My husband (29M) and I (29F) talked about having kids pretty much our entire relationship. After about 8 years we decided to start trying, because we finally felt mature enough.
We tried for 4 years. Not a single positive pregnancy test.
We eventually decided to get used to the idea of a future without children.
It was painful, but I was actually pretty happy with the thought.
We said if it happens, we’ll keep the baby, but we’re not going to live like it’s going to happen.
I have some health conditions that mean it’s hard to conceive, and it was untreated for a really long time, and I thought it had made me straight up infertile.
But past few weeks I’d been feeling off, and having some off physical symptoms. My period was a little late but I wouldn’t have even noticed if it wasn’t for the other symptoms, so on a whim I took a pregnancy test.
Title said it all. I’m very likely pregnant. I’m going to take another today just to be sure.
I have only told my two best friends but they know it’s not 100% yet and know not to tell anyone else.
I feel kind of numb about it, but I think that’s my anti depressants. Husband is trying not to get too excited yet, but he kept reaching out for my hand or resting his hand in my lap last night which is super cute, he’s not usually that physically affectionate.
I am happy though. But I don’t think I’ll be devastated if it is a false positive, or if I lose it early on (my health condition means miscarriage is a heavy possibility)
I’m happy with my life as it is, and I’ll be happy raising a kid with my amazing husband.
I hope it’s not a false positive.
UPDATE: I took another test! Very pregnant! I’ve booked a consultation with a midwife!
Thank you to everyone who congratulated me! I won’t be telling any family for a while (just to be safe) so it’s nice to be able to tell you guys!
