hello ladies. I found out on Saturday that I'm pregnant. 2 normal home tests and then on Sunday clear blue digital which told me I'm 4-5 weeks gone. Went to the doctors yesterday but he didn't confirm nor do any tests. Just told me to make an appointment with midwife for when I'm 8 weeks (I had to guess this myself)
no symptoms really apart from heartburn and slightly sore boobs!
I keep getting period like pains but have been advised by the doctor it's perfectly normal. Apart from this I don't feel pregnant, it feels too good to be true! Does anyone else feel like this? I'm so worried that I'll go for my first scan and nothing be there! X

What you describe is fairly normal. The dr refers you to the midwife who normally gets in touch at 6-8 weeks to 'book you in' & do your first blood test. You should also receive a letter in post for your dating scan.
As for symptoms, every pregnancy is different. My Eldest gave me no symptoms apart from a growing bump & fluid retention, my Youngest gave me nosebleeds & dizzy spells, so far, this one is giving me bloating & lots of gas. I don't think it ever feels real until you see them on the scan.
Congratulations & good luck for the next 9months
