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!
Me and my fiance have been together for almost 2 years. We moved in together basically straight away and he proposed after only 3 months. We have our problems like any couple all & all I have no doubts that we will be together for the rest of our lives, we're insperable and we're best friends as well as lovers. He works full time and brings in more than decent money. I work part time and am currently looking for a second part time job. We have alot of bills but they are only temporary and will be paid off by April next year.....so in January we decided to pull the goalie and let nature do it's thing. I've wanted a baby for a long time and was stoked to find out that he was as keen to get the ball rolling as I was. We are expecting our niece very soon, my partners sister-in-law (one of my closest friends) is due this coming Sunday (5 days!!!!!) and a few of our other friends are in the early-to-mid stages of their pregnancies. We can't wait to meet our niece and that's what originally got us talking about trying for a baby (he says we aren't really trying, but in my opinion if you aren't using contraception you ARE trying. But basically we're just letting nature do it's thing and when it happens it happens) It's now July and I still haven't gotten pregnant yet. I'm pretty regular I get my period exactly every 28 days the last few months. Last month I got it two days early which is a bit crazy.....and it was 2 days of a lighter coloured blood and lasted until Thursday night after 2 more days of extremely light. This was two weeks ago, now I'm tired all the time and feeling sick alot. I have had some weird cramping/pinching/stretching feelings in my lower abdomen and my back is really sore, both of which started to be persistant about 3 days ago roughly with the backpain starting two days ago... I pee alot more the last few weeks as well especially at night. I have been wondering the last few days whether my "period" was an actual period or not but I don't want to get my hopes up just to have them crushed (again! :() I think I might be looking too much into things and it just gets me disappointed when my period comes. The longer it holds off the better we will be finacially, but at the same time I wish it would happen straight away! It's been 6 months and although I know that these things can take up to year sometimes, I can't help but worry about our fertility. But I am a young healthy happy well taken care of woman and I'm sure god just has his own plans. So right now I am concentrating on eating healthy and drinking alot of water and getting reasonable exercise. I'm trying to get myself as healthy as I can be so I won't be caught off guard and have to stop things (like smoking, I've basically quit) all of a sudden and stress my body out, I think the first trimester will be enough to deal with without nicotine cravings. Fingers crossed for me!! :) :)
My three beautiful miraclesHi. My name is Nishia S. and I am thirty years old. I am not a teenage mom but I feel I am too young to have three kids. My first born is named Johnathan Isiah he is almost eleven years old. He is such a neat freak and very awesome little boy. My second child is Ja' Nya Nicole and she is six years old. She is such a smart, sweet little stubborn little girl she is my twin. My third and last born child is my princess Aariana Rose. She is three years old and she will be starting preschool this year I am so scared for my little baby to go to school. She is the funniest, prettiest little girl I have ever seen. At the daycare her nickname is cupcake. hOW CUTE!!! Anyways I just wanted to share my story with some of the young girls who are pregnant. I was nineteen when I had my first child and it was very hard for me I didnt get the education that I wanted because I had a baby I had to provide for by myself. I didnt learn my lesson and I had two more children and know it is double hard for me. I know kids are a blessing and I know they say god will never give you more than you can handle. But it is hard. If you are young with only one child go ahead and get a good education and a good job then get married and then have another baby dont keep having kids like I did. Learn from your mistakes. When I look at my kids I know god gave me them for a reason and I know I have to be the best mother I can be but if I had a chance to redo my life the only thing I would have done differently was got an education before I had my three kids. So to all you teenage moms may god bless you and your babies. And keep your head up and keep going no matter what dont let nothing and no one get in the way of you fulfilling your dreams and being a good mother bye now and take care!!!!!!!
Little Surprise!When I found out I was pregnant it was about a month away from my 23rd birthday. Me and my husband were not ttc (even though I really wanted a baby). I started noticing I was cramping and felt bloated so I decided to take a pregnancy test and there it was a positive!! I couldn't believe it I was crying and laughing at the same time. We have always had unprotected sex and I never became pregnant but I guess God really knew that I wanted a baby and we were ready to be parents!!
ConfusedWell I think I might be pregnant I have some sign headaces, I have been hurting a lot, I feel like a ballon, I am sleepy a lot, I go to the bathroom a lot now. I have took a test it was negative but most people say take it after your missed monthly mine is a week away so I think I took it to early. I am 19 my boyfriend is 20 be 21 in 13 more days. I don't know if I be happy or not if I am I love kids and want them someday and would not mind if it was now its just the big thing with my boyfriend he acts like a kid hisself mad if I stay gone to long won't let me stay at my own moms house cause he scared of being alone he is like a kid hisself and I don't think at my age I am ready for two right now :(
It could not happen to me.....My close friends always made fun of me because the third week of everymonth (or so) I would run out scared silly and by pregnancy tests. I was never very solid with my birth control and hated condoms. It got to the point I thought for real that I could never get pregnant... But I always checked to make sure....
My friends would say you could draw some lines on a stick and hand it to me...and I would pee on it :)
Well I stopped worrying about 10 months ago, and I had even considered going to get fertitlity tested... One day I was on the phone with my boyfriend (now husband) while he was at work, and I had just gotten out of bed, and needed to use the restrooom. Well I was not worried at all... just a little bored, (not even late yet) and then I saw it sitting in the cabinet....One solitary preg test. So I did the natural thing to me, I kept talking and used the test, expecting the one pink line I always see. Well imagine my suprise when the thing came out with 2 lines. Two very very clear lines.
I still to this day do not remember a single thing my husband was saying on the phone at that time :) At all. I ran to our room mates bedroom door, knocked, and when he opened it held my finger to my lips (shhhhh!) pointed at the phone and began frantically waving the test around. I somehow managed to get off the phone. We went to the store and 30 min later. They were all positive.
My husband and I had always joked that if I ever got pregnant he would know byy me giving him a fathers day card. Well he figured out I was acting strange over the phone and by the end of his lunch break he asked me, do i have a fathers day card waiting on me?
Fast foward 8 months (turned out i found out on 1 month on the dot). I am 38 weeks and 5 days. I am being induced in 2 days. I got married. We are anxiously waiting on our baby boy.... And I have never been so happy in my life .
