crampy but pregnant is it ok?

Three weeks ago I went for a pregnancy test and it came out NEGATIVE but a week later I tested at home and it was POSITIVE! Then three days after I got a very serious pain on my left side down stomach I visited a gynae and suggested to do an ultrasound to check whether the baby is in right position, the results came out NOTHING IN THE WOMB but UPT POSITIVE! I almost fainted but the doc suggested a second opinion from another Gynae so we went and he told us that he can not decide to operate coz the pregnancy is still too small to be seen on the ultrasound and gave us two weeks or if the pains gets severe I go back but from that day have not had anymore pains on my left side but I'm crampy and can not enjoy sex anymore! I have this fear that I may misscarry or you know....... please help , is it normal to be crampy on the early pregnancy? Is there anyone who's going thru the same thing .... please share, or could I be having an ectopic pregnancy???





I recently found out I was pregnant about a week ago. I'm 21 going on 22 next month and have been married for a lil' over a year now. The thing is when my husband and I found out the news, we were just in a state of shock. We were not trying to have a baby it's just one of those things that just " kinda happened." I'm just in a numb state right now... I don't feel excited nor do I feel depressed about the situation and neither does my husband. All I know is that I'm extremely sensitive and always hungry!!! This will be our first child so hopefully we will come out of denial and start enjoying our pregnancy.


Suprise pregnancy

I went to the doctor two days ago because I was up crying hysterically the previous night. I figured it had something to do with my irregular periods, or the fact that I was diagnosed with PCOS years ago. Before I could leave with my prescription for Zoloft, she wanted me to take a pregnancy test. I am 23 and have been having unprotected sex with my husband for 3 years, and I have always figured we would need to seek help to get pregnant. So imagine the shock when the Dr. came in the room and said "Well, you're so moody right now 'cause youre pregnant!" It is Friday today, I am waiting to get the Ultrasound on Tuesday to see how far along I am. I still cannot convince myself that this is all real. I can't shake the feeling that I will soon wake up, and this dream will be over. The anxiety is overwhelming as I wait, and wait, to get that ultrasound done..... I have taken 2 more tests at home for some reason, I think to assure myself that this is real, and also partly because I love the rush of seeing that Pink line in the "pregnant" Section.



I am 19 years old going on 20 July 19th. I have been with my fiance for a year and half. Before I found out I was pregnant, I was planning on going away to school to persue my dreams of becoming a lawyer or professor. I have wanted this ever since I was a little girl. My fiance and I were going to break up. He was going away to Camden, New Jersey to do missionary work. We loved each other very much but we wanted to follow our dreams. Then we found out I was pregnant... I told him it was inevitable. We never used any protection. Then we started too. But one night we didn't and that was the night of conception. I was so happy to find out I was pregnant because I absolutely love children but at the same time I feel like my dreams are over.

I feel like I will have to give up everything I ever dreamed of. I am starting to feel really sad. I don't go out anymore. I hate going to work now. Sometimes I am so happy to be having a baby but some days I wish for a miscarriage. I hate feeling that way because I don't believe in abortions.

I am scarred that I will have Post Partum Depression when the baby is born. My family does not help at all. My father is financially supportive but emotionally he is horrible. He barely talks to me. Everyone expected me to go to college and be successful since I started a career in business at 18 they figured I would accomplish more. I feel that I still can but..I doubt myself alot now.

I have been so stressed out that I am sick with a cold. I have cried so much that my tears made me sick. I just want moral support. My fiance is great but I just wish my family was behind me as well. I wish I didn't feel this way. God Bless!


My little Miracle

I have been off of birth control for over 3 years. In Febuary of 06 my husband and I decided it was time to go to a specialist to find out why we had not conceived. After a number of tests and the news that my left tube was blocked, my doctor had decided that it was time for surgery to remove the blockage. My husband and I did not feel like this is what we were supposed to do. The stress of of going to the doctor every week to get blood taken and have tests run was getting the best of me and the emotional rollercoaster was a bit too much to handle. So in late May, we decided to give it a break "Let God do whatever and not try" and then came our little miracle. I got pregnant immediately. I just relaxed, went on vacation for 2 weeks and came home preggo!!! Thank you Jesus becuase Your timing is perfect!!!!

A very happy first time mommy!!!!
