My husband and I recently got married and we bought a house. We bought a house because our 2 bedroom was too small to accommodate the 5 children between us.I get my kids every other week and he gets his everyother weekend. We felt it was a good choice to invest in a home so all of our kids have a nice place to stay instead of a cramped 2 bedroom apartment. We actuaklly just moved in a couple weeks ago.

We had both decided to wait on anymore kids due to custody concerns on both of our sides (we are both in court for custody matters). Now I just come to find out, I am pregnant. I am happy about it, but concerned now. We didn't want to rush into more kids until all of our court concerns were over with. I said I definately wanted to wait and he felt the same. Now I am pregnant and I am terrified to tell him. I don't know what to do. I worry we will not be able to afford another child and even afford to live in our new home.

Has anyone ever had anything similar happen to them? I am not sure how to even approach him about the situation.

All I can really tell you is what I was told when I got pregnant and became worried about finances. "You will always find the way." "There is no perfect time to get pregnant or have a baby." Times are tough but as Moms and Dads, we find the way to care for our children. Sending you good vibes!
