So my Darling Husband and I were not trying but I was in between birth control pills for a few weeks and what do ya know? I guess sometimes that’s all the time you need lol. Darling Husband is super happy and I’m kinda a mix of happy, scared, and sad. Mainly because not only is this unplanned but we’re also still pretty young (22 & 23). I’ve always wanted a family but I had this as part of the plan in 4-5 years from now. I guess I just feel kinda guilty that I’m sad and scared because so many people work hard to ttc and some never are able to. I’m grateful for this but I can’t help but feel like I’m not ready…..ugh.
Anyways here’s a pic of my BFP at 12 dpo!

I’m one of those bees you’re worried about- I’m 41 and absolutely desperate to be a mum and give my husaband a baby before it’s too late, and I’m having no luck yet. BUT, your story is your story, not mine or anyone else’s. The great thing is that you’re married, your husband is thrilled and having kids so young means you will have more years with them (it sounds brutal but it’s true). It must be very scary because I remember being your age, but you’ve got 9 months to ‘get ready’….nature makes it that way. This is so exciting. Take your time to get used to it and know it will be the best thing that ever happened to you! You really mustn’t worry about other people. 🙂 xxxx

As someone who went through some serious crap to get pregnant, you have nothing to feel guilty about. Having a baby is a huge life change, and the opinions of others have no place in your new little family or in the care of your child. I hope the concerns wipe away soon for you! Look at it this way, you’ll be much younger when the kiddos go off into the real world, leaving you lots of time to have fun with your husband!

newbie1123 : Congratulations! I’m also newly pregnant (17DPO) on the first time TTC as well. Just consider yourself blessed and there’s no reason to feel guilty. Enjoy this time!

Don’t feel guilty bee! I’m 30, my pregnancy was planned, and at 32.5 weeks pregnant now, I STILL get scared! I have moments of panic where I realize our lives will never be the same. But I also can’t wait to meet my son and kiss his little cheeks… I’m full of all sorts of different emotions throughout any given day.
Congratulations OP, I’m sure you’ll do just fine! As someone else pointed out, you have 9 months to adjust! 🙂

Congratulations! Everyone’s body is different – you don’t have much control over it. My cousin got pregnant 3 times while on birth control. I was on birth control for 10 years (never missed a pill!) – stopped due to migraines – and was pregnant the first time we had sex. I figured it would take some time for my body to get back in the swing of things – but no. Be happy you’re able to get pregnant – and being young can actually be a blessing. You’re still young enough that you have the energy to keep up with them. My friend just had her first (after years of miscarriages, IVF, etc… ) at age 48 – and she’s finding it very difficult on her old body.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments! You guys are so sweet, I just have about a million things running through my head right now but you guys made me feel a little better 🙂 I’m just a little overwhelmed with it and the fact that Darling Husband and I have only been married and living together for 3 months has been freaking me out too.

newbie1123 : Congratulations! You’re going to do great! You obviously are going to take being a parent seriously and your baby is so lucky! And also — you have about 9 months to get ready for baby actually being there, you know. So just take even more advantage of the alone time with your husband! I’ve been hearing a lot about babymoons lately, too — maybe start planning something like that and feel like you still got to take advantage of your newlywed life, too! 🙂

newbie1123 : Hiya, just wanted to say that I understand completely how you feel at the moment. I found out I was pregnant after failed condom and failed morning after pill. I felt quite bewildered at being pregnant and to be honest, think I have suffered with antenatal depression because of it. Please take care of yourself and talk to your partner and other close family if you can, they can support you when your hormones go a bit mental and you start feeling rubbish with morning sickness and whatever else.
Take care of yourself.

newbie1123 : Congrats that’s so exciting! And I’m sure you will be a great mom. Curious though if you weren’t trying how do you know you were 12dpo and know to test before your missed period?

newbie1123 : I felt the same way with my first one. We were newly married and newly living together (3 months as well). I remember taking the test on a whim after my husband teased me about being pregnant for a couple of days and seeing it turn positive before I was done in the bathroom lol
The “ha ha ha” turned into “oh sh*t… oh no…wait, yay? i mean… this is surreal… like, a mom? somebody’s mom? me? how?” Then I just sat by myself… and my husband was excited and kept standing super close and asking me questions. I was annoyed and just wanted to be left alone but wanted to appear happy for him.
You just need time to process it. As long as you have a supportive husband and a good doctor, everything else will fall into place. Just do your best.

happy2bee : I was having alot of cramping and just weird symptoms so when the thought of pregnancy popped into my mind I took the test to kinda ease my worry haha. Obviously that didn’t work lol.
TaurianDoll : Thank you! Your story sounds alot similar to mine. My husband was even joking around about me being pregnant too haha. I don’t think it’s sunk in completely for him yet but he’s been super supportive so far.
