So it’s alot sooner than I anticipated (getting pregnant that is) and although it won’t be confirmed until tonight, I’m not really excited. I’m actually quite terrified. My period is 7 days late so IDK what to expect.
I’m not a baby person at all. I’m the kind of person that thinks puppies are cuter than babies. lol. (sorry if that offends, but well I just don’t like babies).
Anyway, I know many say that I will change my tune once I have one of my own and although my husband and I planned on having children before I turn 35 (I’m 34 now), I just feel like I’m not ready yet.
We were just married 2 months ago and well my husband just wanted to start and purposely didn’t pull out even though I told him we had to be really careful (I know TMI) sorry.
Anyway, if this test comes up positive, I’m sure I will be fine and accept it. I do want children and I’m pretty sure I will be a good parent. I’m just scared that’s all. I’m just not ready to hop on the baby train, but I best get on it before the train leaves and never comes back. :/

Fingers crossed that the outcome is what you want it to be.
Having a baby is a HUGE life change, I can understand how it would be terrifying.

@KatNYC2011: yes, that’s my fear. We have been together for 3 years and have 3 dog children. I don’t know what the baby is going to bring to the table, but it scares me.
I just wanted to be married for a while, but who knows, my period could be late due to stress. argh…. I hate waiting!

I agree with the previous poster!
If it turns out that you are not pregnant, I think you and your husband need to actually agree on this properly, rather than him just taking matters into his own hands, anyway the pull out method you guys are using isnt always 100% effective so if you guys dont want to have babies you really should avoid sex at certain times of the month altogether or use some actual contraceptives

@bells: Well I did tell him afterwards and he said that it could take up to 1 year to get pregnant because I had just stopped taking my BC pills for that reason.
Anyway, he didn’t do it maliciously he just knows we have to start soon, but my soon was next year sometime.
Anyway, I don’t think I will ever be ready, I just won’t; the whole thought terrifies me to no end, but it is an inevitable reality that I’m going to have to face sooner or later. Just scared that’s all.

I was scared too when we got a positive in our first cycle after the wedding. It took about 10 weeks to get used to the idea. Now I wouldn’t change a thing!

Only time will tell if you are P, but just thought I would mention that your cycles can be VERY wonky after going off the pill (I remember you mentioning you only just went off in a prior post). So, if you are 7 days late, it may mean nothing (other than your body is adjusting to getting off the pill. It took me 35 days to get my P after going off the pill (I was then 30).

@Erindesmar: Well that’s refreshing to know.
Did you have any symptoms though? Dizziness, nausea, exhaustion, hunger, cramps, achiness etc… I have all of those symptoms, so if you had those too than maybe I just need to wait it out.

Fingers crossed you get the outcome you want tonight (although I’m not even convinced you’re quite sure what you want to see on that test).
I’ve heard so many people say that if you try to wait until you are truely “ready”, that you’ll never end up having kids. If you are pregnant, I’m sure you’ll feel ready by the time the LO comes along.

I would definitely take a test to be sure because a home test should pick up a positive at this point.
I had weird symptoms after going off the pill – insanely sore breasts, lots of cramping and twinges in my abs, etc.

I think it’s scary whether you’re ready or not – obviously more so when you’re not completely ready. We are 1000% ready and were excited to try but it’s still scary as s&!t! lol
Good luck! – please remember that because cycles are wonky after going off the pill and that a positive test can come up way later than expected, too – positive didn’t show up on the home test until almost 10 days past for me, I found out later that I actually ovulated later (wonky cycle). Just something to keep in mind just in case it comes up negative but you don’t see your period for another few days.. it’s totally possible.
