I am 4 days late with my period. Which up until we were ttc was rare, but then last month I was 2 days late and then AF came. This month when I was one day late i took a test and it was negative. I swore to myself I would wait a whole week and if AF still didnt come then I would test again. Yea that didn’t happen. Now 4 days late and I test again when i got home from work and it was positive! I immediately started crying. I’m so happy.
I immediately wanted to call Darling Husband and tell him, but I had boughten him a gift as a way to tell him and I really want to do it that way. He is away for work all weekend and I did call him to try to get him to come home early, but that is just not possible (he is in the military and it is duty weekend) so I will wait, I then wanted to call my mother, but agian I had a cute way I wanted to tell her and I need to make myself wait.
on top of I’m really early and shouldn’t be telling people (which I don’t plan to just Darling Husband and mom) but after getting a neg and now a pos a few days later I feel like I should test again tomorrow (which I will, I have a digital test I have been saving to confirm pos whenever it came, so I look forward to that in the morning as long as it has the same result as tonights)
I’m just so happy, I want to tell the world and can’t. How have you other ladies dealt with this?

Congrats! Also such a cute present for DH! When I found out I was pregnant, we were in the middle of a snow storm. I live in alabama, so we don’t know how to function in the snow. My Darling Husband got stuck at work for 36 hours until it cleared up. I had to wait until he got home and it drove me crazy! Once he got home though it was worth the wait to see his reaction!

The wait to tell him is going to be so worth it!! I know mine was. I work in the travel industry and got a positive at 5am no reception, no chance to call Darling Husband, when I got home around 12 I showed up on our door step with a papa burger and baby burger from a&w and waited for him to figure it out. I recorder end the whole thing.
In the meantime to keep your sanity hang out with us bees! We don’t get tired of hearing about symptoms, fantasizing over what baby will look like or giving advice. That is how I got through my first 15 weeks.

Thank you! after the initial shock calmed down I am doing a little better waiting, but not much. I am definitely managing waiting to tell Darling Husband until he gets home. I want to see his face and am going to try to record it. (I think later when the times comes sharing the video would be a great way to tell his mom, she will enjoy getting to see his face when he found out)
however, not telling my mom is much more challenging. I do not see myself making it to 12 weeks with her. but I will try by using this site and you ladies!!

goldengrlbride: Congratulations! I just want to say a false positive is extremely rare. Some people mistake evaporation lines with a positive result but other than that, from a scientific perspective, after you got a positive hpt there’s no need to take 10 more of different brands like they do in the movies! so feel reassured you’re indeed pregnant 🙂
