I'm thinking I'm pregnant?! Going insane

Some one talk me down. I'm shaking. I can't stop crying.

We tried for years to have ds who's now nearly 6. Having been trying since to have a much wanted other. Had a few miscarriages early in so I really shouldn't be getting excited.

We were told by doctors we wouldn't have another.

One of my best friends died last week and in my grief fog I had sex with dh as I knew I was ovulating (after ten years of trying to conceive you're pretty damn sure when it's happening). I knew I'd get pregnant. I've never been so sure.

Look. This is a line right??

I can't breath. I feel like I can't move ever again.

I’m sorry but aren’t these ovulation tests? I though LH ones tested for the LH surge before ovulation

Before anyone says, I know they're ovulation tests. But I definitely ovulated 19th July so it must be the pregnancy hormone. This is how I found out with ds.

I can't get a pregnancy test until Monday!!!

Right, breathe. Deep, deep breaths, in through your nose, out through your mouth.

<gentle hug>

Hot, sweet tea if you can manage it. Even better if it’s de-caf grin

They look very positive to me flowers

I think I was following your other thread. I hope things with your neighbours are looking up and sending congratulations xxx

Please don't get too excited if they are just ovulation tests. It's quite common to have a surge of LH around the time your period is due as well as just varying amounts in your system all cycle. I really hope it's due to pregnancy but please check with an actual pregnancy test before getting too excited thanks

I dont know about ovulation kits, but can you get a pg test sooner?

Billballbaggins Thu 01-Aug-19 11:59:04

Well if they are ovulation tests (they look the same as cheapy pregnancy tests I have used in the past, never seen an ovulation one before!) then you’re definitely ovulating it would seem? I’m don’t think they test for the same hormone as a pregnancy test?

Billballbaggins Thu 01-Aug-19 12:00:15

Just to add I’ve never seen an ovulation stick because I’ve never used them personally, obviously I knew they exist

Celebelly Thu 01-Aug-19 12:02:41

LH tests do react to HCG but there is also quite often LH in your system at various points, plus it's quite common to get an LH rise before your period arrives due to the dip in progesterone. I always got a darker line on ovulation test just before my period arrived when TTC. They definitely aren't reliable as pregnancy tests.

Please don't get your hopes up until you've taken a pregnancy test, as I've heard you can get a LH surge before period. But I had a positive ov test the day before I finally got my BFP so I've got everything crossed for you!

catofdoom Thu 01-Aug-19 12:03:03

@Celebelly I'm trying! I can't get to a pregnancy test today I don't think. Will beg dh to take the day off and go to the mainland!

Just because you were ovulating when you had sex, doesn't mean you're pregnant confused

Billballbaggins Thu 01-Aug-19 12:04:50

Fingers crossed for you OP

catofdoom Thu 01-Aug-19 12:06:08

This is how we found out I was pregnant with ds as I peed on one by mistake.

I'd forgotten about the LG surge just before the period though. Fuck fuck fuck. We've been trying but not really thinking it would happen for the last 2 years.

I nearly passed out last night and threw up and was in bed by 8 though. I told dh then I was 100% sure I was pregnant.

Oh God, maybe I've talked myself in to having symptoms.

Why can't you get a test today?

catofdoom Thu 01-Aug-19 12:07:05

@WorraLiberty yes after many, many years of tests and fertility treatment I've kind of gathered that. hmm

Ah cross post. He needs to take the day off and get one. You can't wait until Monday!

WorraLiberty Thu 01-Aug-19 12:07:10

Oh ffs, it's one of those threads to keep everyone 'hanging' until you can get a pregnancy test in four days time?

Good luck OP but all the 'shaking and crying' and I knew I'd get pregnant. I've never been so sure.

That's far too premature and I think you probably know it.

If you had sex last week it would be incredibly early to be showing on a pregnancy test. You absolutely could be pregnant but (gently) you might not be either. Take some deep breaths and try remain calm until you can get hold of a proper (first response if you can) test.

catofdoom Thu 01-Aug-19 12:09:15

I swear I'm not at all this woo and airy fairyish usually. I'm generally a stone faced miserable cow. grin

DH was even giving me funny looks when I was banging on about how I'd have to cut down coffee.

And trust me, the hanging on to test is nothing I want to be doing.

I don't get it?

That's not even a positive ovulation test.

Am I missing something?
