QUESTION

My husband is scared of our newborn!

Good grief! I cannot get him to hold the baby unless I go get her and bring her to him while he's sitting down first.

Giving a bath, dressing, or even changing a diaper? OUT of the question. He's afraid he’ll hurt her even when I've offered to show him how multiple times.

I want/need him to be a parent. If I wanted to be a single mom I could have been!

You're Having Twins...or more!

"A sonogram just confirmed that I'm carrying twins. I'm excited, but really, really nervous. Getting my head around having one baby on the way has been exciting and a little scary. Now I'm terrified. I don't know how I'll manage having two babies at once!" You will manage as a mother of twins, in ways you never thought possible...

Round Two - a 6 month old and one on the way!

So I took a test last week the day my period was due and it was negative...I held out for a week and retested. Drumroll! The two pink lines appeared and catapulted us into panic mode. We have an almost-6 month old, we just moved from Connecticut to Florida, our family lives three thousand miles away and only one of us is working at the moment. After the initial shock, we started to think rationally about how in the world we're going to do this.

planned pregnancy.

Hi!I'm 19, 20 in October, I just married a month ago on valentines day and I think I'm pregnant. It was planned so its no surprise. The problem is that our families are in texas and he is stationed in camp pendleton, cali. His contract is up in June and our plans are to move to houston and attend college. Idk how I'm gonna be starting college and possibly giving birth! I'm pretty much an only child and not very familiar with babies but I'm so excited to be a mom and what makes me happier is that he is the dad. We dated for 6 years and married on valentines day of this year.

So my first pregnancy was when i was 15 years old and it was during my sophomore year of high school. not really my fault or anything, just put myself in a bad situation but hey couldn't change the past. but i found out my child was gonna be a boy and i was happy. when i was 16 i had him. he was due may 1st but he came 2 wks and 4 days early. it was apr. 13th 2007. he was 7lbs 6 oz and 20.5 in. long. i named him trentyn xavier. his labor/delivery was really easy, only about 5 and a half hours long and with no pain meds and vaginal, with an episiotomy. i gained about 45 pounds with it.

miscarriage

i know i havent posted much since signing up with this site. But i just had a miscarriage this morning around 120am. I was so scared there was so much blood, pain and i couldn't stop crying. I guess it just wasnt meant to be, i just wish things could be different.

thank you
