Shocking news-I donít even know how to process this.

I havenít been feeling well lately, but I figured it was stress/being overwhelmed at work/not eating well.

Turns out I am pregnant. Iím on the pill, so needless to say this was a surprise.

Iím pretty terrified at this point based on past history.

I completely understand your fear. You're probably afraid to be happy about this, because of your history. My prayers are with you.

A neighbor of mine growing up had 9 kids--all while on the pill. She used to say they popped out, holding a handful of pills!


Congrats! Fingers crossed all goes well for you.

Sending you good vibes for a calm spirit and a good outcome. It's understandable that an unexpected pregnancy can be disconcerting. Your doctor can give you advice and tell you what your next steps need to be.

Please take good care of yourself, and your baby. This doesn't mean you need to change your plans - do what's best for you, Mason, and your new blessing.

Sending good thoughts and prayers that everything works out for the best.

Congrats!

I've never been on birth control, so I don't know about the pill. Do some women still get pregnant while on it because nothing's 100% and this was just one of those rare times even when taken correctly, at the right time, etc.?

According to the ultrasound I had, on Thursday I was 4w6d. Completely unexpected.

I had actually taken the day off, because I had to take our class pet to the vet. On the way home, I picked up a test because I was late and not feeling well. But I was just testing to rule it out since I have had late periods before (I have endometriosis and PCOS). And then it turned up positive, so I went to the dr immediately and here I am.

Dr told me the pill is not 100% foolproof. I do not miss pills and I haven’t taken any meds that would interact. Plus, having endometriosis and PCOS is supposed to make it more difficult to get pregnant, so this child must be very determined!

When I read this

it just brought a smile to my face.

I could just imagine a happy little one, about 3 or 4, that definitely fit the bill of being very determined.

Congratulations and best wishes for a smooth pregnancy.
