  • I felt guilty when I first got pregnant. My cousin was (and still is) TTC, and I know she'd make a wonderful mother. She had just suffered through several false positive tests, only to discover she wasn't pregnant. I felt guilty, because mine was a suprise -we weren't even trying. I know it upset her, but she was still very supportive. When my daughter was born, I could tell she was upset when she came to the hospital to visit - but she did it anyway.

  • Well with our first child, my hub was less than thrilled. We were young, hadn't been married that long and he was terrified. So yea I had some guilt with that. When we got preggers with Child number 2, I didn't feel guilty till after I had her. Then it was the guilt of loving another child as much as I love my son. Just new mama baby blues.

  • Only when I watch the news and see another kidnapped, raped, or killed child. Then I think, What did I bring my kids into?

  • yes. I hate this world I have brought my son into. And I am afraid (mostly bc of DH) that the end of the world will happen before DS is grown and I won't be able to protect him. BTW DH is conviced it will be zombies. I cant tell you haw many dream I have had where zombies kill DS and I wake up crying. It's so Fed up! even bought a t shirt that says Shut the F up the world isn't going to end in 2012.

  • i don't really feel strong guilt but sometimes i think, we should have adopted, so many children out there without families. we could have given a troubled child a good home, instead of getting pregnant.

    i'm surprised no one else interpreted the question this way.
