Hello,
Just thought I'd share my story. I have to say I don't feel like the brightest person in the world because in May I was late and finally did a hpt and found out I was pg. We have little ones already and I'll be 39 towards the end of the year. Anyway, it was really a shocker and we were upset at first but took it day by day. My symptoms weren't very strong though so I knew something was up and this wouldn't be viable because out of the 3 previous pg, my first ended in M/C and I had few symptoms whereas the 2 successfull pg following I had m/s and all the other fun symptoms us lucky ones get to enjoy the 1st trim,( my SIL didn't even know she was pg for 3 mos because she had no symptoms whatsoever, now has a healthy baby girl, Must be nice LOL...)

Anyway, in early June at 7 wks I m/c and it ended up being a natural m/c without a D&C. We were kind of relieved, kind of sad, and everything in between and it was enough to shake things up and wonder whether we really wanted another child or not. We figured we'd have to wait a few cycles anyway so no need to decide right away. Since after my first m/c took some time before my cycle started back up I thought it would be the same thing and I wouldn't get pg if we did any bd. It seemed like it wasn't long after the m/c completed that we bd without protection,(we were out...) so I thought it would be fine and too soon for me to get pg. I was wrong. I feel so stupid and embarrassed. I should have known better! Maybe it was a subconscious thing. After the fact before finding out I'm pg again we had decided we couldn't handle more kids. I had recovered enough emotionally and came to my "senses"
This time I am feeling symptoms pretty strongly so it may very well be viable and I have to readjust my thinking allover again.
I dread telling my mom because I had bad ppd after my second and I just don't feel like dealing with her reaction. We'll all adjust eventually and I'm more accepting of it this time around thinking it must be God's will.
I just have a lot of worries about the health of the baby, how my youngest will do, the horrible sleep deprivation, handling 3 young kids ect...
So that's my story. Sorry so long.

Honey Welcome and know things happen for a reason! We weren't prepared to have a baby either, this will be our first, and we have fought back and forth, but he is slowly coming around. I sincerely think this is a blessing from God as the month prior to me gettting pregnant I nearly died myself and through some miracle fought my way back to life after having stopped breathing and having little to no pulse...a story Ill have to get into another time.

Hang in there and know that you have oodles of support on this board!

Thanks so much. It sounds like you have an amazing story. It reminds of a story I saw on tv long ago of a woman who drowned and had a near death experience where she met her future son telling her she needed to go back so he could be born. And lo and behold after a long recovery she did get pregnant with a boy.


Thanks everyone for the support!
