Both sets are b/g, both sets are completely spontaneous and both times I did not "realize" I was pg until about 6 weeks along. I had the "stomach flu" that just wouldn't go away???? :LOL
I'll tell you that when I found out -- well, I took a pg test on a thurs night and Friday morning called my ob and INSISTED on an u/s. Thankfully I got one that day. But, I guess deep down I sort of "knew"??? kwim??? It was still a shock to see those two little black circles again though.
I couldn't speak about it through the weekend. I didn't cry... but I felt every emotion you possibly could. I was scared, angry, overwhelmed, thrilled, depressed and elated all at the same time.
My first set are 3 1/2 years old. They were born 7/14 and my due date is 7/12. Hows THAT for timing???
I would say it took me until at least 17 weeks along to not be feeling all of those emotions at the same time, every day, all day long. Oh, and the severe m/s and fatigue did nothing to put me in a better mood.
But, seeing them at my 20 week u/s and now that I'm feeling them kick every day, all day... I'm beginning to get excited you know??
We still don't know how we're going to "do it". But, we didn't the first time either and everything worked out perfectly. I have faith that it will this time too. So, in some respects, I stress LESS about things that are out of my control than I did last time.
One thing for sure: DH is getting fixed as soon as these babies are born. No questions asked. Last time I was pg, even after, people would say, "oh you've got a boy and a girl... you MUST be done, right?". Well, I knew I wasn't done... but I figured ONE baby next time, if I ever did get pg again. We weren't trying, but not preventing either... but I don't have regular periods at all. So, "charting" isn't an option for me.
Now, I know, without a doubt, that this is the last time I will ever be pg -- and I'm totally fine with it, lol.
