l've literally just found out I'm 26 weeks pregnant. I have to admit I have always been in denial about my symptoms. I suffer with PCOS and I'm a weighty girl and having irregular periods are quite normal for me especially around summer time, but since we're now in November, my periods havent changed back. I spoke to my partner about possibly being pregnant in August and both of us thought that this would never happen for us, and he's against having children. I've been suffering with very severe heartburn too which I didn't think was down to anything but my diet in the past few months, so I Went to the doctor last week(I haven't told him this) and went through some tests, and here were are, I'm pregnant. The doctor dated it at 25/26 weeks but she confirmed to me it could be more or less so she's referred me for a dating scan the day I got the tests back. I haven't heard anything from the hospital in regards to this so I'm stuck in a rut. I'm petrified of talking to him about this, because he might think I've known for ages and I haven't. Everyone I've come across seem to be very skeptical of women who find out 5 months plus. I suffer with severe anxiety also and have been having terrifying thoughts about the outcome throughout the week and it feels like I'm torturing myself. I have no idea who to speak to about this and my head is a wreck. I know I have to tell him about this, but I am so scared he might think I kept this from him. Has anyone been through anything similar or can give me some advice on how to deal with this? I feel so isolated right now.
