We lost our little wing man Hayden on 18th August 2012. He passed away on day 5 after a very traumatic 'botched' csection delivery at 29 weeks. My waters broke due to gbs infection in my placenta.

On Tuesday I felt weird and decided to do a pregnancy test thinking that I was being silly and that it would of course be negative. But OMG it was positive.

Now I am completely freaking out for so many different reasons but the main reason is that my boobs are not sore at all and usually sore boobs are my first pregnancy symptom.

My husband thinks that my boobs are just confused because I pumped milk for a month after Hayden but I'm worried that something isn't right. I'm only 4 weeks and 5 days today so it's very early days.

My csection scar is still hurting and I'm worried it's way too soon.

Anyone else had a similar experience?

I agree with your husband. My boobs only hurt when pregnant with my first son. They certainly gave me no indication I was pregnant with my other children. For my third child I had zero idea I was pregnant at all until I did a test by chance - I was already at least 6 weeks by then and had no symptoms whatsoever.

I'm really sorry about Hayden. I can only imagine how anxious you must be feeling.
