hi all, I've just found out in the last couple of days that I'm pregnant. My af is not due until Wednesday but I've had two strong + on Hpt. This means though that I am less than 4 weeks based on my lmp. Next week I'm going away with family so lots of dining out, theme parks, etc. Now I can easily get around the no alcohol thing but having spent the last few months vocalising what a thrill seeker I am and how I'll be first in the queue I'm not sure how to backtrack without it being obvious that I'm pregnant. Really dont want to tell anyone at this ridicolously early stage. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this or had any thoughts on what to avoid and what to not worry to much about at this stage. Part of me keeps thinking that most women at 4-5 weeks would only just be becoming aware of missing a period so there's probably many women doing far more oblivious to the fact that they're pregnant but now I know I'm torn

That's a tricky one:/ the trouble is all rides say not to go on whilst pg ,but like you say had you not of known you would have just got on with it!! I would say be very cautious and go on ones that aren't to bad but avoid roller coasters and rides that turn your stomach!! It's a personal choice really only you can decide. All I can suggest is say you've got a stomach bug or a really bad headache and gonna sit out some rides, good luck x

Im so torn, I keep thinking I'm on going be 3 days late when I travel. Im literally overwhelmed by it! One minute I'm thinking that this pregnancy is so new, and that my bundle of cells that is hopefully multiplying is way done in my pelvis and I've met an awful lot of women that have miscarried despite taking ever single precaution they possibly could...nature just has other ideas so maybe I should carry on as I would have. But then the next second Im like I don't know if I could get it out of my head that if something happens was it coz of this stupid holiday! I sound like it's all about me missing out, it's not id happily enjoy the wonder of being able to think not for me I'm carrying a precious load. my problem is I really, really don't want my family, my other children to know now and my family is the type Uve only got to say Uve got a stomach bug or u don't want a drink and they're like 'are u?'. I could cry....lots x

I don't think the rides would harm the baby to be honest so long as there is no pressure on your tummy:) I'd go on a few then maybe say you've got a headache and gonna sit a few out?! The odd glass of wine would through them off the scent!! Again within reason it will do you or baby no harm. A miscarriage occurs if something is wrong with embedding or the foetus it would be nothing to do with your lifestyle choices! I've had 4 mcs and I don't blame myself or anything I have done just nature. Don't get upset I'm sure it will work out ok:) x

Thank u and I'm sorry about ur losses and appreciate u sharing ur experiences. It's so strange having to really hide this one. My others we've never seemed to have the spotlight on us so soon so we've just told people coz i was a number of weeks by the time it was an issue! This time I've got a teenage daughter who's randomly decided to take a specific interest in my periods so I've got to fake one this week! Lol I'm probably gonna go with I've hurt my back in work so I don't want to jar it and hope they buy it!
