I know this is going to sound crazy but I'm still waiting to get my period! I'm serious! I'm not expecting a mc or anything like that. It's just everytime I go to the bathroom I wipe and look at the tissue expecting to find out I got my period! I look at my belly and think "I have gained some weight. I'm going to have to start eating better." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I know how ludicrous that sounds - seriously - I'm not crazy or anything. This pregnancy was just soooooo unexpected and I can't even fathom having 4 kids. I literally cannot picture it. It's just so weird. I'm about 10 wks and I've told a handful of people out of necessity but, for the most part, no one knows. We just don't know how to say it. FOUR kids! I said I would have 10 but dh has always stood firm (at 1, then 2, and 3 was IT<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">). Now our cup truly runneth over.<br><br>
It's going to be hard telling my mom. I've told my sister, niece, and gmother but my mom is not going to take it well. Not because she's awful but because I already have 3 kids, one with Rett Syndrome <a href="http://www.rettsyndrome.org" target="_blank">www.rettsyndrome.org</a> Most of my family lives in the same neighborhood where I grew up but I live 5 hrs. away. They already worry about how I manage although I manage just fine. They just worry, that's all. It's not always easy raising the 3 I have, managing my dds extra needs/care with a dh that works alot + travels.<br><br>
I'm not worked up about it yet just in denial<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: I truly believe every child comes to me for a reason and with a purpose. I have faith thank goodness. It's just so unbelievable that I'm going to have 4!!<br><br>
Seriously, I can't get over it.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br>

I'm expecting number four, too! I haven't been going through quite the same thing, but every once in a while it hits me: I'm going to get big, uncomfortable, sciatic, exhausted, and then push another being into the world! It's exciting but somehow not quite real yet. So that part I get.<br><br>
My closest family are 18 hours away, but hey, we can do this!

Me too #4 and I just look at myself and think No Not Really!! My family was rather kind way more then I thought. I sent one mass email and said how fragile I was about the whole thing and needed loving support or no calls. Under no circumstances do I have the ability to deal with them "dealing". My grandma just emailed me the nicest note and said God does all things for a reason and eventually I would be so blessed by this little one it will seem silly to be so upset about it now. Easier said then done! Hang in there with us! We can do this all together<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I need support as do you! Your going to be great!

Hey, I'm just pg with my 2nd and still in denial!!<br>
I think because we had such a hard time conceive my ds (i'm talking years) and for this to just happen...<br>
We haven't told anyone yet. Friends, family....they'll have to wait for Christmas!<br>
I also think because before I became pg with my son, I did dream about him but I can't figure out this child out, yet. The mystery child!<br>
And I had to have an u/s, for dating purposes but the machine wouldn't work to print out a picture. argh. (i did see a heartbeat)<br><br>
PiesandAmbrosMama--you Grandmother's note gave me a lump in my throat. Yes, to trust & trust & trust.<br><br>
Hugs to you all.<br>
(ok, back to my denial and lurkdom LOL)
