I Can't Believe It's Me
If someone would have told me freshman year that I would have a child before I graduate I would have laughed. I never imagined this could happen to me. I met the love of my life on september 6th 2006, on september 5th of 2007 I was staring in disbelief at two pink lines. I was in shock, I never thought this would happen to me. I guess love just made me careless. I hear alot of statistics that people think will apply to me but I don't believe them.
I know me and my boyfriend will be together forever and i know i'll be a great mom. I know I'll graduate highschool, nobody can tell me otherwise. I know my senior years going to be difficult but I can do it. My son will be making his appearance this May and I can't wait to hold him in my arms.
Being pregnant in highschool is tough as I'm sure it is any other time. I get home from school at 2:30 and go to work at 4:00 and by time Get to sleep it's close to eleven. On the weekends I get up at 5:30 and work untill two. I'm 26 weeks and the aches are setting in. My feet began swelling and my body hurts. I would love to take a long hot bath but the doctor has ruled them out. At least I have my babys father to massage me and rub my feet.
I can't wait to see him. We are both equally excited about our sons upcming arrival but I think I am more scared than he is. He will be graduating this year and i will next year. He works and so do I. I know he is going tho be a great dad. I can telll by the way he plays with our son before he's even here. He likes to rub my belly and kiss it. Our son loves his dads voice and his touch. He never kicks if someone puts their hand on my belly unless it's mine or daddys.
We know we have a tough road ahead of us but we also know we can do it. Sure this has happened years before we had planned to start a family, and niether of us know what it's really going to like but we refuse to let the unknown bring us down. Honestly he's a lot better than I am at that because I am terrified but I know I can do this.
Wish us luck because were going to need it!!! Can't wait to meet our baby boy for the first time!!!
So excitedI am nearly 18 weeks now and have had a really good pregnancy experience so far. Except for 3 weeks of morning sickness I have felt really healthy and well. I started feeling the baby move at 15 weeks but wasn't sure if it was something else, but I am feeling it far more strongly now.
It is such a lovely time and my husband and I are so looking forward to meeting our little baby. We have decided to find out if they are a boy or girl at the 20 week scan.
Only 2 weeks to go!
ExcitedThis is my second pregnancy, and I am now 19 weeks. Tom and I find out tomorrow what we're having. He was the first to know I was pregnant, and he said it was a girl from day 1...LOL...I hope so.
We got pregnant thru first time in May and found out on my birthday. We were so scared, and excited too. That was short lived when I spotted a week later...spent 7 hours in the hospital to find out I had a miscarriage. They didn't do an ultrasound just an exam and my uterus was clear.
Ten days later I had horrible pains in my lower abdomen and dealt with them for 2 days until I couldn't walk, and was throwing up constantly. Tom rushed me to the e.r. And they told me I didn't have a miscarriage and that the baby was now 8 weeks and had ruptured my tube and I was internally bleeding. They rushed me into surgery and took my left tube. They told me that they other tube looked perfect but that I would only be fertile for 6 months out of the year. That was on June 18th...By August 9th we were pregnant again...This time everything was great, and we have a so far healthy baby. We are so excited, and we have picked the names Charlotte "Charlie" Lynn, and Jackson Thomas.
I would just like to say, when they tell you your horrible sickness will go away in the 2nd trimester they lied. I am still sick, and so far I've only gained 1/2 a lb. I also had horrible constipation around the 2nd month, had to visit the E.R. to fix the problem. But she'll be worth it :)
The easy stagesWell this was the fun part of pregnancy I really loved being pregnant at this point all I did was eat and I was full of energy I worked at the bank so the hours I worked allowed me and my husband to go for walks in the park and of out to eat and really got to enjoy this time.
The morning sickness was gone the only thing was the itching because then my stomach was growing and also the peeing was kicking in so that was a little hard but other than that I loved this part.
Roving eye or just pleased to be a daddy?I've been married for 4 years now and have two daughters Lucie (aged 4) and Sophie-Rose (aged 2).
My husband has never been the most faithful of men and his eyes roved before, but I'd like to say we've been solid since the birth of our first daughter. The only problem is after I gave birth to the girls, he wouldn't go near me for months after. It was like after seeing all that blood and gore he didn't see me in the same way again. He confessed that after seeing me give birth, he couldn't bring himself to have sleep with me and our sex-life was on hiatus for the next ten months or so.
It was the same with Sophie-Rose, he didn't interact with her at all. Now I've found out I'm pregnant with a baby boy, Edmund and he's been scarily supportive. I don't know whether it's because it's a boy or because he's feeling guilty. It would shatter me if I found out he was having an affair at this stage.
