Pregnancy: 5 weeks

5 weeks is when it was all over last time.  5 weeks is the day I’ve been dreading since I got my first positive.  But so far, all is well.  And now I’m finally on my own laptop, I thought I’d share my hpt photos with you 🙂

My first, done at 10dpo in the evening.  This is a First Response one step, not the early detection one as I managed to buy the wrong kind.  Still, not a bad line for 10dpo.

I had a rubbish cheap test left in my drawer which I waited until 19dpo before I finally did.  The wait was worth it, beautiful lines!

Finally, this morning, at 21dpo I felt brave enough to do my remaining digital test.  I’ve been dreading this day but I’m now feeling a bit happier about this pregnancy.

There’s still a long way to go yet, I know that, but I feel as though it’s one milestone reached.  I’m also feeling nauseous when I’m hungry and my boobs are feeling quite painful at times so these symptoms are helping me to believe that this might actually be our rainbow baby.

We’re still in some weird limbo at home.  Me and my husband aren’t really mentioning the pregnancy much as I think we’re both scared of getting excited for something to go wrong again.  I have a pelvic ultrasound scheduled in two weeks time.  I’m going to keep the appointment and beg them to still scan me.  I’ll be 6+6 on scan day so, fingers crossed, we should see a heartbeat.

We still haven’t told a soul about this pregnancy.  We’re likely to see my parents this weekend and, if they ask, I won’t lie to them but ideally I’d like to have the scan first.  We’ll see how it goes.
