Preparing for Pregnancy Blogs

  • U.S. preterm births hit new low - still work to do!

    The March of Dimes just released the 2012 Premature Birth Report Card. The U.S. has hit a new 10 year low for preterm births -- a significant improvement now registering at 11.7%! Still, overall, the U.S. scores a "C" as we continue to have a high rate of preterm births comparatively. This is a clear indication of work to be done!

    If only missing period, you can’t be sure about your pregnancy. But if you experience more following signs, you can be sure that you have already had a baby!

  • Getting Pregnant

    Though getting pregnant seems easy, the process often requires exquisite timing. Normally, it takes several months or sometimes even years to get pregnant.

  • Return of the Manic Episode

    Amazing how a great end to a bad year can then turn into the start of a new year that is going to be a repeat of the bad year.

    Translation: the return of the manic episode.

    7 days until my surgery and then we can let the baby making begin! :)

  • Healthy Diet Lowers Risk of Birth Defects

  • 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!

  • Not Pregnant...again

    I just got my third period after going off birth control and I'm getting pretty antsy. I really want to have a baby and start a family.

  • Emotional Mess

    Today I am a mess.

  • Too Tired

    So I wanted this to be the month that I conceived. I wanted it so bad! I ovulated around my birthday (last weekend) and it would have been the perfect birthday present!

  • Afraid to take the test

    I am a new memeber to this site and the ability to blog has got he hooked. I feel like I finally talk about what I feel and what I am going through and maybe someone will TRULY understand.

  • Lonely.

    Me and my boyfriend are in this together but sometimes I really feel like im going about this all by myself and I wish I had someone to talk to...

  • Getting to the Mountaintop

    Several years ago, there were not many websites devoted to conception, birth, etc. when I was pregnant with my first child. I was forced to read pamphlets from my doctor's office, advice from older female relatives (being very careful because they are superstitious) and a generalized book on pregnancy that a friend had lend to me. So, imagine my surprise to find oodles of sites listed when I searched the Net simply using the word "pregnancy."
