Newly pregnant!

Hi! I just found out I am pregnant with my first baby (yay!). I came off birth control in September after my period and conceived right away. Has anyone else had this experience? I know doctors normally tell you to wait a cycle to get regulated, and we weren't banking on it happening so soon. I just worry about the health of the baby etc.

Feeling great so far other than some mild cramping and tiredness.

You will be fine they tell you to wait a cycle so they can date your pregnancy on your last menstrual cycle (lmp). Congratulations:)

Hi! I've experienced something similar. I'm 26 years old, I have chosen to date women for the last 8 years of my life & I never attempted getting pregnant. My partner(a female) & I have been together for almost 7 years & we found a sperm donor who was a friend of mine to donate sperm so that we can have our first child. We signed agreements & completed the process w help from doctor & got the sperm placed in me. I was amazingly able to conceive on the 1st round of placement. I never even took one treatment of fertility drugs or boosting agents. I was amazed & happy thst I was able to conceive so quickly. I am now, 9 weeks pregnant, my baby's  healthy & it's heartbeat is stronger than ever! I'm sure it's just a sign that you're very fertile. :) congratulations!
