Don't want to do a test :(

I'm so mixed up and don't have anyone to talk to. I feel so sad. sad

My period is definately a week overdue, possibly 3 or more as I can't remember exactly when the last one was. They've become a bit less reliable than they used to be and are so light they barely register anymore. Hormone changes due to my age I think (I'm 40 now).

My husband and I started trying to conceive several years ago but sadly nothing happened. Then as hormones started to change nature became cruel and PMT symtoms became more and more like being pregnant. I spent a small fortune on pregnancy tests each month only for period to start straight after testing. The emotional rollcoaster was killing me, so I got off it and resigned myself to not getting pregnant and to be honest, once I passed 40 I thought the ship had sailed.

Now I feel terrible, can't sleep, get up several times in the night to pee, my breasts are so sore on the outside and achey on the inside. I know I need to do a test but I can't bring myself to do it. I feel like I'm kidding myself and I can't cope with the hurt of being back on the rollercoaster. But I want to know. But when it says negative I'll feel like such a fool. Again. sad

It's probably all stress related anyway. sad

She's put due date down provisionally as 30th April but it will be confirmed at the 18 week scan. They don't do the dating scan here.

Fantastic news!

shock
WOW!!
Any longer & we would've seen you pop up on 'I didn't know I was pregnant'!!
What's your due date?

ps. Terrier driven sled sounds awesome, for a pregnant lady, would be a great way to rock up to hospital in labour!

FlaminNoraImPregnantPanda Mon 15-Oct-12 14:11:00

I just got back from the midwife. She calculates that I'm 11 or 12 weeks gone. YIKES! shock

Congratulations!! I read the thread a few days ago and am so happy to find it again and see your happy happy news!!

FlaminNoraImPregnantPanda Wed 10-Oct-12 18:12:25

I think he has the first in mind, will no doubt end up with the second, and if he sees the third it's game over for any pram I may want. grin

TakingTheStairs Wed 10-Oct-12 15:12:55

Panda your DH's line of thinking is hilarious!

Does he have this in mind ?It's more likely to be this!!
Tell him that this would be more realistic for a couple of years grin

This thread is making me cry. You must be so happy.

Bearface Wed 10-Oct-12 14:42:41

Great new name!

FlaminNoraImPregnantPanda Wed 10-Oct-12 13:59:47

I dread to think what he'll come home with. He was talking about getting another terrier this morning, claiming the existing one will be sad and lonely when the baby comes. Further suspicious prying revealed his true reasoning ... one terrier wouldn't be enough to pull a sledge with a child on it, but 2 might do it. hmm

We live in a part of the world where there is several feet of snow from November through until March. I'm thinking 'nice pram to transport the baby'. He's thinking 'terrier driven dog sled to transport the baby'. But at least he's excited and planning ahead in his own slightly alarming way.

Oooh love the latest name change even more! grin

Plain biscuits & ginger (or even ginger biscuits) helped me when I was feeling nauseous (I didn't ever have morning sickness, just sea sick feeling).
Do you think DH will come with the sledge tonight!?

Awww congrats again pregnantpanda!! thanks

FlaminNoraImPregnantPanda Wed 10-Oct-12 13:37:00

So I have an appointment with the midwife on Monday and I spent early this morning familiarising myself with the bottom of the toilet bowl. Now I believe it.
