My name is Samantha, and I'm new to this forum but not new to motherhood I have a 2 and half year old little girl Jessica and a little boy Glen due this July. I hope I can connect with other mothers on here who have gone through similar things in their journeys ttc, potty training, dealing with separation, having c sections, and etc.
Anyways, a little about me and my journey that I'd like to share to see if anyone else has gone through similar events. Around 5 years ago my now (ex husband) and I were trying to conceive, the first 2 years we couldnt conceive. My ex figured there was something wrong with me, and there was nothing wrong with him because he had gotten another girl pregnant before me but she had an abortion. Finally after 3 months after the 2 year mark i found out i was pregnant. I was so happy and excited but very paranoid during my entire pregnancy. My delivery didn't go as planned and i ended up having an emergency c-section. After our daughter was born my now ex husband and i were drifting apart, and around 8 months after i delivered my daughter i found out i was pregnant again, i was surprised because how long it took us to conceive our daughter. However, that pregnancy ended up being an ectopic pregnancy and i had to have emergency surgery resulting in bad damage to my right tube. I was pretty depressed after that happened, i didnt have much support from anyone and my husband at the time pretty much shrugged it off and we drifted even farther apart. He ended up having multiple affairs and I finally had enough last summer and left and a week later he moved in the girl he was having an affair with . It was a struggle being a single mom and doing everything by myself, my ex husband refused to see his daughter and pay child support for the first 6 months. I met a wonderful man shortly after leaving my husband who has been there for my daughter and I constantly. After a couple months of being with my bf i was shocked to find out i was pregnant with my now boyfriend. I had a history of having a hard time ttc, my one tube was severely damaged, and i was taking birth control around the time we conceived. He was happy to find out we were expecting. I'm really happy at this point of my life. My son is due July and even though he wasn't planned, we're all happy.
So far this pregnancy has been night and day from my pregnancy with my daughter, I haven't had much morning sickness and i'm dealing a painful umbilical hernia.
