First Trimester

40 and pregnant

So I found out 2 weeks ago that I am pregnant....the day after my 40th birthday. Okay, now that I know I am a little worried. Starting my 7th week and getting ready for my first appt. on Tuesday. I just want a healthy, safe pregnancy. I had a miscarriage a year and a half ago and am nervous cuz I love this baby already.

Hpt False Positives?

Dear Midwife,
I recently was having flu-like vomiting for about 3 days. My mother suggested I take a home pregnancy test and it came out pregnant! I was so excited I though it was too good to be true so I took two more. They all came out with the pregnant results and my husband and I couldn't be happier.

Morning Sickness

oh lord have I been sick! It started mid January I started feeling really lousy and assumed that this time I was unlucky and had morning sickness except over the course of a few days it just got so bad I couldn't get out of bed except to run to the toilet (not to vomit) and I had a constant burning in my stomach as well as nausea. After another couple of days I felt a bit better and went to the doctor (what kind of third world country have we got where a doctor won't make house calls and you're too sick to go to see him) who said I had a temperature so most likely had a bug.

My first six weeks

My hubby and I have been trying to conceive for a while. It got to a stage where we put some strain in our relationship, because I expected him to perform any time, day or night. So we decided to take a break for a while. We made this decision beginning January 2009.

Imagine our surprise when I learned that I was pregant early in February. My husband remarked rather dryly that it was because I didn't put any pressure on him to perform like a circus lion.
