I never expected this to happen. It took us 2 years to get pregnant with our 3rd child that we lost 12 weeks ago. And now we just found out we are expecting again...due in October. I'm excited and nervous. I've been questioning God's plan since December and now I'm wondering if this is His answer to my questions. I'm so surprised it happened so quickly. I had some tests done on me to see if I was OK, and the doctors said I am. So, we wanted to try again and here we are in that reality already.
We weren't going to tell anybody for awhile but once my husband told his mom she has gone and blabbed already. So, I decided if people were going to know then we should ask them to pray for us and this new miracle. I felt bad for my husband though because when he told his mom she made a reference about us waiting longer. Then went on and on about when his sister lost her baby, and something about a friend losing a baby. I just felt bad that she couldn't be positive for him. Like we don't already understand the reality of a dead baby. That was part of the reason I was hesitant to tell people because I didn't want to deal with the stress of their reactions, I already have enough stress.
But I'm going to try to ignore that and move on. I shouldn't be surprised by her reaction so I'm not going to dwell on it. Now I just need to figure out my future since it seems to be changing again. Has anybody else experienced a pregnancy so soon after a loss? I can't believe I'm 6 1/2 weeks pregnant when technically I should be 32 weeks pregnant with the daughter we lost. How crazy!
