I have a nearly 3 yr old and 9 month old who I stopped breastfeeding in November. I haven't had a period yet, the husband and I have dtd about 2-3 times since then. I just took a test as I thought I would've had a period by now and it's come up like this- is this positive? The other line is so faint, could it just be hormones haven't settled? I've been on and off the pill as we've hardly had sex but now I can't believe I could be so risky... really don't know how I'll cope with another baby so soon I've always wanted three but wanted to wait a good few years for the last.. oh god
I conceived dd2 while breastfeeding dd1 without a period too! So I know it is a shock!! Phone the gp they will be able to refer you for a quick dating scan asap so they rest of your pregnancy care can be schediled at the right time.
Not told anybody, I think everyone will be shocked but supportive. My husband's not back til tonight, not sure how he'll take it but I think once we get our heads round it we'all be fine. We wanted three but just not yet, but maybe it's better to get all the sleepless nights and nappies out the way in one go???!!!! Eating lots of chocolate right now to calm down
I ha 2 close together (1 year gap as DS2 was premature), then a 4 year gap, then 2 closeish together (2 years). And yes, it was a shock to the system to go back to nappies and sleepless nights. With the benefit of hindsight, I preferred the short gaps, even though it was tough at times.
Whatever you decide, you will do what you have to do and all will be well
I feel you! That's definitely a positive sister...We have 16 months between our 2 youngest boys...I'm not going to fluff it up for you because I'm sure you want honesty, at times it was hard, neither of them sleeping, terrible twos....eeerrrggghhh! But hey, we all came out the other end, our youngest will be 2 next month & our middle son started pre-school a couple of months ago. & just when we thought everything was getting easier....BAM a big fat positive pregnancy test yesterday! Baby No 7....totally feel you on the guilt front, my hubby seems quiet happy about the whole thing! I'm the one wandering if our 3 boys are going to suffer (3 eldest girls, already flown the nest)....perhaps in time we'll get our heads round it. Xx
Wow, baby no 7!! Congratulations, hats off to you, you must be super mum! Thanks everyone, I'm sure it will be fine once the shock wears off.? I went into work yesterday to talk about when I was coming back! 😳
