    grrr

    i went to my drs appt today and i walked in and he said how can i help you terrie (let me point out that im very good friends with his daughter inlaw and son who have 2 kids 18months apart) so i smile and say im pregnant... and this LOOK came across his face like OMG/disgusted kind of face. then the convo went like this:

    Dr: 'so you're happy then?'
    Me: 'yes, we were trying for another'
    (his eyebrow raises)
    Me: 'it feels like just yesterday i was in here telling you i was pregnant with rhys'
    Dr: 'and rhys didnt put you off having another!?'
    Me: 'erm... no!'
    Dr: 'they'll only be 18 months apart you know, it will be very hard work, are you sure you can cope?'
    Me: 'yeah'
    Dr: '*sigh* i'll just get the paperwork for you to fill out for the midwife then...'

    i mean what the fuck was that all about!?

    Terrie this is such a happy time for you and hubby, please try not to let him get you down. I wouldn't even waste my time wondering WTF, I would brush it off as him being a rude so and so.

    My first born and second born are 18mths apart and yes, I was busy and tired. Having a newborn to get up to through the night and then a toddler to run around after during the day, plus normal household chores was hard work, but I LOVED it, I wouldn't change a thing. I then had my 3rd when my second was 2yrs old ( miscarried in between). So I had 3 boys under 4yrs. I am so thankful I had them close together, all that running around and lack of sleep was worth it. My boys are so close and play so well together, it is wonderful.

    You will be wonderful and you will enjoy having them so close together.
    Really what do people think, of course we know it is hard work, but the love and enjoyment is priceless.

    Don't let anyone question your ability as a person and as a mother. I am sure you will be wonderful ( and tired, lol)

    :hugs: Bek

    What an ass. Do your best to ignore him. It is none of his business, and has no impact on his life. I don't care if your children are 18 months apart or or 5 years, having children is hard period.
