Just found out

My husband and I are on our first pregnancy. We're thrilled to be pregnant. I guess it happened when we stopped trying.

We just bought some new things for our home and had decided we were content without children for now. Not a whole month later, I just took two pregnancy tests, because I missed my period, and sure enough, positive. We've already announced to our family and friends and everyone is thrilled for us, we're the first in both of our family's to bear our parents a grandchild, so it's unchartered waters for everyone.

I can't wait already to meet my baby and my husband lays on my tummy and tells the baby he loves it. I'm so excited!


the magic inside

I missed my periods for 1 week, but still I did not suspect that I was pregnant because my boyfriend is really careful.

For the last week I felt very bad; I was dizzy, very pale, tired and in a very bad mood. I bought a test just in any case, and I did it yesterday morning and it came out to be positive. At first I started crying, I couldn't believe I have a new life inside of me. I didn't feel comfortable, I couldn't stop crying. But later on I calmed down and started to feel normal and natural. I felt the magic inside.

Even though I'm only 22 I'm still gonna keep the baby, I don't think that it will make my life more difficult, I think it will make my life beautiful.

Good luck all you pregnant ladies.


I try not to worry too much

I believe that worry can cause many health problems especially during pregnancy. I

Worry causes your muscles to tense up and doesn't allow for a healthy balance of cells to form. A fetus will not benefit at all from only negative energy flow.That's my theory anyway.

So don't worry so much, your're gonna have cramps, you're gonna do a little spotting, you might have a complication but you'll get through it just fine and oh yeah - you're gonna hear a heartbeat!


All in the same boat...

I keep coming back to read everyone else's posts. I think we are all in the same boat. Iím 37 with my first pregnancy. Iím only 6-1/'2 weeks but want to scream to the world that Iím pregnant. I fear that something might happen if I tell people so we are keeping mum a little longer.

I too know people who have just gone though miscarriages and it scares me to death. I know that everyone is different and every pregnancy is different but it still scares me to death. I think that the internet can be a good place for resources but then again I think it makes the anxiety worse.

I will probably hold my breath until the first trimester is over and start to enjoy this gift from GOD. So best wishes to all you ladies out there and know that we are all thinking the same thing!


I'm spinning!

I cannot believe it (as all first timer pregnant women will say)... today we found out that I was pregnant!! I am very excited, but canít tell anyone yet.... its killing me and stressing me to no end.

My instant reaction to my doctor's positive test was to drive over to my parents and tell them, especially my mother - my best friend! My husband isnít so keen to reveal anything to our families just yet. So when is it ok to reveal and share your excitement???? Who knows?

I just want to share, as all females love to do.... I am also keen to start reading all the literature ever read about pregnancy - but was told that too much is not so good. It can make you paranoid. I shall try to limit my curiosity.

Overall, my husband and I are thrilled and are looking forward to the whole experience. I hope that I can do my baby justice as my mother did me.
