Oh God, I think I'm pregnant. Eeek.

(56 Posts)

Bit of history - DP and I were TTC for several years, I had four MCs, was last pregnant in Jan 2010. We continued to TTC for two years after my last MC, then decided to take a break, moved forward with our careers, began to make our peace with the idea that it might never happen for us.

Now, my period is not due for two more days. However, am feeling a bit 'pregnant'. I have been so weepy - watched an episode of Grey's Anatomy earlier (one where Meredith picks up Zola and says 'Mama's here') and sobbed uncontrollably. I have been doing a lot of sobbing over the past few days. I normally only drink water at room temp, to the extent that I buy bottled water and store it at room temp, as even though our tap water is perfectly drinkable, it is normally too cold for me, straight form the tap. For the past few days, I cannot get enough of ice cold tap water. I adore it, drank about 2 litres today. Also, I have loved coarse peel marmalade for as long as I can remember - as of 3 days ago, I cannot abide marmalade with peel, had to go buy the no peel stuff.

My boobs are massive and very sore. I am full of energy, currently bouncing around the sitting room. I am also filled with an intense sense of euphoria. Am so damn happy I'm almost exploding with happiness. I know high energy is not a pg symptom as such, but it has been for me, every time. Also the happiness - I am usually a cynical, pessimistic person, but have always been euphoric in early pg. Finally, I had to go to Aldi tonight and buy some of their frozen jam and cream doughnuts - the last time I ate them was the first time I was pregnant. Oh, and (tmi alert) I have an obscene amount of vaginal discharge.

So, I know the obvious answer is to POAS, but DP is fast asleep and I don't drive, closest 24 hour store is a good 30 min walk away, so going to have to wait until tomorrow. Also, do not want to get DP's hopes up / freak him out. No idea what I actually want from this thread, as obviously no-one can tell me if I am pg. Just need to thrash it all out. Can anyone help keep me sane until I can POAS tomorrow? Aaaargh.

Oh, also, I have an insatiable appetite, when I am normally a picker. Was at a family party on Sat night and ate a huge plate of chicken curry (never normally eat at parties, a hangover from my anorexia days, I hate eating in front of people). Then at lunch yesterday, ate a massive BLT sandwich - my family all commented on the fact that I finished a meal, which I have not done in years.

Only thing I can say is I knew and was convinced well before I did my test but just kept putting it to back of my mind. Then finally did test and now 5 weeks. I knew pretty much after conception that something was different this time and I've had 2 miscarriages in the past two years.
But u need to test!!!
Hope it is positive for u, will keep everything crossed! Please update when u know xx

Ah, thanks, RJM17. Your kind words mean so much. Now I am crying again. I just can't help it! If I am pg, it does feel different this time. Which might mean that it is a 'healthier' pg than the last four? Going to have to POAS tomorrow. But am shit scared, as if it is negative, I will feel like a failure, again.

I understand what u mean but its not failing its just not the right time!! I'm a strong believer in everything happens for a reason! My mum had miscarriages after me then had my sister and we couldn't be closer but she would not be here if any of the others had been successful.
Let me know how u get on xxx

Positive thoughts

Fingers crossed!
We ttc for 5 years, had 9 rounds of clomid, 3 of IUI and 2 mc then finally gave up and resigned ourselves to not having a baby, booked a fantastic holiday, went for retraining at work etc and then 'accidentally' conceived our gorgeous DD who is currently snuggled up asleep in my arms. It was actually quite a shock to find myself pregnant after all that time and took some getting my head around! I really hope it's good news smile

RJM17 Wed 20-Mar-13 15:34:55

Did u do ur test? Hope it was good news xx

Shadows Have also been sobbing over Greys Anatomy. Am also pregnant.

Hope that we can say 'snap!' smile but please don't ever, ever feel like a failure. You aren't at all. Pregnancies and healthy, screaming babies don't come to the people who want, or deserve, them most. 'Tis entirely random (apart from a couple of prerequisites obviously!) One of the most totally random things in life as far as I can see. No success or failure on anybody's part.
