Post subject: I'm New & I'm Pregnant
I've been hovvering here for a little while now. We did a test (well actaully about 7) over the last week or so, the last 5 have been BFPs 2 different types of test so i guess we are having a baby! - I've got an appt with dr's a week on mon - but if my calculations are right I'll only be 3 weeks pg.
I can't believe it - we've been ttc for 4 years now and are on the waiting list for ivf treatment - all the recent poking around and tests etc.. must have moved something !!
We are sooo happy but I still don't feel like its real. I am obsessing over the fact that something is going to go wrong. I keep doing tests to make sure I'm still pg - the + line is getting darker each time!!
We have each told 1 close friend at this point and plan to tell the grandparents-to-be after our dr appt. Probably try to hold in the secret to everyone else until 12 week.
I can't explain how excited we both are, keeping this a secret will be very very hard.... what did you guys do??
Thanks for reading

Hi happychick77, welcome to askbaby. Me and my OH have told his mom and dad (i have not contact with my family) and I have told 2 friends and we are now going to try and not tell anyone until I have my scan!!!!! I suggested we do this when we were TTC and it sounded easy - but now we are preg I WANNA TELL THE WORLD

Thanks everyone for all your lovely comments.
Emma - I feel sorry for you with all that sickness - thats a part that I am not looking forward to! lol
Gerrardsgirl.... I WANNA TELL THE WORLD too!!!
It's just soo hard!! I am quite a calm and laid back person so hopefully I can relax and take each day as it comes. I think hubby is finding it harder to keep it in - he's so funny about it.
Congrats to you ladies too! Fingers crossed for everyone

Post subject: weeks pg?
thanks claire & rosie
I was wondering... I pretty much know the weekend of conception - which would make me just 3 weeks - but my last period start date was 1 Oct which would make me 5w2d,
which would the dr use to tell me how far gone I am or my DD?
