Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Pregnant and unsure how to feel

0 answers
I just found I am pregnant (probably around 4 weeks). I missed my period and took a test, which turned up positive. This wasn't planned, and I'm really not sure how to feel. My boyfriend and I have been together for over 5 years, and I am in the process of adopting my 20 month old niece. We have had her since she was 3 months old, and honestly we have just been enjoying her and our new life. We had planned to get engaged at the end of this year and married early next year. Now there is this baby??? I'm just in shock. I feel guilty not being happy and excited, but I just feels like it's all too soon, and I wasn't mentally prepared for my first pregnancy with a toddler running around too! Is this normal???
