When my son was born my usband and I swore we were done.  The delivery was an aweful experience.  Well...last night I realized that my period never made it past the very light spotting stage which is concerning because my body is consistant.  Well, I decided to rule out pregnancy before calling the doctor (no sense in paying them $85 to do what I can do for $5).  I was not at all worried because we had been using protection so I was just waiting for the "not pregnant" to pop up so I could throw it away and get on with my day...well that did not happen.  Much to my suprise it said "pregnant".  I broke down crying.  I hate feeling this way, but I did not want any more children.  My first thought after finding out I was pregnant was about how much of a mistake we had made...that makes me feel like shit.  How in the world are we going to handle another baby when my son will only be a little over a year old when we have it?!  I don't believe in abortion so we are left with one option...and that scares me.  I will love this child no matter what, but we are so not ready for this.  My husband was laid off in august and has had no luck finding another job and as a result we do not have insurance.  I am so scared.
