Newbie to it all, due date on leap day!

Postby nurse.d.momma » Tue Jun 16, 2015 4:10 pm

I just got my first BFP yesterday (6/15/15) at 10dpo. Got a "pregnant" on a digital today at 11dpo. So excited as this was our first time ever TTC. Not really sure of what to do now... still kinda in shock.

Congratulations and welcome!

I experienced the same thing; BFP right after trying. I'd even convinced myself we'd have infertility problems and be trying forever, so I totally understand the shock. If you have not yet, call your doctor, either your regular primary care or your obstetrician/midwife if you have one. Some like to do blood tests to be sure you are indeed pregnant, while others will just schedule your first prenatal appointment for sometime in weeks 7 to 9 or so :)

Best wishes for a happy & healthy nine months!

Wow! Fast reply! Thanks so much! Planning on calling tomorrow as I had scheduled a pap smear on July 1st. Hopefully I'll be able to keep that apt... or it may be too early for an OB apt.

Oh wow, I didn't even realize you had JUST posted :) Good timing, I guess! That is usually really early for an OB appointment but every Dr is different. Yours may even ask you to come in for the pap anyway, depending on their preferences.

You might also want to head over to the February due date club (I know it still says babies due in Feb 2015 but the years listed on forum descriptions don't really seem to get changed around here very often; plenty of ladies due in February over there now ;)). I'm sure there are plenty of ladies there who would love to get to know you, and it's really nice to be going through similar things all together.
