after I had my son, I wanted to try and get prego again that December 2011 (got preg in Oct instead). I always wanted my children close in age. my sister and I are 15 months apart and never fought. my nieces' are 3 1/2 yrs apart and fight all the time. so, I am happy they are close in age, if I could change anything, it would be that they were born in different months LOL. but that's ok. we will have 1 party with 2 themes works for me.
good luck on your pregnancy. and let us know how it went with telling your parents.
I know this is your first pregnancy, just relax and try not to read so much about what can/might go wrong. trust me, you will be worried the whole time. just relax and enjoy this wonderful experience! being a mother is amazing!! oh, and make sure to bring some tissues with you. I was ttc for a go 4 yrs. I had an IUI done and failed and thought I'd never have a baby. when I finally did get pregnant and saw my baby for the first time on the u/s, I was beside myself. I remember saying 'oh my God' and the nurse got scared...but it was just so amazing seeing this little baby moving on the u/s screen and knowing that, that's YOUR baby! its just bring tears to my eyes.
pregnancy is not always fun, you may actually hate it. it defiantly has its ups and downs. but its well worth it in the end! and when you feel you baby kick for the first time...ahh, its the best!!!
lurking from 3rd tri.......im almost 29 wks and i still check for blood everytime i use the restroom...i have never lost a baby but its always a fear of mine (and for me, the fear isnt over till the baby is in my arms). this is my 2nd preg. and i told my parents and hubby the day i found out (11/17/11). i told the rest of the fam on thanksgiving day with my first, i also told them the day i found out (that was thanksgiving morning) - as u can tell, my babies are only going to be 11 months / 11days apart!!! good luck to you!!! ps i think telling your parents on mothers day is a great idea!! and a good gift View Thread
