What are the chances I could still have a vaginal delivery with vaginal warts? What are the risks if I do have a vaginal delivery?
Preparing for Pregnancy
My fiance and I are getting married on October 2nd. I went off birth control 2 months ago (we aren't having sex until the wedding) so I have been relearning my cycles and they still haven't changed since before I went on the pill. 29 days and a 4-5 day period. With that information wouldn't you know that I would be ovulating on my honeymoon! We aren't "planning" a pregnancy but are going to put the timing in God's hands so we aren't going to exercise any birth control right now. We have been together for nearly 2 years and feel called to have a child soon. My fiance would like nothing better than to have a honeymoon baby. I would welcome a baby with open arms at any point in the near future. I do sometimes wonder how I will cope with a new baby while starting midwifery school, but if it is part of God's plan than He will provide what we need and give me the strength and patience.
So, anywho. I have these really great prenatal vitamins that are all organic and super high folic acid and other nutrience and.... they are disgusting!!!! I don't know who they think they would be fooling with "vanilla" flavor! I don't have a gag reflex (could stick a spoon to my trechia and nothing), but these make me gag. Once they are down the settle great and I feel great taking them, but oh my. Why do the things that are best for you go down hard! But they are the best so I will be miserable for a few seconds for a very healthy body and someday baby.
Some books that I have found I love are, The Natural Pregnancy Book by Aviva Jill Romm; Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin; Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin; Baby Catcher by Peggy Vincent.
I try to eat mostly organic although I do tend to contradict my ways a few times a month with fast food. This is a habit I plan to break! But what can I say, I was raised a typical American. Although the adult me is turning out to want to go down a more pre-industrial revolution road as does my husband-to-be. He is excited to get to a point in our lives when we are nearly completely self sufficient. He also wants 5 children total (we have a 2 1/2 year old already, step child for me), so that means 4 on my part! This will not be my "first" pregnancy but it will probably be my first live when I concieve. I concieved last year and lost it because I was on the pill. In my gut I knew I was pregnant but everyone convinced me to continue my pills against my better judgment. It resulted in a very painful miscarriage both emotionally and physically. It tears at you knowing that you did something that made you lose a life so near to you.
I am excited to see that stick turn positive in the next 3 months- 1 year and I hope what ever life I am blessed to carry will be healthy because no matter what it will be wanted and loved. I will be glad to record things on here and keep anyone remotely interested posted. So until wedding night I will just be tracking my cycles then will will be on baby alert after that!
So today is day 1 of my quest to become pregnant. I stopped taking my birth control pills after my last period which started exactly 21 days ago. Technically, I could already be pregnant, but I just don't think that it's going to happen so fast. I'll know in a week I suppose, but I'm confident that it's going to take until August or September for it to happen. We'll see, everything will come together when it's supposed to.
Hello, I Have Been with my boyfriend for over 14 months now and i am getting really broody as i have grown up with 5 nephews they are now embetween the ages of 8-15 months. My boyfriend has one child who he doesn't get to see but because of that he won't have a child with me. I also have the implant but he said i can't get it out because he doesn't want me to get pregnant. I really want a baby and have thought about it for a long time now.
what shall i do????
Well I've decided that I'd really like to be a mom someday. My boyfriend has two children already, ages 10 and 11. I treat them like my own and love them to death, but like his daughter says.. "I'm a mom, but not a real one". Both live with us full time because their mom ran off with some dude to FL about a year ago and never even calls. We just found out she was arrested for selling coke... what a winner. Anyway, his son has severe autism and can be a handful. We have our whole house under lock-and-key, not to mention he started urinating anywhere he pleases.

I am worried that this journey may difficult, first I am 35 years old, I have sleep apnea - been treated for the past 4 years with a c-pap- and I am over weight. I graduated in May of 2009 and I have been working on getting into shape & eating better, but the weight is very slow to come off.
