I finally worked up the courage to tell my hubby that we are in the 1% of people that get pregnant with an IUD. Needless to say he is not happy and we are both kinda panicking. We only wanted 2 children and we both can't see how a 3rd will fit into our life.

We are in the 2 and done club as well, I'd imagine we'd feel the same way you and hubby do. I'm happy that you were able to tell your hubby and you both seem to be on the same page and have each other for support. You have some time to digest all of this and figure out how this is going to work. In the end, everything will work out, it always does.

I'm sorry but I am sure everything will work out just fine. Things happen for a reason.

My husband and I were not wanting children at all. We both live busy unpredictable schedules. We are animals lovers and our animals are the only "children" we wanted. I have been on birth control for 3 years and took it regularly. I have not taken anything that would have interfered with the pills effectiveness but here I am pregnant. We were both shocked and very upset. After a few days we just came to terms with it. I don't know how we are going to make this work, but I know it will happen.

Keep your head up and know that things always work out one way or another.

I hope he comes around. My hubby is not happy either. He did not want any more kids, but he knew I was still hoping for another. He refused to use any protection or get snipped. so here we are. And I feel like I can not be happy because he is in freak out mode.

I am the one in situation that is having the really hard time. After having a big long fight for a vba3s and switching doctors at 36 weeks with my last baby. I guess they needed the papers for my tubal signed 30days in advance. Which in the middle of my fight got left to the end and without the 30 days and me without a tubal. Hubby refused to get snipped. So now we are having baby number 5. I am petrified of having another c/s. I had a panic attack on the table with my last one. I wanted to go back to work. I have been nothing but mommy for the last 11 years. I wanted more out of my life than stuck in the house being a SAHM. My family and friends are all back in Ohio and Virginia a 1000 miles away and I haven't been able to get out to meet people.
Don't get me wrong I want this baby and it will be very loved, but I wanted something left of me other than being just mommy.

3Sapphires, I could have written that exact post!! He has known I will not use hormonal birth control anymore. That decision was solidified when someone I went to high school with almost died ... literally from the birth control pills. So, yeah, he's in freak-out mode, but he'll be fine in a few days, I'm sure.

I can totally understand that feeling now, but once the baby is here and you start to get in your routine wiht new baby, you won't be able to see how the third baby DIDN'T fit in your family. Hugs.

Ashley is right! Once baby arrives you both won't be able to imagine life without him or her.

I could have written your post a few months ago...I had got pregnant with an IUD as well. My Dh freaked out for several days, didnt mention it for a couple of weeks, and then started coming around after a month or so.

Unfortunately I had a missed m/c (not related to the IUD, so don't freak out!) Now here we are again.

I too got pregnant with an IUD the last time. We were panicked, terrified, upset, but after a week or so, we got used to the idea and even started to get excited. Unfortunately her heart stopped at 12 weeks, so it was crushing to lose her. We did plan on having more children, just a bit later when we were more stable, so it is a different situation from yours. I'm happy that you got to tell him, and I'm sure he will come around. ((Hugs))
