melissa, I was in almost the exact same boat 9 months ago. I'm 40, baby stuff was all given away, dh was asking around to find a dr. to get snipped and we had a birth control fail. We were blindsided and it was very hard to wrap our heads around...there was a lot of ambivalence on my part for most of the pregnancy for many different reasons. Now we have a wonderful little new kid in our family and we are absolutely in love with him...but it was a huge adjustment emotionally, mentally and physically to make.
It's okay to have those negative feelings.
