22 Weeks Down 18 To Go

Im 20 years old and pregnant with my first baby. My hubby and i found out we are having a little boy when i was 18 weeks. It was great news since we were both hoping for a little boy. This pregnancy has not been exactly what i expected. I didnt really battle with morning sickness too bad. I think i threw up like twice. I've just been extremely tired, probably because i don't sleep well at night. Along with that I've had low back pain and hip and pelvic pain. It makes it uncomfortable for me to walk. No one ever tells you about all of the negative parts of pregnancy and that we are supposed to just deal with it. I started out weighing 115 lbs and am already up to 140 lbs. Thats 25 lbs already!! I went to my OBGYN yesterday and she told me i need to cut out a lot of stuff. I've always been small so this was a major shock to me. Other than the rapid weight gain and pain ive had a great pregnancy. I started feeling my little man at 16 weeks and he gets stronger everyday. My husband is great, he waits on me pretty much hand and foot like im going to break. I've been enjoying the ride because I know after our little one gets here i wont have a spare minute and will never get that treatment again. I'm ready for the pregnancy to end and our little man to be here.


Happy Ending

Im about 23 wks pregnant with a babygirl. Its kind of a weird story. Me and my boyfriend have been together for four years and i have been pregnant with him once before when i was 16 and he was 15 but circumstances made where i couldnt have the baby now being 20 we have had a good pregnancy so far. She is always kicking and i love it. We decided to name her LeiLani Rose. Its just sad because our families dont get along because of certains things that happened in the past and now that me and him are older and want to reunite with his family for him. It seems hard. Hopefully everything works out for the best but so far our little girl is doing great and i cant wait til she comes i want it to come now! The only problems that i have had in my pregnancy is that i have a thyroid problem i have hypothyroidism and my doctors still havent check my levels and im almost 6 months im afaird something is going to affect her and im nervous.


Teen Mom

i am 17 years old and still in High School. My mom and I are both Pro Lifers and having the baby was never in question. Both my mom and I agree that continuing my education is very important and I don't want to loose sight of that no matter what. I have my mom's support. It has always been just me and my mom. My dad is not in my life. I want the father of my child to be in his life but he has not been a very responsible boyfriend and I question his ability to be a responsible dad. I found out on July 25,08 that I am having a son. I am so happy. I sure would like to know how I deal with what's best for my son as far as involving his father who gets in trouble all the time, and what I feel in my heart, and what I know in my mind. I am confused and only want what's best for my son. Being 17teen really sucks sometimes. Dealing with feelings is really hard when ur young. I know I will be a good mother and I am really excited about having a baby.

*It hasn't really sunk in yet*

Hi everyone,

I am 24 and I'm 13 weeks along with my first child. This is an exciting journey for me. My husband and I tried for 5 months before getting pregnant and found out Memorial weekend. I had my second ultrasound yesterday to check for down sydrome and what an exam it was! It was jelly on the belly as I like to call it and they looked around for a good half an hour. The little bean as I refer to this baby as was kicking and punching, and swallowing and then promptly decided to take a nap! I know that I'm pregnant....I have seen it and my pants are getting tighter (not to mention the silly sickness) but I dont think its really stuck that we are going to have a family of our own. I am WAY nervous about telling work, but other then that our families have kind of been waiting for this so all of us are over joyed. I have read this site for a while now reading about getting pregnant and all the trimesters so now its really happening! GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU OUT THERE EITHER TRYING OR EXPECTING! =)


I just want to meet her

Hello my name is sheena I m 23 and pregnant with my second child. I m really excited but nervous at the same time, my first is a boy he s 4 years old and he can't wait to be a big brother. I went for my second ultra sound to find out the sex 2 days ago, right now I m 20 weeks and 5 days. I been having dreams about this day since I found out I was pregnant. My babies father came along , first appointment he's come to , but that's a whole different story. He just knew it would be a boy , so I m lying on the table when the lady whose doing the sonogram goes do you wanna know the sex, and I m thinking yes! that's why I m here, but instead I nervously respond of course. At first the baby didn't wanna turn over but a little shaking of my belly and she did, its a girl nom you got your wish the lady goes. I was so happy daddy was a little mad but he s happy and she is healthy and doing just fine, so that's all that matters. 4 more months to go and we so can't wait to meet her!
