They’d come to every doctor appointment and had even gone so far as to help me choose my donor, though I was technically having a baby alone—I would be a single mom by choice. Starving already, I was off to enjoy a triumphant falafel. The first thing every guy wanted to know about was my relationship with the baby daddy. I found myself endlessly explaining my choices to guys I didn’t even want to go out with anymore. He called me sneaky for not disclosing my pregnancy right away. Hands trembling, I called my parents and sister, who cried with joy. I decided that after a couple of minutes of banter, I’d tell them I was expecting. This is where I learned something crucial about life: rejection is best served with ice cream.If results are positive, the woman should contact her doctor, who may do another pregnancy test to confirm the results.
Some tests can detect the very low level that is present several days after fertilization (before a menstrual period is missed). During the first 60 days of a normal pregnancy with one fetus, the level of human chorionic gonadotropin in the blood approximately doubles about every 2 days.
These levels can be measured during the pregnancy to determine whether the pregnancy is progressing normally.
For the past two years, I've been able to maintain romantic relationships with men outside my marriage, as I'm non-monogamous though my husband is monogamous.
My husband and I were a month into trying to conceive when we I peed on that stick and got the great news that I was pregnant.
That some point for me, was right at the beginning. If you tell them at the start and they dont accept than its good you didnt invest your time. I actually told every guy at the beginning, hey im pregnant. Not gross :) Although getting pregnant while single isn't ideal, I think it definitely has a benefit over getting pregnant either unplanned/accidentally or with the assumption/hopes that the guy would stick around, because then you KNOW from day 1 that you're on your own.
