Hi Everyone,
I took my test and found out we are expecting baby #3. I am fairly low-stress about pregnancy, even though I am technically *high-risk* due to my own medical issues. I have a DS who just turned 3 today and a DD who is nearing 17 months.

What I feel I need most is for someone to simply be excited for me. We only just called my in-laws and they were so unbelievably low-key it completely killed the urge to tell my own parents so I haven't done so. It seems as though we've had two babies in a row, the third isn't quite as special or exciting. I remember the unbelievably marked difference in people's reactions between the birth of our 1st and 2nd babies, it makes me wonder how much more does it diminish with the 3rd?

Well I am excited for you

My MIL and a couple close friends are the only ones who have acted really excited for me. I haven't told the general public yet because the last reactions that I recieved were mostly... Your pregnant AGAIN!??! ones..

But I decided I could care a less about who is excited for me or not, Honestly my own dh isn't excited. But I sure am

lil_stinkyfeet and leigh09-I completely understand what you are both talking about. I have noticed the same thing from people I tell about my pregnancies. The first and second are pretty exciting, but once the third pregnancy comes people don't seem to be excited for you at all. They say stupid things like, "Don't you have cable TV?" or "Why don't you turn on the heater?". I know they are kidding but it can douse you own excitement. I just tell very few people anymore. I don't like being told I'm crazy for having so many children. I love them and they are precious to me and so many of the same people tell me how well behaved and wonderful my children are, so why wouldn't they want me to put another fabulous person into the world? I'm excited for any woman pregnant who is excited and happy about it herself!

So CONGRATULATIONS ladies!!!!!! I'm excited for you!!!!!

firewoman, lil_stinkyfeet, and leigh09: I feel the same way. We told my parents on Sunday night and they were so lukewarm about it. My mom just wanted to ask questions about if I am on any waiting lists for childcare yet, and how much maternity leave I'll have. We haven't had a baby in a while, our sons are 8 and 5, and I'm really excited to have another baby. I think our friends will be excited for us when we tell them, but our family just isn't...DH isn't exactly thrilled either. It took 2 years of near constant pleading to get him to "consent" (not exactly the same as agreeing) that we could try for another. One of the reasons MDC has been so great for me is that I get to be "virtually" surrounded by women who are all excited about having kids, no matter how many we have.

The funny thing is, we live in Utah, which is renown for it's large families, but since we aren't of the "dominant culture" it's a totally different perception amongst our groups--like 3 kids is a real stretch. At any rate, I'm excited for all of us! : It's a good thing we have each other.

Hello everyone!

I am Meag, just got a positive pee test yesterday and a confirmed blood test today!! So excited to be pregnant with our second baby!!!!! My oldest just turned 2...I actually found out on her birthday. I am so newly pregnant that I don't even know my due date yet (not exactly sure when this occurred as we've been really busy with our newly bought house and I hadn't been paying any attention). But if I had to guess, it would be around Oct. 20th.

I'm so excited to get to know you all and experience this wonderful time with you! I had a wonderful pregnancy the first time around, but I didn't know about Mothering (or my DDC) until my sixth month!! So, I missed out on a lot. Looking forward to interacting more in this DDC!

*Meag* SAHM to two girls 6 & 3 and our new little boy!! namaste.gif

Thank you ladies for your congratulations. It makes me smile to know others are excited for more babies to be coming into the world

preggymeaggy - i found out this pregnancy on my oldest's third birthday. i also have no idea my due date since i don't chart or have regular cycles. with my last two children i got a rough estimate until i had my 1st trimester ultrasound. i'm figuring i'm also due somewhere in the end of october and am only a few weeks pregnant.

I am excited for you too! Yippee a baby! That is AWESOME!:::

Why are others less excited when it is the 2nd, 3rd or 4th? My DH isn't excited either - doesn't even talk about it. If i mention I feel sick or anything he just shrugs his shoulders : I'm hoping he will come around once i get into the 2nd trimester and get my first US in March but I am not convinced.

I haven't told my family yet as I know the reaction I will get. My mum worries about us living so far away from anyone and not having help ( we live in the bush). But, it's so demoralizing when you are greeted with a lukewarm reaction compared to the first pg. * sigh*. It's a pretty lonely road. At least DD, my dogs and fish seem to be happy for me

Hi Everyone!

I've been here for about a week, but am just now jumping in here! Didn't want someone to see me hear before I got to tell a few key people.

My son is 14 m.o. and will be a couple months shy of 2 when baby is born. I am excited but pretty nervous too. Nervous about nursing especially. And work. I work full time and have been unable to sleep the last few days trying to figure out what to do after baby's born. I already have a hard time finding childcare for my ds. Yikes! (I am married and DP is employed, so I do have some wiggle room and don't "have" to work full time. Props to you single mamas out there!)

I really loved my DDC last pregnancy. It was such a help to have so many caring, helpful mamas who were going through the same thing--and who introduced me to a lot of things I hadn't ever heard of! I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

Hi all- I am excited to be here! I am pregnant with my 4th, and haven't told anyone except dh in real life. I love mdc, and had an account a while back but forgot my password so decided to start over again.

I am not looking forward to telling friends and family. My sister and sil only have one son each, and they are going to think I am crazy for #4! I always wanted a large family, though. My 3 children right now are the bomb, and honestly I don't think adding one more will be that different. Our house is pretty full of toys and kids and laundry already!

I can totally relate to those who feel the 2nd, 3rd or 4th baby don't get the excitement from others. I had that with my 3rd. It made me really sad. Now that he is 18 months, he is the life of the party, and won't let anyone think anything less of him!

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hi Everyone!
I'm Jen, 31, and just found out on Tuesday that we are expecting our 4th around Oct 21st! We only began ttc in dec, although we have been planning to start on this little one for the past year. This happened way sooner than I thought it would!!

I am very excited, but more nervous than I have been with previous pregnancies. Not worried about the pregnancy itself, I've been blessed enough to have fabulous, easy preganancies and births, but more worried about the sanity of this decision! Maybe it is just because I'm getting older and more cautious, or maybe it is just the state of the economy freaking me out, but I am just not a confident as I have been before.

I think the whole idea of telling everyone is bringing me down also. I told my mother who is wonderful and was very excited for us (although I know she has concerns about how hard it will be to raise 4 children, she is so sweet she would never ruin the moment by bringing that up now). I know our families have our best interest in mind and to them planning to have another child seems crazy, too much work, or not financially responsible, or even not good for our other children because they won't get as much attention. Even though they oooh and awww over how wonderful our children are and how well we are raising them, they seem to forget this once the mention of having a fourth comes up.

Grrr, I know this will pass, I just hate that these concerns are taking away from the joy and it doesn't help that I am super emotional right now!

Geez! I promise I am not usually such a downer - sorry! I do feel better after writing that though!

Looking forward to getting to know you all!:

Jen, SAHM to three wild & wonderful boys , and a daughter born in October.

Hi! My name is Alyssa, this will be my second baby (DS is one year old) and third pregnancy, I lost a pregnancy in October 2006. I am planning a midwife attended homebirth and live in Austin, Texas. I am in the process of picking my midwife, interviewing at least 4. I am so excited to be pregnant again, though it wasn't exactly planned, it wasn't prevented either. We went with the flow and the flow gave us a baby!

I can't wait to meet all of you, and there are A LOT! Due October 21stish.

Mama to a sweet baby boy (01/18/08), wife to a sweet and loving husband, blogger:, swimmer:, reader of all things and future IBCLC. Waiting zenfully for my spirit baby to return!

sonomama, I can relate. I too worry about the economy & coming "Hard Times" we hear so much about. And I'm sure there are people out there that think we're crazy for having #5. In fact I asked my mom to share the news with my brother because I just didn't want to hear his response. But you know what I love to do? Surround myself (online at least) with other big family loving folks! Even the Christian ones like Above Rubies. I love the various online forums for moms of many, the many quiverfull blogs... Seriously, after reading all those for a few years now, 5 kids sounds like barely anything. And it's wonderful to be around others who sincerely congratulate each other on any & every # of baby. Once you spend a lot of time in those places also, it becomes easier to truly know that your baby is a blessing, no matter what other people say. Or at least that's been my experience.

Anyway, perhaps you already frequent all those places, if so than just ignore me.
Congratulations!!

Well, here we are -- never thought I'd be pregnant, but here I am (first time, age 30)! We are excited and thrilled, but i have come a long way -- lots of worry and anxiety before we decided to start trying, but I know this was the right choice. Always had thought we'd adopt instead! Surprisingly and thankfully only took 3 months of TTC. My EDD is Oct 10. my head is still spinning... ! It is strange to feel like "nothing" has changed but I know really everything has changed! looking forward to staying in touch with people who've been there before...

Expecting 1st 5/25/11 after topsy turvy two years of trying. Married to best guy ever. Always <3 .

I say phooey on luke-warm reactions. If it your third, fourth, or more be happy and proud to bring another loved and cared-for life into the world! DH and I are preg with our first, but we dream about having another, and possibly a third. It's a personal preference. I'll just try to teach my children to take care of the planet so that they can grow up and have a positive, instead of a negative, influence on the world and the environment. That way I can justify raising the population growth rate. I want to outnumber the people who don't care about the environment!

Dr Sears in "The Successful Child Book" says that his wifes reaction when people would scoff at her having so many children was to say, "The world NEEDS my children!" I love that. All you mommies are obviously so invested in your children, making sure they grow up loving, well rounded and attached adults. The world needs more children just like the ones you are growing. Good for all of you!!!

Hi, I'm Julie, sahm to Paul and wife of Chip. Paul is 23 months old, and still nursing a LOT. I'm a little nervous about what will happen to his nursing, as I don't think he'll understand if my milk dries up. But other than that, we are super happy to be expecting again. We had been trying for several months.

Lets see, a little about us. We live in the middle of nowhere Missouri with 2 dogs and 13 cats. My husband is a 911 operator for our county.

I'm due Oct. 27, though we'll say late fall, as I don't like a number to stick to, plus, I went way over with Paul, and kind of expect the same with this one . Our plan is for a homebirth, I'm looking forward to not having to fight with people while in such a stressed situation.

Look forward to getting to know you all over the course of the next several months.

Julie ~ homesteading, Traditional Catholic, wife to Chip, mom to Angelbaby(4-06), DS (3-07), and DD (11-09).

Hi, I just got the positive results this morning, so we're still a bit dizzy with the news.

This is my FOURTH time going down this path and I'm really excited. I've been really blessed with 3 easy pregnancy and had fairly good births so hoping this trend continues. My dd was a last-minute planned UC, not sure if we'll be planning another UC or be hiring a HB midwife this time around.

Mama to ds 11, ds 7, dd 5, dd 2, and dd born on 6/17/12!

So I think I can finally join without jinxing anything...
I'm pregnant with our second child, though this is my 4th pregnancy. We lost two before my son. I think that's part of why I chose not to test, and just let it gradually be revealed that I am pregnant - somehow it made for less anxiety because there was never a moment, just a growing sense. My estimated due date is October 19th. I'm excited for a fall baby - my son is a spring baby, and it was wonderful to hunker down in the house for a babymoon, waiting for it to get warm. With this one, we'll have a few months for a baby moon. We are planning to give birth at the local birth center, where I gave birth to my son. After all of my fears the first time, I'm really excited to give birth again! I just made my first prenatal appointment today, and I've already started making lists.
