what its like for me

this is what its like for me... i am 15 years old and i am pregnant. when i told my mother about me being pregnant she excepted it... but when my dad found out he looked at me disappointedly and called me names. i wanted both of my parents to except it but thats hard to believe. O well anyways to the point. I suprized my boyfriend of 7 months about me being pregnant.(you know that it takes 2 to tango, right). i just went to his house the night i found out and i just pulled the pregnancy test out of my purse and said here he looked at it and saw the printed word PREGNANT, you would not believe how scared he was... ya he held me and we cried in each others arms but after that night he wont answer my calls wont write me back on myspace i even went to his house and he just looked out the window and closed the blinds. and locked his door... i guess he is ashamed to admit he is gonna be a father. i try not to talk to other guys but hell if my baby daddy wont pay attention to me and his baby there is someone else out there that will even though its not their baby.... but idk its bad... i love my baby daddy and it seems like its all my fault for this happening. i just wish it will get better... but hey ill write some more kater going to my other class...



So I am 22 have been with my boyfriend for 3 years was not expecting a baby at all. I am not sure how far along I am I just took 3 pregnancy tests today they all came back positive. I started suspecting something was amiss when i was feeling sick in the morning alot of people would go straight to assuming they were pregnant, but i thought i had the flu as it is going around right now. But then smells certain smells i couldn't stand them mostly garlic even thinking about it makes me want to gag. Then i had a weird dream random i know, but I took a pregnancy test in the morning and positive. Through interent research i have determined i could be any where from 4 to 6 weeks. unfortunatley the bf is working right now out of town, so i havent had the opprotunity to tell him and have been mulling with the news by myself. So i decided to share it.


9 weeks pregnant

I'm 18, and 9 weeks pregnant. The baby wasn't planned and me and my boyfriend have only been together for about 3 or 4 months. We both wanted to keep this baby. Telling our parents and family was probably the hardest thing to do. My boyfriend's family were/are very supportive. However, initially my mum wasn't, but now I think she is accepting the idea and is coming to terms with it.
Me and my boyfriend have already had a doctors appointment, blood test and ultrasound. Seeing our baby and its heartbeat was amazing.
Recently, the last 2 or so weeks, I've been having bad sickness. Not just in the morning, but at all times of the day and night. Its made doing things difficult, and I've had to take time off work. I feel less sick when I'm laying down as compared to standing.
Which has led to arguments between me and my boyfriend as he feels I may be acting lazy, but I just feel fatigued all the time and feel like taking it easy, otherwise I feel like i am going to vomit all the time. I feel like sometimes he doesn't understand. Although he tries his best.
My boyfriend is currently working 5 days a week. I have a casual job and also doing a course at university.
We are trying to save up money, so we have everything already bought for the baby before he/she arrives.
We currently live at home with my mum, and will continue to do so after the baby is born.
Our baby's due date is 27/6/2011.
We are very excited to find out the sex of the baby. My boyfriend hopes its a boy. I don't mind. We've also already started discussing names.

I had my first son 4 years ago after being off my BCP for only a month. We weren't trying but he was a pleasant surprise. I had sme nausea but never vomited, was a bit tired but the pregancy went great otherwise.

I felt great after the first trimester. I read all about blighted ovums, molar pregnancies, incompetent cervix, nuchal cords, SIDS. Every step of the way I was stressing about what could happen. Everything has been fine.

So we decided for baby number 2. I stopped my pills again and the firest few months went by with no success. Around month 5 I started taking prenatal vitamins, and B6 supplements along with Evening primose oil. I was taking 100mg of B6, 2 primrose oil tablets and the prenatal vitamin for a total of 5 pills a day.

After about 6 weeks I said forget. 6 months of stresing and trying to time my cycles and increase my fertile cervical mucous was getting to me.

But at month six I was waiting for my 28 day cycle to begin with my period and nothing. The next day I waited again and finally I took a test and it was positive. I will be 8 weeks pregnant on monday. I was been queasy everyday and I wear a bioband for the acupressure just to help.

Boobs are pretty sore too but nothing unlik PMS. They look and feel heavier and bigger too. So I am back to reading stories of molar pregnancies and blighted ovums and preparing for the worst but hoping fr the best. Good luck to all!
