What was your first reaction when you found out you were pregnant?

I'm FREAKING out! And it is completely mixed emotions.. super excited, then scared, ready for it 100%, then worried about having a second. I literally just found out two hours ago, and we have been "trying" (not very hard!) for about three months. I am five weeks as of today. I feel so fortunate that it didn't take much work (it took a LOT more with our daughter), but at the same time, freaking out that it happened much sooner than I expected!

Gah! I am just all over the place. I can't concentrate. I don't know what to think!

How did you react when you found out? Anyone else react all crazy like me?!

  • I cried when i found out i was pregnant with my second. only bc it was unexpected and i wasnt sure i could love another child as much as my first but i was wrong. i love them both equally. This time we were sort of trying so i wasnt too shocked to find out when i got pregnant.

  • With this last pregnancy, I freaked. We seriously we not trying, but we were also dumb enough to try the 'pull out' method one night because we had run out of condoms so I guess it's to be expected. I cried, he cried, we wondered what the hell we were going to do, went through a slew of emotions. Now at 33 weeks pregnant we're set, we know we can do this. It's wasn't a financial issue for us, it was an emotional one because we have a toddler and wanted to wait till she was out of diapers and in preschool before attempting #3.
