Day 1

Hi I am Kahliah and I am going to be starting the process to make a baby. I am will be 29 soon and I did want I wanted with my career but I forgot to have a baby?! LOL I am at the point in my life where I would like to have a child. I am about 80% ready. I am no longer looking for the right man of my dreams, now I am looking for the right sperm! :)

I am learning as much as I can about Artificial insemination before I take the leap. I have read more books then I wanted to on being a single mother. My mom was a single mother for most of my life and she did a good job.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hi! I have looked through the multitude of questions, but have found none quite like my own. I have recently found out that I am 9 weeks pregnant. I asked my doctor about diet and exercise (I am in good shape and exercise a lot) to which his response was to change nothing.

I am not the healthiest eater but I'm thin. I go to websites and friends and all I hear are "the first trimester is the most critical, make sure you're..." from eating more frequent healthy snacks, to slowing my exercise, to no heavy lifting. I just don't know where to begin.

pregnant!

[03.10.09]

I took at at home pregnancy test March 3rd (actually, 10 home pregnancy test...all showed up positive in less than a minute!). I had a blood test done March 5th to confirm my pregnancy. My first ultrasound/obgyn appointment is March 25th at 9:15. I have so many different emotions going through my head right now it's hard to even sit down and concentrate long enough to write this entry!
