I am so petrified

So this happened yesterday...

I've not posted on here for a while, I decided to try a few months of not really thinking about infertility so had a little break. And generally my mind has been occupied by other things.

Until this cropped up. And now I am so so scared. It was totally unexpected and I feel I should be so much happier than I am. When I told hubby we both cried. Cried because we are frightened...I just don't want my body to fail me again. I'll be calling my consultant's secretary today, unfortunately consultant is away for whole of August. But I'm just feeling I need some sort of reassurance that I will get through this.

This has come off the back of my second round of Clomid. Didn't try on first round because my tummy felt really uncomfortable around ovulation. This time I had no symptoms and in all honesty I had presumed the Clomid wasn't working this month.

Why can't we have a crystal ball?!

Sorry for the moan. Husband and I have talked it over and over yesterday but I've been awake now since about 3am and need to vent it somewhere. So scared πŸ˜”πŸ™

Firstly, congratulations! What a surprise. Secondly, I think it's to be expected to be nervous as it is a surprise and also you had tried to switch off from the whole ttc thing. I hope the news settles in and you both can begin to be excited but do it in your own time. Finally, how utterly delicious to have this as your own perfect little secret. No hospital procedures, just a conception out of the blue. What a wonderful blessing! Enjoy having this special time with your husband when you know something wonderful albeit terrifying. Sending a big hug. xxx

Congratulations! I think being scared is a natural reaction, especially on this site after it being such a journey to get your BFP. Would you feel comfortable seeing someone other than your normal consultant? If not then it's not too long to go until September so hopefully you'll see them soon.

I think your reaction is totally understandable and natural. Pregnancy after infertility is scary! Don't put any pressure on yourself to feel a certain way - it will happen naturally in time as you grow more confident. Congratulations!! X

Hi all, sorry it's been a while for me to reply. I must thank you all so much for your calm and reassuring words. I've had a busy weekend so I've been able to distract myself a bit, and next weekend we have decided to pay privately for a 6 week scan. I've taken more HPTs just for more reassurance again and fortunately all positive. It just doesn't seem real and I just want so badly for things to go smoothly. Funny how we want something to happen so much and then when it does happen it's a whole new kettle of fish of worry. Wouldn't it be so nice to have a crystal ball! Thank you again even with this result I have great comfort from the support on here, you're all amazing πŸ’— xxxx
