I just turned 42. I am 8 weeks and 4 days pregnant. This is my first pregnancy. I have had very little symptoms also. My boobs were a little sore but now aren't sore at all just full and have blue veins. One day I totally freaked because I had no soreness and they didn't even seem that full. Well, when I went to the doctor everything looked great. The baby's heart was beating away. I have occassional queasiness that started at 7 weeks. Really not much at all.. however, I have big time food adversions. I think about eating and it makes me queasy. I force myself to eat because I know I need to but its not enjoyable at all. Has anyone had this? Not much sickness but food adversions? I am still very anxious especially because of my age but I pray every day.


First pregnancy and worried

I am 8 weeks along and my husband and I are very excited about this baby, and so is our family (word gets around). I have my first appt in three days and I cant wait to make sure everything is OK. See I have this friend who has had two miscarriages. Her first one she was pregnant and there was no heartbeat. Hearing this worries me sick, bc I have had all the symptoms I have been tired and boobs have been sore, I have to get up every might to go to the bathroom, I have been naseuous but nothing severe like actually getting sick. They say that morning sickness is a sign of a healthy pregnancy and I cant help but have that run through my head all the time.
I was pregnant before and I had alot of morning sickness I wonder why this is so different. I was young and I terminated the pregnancy but I can still remember how I felt and I dont feel as sick as I did then. Does this mean something?

Am I just being paronoid. I guess I will get my answer at the doctors in a few days.

It feels better to write about it. Thanks for reading!


Our Miracle Baby!

I am 39 and my husband is 45. We were married 4 years ago and each have children from our first marriages. He had a vasectomy 12 years ago after his son was born. We always had unprotected sex knowing that we could not have children together.
Well, i thought i was going through peri-menopause or something, and saw a gynecologist, went for an ultrasound, and was told i was 9 weeks pregnant. I am now almost 12 weeks, and the shock has worn off some. My husband was really in shock, considering! He believes me totally as we have both always been faithfull.
I was wondering if this has happened to any one else? I have read that it's possible, but extremely rare.
This is truly going to be our miracle baby, and my due date is the same day that my dad passed away 6 years ago.



has anyone ever experienced weird cravings such as cravings for vegetables like carrots.. i dont know if i am pregnant but everytime i peel carrots and i get the smell of carrots on my hands i just melt .. i love the smell and ive been eating so much carrots which is weird cause ive never eaten this many carrots before.. and i get this weird pain in my abdomen.. its on the sides.. one night i could be laying in bed and it'll stab in my left side so i can only lay on my right side to stop the pain, not the left not my belly not my back, just my right side to make the pain go away.. next night ill go to lay down and it'll be on the other side.. does anyone ever experience these things? what are some weird things pregnant women experience during the first couple months?
