Eeep! Has this sunk in for anyone else yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 23
rajouta that's not superficial at all. Your post reminds me of last time I was pg. I had already decided I was done. I just had the rainbow baby I had wanted so much. Life was complete. So many new things were happening in other areas. I had all these plans that a pg and new baby did NOT fit into. Plus I had just completed a VERY challenging 12 weeks of P90X and was in the best shape of my life every and I wasn't going to be able to enjoy that for very long. It took me until after he was born for it to stop feeling surreal.

Then I felt bad and guilty because his pg wasn't like the others where I thought of him & of being pg every moment. I also felt bad that he was the only baby I got an epi with. Thankfully some wise mamas here helped me feel better about that. He was supposed to be my "baby" forever so I'd have time to make up for our "slow start" in the bonding department, now he may not be.

This time, I am in a much better mindset an I AM super excited even though we did not plan this baby and were TTA. I do worry about my son a little (the youngest now) but I'd rather not spend my time worrying. I know I will have to deal with those feelings sooner or later but want to set aside a time to do it not have it permeate thoughts all day every day.

Oops forgot to answer the question - yes, in some ways it's IN (much more than last time) but at the same time it's been a few days since I tested and, since I have more tests, will probably take another one just to double check. smile.gif

It's a little like twins. :) Course now that we're having another, we will have to plan to get pregnant quickly again after this one to get the same dynamic, lol.




Freelancemom,

Thank you! You don't know how much I needed to hear that.  I have been so stressed out with ds the past few months because of colic and I felt like I was staring into a black tunnel when I found out I was pregnant again. Now that the colic is starting to subside and after reading your experience, I'm starting to feel more confident about baby#3!
