    Well we have been TTC for like 5 months now and I know it doesnt happen overnight but I am 23, in good health, nothing wrong with me, I just dont understand. In 2007 I had a miscarriage due to an abusive relationship. I want a baby so bad and monday I took a pregnancy test it said yes, next 2 ones I took said no, apparently I got a bad batch. Today I just started my period. I just feel like a failure in a way because I feel like it will just never happen and I will never get to be a mom! My husband already has 2 kids from a previous marriage so I sometimes feel like he doesn’t care as much as I do. He was suppose to go to the doc about fertility and make sure everything on his end was good, he made the appointment just never went and never rescheduled. Has anyone been through this and had a baby? Please share. Thanks!

    We just found out that after just 3 months of trying, we are expecting a baby. 5 weeks gone at this point. Having read around, I know that up until 3 months we shouldn’t get ‘too’ excited, and we don’t want to announce it to friends and family until then. However, we have no idea quite how excited to get ourselves. What are the odds of a pregnancy failing between now and 3 months? Should we be making plans or crossing fingers?

    I am having a difficult time understanding why this has happened to me… i just want to know why an ectopic pregnancy would happen to someone as healthy as me? never had any issues with my periods, they were always on time. never irregular. i had a great aunt once who had 2 ectopic pregnancies but that was after having one healthy baby. this was my first. i just want to know what are some reasons i could have gotten it? i dont smoke, and i’ve only had sex with my husband. (i’ve read that those two were among some reasons i could have gotten it.)
    no birth control or anything. i used birth control once when i was a teenager because i was having really bad period pains and they said it could regulate the pains. but i was only on it for a month because i hated it. now me and my husband are against birth control.

    I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and in a high risk pregnancy (due to a history of stillbirth). I was so excited when I got pregnant again and thought that I could work and go to school throughout my pregnancy. I am a junior at college and decided to take only one class this semester. I will be induced in 3-4 weeks. I thought that I would just take 2 weeks off from this class (when the baby’s born) and then go back to finish the semester. And I would work part time until being induced. Well, I am a little embarrassed to say that I am not keeping up in this class. I would like to withdraw but feel ashamed to tell my husband and family. If I am having trouble keeping up in this class now, how the heck am I going to make it after the baby is born. I will be going back full time for next semester. Do you think it would be bad if I withdrew? I only work about 2 days a weeks and go to the doctor 2 days a week, so I feel like such a loser for not being able to handle this one class. But on the other hand, I think to myself, hey, I am in a high risk pregnancy and want these last few weeks to relax and get ready for my baby! And I want that time with her after she is born! I don’t want my 2 weeks off to be spent studying and then leaving her to go to class! And on top of it, the class is paid for. Which makes me feel worse, because it’s money that we can’t get back. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I can’t help but feel my husband is not overly interested in the pregnancy. I am not sure if it is me being over demanding or having high expectations but he does not seem that interested. I know he will be a great Dad but I would love it if he asked more questions or was generally more interested. I can’t help but feel he is worried how things are going to change etc. We have been together for five years and he is 32 and I am 30 so it is not as if he is a not old enough. He seems to think he is still a kid himself! I suppose this is quite common. How involved in your pregnancy is your partner?

    Hi, i am basically 18 weeks pregnant and i havent been able to feel my baby move (not kick, MOVE) around. i read in my book that between 16 and 20 weeks you should be able to feel the baby move a little bit. I am really worried that my baby may not be alive anymore and i have my next ultrasound this friday and im scared that the person will tell me that my baby is”gone” :( . I have been eating properly, eating cooked veggies every night with supper. I have not been eating tons of junk food or anything. I always drink water and on weekends i have a little bit of pop. Please can ANYONE tell me (in their own opinion) if my baby would still be alive or what. I just need a sense of relief to know that my baby would be/is going to be okay. I also read in my book that by 18 weeks the baby would be about the length of a banana. So anyway, if anyone could PLEASE give me any kind of advice or anything, (no websites telling me what you want to say just make it be your own thoughts) reply asap. thanks in advanced.
    I have not had any kind of morning sickness or anything at all. the only thing that im having right now is phlegm (im assuming it would be one of the signs of pregnancy which is extra saliva, read that in my book) its not from a cold or anything, i just get it every so often.
    and this is also my 1st pregnancy.

    I’m 33 weeks pregnant with my first and these are my complaints:
    -Dull back pain
    -Ribs always hurt
    -My baby stretches and kicks in some spots that cause lots of pain!
    -I have lots of contractions that don’t do anything to my cervix but I get more than 10 an hour sometimes (I’ve been to L&D and they sent me home)
    -I get up about 3-4 times in the night to go pee
    -I have a hemorrhoid
    -I’ve had 5 yeast infections that keep coming back even after I treat them
    -I leak a lot of colostrum
    -I have no self confidence left so I always feel very unattractive and huge even though I’ve only gained 20lbs and it’s all belly
    -Acid reflux that wakes me up in the night and I choke on it
    -No energy anymore!

    What are your pregnancy complaints? The only people who can every understand is us fellow pregnant women! So rant away!

    So I belong to a local mommy group (we live in Austin, Texas), we’re all pregnant or were when the group started. We just got news that one of the women in our group had her baby, a seemingly healthy baby girl and her first. The shocker was she evidently had been smoking marijuana throughout her pregnancy, and is CPS is now involved. No one in the group knew (or at least admits to knowing). I don’t understand how she could have been smoking all along and it took actually giving birth for it to come out? I don’t believe I have been drug tested…or if I was no one said anything to me about it (as it would have been and still would be negative). Have you ever heard of drug testing only at the hospital in Texas? This is so crazy to me, and I just don’t get it. I tried to do my own research online but I cannot find anything for Texas other than it’s a felony to smoke marijuana while pregnant. Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated!
    So if she was tested by her doctor, the doctor would have said something about her testing positive?
    I am so not talking about myself! I have over six weeks to go, and would never ever smoke marijuana even if I wasn’t pregnant. I guess it just baffled me that she was smoking and nothing happened about it until the baby was born!? But I guess in the grand scheme of things at least she wasn’t on crack!

    Hey everyone, I am 22 weeks pregnant. Have had a really bad cold, the whole works of it. And I am starting to get a little worried. About a week ago I was feeling movement on a regular basis, my stomach was firm and seemed normal pregnancy wise. As of today my stomach feels normal, I don’t feel pregnant.. And it’s starting to freak me out. I’m always worried that something is wrong or will go wrong because of a previous miscarriage. I was wondering if the whole being sick and what not could have done something. Should I be worried at all? I see my doctor in the morning so i’m hoping that all goes well, however I am really worried that she will say something is up in the quick change of everything that’s been going on. Can anyone give me some reassurance that things are okay? Thanks!

    I am currently 28 weeks pregnant w. my first child. This pregnancy was unplanned but none the less I was completely ecstatic about it. Every appt., movement, ultrasound, I have just fallen SO in love w. him. I have wanted him from day ONE, but now as of the past week I have become overly depressed. I have been crying on and off, wondering what I got myself into. I don’t know what to think anymore about anything! Just hit me like a ton of bricks. I wanted him so badly and now I don’t want anything to do w. this pregnancy or child. I am no longer excited but am filled w. guilt, sadness and anger. I feel disgusting for this, but I just feel like I don’t want him here anymore.. I feel like such a horrible person for not wanting this anymore, this poor baby didn’t do anything to me yet I have these thoughts about him.
    I can’t help but think about what if I end up becoming a single mother in the end, I don’t want to have to go through that. I know tons of women are single and take care of their kids just fine on their own but I don’t want that to be me. (Me and my bf are doing just fine but the thought for some reason keeps crossing my mind.) I don’t think I will be a good enough mommy to him, won’t be able to give him everything that he deserves in life.. I just want what’s best for him and I don’t think I can provide it to him..
    I think it finally sunk in that I am really having a baby. Just knowing I will have this helpless precious new life who will need my attention and care 24/7 scares me. I am only 19 and am scared about all this responsibility. I know, if I didn’t want a child I should have been more cautious. But it happened and here I am trying to be an adult and do the right thing.
    I have been considering adoption, although I know in my heart I don’t want to give him up. I guess that thought just eases my mind alittle… I know that this is very selfish of me to be thinking, but I just can’t help it.
    I haven’t talked to anyone (other than my bf) about this because I don’t think anyone will understand what I mean..
    I hope I’m just having some kind of ‘first time mommy jitters’ or something and that they will go away soon. I want nothing more than to be overly excited again and be the best mommy I know I can be.
    Have any other first time mommys ever experienced this? And how did you end up shaking off this feeling?

    I am currently 20 weeks pregnant with my first child, and I am unsure of the sex of the baby.

    I am going to struggle a bit financially with this baby, as I am only 18. I wasn’t ready for a baby, but the BC pill failed me, so here I am dealing with it the best I can.

    I know there are some things you pretty much have to buy new such as a car seat – but what else?
    What things are safe to buy second-hand?
    I will be buying the babies clothes, bedding, bottles etc. brand new, because I just have an issue with those items being second-hand, unless it’s clothing – in good condition – passed down from someone I know.

    I have about $4000 in a savings account, which was to be used for travel next year as I have just finished my high school education, but obviously now that will be going to my baby. Where I live there is also a baby bonus – which is around $5000 to help pay for baby things. $9000 seems a lot right now, but that’s not going to last very long.

    So basically, what should I start buying now, and what should be bought later (if anything)?

    Thanks :)
    The baby bonus is money given to parents by the government to help with the baby. It works out to be about $5000, but I have a feeling that it can change depending on income. It is paid in instalments over a certain period of time. Unfortunately many young mothers use the money for themselves, and not for their babies, which is sad.

    If you don’t mind, I’d love that list of all the baby stuff I will need!

    To the answerer that said I am ignorant, and just a poor teenager; I’ll have you know that I have gone from part-time work to full-time work now that I have finished school. I have worked for the same company for 3 and a half years. I am on the highest salary per hour of people my age. I am not poor, as I am capable of saving. I want the best for my child, and that means I will not use second-hand bottles (think of the germs, people!) or stained clothing. Many couples with both partners working struggle financially when they have a baby. So keep your ignorant opinion to yourself.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who answered my question kindly. It helps me to feel like people actually understand me.

    I am deferring from university for two years, to spend time with my little one, and to work to save as much money as possible. After the two years are up, I am going to study nursing or teaching. My baby will be left with my mother, or enrolled in the childcare facility of the university if it is not too expensive. I see childcare as a good opportunity for socialisation.

    I already have my own car, thank goodness, because that is another huge expense I don’t have to deal with.

    I have been on paxil for about 3.5 years because I suffered from panic attacks. I just heard that paxil is really bad for pregnancy. If I do conceive will I be ok till I see my obgyn? Will she be the one to switch me to something else? I only take 10mg never more and I don’t take it every night cause I forget so threw out the whole week I take it about 4 times. I am so scared of feeling the way I did years before that getting totally off it scares me. Zoloft was very bad for me they had to take me off of it really fast. So has anyone else gone threw this and if so how did your dr go about it during pregnancy?

    I am 17 years old and I am 5 months pregnant… I have been very emotional lately and I have no clue why. I’ve gotten to huge arguments with my family especially my mom and dad, and also my ex boyfriend about the whole baby thing and I just sometimes wonder why me?! I dropped out of high school and I am at home all the time trying to make my family happy, but the only people i can rely on right now are my friends. Is it normal to feel depressed/emotional while your pregnant? I’m very scared…….. I don’t want to hurt myself or the others around me. I am thinking maybe it is because i am young and i was so clueless about having sex at my age but i hope someone understands me and gives me advice on what to do thank you so much

    I (Female 21 years old) have been seeing a guy (22 years old) for 9 months now, 6 months of these long distance but spoke to eachother almost everyday. We had been using contraception and I am 5 weeks pregnant by accident I found out last Wednesday and told him straight away. We spoke on the phone and seemed stressed and shocked however since then he has not acted himself.

    I contacted him that night and he had told me he wants space and needs time to think. Yesterday I was in hospital for a few hours with abdominal pains, I was then discharged if any symptoms worsen to go back, I had told him I was in hospital, kept him informed by text and he ignored it and my calls. He had been avoiding me for 2 days.

    Only until I rang him from a friend’s phone last night did he answer he seemed very stressed and anxious. He is unsure whether I am telling him the truth about the hospital drama, is confused, still needs time to think but wants to come to my scan with me on Monday. He apologied for feeling like this but is very confused.

    I really dont know what to do, I need him right now and although I respect his space i felt it was appropriate for me to contact him yesterday when in hospital not only that I am the one who needs to comfort as I am carrying the baby! I dont understand this all help please..

    He isnt keen on keeping him from what our chat was about when I first told him but could he be reconsidering this?

    Could this be him genuinely being a typical man and freaking out?
    Could he be mentally abusing me knowing that I am in a bad place right now as I am in also great shock myself and feeling c**p with pregnancy symptoms?
    Or could he be irresponsible of his own actions and fail to take any responsibility?

    **Contraception WAS used and this was not planned to clarify!**
    **Contraception WAS used and this was not planned to clarify!**
    Please do not judge, When I said I used contraception I meant it – We had an accident with the condom so I took levonelle the morning after pill the next day We did everything we possibly good and I have to disagree obviously not all contraceptives work and in the situation I was left in I did all I possibly could. I have been seeing this guy since May as well as speaking to him very frequently everydaty/every couple of days and since living not far from him for nearly 3 months now and seeing him a lot its a bit more to Sex! To clarify.

    I ask this based on a question I just answered for someone. Why do some pregnant women use their pregnancy as an excuse and almost seem to act disabled from it? It’s a condition,not a disability,and they should still be required to do their jobs (unless a doctor says they can’t) and shouldn’t be having someone else working with them making them do everything for them b/c they “don’t feel good” or are “tired and uncomfortable”,etc. Why do some women make pregnancies out like a disability instead of a condition? I can understand it if it’s a high risk pregnancy,but most of them where women act this/that way are not. Why do some pregnant women assume that ppl should be at their beck and call and treat pregnancy as a disability and not just a condition? Not pointing at anyone just so you guys know :) just wondering why some people do this,act like it’s a disability and they can’t do anything,they’re forbidden from everything,when all it is is that sometimes you have to be a bit easier on your body? It’s a condition,not a disability.
    No,I asked this b/c a girl just asked a question saying how lazy a woman she works with is,and how she demands she do everything for her,even though it’s just a simple retail job. Even rush to the food court b/c she “feels so sick” and then wolfs down a whole burger with no problem. I was just asking why some women feel it’s necessary to act like this? Not saying all of you do,heck,I’m sure most of you don’t,but why do some women feel it’s ok to act like that?
    Um yea,I’ve been pregnant. Three times. There’s nothing besides heavy lifting that you’re not supposed to do,and my doctors always told me to just not life weight that was heavier than the weight I lifted before I was pregnant. There’s really not too much you CAN’T do,it’s not a disability,it’s a condition. Don’t assume I’ve never been pregnant/had kids just b/c I KNOW that pregnancy isn’t a disability,it’s a condition. Yea,you’ve got to be more careful,especially with what chemicals you use and such,but how dare you think I’ve never been pregnant when I’ve had 3 kids,and dealt with pregnancy just as much as you all have. With some users,more than they have. It’s not that bad. It’s a condition,not a disability.

    Can I get pregnant right after ectopic pregnancy?
    If there was no or little damage to my uterus and tube after an ectopic pregnancy, can somebody get pregnant after the ectopic fast? This may seem like a silly question but I heard that after a “regular” pregnancy women are more fertile. So since I would have experienced those hormones during my ectopic pregnancy, does this make me more fertile is I had little damage to my internal organs? My OBGYN claims that I am perfectly healthy and shouldn’t have problems getting pregnant. He also claims I am fertile. So I guess I just want to know if my chances are increased, decreased or the same.
    *** I am not looking to find out the odds of another ectopic…I am aware. I just want to know chances of conception.
    I have asked this question in different topic areas…and didn’t have luck with answers…hopefully this one is better suited.

    I am 28 weeks and I am 5’5″ and was 128lbs before I got pregnant. I have gained a total of 17 lbs so far. At my last check up I had gained 6 lbs in 4 weeks and my doctor was getting on to me about how I need to watch my weight. From everything I have read, i haven’t gained too much weight. I eat a pretty healthy diet and have my full servings of fruits and vegetables each day. I think it might just be my body trying to catch up because I didn’t gain any weight in the beginning of my pregnancy. My baby is the right size and all tests and ultrasounds have been perfect. So my question is do you think a weight gain of 17lbs is too much for 28 weeks??
    I’m just asking because he kept saying “you need to watch this” He made it seem like I gained 20lbs since the last time he saw me.

    I am 9 weeks pregnant today and just cant take life anymore. This was an unexpected pregnancy ( i was on the pill) and I already have a 5 year old and im only 23. I dont recall being this out of control with my first daughter. I cry about EVERYTHING and it drives me nuts. I was thinking about an abortion but decided i wouldnt be able to live with myself. I have been to the doctor and have the ultrasound on the fridge and it kills me to think about hurting the poor thing…my boyfriend is overly excited and has been trying his best to be nice to me even with my moods. i have currently asked him to leave while i try to straigthen things out…am i being selfish or psycho or does anyone feel this way?

    hi guys i just need some help with my pregnancy,

    Im currently 16 weeks pregnant with a subchorionic hematoma, and i was wondering what is the chances?

    At 8 weeks i was rushed to hospital due to bleeding, i was in no pain though, the bleed lasted for roughly 3 hours and i was sent home, 2 hours later the bleeding started again with alot of pain and really bad clotting (like the size of a golf ball) i was rushed back to hospital where the doctors/nurses told me i would have to wait till the morning for an ultrasound (as it was 11pm the clinic wasnt open)

    the next morning i had an ultrasound and they said the baby was alive and healthy but i had a smal SCH 2.5cm

    3 weeks later at 11 weeks i started bleeding again with bad cramps, this time it was worse, i was rushed back to hospital and had the same outcome although the SCH had reduced in size, it was now 2cm

    at 13 weeks i was rushed to hospital again with very bad bleeding, i was changing my pad every 20-30min and sometimes it would leak though (mind you i was wearing the hospital maternity pads) they called in the doctor that was on “stand by” (as yet again it was 11pm) the doctor performed a internal examination where he said my cervix was closed. the next day i went for a ultrasound and they said that the SCH was still there is was still 2cm and that there was a small seperation (but it wouldnt effect the baby as it wasnt near the placenta)

    13 weeks and 3 days i had my down syndrome testings they said the bleed had gotten bigger it was now 5cm,

    at 14 weeks 3 days i had another ultrasound which the bleed had gotten bigger to 19.3 cc (cubic cm)

    15 weeks pregnant i started bleeding brown blood, i rang my midwife and they told me brown blood is just old blood and its normally good news. i am going for an ultrasound tomorrow morning but i would like to know what my chances are of the baby surviving ?

    Hi Friends,

    I am 15 weeks pregnant now. I went to visit my doctor last saturday and he asked me to undergo a Triple Screen Test as it has become a common test for pregnancy. I understand it is for understanding if the baby may suffer out of any genetic disorders. But I have read in many websites that, it may not always provide accurate results and it may lead to further more tests in future.
    I will be gratefull if anyone of you have undergone such tests and if it is mandatory to undergo a Triple Screen Test. Why do present day doctors require to see the test results like this ?
