From morning sickness to mood swings, the first trimester is unlike any other, and we at Pregnancy Stories want to hear about it! Keep us informed about your first pregnancy experiences, especially those pregnancy symptoms, fetal development, and, of course, your baby's first ultrasound! We can't wait to hear from you!
I am three years older than my husband. We met when I was 27 and he was 24. We married 4.5 months after meeting because we knew we were each other's soulmates. Early in our relationship I told him that I wanted to start having kids as soon as possible because I felt that my hormones were changing. The consistency of my periods was a little odd (color, moisture, ect.). Of course, my husband being a young buck told me not to worry because we were both young and healthy. So I held off on pushing the issue until one of my long time girlfriends who was in the same track of life that I was in (a few years into her career but ready to start a family) told me she was pregnant. This made me want to also start trying so I told my husband and he hesitated. Because he is younger than me, he wanted to get his feet a little more wet in his career space. Finally after some convincing, I told him that it can't hurt to at least try. When we didn't get pregnant right away, I know he started to feel a little regret and worry. We had been trying for 9 mos. with no success. We even went to an infertility seminar and were scheduled to see fertility specialists this Monday. I too, like some of the other story submitters, have spent a small fortune on pregnancy tests. After so many negatives over the last year, I was in disbelief to see two lines this past week. I had to take 4 take home tests just to convince my self that this is really happening!!! My breasts are a little tender but I think the first few symptons (aside from not starting my period because I was irregular anyway) were fatigue, difficulty focusing and what seemed like a stomach flu about to begin. For everyone TTC, don't lose hope!!!
An unknown blessingI met my husband 4 years ago and he decided not to have any more children because he already has 3 and I was heartbroken. Over the past year we have been trying and nothing is happening. I am worried and I know that if I don't calm down I will never have one.
Filled with fearMy husband and I experienced our first pregnancy and misscarriage this past summer. It was devastating. It was complicated, as I had to take a medication to induce labor, the doctors said I would be fine, but ended up with an infection in my uterus. We have been praying for healing and peace since then, and of course, for good news. Last night I tested, honestly not expecting to be as I did not feel pregnant. I tested positive! I thought I would be so happy, but all the worry and anxiety just came flooding back. I haven't even really processed that this could end in a healthy baby, but more worried about when the miscarriage will happen. I know that God desires good for our lives, and that our desire for children comes from Him, but I am still swamped with worry.
Trying...but nothingMy husband & have been trying to fall pregnant for only about 3 months now and every month we get negative results. I have not been on any contraceptives for about 4years so I don't see why I can not fall pregnant, I am too scared to even go to my GP as I am scared of bad news even though there is no history of anyone in the family that has ever battled to fall pregnant or any complications...
I have tried the mucus story this month so we are waiting patiently for the time that I should come on to see if I skip...but if its negative once again, what does anyone suggest I do?????
Please HelpOk I am writing this story because I am so confused at the moment and I really would like opinions PLEASE! Ok well I am almost 4 weeks late for my period now and I did have unprotected sex on the 30th of September which was exactly 2 weeks after my last period and I haven't since got a period at all. So really I have missed one which was due 2 weeks after contreception and I am meant to get one this friday 10/11/06. I did have spot belleding about 4 days ago and it lasted for 2 days and now nothing. I don't really have sore boobs although i am still breastfeeding my 2 year old and when he feeds it can be painful sometimes. I do have a little bit of nausea here and there and I feel sooo bloated! I have done 2 home pregnancy tests but both told me Negative so I am very confused. Could anyone please help me here. I am thinking if unprotected sex happened 5 weeks ago it would really only make me about 3 weeks pregnant if I am is that right?
