Hi everyone, I'm new here and want to introduce myself. My husband and I just found out we are pregnant It took a few months of trying, but we finally got a double line! It's strange how even though this was planned I'm still in a mild state of shock...has this happened to any of you??? We're really excited, but I also have some anxiety that I wasn't expecting to be there.
I know what you are feeling. My husband and I have been trying for approximately 9 months and as usual, my period was late again. It was not uncommon for me to be anywhere from 1 day to 8 days late, therefore, with only three days late, I wasn't thinking anything was going on. For some reason I decided to take a test before getting ready for work yesterday and what to you know....I got the plus sign. Two pregnancy tests later, another plus sign and then a double line, I went for a blood test today. I won't know the results of that until tomorrow morning, but the doctor says that's just routine. 3 home pregnancy tests testing positive is pretty certain for them.
So as you had mentioned, although we were trying, I did not even think the test would come out positive. Now that it has, I am super excited, but I think I am still waiting to hear the actual confirmation from the doctor.
Thanks for writing back, I just found out yesterday and slowly the news is sinking in, but I think it might take until my first doctors visit for it all to feel completely real. This is our first and we are feeling really fortunate b/c a lot of our family members have had difficulty getting preg. and have had to use fertility treatments. Based on your screen name it sounds like this is your first too, congrats!! And like you I used 3 home preg. tests just to make sure...the first two just weren't enough
I just found out monday. I was not as calm about it.. I am a science teacher and teach my students to restudy lab results if they are unsure of them. Well be being a science teacher I took one test got the plus sign.. my box had 2 so I took another one about 4 hours later, Again plus sign. Now I have bought the test about 3 months ago since we just started trying so I was thinking it could be out of date, it had been very very hot here the test could have been corupt. I then bought a totaly different test and took both in the box both with a plus sign. Well lastly I went and got another totaly different test. Since all 5 (3 different brands) were postive. I then called the doctor. I took a blood test. and yesterday my doctor called to tell me yes all my testing was right. I am PREGNANT.
I told my husband and we were both filled with joy and shock most of the women in my family have a tough time getting pregnant. We had only tried for one month.. Good luck to you... with great joy.
