Can one get pregnant after 3 weeks?
Quaver - 25-6-2009 at 06:48
I'll be married for 3 weeks this Saturday
My period was late, so I bought a pregnancy test (Clearblue), and tested yesterday afternoon. It came back positive, but very faint. I tried another
one this morning and that came back exactly the same.
It's too early isn't it?
I heard it is easy to lose the pregnancy at this stage, so I'll keep it to myself then. I have told my mother and sister though (not hubby)
Faolan - 25-6-2009 at 06:51
It's all a matter of timing... Your next step is to see your doctor to confirm pregnancy as it still can be a (rare) false positive.
Quaver - 25-6-2009 at 06:55
I'll give it another 2 weeks...
Snowy - 25-6-2009 at 07:29
Wow Quaver, that IS quick !!! You dont waste anytime do you..congratulations to you and your Husband and I hope everything goes well for you...I will
keep my fingers crossed !
Quaver - 25-6-2009 at 07:34
Thanks, I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but am OK if it doesn't work this time.
I have really busy September/October coming up with my work, so it is going to be tough with travelling etc if I'm pregnant...
Snowy - 25-6-2009 at 07:40
Exciting times for you though !
I can feel myself getting excited for you, I just love to hear happy stories like this.
Quaver - 25-6-2009 at 07:42
Just don't tell my hubby yet

Naughty and dirty girl it seems...!
Best of luck, hope all goes well.
FWIW, Mrs D found out she pregnant after 5 weeks, though not intentionally, a scan she was due to have, showed that she was pregnant.
Hope you and Mr Q have discussed the matter though, 'cos it'll be a bit of a shock I imagine!

Tell him, I went with SWMBO to the doctor for the test with our first. It was unplanned, but still exciting. He would not want to miss out on this
first special moment in your journey together. Even if the test shows negative, it will be a good catalyst for discussions on the topic without either
party feeling pressured by the other. Even after 30 years we rarely go anywhere, or do anything, apart.
Quaver - 25-6-2009 at 13:20
We both want a child, he wants it asap, I want to conceive sometime after Nov as I have stuff planned for work in March
Giving birth in March would be problematic for me...
He knows I have important work until end of March, and he's fine with it. But we didn't use any protection because I naively thought it is difficult
to conceive, all of my friends got pregnant after a year or so, and they were younger. So it is unexpected for me.
He seem to sense something, as he keeps asking when my period is due (it passed a while ago, so I assumed it skipped), and how I look different, and
how my temperature is high all the time. Mum and Dad thought I look different too, but I don't see it. Perhaps I lost some weight

As we have the highest teenage pregnancy rates in europe, I think the answer is obvious...
Dreamweaver - 25-6-2009 at 20:03
The best time to do a pregnacy test is 1st thiing in the morning as your urine is less diluted.( you could also suprise hubby and make his day even
I believe "first response" is quite reliable after 3 weeks.
Good Luck Q I hope all goes well.

I loved being pregnant and remember the feeling very clearly - hope all goes well if you are.

LSemmens - 26-6-2009 at 13:15
Regardless of whether you are, or aren't Q. This is a very exciting time for you, you've begun a journey that should last a lifetime. Enjoy every
moment. From the observations of others that you've shared, I'd suspect that you are. Had we planned our kids around work, et al, we never would
have had any. They just happened and we learnt to deal with it. We have four who are now producing kids of their own, and I can say that they are
worth every sleepless night, and the stress of, "I didn't plan to have a baby now". Whatever.... as a child grows, if it was unplanned, don't be
afraid to express your feelings of surprise when they enquire, but, always couch it in such a way as they feel loved and wanted.
Quaver - 26-6-2009 at 23:45
I suppose that's the way of life.
Anyway, I have decided not to test again until later next week - BUT, today, hubby brought back a brochure for health screenings from his work, and
asked if I want to do it.
I said yes.
He then said have you ever had barium X-ray for stomach?
I said no, never had any screenings, but I'm all for it.
Would barium X-ray thingy harm the baby if I had one
marymary100 - 26-6-2009 at 23:51
There's a small risk to the baby apparently but normally you should talk to the radiologist before any x-ray.
Quaver - 27-6-2009 at 00:00
Thank you I suppose the risk is worth it.
scholar - 27-6-2009 at 01:24
So, the family

I agree, underlining "talk to the radiologist."
I know that sonograms are the common medical practice for looking at babies in the womb. That seems to me to be a hint that it is good to avoid
And, good for you, that you are already protective of little If.
Quaver - 27-6-2009 at 08:23
Little If is still there, I've done the check again this morning
Snowy - 27-6-2009 at 08:27
Wonderful news Quaver...well done to you !
Will you be going out shopping for baby clothes this afternoon?..
Have you told Mr.X yet?.....I bet he will be delighted, I can just picture the look on his face when you tell him..

Mr.X is away on business, he's coming back on Tuesday
marymary100 - 27-6-2009 at 12:55
You do need to ask the radiographer for advice about the test as internet advice should never take the place of a professional in any sphere.
Quaver - 27-6-2009 at 13:40
I don't want to do the screening, never done it, and it sounds scary Perhaps
I could do it next year?
scholar - 27-6-2009 at 17:59
As a point of logic--could
this really be true?
What if the internet advice is right, and the professional advice is wrong?
What if you hear professional preacher Jeremiah Wright say you should believe that AIDS was invented by the US to kill black people, and you read on
the internet that Rev. Wright's statement is false--will you follow the professional, or the internet?
I have observed there are many issues where both sides are represented on the internet, and both sides are represented in real life by professionals
who hold to those opinions.
In Quaver's case, with regard to x-rays, I expect the radiologist will give good advice, and I expect it to agree with good advice on the internet.
Since Quaver is disinclined to go, anyway, it won't make a difference. But if I got odd advice from a professional, and good advice from the
internet--the standard for decision ought always be, "What is the best advice?" Not, "Whence did the advice come?"
marymary100 - 27-6-2009 at 19:19
I don't consider preaching a profession as the preachers could hardly be classified as "disinterested" in their counsel and service to others.
Dreamweaver - 27-6-2009 at 19:33
It's always easier to sue a living human being for miss-information rather than a web page, don't you think? I would never take internet advice as

The proffesional radioligist will give the proper advice, if your pregnant the go to great lengths to shield the foetus with lead pads.

Mum and Dad kept bugging me to tell hubby, so I've emailed. Haven't heard back since. There's a time difference where he is now, so he may be

Perhaps I should have waited till he came back on Tuesday...
Was this the world's worst way of telling him what's happening?
Snowy - 28-6-2009 at 16:26
Quaver, what have you done?....Such good news should be shared face to face, not by e-mail !
You will not be able to see his reactions and it might just throw his mind off of his business trip.
The good news is he maybe that excited that he drops everything and comes straight home early.
Never mind, the deed is done and I hope he welcomes the news, he will be very excited and proud.
Good luck to the three of you and I hope you keep sharing your 9 month experience with us all on here. It will be something to look forward to.
Quaver - 28-6-2009 at 21:28
I know I know...
I don't know his password for his email, so I can't delete it.
It was only 10 mins after his email, so I thought he might still be there.
I forgot the name of his hotel, and his mobile doesn't work in that country. Dad felt uncomfortable knowing about it before hubby.
It is still only a possibility, until a doctor confirms either way
waffler - 29-6-2009 at 03:08

O Quaver, Mr. X will miss the chance to hug and kiss you immediately upon getting the good news.
On the other hand, he has a chance to pick up a celebratory gift before he next sees you.
Faolan - 29-6-2009 at 04:32
Parents, whilst they mean well, should leave things like this alone instead of 'pressuring' you. It's incidents like this that can lead to problems
News of this calibre should always be told face to face, but I can appreciate your reasons.

If he sees the email or not, everything will be alright Quaver.
Quaver - 29-6-2009 at 09:22
He's seen it, he seems pretty surprised to say the least - but, what did he expect after what he's done
Anyway, Faolan you are right, I should've waited. I'm not a kid anymore, so I should've thought it through more.
Anyway, he seems happy enough
Have to go to the docs to get it checked out to see if it is indeed a baby or not

Had a strange conversation with a mum to be today. Apparently she's six months gone but only found out about it 2 weeks ago, after a routine
examination. She's got no bump, no other obvious signs apart from feeling more lethargic than usual.
What makes it even stranger is that it must have happened on the wedding night, and it was her first time with any partner!
When she was asked to come into the surgery to get her results she was fearing the worst but when she was told that she was pregnant she fainted with
shock the poor lass.
If you're wondering why I was having a conversation about someone's pregnancy I was trying to persuade her sister to do a bump session with me!
Quaver - 30-6-2009 at 01:05
It must be something to do with the wedding. It perhaps makes women ovulate soon after the event.

SWMBO never showed with our first Child. New neighbours were surprised to find that she was pregnant, three days later, he was born! I have photos of
SWMBO standing at the top of the steps pushing her belly out as far as it would go, just to try and show some form of bump. Most unflattering!

Just in case anyone's wondering how I'm feeling now, I'll tell you.
Hubby's overjoyed, mum's overjoyed, dad's overjoyed. Me? The novelty is wearing off a bit. I can't tell anyone, I don't know if I am indeed
pregnant or not (done my 4th test though), don't know when I'm going to
which doctor etc etc...
To make things worse, I think I'm getting some sort of morning sickness. It only strikes when I'm hungry and first thing in the morning. So I have
ginger biscuits with me all the time (heard it is good for these things so bought few packs few days ago). It works within 1 - 2 minutes
Snowy - 3-7-2009 at 11:47
Of course we want to know how you are feeling Quaver, I look forward to your developments on a daily basis, its so exciting and thanks for sharing
I am glad all is OK and everyone is happy. If you are getting the morning sickness its a good bet that Little If is in there alright. I have heard of
Women that get cravings for such wierd things as pickled onions and heard of one that used to munch on a piece of coal...yes coal !!!
Let us know if you get such cravings......I bet you have been busy thinking up names, I must admit I dont like some of these modern silly ones that
Celebrities use, I always think they would get a lot of teasing when they go to school.
Anyway, I will let you get back to the ginger biscuits.......I wonder if they will become your craving?..You take care..

Morning sicknes can be a real problem, our daughter was just like you she started with it almost as soon as she had pregnancy confirmed.
If the baby arrives on time she will be here aweek today.
Nb, Highly recommended for the sickness is Arroweroot biscuits, better than ginger ones I'm told.

Done the scan (internal one), and we can see the baby sac in
the right place, but no heartbeat yet, so need to come back in 2 weeks. He said it is at around 6 weeks.
Doctor said there's 10% chance of a miscarriage at this stage which is unavoidable. Hubby took it hard
Never mind. More waiting game then.

Thats good news Quaver, at least you know you are pregnant and its confirmed, well done to the both of you !!

You and Hubby shoudn't worry too much about miscarriages, stay positive, take it easy and I am sure you will be fine.

You are likely to have more scans, so, don't forget to encourage Mr Q to come along to those. They are likely to give you a photo, too, if you
Just remember, the doctor says that 10% miscarriage, that means that 90% don't! I'd like those odds when buying a lotto ticket.
Quaver - 21-7-2009 at 12:26
Went to the doctors today, heartbeat is there, and the baby is growing OK. Perhaps it's time to tell the in-laws... ?
John_Little - 21-7-2009 at 12:30
Its a month now. So I'd say its time. I'm surprised that Mr Q has resisted so long.

Don't people normally keep it quiet for 3 months, or is that a Scottish thing?

Perhaps Quaver will send the in-laws an e-mail with the news.

Quaver - 21-7-2009 at 13:34
They don't have a PC
Quaver - 21-7-2009 at 13:35
No, I'm keeping it quiet for 3 months, but since my parents/siblings knows already, I thought we should let the in-laws know too It's up to him ofcourse.
scholar - 21-7-2009 at 13:43
That seems to me to be a powerful argument for telling them. I could certainly understand if they felt as if they were being kept
in the dark for weeks or months longer than your side of the family.
I think you are wise in leaving the final decision to Mr. X.
Snowy - 21-7-2009 at 15:30
Sorry Quaver, that news brought a tear to my eye, that is certainly good news indeed and I am so pleased for you. It must be a lovely feeling knowing
that a little life is growing inside of you and its little heart is beating...I bet you were overjoyed...well done to you..!!.....
ps, I loved your reply to Scholar over the e-mail to your in-laws, it made me laugh out loud.....and you were right, he did need slapping with a wet
fish for his comments.....

Snowy, with your sense of humor, you are a delight.
Quaver, when you have a picture of Little If for us, do post it. ;
Snowy - 21-7-2009 at 20:42
No Scholar, you are going to get a wet fish around your ear again.......A photo or scan picture is something between Quaver, Mr.X and their Families
surely...not to be splashed all over the world for all to see......I do believe you are being too nosey now, let the family Q enjoy their experience,
it is good of Quaver to tell us as much as she has done already. Dont put pressure on Quaver please, if you do, you will get a wet fish from me and
you woudn't like that I can tell you.
Take no notice Quaver, enjoy your experience...

It might be a British thing, Scholar, we happily spread the ultrasound photos of our children around for all to see, and I was going to ask for a

Snowy - 22-7-2009 at 16:28
Dont you dare Leigh or you will get a wet fish slapping too....I think the photo should be a private and personal thing for Quaver.....you woudn't
post a photo or X-ray of something that is going on inside your body would you?
Leave Mother and Child alone.
John_Little - 22-7-2009 at 17:30
But supposing Quaver wants to post pictures?
Snowy - 22-7-2009 at 18:06
Well John, that would be Quavers choice woudn't it?..At the moment I feel that Quaver is being pressured into doing something that she may not be
comfortable with. Her mind and hormones will be all over the place at the moment and I think we should respect the fact that she has shared her
experience with us without members trying to force or persuade her to do something that she might not want to do.
Do you know what I mean John?...I am not very good at explaining my feelings. I think Quaver has handled the whole situation very well but I feel that
we should let her tell/show us as much as she is comfortable with, let her go at her own pace if you like....Sorry if I appear rude but I put myself
in Quavers place and I for one would not put a photo of my unborn baby on the internet, to me, it is private and personal......
Daz - 22-7-2009 at 20:47
I put ours up here, IIRC, from the five week scan. (Actually, thinking about it, it might have been in one of those "show your desktop" threads that
seem to appear every so often, which Babs quickly caught upon!)
John_Little - 22-7-2009 at 21:18
Exactly. I'm sure you mean well, Snowy but so does everyone else here. And Quaver is not the type to be "pushed around".
She will do what she will do. Or not.
the bear - 22-7-2009 at 21:44
Snowy with out wanting to offend I think its a matter of horses for courses, someone we know was carrying twins and actually paid several £100 to have
a series of colour scan photos taken. She sent them to everybody and also put photos on face book.

No offence at all
Have a great time in London
Take lots of pics

No offence taken at all, Snowy.
I'm just surprised, that's all. You never came across as being the "bullying" type to me before.
Snowy - 23-7-2009 at 08:28
I am not a bully John, I have never been that way inclined...I think I can be a little overprotective of certain things and I was trying to protect
Quaver now that she is with child....sorry, my actions must have seemed very silly indeed.
John_Little - 23-7-2009 at 08:59
I was only joking, Snowy.
We are off to Norfolk this morning. You terrified us so much we thought we'd better get out of London before you came. :-)
How long you down for, Snowy?

Hope you have a good holiday, Snowy, just remember, we are all here for you, so, "y'all come back now, y'hear!".
Posting scans is very much a personal decision, I've nothing to hide, ('cept for bear's bus wheels - which I din't take BTW) so you can see me
hanging upside down butt naked for all I care. Others, yourself included, Snowy, feel more private about some things, that, too is fine. If we were
all the same, what a boring world this would be! I'm glad to see you standing up for Quaver, and would hope that, when it really matters you'd be
there for the rest of us, too, which I'm sure you will!
Thanks Quaver, this has become a real "Family" thread. We are now all bickering and arguing like real brothers and sisters, but we still love one

We all know that pregnancy and morning sickness go together so is your mind thinking "Hang on a minute, you are pregnant so you need to be sick in

Snowy - 5-8-2009 at 07:27
Perhaps you need something to take your mind off it, I dont know what though!
Perhaps something like hypnotherapy, acupuncture or just something like a relaxation CD. It must be worrying for you because you really need to be
keeping your food down to get the vitamins and minerals to feed Baby. Perhaps if you have a herbal shop near to you it maybe worth asking them if
there is a natural remedy for it, I woudn't trust any manufactured drugs or tablets because I believe pregnancy and childbirth should be as natural
I do feel for you though.....

For me personally, it is though I am joining in the wonderful experience alongside Quaver and I really must thank her for sharing it with us, you are
a well respected and much loved member on here Quaver and I for one cant wait for the safe arrival of your new baby.
The downside is once it safely delivered, you wont have the time to spend on the Forums as he/she will demand most of your time.
Many thanks again, you are wonderful......
LSemmens - 5-8-2009 at 14:03
Maybe you should review your mother's visit and see if you can identify what was different, to alleviate some of your symptoms. I wouldn't worry too much, here, the baby will derive all the nutrients from the mother before the
mother gets her share. The body is wonderful, that way. So, if mum is otherwise healthy, bubs will be too.

I woudn't take any notice of the report Quaver, its up to the couples involved. My own view is that if a couple decide that will never want any
children at all in their lives that is fine, it is their choice but why get married in the first place?
I also think that a married couple who want children should think about it carefully beforehand and realise that their lives will change, they may not
be able to do all the things that they had done previously because of time and money. But if a child is loved and wanted then I can see no better
reward in life. The important thing is to remember that you will be a family and all the members in that Family will want to be loved and cherished
and that includes Mum and Dad..
The family Q will be just fine...I know..!!...........
scholar - 9-8-2009 at 10:54
On the "children ruin it" topic--Were you and Mr. X to make little If the exclusive center of your lives, you would grieve for the time when each of
you were dedicated to the other and had more time.
Some psychologists suggest that Dad and Mom schedule dates, times when they go out together to enjoy each other's company. Baby If stays at home in
the care of someone you trust (if you do not have a handy relative, that may mean you pay an experienced parent for a few hours, unless you trade with
them by watching their child while they do the same on another night). You agree that If will not be in the conversation for those few hours--you
will focus on adult topics--your love for each other, your accomplishments, common interests other than If, books or jokes or music you have heard.
You spend time interacting; watching a movie together is not enough, by itself, but dinner-and-a-movie would be OK, or dancing with talk in between.
The date could be a daytime activity, if you like to view the flower gardens, or visit the zoo, or look at all the new hardware and programs at the
computer fair, or enjoy seeing all the people in costume at the Comic Book Convention. [reference to humor in Archie topic thread ]
