Found out on Saturday at about 11dpo that I'm pregnant, which feels amazing as we've been trying for quite a long time. We've allowed ourselves to talk about what it might mean, telling our families etc.
I have now done a test every day since and I think the lines are getting a tiny bit darker every day, but still relatively faint (attached pic is today). Period due sometime around tomorrow or the next day.
I know that a line is a line and it means I'm pregnant but I'm just so anxious about it being a chemical. When I really think about it I don't think I have any reason to think that other than paranoia!
Can someone help me feel less crazy by just reassuring me that it's normal to have a faint line at 13dpo and that being horribly anxious about it is also very normal? Thank you
Very normal! Took a week after my missed period for the line to become solid so try not to worry and try to hold off testing as much as possible (although I know that's hard - I took one every day for the first two weeks - crazy and expensive).
Hi Hun, I think I commented on your post Saturday when I found out I was pregnant at 11days po. I have been doing the same cheap tests daily and they haven't been much darker either, but got a clear blue digital today and got this! I'd try one, it's nice to see it like that! All the best
Hey Poppy, yes I was wondering how you were getting on. How are you feeling? I actually bought one of those digital tests today and think I will do it tomorrow morning (then going to step away from the tests, promise!!).
Firstly, congratulations! And try not to obsess. I know that's easier said than done but I never allowed myself to enjoy my pregnancy as I spent the whole time waiting for something to go wrong, and now I have a healthy 3 month old baby. Taking repeated tests isn't going to stop anything from going wrong, so try to resist.
I had a negative test at 13dpo then positive at 15dpo. The tests kept getting darker and used a clear blue to confirm, though don't rely on the weeks going up on those. My 6 month old is sitting next to me now 😀 congratulations!
Doing well thanks no symptoms have really started yet apart from tender beasts and cramping pains, finally sunk in now and am over the moon! How are you doing? Oh great let me know how you get on with it tomorrow
Thanks all - you are definitely reassuring me. I'll do the clear blue digital tomorrow just so I have it in words and then I'll stop. I know there's nothing I can do if it does go wrong so I just need to relax.
Celticlassie what you said about worrying preventing you from enjoying pregnancy has struck a chord. I want to enjoy it!
Poppy I am doing ok apart from all the worrying. Boobs getting more and more sore which is sort of putting my mind at rest. Was sat at my desk today poking them - probably looked like a right weirdo .
