It's been so long since we've seen you! It's good to see you here again Olivia sounds like she's doing great, and I can't believe that Preston is already walking. Wow!! As for the pregnancy, I'd like to say congrats! Sometimes things don't happen at a good time. But remind your DH - you already have everything you need for this baby since you have one of each. Good luck and KUP!

Hi Melissa! Great to see you here! Congrats on the pregnancy. Sorry it's not the best time, but I'm sure you'll figure things out. I hope DH gets on board soon, and that he's happy. It's only been a few days, and it was a shock to him. Good luck with school! Glad to hear Olivia likes preschool.
Wow, Melissa. Well, congratulations!!! I think it's great that you are having another baby (obv from a diff POV) because I think you are such a natural Mother. Just from facebook, you do so much with your kids, you cook proper meals, you make sure Olivia goes to classes (ie dance etc).... another baby can only make your family flourish more.
I get where DH is coming from, he could've worded it better however! He's obviously just shocked and maybe scared at the thought of having to switch jobs cuz I know he's worked where he's at forever, right?
As for you, you deserve a pat on the back and should be really proud of yourself for getting yourself through school whilst having 2 little ones to look after also. I only have DD and struggle daily lol.
I am sure you and hubby will work through this and please KUP on how things go.

I luurrrrrve to lurk!
Oh my, you do have a lot on your plate. Congratulations on the pregnancy - even if the timing isn't ideal. Your DH sounds like he is being an as$hat though. First of all, why is he mad??? It's not like it's something you did to spite him. I assume he was there too when it happened, right? You didn't steal his sperm. And asking you to abort when he knows that wouldn't be an option for you is so insensitive, even if he was shocked and upset. I do hope he pulls it together and supports you properly through this.
I think it is great news, though. You were planning a 3rd anyways - just not now. So financially, you might well have a couple of years that are a bit harder than you thought, but you'll get through it, you guys will be fine, and what a blessing to have 3 kids close enough in age to grow up being close friends.
Thanks guys for all your support!!! I think he was pretty shocked...i was too! lol!!! Im still waiting for him to bring it up again...so its still kind of wierd around here....but thankfully hes at work and doesnt get home till late, so Im just loving my babies...all of them in the mean time!!! Things always fall into place financially, I just wish he could see it...its not like we have to buy anything for this one, whether its a boy or girl...oh well! Ill keep you guys posted!!! But thanks for the positive thoughts!! much appretiated!
Hang in there! Things will get better. I just recently stopped by this board....haven't checked in like forever....but I too am expecting again....unexpectantly! I am still in a fog now! I am trying to feel excited about this but it is so hard b/c I was caught off guard.
Hope it gets easier for you!
So hubby finally talked to me about it...4 days later...he is over his shock and now is able to smile about it...we're gonna get through it!! He is already thinking of names and making jokes about having twins... yay!!! now I can relax and enjoy the pregnancy...but so far being pregnant and running after two little ones doesnt seem too relaxing!!! lol!
