I have been ttc for the last 9 months and have been very dissapointed every month, i'm normally very regular but since ttc my periods have been up to a week late most months. I am still breastfeeding my 2 year old and have been wondering if that is causing problems, though i've been having periods for the past year and a half. Anyway i am now 11 days late, the longest ever, and i have very sensitive nipples, so much so that feeding my little girl has become extremely uncomfortable. I have been feeling a little sick and quite tired aswell.
I really want to test but i'm scared that i'll get a BFN! I know its silly and i should just test so that i know one way or the other but i just keep putting it off. If i am this will be my last as i already have four other kids aged 21, 20, 14 and 2, i am also going to be 40 in a couple of weeks time. Should i be brave and test or should i just stay blissfully ignorant.
I know how you feel in a way Tracey. I just had a BFP on friday, but was really unsure whether or not to test mostly because I knew I would be really disappointed with a BFN. At first I thought not knowing would be better than a BFN, because then I could be pregnant in my mind IYSWIM! In the end I did test - mostly because if I wasn't pg then I would have had to find out why I was feeling so darn sick lol! So you do whatever you feel is right for you, and good luck with whatever you decide x
You don't have to test if you don't want to. Just because it's possible to get it confirmed very early, doesn't mean you have to do so. Trouble is that worrying and wondering about it may make you late in any case! Why not buy a test and leave it in the bathroom cabinet so that if you do decide on the spur of the moment to go ahead and test, you don't have time to agonise over it.
Still have'nt bought a test yet, was going to today after i finished work but my 20 year old son turned up to meet me from work and as i don't want to tell anyone that i might be PG i could'nt go and buy one! so i will have to put it off until tommorrow. Been feeling really quite queasy today, still got very sore nipples and on and off indigestion. I really want it to be a positive but just so scared of getting a negative.
I will update when i finally pluck up the courage to test.
Tracey, crossing fingers & toes for you!
because when i was worried i was pg things were the other way round for me, it was an accidental pregnancy (wasn't with the guy) and i wanted it to be negative! I kept putting off doing the test so i could blissfully ignorant imagining I wasn't pg lol!
although of course i got the very best result in the end
How do you persuade your DHs to have more babies. Mines not budging a millimetre for number 4. I'm out of ideas and getting worked up about it now. I don't want more than 4 (right now) so how do you get to have 5 and 6? Please share your tactics.
