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.

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

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).

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.
