I found out I was 3 weeks pregnant 2 days ago, I had most of the signs so we purchased a clear blue test which came out positive! It said 1-2 and we worked out I am around 3 and a half weeks pregnant. We did the test 4 days before my period is due (due on the 17th) but I know this is early days and I am getting scared I might still come on my period. Can anyone give me advice or relate to me?

you probably won't have your period but some women do so don't let that freak you out. Just keep calm because stress is never good for you and especially not for a baby. My mother actually had her period the 1st 2 months she was pregnant with me. Call somewhere in your area that has prenatal care so you can go ahead and schedule an appointment. Also, go ahead and purchase prenatal vitamins to keep you and the baby healthy Good luck to you!

Thankyou! I am worried it won't enter the uterus at this stage, I am doing another test on Friday to put my mind at rest but I am doing everything in my power to make sure me and baby stay strong! Is it common to lose the pregnancy at this stage as it is still early days? Or is that me over thinking?

In my opinion you are overthinking things, you probably have nothing to worry about! If the pregnancy test already said positive (you almost NEVER get a false positive test) then the egg has already been fertilized and the "deed is done" I wouldn't spend a ton of money on a lot of tests because it is still so early and the lines may come out faint which I don't want to freak you out, if anything take another Clear Blue test. I found out that I was pregnant at 4 weeks and almost thought nothing was in there because I didn't have any symptoms but I called a midwife and she said that's simply because I found out so early. That's why I said I'd go ahead and make an appointment because they'll probably test you again and when the results come back positive they'll have you fill out paperwork and come back for a pap smear (if you haven't had one in awhile) as well as some blood tests to find out what type you are.

Made me feel a lot better! I think I am just worrying to much. I have been advised to get a midwife pack nearer 5 weeks. But doing another clear blue on Friday! I am making sure I am eating and drinking and staying away from the food I am advised not to eat, also not over doing it. You've put my mind at ease a lot more, thankyou!

You're more than welcome girl, I freaked out all the way up until a week ago when I had my 1st ultrasound so I completely understand! Make sure when you get that test Friday that you also pick up some prenatal vitamins, they're very important! Personally, I take the gummy ones.

Yeah I'm taking my folic acid at the minute, going to get my vitamins and test on Friday! Just want baby to be healthy and I hope your pregnancy goes well!

Hi and sounds positive! Hcg that was detected via your pregnancy test wouldn't be there unless the developing embryo implants into the lining of your uterus. so you got that far, yippee! Just try and relax (easier said than done eh). And likewise, I had a light pinkish bleed the day after af due and again day my second af would have been due and thought it was game over but still here at 15 + weeks.

Thankyou making me feel more at ease my period is due the day after tomorrow, I think I will feel better when I pass that ... I know to expect a slight bleed but that is normal!
