I am 17 years old, 18 weeks pregnant, a full time high school student, and a fabulous girlfriend! lol! i found out i was pregnant on Christmas! a total shock, i was scared to death! I thought that i was very well protected but, oops! but i am now very excited! I get to find out the sex in 2 weeks. I am very anxious to know!! I am going to be excited if it is a girl or boy! I really have just been praying for a healthy baby!
Ooo.. last night at about 3:30 AM i felt the babies first movement. It really felt like i swallowed a fish almost.. it was very cool though!! i was definately in awe! :) Hmm, well thats pretty much my story!
how do you ever get over iti remember it was the middle of sept and i didnt feel right. i did a pregnancy test and it came up positive. i was so excited because i did not think i could have kids because when i was 16 i had a miscarriage and had never fell pregnant after. my excitment was short lived because 3 days after i started bleeding. i went to the doctor and was told I miscarried. i was gutted and my partner knew how upset i was so he took me away on holiday in november. whilst on holiday my breasts felt weird and were firmer than ususal and my stomach was bigger. when we got home we did another test and it came up positive.
I went back to the doctors and was told i was pregnant again and was about 6 weeks along. it felt like i was more than 16 weeks. I was told that i couldn't have a scan till end of january because they were busy. I could only get a scan earlier if i was prepared to pay and go to a private doctor which we could not afford with xmas and just getting back from holiday. i made a appointment with the midwife was told for the size of my stomach i was i was about 17 weeks pregnant and i was to late to have some of the tests.
a few days after, i started bleeding again. the doc said it sounded like a miscarriage and to go to epac. i did this and the scan showed i was 20 weeks pregnant. i was also told i had a haemotomma and that my blood group was rare and that every time i bled i would need a anti-d. I went home on xmas eve i started bleeding again and went back to the hospital for my anti-d. I was told they were too busy to scan me and that I would have to wait till jan 10th. i had pains in my left side was told they suspected appendicitis. They said I should go home and rest. My pain was getting worse during the night and i heard something tear down below. I called my partner and i went to the toilet and my baby came out. it had died.
He was breach and i will never forget my son and losing him xmas day. It's the worst thing anyone could go through and my partner and i have been to hell and back but we are getting through it together. We are now looking to try again but i have been diagonised with a weak cervix and our life will never be the same again. i use to argue with my partner all the time saying he didnt care because he was not crying all the time like me but men deal with it different than women. so if there are people out there who have gone through this the best thing i can say is to talk to your partner and if you are on your own talk to someone.

my pregnancyHI everyone...
im 18 years old and im 6 months pregnant.
i found out i was pregnant when i was only 5 weeks i couldnt believe it.i was so excited and so was everyone else except my mother!
my fiance was over the moon! she didnt come around til i was about 3 months.
i didnt have much morning sickness at all..i would have been sick about 5 times so far! Lucky..
i found out at my 19weeks ultrasound that im having a little girl! me and my fiance have decided to call her SHYANNE MARIE!
i love watching my belly move when she kicks..its a really exciting experience. we just cant wait till shes born! i have 14 weeks 2 go..hopefully it goes quick!
ahh the glories of motherhood!my name is jess and im currently 20 weeks pregnant. this is my first baby and im not with the father anymore, i do have a partner who is quite excited to help me raise the baby even though it isnt his. i dont know what id do without him! i find out the sex of my baby in 2 days which is daunting.. ive had pregnancy scares before an i didnt believe it when the doctors said i was... this story is about a morning i woke up 2 days ago...
i dont sleep much through the night due to the baby moving and me needing to use the bathroom!!! but i woke up at about 7am the other morning to find that i was drenched in som sort of sticky liquid... i thought there must have been a leak in our ceiling... low and behold i had strted to leak collostrum! so not only was i confused... i was dripping liquid out of my breasts! my partner got the raw end of the stick as well as he'd cuddled up to me at some time and gotten covered as well!
i feel the baby move every day now, not sure if i have felt it kick.. it is the most amazing feeling to feel your child grow and move inside of you. to know that i am growing a child makes me appreciate life so much more.. (and my mother for going through this with me!)
i couldnt be happier with becoming a mother. this baby has filled my heart with joy and so much love.
