Welcome baby #2.
This was taken around 6:30 pm earlier tonight. It's not with FMU, but I had a slight feeling of needing to pee for a couple hours and I held it in so it was fairly concentrated and not diluted lol. I've had I think 8 periods since DS was born, and my cycles were always 27-29 days long. Two days ago I was feeling crampy on my left side and yesterday the side of my left boob was sore. When AF is due, I have NO symptoms and I don't start cramping until after AF starts and they can be pretty severe. I am on CD 29 today. I believe I ovulated on January 24 (I get crampy when I ovulate), which would make today 13 DPO. AF usually arrives at 13 DPO. After having those weird cramps and that soreness the past few days and no sign of AF, I decided to go buy some tests.
This pregnancy was not planned. I've had serious baby fever for the past month or two, so a part of me is happy. The other part of me is worried as smurf because we are not ready for a baby. I'm beginning the nursing program this summer and will be due to give birth in the middle of the fall semester. I have an almost 16 month old son. I'm worried about how I'm going to be able to juggle it all, or if I'm going to need to drop out of school and get a job. I've been working my ass off in school getting A's and now I'm having another kid? I'm also scared of how DH will react. He is the money maker, he knows we're not ready. But he's never seemed too concerned about pregnancy. He knows I'm not on birth control, but when I was telling him AF is coming soon, then the next day saying it hasn't shown up yet, he didn't seem to care too much. And today, he didn't ask and I didn't tell. You'd think if he was worried at all about getting me pregnant he'd want to know if my period was late, right?
Don't get me wrong, this baby will be welcomed with open arms. It just sucks how soon it happened. I had a whole 5 year plan for myself and my family lol. Ugh...and the crazy thing is, this baby will be due October 15. My birthday is October 8, and DS was due October 22 but was born October 13. We are going to have 3 birthdays within days of each other lol.
I know blue dye tests suck, but this was my only option at the store besides an expensive digital test, and I honestly wasn't expecting a positive. And that's a pretty unmistakable positive! It started showing up right away, and the picture was taken about 2 minutes after.
Has anyone been through a similar situation? I need support
and I need to know there is some way I will make it through and not have to give up my dreams. The sooner I get school over with, the sooner I can have a real career to better support my family. Which is why I'm willing to give it a shot.
