Anyone else in complete denial?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This baby was a surprise.  I am in total denial, still.  I don't want to tell anyone, think about how many changes we need to make before it comes.  I have not had a single thought about boy, girl, the birth, etc.  I just cut out evening wine, started taking my prenatal, made an appt with dr, and carried on, totally not thinking about it at all.  I cannot imagine telling anyone, or overhauling life for another baby. 

 

Anyone else still in denial?  How long can I keep my head in the sand? :)  And we are decidedly happy about the baby, but we just cannot process it.

wave.gif  Me!  And DH.  We were using birth control, so this was definitely a big surprise and I'm still trying to process it.  I'll admit there are times when I think about it and panic, so we're still burying our heads in the sand here.  DD2 was a birth control pill baby, DS2 was a NFP "oops" baby, and now here we are again.  blush.gif

I am very happy to be pregnant, but since this baby is a bit of surprise I am having a hard time imagining all of the changes that are about to happen. I'm not jumping up in down with excitement, but I'm not upset either. I think I'm still a little shocked and a little in denial. I just can not see myself with 3 kids yet. I was getting used to the idea that we were done. We have given away all of out baby stuff.

 

My last 2 were very planned, took awhile to conceive, so there was a lot of time to imagine the future. This time around is so different.

 

I'm not worried though. I have had enough experience to know that the closer I get to April, the more real it will be. I'm also counting on all those hormones to help me out.

 

I too have started taking a prenatal, called my midwife, started paying attention to all the little things that you do to take care of yourself.

Same situation here. :)  DD1 was a BCP baby.  She is a delightful 12 yr old now.  I went with IUD next, out of paranoia.  We now have 3 yr old DD2 and 1 yr old DD3, super planned.  Back on the pill, religious pill taker, and am pregnant again.  I don't even know what to think.
