Possibly Pregnant... Little Terrified...

Hi,
I'm 19 years old and an auntie to 6 gorgeous little girls and 2 handsome little chaps so it won't come as much of a surprise that I've been a little broody as of late..
Late September, me and my ex-fiancé broke up and I ended up running into the arms of an ex co-workers ex husband thanks to a nice bottle of single malt whiskey and 3 years of crushing hard on this guy (he used to DJ at the place me and the ex played pool)...
Anyway, AF is currently two weeks late and I've drank enough strawberry milkshake to sink a ship.
In the past couple of weeks, I've taken a couple of tests but all have some back negative (well, a couple had a strong pink line but faint white line next to it) so I went for a blood test this morning in hopes of getting myself an answer...
Safe to say, I'm impatient waiting for the results and scared isn't even the word...
I'm scared of how our relationship would take a new baby (despite the fact we both want them) but also kinda scared if it comes back negative, especially as I now have my heart set on a gorgeous little girl with blue eyes to call my very own...
Just wondered if anyone has had a few negatives then got a positive or if it's possible to still be pregnant, even if my blood test comes back negative?
Thanks in advance...

Strawberry milkshake? I don't get that reference.

I had negative tests followed by a positive. Test first thing in the morning for greater accuracy. Sometimes the hormones aren't strong enough in the very beginning.

Hi OP - so is the potential father of your baby the ex-coworker's ex-husband? Are you and he a couple now?

How old is he and does he know you may be pregnant?

Let us know when you hear back on. Loos tests. By two weeks late you should be getting quite strong BFPs on a home test (if you are pregnant).

I've been craving strawberry milkshake for the past week or so... Gone through like 5 litres of the stuff...
Yeah, we're together... Turns out we both sorta felt the same when we first met so it's been a really easy relationship so far.
He's close to 31 and is completely fine with the idea we may be expecting so everything is good on that front...
May take a HPT tomorrow, just to see if double lines shows but my family has a history of low hormone levels... My nan didn't know she was pregnant with my mum until she was 7 months gone and had periods all the way through so I'm a little nervous cause of that too.

You adapt. It's a lot to get used to, but it enhances your life in so many ways.

Well very good luck to you. I hadn't been with my partner long when I got pregnant with our son (although I was double your age!! God I feel old). It was the making a fantastic family, our son is now 2.5 and I am 9 weeks pregnant with our second.

I wish you all the best!

You know you might not have a little girl, right?

reallyanotherone Mon 24-Oct-16 16:31:35

What if you have a son? Or a girl with brown eyes?

Set your heart on whatever you like but you don't sound ready for a baby.

Eeek so you're trying for a baby but you've only just started going out? Please, please, please get to know him really well before giving your lovely baby a potentially rubbish dad for the rest of its life. The fact that he's 31 and happily snagging a very drunk 19 yr old with no thought to contraception doesn't exactly scream responsible parent material! Good luck to you and I hope everything turns out fine one way or another but please rely a bit more on judgment and less on luck in future if you can.

Not snagging, shagging! Bloody autocorrect.

Reallyanotherone- I'm glad someone else said what I was thinking. Your OP makes it sound a little like you want a cute doll "of your own". I hope it all works out but I would say don't rush into this!

babyand Mon 24-Oct-16 16:51:52

Guys I don't think she asked for judgment just advice?! Op I hope you get the result you want! Iv had negative tests right up to day after af due but never later than that

BethanyLou97 Mon 24-Oct-16 16:54:49

I understand it makes me sound like a kid wanting a new baby doll but I can assure you, I didn't mean it to sound like it...
We both held off on sleeping together until a week after... This wasn't planned in anyway shape or form but the condom split on us...
Always been told, old enough to open my legs then old enough to take care of the results so I have no issues about being pregnant and understand that once that child is born, I'm not longer living for myself but for them as well...
That's part of the reason I want to know, so I can start taking the recommended vitamins and pack in drinking (Not a drop in 2 weeks since missing AF)..
Thanks Babyand smile

OP take folic acid just in case. It's recommended even when just ttc so will do no harm if it's bfn

Start taking the folic acid straight away, even if you're not pregnant it's worth taking it if you're ttc
