Now I am freaking out

I just got a + pregnancy test and now I am freaking out. This was not planned and was just thinking last week how I was finally ok with 4th being our last and moving on from the baby stage. We do the rhythm method and use protection during fertile times of the month, but I noticed it seemed like I was showing signs of ovulating earlier this month and well I guess I did. Now I am freaking out.

I'm sorry give yourself time to process. Everything WILL be ok.

Re: Now I am freaking out

Congratulations. Remember that early pregnancy is a very ambivalent time. Even if you'd planned to get pregnant you mind gets all wonky. Be good to yourself and give yourself a big hug. Hang in there mama. You need some time to process!

Re: Now I am freaking out

Thank you all. I think once I am able to talk to dh about it I will feel much better about it all but that won't happen until tonight until the kids go to bed.

I follow the same birth control method for 9 years without fail and the moment I stopped controlling the days, I became pregnant. Its a beautiful thing. Congratulations!

It always seem to work that way doesn't it. The second you make peace with something it changes! Give it a few days and it will get easier. No matter how planned or unplanned a pregnancy is there is always some happiness and some fear/anxiety. It seems completely unfair that pregnancy hormones have to happen during pregnancy. You are growing a new person ,who has time for pregnancy hormones making everything harder.

How are you feeling after talking to DH?
how was his reaction?

It will be fine. One day you'll be saying "I can't imagine our lives without him/her".
