My 2nd Bundle of Joy

I am currently 25 weeks and I have to say this pregnancy is definitely different than my first. My first was breach and she didn't move much, so I didn't get to experience all the movement that I am now.

To me, it is absolutely amazing to be able to experience this in my lifetime. The gift of pregnancy is definitely a "gift". I hope that all pregnant women out there really appreciate the gift we are given.

Good luck to everyone!



Iím 18 and pregnant... I was happy with the guy that got me this way until last Thursday when he broke it off with me. He doesnít believe the baby is his and wonít try to work things out unless we get a paternity test to prove that heís the father. I understand where he is coming from.

He had another girl friend that was pregnant and found out the baby wasnít his... but it hurts so much to know that I have to wait until June to even try to work it out with him. He broke up with me last Thursday... I moved out of his house that Sunday and found out a couple of days ago on Tuesday that another girl asked him out on Sunday and now they are dating... Iím hurting so much... and I'm scared about going through the rest of the pregnancy without him... he said he would be there for me... but I donít think he will.

Iím so scared that all the stress of this will have an affect on the baby... Iím 18 weeks along, almost 19 weeks... Monday I go for my prenatal appt. so hopefully I can find out what the sex will be. I donít care what it is as long as its healthy but Iím scared it wonít be healthy because of all the stress Iím going through with him and work... And my stomach is getting bigger but I donít think I've gained enough weight... Iím eating like crazy so Iím not sure why I donít look 18 weeks....


hospital misread my pregnancy test

I am now 20 weeks pregnant. I found out I was pregnant in Sept 06, soon after I had strong pains and some bleeding so I went to the hospital. I didnít know how far the pregnancy was so they only asked me to give urine. Then they said I miscarried. Since then I have had a pretty normal life.

Later in December I started feeling sick so I went to the Dr and she ordered a pregnancy test, which of course, came out positive. We thought I must be around 8-10weeks. We had to decide for a TOP so I got everything sorted for that even if it wasnít my personal decision. Before the TOP I needed a scan, blood tests and urine tests. Everything went fine till the scan came out that I was 16w+1d.

We decided to keep the baby and since then we are really excited. I had another scan done and it seems the baby is fine but now I am waiting for my blood tests. I am a bit upset as St Maryís hospital in Portsmouth will not say the sex of the baby so I have to wait another two weeks to see if I will get that done privately or not

Well that is my story for now.

Have a great day all.


my lil girl

Well, I have gotten over the morning sickness. I'm about 21 weeks right now. Iím due on May 19.

I can feel the baby move inside me. I canít feel her kick yet but I can feel the turning inside. Iím getting really excited now. I canít wait till she comes out. I just get really tired; throughout the days I have to nap. I have a lot of sores all around my body I can feel.


So Excited!

I just want to thank all of you for your stories and wish you the very best of luck with your pregnancies and deliveries.

My husband and I are 20 weeks pregnant today! I have also had some struggles. We had tried to get pregnant for almost two years with no success so without having gone to the doctor I already figured something was wrong with us.

Having recently graduated from college and being busy with a new career we pushed the idea of a child aside. Earlier this year I had been really, really sick. I tried all kinds of medicine. It never occured to me that I was pregnant. I figured when I missed my period in August that the stress of teaching this school year was just getting to me. When I missed it again in September I knew it was time to get a test. I think its funny because everyone seemed to realize I was pregnant but me! I'll never forget the moment when I took that test and sent my husband the text message that read, "Congratulations Daddy!" He was so happy that he told everyoneÖand I mean everyone.

At eight weeks I had to go to the emergency room for some bleeding. I was so scared. I couldn't understand what had gone wrong. The doctor said I had a subchorionic hemorrhage and that I had a 50% chance of losing the baby. Talk about worried...thatís all I have been since I went to the hospital that day. I had to be on bed rest for a little while and I had some problems with my blood pressure.... I think that was sparked by my own worrying.

I am now 20 weeks along and Tuesday we should find out if we are having a boy or a girl! I haven't had any complications since then. It seems as though the problem healed itself. This is my first baby so I'm not sure if I've felt movement or not. Sometimes I think I do but I'm not sure. I can't wait until I'm sure that in fact my babyís movements are what I'm feeling!

God bless to all!
