Prego surprise

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

So we are a family with 2 children, 10going on 11 in a matter of weeks and a just turned 6 year old. I have been pretty much stay at home and just finished my degree in Elementary Ed most recently. I was excited for a new chapter for us. I just found out I am pregnant and am panicking. My oldest will be almost 12 years older this little person. Our finances may not improve now. I know this was irresponsible but I am feeling like going through with this would be burdening every one. Not to mention we are not a couple who have a plethora of family support. I don't know if I'm looking for comfort or for advice. Just feel like my life is barreling out of control right now. Has any one here experienced this or know any one who has?

Thank you so much for your reply! It must be great to have such a large family:) All those grand kiddos to spoil. I hope their financial situation gets better. If you are a believer, please pray that God directs us and I will pray for your family to experience a boost financially. Looks like we will need one as well as well as the confidence to ignore all the crazy looks and comments we will get from others;)

I know many who have had this experience and it is certainly no uncommon. I personally have 6 children grown and they have given us 19 wonderful grandchildren. Our lives are blessed in so many ways and mostly because of this wonderful family. Life will work it's way through this and you will find there was a reason for this blessing. I hope this helps you. Our son has six children as well and they are right now in desperate financial conditions. the saving grace is the family. the children range from 16, 2 @14, 13, 11, and 3 1/2. the older children love the 3 1/2 so much and they have taken pride in caring for her from day one. You will still be able to use your drgree and maybe in a more positive way. I would very much like to talk with you about some ideas if you would like. Im a good listner and have lots of little pepple experience.

Me and my hubby have one baby and we struggle week end and week out. Its only by the Grace and mercy of God we make it, but Its alright. As long as I have the Lord, and my son and husband everything is gonna be just fine. People tend to get so wrapped up in the stress of bills and the other things of this life they forget what's important. The Lord and family. The Lord blessed you with another addition to your family so you would have more people to love and love you. I hope this makes sense and helps you. May God guide and bless each step you take and each decision you make.

My prayers are with you and your familial you and I know you're going to be fine and enjoy every step of the way. You have a blessing. Be positive and surround yourself with other positive friends.

Personally I've learned not to care about what others think... NOT EVEN if it's your own family. Unless they are helping financially they have no saying in what you do. A baby is ALWAYS A blessing. A life changer. God has a plan for everyone and I don't think he would've given you a third baby if he didn't think you could handle it. I am one of 5 children and my parents had it tough. We were poor and ate bean tacos, soups, cheap food for a while and we all survived! You will be ok so long as you and your husband are doing well, everything else will follow through. Patience is key! Every time you feel upset depressed worried or any negative feeling; Know you have a wonderful little blessing inside of you! Keep your head up and you will be ok!
