This is Rachel (miamor0716) - Mother to Angel baby Caleb, and to his little sister Breanna. I signed in using my facebook. For whatever reason the site wouldn't remember me and I got tired of having to log in every time I came back to the site.

Anyways, in an earlier post, I said that I may be pregnant again. I thought about how I referred to it as the "oops" part of my message, and I wanted to apologize to anyone that offended. When our family is blessed with the chance to have another baby, it's definately NOT going to be an oops!!

My AF showed up right on time so I'm not pregnant. I have to say, I am really disappointed. By no means are DH and I financially ready for another one right now, but I want to be pregnant again so bad it hurts. Breanna is only 5 months old right now, and everyone keeps telling me "it's too soon to have another baby" but I just can't help but want another one. I don't know if it's me secretly using it as a coping mechanism to deal with my constant grief over my son, or what it really is. DH says that if I do end up pregnant he's going to be "happy as hell" but at the same time, really wonder how we're going to manage. I don't want there to be any doubt when it comes time to decide to try for another.

Hi Rachel - I'm sure you didn't mean anything by saying it would be an "oops" baby but it is so nice of you to be so cognizant of others' feelings (though I'm sure everyone can understand how overwhelming it would be to be pg again right now and that is all you meant - so no worries!).
