Only 20 but Ready

I've been with my boyfriend for almost a year now. I'm still in college, but we have a house together. He owns his own construction company, and although he is much older than I we couldn't be more in love.
I just don't know how I am going to break it to my family. They don't like the fact that we live together let alone having a baby before marriage I'm sure. We've been planning to get married since 6 months (picked out rings and everything). We just fear if we do it right now they'll think it's only because of the baby and thats absolutely not the case.
I am 9wks and we just got our little ultra sounds pics and heard the heartbeat last week. It was the most beautiful thing Ive ever listened to. We are so blessed. This whole experience has been amazing so far. Minus the nausea, morning sickness, bloating, and fatigue. You all know how it is though!! I cant wait to start showing. Love those little baby bellies!!! :)


Hanging in there update...

Hey guys. I posted back in Jan 2010 in TTC section. The next month I found out I was pregnant after about 7 months of trying. My husband and I were over the moon!I am 20 and he is 23. I am a full time student online and work 40 hours a week. I am curently 12 wks 3 days pregnant! Can't wait til week 13 so I can officially be in 2nd trumester. Congratulations to all women TTC pregnancy and just had babies. Its a wonderful thing! I knew the day before I missed my period that I was pregnant. Womens intuition I guess. I've been a little sick and throwing up but take phenergan for that. Already showing some. I weighed 110 when I got pregnant so I guess its normal. I've had to run to pee it seems like every 30 minutes and am super tired. My clothes se fitting tighter and I'm craving some stuff but not weird things. So far its been a wonderful pregnancy othe than a couple of scares. When I was 6 wks 5 days I started bleeding and cramping and it was some kind of hemotoma that had burst. The doctor said it was okay and baby was okay. And it happened again at 12 wks 1 day. I'm good right now. The baby is growing like a weed and looks good. Just wanted to let everyone know it will happen and when it does it goes by so fast. Enjoy everthing from being sick to tired to having to pee bc it flies by.


Finding out.

Hey my name is Tamsin im 26 years old and discoved a few weeks ago that im pregnant with my third child. Im currently 7wks+6d and very excited. I was a little unsure at first with this pregnancy because it wasnt planned i was on the pill u see but missed a few and become pregnant. Anyway my family are very supportive and always will be my other two children are delighted my husbaund is still getting used to the idea, but that will all change soon enough congrats to u all happy nine months. xx


I hope this time it's right

Hola my fellow prego amigas. I am 18 and possibly pregnant for the second time. Last year I had found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks. The big mistake was that I had found out on my mom's birthday which was also the day my ex had broken up with me. Big old uh-oh right?
Well, I began crying hysterically in the bathroom once the little + sign of life popped up because I knew my mother wouldn't accept it, and sure enough, she walked in, looked at me, and said just three words, "abortion or out". I told her out because I wasn't about to kill my baby and I thought the father would wind up being supportive once he knew.
So I was out of the house and sleeping on my brother's couch for a week and didn't get any calls from my mom or my ex and neither of them would call back when I tried to call them. By the end of the week my back was killing me and the smell of my brothers dirty dog (who never got bathed and slept right below the couch) was making me want to constantly throw-up and my mother finally called me saying she wanted to have a meeting with me and her therapist. I halfheartedly agreed and she picked me up and brought me there. In the room was her therapist/ best friend and a few of their best friends who were all mothers at early ages. Long story short, they guilted me into getting an abortion saying that it would be the best thing for not only me, but the baby as well. It was the most physically and emotionally painful thing I have ever experienced.
Now, March 23, 2010, EXACTLY one whole year since I last found out I was pregnant (yes it is my mothers birthday again), I believe I am pregnant again by my new boyfriend who is almost 20. I am still living with my mother but this time I have a man who is still here for me and is full-on supportive. We are deeply in love and nervous but excited beyond belief. He has a job and we are both finishing our senior years in high school, but we know we can do this if I am. And even though we have officially been together for only a month and a half, we were best friends for over a year and completely trust and love each other.
Why I strongly believe I am again is because I have almost ALL of the possible symptoms. My veins in my breasts are very noticeable, I am constantly falling asleep throughout the day and feel too tired to make it up my usually easy school steps, I can't seem to get full when I eat and want to always eat, my lower back is aching, my legs are cramping, I have these little twinges and cramps in my uterus at times, my nipples are really sensitive, my body temperature has risen, my heart rate is faster, and I have lots of gas. lol
So as you can see, it's getting pretty obvious and I'm going to try to hide it from my mom for the first couple of months until my boyfriend and I have enough money saved up to get us started in our own place ( he's living with his parents as well), because there is no way I am going through what happened last year EVER agian. Wish me luck! <3


I'm pregnant! What?!

Hey girls, I'm 15 and 6w3d pregnant, my boyfriend and I are still together and plan to be for the rest of our lives. When I found i was pregnant, I was scared, only because my sister got pregnant at 17 and my parents freaked and wanted her to get an abortion, and I'm 2 years younger! I was actually excited, because I love children and so does my boyfriend. However, my family isn't really financhially stable, and I don't have a job so I freaked even thinking about telling them. My sister told my mom and my mom was yelling and breaking dishes and just screaming and crying...and my dad still doesn't know! He's under so much stress with work and he has anxiety, and I'm a daddy girl and I couldn't imagine telling him:/ I never once considered abortion or adoption, I didn't want someone else raising my baby. I also got barely any pregnancy symptoms, I just had slight sore breasts and abdominal pain that felt like gas/period cramps, and felt nauseas about only 2 weeks into my pregnancy. My boyfriends family is very supportive and I'm so grateful for them and my boyfriend. I know it's going to be hard, but I can't wait for the first kick and when I can hold my baby:)
