I know i am!

Well, Iím new to all of this first of all. So hello everyone. =] Anyways, well this is totally weird if you ask me... I have never had such weird feelings in my life! So hereís the scoop... about a month ago I started taking birth control, thinking it wouldnít get me pregnant unless I was totally off of it and knew that I could.

Well, that obviously didnít work very well. Because you see, the last few weeks probably about 4 weeks... I have been feeling so different and having such weird changes going on in my body. Very tired, nauseous, pains in my lower abdomen area, mood changes like crazy, going to the restroom a lot, and many more!

I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests and one urine test at a doctor. The first time I took one, it was after two weeks, and the next day I had spotting going on for about two days. Then, the next one I took was a week and a half ago, and it said negative. Then the urine test was the next day and still said negative!

Iím sooo surprised that none of them have said positive yet because I really, really honestly "feel" pregnant!!


finally pregnant

In September 2006 I experienced a miscarriage in my 25th week. I was totally devastated to lose my son Preston. My story is posted under loss. After Preston died I desperately wanted to fill my empty arms, and for months I had been trying to get pregnant.

Two months ago I broke down at my dr's office and asked him for help. Unwillingly he prescribed Clomid. Through tons of prayers, obsession with ovulation observation and the Clomid I am happy to say I'm pregnant! I'm 5wks along and totally happy. My pregnancy is categorized as high risk because I have an incompetent cervix (this was discovered after the miscarriage) so I will have to get a cerclage.

This is the most blessed thing that has ever happened to me and I feel grateful for this miracle. I don't care about any of the symptoms that I'll experience over the next couple of months because I am just focused my goal of having my little angel in the next 35wks.

Ladies cherish this gift of life I fully intend to b/c I know what it feels like to lose something so precious. I intend to embrace every moment that I have with my angel.


I guess I'm really fertile

I have two girls ages 2 1/2 and 3 1/2. I got pregnant with my first baby the first month after my husband and I were married. I got pregnant with my second after I stopped nursing my first on my first cycle, so I never even had a period.

My husband and I decided to try for a third. I had my IUD removed last Wednesday morning and we tried Wednesday night and it worked! I could feel the pregnancy the next morning! I could tell because I felt a burning and a tingling in my breasts and extreme fatigue and I have colostrom already.

I have another week until I can take a pregnancy test, but I already know I'm pregnant. The past few days I've felt cramping in my side and mild nausea almost nonstop.

I'm so thankful to be so fertile and to be blessed to have another baby.


My second baby

My son's going to be 10 this month and I am starting all over again! I'm very excited and eager to meet this little person that is growing inside of me. A little surprise, but definitely made from love.

Was planning on starting back on the pill and was due for my period on Saturday, picked up my pills Friday to start Sunday, and no period on Saturday. I know my body too well ; ) Took a test Wednesday of that week and positive. I will be 8 weeks as of this weekend. I've gained 10 lbs already!!

I'm also very small and did show right away with my first child...bathroom visits have been far and in between also.


there is hope after all

Iím so excited. This is my first child and Iím in shock because Iíve wanted children since I was old enough to hold them in my arms.

Iíve been trying to have kids now for almost 4 years (since I was 16l -young I know) Iím 21 now and all my life I knew I was meant to be a mother. I was even getting worried that something was wrong with me and that I couldn't conceive but I guess god had a different plans 4 me.

Iím only 3 weeks but Iím so excited to be an expecting mother. To all you mothers-to-bes and ttc good luck and remember god doesn't always come when you call but he's always on time.
