41 and Pregnant
I'm 41 yrs old and this is my first child; I had a miscarriage last year. My husband and I wanted to try again and here I'am 33 weeks pregnant and my baby is doing great. I never thought I would have a child; I meant my husband on a dating line. We married after 8 months of being together and now we are pregnant 19 months later. I've never been happier in my entire life.
How can I be so lucky?Here I am today 27 weeks and man what a long pregnancy. This my third child with a third man. I never thought I would be like this 3 babies daddies.
I am separated and found someone who is everything a girl could want. He loves me unconditionally and is just great!
This pregnancy is exhausting I am so tired cranky and just horrible! I am not sure why he puts up with it. He says so many positive things to me everyday and I don't believe a word.
I feel sad.
Seventeen and PregnantI'm seventeen years old, and I'm 30 weeks into my pregnancy, with a girl. Sophia Delean
When i found out there was so many things running through my head. I tought about what my famiily would think, what people at school would think. I was so nervous, i knew my family would be ashamed. When i told my mom i dont think she knew how to act, it was so awkward, she didnt tallk to me for a whole day. But now everything is fine with my family. Me and my mom get along better than ever now.
Aside from my family and people looking at me all crazy, this pregnancy has been really difficult, my hormones are making me crazier than i already am, and its realy taking a tole on me and my boyfriend. We've been together alittle over a year now. We are still very in love , but pregnancy is a very hard thing to go through with someone. Some days I'm fine then some days i don't even know whats wrong with me.
But I'm very excited and really for her to be here. She's goiing to have a very loving and warm family.
Mom & baby expecting babies..i am seventeen years old and 31 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. i've been with the baby's father for well over a year now & over all we have a good relationship & are extreamly excited to be having a baby. i am so excited and happy to be expecting and i know most of your girls got "the look" while you were pregnant, you know, when you realize someone is staring at your huge belly in shock and then you make eye contact, talk about akward. and the looks from the teachers are way worse. but i remember when i first found out i was expecting, i was so scared and i cried but all my boyfriend could do is smile and try to comfort me. i was scared mostly because my mom was pregnant with my beautiful little sister, who is now three months old, and i didnt want my mom to be dissappinted in me. which she was. but she eventually got over it & now she is so excited to be a grandma. shortly after i told my mom my boyfriend ran into some problems of his own and got arrested for violating house arrest and he spent 3 months of our pregnancy in jail. it was such a hard time in my life but now he's home, were saving for an apartment and my whole family is very exepting and excited. my point is that everything gets better eventually & if you are young and pregnant dont ignore it or push off telling your parents because your scared because you can harm your baby and yourself. i am so excited to be a mommy & feeling my little boy kick is one of the most amazing things i've ever felt in my life and it makes me wonder how im gonna feel the first time i hold him.
i wish all you other teen moms luck (:
Our Little AngelI am 37 years old. I have 2 children ages 12 and 10. I have been pregnant 5 times. My first loss was at 20 weeks. I went to my 20 week ultrasound only to discover that my baby no longer had a heartbeat. I was devastated and mad at God. I kept thinking "Why would God give me a baby and then take them away?" My next loss was at 9 weeks. I dealt with this but knew I had to try again. My daughter was soon conceived and she arrived happy and healthy. Two years later came the news that I was pregnant. I remember being afraid but also having some peace that this baby would be OK. Sure enough he arrived happy and healthy. Ten years flew by and I was getting older. I knew I wanted a baby but God decided differently. One day out of the blue I decided to take a pregnancy test. I had no signs or symptoms of pregnancy. I just decided to pee on a stick. I couldn't believe it when it read pregnant. I was so excited I called my girlfriend and told her immediately. It was right before Easter and I wanted to surprise my fiance with the news. He told me I was pregnant before I could even tell him. He said he already knew it. He was scared but excited. My pregnancy was text book perfect. Every time I went to the doctor he said everything was perfect. I kept thinking if I could just make it past 20 weeks I could breathe a little easier. 20 weeks came and we find out we were having a boy. I already knew this down in my heart. I was HAPPY! I named him Cooper.
My pregnancy continued without any problems. I was scheduled to have an induction a week before my due date. My last month everything went to Hell. His movements slowed WAY down. I went to the doctor 4 times that last month with the same complaint. His heart rate was doing weird things but they didn't feel that it warranted taking him early. It was Thanksgiving and I was lying on the couch with my fiance. Cooper was moving like he normally did and he had hiccups for at least 30 mins. That is the last time I remember feeling him. I was 38 weeks, with only 1 week to go. I laid in bed thinking something is wrong but hoping everything would be OK. It wasn't my baby died inside of me. I had to go through 15 hours of labor only to know the end result. My heart breaks. He was due Dec. 14, 2009. We buried Cooper on December 4.
I write this story only for one reason. Ladies we know our bodies and the babies that are inside of us. If something doesn't feel right, SAY something and don't take no for an answer. My precious baby could still be alive if I had just listened to myself and not everyone else.
