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!
There's always a reason for everything
I've been married 5 yrs this Nov 2006 and we started trying to get pregnant in June 2005. We both didn't think we were ready before because we were both too young and not ready. But now that we've decided that it's the right time to have a baby, luck is not on our side. since we've started trying, every month before my period was due, i've been getting 'pregnancy signs' like constantly feeling nauseous and being sensitive with certain smells. This has NEVER happened before we started wanting a baby.
Yet, month after month, i get my periods and feel terribly disappointed. I'm just surprised why I keep getting this feelings like i'm pregnant every month!! Friends and families told me don't think too much about it and it will happen. But it's a vicious cycle because i'm still not pregnant therefore i think about it a lot (and maybe because i'm thinking about it alot makes me not pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!) I am going crazy!!
I've discovered a prayer to St Jude (prayer for the hopeless and desperate cases). Since I've started praying, i've calmed down and could see things clearly. Maybe i'm just not meant to be pregnant yet. Maybe it will happen one day. But i will keep on trying.
For those of you who are already pregnant, i'm really happy for you. I hope my husband and I will share the same happiness one day.
We've tried and triedMy husband and I have been married for 8 years and have been trying to conceive for 6. Between his low sperm count and my pcos, it's been a long haul. It hasn't been with out its high moments of faith from God. Lately, for the last 2 months I've been having pregnancy symptoms. I've had them before and they went away, but this time it has been crazy.
I know what the others are talking about with the hot flashes and cold spells. I will either be burning up or too cold most of the time. I keep having these symptoms: very first ones were burning, sensitive nipples and slight heartburn, later came nausea on & off, dizziness, slightly decreased libido, hot/cold flashes, mood swings, bad smells of things, low back pain, bigger belly. I feel like I have them all.
My gyno. said that my body is just thinking it's pregnant. Well, I've done that before, but not like this. I do know if it's just some fluke my body has got into and I know that I will be pregnant. If I'm not now, I will be!!! I've never had a miscarriage, so I don't know that pain.
I do know the pain of watching others be pregnant and have babies. You just have to keep the faith and know that God knows all things and has a reason for everything. I have already seen one reason for it as it has brought me closer to God and to my husband.
I have been doing fertility treatments for about 6 months now. I have PCOS. Last cycle in was on bed rest for 2 weeks, because of hyperstimulated ovaries. But I just think of it as one cycle at a time and wanted to offer encouragement to the women who are actively trying to get pregnant. Think positive!
JealousyI am struggling with getting pregnant. My husband and I have been married for four years, and have wanted children the entire time. I guess I always thought it would just happen without any special effort. We have been actively trying for about 7 months with no success, and my doctors are not especially encouraging because of some health issues.
I am so jealous of other women sometimes. I have a sister in law who just announced that she is 4 months along with her second pregnancy, and her baby is only 8 months old! I can't even look at her right now.
Month after month I hope, then wonder, then check, then reap the disappointments of another period. It is becoming difficult to keep the faith. Am I not meant to be a mother?
I am writing now because I have just started getting an extremely peculiar feeling in my lower abdomen, and I hesitate to connect it with the possibility of pregnancy because I've never heard anyone talk about anything like it. It's like. . .bubbles? Like a little stream of soda bubbles that you see rush up the side of a glass. I feel it quite frequently, especially when I lean on something like a counter. Has anyone ever heard of this? Is this something I should see a doctor about? It's not painful or anything. I'm a little nauseated, but I've always had a sensitive stomach, so I'm not sure that's something to consider as relevant.
bad news....well, now i really don't know what to say... the result was negative. that's a very bad sign because it indicates the health problems i was hoping were no longer a threat and are being treated are in fact still a problem... and with irregular periods, i may actually be on the road to infertility. crushed is a severe understatement, and my fiance's half a planet away. i'm terrified of the implications of all of this.
today's st. patrick's day... i think i need far more than a little irish luck right now.
when i was with my fiance we were fighting because he's scared that a pregnancy could potentially kill me... after all of this, i'm afraid i agree with him.
best of luck to the rest of u... and please pray for me.
happy st. patrick's day
