Your emotional response
I have had many conversations with women who have just discovered that they are pregnant and their reactions range from elation to mild panic. Here is a selection of the feelings that are expressed more frequently:
-Help-i hadn't thought it would happen this quickly
-Can I afford a baby?
- I don't believe it
-I shouldn't have that glass of wine after work
-What have I let myself in for?
Even if you have been planning your pregnancy for some time, you may feel daunted as the consequences begin to sink in. Added to the reaction is a cocktail of pregnancy hormones coursing through your bloodstream that is enough to make anyone feel emotionally unpredictable.
What was your first reaction when finding out?
