I've been with BH for quite some time now and already have two kiddies. Our second child is almost 10 months.
We were having a fairly quiet day today and I realised that I was due for my period. Given that my baby is only almost 10 months and fully breastfed, my cycles have been a bit all over the place. But for some reason (I really don't know why) I did an IC pregnancy test just because.
At first as the dye ran across the test I thought I saw a shadow of a line. My heart skipped a beat but I brushed it off as nothing and washed my hands. The second I dried my hands I picked up the test and it was there, faint but clear as day. A second, positive line.
No way. I started shaking and my heart raced. I was completely shocked. We've been careful, but it seems not careful enough. This baby is not planned at all. We were happy with just our two babies, although I did have the urge for a third from time to time, the idea of a third child scares me. I'm really petrified.
I broke the news to hubby who is also in shock. He did say that he supports me no matter what, but the word "termination" was thrown around too. I honestly don't think I could go down that path. But then, the thought of a third child still really scares me.
This was not the way I had in mind to seeing out 2015. We had plans in the pipeline for 2016 which will change now.
I really do feel lost as to what to do. I haven't had the chance to have a full, proper discussion with DH yet.
Obviously this is a decision I have to make myself, but does anyone have any guidance at all? I'm scared, confused, maybe even a little excited?!
