Positive

Yesterday I took my 2nd pregnancy test and it was positive, I can't believe it, we have told our parents and a couple of close friends and everyone one is so happy and over the moon, but I was just wondering if anyone else who is now pregnant could answer a question for me, when does it sink in and when does it actually start feeling real?

I think I had convinced myself it was never gonna happen, so still trying to convince myself it's really happening.

Huge congratulations. It does take a while to sink in. When I started having pregnancy symptoms such as sore boobs and cramps that is when it sunk in. Unfortunately mine ended in a miscarriage and currently waiting for a follow up appointment. I wish you all the best. xxxx

Hi Sunny Skies, I am so sorry that you had a miscarriage, thank you for being so kind to reply on my post.

My boobs are already really sore and having cramps.

Was this your first IVF? Xx

Congratulations! I'm not sure how it will sink in, I got my BFP on Monday and while grateful I don't see myself as pregnant, just technically still in the running. I have a scan on the 4th of August so hope that might help me feel more sure, do you have yours booked yet?

Congratulations again Xx

I think it doesn't really sink in until you see the heartbeat on that scan. I know when I naturally conceived I couldn't believe it until I saw and heard the heartbeats. I know my boss is currently pg, but still anxious until the scan. Even then I won't be happy until 12 weeks as she lost her last embie at 7 weeks. Good luck xxx

Hi Madcatlady55, congratulations. I'm thinking maybe it might sink in when I have scan, but think I might be a emotional wreak when I hear the heartbeat lol. Xx

Hi Hun congratulations . I couldn't beleve it when I got my positive as I think me and my partner almost talked ourselves into the fact that the first go of IVF was a practice round .

Anyway it was a positive result first go , I had a scan at 6 weeks and was still half expecting them to dry nothing was there.

We both couldn't beleve it when we saw the heartbeat , was amazing.

Apart from the odd twinge and odd moments of feeling sick ( been v lucky) and extreme tiredness / I actually forget I'm pregnant .

We told a few family members and close friends, big now people are starting to notice my tiny bump 😌, we have our 12 wk scan nxt Saturday and I'm still slightly nervous and don't think it will properly sink in until then .

Take good care of yourself and rest when you can , lots of early nights 😊 Xxx

Hi Aimaim77, I'm the same as you, I never thought it would work for me. How far along was you when you started getting a bump? Congratulations and good luck for your 12 week scan. Xx

Hi,

Well I have to say I had a bit of a tummy befor getting pregnant but now it's more shapely lol .

A few people at wrk have noticed my changing shape and I've had to deny it to some people as not a lot of people know yet.

There's definitely a bump now , and I'm 11 weeks . I'd say the shape started changing a few weeks ago so at 9 or so weeks .

Can not wait for my scan nxt Saturday .

Hope your pregnancy goes well Hun x
