About Your Man

Month 1 and 3 weeks

I don't know what to do about Joe. He wants nothing to do with the baby or me. I can care less about me but the baby now, come on. I know hes scared. He won't even take the DNA test. that right there tells me he going to try and dip out after Job Corps. I'm not sure if i can have this baby. What do i tell them when they ask about their dad? Oh man. I feel really sick. What can I do to get him to talk to me?

QUESTION

We are nine weeks pregnant and I feel like @#$#@. My husband doesn't get it. His attitude is that since I don't "look" pregnant then I shouldn't be complaining.

I'll be honest. Right now I AM a grouch after feeling exhausted, nauseous 24/7, and then trying to juggle my normal routine (at work and home.)

I don't expect him to make it better but can't a guy have SOME sympathy?

QUESTION

I'm 12 weeks pregnant and experiencing some complications. I've been put on pelvic rest. How do I get my husband to understand that it means nothing can enter? The rest is till 13-14 weeks so there are another 1 -2 weeks yet.

I don't really have the interest in sex right now either. How can I convey that so he understands?

Thanks,
Becki

Recurring Pregnancy Dreams

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
My name is Kim. For the past few weeks now I have been having dreams that I am pregnant.Sometimes, I am in mid pregnancy and I can literally feel the baby moving. Then there was a dream that I was only 2 months along.

I will admit, I am wanting to be a mother very much. It is a strong desire. I do not know what the dreams mean, if anything. Yet, they are so real. At the time of the dreams, I wasn't thinking of it at all.

I also feel a boy. What is the meaning to these?

Thank you so much.
Kim

Well here I am, 37, mum to a dear daughter who has just turned 10 - literally a few days after we conceived. :) We are foster carers and have been for 5 years now, and adopted a lovely little girl who is now 4 and a half. We are fortunate to have such wonderful daughters and have a wonderful relationship with them both.
