I could write a novel as to why this shouldn't be happening, but the short story is that I thought I couldn't get pregnant due to an LP defect and that my body proved me wrong. This morning I took my 6th and 7th hpts in 4 days which finally confirmed (in writing!) that I am, indeed, pregnant.

I have a 14 month old DS and we planned on ttc when he turned 2 next year. We are in no financial position to have a 2nd child right now as DH is a full-time student and we both only work part-time. We were being "careful" (I was watching my fertile signs, which showed up the night after we dtd in the morning) and I never expected this. I can't even be excited because I'm so stressed out trying to figure out how we're going to do this financially...

Anyway, I hope things turn around soon and that I'm able to enjoy this pregnancy. I absolutely LOVED being pregnant and I love everything about babies! I guess I'm just really clouded by worrying about money and also worrying about what people (particularly my mom) will think when they find out.

ETA: My EDD? August 15, 2011. My 26th birthday.

Congrats and Welcome! I know it;s hard not to be stressed about finances, but the new baby won't be here tomorrow, so relax a little bit and try to plan and prepare the best you can over the next 9 months!

Hey JumpinJilly! Without sounding too stalkerish I remember you from TTCYFC board! We were on at the same time but I was mostly a lurker and only posted a bit under the name HaleyBaby09. Anyways, I remember you got your BFP around the same time as I, but I was due Sept 28th so we weren't in the same EC.

HaleyBaby09 sounds familiar, but since it's been so long I only remember some people from their siggies! I'll have to go back and check for your BFP story :-P I know your siggy won't be there anymore (stupid iv!) but maybe it will refresh my memory :-) Congrats on your pregnancy!

Congrats!! And I understand about money, but someone once told me, that everything just seems to work out in the wash. Hope all the best for you
