I'm Angela and I'm 36yrs old. My partner and I have been ttc for a couple of months.
I've been taking cheap pound shop tests over the course of this week, probably a bit too early.
I had a negative test, then one began looking negative, but after 2/3minutes a faint positive showed.
Another negative.
A couple more verrry faint positives.
By yesterday I'd had enough and got my partner to get a more expensive digital test :-D
It showed as 1-2weeks pregnant this morning.
From my own dates I think I'm more like 3wks, but will call my gp surgery on Monday to find out what I do next.

I've never felt so many emotions at once as I did when I read that test.
The result felt like it took ages to come through lmao!
I was happy, excited, scared and overwhelmed all at once.
I'm definitely happy, as it's been my dream to be a mummy since I was a teenager.
We told our closest friends and parents today who are all over the moon.
However I'm aware it's still extremely early days yet, and I'm trying to make myself relax and see how things go, especially as my age may give higher risk factors. But I can't help be happy.
I've not done much else but google pregnancy and baby related things all day. I'm getting obsessed! Lol.

I thought it might be nice to come on here and maybe make a friend or two with others going through similar.

I'm in the same boat! Congratulations!

Taken 3 first response tests which are all very faint, but then I'm not even at 4 weeks yet so I'm not surprised.

Feeling bloaty/sick this morning which is freaking me out a little. Also planning on calling the drs tomorrow to book an appointment.

Congratulations to you too!!
I've been having slight cramps and twitches past couple of days.
I'm looking forward to the experience ahead 😊

I found out on Thursday that I'm 5 weeks! Feeling frightenly normal which is worrying me!

Congrats issy!
I really wouldn't worry. Remember everyone is an individual, so it makes sense their pregnancy experiences will be too.
Don't worry about not feeling 'how you're supposed to'.
Just enjoy what's the norm for you!
But if anything does concern you, always seek medical advice.

This is a happy time for us all. Let's enjoy it!!!
