Well as you can see Iím writing about what my pregnancy been like. Well I had a little morning sickness but I wouldn't call that morning sickness b/c mine happened all day. Iím three months pregnant I got my ultrasound. I almost cried when I got to see my baby move and the little hands. I donít really care about what Iím having. But I hope I have a girl or a boy I donít know. My doctor couldnít find my baby's heart beat and when I went to go get my ultrasound they showed me were my baby's heart was and that it was beating fine. If it's a boy Iím going to name it again Matthew, and if it's a girl Hope I couldnít find what a good middle name could be for a name Hope but I donít care I like the name Hope.


Baby waved hello!

My nine year old went into depression when I told her we were expecting a baby. I took her with for my 12 weeks scan and as my husband and her were watching, the baby's hand moved up at which point my daughter screamed "mymmy mummy did you see that, baby saw I was here and she waved hello! Baby can see her sister is here! From there on, she can't wait for the baby to come. That was our little miracle!


I'm going to be a mommy

I had figured out at the beginning of September 4, 2007 that I was pregnant. I had taken a pregnancy test and it came up positive...two pink lines and all. To be honest I completely freaked...I'm only 18 years old just graduated from high school this year and still living with my parents until I can get on my own two feet. My boyfriend freaked as well because he was clueless as what to do at the moment. We hadn't told anyone except close friends I had kept the secret from my parents because him and me wanted to wait until I had gone to the doctor for my first appointment. Well I still hadn't have had my appointment and about two weeks later people at work had started to figure out that I was pregnant due to my morning sickness/nausea.

Since my mother also worked at the same place and gossip goes around like crazy I had to tell her before someone else did. Letís just say when she first heard the news she bluntly told me it was not what she was expecting. Nor did my dad take it too well.... he and my brother both told me they refuse to see my boyfriend the father of my baby for some time until they know they wonít kill him when they did look at him.

My mother eventually was taking it better and was pronouncing proudly she was going to be a grandma. Though the situation isnít the greatest she is happy for the new little addition. We are both hoping I will have a girl and have already began buying things that could go either way for the child. We are so excited and the father is being supportive saying he wants to supply for the baby and buy the bigger things like a crib and stroller.

When I went to my first appointment I got an ultra sound right away even though I was only eight weeks along and the doctor didn't even test if I was pregnant. But when I say the baby. I was like...oh wow its real and I smiled. I love saying I'm going to be a mommy. I can't wait for mine and my boyfriend's child. I wish I was living on my own but every child is a blessing.


Is this normal?

My fiancť and I are trying to get pregnant. I think I might be, but Iím not sure. This morning I had my hand on my lower abdomen, below my navel, and I felt a pulse. It was fairly strong, and it was steady. Itís usually hard to find my pulse, so this seems really strange to me. Iíve been trying to find information about where it's normal to find a pulse, but haven't had much success.


2nd suprise

Took a test with my fiancť Chad in his bathroom. The stick immediately turned blue both horizontally and vertically crap I thought, then I realized Chad was amazed. He kept watching the test spread all the way past the control window and then a huge grin spread across his face he silently clapped his hands and gave me a huge hug. Ever since then he has been in family mode. I already have a 3 and a 1/2 year old named Tanis. Chad is excited to be a family he had a pretty unstable family life and swears to offer his children much more.
