The first trimester of pregnancy is a time filled with excitement and celebration. But it can also be a period of difficult changes, both physical and emotional. From morning sickness to mood swings, the first trimester is unlike any other, and we at Pregnancy Stories want to hear about it! Keep us informed about your first pregnancy experiences, especially those pregnancy symptoms, fetal development, and, of course, your baby's first ultrasound! We can't wait to hear from you!
Pregnant on birth control?
I'm 23 years old and have been married a little over a month and I think maybe I've been feeling the early symptoms of pregnancy. I'm tired all the time (I mean I almost fell asleep standing up in the shower! lol!), I almost constantly have headaches, I cry at the drop of a hat, and I eat everything in sight. But there have also been times when just the thought of a granola bar makes me want to throw up. Not to mention having to run to the bathroom several times a day, even in the middle of the night (I never had do that before).
I don't know if it's just my mind, or side effects of the pill, or the fact that I am pregnant. I've been paranoid from the start that the pill's not going to work. Expecially after reading message boards where women tell of getting pregnant (sometimes several times) while on this pill!
My period's not due for another week so we'll see what happens. So much to think about! But to be honest, I would be so excited!
Seeking Comforting WordsFirst of all, I wanted to congratulate all of the expecting mothers.
This is my first time writing and I am in desperate need of either suggestions, advise or just some comforting words form anyone.
I've been with my partner for approximately4 to 5 years. We've never used protection and I haven't gotten pregnant.
My partner as three kids from his previous marraige, and I've been pregnant once before years ago, but terminated the pregnancy (WHICH I'VE REGRETED EVERYDAY FOR 7 YRS.)
My gyn sent me to a specialist and I had a Hysterosalpingogram done on Monday 7/31/06, which should my left fallopian tube blocked.
I just started tracking my ovulating days, but I don't know what else to do.
A surpriseMe and my boyfriend had planned on having kids, but not for a while. i'm 20 now and i had lost my insurance to get a refill on my birth control, and i missed my first period and didn't think anything of it, i usually don't have regular periods, plus i was off my birthcontrol so i know that was messing with my body too.
well the next month came and i was 3 days late on my period, so i figured i'd wait a couple more days but i kinda new i was, i had the nausea, i was tired all the time, my boyfriend didn't even think anything of it, but i just didn't want to find out for sure. i was scared, it's not what i really wanted at the time.
well after a couple more days i took a test and a positive mark it was. and i am now 4 months pregnant i heard my baby's heart beat at 3 months and i cried it was the happiest moment in my life, me and my boyfriend are very happy, and he's very excited about the baby, as well as me
Don't get discouragedI am almost 25 and my husband will be 29 this year. We concieved our first child 2 months after we met. I had some bad complications with his birth he was born at 7 months and weighed 3 lbs. 10 oz., the whole story is in labor and delivery.
Anyway, after all of the complications we were scared to death to try for another child but we knew that eventually we wanted another one. I wanted to wait until at least our first was out of diapers before trying again. Well, lo and behold he finally got out of diapers. So we put the situation in God's hands and started trying. After 3 years of failing I decided to go and see my ob/gyn to fing out why,
I had some tests run and some ultra sounds done and I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Basically I had cysts on my ovaries and they were not producing any eggs. The doc put me on fertility meds. Still no pregnancy. I lost some weight and that didn't help either. I thought maybe my hubby's soldiers weren't marching right because he works in a steel mill very close to the heat and that tends to lower their count. Well we ran into marital problems and during all of these problems I started to feel funny. My breasts were so sore, I had heard that was a sign of an oncoming menstral cycle, however I had never had that symptom before.
I waited awhile, by this time I had given up on thinking that I would ever have another child, and my period never came and I was getting more tired by the day and my breasts felt horrible. I was constantly wearing a sportsbra even to bed because they hurt so bad. I finally got up the nerve to take a test. I took it and before I could set it back down on the counter there were 2 pink lines!
I was extatic! With the problems we were going through though I was also a little worried. Things have worked out now hubby and I are doing much better. Our first child will be 6 in August and our second will be born in early March, as of right now...lol... A little worried about the big age difference, but my son is so excited about having a brother or a sister. He wants a sister, I just want a healthy baby and to be able to go full term this time.
So don't get discouraged if it takes awhile, heck it took us 4 years to finally become pregnant again. It seems like when I finally stopped thinking about it it happened. I had also just thrown out all of my maternity clothes and old baby clothes...lol... So good luck to all of you trying and if it's meant to be it will happen!
Still trying....My husband and I are trying to get pregnant for the past 6 months. Every month I have some symptoms of pregnancy. But it always turns out to be negative. I'm really depressed and very anxious too. My doctor told me that I should not get anxious at all when we are ttc. But its almost impossible not to get anxious. Most of my friends and my family members got pregnant in their first or second month of trying. Guess you need that lucky star!!!!!!!!
Hoping that I would be blessed with a baby someday.....good to know that I'm not alone.
