Hi all, my name is Heather, I am a mother to a 12yo boy, and expecting #2 at the end of March. This has been a total surprise, and I am still trying to get a grip on this really happening. I havent really shared the news with to many people, as I am nervous and scared more than I ever was with my son. I went in last week to have an ultrasound done because after confirming my pregnancy with the Dr. she wanted to see if everthing was okay due to what I thought was cyst pain that I have lived with off and on for several years. The ultrasound not only showed my baby, but also a cyst located inside my uterus, and while they seem to show little concern for it being there, it totally freaks me out. I guess its just the hormones. '
This pregnancy has been totally different than my last, or else I forgot what it was like. I am super moody, my breasts feel huge, most anything makes me queasy, and starting yesterday I have to pee every 2 hours or so, you could set a clock to me I swear, The other thing that is different is this time around, im not married, and due to all of these factors, im really nervous, I havent told my son yet as he is visiting his father out of state, and feel he should be home and in person to hear the news. Anyone else here have such a big gap? 12 years ago circumcison was exected, and breastfeeding was no where near as common as it is now, I remember being an attached momma then, and how hard it was for most people to be okay with that. I am hoping with as much time as has passed that less frowns will be seen as I entend to nurse and wear this baby just as I did the last.
