The first trimester of pregnancy is a time filled with excitement and celebration. But it can also be a period of difficult changes, both physical and emotional. 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!
What if . . .
I am 25 and my husband of 2 years is 29. Our lives up to this point have been perfect, he just got a 9-5 monday to friday with benefits job, I have a part time job and have quit smoking.
So about 4 months ago we decided that we would start trying to start a family. I thought that it would happen right away and for the past three months it has been nothing but heart-wrenching disappointment!
I am afraid that the abortion I had when I turned 19 is making impossible for us to conceive! What if . . .
Trying for a Miracle about 26 yearsI am 42 and was married for 12. I have been trying to get pregnant since I was 18 and still.
I have been feeling much different and had all the tests to see if I was. For 1 month I had my period 3x and that was the first. Everyone says that I am but my brother and this would make me the happiest female in the world. My doctor is so confused because my boobs are so tender for about 1 1/2 months but all my tests came out negative and that hurts mentally.
I pray for a little one and for all the females that are going through what I am. I cry every night just hoping.
Kidney Infection or PregnantI recently went to the emergency room due to lower and upper back pain and pain in my abdomen. From what the docs and nurses could tell it was more than likely that I had a kidney infection or appendicitis.
So they took all the proper test & asked all the proper questions, then some how based on all tests and questions came to the conclusion and diagnosis that I was currently about 3-4 weeks Pregnant.
TRYING TO FALL PREGI posted a comment a month ago, so I'm just updating... :) I went off the pill on 8th Aug, and had a withdrawal bleed on the 10th for 2/3 days. I've been wondering how going off the pill would affect my body, and how long my body would take to adjust and start periods again, I've read that some women take 6 months before they have their own periods again!! I started yesterday (10th sept)!!
I don't know if this is normal, to start so quickly - on time, a month after going off the pill, but I've been eating according to Mary-Anne Shearer, and my body is obviously reacting :) If you havent heard of her, she's a health woman who has spent 30 yrs studying and living what she's found out , about food and eating, she is living proof of what she teaches and has a FANTASTIC figure, and health, so this past 2 months I've been following what shes' advised - basically LOTS of water, one meal a day just fruit, and only one protein a day, and LOTS (75%) fruit and veggies a day, as much as you like, and a bit of exercise every day - even if just walking.
It regulates yr body and EMOTIONS (hooraaay lol), and has really worked for me and my husband! If you eat really well your periods actually become quite light and you don't feel like yr bleeding to death every month lol. Takes a while though for your emotions to get normal and in control (instead of PMSey all the time from going off the pill) but it's SO worth trying this ladies, It does wonders for yr figure after a long time too, it can make yr apple figure disappear, and give you a great body! It takes about a year for you to get yr cravings out of your system and to stick to it properly, but its a WAY OF EATING & LIFESTYLE more than a diet!
Anyway, I think it is a part of why I started my period only a month after going off the pill, and I'm sure I will fall pregnant SOON because my body is really healthy. Ill post as soon as I know :)
TTC our firstI am 26 and my husband is 28. We have been ttc our first child for 3 months. After educating myself about conception and the chances of conceiving each month, I was amazed. I always assumed it would happen immediately. You try to avoid pregnancy your whole life up until this point and thow out all the contraceptives and then nothing. Every month revolves around my ovulation. I spend the first 2 weeks waiting to ovulate and then the last two weeks obcessing over the thought of pregnancy. I am trying to relax, but it is driving me insane. I have spent a small fortune on pregnancy tests. I am so impatient. I test before I should and inspect the test for a hint of a line. I have even taken the test apart to see the chem strip more clearly. Everyone I know thinks I am crazy for obcessing about it so much, but they all have kids or are not ttc.
