With her third!
Mmm hmm, she really is despite the use of birth control.
Yeah, it’s a total surprise
I’m sure there’s a lot to process. I know this was unexpected. But…
Awww, she has a baby growing inside her! A new life! I am so stoked for her! I am completely envious too. I LOVED being pregnant, and by now it’s no secret: I am going through withdrawals! Consider this: my 4 Aumies are each less than 2 years apart, and my “baby” is now 22 month old. This is the longest period of motherhood I’ve ever gone without being pregnant while simultaneously nursing or potty training a wee one!
You see, announcing that you’re pregnant (again) is like an open-invitation for both loved ones and strangers to dole out comments and opinions without thinking. A pregnant mama can be downright fearful of people’s reactions to her news, whether it be work or the in-laws or her own partner! It is the most unnecessary stress on one-with-child, especially when it’s the second, third, or beyond… especially when you have them back to back!
The next time someone announces they’re pregnant (again) to you, just stick to the old adage, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything
And my advice for moms trying to figure out exactly how to tell their bosses, friends, or family that they’re pregnant (again), is to simply start out, “I have some good news!” Then you’ve set the tone and helped them know that you are happy and would welcome their happiness for you.
Trust me. I’ve been there. And if I announce I’m pregnant for the fifth time, you’ve been warned.
