Quote from Penny4URthoughts
Don't know weither to be glad or sad. My husband and I two weeks ago put in a bid on a bigger house, but only if we are able to sell our house. Well three months ago I had to change my birth control, for a month I spotted or bled. Well I was suppose to start last week, and it didn't come. So this morning ran to Wal-Mart picked up a pregnancy test and load and behold its positive. Told my husband this evening, and he said what I figured he would. Well withdraw the bid on the house and take ours back off the market. I was very saddened. We have talked about having another one in the next year, but I guess this was just to soon. We wanted to see how we were handling the new house first. Now we really will need a bigger home. I'm just don't know how to feel right now. :wink2:
Things work out they way they do for a reason---sometimes, unknown to us at the time. For some of us, events/situations like this are cosmic... for others, comic...yet others, tragic. Attitude has everything to do with what applies to YOU.
Take it one day at a time. You will work it all out, somehow, as the months go by.
I truly am sorry about losing the bigger house. I know you feel thwarted and frustrated. But another opportunity will come along, when the timing is right. Fortunately, babies don't need much space that first year or two, and if need be, you can room the baby in with you while you nurse/feed him or her in the night. So there, really, that solves your problem/need for another bedroom or space. For AT LEAST a year or two, you don't really need another bedroom or bathroom so you CAN make do with the space you have already.
THEN, while pregnant, you can look for the home of your dreams and shop around at your leisure! Try to make it fun----and take your time.
Now, I do want to congratulate you on the pregnancy. I know the timing stinks, but when this is said and done, it will likely be seen by you as a blessing and you will embrace this child and the situation, as the months go by.
One day at a time. You have all the right in the world to feel frustrated, disappointed and angry at this point. Don't deny your true feelings-----feel them, cry, yell, punch pillows, whatever you need. You won't be a bad person to feel angry at this point about the unplanned pregnancy and loss of the home you wanted. But....Eventually, things WILL look up.
As I look back on all the frustrations and tragic situations in my life, I can honestly say, most all worked out the right way, and there was a reason for most of them. If I have learned anything in my life, it is this: There is very little we can't work around, through, or past to be in a better place, later on, if we are patient and perservere.
I wish you the best. Take good care of yourself that that wee one to come.
