I am ridiculously new to this world and i'm not even sure I have wrapped my head around it yet. I just found out on Friday. I haven't even been to the doctor yet to get the "official" word yet so i'm not even sure when my due date is. I was on the pill, then I wasn't, then I was and quite honestly I don't even remember when my last period was! I feel like that makes me a horrible person for not paying attention. Needless to say this was not planned...I have been with my bf going on six years but I can't say we are ready. Then again I can't say we are not ready. My only real problem is we live with his mom. Financially we can survive, even with a kid, but we can't afford to get out on our own. I just know later on down the line, the living with her will be a problem for me.
I don't know what to do with myself. Part of me wants to jump up and down and scream it from the roof tops but the other half is scared to death that something will happen and I will lose it. What to do....
I'm hoping to find lots of support here since i've officially worn out google!
Hello Jen, I'm Carrie. I found out Saturday morning, and I'm still kind of shocked. I also haven't been to the doc yet, but I have an appointment in a little over a week from now. I was originally going to the doc to ask about my ovarian cyst problems, but now....agghh! So exciting! I can't believe it!!! From reading your post, it seems we have a lot in common; I live with my Mom, and my BF and I were not planning this pregnancy either. So far I am the only one who knows, in my family, and I'm still nervous/anxious/excited, all of those emotions at once. Couldn't even sleep last night...but like I said, it's not just fear, but a lot of joy too.
I am here for you, feel free to talk to me if you like! I'm hoping to find support here as well, since I am sacred and happy and really, really new to this also. I'm 23, and have never been pregnant before.
Anyway, welcome! Everything will be ok. I am not that well-off financially myself, and neither is my BF...but we have love, a LOT of it...and that is going to help us survive. And you as well. We have to let ourselves be happy (I'm tearing up as I type this, because I AM so happy, but so so worried at the same time).
