Ever since I found out last week that I was pregnant I have been an emotional reck. I'm just not happy at all. I can't talk to the one person I really want to talk to (which is my mom). we tell eachother everything and I know shes not going to be happy at all. she made me get an abortion last time and I kind of don't want to hear things like that right now. I'm scared to have a child, I'm still in that selfish mode. Will is willing to be a Dad but I really don't think he's ready either. I was thinking about adoption but Will said obsoletely NO. so I don't know what to do. My next appointment is for 6/7/07, for bloodwork. I was 3.5 weeks this past Monday...I just don't know what to do. I'm starting to feel pregnant too, I'm sleeping so much. if I don't eat I start feeling real sick and when I do finally eat, its like eating my first meal in days. it feels so good to eat better than sex (LOL). I'm always thirsty, I have real nausea in the morning and if I don't eat. I can't hold my pee anymore its like I have a real bad bladder infection . I just feel like crap, my energy level is like so low right now. I don't feel like doing anything but sleeping and watching movies in the bed.
I know right where you are.. I am still VERY much in a selfish place in my life...
My 21st birthday is in 10 days. Guess what I'll be doing to celebrate? nothing. And it's not like I'm a lush.. I hate drinking.. I was just really looking forward to going out with all of my friends that are home for the summer from out of state colleges. Not happening now.
Not to mention that I've only held two babies in my entire life.. once each. And I haven't been NEAR a dirty diaper.. lord knows that I know less about raising a child than my pet dogs do.. hah.
But I can safely say that I'm finally getting excited.. really excited.
Don't let him talk you out of adoption. If it's what is best for you, then you have every right to consider it.
sorry to hear you're feeling so crappy, but CONGRATULATIONS!
and tbh, i dont think anyone is ever ready to have a baby, no matter how planned. its a big change to your life, no one can prepare you for it. as for being selfish, as soon as you feel the first little flutter in your belly, i promise you, any selfish feelings you had about being a mother disappear. Your whole world revolves around keeping that little baby safe, healthy and happy. i would willingly give everything i own and everyone i love if it means my little girl will be healthy and safe.
pregnancy is 9 months, thats a long time to get used to the idea and get yourself ready. When i first found out i was pregnant i had exactly the same thoughts as you. now i've less than 9 weeks to go and i can honestly say this is the best thing thats ever happened me.
i hope you stick around, the ladies here are amazing!
