I was scared to death to tell my husband because we are not in a great place financially and live in a two bedroom apartment with two kids now. I thought adding a third would stress him out because he is the only one working, but it turned out great. He was excited after the initial shock and stress. He said as far as the finances, you cant really ever be 100 % prepared for it unless you are a millionaire..lol
As far as school and work-I worked full time and finished school-including an externship-when I was pregnant with my 2nd. (I found a job for awhile but daycare was expensive and I prefer to stay home) and money is tight with us but its worth it and I just budget like crazy. I would wait as long as possible to tell any co-workers or prospective jobs. They legally can not fire you but they can get away with not hiring you.
no problem. unplanned pregnancy can definitely be stressful but everything will work out fine. I am here if you ever need to just talk it out or want reassurance. You will be just fine.. :lol:
I'm sorry I don't mean to sound weird but I'm jealous. You didn't want to get preggo and got preggo and I've been trying for a whole year with no luck lol. Congrats though. I think your hubby will be ok once he wakes up after fainting on the floor lol. You'll make it work. When I got preggo with my daughter I was only 14 and couldn't even get a job legally. Everything worked out. Then I got preggo with my son years later and me and my hubby were temporarily living at my mom and dad's with hardly any room to spare. He was an accident because I wasn't even trying to get pregnant. Me and my new husband tried and tried almost a year then gave up because we got into a situation where he had a part time job, I had no job, we had no vehicle or a place of our own. I ended up getting pregnant two months after we stopped trying. We lost him in Dec. 2011 though. We've been trying since.
Quoting Julian's Momma :):" if it makes you feel any better, I took another test and it was negative so now I have no idea. I'm just ... [snip!] ... show. I'm sorry it has been such a struggle for you ttc :( I hope it happens for you soon. thank you ladies for your kind words"
No it actually doesn't make me feel better. I mean I know you weren't actually ttc but it's good to see that other women are having their babies. I know the let down when a test comes up negative when you're so sure you had a positive. Was it the same brand test you used? Or do you think your urine could have been more diluted? I hope it happens soon too. We're going on vacation to Tennessee in March I don't know if i'll ovulate before we go or what but if not then I hope it happens while we're on vacay. That'll be even more special. The way it's been looking for the past 3 months I'll O while we're on vacation. But I hope for you that you get the answer you want, whether it be negative or positive.
Quoting Julian's Momma :):" Thank you. I think it is great you all are taking a little vacation, and I LOVE Tennessee, it is so beautiful. ... [snip!] ... son, we had to use medication in order for it to happen. It was hard but it happened soon enough. How old are your kids now?"
We're taking a family vacation. It'll be me, my husband, my daughter 13, and my son 5. Our angel was born Dec 29,2011. My daughter went up there during the Thanksgiving break with my aunt and she didn't get to do half the things she wanted so we're gonna go and let her do all those things. We're renting a cabin that is only a few minutes from downtown Pigeon Forge. She wants to do Dollywood and go horse back riding again. She also didn't get to shop much when she went so we're gonna go shopping also. I had a cyst a while back and one of the doctors talked to me about PCOS but the doctor who actually performed the surgery is saying no I don't have it. The other doc, the one who said I do, is saying that because I have some facial hair (not too much) and am overweight but i know it's due to me being lazy sometimes and not watching what I eat. He said that also because I had the big cyst that was removed. I had a little one hiding behind that one but other than that nothing. My cycles are regular and I've had two children before without needing medication. My hormone levels are also normal as of August. What are your symptoms since you've been diagnosed. If nothing happens this cycle we're going to the docs for a workup. Me and my husband. I'm thinking he may have low testosterone. He has the man b**bs and his anger flares up for little reasons and weight gain quickly. Those are some symptoms of it.
