Wow- miss a day around here and you could miss a lot!
Jenny01 - LOVE your pic!! Looks like the little bean has a hand near his/her mouth- how cute! Did you have that "OMG- there really IS a baby in there" reaction?
I got pregnant completely by accident. I feel a little guilty because I know people who worked so hard TTC. I was actually on the pill. Got really sick & took 10 days of antibiotics. Missed two days of the pill also during that time. Than hubby got sick right after me so we were hardly even having sex. Guess it was meant to be!
Another question: How are your husbands / partners adjusting to this first pregnancy, and becoming fathers?
Hubby is having a really, really hard time. After a couple of miscarriages in our late 20s, we decided that being parents just wasn't in the cards for us. DH initially suggested abortion. After he realized that was never gonna happen he started pushing for adoption. We've been together for 18 years and I love him more than life itself, but I basically told him that I was having and keeping this baby - with or without him. He does not want to lose me and is slowly warming up to the idea. It was such an odd fluke that I got pregnant, I can't help but feel its divine intervention and part of a bigger plan for me - especially since my sister is so horribly ill with breast cancer.
Homebirthing is not an option for me. Partly because of the Feb due date and also b/c I'll be 42 when I give birth. Hubby owns a snow plowing business that does major commercial accounts and he works 24/7 in the winter. I live in a rural area and I have this horrible fear of giving birth at home, in the middle of a snowstorm and having something go wrong. I would never forgive myself if something happened that could have been prevented/treated. Plus I worked at the local hospital for years, my mom's been there as a nurse for over 20+ years, I know everyone there. I am going to have minimal intervention and go as natural as possible. But - if something does go wrong, I want treatment immediately.
