Red face Well here I am I guess

Just tested positive this morning.

Still sort of in shock...this is kind of an 'oops' pregnancy. It's not that the baby isn't WANTED. S/he is...really, I've cried nights over wanting a 4th...but our reason for not TTC was finances and DH's health...but here it is I suppose. Obviously God has other plans so...I'm going to trust that He led me to it, He'll lead me through it. God will provide, right?

So here I am...#4...I'm still freaking out a little (a lot?!?!)

I've only told DH and my BFF...we'll tell family when I absolutely have to.

I'm due somewhere in the last week of Feb...one calculator I found said Feb 22. Hopefully this baby won't be a week late like DS2 and push me into March lol.

Please be gentle as I process this!! It's a lot to take in...with my previous kids there were a couple months of TTC for me to build up some happiness...this is just **surprise**!!!!! lol

Re: Well here I am I guess

Congrats and Welcome to the group. I am also pregnant with a surprise #4. A month ago we were planning all kinds of trips we wanted to take now that our youngest is getting a little older and will sit in the car for awhile and then I missed a period and tested positive. I always wanted #4 but DH said he was done. We are both really excited now so like you said God had his own plans and we are excited for this new addition. I have also only told DH and my 2 best friends. We are trying to come up with some cute ideas to tell the family since no one is expecting #4 from us.

DH is very excited...so that's a plus. I'm working my way up to it.

I just have to let go and let God. Know that everything will work out.

LOL I even sat and thought of names while the older 2 were in swim class LOL

Girl- Cora Paige Lucinda
Boy- No. Freaking. Clue. LOL

Working on #5 here. Due on the 21st. Take your time adjusting to this new plan. Life is full of surprises; it would be so boring if it weren't. Congrats!
