C.U.P.

morning sickness has not been my freind. i have a thing, where i really dont like being around sick people. well, beyond grossing myself out on a regular bases; i can't seem to find the one thing that works and thats prego poppers. {the sad thing is the best tasting candy i have found is something thats helps with morning sickness.}
in my oppinion morning sickness should be illegal.

Could I really be pregnant?

Could I really be pregnant after a tubal ligation surgery that i had done almost 6yrs ago? I've been having some strange symptoms. The one that struck me the most is how sore my breasts are and i still have 2 weeks til my cycle. I've been dizzy, tired, and all I want to eat is McDonalds fries and their vanilla ice cream cone. Plus I feel a fullness in my uterus, if that makes sense, and some cramping as well. Not to mention the headaches. I thought it was from caffeine and that maybe i was getting ready to start my cycle but then I realized it was still 2 weeks away.

Starting a New Job

I've taken the leap and started my full time job. It's making everything more real. I'll be pregnant soon and dealing with a whole new set of challenges on top of learning a new job. It may be a little too much too soon, but I was already on the path to a baby before this job came along. I decided that I didn't want to change my family plan because of a professional opportunity.

Tip for Getting Pregnant

I'm currently in school for this ancient medicine and it can be really successful in treating infertility issues. Just from working in a student clinic, I have seen women get pregnant after trying acupuncture.

On top of that it is really helpful in treating all women's issues. PMS- doesn't have to be part of your life. Menopausal syndrome/ hot flashes- don't have to be so bad.
I personally have been treated for morning sickness & it worked wonders.

when does the worry end

We have been trying for over a year and have been pregnant twice since January, now we are working on number 3 attempt and I am a wreck.. every twinge of pain, every drop of discharge is like its own mini nightmare.. I am soooo afraid all the time to even go pee, always afraid I will see blood or NOT... the last miscarriage there was no blood, until after the procedure.. I feel like even if I had an ultrasound every single monday I won't feel comfortable with this working out until the baby is born...

The Importance of Hydration

We all know how important it is to drink lots of fluids, especially water. Picture this: you are watching a marathon on television, and kind volunteers wearing colorful vests are handing out bottles of water to the runners. The marathoners drink as they run, thirstily pouring the water down their parched throats. They then throw the bottles away, and with renewed energy and strength, they charge through the finish line...Victorious

Well pregnancy and childbirth are just like marathons, and women need to be aware of the importance of remaining hydrated throughout the process.

Waiting Welton's

Today is Sunday, on Wednesday I thought I had a doctor's appointment. It turned out that it was supposed to have been on Tuesday; and I missed it! This made me really disappointed because we were told by Dr. C at last month's visit (when we couldn't find our baby's heartbeat) that we would definitely be able to hear it this time... I actually began to cry when the receptionist told me that Dr. C wasn't in and that I would have to reschedule our appointment.

Finally a confirmation!!

First, my hubby and I have been trying to conceive for about 3 months. We have two children, girls, and giving it one last shot for a boy. For the past three months I have taken multiple test, always the early detecters, only to be disappointed with negative results and finally down right sad when my period starts. My husband, Shelby, and I were begining to discuss if mabye there is a fertility problem.

Please help!!!

Please help! I went in for my first ultrsound last week, and the nurse called me and said I'm 16 weeks judging by the babies size, but my LMP was march 13th-16th, if I'm 16 weeks that would mean I got pregnant around april 15th, which is when I missed my first period. It doesn't make any sense! could something be wrong with the baby that would make him so small? Could I be further along than the doctor's think?

8 weeks, 2 days

Well I am 2 months in, and the nausea is starting to go away. It is not a constant thing anymore just an every once in awhile thing. Still cannot drink coffee without major heartburn. Most of my family now knows about the baby and they are all starting to get really excited.

Boyfriends family still does not know, want to tell them together and in person but do not see them all that often. Not sure how they are going to take the news.

Relieved at this point

Right away while trying to conceive we picked up one of those fertility monitors. It's the Clearblue Easy one where it tells me which days to pee on the stick and then it'll tell me either that I have low fertility, high fertility or peak fertility on any specific day. After this last period, which dear God I wanted to die from, I was getting anxious. Days 6-12 went by without even a high fertility day... I started getting worried. I've been so stuck on the idea of pregnancy that I think I've been tricking my body into believing that I am.

A slow Saturday

Today we didn't do much. We woke up early and spent some time cleaning. I am having some anxiety about you today. You have to understand that I want you to be perfect. I need to take my temperature and make sure it is still high. The cramping was less today and still no spotting. We will be going with my dad to church tomorrow morning.
It says on the calender that you already formed your major organs! Wow, you sure grow fast- just like my boobs right now.

Just found out about you

I took the 2nd test today, and it was positive. I have never wanted anything more. Your timing is a little off...a little late, but you must get that from me. We are moving to Seattle in 2 weeks. I just resigned from my job. You don't have a father figure, but we will make it. I am going to need you to hang in there with me!!! We will be great together if you will stick with me these next 8 months.

Pause

My boyfriend and I have decided that we're going to use condoms this month because I start my new job next week and I want to make sure my insurance kicks in before I get pregnant. It's going to be weird because we've never used condoms before. He understands where I'm coming from though, and I think it makes sense. I'm not going to go back on the pill for a month just so I can go back off and have my hormones all out of wack all over again. I hope this works. With my luck I'll get pregnant anyway even if we use a condom just to mess with my time line.
