I got my BFP this morning! I was absolutely shocked. I just felt pregnant. Took a test, and low and behold, BFP! I got a little obsessive and dipped a whole bunch of sticks in my cup of pee, just to be sure. I am so excited, but so hesitant to be happy. I know its early, but I want to tell hubby, but worry if I tell him and its a chemical or I miscarry it will be too hard. But I know I will need him if I loose the pregnancy.
What do I need to do now? Call the doctor?
How do I get rid of the urge to test again to confirm?
I am still in shock. I AM PREGNANT! I think it will feel more real when I tell Hubby.

Tell your husband, make a doctors appointment, start talking folic acid if you aren’t already and enjoy this moment! Feels like only yesterday I got my first BFP and my 12 day old daughter is currently asleep in my arms 😊
Yes, there is a risk of miscarriage esp in the first trimester but the majority of pregnancies are successful and every day your odds get better. Of all people you’d want the support of if the worst did happen, it would be your husband so I can’t see why you wouldn’t tell him.

Yay congrats bee!!! Those are beautiful lines! I know for a lot of people its mentally better to put the tests down once you get a clear BFP like that, but I continued testing every other day until 5 weeks. Every other day was good because I could see a clear progression without driving myself crazy day to day.
I waited one week before calling the Dr. because I just wanted to make sure I made it a few days past my missed period before making an appointment. But you can definitely call right away if you want! My Dr. doesn’t do blood tests without a reason but it seems like some do if you want/ask.

Congrats!! I Know how you’re feeling about wanting to tell but worried about what could do wrong. I had a miscarriage in the fall, I had told my husband right away and didn’t miscarry until week 10. By then we had told our families as well. It was hard but I’m so glad I had that support system,especially in my husband as it was his baby/loss too.
I also got a positive today. It is so faint and then I took a digital when I got to work (and after drinking a liter of water) and it was negative so I’m trying to remain calm. Not sure really how to feel!
Anyways, good luck!

Congrats! I’d tell your husband immediately. Won’t you want his support no matter what happens? You guys are in this together!
Those look like really strong lines, so I’d take encouragement from that.

First of all, congrats! For vitamins, start on a prenatal one if you haven’t already and baby aspirin. If you’re 35 or older, also take 2000 mg of calcium. I would also recommend starting a workout routine if you’re not on one already. Nothing crazy, maybe yoga, light jogging, some cardio. Exercise is very good for the baby. Also, start eating organic for all the dirty dozen fruits and veggies. I personally wouldn’t be able to wait until Darling Husband gets off from work to tell him, but good on you for having so much willpower.
