Hi. I'm 26 and been married for 6 years. I have a son who's 8 months old.

Hi. I'm 26 and been married for 6 years. I have a son who's 8 months old. I am now 3 months pregnant and in complete and utter shock. We only had unprotected sex once. It took me years to conceive my first child and now I will have 2 under 2. Help!!! We were planning another child, but we were going to wait a few more years. One moment of madness has lead to all of this. Be careful!!! Editor’s note: Thanks for writing in…We do tend to think that life is under our control, don’t we? Somebody suggested we actually only have about 15% control of our lives! Such disruptive change can be unsettling, scary and disturbing. It’s important to acknowledge and honour the emotions you feel – both negative and positive – about this change. In time, you will adapt and reconfigure to absorb this change in your life – and enjoy your two children - but if you need any support at all, get in touch with your local centre, the helpline or Online Advisor.
