I am 38 and pregnant for the first time. We're moving out of state soon and we were going to wait on trying to get pregnant for another 6 months. But when I went to my annual exam, I got a whopper of a lecture from my doctor about how I needed to start right away. She got me all scared that I was going to have trouble getting pregnant, so that night my husband and I decided to stop using birth control. Two weeks later I started having symptoms. Nausea, headaches, all kinds of things. It was obviously pregnancy but how could it possibly happen so soon? The timing doesn't seem right. Do I ovulate really early in my cycle? I'm taking a pregnancy test this weekend but I might have to wait one more week to get a positive. I'm 100% sure I'm pregnant and am just worried I might be more than one month pregnant. I looked online and found a few instances where people had symptoms as early as I did, but I'm still nervous. Were we pregnant before we even started trying?
I'm trying to keep this whole thing secret until after we see a doctor and maybe until after some tests but I'm a blogger by heart and it's so hard to keep quiet. So I'm hoping this semi secret blog will help get through the next few weeks. I'm so excited!
