    Default I'm totally freaking out!

    So yesterday on a hunch I bought some pregnancy tests. This morning I did one before work and lo and behold there are two little lines. This will be my second bub but for DP it will be his 4th. I haven't told him yet because I am pretty sure he doesn't want anymore kids. I don't think he will be a jerk about it but he will be very very stressed out so I guess I am just working up the courage to deal with that. I am going to the doctors tomorrow to get confirmation via blood test etc. before I say anything to DP.

    But for now OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the words of Peg (+ cat) IM TOTALLY FREAKING OUT!

    I actually did want another baby but never thought I would talk DP into it. But even if I did I wanted to wait a bit. DD is only 15mnths old and still BF. She also still co-sleeps. Plus both my kids birthdays will be in the same month with my SS's in the two months beforehand. This will literally change everything especially for DD. I was not expecting this at all! Any ideas on how to break it to DP after the doctors?

    Just do it. Take a bit breath and say those words.
    I had to do sort of the same thing when I found out we were having dd. we hadn't really discussed having another, but we weren't actively preventing it either. I'm very lucky that df is a responsible man and he just hugged me and told me we would do whatever it took to make it work.

    Good luck- and congratulations!

    Congratulations! I have a 14mo, so understand your 'OMG!'.

    As for DH, this will be his 4th - he knows how babies are made! It has to have happened with some level of involvement from him.

    DH says we're done, but he also knows that until he actually gets up the guts to go get the snip then nothing is certain.

    Thanks for the replies. I ended up telling him everything straight up including how worried I was about stressing him out. He was totally fine with it and started helping me plan. Now that the shock has worn off we are both a bit excited. Kinda forgot how horrible the constant nausea is tho.

    Oh yay! I'm so glad it worked out It is very exciting, congrats! Also I was still co sleeping and breastfeeding when I fell preg with my youngest. I breastfed my toddler for the entire pregnancy and it was fine- it also meant that I had no pain whatsoever or cracking/bleeding when I was establishing breastfeeding with my new baby
