My boobs have been really sore for about a week, so bad I've bought a three pack of those ugly bras, I've always had tenderness before a period, but only for a day or so, I've also noticed a strange taste in my mouth, not enough to think much about it, until now, I've just read an early sign is a metallic taste, and that's the taste, couldn't put my finger on it before.

Slight twinges like mild period pains and wind.

I still don't want to believe it, I'm 39, this will be my first if I really am, but reading that about the metallic taste kinda made a light come on.

Early pregnancy symptoms REALLY feel like a period coming.....That's rather confusing.

I don't have anyone to tell, my husband is sleeping.

Blimey!!!

Peeing into a pot and dipping the test stick into it is so much easier than trying to pee on the stick itself. I ended up getting urine on the control window and wasting an expensive test by trying to aim on the stick.

I can't be the only person who keeps a small pot that is used for only this purpose?

Is he awake yet?

You'd better run Pondlily wink

Yeah it was still in too, hadn't even fallen out grin

pragmatic my pot I used for my tests was the very same one I use/used for my antenatal app wees, apparently my mw tells everyone about one of her ladies and her pot (ie me) I can't pee in those little stupid tubes they give you at the docs and hosp I always miss them.

Can you not bribe dh some way or tell him he can go back to bed for as long as he wants after nipping to the shops?

Do you not have a little local shop in walking distance?

Or just get up and make as much noise as you possibly can until dh gets the message grin

Pickles77 Sat 17-Nov-12 07:52:21

Don't just buy one test wink

Agree with pickles get 10four grin

MustafaCake Sat 17-Nov-12 07:54:07

When I told DH I was pregnant he kissed me, said that's nice and went back to his DIY, men just aren't the same creatures. But yours DIFINATELY NEEDS TO GET HIS ARSE OUT OF BED!

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 08:09:00

HE'S HAVING HIS TEA AND TOAST grin hmm

iloveholidays Sat 17-Nov-12 08:10:02

Well at least he's up!!! How's he being?

Is the shop far away?

emeraldgirl1 Sat 17-Nov-12 08:11:38

God you are more zen than I am. I would be throwing a major tantrum at DH right now!!

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 08:12:43

He's fine iloveholidays when he came into the kitchen I apologised for being so emotional, want to start today well, so swallowed it down.

iloveholidays Sat 17-Nov-12 08:15:59

That's good, I bet he's just finding it hard to believe and he maybe not wanting to come across excited so not to build your hopes up. My DP would do that, always shrugged me off until he saw a positive test as he said if he showed any excitement it would make me more excited and he was right.

Best of luck... I've got everything crossed for you.

Come on mr p. too exciting!!

phantomhairpuller Sat 17-Nov-12 08:19:12

Good luck OP, marking place to check back later! Hope you get the result you're looking for grin

OrangeLily Sat 17-Nov-12 08:20:51

Tea and toast?? hmm

At least if you are pregnant he's going to have to be super nice to you for the next 9 months

Mama1980 Sat 17-Nov-12 08:21:13

Good luck just marking my place to check back later

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 08:23:24

This is some pressure to perform grin

JaquelineHyde Sat 17-Nov-12 08:24:34

Tick tock tick tock...he must have finished by now, kick him out of the door.

On a more pratical note like a few others have said make sure he gets a few tests and make sure he buys something like chocolate or whatever you like so that if for some reason you don't get the result you want at least you have some form of comfort near by.
