The Pregnancy Partners

  • Baby name discussions began today... i dont even know if im pregnant yet!

    hi.. im gonna say something that im really embarassed about and its something that people will look down on me for but... im 14 and yes i did say 14.... anyway...

  • So confused...wishing it was easier

    I know my body pretty well. I know the symptoms before my period starts. My breasts usually become tender and sometimes swell a bit a few days before I begin.

  • .Planning!.

    It`s been so long since I had a journal or blog, so I don`t even know how to begin!

  • Is it possible to get pregnant with the mirena IUD

    Can you get pregnant with the Mirena IUD??? I am having symptoms for 2 months but still negative hcg. Im confused and worried!!

  • Money...(?)

    So I just upset myself over what else...MONEY!!!! ugh I hate money.

  • Rambelings of a crazy person

    So I'm a bit of a planner and because of it everyone is sick of hearing from me. Maybe this will help me get out what I need to talk about without driving everyone nuts with my talking.

  • Excited about getting pregnant but also SCARED OUT OF MY MIND!!!

    I'm 29yrs old, and as you can see by the subject line, I'm both excited and scared out of my mind about pregnancy. My boyfriend and I have been together for 7.5 years, and have recently made the decision that it's time for children to make an appearance in our lives. Since coming to this mutual agreement, I haven't been able to think about anything else. The day we discussed starting a family involved coming up with names...and how we're going to rearrange our apartment. I've been so excited about it, that I've told all of my family that we're going to be trying in the near future.

  • Can His Boys Swim?

    QUESTION

    Hi Sam,
    We've been trying now for two years to have a baby. At this point I've undergone multiple tests with no answers. My doctor has recommended my husband be tested for fertility issues.

    His immediate response seems to be that I'm somehow questioning his sexual abilities. Trust me -- THAT part is fine!

    How is it that women are supposed to go through the testing and that's ok, but the same isn't true for guys?

  • Looking for Family-Friendly Couples

    QUESTION

    My partner and I have decided we’re ready to start our family. The rest of our friends aren't settling down yet. His guy friends still chasing girls in bars and mine too focused on finding "Mr. Right." Do you think this sounds like a recipe for a problem in our relationship?

    Is there a way to navigate to other couples building their families? I mentioned that to my partner and neither of us have no clue where to even connect with these people.
