and freaking out! LO is just under 10 months now and I am 3 days late with many pregnancy symptoms mimicking my first. I am so nervous and scared I don't even want to take a test yet. SO and I just had a talk the other day about how I wanted a 4 year gap because I thought that'd be easiest for everyone. We're also a young couple not married so I can only imagine the critics out there. My mom tells me all the time to be careful and wait and I can just imagine the disappointment on her face if I tell her I'm pregnant again. What I don't get is we are so cautious about not getting pregnant, I know it only takes one time but we've only had sex like 2 times in the last 3 months. On the bright side LO is very laid back and easy going so things have been going pretty well as a ftm, and SO and I have a very good relationship and have been together for 4 years so that's good too. I'm just worried financially and emotionally (for me) if we'll be able to handle another LO so soon. Because honestly I don't know, I'm sure SO would be fine but it's me I'm worried about since I'll be home with them most of the time. I also feel like I'm taking my time away from LO too soon, he's still just a baby. How did you handle an unexpected 2nd? Was it harder than you thought or easier? Am I just being a worry wart?
