Starting your own family is an incredibly exciting journey to take, but for those that are first-time parents, it can be a little bit daunting. Not know what to expect throughout your pregnancy can definitely lead to a little bit of worry and a lot of stress, especially if you haven’t had anyone close to you go through pregnancy too. To help prepare you for nine months of pregnancy, here are five things people don’t tell you about getting pregnant:
– It Can Takes Years And Years Of Trying Before You See A Positive Test
If you have been trying to get pregnant for a long time and you’re not seeing the result you want, it’s important not to get disheartened. Whilst it would be amazing for it to happen the first time, some people can try for years before they finally see that positive result on a pregnancy test. Try not to let it deter you and keep trying. If you’re concerning something is wrong, it may be best to speak to your doctor. They will be able to run tests and if you are unable to conceive, they can give you an IVF guide.
– There Is Such Thing As A False Positive
When you’re trying you will most likely take a million tests, all of which will have conflicting answers. If you do find you have a positive result, make sure you’re taking a couple of tests to be sure. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to book a doctors appointment where they will confirm the good news.
– You Will Start To Doubt Whether Or Not You’ve Got The Symptoms
When you’re trying to get pregnant you will start to doubt whether not you have got any of the symptoms, and whether or not your rests have given you the wrong results. Whilst this is normal, it’s it important not to let it panic you. If you find something that worries you, speak to your doctor and they will be able to confirm everything for you! It may just be that you’re not experiencing the same symptoms as everyone else.
– You Will Be Offered Lots Of Advice And You Definitely Don’t Need To Take All Of It
When you announce your pregnancy you will find that absolutely everyone who has ever been pregnant will try to offer you their little bit of advice. Whilst some of the tips will be absolutely incredible, you really don’t need to listen to all of them. Everyone experiences pregnancy in a different way and what may work for some, won’t work for others. Be sure to take everything you’re told with a pinch of salt – unless it’s coming from your doctor!
– It Will Be The Best And Worst Experience Of Your Life
Finally, whilst pregnancy can be uncomfortable, scary and stressful, it will also be one of the best things you ever do. Whilst you’re growing your little one you will develop a bond that no one can replicate, and it’s something you’ll cherish forever.
