Good morning girls and congrats on your pregnancies!!!
Found out I'm pregnant 3 days ago and according to apps I'm due on 5th of May.
Currently I'm 4w2d. This is my first pregnancy and im quite stressed. So I keep testing, don't know why and all tests are strong positives. Clearblue digital today said 3-4weeks after conception which is 4-5 weeks pregnant.
However, my Amazon cheap test today was lighter than the one I did yesterday.
I'm terrified. After I found out im pregnant, 3d ago, I had cramping and brown spotting. Both stopped today.
Have an app with midwife in 3 weeks. Doctors refuse to see me from now.
Any opinions if eveetything is fine??

Hey congratulations to you too!!
I am exactly the same I must have done about 5 tests since i found out last week. Did't have any bleeding or brown stuff. I'm just waiting for a midwife appointment but i've booked a private 8 week scan for 28th September! so excited!
I worry all the time lol must be normal! xx

Hiya Navi2016, congratulations and welcome to the Due in May 17 birth club. Those early days in pregnancy can be so worrying but please try and hang in there. Also, this article might help...

Thank you very much Danielle!! Really appreciate your help!!!
I wish I was married to a midwife, or a gynecologist. Or a hospital owner.

Just had bfp's yesterday and today, clear blue says 1-2 weeks (not sure how accurate those tests actually are). I figure that takes me to May 2017.
What am i supposed to do now? I called the docs but apparently the midwife will call me or something? Do i just wait? Lol

Hi bluehawaii90 and congrats!!!
Don't know where you are located but I'm in Scotland and I just called my gp after finding out im pregnant. They booked me an appointment with the midwife in 3 weeks.
Until then they do nothing.
30/08/2016 at 14:55
I'm in England and i just filled in a midwife form and waiting for an appointment.
30/08/2016 at 15:03
Im Nottingham based. Apparently the procedure just changed on Friday (typical) and they are going to fax my details over to the midwife.
I only found out yesterday by sheer chance that i thought to do a test since it has been a few weeks and i could be late. We've been trying for the last 18 months and af is all over the place so it was really difficult to keep track of anything.
The only thing that im noticing is im a bit more impatient, ive had really sore boobs for the last week and im getting bad waves of period pains every now and then. Im assuming thats normal? This is number 1 for both of us so neither my hubby or i have a clue!
30/08/2016 at 15:10
Bluehawaii90 this is #1 for me as well so i dont know much...
From my experience I can tell you that I had this as well. I was sure my period was coming as I was getting quite intense cramps for 4 days. I also had some spotting which now is very very light and only when i wipe (sorry tmi).
I guess theses are early preggo symptoms!
30/08/2016 at 15:12
Hi Bluehawaii90, we're so glad you found us over here and congratulations again.
30/08/2016 at 18:54
Im due May 6th! So scared about it being so early but very excited. I phoned my gp and they've booked me to see MW at 10 weeks. Feels like a long wait.
30/08/2016 at 19:01
I didn't have any spotting/bleeding. I had very heavy full feeling breats that prompted me to take the test. I'm 4 weeks + 3 today.
Bluehawaii did you use FMU for clearblue? Think that helps them to be most accurate. Y then add two weeks to it so if it says 1-2 weeks you're actually 3-4.
Congratulations all on the BFPs
30/08/2016 at 19:15
I didn't actually i nipped home on my lunch break ;-D does it make a difference? I did a normal test from sainsburys this morning just to make sure i hadnt misread the 4 i did yesterday afternoon lol
30/08/2016 at 19:38
It's says in the clear blue instruction manual that for accurate weeks indicator use FMU. I'm a nerd and read the leaflet :p I've taken 4 cheap tests, one first response and one clear blue so far... Haha
