This came as a huge surprise because I am on birth control and now is not a good time for us to be having another baby. I'm finishing up college and would start teaching I August....well now I'm due in August. I'm due August 22 according to my last period but I have not idea if that is correct because idk if I'm ovulating when I would normally because of ththe birth control. My husband and I are still in shock and kinda upset that this is happening now. I'm sure I'll figure it out but right now its cramping my style lol. Maybe I'll get the opportunity to teach summer school and then all will be ok.
Wow ladies, I know this is the internet and everything is about gut reaction, but I would hope a group of women would be able to be a bit more understanding of different scenarios and situations we as women and only as women can find ourselves in. Instead of showing compassion, understanding, and empathy for someone who is clearly trying to connect, you immediately become offended, jump on them, and tell them “to find someone else to talk to” - is that not what this is - a venue for us to voice our concerns, fears, frustrations? Yes, there are quite a few women who took many years and dollars to conceive, and I am part of that shitty sorority, but that doesn’t make us the only ones who are allowed to be scared of our uncertain futures or use humor for levity.
