Just found out that i'm 5 weeks pregnant with my first baby and I'm pretty terrified...! Excited too, but mostly terrified!

I am 40 and came off the pill at Christmas - I was convinced that I wasn't ovulating as my cycle was all over the place, so really wasn't actually expecting anything to happen. In fact I was getting ready to talk to my GP about nothing happening!

Got a positive result the day my partner and I came back from holiday - during which I was doing some pretty serious sport (cycling), having the odd glass of wine, and taking lots of tablets for a horrid cold / cough / sinus thing. Eeek. I now obviously feel TERRIFIED that i've done and taken all the wrong things... I have my first doctors appointment next Friday so hopefully he can advise me!

Ironically my easily stressed boyfriend is really chilled about everything - whereas I am usually unflappable and can;t quite believe what's happened.....!!!
