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.
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.
Chaotic mama to 5 plus a bonus one on the way.
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.
One happy momma to a very spirited little girl , her tough little brother , and a happy little suprise late April 2012 . Wife to an overworked and under paid husband .
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.
