Hey girls, I'm 16,17 at the end of the year and I'm 2 months pregnant my boyfriend and his mum tho and are both very supportive about the whole sisutation now the hard part is telling my mum, and thee reason why I'm so scared is because my mum and dad didn't have a good relationship when I was 9 my dad committed suicide so now mum is raising three kids on her own, our life use to be realy bad and now it's gone from bad to extremely good and mum will be disappointed in me I think I was shocked when I found out I was going to be bringing a child in to this world while I'm only a chil myself still. I just wanna know does anyone have any ideas how I can tell my mum? Thanks



Me and my husband, (Sam) suddenly got really attached to each over. It all started when we were walking in to the ualtasound place hugging each over. When it was our turn, they said that I would need to get two shots. I screamed. Sam burst out laughing, saying, "don't be silly, the needle hasn't even touched you!" A few moments later I found out we were having a girl. She will be born, 8/14/11.


My pregnancy adventure

My amazing adventure started in February of 2011. I started feeling nauseus for absolutely no reason, and started detesting foods I normally loved. Thinking it was a mild case of food poisoning, i ignored it. When this feeling continued and got worse, my husband suspected something was up, he came home one day with a home pregnancy test and urged me to give it a try. Suprise of suprises, i was pregnant!!! Thinking back i realise, i should'nt have been so suprised since my periods were by that stage already 2weeks late ( but since i do get late periods at certain times i didnt think much of it).
We were thrilled, and called both sets of parents and informed them almost immediately. Since this little one is to be the first grandchild for both sets of parents, they were overjoyed as well. I thought i was one of the lucky ones wherein i only had the never ending nauseus sensation without having to puke, but how wrong i about the 7th week, the nausea turned into morning sickness, i was spewing like a fire hydrant the whole day!!!!!! The sight of food in any form used to make me sick, i swear, the kitchen never saw my face for about 4 months. I could'nt even step into the grocery store without feeling sick, needless to say it was just water and fruits that kept me going.
By about the 18th week i started feeling better, the nausea and vomiting had abated for the most part, and i could cook again, but only vegetarian dishes, whenever I craved meat, we had to get it from out, as i still could'nt stand the smell of it for long periods of time.
By the middle of the 18th week, my cravings started, and it didnt start slowly, it came with a bang!!!! I would wake up in the middle of the night wanting items such as peanut butter sandwiches with pickles, sneaker ice cream and donuts...i was hungry all the time, every husband found it to be very entertaining catering to all my cravings. Plus not to forget ,my belly had started showing by around the 12th week mark, in the beginning it was all good, i was too busy with the morning sickness to think about aches and pains, but once that abated, the leg and back pains started, in the beginning it was manageable, but by about the 19th week, it became harder. I never knew i would find sitting down so heavenly and peacefull !!!! I used to love standing before pregnancy, now that was next to impossible.
By the 19th week, I had gone for three visits to my gyneacologist and was due for another one later that week. All the tests results to date were normal indicating that the featal development was good. We were looking forward to this appointmet, as we would get to know the sex of our little one. I for one, did not have a preference either way, but my husband was really rooting for a girl....he really wanted a daughter, as he only had boys on his side of the family. I felt like crying the moment i saw her on screen...yes a HER!!! I have never seen my husband so happy, he could not stop smiling, and has been ever since..... Our little angel decided it was best to give her parents a view of her bottom, followed by parting her legs so that the sonographer could deciper the sex....after that incident, she did not part her legs again, it was always close together, like a little lady!!! She then proceded to show us her hands and fingers, legs and toes, her tummy and then i really could'nt help it, i had tears in my eyes, to me she was and is the most beautiful girl in the world, though in actuality, she looks like a cute little alien!!!!....
I am currently in my 21st week, and am still going through the cravings and the back and leg pain stage...i guess these symptoms would follow us through till the end of our next appointment is at the 24th week mark to check for sugar levels...i can't wait to meet my little one, i know it will be alot of sleepless nights but to me this is the greatest blessing any mother could ever wish for, a little one who is entirely her own.

My little princess

Hi my name is Cara and I am currently 21 weeks pregnant, I only found out around 14 weeks, I was very sick a few years back and was told I would not be able to fall pregnant, so finding out was a big shock, I have been with my partner for over four years, we are both so excited about this pregnancy and so are both our families. We have had so much support it has been great. We had an ultrasound around 15 weeks and were told we were having a little boy, naturally we all went out and splurged on boys clothes. I recently had my twenty week scan that revealed we are actually having a little girl!! We were shocked yet still very happy we pretty much have everything we need for our princess! I am feeling much better than the first trimester, I was very sick! I am only 19 but I am very mature and have been with my partner for a long time we have our own home our own cars and two great jobs, so to the people out their who look down on young mothers. I say use are the pathetic ones. Anyone can have sex but not everyone will stand up and take responsibility, we love our little miracle girl, seeing her 3D pictures and feeling her kick is amazing.. By the way we are nameing her Madalyn Nicole and I am due 27 sep 2011. :) good luck to all
