I've known of this pregnancy for 10 days now but have not felt pregnant at all. Alittle worrisome because of the past but I still believe things are cooking away in there. For reassurance I've been taking my temperature daily and making sure it's staying high. The miscarriage 2 years ago really warped happiness in the beginning of pregnancy for me. I don't feel like I can be completely sure that everything is ok till I really start throwing up, peeing all the time, and feeling kicks. I was paranoid the whole pregnancy with Damien, and this is why I bought a $175 baby doppler and listened to his heartrate all day, every day for as long as I could. The only real thing I have noticed is my increase in appetite which is something I have every pregnancy but maybe I'm just not eating much. Who knows.
I told two Moms that have girls in Alex's Daisy Scout Troop last night. Their basic reaction was "wow! Congrats! This wasn't planned I take it? You're brave 2/1 was enough for me. Well I guess you're a stay at home mom though." I totally expect alot of mixed feelings from people on having 4. I really don't see why anyone cares, it's not as if they are paying for our kids in any way. Another Mom friend who's daughter is friend's with Alex was quite taken back when I told her. Her first response was "congrats! That's great!" but then it changed to "you sure get pregnant easy, I wish I could have been like that. I had to use fertility drugs for Allison." I felt bad for her because she went on to say that her first born a boy was stillborn at 5 mths, then came Jayson and Allison. Now she's upset because her hubby has drawn the line and said no more so she was pretty bittersweet about it. Probably won't bring it up around her unless she asks. LOL The only others I've told are internet friends and friends who live out of the state that I've known forever and they won't be in contact probably ever with my parents which is the next dilemma. How long should I wait to tell them? Any ideas???
I know our parents will be happy overall but they will shocked and we'll hear a lot of doubt that this is a good idea. Again, not sure why. Is the norm of this world only to have 3 kids?? I figured I'd wait as long as possible till I started showing and have the kids tell the news. I don't think they could possibly act upset getting the news from 2 very happy grandkids. Ya think?
