emotions of an unexpected pregnancy

Saturday, November 9, 2013

So...I recently wrote about my experience of finding out I was pregnant with this little guy. I had been meaning to write it for as long as he's been alive, and I finally did it. And let me tell you. It felt so. good. And when I go back and read it (as I have more than once...or twice...or five times) it still hurts a little. But it hurts so good. Does that make any sense??? I was nervous about sharing it, but I'm so glad I did because the response I have gotten from strangers, friends, family and friends of family has absolutely floored me. I have received so much support from people that I don't even talk to on a regular basis, or at all. I must admit, sharing it felt like one of those standing in front of the room stark naked type of feelings.

It was a difficult experience to go through, and my own personal trial. If you're interested in reading my story, please feel free here:

And now some pictures of the best surprise we've ever gotten...
Hope you liked all the blurry shots. Because with this kid, that's all I can ever get. 
Okay...and one of this girl. She looks pretty miserable, doesn't she??

Beautiful children! They definitely look happy. :)

So, I'm an idiot and just realized that I posted my comments on a different blog than yours. Oops. Anyway, I just wanted to repost what I posted there because you are an amazing mom and a wonderful person.


I also apologize for being a bitter infertile woman that posted a bitter response. :) I hope you forgive yourself. Having emotions and doubts are part of what makes us humans. I appreciate the brutal honesty of your post. Your post reminds me that we all have struggles and inner turmoil about a variety of things in our life. Your emotions about your second pregnancy are just as valid as my emotions about being infertile. As a parent to a child that was unwanted both during the pregnancy and then after he was born, I can honestly say that what matters to a child is the love that he receives in a loving home. As soon as my abused child entered our home, he has blossomed. We are both unsure parents but love him with everything we have. Your darling son has been loved by both of you from the moment he was born and I guarantee that that is what matters. Not what your thoughts were when you were pregnant. Both your children have wonderful parents and you are an amazing mom.
