EXCITED FIRST PREGNANCY
Well let's begin by saying I was told I couldn't get pregnant or would have trouble having a baby. I have been trying for or six years. I have even tried to have a baby by insemination twice and it didn't work. Most of my relationships were stressful so the doctor said that might have a lot to do with me getting pregnant.
Now that I am 33 years old and bought my first home August 06. I decided to adopt once I got settled in my house and was more financially stable. I started seeing this guy I used to date a year and a half ago; he is 21. Very young but a great guy. We became best friends and lovers all over again. In Oct 06 I started getting very sick; no taste for food and breasts were very, very sore. I didn't think anything because for my periods I have the same symptoms. This lasted for four weeks and I finally took a test, I WAS PREGNANT.
I could not believe it but so excited. I was already 8weeks before I found out I was pregnant. I was to busy at work and my life to worry about when my period came on. Anyway we are very excited now since the shock wore off and our baby is due July 2, 2007 and we are going to name him Jayden.
MANY BLESSINGS TO ALL NEW MOMS AND VETERAN MOMS OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!
Our Little MiraclesI have been reading the stories that have been sent in. It upsets me a bit when a mother is not happy about having the baby or worried about things that really donít matter. I am 27 yrs old. I am 17 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I did have two abortions a couple of months ago, of which I have learnt to never regret the decisions that one makes in their life. I accept what happened and am concentrating on my first child to be.
I hear a lot of women complaining about their boyfriends/husbands or the way they feel and the problems that arise as they experience this miracle. I too, have been through my share of problems but I believe that the most important thing is that pregnant women are not alone. They have the most beautiful miracle growing inside of them.
To have a human grow without you telling it what to do is definitely Godís amazing work. And I believe he sends it to us at the right time in our lives, whether we believe it or not. Pregnant women should stop worrying about all the issues that arise, and concentrate on loving themselves and their babies. To find ways to please themselves, and to listen to whatever their body asks for.
Let this miracle love the world like God does. These babies are not our own but lent to us by God. So take care, and enjoy every minute of motherhood... xxx
Sub Chorionic HemmorageOK, so this is my second time writing, and I am a little nervous. The last time I did, I went home and hemorrhaged so bad that I lost about 2 pints of blood according to the Dr.
Somehow by the grace of God I did not miscarry, I am writing this to show that sometimes, bleeding will happen and things can be ok.
Now I am still bleeding and was put on bed rest for 5 weeks to ensure I made it through the 1st trimester without a miscarriage. I am now 14 weeks and 1 day and back to work. I am still nervous and scared but am hopeful that we made it this far so we can go the rest of the way. Pray for me if you do that, as I would be extremely grateful.
This is my 1st pregnancy and I am praying the rest goes without trouble. Good luck to the rest of you out there as well.
A Blessing!!!So far so good, I am about 16 weeks and never had one day of morning sickness, dizziness, nausea or anything. This is my first child and my husbandís second. We are very excited and can't wait to celebrate the life or our new bundle of joy!! We should find out what we're having on Feb. 13, 2007.
So far I've had no complications, no spotting, just very tired and cranky everyday, have yet to feel my baby move. This is a beautiful experience for me that I cherish very much so.
Am I supposed to get happy?I am 23 yrs old, I have had the same boyfriend for three years now. About a year ago I got pregnant and at the time we both decided that we did not want children and our lifestyles were simply not fit for a baby. (P.S. I am not here to be judged by anyone). We opted for a surgical abortion. I went alone, and then felt uneasy for days to come. Well anyways, a year later we had yet another accident and I became pregnant once again, still neither of us wanted children but decided that two abortions in one year could not be good for my well being, nor my universal karma, so we decided to have the baby.
I was scared and I am still scared. My women friends told me in the beginning I would be scared and feelings of not wanting a child would pass. Well now I am 20 weeks pregnant and I am still not excited about the idea of giving birth to a child. I feel like I am the only one who is dreading the new addition to my family and I am the one carrying this child. Am I the only mother who has these feelings? Sometimes I wonder if I made the wrong decision. I think maybe I should not have kept this one either and these feelings are the universeís way of telling me that motherhood is not for me.
P.S. I have already heard many times that God will take care of me and this baby is meant to be but as I am a firm believer in reincarnation and universal karma. This does not provide me comfort. I am hoping for reassurance that I am not an empty evil soul and other mothers have felt this way too!
