Oh my god...

I had a positive home pregnancy test this morning.:eek:

I'm not sure what to think and honestly, I'm kind of upset right now. The timing is not good.

My fiance doesn't even know yet--he's in Argentina until January 3 and I can't call him, he can only call me. There is no phone or email where he's staying.

    ((HUGS)) Iris!! That is really big news.

    Is there someone you can confide in? You shouldn't be stressing out about this alone. I'm sorry your fiance isn't around to share this moment with you.

    Hang in there, hon! I think this is a scary moment for most every woman whether it was planned or not!

    That's pretty big news and I'm sorry your fiance can't be with you right now.

    Ah, well that explains feeling ravenous. Remember what I posted to you several days ago?

    I know this is a shock and not at all how you had planned it, but it will all be okay, hon. It really will.

    Congratulations and keeping my fingers crossed that your fiance calls soon. We'll call him telepathically.

    Hmmmm...maybe you could move up the wedding date a bit? It'll all work out.

    I am sure it will all work out.

    I remember that 'Oh, crap!' feeling.

    I do remember! And I was starting to suspect it then and hoping it was just PMS...

    And yes, wedding plans will definitely have to change now. Our wedding was supposed to be September 19 and apparently I'm due around September 5th, so that won't work now.

    Thanks everyone.

    I've definitely been there with the oh crap thoughts and feelings. Have faith that everything will work out. You can push the wedding up or push it back. I hope your fiance calls soon so you can talk to him about everything.

    PS. Congrats.

    Another "been there done that", down to having to move my wedding date. It took me a couple of weeks to get rid of the 'oh, crap' feeling, but honestly, we wanted kids anyway, so Max just arrived a couple of years ahead of schedule. ((Hugs)), it'll be ok.

    Sweetie, I am a firm believer in the "things happen for a reason" philosophy. My DH is a full-time student, so when we got pregnant, it certainly wasn't the "ideal" time, but we couldn't have been happier. We live in a teeny apartment, are on a tight budget, but are so happy with our little miracle. Things are slowly falling into place and we just make it work.

    I'm sure you can just move the wedding to when it will be right for you, and that's when it should be - when it's right for you, regardless of whether that's before or after the baby gets here.

    All my best and lots of hugs. It may not be the best timing, but it's a miracle none the less!

    My pregnancy was planned and I still had that "Oh, crap!" feeling for several weeks. It's hard to shake when you spend so many years trying NOT to get pregnant. Hugs to you and know that we're all here to help.

    Wow, that is big news. Congratulations.

    I think it is all going to work out for you. You wanted a small wedding anyway so everything happens for a reason!

    I agree - even my planned pregnancy was a bit of a shock - I expected to have more time trying to get used to the idea. I hope you get hold of your fiance soon, and have a happy and healthy nine months!

    I finally got to talk to my fiance today. He is very excited! So I am feeling a lot better today. I know we will figure everything out and probably be able to have wedding where everyone we care about can still come.

    I'm sorry I missed this last night. (((HUGS))) Iris! This was so me 9 months ago, our timing was terrible too. But everything will work out. You have a good guy and you already know so much about pregnancy and birth. So the timing isn't ideal, but when is it ever? I'm glad you are feeling better now. Congrats!!

    Me too. But now I just love being a mom. I can't possibly imagine my life without my son. I am also a believer in the "things happen for a reason" philosophy. I know things will work out for you.

    My first words when I saw the positive sign were "oh ****." But it's the best thing. Congratulations and lots of hugs!!

    I saw your post and thought, "That's weird, iris hasn't posted on this board for awhile." then I read what you wrote.

    I am like a few others where my daughter was a 'surprise." Even if you're married, settled, etc. you go through that "Oh no, what am I getting myself into!" stage. It took months for me to really be okay with being pregnant and face all the changes that would come with having a child.

    So...big hugs for you--like many have said, I have a feeling it will all work out.

    Just saw this post. Congratulations. Glad your feeling better now. Things will all fall into place. You'll see!!! :D
  • internetchickinternetchick Posts: 6,191Registered Users
    Just saw this. Congrats! To be quite honest I didn't get over the Oh crap! feeling with my 3rd until he was born. I cried for days when I found out. We had only planned on two kids and I had a 9 month old when I found out I was pregnant again. I focused my energy on the two kids I had and on planning the home birth I had always wanted. So if it takes you awhile to get over it you're not the only one!

    Congratulations and (((hugs)))!!!

    I was very shocked and upset when I got pregnant with Connor. My husband and I were Peace Corps volunteers in Uganda and were planning to stay an extra year when we found out--then had to come home early. It was the biggest lifestyle change I can imagine. But everything has turned out wonderfully with our family--I'm sure yours will be the same.

    Congratulations! I'm glad you're feeling better and that you're fiance is happy about it.
  • mayimmayim Posts: 2,301Registered Users
    awww, congrats iris! i'm glad you got to talk to fiance and he's excited!

    i had a very similar situation when i found out i was pregnant, so i think i know how you feel too. i'm beyond excited now (with 3 months or so to go) but i was scared to death at first! not that i didn't want to have kids, but the timing couldn't have been worse!

    i just figured out that sometimes life chooses you (because i probably would have waited for forever for that 'perfect timing').

    best wishes for a joyous new family adventure!

    Congratulations, Iris! There is a never a perfect time, and I got a bit freaked out even with very planned and timed pregnancy. Just relax and try to enjoy it! You'll have even more of those "oh my god, what did I get myself into" moments after you have the baby too. ;)
