My period is late by about two weeks. So I used a dollar store HPT tonight and it was positive within two minutes. I'm 29 and I have a history of infertility (high FSH) and one chemical pregnancy at 4.5 weeks that happened about 6 years ago. My boyfriend of 3 years and I don't use protection simply because I was told I'd never conceive naturally. Well, here I am possibly 6 weeks pregnant and I don't know what to do. I don't want to tell anyone (not even him) for fear of "jumping the gun" so to speak. We are full time students, working part time to make ends meet. We are struggling along each day. I just know that he will completely freak out when I tell him, if I don't lose the baby first. I'm very worried about miscarriage because of my history. I don't know what to do. I guess, I need to go to the doctor. I've been having intermittant, sharp pains in my lower abdomin and because I have IBS I can't tell if they're due to the *possible* baby or because of my stomach acting up from the IBS. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I came down with a nasty case of bronchitis with a fever and had to take antibiotics and codine cough syrup. I also experienced an IBS flare-up. I'm so nervous that all of that might have harmed the baby too. I'm a mess. Omg.
Thanks for reading. Any advice is very much welcome.
