Hi all,
I was 6 days late today and so I took 3 (yes 3!) tests. All are positive! I told my husband but he's a bit underwhelmed, he says he just doesn't know whether he can believe it and doesn't know how reliable tests are. Can you recommend any way I can reassure him? And also should I make a Drs appt for them to confirm?
Thanks so much for reading.

Drs in the UK generally will not confirm as tests cost money and are no more accurate than a home pregnancy test. They might want to see you to get you signed up with a midwife though!

It might help your husband if you get a digital test? It reads out 'pregnant' or 'not pregnant'. There are even digital ones that can tell you approx how long since you ovulated and thus 'how pregnant' you are...

I always do a digital for dh so he can see it spelt out. It seems to do the trick.
