    Hi everyone,

    I have just joined this forum as i found out last week that im expecting my first baby! I had abosultley no idea i was pregnant as i have just had my tonsils out on Feb 3rd and thought all my symptoms were due to the recovery from this!
    I had the operation and continued to be sick in the second week after my op my friend kept telling me to do a pregnancy test but was in so much denial i put it off!
    Anyway last week i worked out my last period was on Christmas day so reluctantly i did a test and it came up positive!
    Anyway been to the doctors to have all confirmed and he has given me a rough due date of 1st Oct 2012!
    Everything seems to have come and once and it still doesnt feel real at all! Im waiting for the dates of my midwife appointment to come through but would be nice to hear how other people felt when they found out!
    It just feels like its not happening and im so worried that im not pregnant as lost all symptoms.
    Some reassurance would be lovley as been reading other posts and everyone seems so supportive!
    Thank You x

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! In a way you are so lucky to have found out later on as it can be such a long wait for some ladies (I found out the day I was due my monthlies so time is dragging by). Everyone is different and I have read so many posts on here about ladies who's symptoms have stopped and don't worry this is perfectly normal, I'm sure that the symptoms tend to ease of towards the end of tri 1. You have definitely come to the right place, everyone on here is so helpful, best of luck with your pregnancy :) xx

    Iv had my first appointment with midwife and I have my booking in appointment a week on wednesday, no scan date yet, its really dragging, I expect ill get a date after booking appointment. I had an early scan at 7+3 (had mmc last year so it was for peace of mind) saw my little bean with heartbeat, its amazing so god knows how I will feel at 12 week scan!

    No wasnt TTC at all had been on anti biotics due to tonsilitis hence the reason i had the op to have them out and my periods have always been irregular so had literally no idea. My boyfriends still shocked hopefully he be a bit more excited after the scan because we wernt expecting this and i dont think its very real to him! Ahh congratulations to you TCC it must be so rewarding when you have planned it and finally its happened because you would have had all the suspense. So glad this forum is here you dont realise how stressful everything is and how much there is to think about until you actually are pregnant! Im very happy now though xx
