My DH and I have been trying to conceive for 9 months now. I have just done a test and I am pregnant!! I know I should be delighted but all I feel is pure terror. Is this normal? Please tell me this is normal. I had pictured being delighted and did not expect this at all. What is wrong with me??
I was the same as LucyDolly. Came off the pill and thought it would take a good while. I was pregnant within 6 weeks and felt utterly overwhelmed and terrified. It took a while for it to settle in that's for sure. Perfectly normal
Thank you lucydolly. Congratulations!!! And it does make me feel better knowing I'm not mad. I just feel on the brink of tears and like I could vomit at any moment. Couldn't sleep last night as had just realised my period hadn't come and I was two weeks late so I'm the same as you I suppose. About six weeks. I'm 43 and all I can think is what can go wrong. This for some reason while trying didn't seem like a big issue but now it's all I can think of!
I was the same, we had been trying for 5 Months but talking about it for ages, then when I saw the positive test I started panicking wondering if we'd made a mistake if we were really ready. I think it's totally normal once the nerves have settled you'll be overcome with excitement 19 days left for me! X
Me too! We were 'trying' for 6 weeks so it was planned, I'd been on the pill a long time so just assumed it would take us a while. Only took a test because I was having a big drinking weekend so wanted to make sure, and there were the lines I was shaking like a leaf when I told DH, and I would say it took until after my scan to calm down and feel positive about it all. Don't worry, how you feel is perfectly normal
Thank you all so much! It's good to know I'm not going mad. My poor DH doesn't quite know what to make of me!! He hasn't seen me like this before ( and to be fair nor have I!!) but to know you all went through the same thing is very reassuring. Thank you
Jmscp. I feelfor you!!! Good luck with it all and it really can't be long now. Thank you again everyone. I'm starting to relax a bit, knowing feeling like this is normal helps. Damn movies. The expectant mothers who have been wanting to get pregnant always look delighted when those two lines come up. I cried and can only think of everything that can go wrong!!! I shall blame it on the hormones!!!! Thank you all so much
