Maniella Rose

A couple months ago, me and my boyfriend, Don, got pregnant. I'm 14 and he's 16. We were happy and scared. I told my best friend Allie during algebra, and this jerk Joe overheard and told everyone. I heard it from Don that Joe was telling everyone I was pregnant. I got myspace messages and comments asking me if I was. I told my gramma about the rumor and she told my mom. My mom asked me about it one night and I said I didn't know if I was, just in case.

My mom was really worried then. Me and Don however were expecting a girl, though it could have been a boy, whom we would have named Don Robert IV. But we believed in our hearts it was a baby girl.

Well 2 weeks later I came home from school to find my mom holding a pregnancy test. I took it, but it didn't work. My mom told me if I was, I was to finish high school and go to college, while I sign the baby over to her. I said okay, though I wasn't going to, especially cause Don wanted her. It was my baby, not hers. Well that night, she changed her mind.

Now I was going to get an abortion. But I said I would refuse to go and I'd go live with my cousin Amanda if she tried to. That night, even though I was positive I was, because of my symptoms and I was starting to show, it said Negative. I called Don at 10 in the middle of George Lopez, crying. He came over and told me it was okay. We decided it was a miscarriage from me being so young and active, not to mention my school has about 4000 kids, your bound to get hit in the stomach. She was due in July. Her name was Maniella (Man-Yell-A) Rose.

About a week ago, we decided to try again, and it might have worked. My brother turns 12 this tuesday (its thursday now) and if I don't have my period by then I am pregnant. We're going to stick with Don Robert for a boy, his family name tradition, and for a girl, he wants Melanie Nicole, though I want Alexis Jayne, A.J. for short. Hopefully it will work this time. =)


Depressed and pregnant

I am so excited to be pregnant. My husband and I had been trying for a while. With a little assistance, we are pregnant. However, i am so depressed. Anyone I try to discuss this with, thinks I am crazy because I have been wanting this for so long and gone through some rough tests.

I am excited, scared and everything but i am depressed. I cannot understand it. Has anyone gone through this?
I feel like this is a gift from GOD, i do not want him to think i am not eternally grateful.
I really am.


1st trimester experience

Hello, I am exactly 10 weeks and 2days. Even though I experienced morning sickness since the 5th week of pregnancy-- today the sickness has seemed to be slacking off a little. I noticed that when ever I stay around the house, I would feel more sick.

When I get out the house to go to work, church or to other functions, I feel much better. It is a struggle to get up every day and put on my clothes with out feeling sick. Once I do it and push my way out the door I feel better.

Even though it's hard not to mention how I feel, I don't want to complain because I thank God for this great opportunity--


Our First Baby

On January 3rd, 2008 my husband asked me to go take a pregnancy test cause he thought I was pregnant..I have wanted a baby since I was a little girl, but I miscarried in the very beginning of December 2007.Well I took the pregnancy test and I thought it was negative so I showed my husband and he was like "Uhhh there is another line..!"

I was shocked,so shocked I didn't believe him. And he showed me the test and there was actually a very faint "+" sign. My heart dropped, I was so excited! Well, we are both hoping for this pregnancy to go smoothly and myself and the baby stay healthy so I carry to full-term.We aren't sure how far along I am..but at the very,very most 3 weeks.

I am constantly burping,not too hungry (but I have gotten a couple of silly cravings) and I'm ALWAYS tired!!!....and I'm going to the doctor in a couple days to make sure everything is going okay. I'll keep everyone updated!

Good luck to all!
