Here was my original introduction:
Kind of surprised to find myself here! But...here I am! According to LMP I should be due 10/29, but I think I ovulated a few days late, which is how I ended up in this predicament.
For a little info on myself. I am 23 (almost 24) and the bf is 26 (almost 27). We have only been together for 6-ish month, and while we are very much in love and have had some of the marriage/kids in the future talks, this was totally unplanned. I didn't even think I was pregnant--I only took the test so I WOULDN'T spend time worrying that I was knocked up. Oops ;-)
Anyways, after a lot of hard talks we decided to go through with this. We both have stable jobs, places to live (although I will be moving in with him asap), health insurance, no debt, college degrees, etc. And, almost like fate, just before finding out the big news he decided to move into a 2 bedroom apartment!
Now that we are starting to get ourselves ready, the big part will be telling our families. We think his parents will take it alright, but mine...not so much. They have some very big, hard to achieve education/career goals for me that they have poured a huge amount of money and effort into. And this baby will totally put a damper on that if not completely take it off of my radar for good. I just keep having to remind myself that I am a grown up and at this point in my life the worst my parents can do is be mad! Doesn't make it any easier though! He is telling his parents this weekend and I am am planning to tell mine next week after our first consultation with the midwife. We are kind of on a time crunch however, as we are going out to visit them at the end of the month and I want to give them plenty of time to process the news before we arrive.
So basically, I am just looking for a good support group to share the next 9 months with!
** I will now add that my EDD is 10/29 and that my name is........
