It is a little weird knowing so early in the pregnancy. I also got my BFP on cycle day 10.
Honestly, I think it is harder knowing so early. I have had 3 losses: first pg ended at 11 wks, second one at 5 wks, then I had 2 boys, then lost the last one at 8 wks. With my second pg, I got a BFP in the morning and had a m/c that evening, I was an emotional wreck! If I had waited just one more day, I wouldn't of known I was pg, just would of thought I had a long cycle. With my last pg, I got a BFP at 10 dpo, but had a long cycle so my OB wanted my to get a sono to date the pg. The sono kept showing that the pg wasn't as far along as she thought it should be, so I kept getting my HcG levels checked every other day and repeat sonos until finally at 8 wks she determined that it was a blighted ovum (stopped growing at 5 wks.) It was an emotional rollercoaster to go thru all that testing and uncertainty.
The easiest pg I had was with my second son. I had just gotten my pp cycle back, when DS 1 was 9 months old, and was still exclusively bfing. I had 3 regular cycles, then a very light 2 day cycle. When the next cycle was late & I was feeling a little crummy it dawned on me to test. BFP! When I went for my first OB appt, he wanted to date via sono & found out I was 8 wks along. It really made the first trimester go by quickly! That child was born 3 wks early, so it felt like I was only pg for 6 months.
I am going to take things slow with this pg. I don't plan on letting my OB know until I am 7 or 8 wks along.
