Lovely news, congratulations!

Congratulations! I tried that long with both my pregnancies and it's certainly a weird feeling when you finally get that positive result.
Don't pressure yourself on what you think you should be feeling. Go with the flow!

Congratulations! Download a pregnancy app and enjoy tracking the growth of your little bean via the medium of fruit and veg! Cute at the start when you go through olives and peaches....just plain scary when they liken it to a watermelon though!

The veg thing is a bit corny but being able to visualise the size and reading about how it was developing each week made it seem much more real to me.

Can totally relate, we were trying for 19 months before we got out BFP. Currently 7+2 and it still hasn't sunk in, despite the sore boobs and going off food.

I've enjoyed tracking things on an app to try make it feel more real.

What does the number + 2 mean? I'm guessing how many weeks +2?? It's currently a poppy seed! Which I love downloaded app last night! Struggling with pain but keep thinking of it as period pains as that what it feels like, weird I have to not think of it as that!

7 weeks 2 days (well 3 days today). Yeah I had quite bad period type pains around that time

Congratulations! Totally understand the feelings of shock. I currently pg after TTC for 4 years and 6 shots at IVF. Even now at 11 weeks (size of a lime grin) I don't think I can quite believe it!

Congrats OP and happy flowers

I know how you feel! We were trying the same amount of time, and I'm now 6 weeks. Felt like a fraud when my midwife / scan appointments came through the post yesterday

chicken2015 Sat 11-Jun-16 18:39:37

Saying I have a midwife appointment in July feels so strange to say that! We r 4 weeks 5 days

Hi chicken, we're in the same boat, also found out yesterday, feeling in shock! Happy shock! Also just past 4 weeks, not even called doctors yet. Congratulations xxx
