Im new here. I have 6 kids and recently found out I am pregnant. I didnt plan on having another child. My youngest 2 are twins and they were supposed to by my last baby. I love my kids and I love being a mom but I dont want to do this again. Morning(all day) sickness, exhaustion, weight gain, labor, delivery, hemroids, varicose veins, you get the point. I just dont want to go through it all again and I am sooo worried about money.
I am feeling guilty that I feel this way. But that doesnt change how I feel. I dont live anywhere near utah and I know people are going to be judgy about it and thats hard to take when your already fat and tired and sick.
I just dont know how to make myself ok with this.

First off, welcome to the board and congratulations on your pregnancy. I live in Utah, and even here people look at big families oddly. I truly believe that God gives us what we need. I know my parents were done with my sister and then all of the sudden...there was me. It was hard. They had 6 children in 8 years and my mom had hypermesis with each of her pregnancies. It got bad enough on her that when my 4th brother was born she couldn't hold him after he was born for a couple of hours because she just didn't want him. She had no desire to become a mother again at that time. I don't tell you this to make you depressed or anything, I am saying it because I know people that have had similar experiences. Your baby will be a blessing to you, albeit a hard blessing. Only God knows why things happen the way that they do, we just have to trust Him. I hope that this pregnancy goes well for you and that you have a wonderful pregnancy, labor, delivery and new little one. It is overwhelming and no one can discount that. You have every right to feel the way that you do. Congratulations again.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

People are "judgy" about everything.

I hope you have a happy healthy nine months.

Very true! And no matter how stressful a situation may seem, in the end things always seem to find a way to work themselves out. =)

Congratulations how exciting to know that God finds you so worthy and special to bestowe this blessing apon you. I had to have an emergency hysterectomy and we can no longer have children even though that is our hearts desire so I encourage you to thank God for this miracle and appreciate every moment, even the not so pretty moments. You are in my prayers
