Expecting (2): Not Expecting

We were not in the least prepared for a big event like this. Thinking of having a baby was to be postponed for about a year due to many reasons. I've always believed that any couple should wait some time before deciding to have children to make sure that they're really getting along so well, and that they're willing and ready to make a happy family together. Secondly, the first year of marriage could be the perfect (and only) chance for newlyweds to enjoy their new life together, go out and travel.. before becoming parents with all the responsibilities to worry about. And finally, in our case, we were not yet sure whether we were going to stay in Turkey or move to another country, so it was important to settle down first before thinking of adding a new member to the family.

Now that it happened, we can't but accept heartily and be very thankful for the gift that God has granted to us.

I know what you're saying, since I was in the same situation when I git married..the plan was to at least enjoy one year without children..since, you know, once they're there..you can't send them back:) after 4 months of marriage we were certainly not prepared for a pregnancy..all the mixed feelings were far too emotional for me, since I really did not want to be pregnant..but when I started having some complications, we felt how badly we want this baby..we started blaming ourselves for being reluctant about it in the first place..and now, seven years on, we know for a fact this baby was the best thing that happened to us..and havig her with us so early into our marriage was nothing but a blessing that brought us two closer..may you have a happy pregnancy and a healthy beautiful baby!
