Hi Ladies,

I just found out that I am pregnant with baby #2. I am really excited! I've been wanting a second child, but I'm not too sure how my husband is going to react to the news. This is an unexpected pregnancy. I honestly do not even feel pregnant. Only reason why I took the test was because I'm over a week late, which I thought was just due to the ovarian cyst.
Anyway, I'm worried about my husbands reaction. Last time he and I talked about having a baby he had told me that one child was enough, but if we did have another child we would have to be in a better financial situation.
I guess I'm just nervous and scared to tell him because I want him to be excited and happy like I am, from the moment I tell him. I just don't think that is going to be the first response.

So I told him. I knew he wasn't going to be happy, and he isn't. He is stressing over it very much. I can understand his concerns. His current job and pay he has right now is temporary. By the time the baby is born we will be in a new place making a quarter of what he makes now. I understand the stress and concerns. But we also have until then to prepare and to do what we can to get ourselves in a better situation so it is less of a struggle.
I knew he wasn't going to be thrilled about the news, and I knew it was going to stress him out. I did not, however, anticipate him saying he did not want the baby and wants me to abort. However, that is not an option for me.
He needs more time. I know by the time the baby arrives he'll feel differently, but I hope his feelings change before then.

no i dont think he will be over he moon but tell him and give him time he will have no choice but to accept it my partner didnt take the news of any pregnancies we had with excitement actually he walked out came home a few hours later and just ignored the fact until i started showing and when they came along he wouldnt have changed it for the world,
so stop freeting let him know you be excited for you its a joyous time mind yourself and stay away from stressful situations. Enjoy and hope he takes it well.
