I missed my period October 2012. I figured it was because of the visitors (my cousin and his new wife) we had living with us. I figured it was her cycle messing with mine - and of course the stress that I've been going through. I should have my period the first week of the month, so this month when it didn't come I decided to take a test over the weekend. After talking to my sister (stay at home mother of 3 boys) on 11/05, she convinced me to stop at the DollarStore and pick up a home pregnancy test. I caved and did. Picked up FOUR, just to be safe.
saw my spotting yesterday 7th Nov, now am having some cramps, feeling down and tired.
So i've had a feeling a few months ago that i may be pregnant. went to the dr.... not pregnant. about two months ago i took a test.... negative. then about 3.5 weeks ago i took two more because the first one came out positive! i KNEW my body was revolting for some reason. lol. anyway, at this juncture i've estimated myself to be anywhere between 3-8wks pregnant... most likely the latter.
Pregnancy and infant loss is never easy. The passing often takes with it shattered hearts and dreams of a future far different than the reality. Having to go through this process while still being called on to serve others -- whether that role is bearing work responsibilities, as "mom" for other children, coping with deteriorating health of parents or in-laws, or simply juggling your relationship with your partner -- 'overwhelming' doesn't even come close.
I just found out that I am FINALLY approximately 5 weeks after having fibroids removed 19 months ago!! My first prenatal appointment is in a couple weeks. I am SUPER excited but...I am the "glue" to my family and right now we are in the middle of a cluster of health crisis with various family members. At this point...Im SO about me and my baby and me and my baby ONLY but have yet to tell them why I feel this way.
I was pregnant with my second child. We found out at my 20 week ultra sound it was a little boy. At about 23 weeks I began to experience contractions and soon had my baby, a stillbirth. I have been diagnosed with an incomptent cervix. As I had already been pregnant and had my daughter, who is now 9, I had no reason to believe that there was anything worng with carrying a baby the second time areound. I have been told that when I get pregnant again I will have to have a creclage at 10 to 14 weeks. I do want to have another child but, naturally, am feeling apprehensive.
I am 6 moths pregnant today and Im very excited
it has been 4 years...and i have totally forgotten abt this website until a reminder was given to me ..hehe...
anyways...my "baby" is now a preschooler in a daily 3 hours nursery ( week days) ...
Looking for something a little different this year for Halloween -- not too spooky and not too sweet but offering a bit of an "eww" factor? Try cheesy, creepy witch's fingers.
Just found out I'm expecting my 3rd child at the age of 34. At first I was a little scared because I was thinking I was too old to have a baby, but now that I think more in to it I'm very happy.
So I'm really really pregnant. Baby is in the right spot, measuring the right size and has a heartbeat that we saw. I go back Aug 29th to hear the heartbeat, hopefully. Every twinge and ache I over analyze. I stare at the toilet paper looking for blood. It's been a whole lot of fun. However, I've had morning sickness. Like, bad. The doc put me on Zofran on Friday. I've had it for five days. Today is Wednesday, I wake up...and ..it's gone? Usually I can't wait to gobble that pill down and I even ate breakfast and I don't feel anything. Has me extremely worried.
