Hey ladies! Congrats to you all!
Hubby and I found out we were pregnant about a week ago. This is number three for us. (wow, crazy to write that). I have a 3yo and a 15 mo. We were NOT expecting this pregnancy! That being said, I also fully knew it was possible... We had a "night of passion" if you will, where we didn't use protection (I don't use bc), and the next day I was pretty sure I ovulated. (gotta love what you can determine based on cervical fluid). So, while I was shocked to see a positive, a also wasn't... If all that makes sense!

Anyway! All this to say, I'm so blown away by my mixed emotions! I full on wanted another child. People would ask my husband and I if we planned for another baby and I would immediately say "yes!", while he would say "no". I also LOVE child birth! I am a doula and love to support women as they experience the amazing journey into motherhood. I guess I just expected to become pregnant when it was planned and my hubby was on board. Don't get me wrong, he's definitely supportive now! Ugh... It's just so surreal for some reason! I hate the first trimester for that reason. I feel and look exactly the same.

<sigh> thank you for reading my many words. I haven't really talked to anyone about my feelings. I appreciate the lended ear!

Awww...of course! My baby is a surprise too! Lots of emotions there, so I can totally relate. This board is so supportive and user friendly that I'm sure whatever you need, venting, advice, etc. you'll find what you need. Welcome!

Congrats and welcome! I'm sure it's a hard adjustment when you weren't intentionally TTC... But I'm sure once he/she gets here, all your worries & fears will go away and things will fall into place

Congrats and Welcome. I'm kinda in the same boat. Kinda. I've wanted another since my last was born and constantly bugged my dh about it. it was a very last second decision on his part and i O'd the next day. I'm excited about it, but worried at the same time.

While our lil bean wasn't a surprise...well maybe surprised it happen so quickly I can understand how you are feeling. I'm expecting number 6 and at times I wonder if I'm insaine! I can't wait to watch your lil bean grow and change over the next 9 months!

Congrats and welcome! I am somewhat in the same boat as this is #3 and I am somewhat surprised by the pg'y. I was completely in shock for #2 though so I can totally relate to the feelings your having right now.
