you didn't do anything dishonest so get rid of that feeling. i know a great deal of women who have gotten pregnant on the pill. it happens, it's not 100%. it's a great thing to have a little life. i'm the youngest of 7 and my mom was a sahm, too. you can make it work. pass down clothes, not going out, etc.
it will be fine. you're in this together, approach in that manner. you weren't expecting it, but it's here so move forward with it.
good luck and congratulations!

Take a deep breath. It will be a sensitive conversation. But as another mom said the Lord never gives us more than we can handle! Take some time and ask the Lord to give you guidance and wisdom about how to tell your husband. Also pray for sensitivity and understanding from your husband. This is a huge blessing. One day you and your husband will look at all your children and say that it was all worth it!!!!!!!!!!!

i may know nothing about marriage nor more then one pregnancy i mean i am only a teen mother but i do somethings about love...i know you have four children already but god has blessed you with a fifth and he should be happy for that..there is many people out there that can't even have children that want them dearly you are lucky you have so many but the money issue i would suggest w.i.c because formula is pretty expensive and i would also suggest welfare i am sorry if you feel that that's cheap of me to say but it helps a lot i do not have it but would love to get it because it gives you food stamps and a check every month it helps a lot

I agree that you need to just sit down and talk after the kiddos are in bed. Definitely look into whatever resources you can find. I was laid off before I had my daughter (she's 2 months old now) and its been pretty rough, but we are making it. I only have one daughter, but when you rely on two incomes the sudden loss of one is a big deal.

Because my husband makes too much money (which is ridiculous because we are literally lik3 $1000 over in yearly income!) we don't qualify for WIC or anything like that. But I have discovered Angel Food Ministries. Its a wonderful organization. You basically order food packs once a month, and you get food for extremely discounted prices. The food is restaurant quality, its really good! Name brand stuffs, nothing that has expired or close to expired shelf lives. It's really saved us! Last month we got $300 worth of meats and such for $84! Using them has cut our weekly grocery bill in half. I can't say enough about them.

They tend to work through churches, but they don't care how much you make, they don't care if you belong to the church or not. They aren't preachy, they just want to make good food affordable to all!

Goodluck with breaking the news to hubby. Hang in there!

I find it odd that you've announced it on the internet to people you don't know while your poor husband is in the dark.

there is a couple ways to make it less like a
"bad" thing. you could serve pasta with prego sause and give him a giant hint to figure it out on his own...or like i did you can say congradulations hunny! you a dad! again!
i agree that you shoudl check out WIC and food stamps and stuff like that. our church also has a lot of people willing to help with things if you live in a larget community you may get get donations from many sources. even look on craigslist.com if your hubby is apposed to help likke mine is you can always get bits and pieces and tell him you got it real cheep or from a parten or something like that. if your is like mine he doesnt know what our kids have in their closets anyway. =)
oh! congradulations and good luck!

I didn't even know I was pregnant again. We went out to eat one night and he's like 'you haven't had your period' and I'm like, 'hoiw did you know?' then he got sick and went to the bathroom. I was taking those progest. pills and i couldn't breastfeed my son.

I would say just sit down with him some night when the kids are in bed so you two can talk. Just let him know what is going on. He loves you! He may have some of the same first reactions that you did, but allow him to adjust. Then both of you cry (if you need to) and then talk together on where to go from here. Is there a way someone could pick up an extra job to gain some extra $? Look into what aid you qualify for (ie: WIC, etc.). Do you have family that could help out with babysitting if that would be needed for the extra job, or for extra support? Write things down. When it is all in your mind it seems VERY overwhelming. Writting stuff down helps to sort through things.
