Emotions During Pregnancy

Well here I am, 37, mum to a dear daughter who has just turned 10 - literally a few days after we conceived. Smile We are foster carers and have been for 5 years now, and adopted a lovely little girl who is now 4 and a half. We are fortunate to have such wonderful daughters and have a wonderful relationship with them both.


I found out yesterday that I was pregnant after going to the doctor's office for just a normal visit. I was completely surprised. I am on birth control... but it failed. I am only 19, working full time, and going to college full time. I am terrified to say the least. Luckily, I am in a great and strong relationship with a wonderful guy that is 24 years old. I know he will be there for me every step of the way... I just don't know where to begin.

So, I'm not sure if this saved the old blog I put up, since I didn't come back for quite some time after I posted, and I vaguely recall getting an email from pregnancy.org informing me of the deletion of said account due to inactivity... regardless, I'm back and I have some good news.

Today is overwhelming

Ah, how I missed the roller coaster ride of hormones that comes with pregnancy. Yesterday I couldn't have been more excited, yet today I'm a ball of stress on the verge of tears. Where are we going to get the extra money for another mouth to feed? How am I going to keep working at the veterinary hospital where chemo and x-rays are a part of my daily routine? How will I deal with a 15 month old and a newborn at the same time?

Round Two - a 6 month old and one on the way!

So I took a test last week the day my period was due and it was negative...I held out for a week and retested. Drumroll! The two pink lines appeared and catapulted us into panic mode. We have an almost-6 month old, we just moved from Connecticut to Florida, our family lives three thousand miles away and only one of us is working at the moment. After the initial shock, we started to think rationally about how in the world we're going to do this.

So my first pregnancy was when i was 15 years old and it was during my sophomore year of high school. not really my fault or anything, just put myself in a bad situation but hey couldn't change the past. but i found out my child was gonna be a boy and i was happy. when i was 16 i had him. he was due may 1st but he came 2 wks and 4 days early. it was apr. 13th 2007. he was 7lbs 6 oz and 20.5 in. long. i named him trentyn xavier. his labor/delivery was really easy, only about 5 and a half hours long and with no pain meds and vaginal, with an episiotomy. i gained about 45 pounds with it.



I took at at home pregnancy test March 3rd (actually, 10 home pregnancy test...all showed up positive in less than a minute!). I had a blood test done March 5th to confirm my pregnancy. My first ultrasound/obgyn appointment is March 25th at 9:15. I have so many different emotions going through my head right now it's hard to even sit down and concentrate long enough to write this entry!
