Thinking back to your early pregnancy!

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? Hubby of course, then my sister.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? "Oh crap! Seriously? Already?" We just decided to try that month for #2, thinking it could happen anytime within a year and we would be fine. Not the FIRST SHOT.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? Took a picture to text to my sister and then threw it away. I don't quite understand the saving my peestick thing some women do

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? Well, my best friend in Florida was there when I peed on a stick since it was at work. The first person I actually told was DH though.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? I was in shock. I'd peed on hundreds (literally.. lol) of sticks and that was my first positive. I just assumed it was a false positive and tested about 100 more times that day! Once in sank in, I was absolutely over the moon though, mixed with the anxiety of loss, of course.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? I kept them for awhile to watch the lines progress, which was one of my first posts in this DDC! I eventually just took a picture and tossed them cause I decided it was pretty gross to keep them on my counter, haha.

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? DH...I did it first thing in the morning in our ensuite bathroom...he was still in bed

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? Super shocked, we had just started trying that cycle, I couldn't believe our good luck...then I was just waiting for something to happen since there was no way we could be so lucky. It took a while to really sink in.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? Took a picture, kept them for a a few days until confirmed by my dr and then chucked them. I only took 2 and that's because they came in a pack of 2!

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? DH by phone....I was out of town visiting family.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? Shocked. I thought I had started my AF and was so bummed my 1st cycle of Clomid failed. In actuality, it was IB. I only tested to guarantee I wasn't pregnant, bc I was started my 2nd Clomid round the next day.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? I still have it...it's in a drawer.

Shaun, closely followed by my mum and aunt who were in the house at the time.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel?
Disbelieving - we'd only been trying for 3 months and at my age I thought it would take longer. I was in a bit of a daze all day!

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test?
It's still in a plastic bag in the cupboard. I'm not sure what I'm keeping it for...lol.

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? DH. It was early in the morning and I'd just gotten home from buying the test at Walmart and I went upstairs to whisper in his ear that we were going to have another baby.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? Shocked that I was right! I'd been 99.9% sure based on my symptoms that I was pregnant but I was a bit surprised at how quickly we did it!

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? It's tucked away in my nightstand. I'm not sure what to do with it though.

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told?

DH, via text message, upon FMU. I had already told him I just knew I was pregnant days before. So I confirmed it with a test. It was a very faint positive at just 9 DPO, so I backed it up with another test. Then I snapped a pic, sent it to him, and asked what he thought. He replied back, "You're pregnant."

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel?

I was super-excited but hesitant because I had just had a loss two cycles before that, follow up by a chemical pregnancy. So I knew that the pregnancy could be fleeting. In all honesty, though, I just felt different about it. I just felt like it was going to be sticky.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test?

I kept all like 2 dozen that I took for the first few weeks. Then I trashed them all. I did turn the digi that said "pregnant" into an ornament of sorts and hung it from our Christmas tree. I took pics, and that's how I revealed the pregnancy to our parents on Christmas day, when I was exactly 6 weeks along.

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told?
DH. it was early and everyone was still in bed

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel?
happy and amused. I knew it was going to be positive despite a negative a few days before and that was our ttc 'practise month so I thought it was funny that DH would be deprived of all the trying. I worried a little due to the past but intuition has been pretty strong from the get go with this one and baby just felt ok.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test?
peed on it It went in the garbage

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? I sent a picture of the test to my best friend. The line was so faint, I didn't believe it.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? I was nervous that what I was seeing wasn't real. I was excited but didn't want to get my hopes up just yet.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? I broke it open and kept the paper part in a ziploc bag.

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? DH (I sent him a pic via text but he didn't want to believe it until the digi said "pregnant").

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? I knew it! But I was still elated and actually kinda shocked. I had trouble getting pregnant with my first and even fertility meds didn't help. This time it happened right when I was weaning my daughter and on the first try! DH didn't want to believe it could happen that easily so, again, he refused to believe until the digi read "pregnant" at 9 or 10 dpo?

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? I still have it . I still have the one from my first pregnancy too!

My bestfriend was the first to know.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel?
I was in shock & disbelief. And maybe a little denial.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test?
I actually wrapped it in saran wrap and kept it. It's sitting in a box of stuff that will eventually, I'm sure, make it into the baby stuff I'll eventually give to Taryn when she's older.

1. When you found out you were pregnant, who was the first person you told? I was in NYC for the day with a friend, she made me buy the test bc I was late and feeling sick. She was standing outside the bathroom, so she was the first to know.

2. What was your initial reaction - how did you feel? I was excited, but nervous to hear what my husband would say.

3. What did you do with your pregnancy test? Took it home and wrapped it up in a list of urologists to give to DH.
