Just found out I'm about 5-6 weeks with my first. It's a complete surprise and I am still processing it, but
congrats! I found out yesterday and after sitting round thinking about it last night... I'm about as far along as you are :D
Did you just realize you didn't get your period or what clued you in to test?
Personally, I'm nursing so no period wasn't a huge surprise... but two weeks of being nauseous was!
It was kind of a weird series of events -- I had no idea when my period was due (that's why I'm not sure if it's 5 or 6 weeks -- heck, if I've been spacey enough, maybe it's more! I don't think so, though.), because I used a phone app to keep track of them and my phone died a few weeks ago! I really hadn't been paying attention and then I got really sick one day, left work early sick, and by the next day was totally fine -- then woke up the next day vomiting (that was yesterday.) I was like, whoa, could I be pregnant? That's not normal! And sure enough...
Thank you for sharing I love hearing how people find out when they aren't expecting it... I seriously never thought I'd have a story like that myself but alas I do!
I'm usually like you Schneckennudel, with DD2 I started testing at 9dpo and went through quite a few by 12dpo when I got my first barely even there positive (which a lot of people were telling me was still negative) at 14dpo finally got a positive FRER (which many people still thought was negative, ugh!) and by 15dpo finally had a positive digital test!
I'm just amazed going over all my stats now that I'm likely nearly 6 weeks along and didn't even realize it until I was in bed last night and realized I'd been sick much longer than I thought I had.
We'd been trying for 18 months, but this was a surprise because allllll the other months had been negative, yk? We'd kind of gotten used to just never getting pg again.
With my first, I was *exhausted* more than usual--as in, sleeping 14 hours/day and not being able to function when awake (and working 3/4 time and going to full time grad school!). After about a week of that, my bbs started to hurt a little, and I tested. We weren't trying yet--that was a year ahead of us in our "master plan," but it ended up being perfect. :)
Look at all the sweet surprise babies over here!!! Ours was planned... Well, sort of. We've been TTC for a few months, but in October we weren't really trying because we had a lot going on. And there you go... That's the month we got preggers. Sweet irony, ha ha ha! No ovulation sticks needed!!! I was shocked by that!
I have a feeling this is what our sentiment will be after baby #3. After my BFP, DH was like this doesn't have to be the last one, does it? Craziness. He is way more enthusiastic about this one than the first 2 and #3 was up for debate for a while.
