As the title says!
I think when it happens for me I'll scream, cry (happy tears!) and jump around...

Totally not how I thought. I called a friend whilst still sat on the loo in shock.

I stuck the stick in the pot. The line appeared straight away. I ignored it due to shock and walked out of the bathroom. Stood at the top of the stairs for about 2 mins. Walked back into the bathroom and said to OH "I think you better see this"
We both got hysterical sounding giggles and manic looks on our faces. Did another one. Sent him straight to tesco for a digital (or 2) after 4 postivies we hugged but then just stood there not knowing what to do. Very odd.

lucas - very shocked, started talking about prams from about 5 weeks (i was still that vvvv naive person )
william - really happy
mc1 - terrified as it was the first cycle after william died
mc 2- upset and terrified as it would have been due on williams birthday
isaac- terrified, very upset, nevous, i text mrs claus and heartnurse (didnt tell H) and then adopted the 'im just not going to mention pregnancy at all for the whole time' and i basically burried my head in the sand

#1 - I cried. I was 17, and did NOT want to be pg. I told my bf I was pg, he cried with excitement.
#2 - I cried. I wasn't with anyone, and had just ended a 2 week fling. I didn't want another baby, so it was the worst news possible. I got my head round it, then had a m/c.
#3 - My friend saw the second line before me, and said "AK, that's positive". I told her to F off, and when I saw the line, I had a "OMFG" moment, even though this baby was actually planned. We'd been trying for 6 months, which seemed like forever (even though I know it isn't, but I conceived my first during a 3 month relationship, second during a fling, so I just assumed it'd happen straight away. Spoilt, I know), so I wasn't expecting it to be pos. I called my H, told him it was a barely there line, so he went round 5 pharmacies, asking if "a line is a line, and are we pg?"

My son was a surprise, but I didn't consider any options despite only being 20 yrs old. We were thrilled, it just felt fine to be doing it. Didn't really think big-picture. Told everyone really early on.
This time... I was absolutely stunned. We planned to try but I thought it'd take ages due to age, not that it would happen first go round days after the wedding. I was super-excited, cue lot of talk of names and prams. Wanted to tell THE WHOLE WORLD, even before AF was due, but didn't. Now (almost 9 weeks) I'm happy not to tell anyone at all and have been trying to work out how long I can practically leave it!

First time we were both surprised (was planned but happened quickly) but happy.
Second time I tested on my own, then told H and we were both happy but surprised at it being quick again.
Third time we were 'not trying not to get pregnant' and when I saw the line, I swore. I then took a couple of hours to get my head round it before telling H who was equally shocked. Then we spent a hour or so wondering how I could get around not drinking when we hosted a party that night!

I only tested for a laugh as I'd had a really light AF and was pretty much dared to! I sent a pic to the MDer who dared me asking if she could see what I could! Then I did nothing. H got home and I showed him a pic of my test and he was is that what I think it is. Several tests later we emerged from tiny downstairs loo and then believed it!

First one, happy, excited, nervous anticipation
Second, shocked but happy as conceived 1st cycle. Ended in mc
Third, relieved (took longest of the three to conceive), happy but anxious like you wouldnt believe after no2 ending in mc. Amazed at the wonder that is the cbfm, as was first cycle I'd used it!

I peed, walked out of the bathroom to my H who can't have been more than 3 metres away thinking we can wait for the results together. When I got there, it already said 2-3 weeks and I burst into tears. Didn't expect that reaction as we had only been not preventing for a month. We were both in a state of shock. It didn't really sink in until a couple of weeks after.

I was shaking when I saw the second line. Not that I wasnt hoping for it, I just was shocked it happened so quickly. Then I went into the bedroom and said to h "I think I am pregnant" which woke him up. Then after the digi test we were just chuffed and excited.
02/09/2013 at 14:26
I tested after H had gone to work. Test came up positive, I just thought "huh" and went to work! We were actively trying but it was only 2nd cycle so I don't think I dared to believe it. H got home, I told him and we agreed very practically that it was probably a false +ve and we would wait two days then do a cbd. Can you say denial? It wasn't til the cbd came up +ve that we started to believe it and H just said "wow, look what we did!" It was all very surreal with much burying of heads in sand!

Mine was very 'Rachel from friends' we were trying, took a test earlier than I should have, thought it was negative, threw test in the bin. Got ready for work, went to brush my teeth before leaving for work and for some reason pulled the test back out the bin. It was well past the development time, but I could see a shadow on the test. My heart skipped a beat and I called on H. Decided it was probably a dud and went to work vowing I'd test again once I got home. Did a live test on hitched and posted a picture of the IC and clear blue tests. The IC was positive, but the clear blue wasn't. One sleepless night later and I had a positive clear blue. My mum phoned me while I was waiting on the test developing to tell me that her cat had died and my granddad was being put on the Liverpool pathways thing to help him die peacefully, so I said to her that I had some good news that might cheer her up a bit. It was all very surreal.
It will be a year on the 7th of this month since I found out I was pregnant!

could not accept it at all, didn't really believe it until my first scan, I just never thought i would fall so easily after all of my past issues!
02/09/2013 at 14:55
the 2 lines came up straight away but i put it down to developing, put it upside down on the windowsill and started the countdown!
looked again and 2 very clear lines.
Was very shocked and excited, more shocked.
then got very nervous about telling H so paced the corridor at the top of the stairs for about 10 mins thinking how long i could leave it without telling him! decided to bite the bullet!
02/09/2013 at 14:59
H and I were shocked every time, even though we were trying.

We had been trying for over a year. Every month AF was late so I had done quite a few tests! A few months before our BFP I vowed that I was going to wait at least 2 weeks after AF was due before testing. A few days before BFP H kept saying we should test as he had a 'feeling'. He picked me up from work on lunch and we went and bought a test, I POAS and came out completely elated and not really knowing what to do! I got all teary and then waited until I got home to test again. I was completely over the moon but in such a state of shock when it actually hit me that we were going to have a baby.
Turns out H's feeling was more of a physical nature as he said my boobs were huge!

Quite suprised even though we were trying. It was second cycle, but i had long ones so it was about 3.5 months after we started. I assumed H knew what he was looking for on the test, so just kind of looked at him when there was a very obvious positive line. He said 'what does that mean?', so I told him lol amd we were both v pleased but v shocked. I spent the evening not really watching trash on telly and he sat and played his guitar for about 3 hours it was only the next day we properly started talking about it amd accepting it!

Stunned silence, didn't expect it after so many negatives. Shoved the IC in front of H's face and asked if t was a line (he didn't know I was testing). Stared at it for a long time. Posted a pic on here to ask you lot. Did a CBM, grinned like a loon and then was convinced I had baby brain as I kept walking into a room forgetting why I was there. Obviously in shock, but over the moon. Followed by a test everyday for 2 weeks.
