And I'm not too thrilled at all :( I have 2 kids from my previous marriage and me and SO have been together for a year and we just found out in pregnant. He's excited but I'm not. We live in a small apartment and share a car, plus I'm a SAHM right now, he works but not making that much money. But enough to get by and a little more. I'm dreading 9 months of pregnancy again. UGH, will this feeling subside??

I know it's scary now but it will be ok. I felt like that when I got pregnant with my third. We had just moved and I had just started a new job, it just wasn't ideal timing. He is now 4 months and so ridiculously perfect I can't imagine life without him. It surprised me how much I really love having an infant again. Breathe and relax, it will be ok.

I see how it can be shocking if you weren't expecting it, but if you're in a stable relationship I think you'll be excited later on. Finances can always change.

I'm sorry but if you wasn't ready for another child you know how to prevent it. Hope you feel more excited later.

 Yes it will. I found out in late Jan that we were expecting our 4th (vasectomy was planned for Feb) I was not mentally prepared for anther child. I had closed that part of our lives, I was ready for prek with our youngest and being able to attend school parties with ease and have some me time.

 I spent the first 2.5 months crying everytime I thought about baby, the next 2 months dealing but not really wanting to share. It wasn't until we found out gender that I was able to really start to see how she would fit into our family but was still freaking when I thought of up all nights, nursing round the clock, having a baby at this or that event we were attending etc.

 I am 34 weeks today and feel much better, I still have my moments of panic, wow another baby and starting over but I am excited or at least know I will be excited once I see her. Thankfully my Husband has been over the moon since the start which was a saving grace but it was still very hard. My first unplanned pregnancy and I never would have thought I could feel the things I did...

 Good luck momma, you will get there!
