Shocker!

We were back from Bali yesterday evening. In the middle of last night, I felt nausea, gas was building up in my stomach and bitter bile pushed itself up to my throat. I had to go to the toilet to throw up. I thought I was getting some form of food poisoning from the trip, but then, I also thought if it was remotely possible that I was ...? In the morning, I did a test, I saw 2 lines. But then, I didn't believe myself, the test kit I have was a cheapo one, don't know if I could trust it . I went to the Dr to confirm. And the result is, yes, there are 2 lines! 2nd line is faint but visible. If all goes well, Zara will be a real 'jie-jie' (Chinese: elder sister) in early Jan. It is a shocker to me because I didn't expect it to come so soon. I was feeling a bit anxious. Another one means double the expenses; Zara is now more or less independent (can play on her own, tell me what she needs if she wants some thing), to think that I have to start all over again gives me a headache. I have not been taking care of myself (unlike when I had Zara, I was in my optimum health), will everything be ok? I love Zara with all my heart, do I still have the capacity to love another? Oh boy, what a shocker!

After the long journey, the difficulties and the things that you have to go through to have Zara, God has given you a second chance to have another child and you are worried about the double expenses, the starting over and your capacity to share your love..... You got to be joking!!!!! Why didn't you take precaution if you have all these doubts? I strongly suggest you reevaluate your situation and do not bring another life into the world if you doubt your own capacity to share your love and your concern about going through the whole process again and importantly your financial portion of it.
