Hi, my name is Kelly and I'm 18. I found out I was pregnant about 2 weeks ago.

At first I was nervous, but now I'm excited. At first my parents were furious, but now they are getting over it and helping me get through it since my bf isnt here for me.

I have my first doc. appointment on March 31st and I'm so exicted! I'm just scared that I'm going to have a miscarriage, 2 of my friends have been pregnant before and have had miscarriages, I am praying that it doesnt happen to me. I've been so sick lately and it sucks!

I can't wait til this passes haha.


Love and Prayers for All the Beautiful Bellies Out

Thank you all wonderful women for your stories. Many are very inspiring and it feels good to know (I live in a small town) that so many women are feeling just the same as I am.

I am only five weeks but also scared and worried about carrying my beautiful baby to term. I have had the mild cramping (which can be scary), mood swings and fatigue but woke this morning feeling like I had just won the lottery and been built the house of my dreams.

For many years I was in an abusive relationship with a horrible man who forced me to have many abortions, It was horrible and I gave up on ever having a child of my own. I even thought from the abortions that I would never be able to conceive or carry again.

I have been dating my current boyfriend for four years and just last week I found we were pregnant. At first, he was really scared and tried to break up with me (promising to help financially with the child) but we went straight into counseling and he has now gotten over his fear and is being as supportive and loving as I could hope for. I have faith that we will make it and be good parents to this child.

I would like to say to all those mothers-to-be out there without supportive partners to believe in yourselves and your ability to cary the pregnancy alone, and try to get the fathers into some kind of therapy. All I expected was that my partner would learn better how to communicate so we could be friends throughout this experience and found instead that his own fear was keeping him from being the man he wanted to be.

At 34 years old, this will be my first child and I pray it will be happy and healthy although I am nervous about so many things: the father, the occasional cramping, working to support myself throughout this process and what my family will think about me having a baby out of wedlock but I have so much faith (it's all coming from inside).

Hang in there mommies! And good luck to us all!


First pregnancy

I just found out I am 4 weeks pregnant.

I am already experiencing nausea and it really is all day. I have a horrible craving for chicken wings and I feel really tired. This is my first pregnancy and I am very excited and happy despite all the unpleasant side effects!

I am worried though of the risk of misscarriage and pray that everything will go well. I can't wait to get to the second trimester so I can enjoy it a bit more and start telling my family and friends!


So so confused right now......

This is my 5th pregnancy. I have 3 kids from a 10 year relationship and 1 abortion. I was celibate for 3+ years until I met this "great" guy. We clicked, dated, and eventually I found myself having sex with him. Sometime during sex either he took the condom off or it slipped off and BAM Im first sexual experience in 3 years...and I get pregnant. Well after we had sex, he stopped talking to me. So now Im about 6 weeks along, nauseous, tender breasts and so dang on confused.
I cant decide if I want to have this baby or not. I mean I've dreamt about this baby and even given him a name(yes I know its a boy). But I dont think the "father" wants me to go through with the pregnancy. Im going to see my doctor next week...and I've given myself until then to decide. But Im extremely confused. I just dont know what to do.
