Fibriods and Polyps who knew
Hello my name is Geena and my story is very similiar to Melissa's. I am thirty-eight years of age and in Jaunary of this year they removed a polyp near my cervix I was twenty weeks pregnant at time. I had been bleeding since the begining of my pregnancy in 2005. I had gained all hope to having a normal pregnancy after the polyp removal, but to my dismay fourteen days later my water bag broke. I was air lifted to UNM hospital in Albq. I spent a whole month there before I delivered. All of this due to fibriods and polyps. My story ends tragically because after ten days of given birth to a beautiful little girl that I named Martha Leilah, she passed away from Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). Now after everything was said and done I am facing yet another surgery the third with in a years period to remove my uterus (hysterectomy).
Mature first-time mummy-to-beI'm 36 years old and expecting my first baby in Sep. Given my age, I had to have amniocentesis at week 16 to test for down's syndrome. Thankfully, my baby is perfectly alright. Now 33 weeks, my pregnancy has been quite blessed thus far - no morning sickness, no gestational diabetes, no preeclampsia, no swelling, no constipation ... i did however, had itchy rashes on tummy and face for about 2 weeks when i hit my 28th week. thankfully they went away without a trace. now i'm having bad running nose and cough, started 3 weeks ago. Dr can't give me strong medication for fear of affecting my baby. i can only pray and hope that this too, will go away soon. i can't wait for this pregnancy to end, so as to see and hold my baby in my arms. but i'll surely miss his movements in my tummy.
First time pregnancyThis is the first time I fell pregnant, I never thought I will enjoy my pregnancy because my boyfriend is not cooperative and he is right now preparing to marry his girlfriend, he abondonded me and his unborn baby. Right now I know that I am going to be a single mom and it hurts because I never conceived this baby alone you know, but I'm looking forward for this big challenge thanks to my aunt, her husband and her children (cousins and their wives). Right now I'm so happy and excited especially when my baby kicks and plays inside me that's when I know that my baby is healthy and happy. I'm enjoying every moment of my pregnancy.
I'm 22 years old and having my first baby, I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant today and I'm so ready for this pregnancy to be over. Don't get me wrong, I love being pregnant and feeling all the movements my baby makes and watching my belly grow by the day but I'm starting to get so uncomfortable I can hardly stand it. The heat this summer has been absolutly unbearable (I sweat constantly which is really embarassing) and my lower back is so sore at times that it's hard to get out of bed or from a sitting position. My knees have also become very sore in the last few weeks. I'm assuming this stuff is all quite common but all I want is to have my baby and bring it home. I wish I was farther along so that I could be nearing the end. I've also become very emotional over the last few weeks....crying at silly things like commercials or stupid songs that would normally have no effect on me. Pregnancy so far has been quite an interesting adventure.
First time fearsI am 19 years old and expecting a baby boy in October. Going on 30 weeks now i have began having these fears about pregnancy. Although mothers have done this for years, i am continuing to "what if" everything! This is my first child and it is probably normal to be going through this, but am i overly scared? Early in pregnancy i found out that i am RH negative. Before pregnancy i had not even a clue about it. Now, i know a little but not much more than i did. Is this Rh thing going to hurt me or my son? I dont know much about the fact to rest assure about the subject. I am hoping that i can get a little advice and some reassurring facts about this.
