Hi Ladies,

I'm Shante and I'm 25 yo. I just found out on Wednesday that I'm pregnant and it was a HUGE shock. I was not expecting the test to come out positive at all. According to my lmp I'm about 7 weeks and my due date is August 18th. What I initially thought were cold/flu symptoms last week was actually morning (ALL DAY)

Congratulations and welcome! You must be very excited to have your first! Have you thought of how you will tell your boyfriend?

Wishing you a healthy and happy pregnancy, and looking forward to getting to know you!

HI Shante, congratulations and welcome!! I am glad you found the board, i look forward to getting to know you too.

GL telling everyone - i am sure BF will be thrilled!! Are you worried about how your family will react? i know a bunch of us here are holding off telling family, myself included... i am not too concerned with people being upset with me, but i am definitely sure they will have plenty of annoying comments, lol, and i am just holding off as long as possible (it is kind of going to be fun, not telling my inlaws, and letting them figure it out as they see my belly, and watching them wonder how they can delicately ask me if i am pregnancy or just fat HAHAH - see i told you it would be fun.

anyway, good luck!!!

Thank you. :) I'm planning on just coming right out with it. LOL No special way or anything because I'm so nervous. LOL I am excited but I think I'm still kind of in shock too. I know this is going to completely revamp my life so I'm nervous about that but I trust that everything will work out.

I'm sure it will too!! After all, it's just a baby :-) and babies make the world go round!! Everyone should be happy, no matter what, IMHO. (see me pumping myself up, lol.
