Starting early

Im one of the many girls that get pregnant while still in high school. Its been really hard to deal with,especially living in such a small town and being judged by so many. But i am so ready to have this baby. He is truely a blessing to me an my family. I am one of the more fortunate girls,who still have the daddy in the picture. He is my long term boyfriend.He is 21 and im 15. my parents arent very fond of this but they have learned to deal with it because he has been so great during my pregnancy. He has been to every appointment. He buys our baby things. He rubs my back and feet and talks to my belly. And no matter how swollen my face is or how grumpy i am, he tells me that im beautiful. I have lost several things the past 8 months,friends,varsity volleyball,respect people had for me,and so much more. But at the same time ive gained so much. I still had big dreams and alot of ambition..I am due on December 13th 2009 and i am going to take my 6 weeks homebound, and return to school as soon as my doctor approves. I WILL graduate. and i do have future plans. It was a very rough start..but everything gets soo much better with time. Its a vey scary thing for me to go through so soon because i was i kid myself..But when something like this happens, you just have to turn to god for all of your answers. Ive learned that God will never put you through more than you can handle. And this is my story.. I hope that if any of you women ever have an experience of a pregnant teen, that you just bare with them and make the very best of everything. Grounding them,taking their phone,etc. Wont do a thing but make it worse, She'll still be pregnant. But i am now 33 weeks along and totally ready to meet my baby boy :)



We are in our final stretch of pregnancy, today is September 16 and our due date is Sept 20. This is my first pregnancy so everything comes as a suprise. In this last trimester I have continued to work up until yesterday. I have noticed that I feel similar to how I felt the first trimester. I can't eat as much, I get fuller faster and I am extremely fatigued. My belly has grown to its capacity, I have no idea how much more it can stretch. I am so excited and anxious to see our little girl but this pregnancy has been an interesting journey.

35 weeks and counting

Well where do I start. I am 20 years old and i found out i was pregnant in February of 2009. I am due October 15 2009.
About 2 weeks after i found out i was pregnant, that is when it all began. I started getting the morning suckness. All day everyday for about 3 months. I was Triage (which is pregnancy emergancy room) about 2 or 3 times a week for those 3 months. I was given all different types of medication to make me keep at least water down, but needless to day nothing worked. I started having this really bad pain in my left side by my ovaries. So i automatically thought to call the doctor, they had me go to into triage once again. The doctor i had at the time told me it was just a torn ligament and I was pregnant that i would have aches and pains and sent me home.
Well if it wasn't for me and my mom being so persistant, i would not have found out what was really wrong with me. I decided to go against my first OB, because i just knew it wasn't a torn ligament. I went to the emergency room and told them my pain. By this time the pain had gone all the way down my left leg and i could barely walk. They imediately did a doppler on my leg and pelvic area(which is an ultra sound). They told me i had a massive blood clot, and were lucky to be alive. The doctors suggested to me to abort the pregnancy, but there was no chance that was happening. Yeah, it put my life at risk but this baby was my child and i was not going to abort it just because of a server complication. The blood clot ran from the top of my belly button all the way to my toes on my left leg.
I was then put in the hospital for 3 weeks. Giving me blood thinners and different medication to keep the pain away.
I am now 35 weeks pregnant. I have to take two injections in my belly two times a day, which is a blood thinner. Next week i move to three shots a day.
Needless to say this pregnancy has been quite a trip for me. The blood clot is still there, but is slowly going away. I still have that one chance of a blood clot breaking off and it hitting my heart. It doesn't scare me at much as it used to.
I have a scheduled induction on October 6th 2009, I am counting down the days until i get to meet this little girl. She has changed my world already, and i wouldn't change it for anything.


33 weeks and hoping its over soon

im 33 weeks and although my pregnancy has been mostly ok(except the nausa in the begining along with the throwing up and having to drop out of schhol for medical reasons) yeah its been ok. im now dealing with leg cramps and contractions and iv gone into early labor once already. im so excited but id be lying if i said i wasnt scared out of my mind. see im 20 years old and this is my first child. was not planned and the dad is ....well lets just say im glad hes out of the picture. but all of a sudden im alone which i never wanted for my child being as i diddnt have a father. but its for the best. i love my baby boy and i cant wait to see him. i feel himm moving right now and im so happy.


my pregnancy story

I got married about two years back, and after almost a year, my husband went to the border areas of our country, as he is currently serving in army. When he went there, I was living with my in laws. I was very much upset when he left, but time is the best healer so I recovered myself. When my hubby left, I didnt know I was pregnant but after a few days, I got to know that I am pregnant. I was so excited, I wanted to tell him as early as possible but I was helpless. My in laws were really glad, as it was there first grandchild too. The supported and helped me alot through out the time.
I had terrible morning sicknesses in the first trimester, I threw up almost everyday and had alot of headache too. Other than that had occasional constipation too. I was also doing job at that time. I continued it, because I didnt want to leave early. I kept missing my husband and wanted tell him these news as early as possible.
After that second trimester came, and I felt better. I left my job before the start of fifth month as my stomach got big and I started feeling a little shy too. Second trimester went fine but I had pain in my legs every night along with back aches sometimes.
Third trimester was the most horrible one. I was fine but the events which took place were horrible. During the end of second trimester, a war started on the border area, and my husband was there. I felt alot of tension. Then during my end of sixth month I got a phone call which stated that m husband is in hospital and is severely injured. I felt the world upside down. We rushed to the hospital, and there he was unconscious. Doctors told that if he doesnot gain conscious in 24 hours, he might die. I prayed to God, so hard those days and stayed very restless and fear of losing him almost killed me. But fortunately, he gained conscious, but after two days. I and my in laws were very much relieved. As soon as he gained conscious, and got a little fine, I broke him the greatest news of the world. He was very much delighted. He recovered in about a month and now he is perfectly fine. When he got fine, my pregnancy's worst time started. Vomitings along with nausea, sleeplessness, back aches, legs pains and swelling were back. Doctors told it is probably because of restlessness and stress I have taken. We were also fearful about the health of our baby.
But then eventually one day, I went into labour pain and after a hard labour pains of two days I had an operation and our baby boy was born. All of us were so glad. He is now two months old and he is very healthy and cute. He is the happiness of our eyes.
