I took a digi later that day and got not pregnant. So the next day I took another digi in the morning and it said pregnant. I left it next to hubby's smokes so he would see it first thing in the morning, and we told our families that week. I was 3 weeks 3 days when I found out!
When we told OH's mom that she was gonna be a grandma she asked which of the cats was pregnant LOL
Shocked, but happy. We had actually decided the day before to start trying, so the timing was pretty uncanny.
scared or excited?
Both. I called my mom right away because my husband was at work and I had to freak out to someone.
did you cry?
Yes, because we had gone to the Dominican Republic about 2 weeks before and I had some drinks because I obviously didn't know at the time so I was panicking. My mom helped me feel better though.
how did you break the news to DH/OH/FOB?
Once we got home after I picked him up from work, I told him "looks like it's a good thing we decided to start trying because it's happening anyway" and I showed him the two tests I took.
how did he react?
He said nothing for about 30 seconds and then broke into a huge smile. He was also shocked and it took a bit longer for it to sink in, but he was very happy.
