To Teen Mom's or Mom's to be
I have been reading some stories here and one really got to me. The 16 and pregnancy. This child does not yet have the baby and is saying that "to all young Mothers it's not as hard as you think" I was a young Mother I was 19 when I had my first Daughter and it was VERY difficul. My life changed so much and then I had another child at 24 with my Husband and what a difference the age made. I was much more mature at that time and in all honesty took much better care of my second because I was in a different place in my life. It's so much better to wait until you are older. I am now 29 and pregnant with my 3rd child again w/my Husband same daddy as the second. I am confident that I am going to be an even better mother this time because of my mental stability. It also makes a huge difference depending on the guy that you are with. My first Daughters father was someone I was sure I was going to marry and he was going to be there forever, wow how silly I must have sounded to my parents like I hear here today. I think girls think that a baby is going to make a couple closer, but that is not the case, it's stressful on any couple young or old, but especially on teen couples. My Husband and I went through hard times after our Daughter was born because it was a huge life changing experience. We had less time for each other. We love our Daughter more than words, but you really need to have a solid relationship w/great understanding to handle a LIFE CHNAGING EXPERIENCE like having a baby... Kids are the best!!! And I love my kids and my unborn child, but I am now old enough to make wise decisions for them that I once couldn't with my first... I thought I was doing everything right until I was older and had my 2nd... So to all you TEEN Mom's it's a lot harder than you could ever imagine!!!!!!! It's worth it thoughjulie

Jet Lag Aug 1- Aug 3, 2008 Back from San Francisco, in London and our 29 m2 apt.....My husband and I have been lying in our bed, hot from summer, from 4am to 6am, tossing and turning. Itís been fantastic. I really enjoy it, so much that it scares me to think that he may outgrow the pleasures of cuddling me.
I wish I could take pictures of us, every 15 minutes just to relay all the comfortable positions we have found while lying in bed, tossing and turning. I get lost in every position, just thinking about his fingers touching mine, his toes playing with mine, or how his arm is resting on my pregnant belly, chest or my lips touching his back.
Sometimes, my mind wanders thinking about how much I am in love with him, and hoping that he never stops loving me. I am a little scared of this. Itís almost too good to last, that something has to change or there wonít be an equilibrium of something, somewhere. How can it not change? Isnít there a maximum threshold to everything and then there is only one direction downwards? I am quite wonderous how I can feel this way, how I never knew I could feel this way, after 6 years of marriage, 9 years of knowing each other, how could I love someone even more? We canít have sex now, post pre-term labor and such...even as much as I want to, as much as he wants to...despite this probation, its wonderous to feel this way...and I donít want this feeling to end.
We whisper I love you, every now and then. Sometimes, he whispers I love you, stinkface..or some version of that, which sets this levity to say, letís not get carried away, letís just enjoy. This is good. I donít want to get carried away. It would be too dangerous.
There was this moment when I felt little baby Alexandre kicking...he kicked at around 5am, just at a postiion where if I lie on my left side onto Chrisís right side, the sides of our bellies would touch. And every time Alexandre would kick Chris could feel it too. It was awesome. I felt that Chris could really feel how it was to have our baby kicking inside me. This blows my mind too.
Despite our jetlag, Chris hasnít been cranky and remains this wonderous husband during the day, taking care of me post-preterm labor. Cooking dinner, loving me. Iím a bit scared. How can we last this way? Doesnít all good things come to an end?
I wish I could tell someone; just in case. Just in case it ends, just so that someone can remind me how good things can be. Its wonderous to me how lucky I am, how lucky I can feel despite all my fears about the baby. Dilated kidney? Asymmetrical ventricles in the brain? What? God please. Please help me to be strong no matter what comes along. Please help me to trust in love.
Our little monster
I am blessed today to be in my 2nd trimester, getting ready to enter my 3rd and final. I am currently almost 27 weeks along with my child...which is going to be a little boy. My husband & I were trying to have a baby for a couple on months & then one day it finally happened. I had taken several home test & I thought for sure that I was pregnant but the test kept coming up neg. until one night I decided to take one more test...I thought for sure, it was going to be an "yes" and that is exactly what it read...a possitive! My husband & I were very very happy...I could not believe my eyes...the day I had been waiting for forever. Now all of these weeks later, I am still just as excited and happy about my pregnancy! I have not had a bad pregnancy at all, no complaints...I have been really blessed...to hear some of the horor stories out there I consider myself very lucky...to have made it thus far and still be doing good. I hope the rest of the pregnancy will be as wonderful & the delivery...we shall see a little less than 14 weeks left to go...then we get to meet our little monster for the first time."Pumpkin"
