I know I need to test but

I can't face it. Last year at the age of 42 and over 7 years TTC we decided enough is enough. We came to terms and moved on.

Today I'm 43 and I am 8 days late. I've had some slight browny coloured discharge 3-4 days ago, but nothing like the awful heavy periods I usually have. I've always been regular, never more than 1-2 days late. I've had cramps on and off for over a week. My boobs feel like I'm due on still.

I'm scared. Of hoping, of the disappointment, bringing this all up again.

I just needed to write this down, as I'm convincing myself of all sorts. Could it be? Is it the menopause? Why is my body doing this to me?

I understand that feeling totally. Thing is you do need to know either way.

I think you should take a test, you're in limbo at the moment and you will slowly drive yourself nuts! If you are pregnant you will need to be taking steps to see dr/midwife etc equally if you're not you will know where you stand (and if still no period you should book to see your gp to get to the bottom of it) I can see why you might feel anxious about it but really you need to know one way or the other don't you. Good luck and keep us updated

Sorry for the late reply, but I'm still in shock!

Yes, it's a great big BFP.

Thank you for your replies! I think I just knew but was so terrified. I still am!

curling what fantastic news! Congratulations. Take it easy, get some prenatal vitamins and tell your gp so you can get some folic acid and vitamin d tablets if you need them.
