My husband and I have been together for 12 years and he's 52, i am 38. We never wanted kids but I found out last week Friday that I'm 9 weeks pregnant! I cannot believe that I didn't pick up on the symptoms and now that I know I'm pregnant it's almost like my body knows it's got permission now to "look" pregnant. I am already 2 bra sizes bigger and don't fit into any of my clothes. I wasn't thin to begin with and was trying hard to lose weight for December holiday. No wonder it didn't work. My worry is how big will I be at full term?! Can anybody tell me: is the speed of growing breasts any indication if I might be carying twins? It is likely for me to have.

Oh yes, I am pregnant!Well, I am pregnant and enthusiastic about it! My husband and I had tried for so long that we had finally given up the idea of having a baby. I used to be upset every month and tears would follow. Then I got very excited about my sister in law being pregnant and I began cross stitching bibs for the family babies for she was expecting twins. I forgot about myself so much that I didn't even noticed I missed my period. My nipples hurt and morning sickness suddenly changed my life! I went to the doctor for test and it's now confirmed I am six weeks pregnant! My body loves the changes and I am very thrilled at the idea of having a bump! And I am very proud to tell everybody that I am expecting. Last week in London I bought some maternity lingerie, bras first because the ones I was wearing were bothering me and maternity clothes, really trendy!. The bond with my baby is very strong and when my husband put on some classical music the baby loves it too! My husband is very thoughtful and caring and when he rubs oil around my hurting nipples passion grows and when morning sickness is gone we can love each other more more and we know the baby feels reassured and we cannot wait to see him. We got from the attic our old nursery rhymes books and we are writing some stories to read to him at bedtime. And somehow I feel it's a boy!
First ExperienceHi all, I'm 26y.o and 8weeks pregnant. This is my first pregnancy and i've been having a lot of nausea and vomitting and I feel like I cannot do anything... I even wonder how come those mom with four children could bare the misserable of being pregnant! I feel like being in a neverending bad mood, everything in my life changed. But when I went to the doctor last week and he showed me the baby's heartbeat, I almost cry, because I realized that i'm making a life here.. and I think its worth it.. I have tried everything to get my mood back, but it just keep on swinging, depending on the nausea.. I really hope that the nausea will last only until the three months.
Heart BurnThis is my third pregnancy Iím 11 Wks and 5 days today, and I have to admit Iím not enjoying it due to feeling constantly unwell.
With my first child I had really bad heart burn and it did not help if I eat the smallest or biggest meal it would start regardless. I still remember the day I had my first child 10lb 2oz, and the first thing I eat after was a bowl of cereal and felt great that I had no heart burn and there was room in my stomach to eat.
My second pregnancy I did not suffer at all with he was born 2 weeks early 10lb.
Now to my current pregnancy, I donít feel as bad as my first but I constantly worry that I will have this feeling all the way through like I did with my first, and I think this is making me feel down. I try all the remedies that people suggest but nothing seems to help.
I just have to keep thinking about that first bowl of cereal and hope that it gets me through!
