I might be completely old school and hungry cranky at this point, but voila...have some decorum, hahaha. :D

I dont think she's the type to care :)

On the other hand, once she's been through all the examinations with dildo-cam and the like, pissing into cups and the birth event itself which seems to be a spectator sport for at least 4 people peering up the business end, a one liner about her boobs and period schedule will feel like a drop in the ocean... :D

Baby steps baby step, let her get used to it...not google her hubster's name and see this tomorrow morning, hahaha.

I went through my preggo check ups with hb and male doc discussing my internal organs and travelling in a very animated way, without me understanding a word, since it was all in French, that was lovely. Maybe better than understanding them :D

I knew I was pregnant, did a test, it came up negative, my husband tried to tell me not to be sad, but I could really feel I was pregnant. Sure enough I was - with twins! Actually at that stage it was triplets (but I lost one early on). So sometimes you can know before the test can predict it.

Good luck!

I found out that I was pregnant the second time by touching the cervix. If the woman is pregnant, the cervix will be closed and hard.

Congratulation! :)

I dont even know what a cervix is ???????? :p

She does have a small bump just above her pubic area on her left hand side, we feel it when we press in just above the pubic bone, any doctors out there? is that a symptom? it has just appeared in the last few days.

Not a doctor but was pregnant 6 times and have 4 wonderful kids... i presume this the first pregnancy? The uterus (you know where the baby is nestling into as we speak with at the end the cervix:D ) is still the size of a small orange and not visible/feelable (is that a word) from the outside, usually at 10-12 weeks gestation the uterus is the size of a baseball and starts to become visible!

Well good luck, hopefully get some sleep and let us know tomorrow morning!

Congrats guys !! :msnsmile:

Happened to me too (no digital back then though....)
3 preg tests with a slight line, 1 blood test indicating just a maybebaby to the point where the doc, said: argh lady, I don't think so, there's hardly a rise in hormones :msnsarcastic:

yeah right..

.... a few months later.... :msnsmile:

Re: Pregnancy test accurancy???
 
Just wanted to add my fingers crossed for you both.

I was online discussing my womanly bits with complete strangers months before actually getting pregnant - a bit of boob talk is nothing - you wait till we get onto the "getting the thing out" topic in 9 months time!

But seriously though - a line is a line is a line and a positive is basically a positive and that's that. I'd be surprised if the blood test said any different. But whilst I wish you guys all the utmost luck and sticky-PG vibes in the world, the first few weeks do sadly often end in heartache even with the +ve right now. So, hang in there, hope it all works out.

Edited to add: I just read that back and it sounded a bit heartless - sorry about that - I know how exciting it is and I hope it's all great news for you.

Test sensitivity varies widely in HPTs. I've seen 10mIU and 100mIU. That would make a huge difference, as hcg generally doubles every ~48 hours. Meaning, one test could be + many days before a less sensitive one. Also, digitals are often less sensitive than the most sensitive line HPTs, or so I've heard.

Here's a chart comparing the sensitivity of HPTs (sadly, mostly brands in the US):

The only line tests I would avoid are blue dye tests (as opposed to pink dye ones). They have a reputation on trying-to-conceive message boards as sometimes producing false positives.

Regarding the high price of tests here, this site has them significantly cheaper than anything I've seen in stores:

Though you need to buy more than one. I like the dip tests because they are cheap (5 for 6CHF). I actually bought them in the 10 pack, I think. And ovulation tests in numbers of 20 or 30. :o Still cost less than one test at the store.

I stocked up in Singapore airport on our way back from Oz. Ovulation test kits were around CHF 1 and tests around CHF 1.50. The lady at the counter mentioned that she has seen many people that were traveling on to Europe stock up too :p
