Hi all, new to mothering.com... and mothering too!

Hi everyone,
I am not sure how this thread works, if we all introduce ourselves or if that's not necessary but I'm feeling like spilling my scared and queasy guts, so here goes.  I was only a couple of days late, but I figured that since my DH (i'm guessing that means something about husband...) and I had had a rather careless month, I would take a test.  I was by myself and saw that faint little pink line and immediately panicked.  I waited until the next day and took another one and the line was stronger.  We were planning on waiting another 5 years at least to have kids, but since we are really happy and married we can think of no good reason not to go through with this, so we are putting our best foot forward and are just beginning to get excited about it.  When I told DH he was terrified and had nothing to say, but after a couple of days of panic and "Are you sure?!"'s from him, his mood has flipped and he is more excited than me.  I am officially 4 weeks today and my sister (i am so lucky she is a doula!) says my due date is Feb 7th.  I do not feel preggo AT ALL.  I have really light cramps every once in a while, and I am now over a week late, but other than that, I just feel like same old me.  Sis told me about this website and I am super excited to find a bunch of ladies who are in the same state as myself. Honestly, I am absolutely terrified.  Motherhood is a huge deal, and our lives are about to be turned upside down.  How do you prepare for this?!

Welcome! Congrats on the pregnancy! Take a look through all of the posts and post to them if you like! It is nice knowing others are going through the same things!

I am also due on Feb 7! We are 6 weeks pregnant. You count from the first day of your period... so even though we concieved about 4 weeks ago, we are actually 6 weeks (tomorrow).

Welcome and a happy and healthy 9 months to you!
