Please dont bump into me!!!!!!!!

okay... so i wasn't doing anyhting to protect becoming pregnant but i had been for some time now so i wasn't worried. My boobs started hurting about 2 weeks before my period was supposed to start. But every day they seemed to hurt a little more than the day before. My boobs usually hurt before my period anyway so once again.... i wasnt worried. my period is usually a couple days earlier than the month before every time. so that time was approaching and still no period! The pain i felt was absolutely unbearable! i couldnt move my arms without verbally expressing how bad my boobs hurt! My co-worker presented the idea that i might be pregnant... but because i had been having unprotected sex for so long... i wasnt worried. then my period was late for the first time in forever... then i got worried! i took the test after a lot of procrastination and now let's just say i have a beautiful and bright 3 month old baby girl who brings me more joy than i could have ever imagined.

My advice to anyone whose boobs hurt so bad that you are dodging everyone who comes within 5 feet of you for fear that they might bump into them (and ur having unprotected sex of course): TAKE A PREGNANCY TEST!


I am supposed to be more excited

I found out I was pregnant about a week and a half ago. I feel awful most of the time. I work full time and go to school full time. I have never been so freakin tired in my life!!!! I think I am supposed to be more excited, dont get me wrong I am excited, but it is hard when you work 49 hours a week and feel sick. I think my boyfriend gets frustrated with me, but hopefully when the tiredness and nausea pass I will get more excited for the baby to get here.


second baby

well I am pregnant again....a little over 9 weeks! I am excited, but a little nervous about delivery.i had a great first birth 4.5 hours long all natural,not really my by the time they were finally going to give me anything it was way too really hoping this baby comes in like 2 hours....i already have a girl she'll be 1 in february,so im really hoping for a boy this time.but i will be happy no matter what as long as the baby is healthy. at least me and my husband are married now for our second child..but i am kind of scared..


i think i may be pregnant...

I have been having all the symptoms of pregnancy. The worst is that none of my clothes seem to be fitting me right. when i sit down, i have to unbotten my pants in order to be comfortable!! my boobs are sore and i've been getting really bad headaches, my lower stomach and back have been giving me a lot of pain....i don't know what to do...if i'm pregnant, I'm only 3 you think i should take a test....? or do you think it's too early for that???


First Chicken Pregnancy

I could not believe it when I found out I was pregnant. I went to my doctor for a regular pap smear and to renew my birth control, and she mentioned that she'd like me to take a pregnancy test at home before I start my new year of bc. It was something she only suggested in passing, but it was suddenly something I had to do. I bought my new pack and a test, went home and had a dream about truckloads of dancing pregnant ladies. When I woke up in the morning, I figured it was my brain reminding me to take the test before my pill. Well, lo and behold but that little + showed up. I was floored. I bought a digital test on the way to work, and took it in the office restroom. There it said, confirming my worst fears---"PREGNANT" in big letters. Luckily nobody was in the office, because I just sat at my desk and cried. When I went to the doctor's to confirm, I told them I was on birth control at the time of conception and they said "Oh, yeah, that happens more than you think." More than I think? I thought it was 99.9% effective?? How many .1% are out there?
I haven't had any breast tenderness (although they have definitely swelled) but I have had nausea like nobodies business. I'm actually losing weight (yay! I wanted to lose 10lbs anyway) because all I can eat is toast and crackers. This morning I opened the fridge and it immediately made me vomit (thank god there was nothing but water in my stomach). It doesn't help that everything smells intense. Since the initial first shock, I haven't cried at all--no emotional mood swings. Just stomach sickness. If I watch a commercial for anything meat related (except fried chicken, strangely) I have to immediately change the channel or start to gag. Which is funny, because about 2 weeks before I found out I had an itty-bitty rice-sized baby I stopped eating meat and went on a vegetarian diet. Well, the universe is definitely helping me to stick to it! (Except chicken. If I see fried chicken, my stomach stops hurting and I get a crazy craving).
And I cannot stop talking to it. Its like knowing that I'm pregnant makes me more aware of my stomach. Even my boyfriend will talk to it. And when my stomach grumbles back we joke that its the baby's first words.
I am so nervous of a miscarriage that I haven't told nearly anyone yet. I've told them I have a stomach flu and it makes me really weak, and THATS the reason why I'm not going to carry this 50lb box up these rickety stairs! Everytime someone asks me to do something I know I shouldn't (have a drink, smoke a cigarette, or use the heating blanket) I just want to scream "but I'm pregnant!"
But I'm only 7 weeks..
