Pregnancy

15 weeks

Mine is not a planned pregnancy. In fact, I had come to think that, much as I loved the thought of having a child of my own, this was not to be for me. I'm a teacher, and hanging out with other people's kids fed my baby hunger some - it's also quite a powerful contraceptive, as I know for sure that children are not all sweetness and light all the time! They can be noisy, frustrating and grey hair-inducing... but they are also awe-inspiring and joyous and honest.

3 months

This is my second pregnancy, the first was in august of last year, my boyfriend and I were so excitied but unfortunatley had a miscarriage on October,21st. Now we're pregnant again! Although he doesn't seem as excitied as the first time! I'm super pumped, reading books again and enjoying my changing body..

SO the more I read, trying to figure some concrete things out, like hmmm, am I pregnant? The more I find things like "I missed my period and thought I was pregnant but I had a brain tumor!" OR "I missed my period, had pregnancy symptoms, but it was just my thyroid acting up!" The more I think about it and read about it, the less likely it seems that Im pregnant and the more crazy I feel ): Makes me feel sad and crazy and isolated. I wish I either WAS or WASN'T pregnant! I don't want complications damn it!!
