Unplanned and Unprepared

Well, according to my LMP (last menstrual period), I am about 8 weeks pregnant! From the title, I'm sure you have already come to the conclusion that this was very much an unplanned pregnancy. After much intense, emotional self-reflection, and a few arguments with my parents, I have come to the conclusion that terminating my pregnancy is not an option. I've always wanted to have children, it's just that now isn't the right time. But, I'm determined to make the best of the situation. Speaking of my situation, I feel I should fill you in on a few facts:

Pregnant and Single in the City

So I'll be 32 in October and quite possibly having a baby on or around my birthday, if it happens to be the other possibility, n november. It was definitely unplanned, but am well-off, not working, and live a generous lifestyle in a nice area of the city. I really have no family, no brothers or sisters, and would be doing this all on my own - but am used to doing everything alone, and as of now have 2 cats and a pug puppy and me living in a luxury 1 br condo.

I never knew...

I never knew how difficult pregnancy would actually be. I was just always so excited for the miracle of birth and becoming a mom, that I never put much thought to what a strain it would be on me and my body. The thing is, I always hear women talk about their pregnancies so fondly, as if it was a walk in the park and really one of the best times of their life. Now, don't get me wrong, I am incredibly excited for my little bundle of joy, but their are a lot of unexpected difficulties. I don't have a generally sensitive stomach so never paid much attention to morning sickness.
