my first bfp what next??

hi ladies,

im shaking as i type this thread, oh my gosh!! my first ever BFP after trying for 8 months! this is my story...

this is the first month i bought an opk and used it.. funny thing was every test strip i used showed me positive which was seven days in total, i took a hpt and got a bfn 6 dpo and just tested today (af is 2 days late) and i got a BFP!!! On the day before af was due i got a few spots of blood and af like cramps which i still have today (the cramping) but no af ever showed...
I also had extremely sore bbs ever since ovulating.

im thrilled but nervous and a little scared im relatively young but had always planned to be a younger mother as my mother was. Now i just am not sure what to do next?? I guess the doctor is the next obvious step but anything i should be doing myself??

Hey Milly, Not sure if you remember me from the TTC board or not, but I wanted to say congrats!! I would say give your doctor a call and be sure you are taking your prenatals!

Get some extra rest, drink lots of water and get on prenatal vitamins. Give your Dr. a call to set up first appointment and best wishes for a healthy pregnancy!

I agree with the pp's--call your doctor asap to set up an appointment. Other than that, make sure you take your prenatals every day, and be really good to yourself! Rest as much as you want to, drink lots of water, and try to eat as healthy as possible. Good luck!
