Baby #2, New Job and Really nervous
Carleysmom posted:
It's been a few years since I was on this board but it really helped me before. My daughter will be 4 next month. I always said I wanted two kids, well that time has come. I took two tests a week ago and both were without a doubt POSITIVE. I am completely freaked out. I had a great pregnancy with my daughter, no complications but had a miscarriage in 2010. This pregnancy feels like it did with my daughter so I hope everything is going to be okay..

I am completely freaked out because I just started a new job in December after being with the same company for 8 years. I know this is awful to think but I don't want people to think differently of me at the new job or treat me differently. I left my previous employer for more opportunity and I'm afraid this will affect my chances here. What an awful thing to think, I know.

I am a firm believer in everything happens when it happens for a reason. I don't have much of a support system besides my husband and daughter so I didn't know where to turn. He teases me and says I'm just being hormonal but this is really hard.

I hate being pregnant because I am so self conscious (which also sounds ridiculous). Not feeling well and being tired all of the time isn't helping.

Am I being ridiculous.. I think it's just the lack of support.. I don't know.. Thanks everyone.
