So I found out today that I am pregnant.
My DH and I have been married for 1.5 years. I had a regular doctor's appointment today with a routine pregnancy test and it came back positive... I called my husband and told him almost immediately, and he is pretty much still in shock.
We're 22 and 23 and hadn't planned on having kids for another five years at least. I've been on the same birth control for six months. Before that, I had been on a different one. I knew something wasn't right with this one, but continued to take it. Stupid decision on my part, obviously.
We've been long distance since March of 2007 and he was finally able to move to be with me in May of 2009. He's been here two months, and here we are! I guess life has different plans than we do.
My DH is absolutely terrified of being a father so young, while I am kind of okay with it because I know that we are capable of providing for a child and being good parents. We're both active duty air force, so we have health care and everything, it's just a matter of getting used to the idea. As much as we didn't want this to happen, it's here.
So how do you wrap your mind around the fact that you're going to be a mom soon? I haven't really been able to actually process it. Granted, it has only been four hours.... Any advice for me would be fantastic seeing as how I obviously know nothing about pregnancy.... Oh, and I also don't know how far along I am.
I'll probably become pretty regular around these parts...
