Just found out I'm pregnant and can't stop smiling

Just that really. I've had a lot of conversations recently about having children and wasn't sure how I felt, conflicts between wanting children and various worries about being a mum. Did test this morning and just started bouncing around with a big grin on my face when I saw result, feels like I've figured out how I really feel about it. Wanted to share somewhere because only DH knows in RL and I want to shout it from the rooftops.

Not sure. What I thought was last period might have been implantation bleed so either mid-November or mid-December. Got first appointment with midwife in a couple of weeks so I'll find out more then.

I have an early December baby. Was a lovely time of year to have a baby (not too big in the summer time was a plus too!)
How lovely!

What lovely news flowers

I'm February and brothers July - I remember mum saying it was horrible being heavily pregnant in the summer (and heavily pregnant when it's icy wasn't great either!)

I got my BFP yesterday too, after over a year of trying. I don't think I've come down yet! grin

Congratulations prettygirl, it's the best feeling ever!

I have an end of November baby, it's was sooo lovely having a tiny newborn at Christmas. Congratulations! 🎉👍🌹

Three of mine are winter babies. Its much easier to dress for cold weather when you are big (as long as you can find a coat) plus you don't tend to feel the cold as much smile

Fantastic! smile. I remember finding out I was pregnant with DTDs (a lovely surprise) and having such a warm glow of happiness

How lovely! Aah, you've made me well up remembering how it felt to get that BFP (although at 23 weeks pg pretty much everything makes me weep!). Congratulations!

Congratulations !!!!
I'm in a similar situation, just found out yesterday and am soooo thrilled. Want to tell everybody. Can't wait for the first scan already

prettygirlincrimsonrose Wed 26-Apr-17 09:10:05

Congratulations MW2018
Really want to tell people too, spent weekend with brother and I wonder if he guessed from me not drinking. Seeing midwife on Friday so hopefully will get date for a scan, do you know when yours is?

MW2018 Wed 26-Apr-17 09:18:48

No I literally just found out yesterday morning and did another test this morning to confirm as it was our first month trying so surprised it was so quick and soooo happy. I was expecting a 6-12month wait :-)
I am still literally at the 'what do I do stage' so need to get my self referral form filled and then get apts etc.
I have two christenings and a wedding in the next 8 weeks so will need to come up with some bright excuses around not drinking so people don't guess. Best of luck on Friday
