21 yrs- 11 weeks pregnantI'm 21 years old and this is my first pregnancy. The morning sickness has been absolutely miserable. It makes me wonder why anybody would do this more than once... lol. My fiance' and I were planning our wedding for May- already have everything ready, but now I'll be 6 months pregnant!!
6 weeksOne morning I got up and did my normal routine of reading the news and drinking a cup of tea... About a half hour in to it I started getting dizzy and had to run to the bathroom! Who knew you could vomit tea and water. I've always had a pretty solid stomach. I was concerned, but thinking I could be sick. After waves of nausea for another day, I went and got a pregnancy test. Positive. The first thing my fiance did was research all the possible reasons the test might be false! I was totally offended and was hoping for some relevant information when he made it a point to sit me down and tell me what he researched. He even asked if I've ever been pregnant before!! Insulting.
My first emotions this past week and a half were fear, trying to move myself into fast action ( medical coverage, move closer to mom-in-law soon to be grandma, keep working to put money in the bank)... but the fatigue has caught up and all I want to do is sleep.
I finally talked to my fiance last night and got through to him that I need him to understand I can't work so much right now. And that I need him to actively show me that he's here for me. Rather than just waiting until I ask... Once we got that conversation through... last night over a lot of crying and yelling... I can now feel happy. I just needed to remind him that he's still important in my life (although all I wanted him to do was tell me how important I am!!!) I feel happy, I can't wait to have a baby!
12 weeksI am 12 weeks pregnant today and I have had many different emotions towards this. When I first found out I was very scared and didn't really know what I wnated to do but once the decision was made I still didn't feel happy. All I could be was scared and i am still very scared. My boyfriend says he's excitied and he's been a great support but the whole not being married still bothers me. Seeing the sonogram of the baby moving was amazing and did make everything seem a little more real but also a lot more scared. I am trying to feel calm and assure myself that everything will be okay and people in worse situations have made it sowhy can't I.
I Just Knew...My pregnancy was unplanned. I had unprotected sex twice, & both times the guy "pulled out". Well, apparently he didn't pull out fast enough because I ended up getting pregnant. I 1st knew something was up when I got a yeast infection. At the time, I didn't know that yeast infections were associated with pregnancy, but when I read the Monistat 7 drug info, it said that you might possibly be pregnant. I quickly said "nah", but kept it in the back of my head. The infection happened about a week after conception. Soon after that, I noticed that my pants felt uncomfortable. I hadn't been eating any more than usual, so that also got me a little worried. Probably that same week, I noticed some light random cramping, followed by feeling full after eating faster than normal. Also, my breasts were very sore now whenever I took my bra off at the end of the day. The final straw was when I went to bed, sleeping on my stomach was uncomfortable, & that's about the only way I sleep. I had to sleep on my side. By then I was about a week late, but my period can be irregular, so that usually doesn't cause much alarm, but this time it did. That Sunday, I went & got a pregnancy test & it only confirmed what I already knew. Nausea soon followed, but I didn't vomit. I was very sensitive to smells, especially food. And I hated chocolate, which is the exact opposite of the very essence of me. LOL! I also had a decrease in appetite, which resulted in weight LOSS instead of the normal weight gain. I don't remember any mood swings because I the only mood I had was depression! The 1st trimester was definitely the worst.
