I got my BFP this evening, I'm so happy but it doesn't feel real yet. DH isn't home from work yet so I can't tell him yet.
What do I do now? Do I need to make a doctor's appointment or what? I'm unsure how far along I am, probably only 2 weeks but my period last month was so light I did wonder if it was an implantation bleed, although I'm normally very light.
I'm also worried because in the past fortnight I've got quite drunk once and drunk several cans of red bull a day, and cleaned out the cat litter tray several times, all things you shouldn't do while pregnant. Should I be worried or will it be ok?
Congrats!! Don't worry I was absolutely rotten drunk two days before I got my positive test and I am now 14 weeks. I would book a docs appointment to get everything started and they will tell u what else u need to do x
It will be ok! Everyone does things like that before they know - I had my bfp on new year's day so you can imagine how restrained I had been in the weeks before! I also have a cat and changed her litter regularly before I knew, as long SD you always wash your hands etc the risks will be v v small. Ring your gp and ask them what happens next in my practice I never saw the doctor, just referred straight to the midwife. Mine was lovely and dealt with everything, including reassuring me about wine, cats etc. Congratulations!!
Don't worry-I was 15 wks before I realised and got married in this time, including hen do's in London-going to Nottinghill carnival (leave you to imagine what was inhaled there) and a club do where I don't even remember arriving!!!!
I'm mostly thinking ohmygodYAY holycrapi'mgoingtohaveaBABY and other such incoherent things. I'm also wondering when the puking will start cos I'm a bit nauseous today!
I did the hpt to get the disappointment of a bfn out of the way so it wouldn't spoil my weekend. And because I felt a bit sick and light headed at work and didn't want to start thinking I was pregnant just because I wanted it so badly. I didn't expect it to be positive, we've only been trying a few months. I'm so happy. I think my brain short circuited!
Congrats! Don't worry about what MIGHT or might NOT happen with nausea and try to eat as healthily as possible. There are theories out there that suggest morning (or all-day) sickness is due to an imbalance in nutrients...I have no idea if that's true but I followed the Patrick Holford pregnancy eating guide (it's definitely not a DIET!) and had no nausea whatsoever.
He'd had a a stressful day at work so I said I had some good news and told him. He promptly stressed out about it (he doesn't handle life changing events well) even though he was really happy. I don't think it's really sunk in yet.
I just did another test which was unsurprisingly also positive
