It was an amazing feeling that almost compared to the day my little one was born.
  • Joanna | Friday, 24 April 2015

  • Julie K | Friday, 24 April 2015
    Finding out a couple days before Christmas, It was the perfect Christmas gift. After a journey to fall pregnant, I was overjoyed and felt so blessed.

  • Thorun Ledger | Friday, 24 April 2015
    The moment I found out I was pregnant I felt happy for the first time in 6 months - genuinely happy! It was like the sun finally came out from behind the clouds, I didn't realise how heavy my heart was every day, even when I was "okay". I found out I was pregnant 6 months after we lost our son Kolton who was stillborn at full term. We now have his precious sister here with us, and she is healthy, perfect and so very loved. Pregnancy after loss is incredibly challenging. Back to back pregnancy, with grief and anxiety and many confusing feelings took it's toll on my body and my emotions. But I still remember as clear as anything that day I found out I was pregnant for the second time - my heart sang and my husband and I cried and cried with joy and sadness for the the baby we were carrying in my tummy and for the baby we will always carry in our heart.
  • Sinead | Friday, 24 April 2015
    I was shocked and unprepared for this. After having 4 children already (with our most recent a set of twins) we had a very busy full home. The uncertainty of another baby (or two) was daunting. But being blessed with another bundle of love is an unexpected, unplanned, Joy
  • Charmaine Hermansyah | Friday, 24 April 2015
    I was ecstatic!!! I have wanted to be a mum and have a baby my whole life but I especially wanted to be pregnant!! The moment I found out I couldn't contain my excitement and found it hard not to tell the world!!! I was getting older and thought I may never get the chance but in the span of a year I managed to get married and fall pregnant!! I still look at my darling son today who is 2.5 and sometimes I can't believe he is mine and how blessed I am that he chose me to be his mum he is the absolute LOVE of my life xxxx
  • Laurette | Friday, 24 April 2015
    disbelief and excitement at first, kept checking the line to see if it would disappear, though i know that's not the way they work . Then over-the-moon and scared at the same time!!
  • Amie | Friday, 24 April 2015
    I felt overwhelmed with the responsibility and reality of beginning a mother. I cried whenhusband my husband, but I was bout unhappy! :-)
  • Skye | Friday, 24 April 2015
    I was overjoyed. It was 6am and I woke early as I just had an inkling. I took the at home test and couldn't believe my eyes. Just 8 weeks to go and I'm so excited.
  • Lisa Booth | Friday, 24 April 2015
    Confused! Since I had just turned 40, we had struggled to conceive our other three children and certainly were not trying for a fourth. After the initial shock wore off, absolute delight at being blessed with another little miracle ??
  • Rachel | Friday, 24 April 2015
    I was overjoyed to have a little miracle growing inside of me!
  • Jane P | Friday, 24 April 2015
    I felt overwhelmed and confused as I'm 44 and was not having any more children, so I thought! Everything happens for a reason and I cannot wait to meet this glorious baby to be.. Have been through every emotion possible in the last four months and have ended up excited and very very happy.. Loving life and all its previous qwerks it throws at us x
  • Kate | Friday, 24 April 2015
    i felt pure excitement. we'd just returned from an overseas trip. on the trip we talked about how i was late and how crazy it might be if we were having a baby. but we held off on doing the test until we got home. it was mothers day when we found out, which made it even more special...
  • Carly Owen | Friday, 24 April 2015
    After two losses and two beautiful daughters, I still didn't feel like my family was complete. For two years, we tried to conceive without success, and when I turned 40 we decided to stop trying, call it a day , and start looking for a dog for our family. When I found out we were expecting, my husband and I were over the moon. We are so grateful for this chance to be blessed with another child.
  • Kate L | Friday, 24 April 2015
    Pure excitement.... And disbelief - the line was so faint I did another three tests to be sure and then one a day for the rest of week until I could see my GP!! After trying for so many months it felt too good to be true!
  • Alicia | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Disbelief, but also quite nervous, after having had a miscarriage previously and a few scares and didn't want to get too excited. It wasn't unail 12 weeks that I let myself get excited.
  • Bonita Sullivan | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Shocked, happy and in disbelief. I had been off the pill for less than 48 hours and had been told I would likely have trouble conceiving due to a family history of infertility and my own gynaecological history. My husband was away for three months which is why i stopped the pill...but I got pregnant before he left! I had to Skype him to tell him the good news.
  • Kat | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Relief, we were one step closer to having the family we dreamed of.
  • Sacha | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Unbelievable that's what I thought, I was in a bit of denial. After 4 positive home pregnancy tests and a trip to the doctor I still wasn't sure enough until I had my dating scan that showed I was 8 weeks pregnant, then I cried! Happy tears though! All of us women out there who are lucky enough to fall pregnant naturally are truly blessed. And I greatly appreciate that. The women out there who do need a bit of help there the real inspiration what they go through to create there own little miracle is truly amazing:)
  • Trudy Bird | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Nervous and excited. This is my third baby and I wasn't expecting it to happen so quickly. Bring it in
  • Jodi Whitten | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I had spent the best year of my life with my amazing boyfriend, we were celebrating the Christmas and New Year break. Being 21 years old, I was still living at home with my parents. Of course I had become quite sick during the holidays and on New Years Eve found out I was pregnant. My partner and I were extremely shocked, scared and deeply concerned about what the future would hold for us. Support from both our parents encouraged us to follow our heart and start our family together. It has been a tough learning curve, with lots of books and guidance from family and friends. Six months into my pregnancy and we're happy and more in love with our little family than ever before. We know this opportunity was given to us for a reason and we cannot wait to meet our beautiful little man.
  • Brigid | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I knew I was pregnant, I had pings of unexplainable excitement through my body. We were driving down to Newcastle to celebrate my mums 70th birthday and I wanted to give her the best present I could, the news I was pregnant. But the tests kept coming up negative. Needless to say, a week later I rang her with our wonderful news "I'm pregnant, I'm pregnant, I'm pregnant"!
  • Carla | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I felt ecstatic and extremely grateful.
  • Hana Penney | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Joy, love and a great sense of peace came over me when I found out we were expecting baby #3. I truly believe that as a women I am the full circle- within me is the power to create, nuture and transform!
  • Kendra | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I felt very happy but very scared about having a tiny baby again because I am so used to the size and 'robustness' of my 19 month old son!
  • Vicki | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Very happy and relieved, I thought it may take longer to get pregnant again following a previous miscarriage. Love my beautiful baby girl!
  • Leanne | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    We couldn't believe it. After three gorgeous boys a little girl is on the way. We still can't believe it. She's due 5/5/15 my hubbies birthday. He's so excited. Xx
  • Jessica | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    When I found out it was over the phone by my doctor, my heart was beating fast & I was short of breath cos I was so nervous to find out the news. When she actually told me I was pregnant I was absolutely ecstatic that I cried. I also felt like it was too good to be true, even though it was positive blood result I bought another pregnancy test and checked as soon as I got home. After taking hormone injections & having regular check ups for months all the hard work and waiting well and truely paid off. Now I blessed with a beautiful healthy 27month old girl. I'm now going through the process again and trying for another one. :)
  • Lexy | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I felt so incredibly blessed that me and my husband were able to create a life out of the love we share for each other. Seeing the two lines creates a moment of wonder that life will never be the same again.
  • Chloe Watts | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I was in shock! We were just about to start fertility treatment and I felt a bit off so I thought I'd do a pregnancy test just in case! My husband and I laughed hysterically for about 20 mins and it didn't sink in for a week. My fertility specialist now claims that just looking at him can get you pregnant. Our little bundle is now 8 weeks old and I'd do it all again. Bring a mum is so hard and so crazily amazing. Being a mum is all about intense experiences, from the pregnancy to the labour and all the tears, fear, fatigue, love and laughter that comes from a new baby. This is my first Mother's Day and I'm going to enjoy every minute!
  • Gem | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    After many, many negatives and getting our hopes up I started wondering if i should just wait for a pregnancy symptom to tell me a positive might be next. Sure enough as soon as I felt a slight tingling and tenderness I was so excited but nervous...and sure enough a positive! I skipped around the house in utter delight. As my husband wasn't home and I was so excited to share the news I told my little cat that we're going to have our first baby! Of course hubby found out the second he got home and there was more dancing and hugs. Yay!
  • Rachel Meares | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I was away studying and we had only tried once! i was really tired and put it down to study to when i took that test hopped in shower hopped out and there were two lines i had butterflies it was 6 am in the morning i took a photo and sent it to my husband who was 300km away he rang me straight away we were both very excited but i was disappointed we couldn't have cuddled each other and chatted about a bit more! but it is what it is and now we can wait until August !
  • Anna Markham | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Initially I was quite nervous and shocked as we have suffered a miscarriage in the past. Discovering we are pregnant again has been very exciting and I feel very blessed to be able to enjoy this amazing experience.
  • Sarah Pearston | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    After buying so many pregnancy tests that came up negotive when one finally read positive my heart pounded so fast. I trembled with excitement then the tears came and was in complete disbelief as we had been trying with no luck. I ran out to the chemist for 5 more tests just to make sure. Hardest part was feeling all these emotions and having to keep my news to myself for 2 weeks till my partner came home as I wanted to tell him in person at the airport. Longest 2 weeks of my life!! But worth it just to see his reaction.
  • Athra | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I love Queenbee best and most elegant clothes. We were married for a month and i started feelinv not my normal self i told my husband to go and buy me a test to see he didnt believe i would be he thought i was just being a drama queen he brought me the test i left it sitting in the bathroom for 1 week being nervous to even touch it, as we planned to start a family after 1-2 years. after a week i still havent gog my periods and i was still feeling funny i decided to do the test my husband was at work i saw one line i put the test down after like 5 min i looked at it again it showed another line, i repeated the test same thing i called my sister as she has 3 kids with more experiance than me she said that means your pregnant so i called my husband and coulnt wait to tell him the news, we totally changed our thinking now we are so exited i give birth in 1 month time i cant wait its the best thing of feeling becoming a mother i cant wait. Im having a Boy : )
  • Anna | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    After 2 years of unsuccessful trying, I broke my ankle 4 weeks prior stepping... Ok falling off a wall. The thought hadn't even crossed my mind that I could be pregnant when hubby came home and told me I had to test. I was shocked and excited to finally be pregnant. Thank god I had my walk boot off before morning sickness hit!
  • Bronwyn | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Shocked then relieved. I'd suffered a missed miscarriage 3 months prior, so I was shocked to find out we were pregnant after our first try since recovering. I denied myself of getting excited too early, as I didn't want to get my hopes up {i know, I was being very glass half empty}, as the previous loss had been devastating. I'm glad to say that the glass is definitely half full, with me now being 26 weeks, and feeling more and more relieved with every passing day. I've even told hubby that we can start discussing names when I reach 30 weeks, something I initially told him I didn't want to discuss until our baby gets here :)
  • Kate | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    My life's purpose had suddenly changed course and that I now had a role in shaping the world's future by birthing and raising a new being. Exhilarating but terrifying at the same time!
  • Breanna Johnson | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    I was absolutely thrilled and just couldn't wait to tell my husband!,
  • Kylie B | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    So immensely relieved and grateful. The IVF path is a tough one for many reasons and we're so very thankful we're one of the lucky ones.
  • Hayley Strong | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Disbelief that I was finally pregnant, excited, scared & nervous.
  • Sabrina | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Which time? My first: bewildered, amazed and instantly protective to my current and fifth: here we go again!!!
  • Sendi | Saturday, 25 April 2015
    Where do I begin in explaining how I felt?! After being in a 10 year abusive marriage, I plucked up enough courage to leave .. After an incident one day, I packed my car with my clothes and a few small items and left everything else behind … I went on to completely turn my life around back to my old self (pre-abuse!) and 2 years on decided to try and become a single mum by choice. Thankfully I was lucky enough to fall pregnant with twins and the moment I found out, I was overwhelmed with happiness. I was also incredibly grateful because my life could have ended up in another direction if I’d stayed married!
  • Renee W | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    I was shocked! I didnt expect those two lines to come up. But once the shock wore off i was soooo excited!!! It felt amazing to know i had a little life growing inside of me! Best feeling EVER!
  • Amy | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    So excited that our little family will be complete. This is our second pregnancy and after a difficult preterm birth and medical issues when our first was a baby and difficulties trying to conceive second time around it was so exciting to finally get a positive test result.
  • Kelly | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    It was the most exciting moment of my life so far. I felt so happy and so very lucky.
  • Sonja | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    Being the second time that I'm pregnant, I felt just as happy and excited as the first one. I was having trouble with this one trying to get pregnant and when we found out we were just over the moon, we told our little girl and the excitement she showed was priceless.
  • Cara | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    I felt like I had a little secret that I shared with just my tiny baby.
  • Renee | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    I was completely floored. I made the doctor run the test again as I'd been told I would not be able to have children. By the time it came back positive again I cried tears of disbelief, joy & nervousness at what was to come. After 20 years I now have a healthy beautiful 6 month old son. He's my world xx
  • Tegs | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    Elated and terrified in equal measure!
  • Deb Tonna | Sunday, 26 April 2015
    Mixed emotions: Relieved I got pregnant straight away after my GP stated matter-of-factly we should do it NOW because time is not on our side... Apprehensive because I don't feel fit enough to get pregnant yet (was planning to lose weight first and get fit)... But more of thankful and happy because not everyone gets this wonderful experience of motherhood.
  • Ashleigh Polito | Monday, 27 April 2015
    Shocked at first as my doctor had told me it was going to take ages for me to fall pregnant as I have POCS and had to go through ovulation induction as I hadn't had my period for 2 years (they told me it could be years and it took about 6 months once we started the ovulation induction) Once the shocked settled was over the moon! Have since found out its twins!! Feel very happy and lucky
  • Susan | Monday, 27 April 2015
    I felt elated and was overcome with butterflies in my tummy as my organisation instinct kicked in. Our little clan was about to become three and I felt an overwhelming feeling of protectedness and thoughts of what the future will bring!
  • Eliesha | Monday, 27 April 2015
    As soon as I found out I was pregnant I laughed. I laughed because I was that excited this was actually happening to me. After 6 months of trying you start to question yourself and I became angry with it all. I couldn't believe this is now all real for us. This is what life is all about.
  • Amanda | Monday, 27 April 2015
    I woke up really early the morning I decided to do a pregnancy test - it was 5am and when I realised it was a positive result I was so excited and giggled to myself. I hardly hesitated before waking my husband up to tell him the good news!
  • Kerry | Monday, 27 April 2015
    First thought was "sheesh, mum was right! That was a lot quicker than expected!"
  • Tara | Monday, 27 April 2015
    Surprised it happened so quickly and then pure excitement and then love for the little one :)
  • Amber Field | Monday, 27 April 2015
    In the words of doctor "it's not possible, surely....". After years of tests, being told that I would have problems & that I didn't ovulate 'anymore, I didn't believe it. 4 pregnancy tests & a blood test just to be sure proved the impossible. I cried. I laughed. I was so nervous, excited, scared & worried all at the same time.
  • Jessica | Monday, 27 April 2015
    I had just done the test in the bathroom and my 15 month old (who had taken almost two years to conceive) had followed me in. This was our first month of trying for our second bub and I was bowled over when the test turned positive. I felt a overwhelming sense of happiness and surprise when I found out and it was special that the little love of my life (my toddler) was with me when I found out.
  • Sarah | Monday, 27 April 2015
    Like Sarah in the bible waiting so long and wanting so much to be a mother. Then complete happiness and joy.
  • Kimberley Kells | Monday, 27 April 2015
    A wonderful surprise. My body was telling me I wasn't pregnant but something inside my heart (call it: future mothers intuition) told me I was. I'm glad I followed my heart it's been the happiest news for my husband and I and our families.
  • Sarah | Monday, 27 April 2015
    I felt a peace within.
  • Tegan carrall | Monday, 27 April 2015
    I took a home test and I kept telling myself it's wrong I can't be pregnant, the test is faulty. I cried with my husband in happiness and disbelief. The day The doctor told us I was pregnant with my baby girl is by far one of the happiest moments my life so far. It was until I got sick it became so real. My husband and my baby are the greatest achievements of my life and I cannot wait to show her and teach her about the world.
  • Tiffany | Monday, 27 April 2015
    After suffering with Stage 4 endometriosis, trying for so long, and thinking I would never be able to have children, our dreams were finally answered in January 2015. It was the happiest day of my life - I laughed, I smiled, I sobbed. There is no formula of words available in the English language that could possibly describe the joy I felt that day, and upon hearing a doctor's words of, "Congratulations, you're pregnant."
  • Sally | Monday, 27 April 2015
    Relief and contentment ... It's finally happened! Let the journey begin
  • April | Monday, 27 April 2015
    Honestly, I didn't believe it was real, I'm 5 months now & are only just feeling emotions because I'm starting to show, we have wanted this & tried for so long it just didn't feel real, I'm scared, excited, happy, & anxious at the same time, I just can't wait to hold this baby in my arms, meet it, feel it's skin & smell it so I will then know it's real & no one can ever take it away from me.
  • Florian | Monday, 27 April 2015
    Words cannot describe how happy I felt when it sunk in there were two lines on the test. I was in cloud 9 and I couldn't even say much to my husband then, words failed me as I was overwhelmed.
  • Rebecca Savill | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    Absolutely terrified and incredibly excited, all bundled into one new emotion!
  • Nicola Mitchell | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    Absolutely overjoyed! After having two horribly miscarriages in a row i felt hope again.
  • Carly | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    I was completely shocked and elated - I had just booked an appointment to see a fertility specialist, when my GP rang to let me know that the routine blood test as part of the referral had shown positive HGC levels.
  • Nadia Schilling | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    A mixture of pure excitement, anxiety and nerves all at the same time! A real blessing.
  • Serpil Cakmak Tuesday 28 April 2015 | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    Burst into tears of happiness.The best feeling you can have in your whole life:))
  • Michelle North | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    I was ecstatic and felt incredibly relieved, since I had completed an early detection pregnancy test the week before that had showed up negative. Every ounce of my being had been telling me that I was pregnant and I could already imagine my child's spark of life blazing inside me, so I was disappointed and confused that the test said I wasn't pregnant... But I stayed optimistic that it was wrong and thankfully, it was! Now I am 30 weeks and cannot wait to welcome my beautiful daughter into the world in a few short weeks xxx
  • Vic | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    Extremely happy and excited. Also very nervous about growing a tiny human :)
  • Jane Blizzard | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    it was our first month off contraceptives. Complete disbelief. Pins and needles in my eyes so that I couldn't focus on the test to see if there really was that second line. Pure joy and all-consuming warmth in every part of my body.
  • HeidiSherman | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    Oh what... Oh now... Oh bad timing... Oh well.... Better get another test just to be sure as this one is pretty old.... Oh still pregnant.... Oh.... Right then.... Actually YAAAAAAY!
  • Danielle Muscat | Tuesday, 28 April 2015
    Omg this is not real! Then super excited followed by more shock :)
  • Anna | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    I'm expecting our first child and I was extremely happy and excited when I found out, especially since it seems we got ourselves a wedding day baby! :)
  • Stacey Byrne | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    My husband and I only found out on the 24th April that we were expecting. There was a stunned silence, followed by excitement and tears.
  • Natalie | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    Overwhelmingly relieved as he is our IVF miracle and we only had one viable embryo. He must really have wanted to join us :)
  • Kelly | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    I was initially really surprised and so took 3 tests just to be sure. Once the blood test confirmed it there were too many emotions - joy, happiness, anxiety and anticipation.
  • Teya | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    I jumped up and down in pure joy and excitement in the bathroom with my toddler. I just can't wait to see her as a big sister.
  • Lisa S | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    Second time around I was shocked to find myself initially feeling uncertain and apprehensive. And I felt terrible for feeling that way. Then I looked at my beautiful 15 month old son attempting to do the Wiggerly Woo and I felt blessed to have been again given the enormous privilege of being a parent and watching a little person grow and learn.
  • Jasmine L | Wednesday, 29 April 2015
    I was a complete shock as I had already had two over the counter tests which were negative but third time round we were lucky! I felt like a new woman and that I was in for a lot more adventures with our new little family that I have always dreamed about. I was excited that I would be raising and teaching my child all I wish that I learned. My unconditional love for my child was instant.
  • Beck | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    I was a little bit stunned to be honest. The last two tests were negative and so I just thought my period was late. We had been trying for a while and so they say...when you least expect it it will happen and so it did........
  • Alice | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    Grateful and blessed to begin the journey of motherhood!
  • Alison | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    We'd been hoping and wanting it for a while, so definitely excited but still with a bit of disbelief.
  • Amanda | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    I was thrilled, and so pleased that my little girl would be getting a sibling to share her life with.
  • Megan | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    Excited and relieved that after all the heartache we were finally going to be parents!
  • Nadina | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    I was shocked and teary but over the moon! Didn't expect to receive such wonderful news so soon.
  • Helen | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    For my first baby, the shock and excitement that we could actually do this! Second baby, the reaction was more sedated but still excited. Third baby (who we are yet to meet!) there was a definite feeling of contentment and belief that this is 'meant to be'.
  • Meagan | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    warm and fuzzy :) it's a lovely little secret feeling for those few moments when you are the only one in the world who knows.
  • kylie bellemore | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    For my first i was honestly shocked and upset. We had just got engaged and booked our wedding so the timing was off. However when i told my partner the excitement and joy he showed, he looked like he had won the lottery, rubbed off and pushed all other concerns away. We were married 4 weeks after our beautiful was born (deposit already paid) and now due to have bub number 3 in a couple of weeks.
  • Kayla de Garis | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    I was speechless at first! We had only been trying for 1 month so i was shocked when my first test came back positive. We are so excited to be bringing a child into this world, its such an amazing feeling to be able to do such a thing. I feel so so blessed.
  • Zoey Hinton | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    For my first child we where in disbelief as we had literally only just decided to start trying, so we felt very overjoyed and fortunate to fall pregnant so fast. With my second i swear it happened on the first time also hahaha so we have decided to be very sure we are ready before trying for number three:)
  • Lian | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    I waited until my husband got home, and we both looked at the test together. I couldn't believe it, and we both just started crying and shaking - we had only been trying for three months, but it felt like a lifetime.
  • Vanessa | Thursday, 30 April 2015
    We'd just decided to start trying so I was shocked, disbelieving and a bit excited all at once as I didn't expect it to happen straight away! My hubby was already fast asleep when I did the test, so I told him the next morning and he got pretty excited pretty quickly.
  • Samantha Bellette | Friday, 1 May 2015
    I was so surprised! I had prepared myself mentally for falling pregnant to take much longer. Having convinced myself there were so many reasons I wouldn't fall pregnant. To then see the positive test I just had to keep pinching myself (and repeat the test a few times!) to convince myself it was true! Into the second trimester now and it's all very real and exciting!
  • Nicole Camilleri | Friday, 1 May 2015
    After taking many unsuccessful at home tests I was initially confused upon seeing 2 lines on the test! Then followed disbelief, shock and absolute elation!!!!
  • Dominique Bigas | Friday, 1 May 2015
    After trying for five years I was in shock and then felt extremely grateful! We now have a healthy three week old baby boy.
  • Hayley | Friday, 1 May 2015
    So excited and relieved- almost too scared to believe it was real! We had been trying and had a message left on my phone from the doctor suspecting an ectopic pregnancy after some testing I had done and he told me to go to the hospital. After a very scary and teary few hours there, we discovered I was actually just pregnant, there had just been lots of confusion over my ovulation and timing of results! It was such a relief after thinking something so terrible to hearing the best news in the world:) I went to 2 more doctors the next day just to make sure!
  • Linda Mcnae | Friday, 1 May 2015
    I was in shock after trying for so long and being pregnant for the first time in my 40s! My husband was away for work so it took some time to be able to tell him and my mum but it was a surreal and exciting moment !
  • Leanne | Friday, 1 May 2015
    I was working in NYC and thought I had really bad jet lag for the whole two week assignment, yet had no interest in my beloved coffee to lift me from my sleepy fog. On the flight home I slept uninterrupted for eight hours, waking to an insatiable hunger that had me irrationally warn the poor flight attendants something bad was going to happen if I didn't get a meal! (Think Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids and you get the idea!) Then the 'travel sickness' started, and it just didn't stop. My husband insisted on a pregnancy test and we were thrilled to learn there was a reason behind my crazy sleeping and even crazier outburst, and that we had our first 'impossible' baby to look forward to. I should add, I once accidentally poisoned the cat (thankfully he lived and is rubbing around my ankles as we speak), so fear about caring for a human may have crept in there too! We're now excitedly hoping for a Mother's Day delivery!
  • Karen | Friday, 1 May 2015
    Its hard to identify one feeling as when I found out I was having my first after 3 years of trying I was surprised, excited, emotional, shocked, over the moon, teary, ecstatic, elated, amazed, nervous, shaken, stunned, overjoyed, flabbergasted! - all these and so many more rolled into one! No one can every prepare you for the feeling of finding out you are growing a tiny human!
  • Lillian | Friday, 1 May 2015
    As he will be my first, I was equally terrified and excited. I just had a feeling, so I did a test without saying anything to my husband and it was positive. The best part though, was seeing my husbands face when I passed him the test and he realised what it meant. His smile and eyes welling up, was the sweetest moment I've had with him apart from when we said our vows. Now, I can't wait to see him when we meet our little man in August.
  • Elizabeth | Friday, 1 May 2015
    Astounded to finally see a positive result- it took a while but the relief and elation that ran through my body was amazing, and then to tell hubby and see his face (disbelief and amazement) was such a precious moment, one I will cherish forever. Such a beautiful way to start our pregnancy journey xox
  • Kirstie | Friday, 1 May 2015
    Surprised that it happened so quickly. I waited 2 days and done a few more tests before telling my husband as I was in disbelief. After telling my husband his face was priceless, even having the nerve commenting how moody I had been lately! It all became a wonderful reality that we'll be bringing a beautiful baby into the world that is a creation of me and my husband.
  • Jen | Saturday, 2 May 2015
    Fourth pregnancy, unplanned and just turned 40...to see the two lines on the stick was the biggest shock and a roller coaster of emotions. It started out as dread and despair, but over the course of the last 15 weeks, with the help of my 3 little boys, has turned into one of the most fun, exciting and biggest blessings any woman can have.
  • Lisa | Saturday, 2 May 2015
    Hunger. All of a sudden I was granted permission to eat whatever I wanted! (And the obligatory excitement, fear and disbelief, of course.)
  • Claire Ellenor | Saturday, 2 May 2015
    When I found out I was pregnant with my second,(due on 10.06.2015) I was so excited because a friend had just told me about your website: Queenbee . So I started ordering my properly sexy and stylish maternity dresses! I look and feel wow with this pregnancy. I love your dresses x
  • Nicole Schenscher | Saturday, 2 May 2015
    A combination of happy, excited and thankful but also nervous as I had had a miscarriage the first time around.
  • Wendy | Saturday, 2 May 2015
    Happy and relieved that there was a reason for the sudden bra explosion!
  • Sylvia | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    An overwhelming feeling of love for my husband and our little baby. It was the weekend of Valentine's Day this year, it was prefect and such a precious memory to have as we begin our journey as a new family.
  • samantha | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    It was strange. As I did not want to get too excited. My motto has been to take each moment as it comes without getting overly excited but being grateful for each moment as they go by.
  • Kerrie | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    When I found out I was pregnant I was in disbelief. Could it really be, that the IVF had finally worked?! After so much disappointment and several failed attempts, it took a few days for the news to sink in, to be honest.
  • Jacinta | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    I was overwelmed with excited, I was bursting to yell out to the world that we was pregnent. But I waited 3 months before telling anyone as we had 3 miscarriges.I loved every moment of being pregnant and can't wait for number 2 etc. There is no other feeling then feeling a little one grow inside of you, take form and the first kicks and hiccups were so emotionally overwelming with happiness I had to pinch myself every day to make sure that this was not a dream
  • Catherine | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    I was beyond thrilled! We tested 4 days early, so I was fully prepared for the test to be negative. My husband couldn't believe I had the control to wait 2 hours before telling my parents.
  • Sandra steers | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    Super excited I actually cried, Ive haven't ovulated on my own without assistance in 15 years so this is a miracle. had a really bad 6 months had 2 cycles of IVF the second one ended in miscarriage was devastated. Then once my body got of the miscarriage I ovulated on my own which was amazing had bam I was pregnant. So our 2015 has really turned around can wait until our little miracle arrives in December
  • christine | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    Shocked! I cried and then the excitement kicked in. Every time, which is 4 :-)
  • Felicity | Sunday, 3 May 2015
    Disbelief at first (it took nearly 2yrs), very blessed, but I was so irrational and consumed by fear that something would go wrong. So far so good and I'm now able to share our great news. I still feel so very fortunate.
  • P Hall | Monday, 4 May 2015
    Excited and nervous. Trying to keep emotions at bay until first trimester passed!
  • Lara Bohdanowicz | Monday, 4 May 2015
    Complete shock, as this is a surprise (ahem, unplanned) baby number 3! Quickly turned to delight and happy anticipation :)
  • Jessie | Monday, 4 May 2015
    The biggest smile ear to ear, overjoyed, couldn't believe it as I had been taking fertility drugs for months and just really couldn't believe it!! Didn't expect it and couldn't take the grin off my face!! An unforgettable moment and I hope to experience it again!
  • Sydney | Monday, 4 May 2015
    Super, super excited both times!!! More emotional the first than the second, but equally happy to find out with both. Can't wait to meet my little girl in September!
  • Rebecca straker | Monday, 4 May 2015
    i didn't believe it, we had wanted it for so long that when the digital pregnancy text showed a plus sign ('+') i read it as a cross ('x') thinking it was a negative reading. i waited for my husband to wake up before showing him...then the moment came, and he just laughed at me and said "oh baby, its a plus sign. your pregnant!" We had just flown into Stockholm for a much needed holiday, but now it was the cleanest holiday ever, I celebrated with a soda and cranberry!
  • Mary | Monday, 4 May 2015
    I felt excited with a sense of calm and contentment all at once. My husband and I read that test together and we're both grinning from ear to ear :-)
  • Leanne Cotte | Monday, 4 May 2015
    YOU COULD NOT WIPE THE SMILE OFF MY FACE IF YOU TRIED. We had been trying for number 2 for such a long time and it finally happened. I was doing little squeals of joy, but not too loud as I didn't want to wake up my daughter who was sleeping. Couldn't wait to share the news with my partner who was away for work. One of the best feelings ever. Currently 17 weeks pregnant. :)
  • Naomi | Monday, 4 May 2015
    The moment those two little lines appeared on the pregnancy test time stood still. I can remember that feeling to this day, that intense euphoric, joyous state, where it just doesn't quite seem real and you need to pinch yourself to make sure you aren't dreaming. All my wishes had finally come true and I was carrying a tiny little person inside of me. I still get that overwhelmingly tremendous feeling of love when I look at this precious, perfect human I have created!
  • Sarah | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    I have just done a home pregnancy test yesterday which confirms that I am pregnant! When I saw those two lines, I couldnt stop crying and ran in to show hubby. Even as I type this I have the biggest grin. We are so excited, it is the best feeling in the world
  • Toni | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    This time around, my third, I was feeling all 'I told you so'. I knew that I was pregnant and my other half did not believe me. I tested while we were on holidays in NZ and those two pink lines came up straight away! Yay!
  • Roanna McClelland | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    It felt right, and so strange and exciting and scary, all at the same time. A completely indescribable feeling!
  • Maria | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    When i first found out i was pregnant i had tears of joy, i couldn't describe how i felt because i just kept absorbing all the good thoughts, i was also making myself beautiful, i was pampering myself and i was always surrounding myself with people who are positive thinkers. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing there is a little one growing inside your body, after waiting for this miracle for months and months!
  • Sarah | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    Incredibly lucky!
  • Madeline Waterlily | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    It wasn't planned but when I started to suspect I was pregnant, I felt as if I had secretly wished for this and now it was happening, I felt blessed.
  • Karrin Chromiak | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    Very emotional, Ecstatic, over the moon and truly blessed to being carrying such precious cargo. When I saw those 2 lines on the test I didn't believe it so quickly went down the road to the little chemist and bought 4 more tests to double check and my hubby was saying yes they are fefinitely positive when we compared them to the image on the info booklet. I didn't believe the results!
  • Melanie | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    A mixture of crazy excitement and disbelief, my husband and I had been trying for 8 months, I'm my late 20's and so many of my friends conceived with in the first 3 months so I was thinking there might be something wrong with me. And when I saw the words positive I was so happy I ran out to tell my husband straight away, I think he was in a little disbelief too, he had a smile on his face, but kept fairly quite... I wonder what was going through his mind.
  • Nicole Irvine | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    We found out we were pregnant with our first baby 2 weeks after we got married... we were both terrified and then over the moon. I am now 4 months pregnant with our second child and this time when I found out my overwhelming feeling was one of absolute delight and joy. The second time was almost more special as you know what you are in for - the most amazing thing you will ever do!
  • Christine Suddock | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    Complete elation and an all consuming sense of wonderment at the prospect of becoming a mother.
  • Monique Stuart | Tuesday, 5 May 2015
    I felt ELATED the moment I found out I was pregnant! I have always wanted to have children and I was at an age where I was hoping to get pregnant as soon as possible and luckily for my husband and I, it all happened quite quickly. I have a step-daughter which I love and care for but I was hoping to have children of my own and at my 12 week scan I was not only told that I was blessed with one child but with two! My twins are now 9 months old and I cannot imagine life any other way.
  • Sharon Thompson | Wednesday, 6 May 2015
    Overwhelmed, and then over joyed. And then an enormous feeling of gratitude.
  • Bernie agoston | Wednesday, 6 May 2015
    Like the happiest day in my life. And the look on my fiancé face when I told him made me feel like the most loved woman in the world. <3
  • Melissa | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    When I first saw the positive pregnancy test my heart skipped a beat and I didn't initially believe it. That was quickly replaced by feelings of gratefulness that I could start a family, and impatience for the little guy to get bigger so I could meet him!
  • Sharon | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    The 1st time (after 3yrs...) was of pure excitement, of being on cloud nine, not believing but believing of course I'm pregnant! The 2nd time (after a miscarriage) was of uncertainty, hoping that all would be ok.. And it was ??
  • Mary | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    I was over the mum, but I was more excited to tell my husband and have it confirmed from the doctors as we have been trying for 6 years
  • Manal | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    my first thought was pure fear. I will have a 20mth old and a new baby.....what am I going to do!!!!! Lol. I'm super excited, but still super nervous.
  • Elizabeth | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    Shocked and excited simultaneously. We were very blessed to have only been trying for 2 months hence my shock at how quickly we fell pregnant. I really thought it wouldn't be positive, such a happy day!
  • Nadine Glanville | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    I was in stunned paralysed blissful shock! It was hard for me to believe. I am nearly 38 and my husband and I have been trying for a number of years now. Whilst we were still very hopeful in our 'trying' I was so used to it not happening that when I was 2 days overdue I only took the home pregnancy test to confirm I wasnt - just so I could stop thinking about it! I never thought it was going to show up positive - which it did??. I had to call my husband right away - once I got my feet and hands moving again. He was away working and was up in a boom lift at the time - thankfully he was holding on when I told him the news! Can't describe how happy and excited and lucky we feel!
  • Jemma Mcgregor | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    Very very shocked and surprised! Having a 9 month old already, the memories of a newborn were very fresh and scary still!
  • Jane Watkins | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    The moment I found out I was pregnant I felt so special and honoured. The disbelief and surreal euphoria wiped over me in a sort of outer body experience! "Is this truly happening to me!", I kept thinking. My husband and I shed tears of joy as we fell into each other's arms. To see how happy my husband was made my heart melt. I knew it would be a moment I would never forget.
  • Althea | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    The moment I found out I was pregnant, I was soooo happy! It was an answered prayer, the most beautiful blessing..
  • Felicity | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    i was shocked, happy and freaked out all at the same Time. It's been such an amazing experience and I never knew I'd love being a mum this much!
  • Jennifer | Thursday, 7 May 2015
    Relief as I thought I was just feeling run down from dealing with recent car accident, extra demands from work and trying to make the Christmas period memorable for our 2 year old. Surprise as it didn’t cross my mind that I would be pregnant as we had only recently starting trying for number 2. Excitement as it was Christmas Day and I now had the perfect present for hubby that would leave him speechless.
  • Susie Fernandez | Friday, 8 May 2015
    When I officially found out that I was pregnant I was in awe! My husband and I were worried we couldn't conceive a baby since we tried twice with ovulation tests and had cruise 3 years expecting it to just happen but on Halloween 2014 we got our blessing. That mornign my Husband was left in tears as I took 3 breaths and told him "We did it" It has been a roller-coaster from here on but loving the experience.
  • Kylie | Saturday, 9 May 2015
    I was seeing a specialist about a lump in my breast (non benign) when she asked me if there was any chance I could be pregnant. I laughed at her. When I got home I did a test just in case. It was positive. I was in total shock, then I cried with happiness.
