Preparing for Baby

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.

Laiken's Gonna be a Big Sister

We have been trying to get pregnant since Nov 2008 and with every month and menstrual cycle that came it was always disappointing. But let me tell you know; Laiken's gonna be a bid sister! She is so excited and already says "baby mommies tummy!" It is so cute! She will be 2 in May and my husband and I can't wait for her to be a big sister and have a baby in the house again! I am a NICU nurse so I'm always around babies and infants but it's just not the same when it's not yours.

It's Your Birthright! Understanding Your Rights During Labor and Delivery

An expectant mother can feel like a specimen and not like a person with legal rights and individual preferences. Expectant mothers do have the right to control their medical care, to make choices based on information and to refuse care. Learning what your legal rights are will help you feel more in charge.

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.
