Forum home Getting pregnant Trying to conceive


hey all,

havent been on here for a while, cos i didnt want to get too obsessed! but this morning i took a test and it was a BFP!! still cant believe it. Went to the doctors this morning (was already going for another reason) and as i havent had a period since coming off the pill, they dont know how far i am and i have to wait for my first midwife appointment to know, which is 9th Oct!!!!!!!!!!!!! its crazy!!

Can i ask thou, as there have been a few BFP recently, how many tests have people been doing? i have only done one, but how likely is it to be a false positive?!?! i know i sound a bit crazy but i still cant quite believe it!!!

Good luck to all trying!! baby dust for everyone!! image


  • CONGRATULATIONS to you both!!!!!

  • congratsulations hun enjoy your pregnancy xxxx
  • Congratulations!
    I only did 1 test but alot of people do a couple just to make sure.I dont think a false positive is very common, i personally dont think they can be positive for no reason but some people say they have had false positives. Get another test just to make sure and enjoy your pregnancy!

  • I only did the one but if it'll make you feel better do a second but there is no need! I have to say though that I don't think your midwife will be able to tell you how far on you are (sorry don't want to disappoint) but you will need a dating scan for that there is nothign the midwife does at that appt that can tell her how far on you are.

    Anyway congrats and relax and enjoy!
  • hey, I was told that i would have a scan at the first appointment? is this not normal?

  • you prob wont have scan at forst app hun your midwife will prob book you one while you are there, mine did. congrats i know what you meen about doing more than one test in case of neg result i did 6 before i beleived it!! joseph is now 17 weeks old. good luck xxx
  • maybe they will scan you at first appt with you not having had a period since being off pill and it that's what they told you? But no that is not normal as they don't have ultrasound equipment at the midwife - you have to go to the sonographer for that!
  • Hi LS0902. Many, many congratulations to you. Hope everything goes well. When i fell pg last year having not had a period for 2/3 months, my doctor referred me for a dating scan almost straight away. This was well before any midwife appointment. Sadly, i lost that baby but i am sure that your doctor could refer you like mine did image Enjoy your pregnancy. lots of love, bluebird xxxx
  • Congratulations! hope all goes well i think i did a couple of tests with mine as they were always very faint xx
  • Hello and congratulations! That's great news. Oct 9th will seem like a lifetime away for you but it's actually my due day - 42 days to go and it feels like it's come round quick!!!
    I didn't see my midwife for ages after my first appt and not having periods for 11 years had little idea about due dates etc. Eventually found out at my scan that I was 14 weeks. I took a few tests because it's hard to believe. And I left them on the side in the bathroom for ages so I could keep looking at them!
