Hi everyone,<br><br>
It looks like I'm joining you. I'm kind of in a state of shock about it.<br>
I wasn't TTC, but all of a sudden last week coffee just stopped sounding interesting to me, so I started to wonder. I had an old pregnancy test sitting around, so I used it last night, and got one line. Then, about half an hour ago, I got out the trash, and noticed that there were now two lines. I about fell over from shock.<br><br>
I am feeling a lot of anxiety about being pregnant right now. While I wanted to TTC eventually, this is early than I expected. I wanted my kids to be further apart in age than this. And I feel so unprepared. The last time I got pregnant, I had researched compulsively ahead of time, and this time I haven't done anything to prepare. I live in a new area and don't have a midwife here. And I'm not sure what to do about work -- November falls in a bad time in the school year. I hate to sit out the whole semester for that.<br><br>
I also have two previous miscarriages, and I'm nervious I'll have another.<br><br>
Oh, and apparently I was pregnant when I gave blood last week.<br><br>
Despite all my misgivings, I feel excited about this. But oh so nervous.

Welcome Hypatia! DH and I are worried about the fact that November falls in the middle of the semester as well! Are you a teacher, or a student? I'm both -- a grad student who was planning to TA next semester... so I'm really not sure what I'm going to do now! Still, I sure things will work out, despite the less than Ideal timing, and I'll be thinking very sticky thoughts for you!

Belleweather,<br><br>
I read in the other thread that you are in law school -- I was in law school when I had my first (October of my 3rd year). Now, however, I'm an adjunct instructor at a local community college.<br><br>
I would be happy to chat with you about having a baby in law school -- for me, it worked out great to have a baby then. Third year is sort of a lost year, anyway. I think that TAing with a new baby might be hard.
