So my mom keeps on bugging me about when my appt is (it's tomorrow afternoon!). I've known about this baby for almost a month now, but couldn't get in to see the doc between work and when she's in her office. My mom is driving me nuts because she thinks that the doctor's pee test will be more accurate than the one that I took at home! It's so silly because that would mean that two tests were wrong, and sore boobs, tiredness, and no period two months now is just me lol! I don't get her? Even though I've NEVER been late unless I'm pregnant, and the HPT were right with my other three kids, it's like she just can't believe it until the doc confirms it?! I know it's silly, I just had to vent! Anyone else have family members/friends/or even DH's like this??

Sort of! My mom and DH are holding out for the ultrasound on Monday. I think because I have had a loss before they are scared to get excited. But, you have to remember that it is your body and you know what you are feeling. They are not reminded everytime they smell something, take off their bra, etc.
I am still pretty early (5w3d) and don't have many symptoms so I do sometimes forget I am pregnant! I keep waiting to feel "more" pregnant every day but all I have so far (from 11 DPO on) are slightly sore boobs, fatigue (seems to have gotten better the last couple days), feeling ever so slightly nauseous and a heightened sense of smell. As of today I have a killer craving for Mexican food - does that count?
I was going to hold out for a doctor's visit and ultrasound before telling our parents but my first appointment is not until May 19 (I will be 8w) and who knows when I will get an ultrasound. I was debating paying for a private scan ($50) before telling our parents on Mother's day weekend but it will be so early in the pregnancy (just over 6 weeks) and I think it might scare me more than do good to have an ultrasound that early. We don't plan to tell anyone else until 12 weeks, only our parents. But yeah, some days it doesn't feel real and I keep checking if my boobs are still sore!
I'm feeling pretty sick - so yes, it feels real! I've also been to the doctor and had an u/s, hcg levels tested, so there's no messing that up. We haven't told anybody yet except my dh's parents and my sister know. I think we're going to tell my family on Mother's Day?
not really. But it does feel more real at and after my appt yesterday. Sorry she doesnt seem to trust you or your HPTs/symptoms. KUP about your appt.

I guess it doesn't feel real for me either yet. LOL I have some pregnancy symptoms but I guess until you hear that heart beat or see that U/S it's hard to believe you have a little life growing inside of you. I can't wait to "feel" pregnant.
Yes, still unreal over here-- feeling pretty good, just some fatigue once in a while, which had originally been my first clue.
DH was all, "Um, why don't you check again?"
I tried explaining to him that the test I bought was 99%+ accurate, especially since I waited soooooo long to test... ran a second one this morning. Positive again.
But DH is pretty unhappy, which is putting a damper on stuff.
hahaha, Well I took about 25 tests ( mostly IC's and $store tests, plus 3 FRER's). I am miserably nauseated all the time, so it should totally feel real now. I still forget sometimes though.
