She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
I can't help it, I just have to share!! I'm so excited!! One of my best friends since childhood is pregnant! But her story is the best part. She's been married like 8 years and they DO NOT want kids, never have. She is so scared of pain (any kind) and she's an only child. But I'm always threatening to replace all her Birth Control Pills with little candies so she can have a little one. We've joked about this for years. Well she only has like 2 periods a year. Her periods have always been weird and all over the place. She takes the pill just in case and so every month before she starts a new pack of Birth Control Pills her doctor has her take a pregnancy test since she doesn't have regular periods...... Well on Monday she calls and she went to take her monthly pregnancy test and it came up POSITIVE right away!! She of course freaked out and went to get a blood test right away which also came back positive. She was hysterical, shocked, scared, excited, everything. Her doctor told her that her first appt would be in November at her 8 week mark. That was Monday... yesterday she bought the book "what to expect when you're expecting"... So this morning (wednesday) she said she felt fluttering in her stomach already. She freaked out and called her doctor who said let's get a sonogram so we can see if you're further along then we thought.........

She's 3 days shy of her 3rd trimester!!!! And it's a BOY!!! She had no idea!! She's put on 2lbs and the baby is 2lbs right now. So Monday she got a positive test and Wednesday she already new what she was having!!!! I'm throwing the baby shower and I'm so excited! She's really excited now!! I always knew she would be a great mom!! I can't wait!!

that is what I've always wanted!!! To find out I was pregnant and out of the 1st and 2nd tri! Congrats to your friend!

ETA: I do have to think how in the world did she have negative tests for the 6 months prior!

That's amazing! I can't help but be curious about the situation at home (not wanting kids and suddenly being that far along). I hope that it's every bit the blessing it's intended to be!

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
Man. I can't imagine. Can you imagine only "being pregnant" (knowing you were pregnant) for 12 weeks? That's a super fast pregnancy! Haha. Congratulations to her.

Awesome for your friend!

I was 22 weeks along when I found out about DS2, 14 weeks with DS1, 12 weeks with DS3, and pretty early with the girls...

Happy Mommax4 10-10-2012 07:20 PM

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
That's a pretty neat story! Congrats to your friend! :)
Did she skip the pregnancy tests for a few months? Is that why she didn't find out she was pg until later?

simplyleah87 10-10-2012 09:36 PM

Wow that's amazing! Congratulations to her :)

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
Wow, how traumatic for her! So has she been on the pill for entire pregnancy so far? Hope her baby is ok!

How exciting! Can you share how she made it so far with monthly tests that didn't show positive?? That is crazy!

Khaag55 10-10-2012 11:22 PM

If she takes "monthly" tests, how did she not know??

No i think she said she had a pregnancy test every year before the doc put her on birth control again... Just to make sure she wasnt pregnant. Wow though, awesome story! :)

Nope, she said 'every month before she started a new pack of pills'.

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
Sorry it took so long to respond! She said she took a test every single month and none came out positive until she got this last test. But I do remember seeing on that show "I didn't know I was pregnant" that some women took tests and they never came up positive. I wonder why that is? The doctor didn't really say but I don't know that she asked. She was pretty shaken up and didn't even know her due date when she left. :) She had to look back at her papers. She still hasn't been able to wrap her head around it! It's been a few days of panic and chaos. She got kind of overwhelmed with doctors, sonograms, birthing classes, choosing a hospital (she has 2 options), maternity leave and just trying to accept what's happening. I'm excited for her but feel so bad that she's so overwhelmed. It has been quite the week!!!

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
I read an article about a woman who said all her tests came back negative. Including her blood test. She knew she was pregnant regardless of what the doctors were saying so behaved accordingly. No alcohol etc. They didn't believe her until they could see a baby on US.

I don't remember if the article mentioned why she had false negatives though.

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
Wow... that is really cool!!!

Sarawithouth 10-12-2012 11:49 AM

Sometimes when you get farther along in the pregnancy, tests will come up negative. Maybe she accidentally missed a month so she was two months along when she tested the next month, and thus tested neg?

Well congrats to her and her hubby!

Computermama 10-12-2012 12:45 PM

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
Most women make more of the growth hormone than they need when pregnant so it spills into their urine. If there's no excess, then it doesn't get into the urine. A friend of mine (and my sister's sister in law - long story) was a good 5 months along before enough of the hormone was in her urine for the pee stick to read positive. She had a full on showing baby belly and the test was negative. Not sure if the same is true of blood tests, hers came back positive.

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!
 
oh my goodness!!! She has so much to plan! How scary and yet exciting for her! To know that she will start the new year, and shortly after give birth!! WOW!

Congratulations to you and your friend! I wish that would happen to me. We are TTC and I'm 7 days late but still no BFP.

Yea sounds familiar. A gal I knew said I looked like I was spreading & I disregarded 8 yrs ago & ended up half way by august with my 7.5 yr old now & found out in a sonogram gender that first ob appointment. Girl. November was my shower. I had people say things 3rd time around in a month of getting preg & I thought it was odd & found out I was. 3rd due in feb. My periods vary as well... I totally know what she's going through.

avismomma816 10-12-2012 06:24 PM

That is such an awesome story... Makes me smile bc it's really a gift from God
