37 & pregnant!

took hpt and got bfp 3 days ago. I am very excited,but its the strangest thing because other than spitting frequently i dont have any symptoms. I was concerned so i took another test today and it still says pregnant. so i am hoping everything is fine. I wont see doctor until friday so i cant wait to go.

Hi there! I am also 37 & just found out! I am about 6 weeks gone, apart from super sore boobs I have no symptoms. I feel in limbo really before my first appt. Is this your first? It is mine. What do you mean by spitting?

I see! Funny that as I have dribbled more often than I usually do, and I very embarrassingly spat all over myself yesterday! I didn't realise it was a symptom!

lol @ dribbled. Yes the excess saliva thing can get very annoying. i feel like a spit machine, however its much better than morning sickness so i will take it! This will be my 3rd baby, how about you?

This is my first. I'm a late starter :-) the only other symptom I have is my heart rate seems to have increased by about 13bpm... Have you noticed anything like that?

i have noticed that i get short of breath easily which i dont understand happening so early on. But maybe its an age thing? But how do you know your heart rate has increased?

Thank you :-) I can actually feel it! I have a heart rate monitor on my phone too.... Gone from 62bpm resting to 78. Weird!

I installed an app. My heart rate is 80.

Yeah its a weird feeling, your heartrate will increase due to your body pumping the blood around to compensate for your little bundle. The saliva is due to the increase in blood flow, you will find you have a stuffy nose more often than not, also you may find you have more vaginal discharge also (usually a milky white colour).

But as anything during pregnancy conserns you ring a midwife or Dr for advice. Congrats to you all for your little bundles xx
