Re: What was your first reaction when you got your positive pregnacy test?
The first time I was so happy that I shook and cried. We had been TTC for 7.5 months. My mom struggled with infertility for 8 years. I has assumed that I was doomed to bear the same burden. I couldn't believe I was actually pregnant. I jumped up and down. I looked in the mirror and told myself out-loud that I was pregnant. I was so happy.
The second time, I was happy and relieved. We had been TTC for 10 months. I was annoyed that it was taking so long. I was very, very happy.
The third time was completely unexpected. I had a 3 month old exclusively breastfed baby. I was pumping an extra 20 ounces a day for donation. I never imagined that pregnancy could happen to me so soon. I bawled like a baby. I'm currently around 7 weeks into that pregnancy. My first u/s in the morning. I'm still not in a good place with this pregnancy. This was not what I planned. I wanted more children but I was going to put a good gap between our second and third. I'm really struggling.
