I'm pregnant with my first baby. It was confirmed in the hospital with a positive blood test. By my calculations I should be about 6 weeks along. I am thrilled and excited and happy, but sometimes I have these weird feelings of denial. Like its to good to be true and I'm not really pregnant. I know every pregnancy is different, and maybe its because I dont have any other pregnancy symptoms besides sore breasts. My first obgyn appt is tomorrow Jan. 8, so hopefully seeing an ultrasound or sonogram wil make it real for me. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it something I should bring up to my Dr? Thanks

I think it's completely normal. I am in denial mainly because my symptoms seemed to have vanished. I am going in for my first ultrasound tomorrow (originally set for the 18th), just to put my mind at ease. Good luck with your appt! :-)

Same! I have symptoms, but they aren't as serious as I thought they would be or how all the websites and newsletters make them out to be. I have my first ultrasound in one week and I'm not even sure that will make me convinced lol

This is my third child and sometimes I feel that way too. I haven't been to the doctor yet and that's probably why I feel that way. Good luck tomorrow.

10 weeks pregnant with #4 and I don't think it's really "hit me" yet. Usually it doesn't completely until a few weeks after the baby gets here Congrats and enjoy it!
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

Totally normal. With DS it didn't really feel "real" to me until after he was born, hahahha. This time it still doesn't feel real yet either.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my siggy!
