Babies Babies

Never ever ever thought I'd join this group!

I didn't even know it was here! My youngest is 12 years old, was 11 when I joined cafemom, so I never even looked, and it was never in my recommended groups! I still don't have a baby, but I am pregnant, I'm due 2/1/14, so I will have a baby! It will make for 5 kids for my husband and I. Our others are 12, 14, 15, and 17. My husband and I have been married almost 7 years. We have a very unconventional family, I am 25, and only my youngest is biologically mine, but they're all our kids nevertheless. A few weeks before finding out about this pregnancy we had decided that my husband would be getting a vasectomy. We've had two early miscarriages, and then a still birth four years ago, and I didn't want to try again. Needless to say, this pregnancy came as a total shock! It will be our first baby together, and so far, so good. I'm 14 weeks and baby looks perfect, but mom isn't doing so hot. I'm in the hospital for the second time. I hope it's ok that I joined before I actually have my baby :) I just saw the group and thought, hey, I can use that! It's been 12 years since I've done the whole baby thing, though I have a lot of practice with newborns, I'm an RN and work in labor and delivery, or did. I just switched to working in the ER part time, and going to one day a week in L&D, though I may have to postpone that transition, with my health problems and everything that is going on.

Thank you! I think I'm finally over the shock, but it'll be a big adjustment to add a newborn to our family!

Oh it is definitely an adjustment, but it is going to be so much fun this time around. It is so much different when you have older children at home.

That baby is going to be smothered with love, affection and tons of overprotectiveness.

I am really excited for your family.  :)

My kids are very hesitant about being excited, or even acknowledging that I am pregnant, and I understand why. I remember how excited they all were with my last pregnancy, and how devastated they were when we didn't get to bring their sister home. I'm that when (if) this baby is baby is born and is healthy, they'll be excited and happy. I'm working on getting excited, but my kids aren't the only ones who are hesitant and afraid, unfortunately.

Thank you! So far, baby has looked perfect in every ultrasound, and I've had several. I have an awesome doctor, so I'm starting to hope, just a teeny tiny bit. I think that's probably why I joined this group. I'm starting to think maybe baby will be ok this time.
