Hi, wow what an experience being pregnant has been already lol. Me n my partner werent trying but we werent exactly fighting nature either, we were sort of like whatever happens happens can´t fight nature. So I found out I was pregnant about a month ago and I was beyond elated when I found out. What I didnt bargain for was the mood swings, the crying and inability to hold my bladder for long periods of time lol. So here I am 7 weeks n 2 days pregnant and even with my body going mental I am loving every minute of it. We went for an ultrasound the other day to check how far along I am, and admittedly I was extremely nervous and worried because after all what if the dr told me there was something wrong? but the dr told us that our baby is healthy and strong and growing perfectly. I was so greatful to hear that as I am currently travelling (in South America, I´m Australian, so very far from home right now). The Dr told us we are due on the 28/04/10 so lets hope that time rolls around quickly because we cannot wait to meet our beautiful baby :D


My early pregnancy experiences

My husband and I were married this past May put waited until August to go on our honeymoon. About 3 days into our honeymoon I was supposed to get my period and I was all prepared with 2 boxes of tampons and well, I didn't need them. After about 3 days of nothing I walked down to the gift shop and bought a test and it was positive. We weren't exactly trying we were at the if it happens great if it doesn't oh well stage. But, we are both Excited and can't wait! Anyway...I've been good so far (knock wood). I haven't had any morning sickness, just bloating/gas accompied with cramps. The bloating and gas is extrememly annoying. Even drinking water gives me gas...not fun. And my husband likes to joke around with me so when I start to complain he replies with a big smile on his face something like..."oh stop...your 40 hours pregnant" He gives me a good laugh! Hopefully the only probably I will have is the bloating and gas. I would rather have that than morning sickness, but only time will tell.

Good luck and best wishes to all the pregnant moms to be out there!


So excited

I am about 4 1/2 weeks pregnant with my second child. My husband and I are so excited. My first pregnancy was very hard, I literally threw up everyday from the time I found out I was pregnant until I had a C-section. I was teaching 5th grade at the time and it was quite a challenge to try to not puke until my class was out of the room, but I managed. So now I have a darling two year old son and a baby on the way.

We had been trying to get pregnant for two month and I was feeling very discouraged that it hadn't happened yet, even though I know it sometimes take much, much longer. Anyway, my husband went out for a pizza and came back with pizza and a box of two pregnancy tests. He said to go take one and I didn't want to, I didn't want to be disappointed again, but I did. And I was PREGNANT!!! I was so excited and wanted to tell someone, so he said go to go tell my parents. So I put the positive pregnancy test in the box and then in a gift bag and went and hung it on my parents door... then like a silly child, I knocked on the door and ran and hid around the corner. My dad came and looked out and looked around and FINALLY my mom came to the door to and they found the sack and looked in and found the test and my mom shreeked... she is pregnant, she is pregnant. So they were excited and I am too.

14 possibly pregnant

Hi well im 14 and really scarred. I ve had sex 3 times with my boyfriend of 15 months, I lost my virginity to him July 8th, we used a condom. Then I got a strange bleeding on the 27th to the 30th, i think it was my period. But then on the 31st I had unprotected sex twice. Then 3 more unprotected times on August 8th. It is August 22nd now and the past 8 days I've had major pregnancy symptoms. My breats hurt when I grab them and really bad when I wake up, I've had nausea for 4 days(no vomiting) bloating, everytime I get up im dizzy, and I dontknow if this is sign of pregnancy but when I get around certain smells I get very nausea and it gives me headache (very weird) and im very tired all the time. But on August 17th I started bleeding, it started off light then got to about moderate but it wasn't heavy enough to be my period and it was an extremely dark red and a little brown. It has just ended last night so it lasted 4 days. I had no cramps at all. So how possible is it that im pregnant? I don't feel pregnant but all the signs are adding up. Im supposed to get my period the 27th so im going to take an EPT on the 28th and then again the next week and the next week. But I just want to know what my chances are of beng pregnant?


Afraid to be Excited

My Husband and I have been together for about four years now and we finally tied the knot yesterday at our perfect, beautiful wedding. My husband wants nothing more than to have a baby. Considering my family history I thought it would either be very hard or impossible for me to get pregnant. We didnt use protection a couple times last month for the first time since we've been together and it was yesterday at our wedding that it occured to me I might be almost a week late but just assumed it was because of the excitement of my wedding. Just to make sure I took a test this morning and it had two very dark distinct pink lines indicating a positive. We were so overjoyed but I am so scared to be excited since 50% of all early pregnancies end in a misscarriage. I am praying so hard that everything will be okay. The only symptoms I have are swollen breasts and occasional cramping which I cant decide is a good or bad sign.
