I feel that this is a unique situation, but maybe not in this day and age. I am only 30 years old and have an amazing family. My husband and I have been together for 8 years and married for the last 5. He has 4 wonderful children that I would do anything for, I think of them as my own. What I want most in this world is for my family to be happy and healthy, but in a very very close second I want to know the joy of bringing a life into this world. My husband knows this and has since this first couple months after we started dating. He and I were only able to afford a vasectomy reversal this past winter and we have been trying to get pregnant for the past 8 months. I know things take time to heal and for his sperm count to come back up to normal. I understand this and even though these past months have been an emotional roller coaster for me, I was hit with some pretty big news last night.
I found out that my 19 year old step daughter is pregnant. Many emotions flew through my head and heart, but the one that is lingering is not happiness or joy, but sadness. I don't know how to deal with the idea of becoming a grand mother before a mother. If there are any women out there who might have gone through a similar situation, I would love some advice.
