Knocked Up Again. Oh Hi There… I'm Molly

By Molly Thornberg |

Hi My Name is Molly

HELLO there. I thought i’d kick off my time here at Babble with an intro.  A getting to know you before you judge me and leave nasty comments.. I’m kidding, I know you are TOO nice to do that. So here it is, the who, what, when…

The Who:

Hi. My name is Molly.

**Hi Molly**

I’m 32 and knocked up for the 2nd year in a row with my 4th child. I specialize in stupid photos and silly faces (or a hand, depending on mood) when a camera is placed in front of me.

Example A.

Knocked Up

I warned you.

To me, it’s all about family . These are my other WHO’s. It all starts with baby #1.

My husband and I have been married since I was 19, he was 21. Fortunately he had a good job, we quickly bought a house and were ready to start this baby thing.

Infertility Strikes

After trying 4 years to have a baby the old fashion way, we decided to see an infertility specialist. After 2 rounds of Clomid, we conceived our 1st child.

Z is now 7 and is our princess. AKA the only girl in the house, minus a girl dog.

Z, she also makes cheesy faces like her MOM!

I Got Pregnant While On Birth Control

We were over the moon with this cute little thing. She was spoiled rotten. I was on birth control. Aunt flow didn’t show up. Confused, I peed on a pregnancy test and found out I was pregnant – again. We still laugh because there is no messing up (we thought) using the ring fort birth control – but God had plans for us and our boy E who is now 5.

The Middle Kid, E

E, the sweetest boy - heart him!

4 Years of Trying for Baby #3

After having E, who was the absolute dream baby (he slept thru the night at 3 weeks people!) – we decided to have a third. Well we should know better then to try to decide anything. After 4 years of trying, we conceived our 3rd, baby I. He’s now 11 months.

Our 11 month old baby.... for now

Worth the wait!

I'm Knocked Up Again

So #4 – we wanted a large family, 4 kids sounded perfect. I mean, my husband was raised Mormon. I was raised Catholic. While we are both non-denom Christians, we should honor that religious heritage with a big, huge family – RIGHT?  So here’s the plan. We would wait for the baby to get out of diapers, make sure all our ducks were in a row – then we’d have a fourth child. HA! Again, there goes with us TRYING.

BAM. In early January, I was in the doctor’s office laying on the ultrasound table. Just days earlier a pregnancy test showed 2 lines, which typically means PREGNANT. But I had just had a kid that we had tried 4 years to have that kid. There was NO way I could of magically gotten pregnant, not this time!

The tech does his thing with the ultrasound device – and on the screen we see a baby. Not a bean or what appears to be a clump of cells like we usually see in the first ultrasound – this kid looked REAL. We are talking hands, moving legs and all!  I was 10 weeks pregnant. CRAP, I’M PREGNANT. AGAIN. (and by CRAP I mean, yay!) And wait, how am I 10 weeks pregnant and just finding this out. *sigh*

STUCK IN MY BELLY

The Baby Daddy

Besides being a mom to my lovies, I’m the wife to Sean – who is my rock and baby daddy. When anyone asks me how I do it, I tell them it’s all because of him.

Well IT IS (part) his fault that I am knocked up (for 4th time, did I mention that?) – but I mean seriously he is the glue that binds the family together. We’ve been married for 13 years this year. He is the yin to my yang – the left brain to my right brain. You get the point.

The man who is responsible for all of the above.

When not being mom or a wife, I work full-time as Director of Digital Media facilitating the web, social media and e-marketing of a live events company. And when I’m not doing that, I blog at digitalmomblog.com and being the digital mom that I am – I tweet regularly @digitalmolly. Smell a theme here? If you guessed DIGITAL, you win!

The What:

I’m stoked to be sharing this adventure with you, as well as all kinds of fun “being pregnant” deets.

The When:

This baby is 18 weeks – we’re delivering late July. 4th kid, yes I’m inducing – don’t make me explain on my first post!

Okay. I’m done.

Now your turn. Tell me about YOU. GO!

    I am a mom of 6 -yes, 6. I have decided I will make myself a t-shirt which primarily says, “yes, they are ALL mine, no, i didn’t start at 13, YES – I KNOW what causes it, and no, I am not Catholic though I used to be…..” I LOVE my children & can’t imagine life without a single one of them. They are 22, 19, 16, 13, 12, and 21 months – yea, yea, I know, I started OVER at 41 but none-the-less, she is an amazing blessing who makes my day and her siblings love, love, love her. I think a big family is beautiful and I am TOTALLY sick of people who tell me it’s time to stop now or ask if I am done yet, I may be mentally done at times but my body is still able – maybe God isn’t done giving them to me. Obviously I must be doing something right in his eyes, huh??!! LOL Have a very blessed day, Molly! Best wishes to you and your family!

    Hello Molly! I have just turned 33 and am having my 5th child! I am on my 7th pregnancy though. I had my 12 year old daughter and then we decided to try again and I ended up miscarrying. Then after a few months of waiting, we were ready to jump back on that horse. I then had my son who is now 9. I thought I was done having children, especially after I divorced. I was on birth control and along came my now 5 year old son! I was so blessed to have him. He has taught me the most about life out of all of my children! Then again while on birth control, no period came, and I now have my beautiful son who will be 2 in May! So my fiance and I decided that we wanted to have a big family, we were not really trying, but were not trying to NOT get pregnant either and when my youngest was 6 months old we found out that I was pregnant again! Unfortunately, that pregnancy also ended in a miscarriage. So we tried and tried and tried and finally 8 months later I got pregnant again! I am now 32 weeks pregnant and I am with Wendy here, I am sick of people asking if I am going to stop, because I am the one raising them, so why does someone else care how many children I have? I’m not giving them to someone else to raise. I actually have a maternity t-shirt that says “Yes, I’m pregnant again and yes, I know what causes it!” Good luck to you and your family, you have beautiful
    children.
