HUGE surprise pregnancy - #4 due March 6
Fri, 07-27-2012 - 10:37pm
Hey, my name is Abbie. I'm moving over here from the February EC which is kind of discouraging but I only had a week shaved off. I was due feb 26 and now I'm due march 6. I have three boys ages 13, 8 and 4 and I am 33 years old and married. I live in new Hampshire. Baby number 4 was really a walking nightmare for a bit...well, I'm still going through the transition really but I'll have to get over the shock sooner or later. It was a condom failure...the first one in our 15 year history. Dh was going in for the vasectomy right before this happened! anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself. Abbie

Me, too. I have an 8, 5, and 3 year old. All girls. #4 is the biggest surprise of my life and I'm still not totally grasping the idea of it.

Congrats and welcome aboard!

Congrats!  And a congrats to crabapple!  8 kids!  Wow!  Bless you! 

I too am expecting #4.  A shock too.  And I'm a little depressed about it.  I really wasn't ready (probably NEVER) for a 4th child.  But God gave me another one so I'm trying to deal with reality. 

I have the opposite of you.  I have 3 girls.  Their ages are 6, 5, and 3. 

How have you been feeling with your 4th?  I'm sooooooo extremely tired.  I didn't suffer from fatigue with my other pregnancies.  I feel like sitting on the couch all day but I force myself off.  I'm usually couch-bound from 6pm till bedtime!

Well good luck and take care!

You sound like me, My date was changed to March 7th, up a week so yah, I did NOT plan a baby with new hubby. We have 4 between us my three are 12 8 and 6 and his is 11. Im to old (35) and not ready LOL. But after seeing my peanut again today the shock and denial is wearing off and I think i might be happy. In in NJ. SuzAnne
