I found out I was pregnant two weeks ago.

After the first week of knowing I started to cramp and bleed so I went to the ER. I didn't miscarry but I was bleeding from where the placenta is going to attach to something later on down the road. I still worry everyday that something will happen.

I did get to hear the heartbeat but am wondering when I will know for sure that I am in the clear for anything bad happening.


My 4th pregnancy with 3 past Miscarriages

I am almost 40 and this is our 4th pregnancy. I have had 3 failed pregnancies (took tests/didn't reveal any abnormality). This is our 4th pregnancy and I am about 7 weeks along. Thus far, everything seems to be going fairly good. We had a sonogram done on last week (Maybe 10, 2007) and we actually saw the baby's heart beating. That was pretty exciting.

My expected due date is December 31, although the doctor says if this turns out to be a good pregnancy, he's thinking he wants me to deliver before then. I am at wits end. Scared all the time that something may go wrong. I ache off and on (nothing really major) except all the aching scares me. I want to be excited but I am scared to get to excited right now only setting myself up for a disappointment. I pray all the time, rub my stomach and even talk to the fetus (crazy, huh). I am so scared that I feel like an anxiety attack will come one. My heart has been racing and I don't know how to calm myself down.

This is a very trying time for me/us and I am getting up in age. My doctor didn't expect me to have children based on all the miscarriages I have been having and he's monitoring my levels on a weekly basis. Please keep me in your prayers as I will do the same.


So Excited!!

I'm 33yrs old and haven't really been broody until the last 2 or 3 yrs, through this time I've become worse and worse and became desperate for a baby. My boyfriend is very supportive and after trying for just 3 mths found out I was pregnant. Hooray!

I'm now 11 weeks and have been very lucky. I haven't had any morning sickness but I have been extremely tired, I hope this passes soon as I spend more time sleeping than awake.

I have my first ultrasound next week to make sure the baby is growing normally.

Good luck to all of you mothers to be!


A baby! Am I ready?! Is he?

OMG! I have wanted a baby for MANY, MANY years and always thought that I would settle down and plan one if I was to get pregnant... well my period is about 3 weeks late and my breasts are sore, I thought it was just my period about to start, yes I have been feeling unwell - feeling sick, and yes I have been dizzy and have been off my food and YES I have been extremely tired BUT pregnant?!!

I've just turned 27 (I've been dreaming to be a young mom or at least by 30! lol!!) and have just gotten into university: Photography 3 years Honours degree starting in October.

I took a pregnancy test yesterday morning... positive.
I took a 2nd in the afternoon... positive.
I just took my third 10 minutes ago... positive!

OH MY!! I have a man in my life; I am going to tell him about this VERY soon (trying to find the words)

I cannot believe my dream is coming true! (Also my sister-in-law gave birth to her 3rd child on Sunday!!!)

I am so pleased but I am worried that after so many years of trying to get my life together I get two things I have always wanted.... university (and a career at the end) and a baby!

A baby!?

Me.... a mummy!?

Oh my!! :o).


Virgin at this

Well, what can I say? I just found out that I am four weeks pregnant.

My husband and I are so happy, but I am so worried. I am reading about all these things that can happen within the first couple weeks. I am scared. I want my baby! My husband and I thought we couldn't have babies, and now there is one, growing inside of me. Oh, please Lord, let me have my baby.

I am going to the doctor soon, she'll let me know if everything is going according to plan. Pray for us!
