can't wait till the first trimester is over!!

I am 25 and officially 8 wks pregnant.

My sister just had a miscarriage, so I am so stressed about getting the first twelve weeks over with.

At work tonight there was a little brown spotting in my underwear. Iím sure Iím fine, but this pregnancy stuff is so stressful!!


Thank You!!

Just took a preg. test today and it was positive! I am 34 yrs.

My husband and I have been trying for 1.5 years. This cycle we went to a fertility specialist and I took 50 mg. of clomid. I know God is the worker of miracles, but I think the clomid helped also.

I am so thrilled and yet scared also. I have many friends who have miscarried, so I know it's a possibility. I am so eager to educate myself about health during pregnancy.

This is definitely uncharted territory!


What have I done?

When I found out I was pregnant, I felt like I had a huge piece of gossip that just could not be kept quite. So, I told my best friend of 35 years. She's known me the longest. Then, I had to tell another friend, then another.

Well... if truth be told, I opened my mouth to just about anyone who would listen. Then... I ran out of people to tell, and then I had to actually think about what I was saying..."I'm pregnant." OMG! I'm pregnant! What have I done?

All of a sudden a huge sense of guilt, anxiety, and nervousness has set in. Yes, I am using present tense because I am only 7 weeks along, and I feel utterly alone. Although I'm not... my husband is so supportive. I'm just not into the whole pregnant thing yet.

So many things go thru my head about the health of the baby, about if I can even do this...


The truth will set you free!!

I posted my story about being pregnant at 37 with 4 children already. This makes number 5! Then I read several other stories. I wanted to give advice to all the young beautiful girls out there who found out about their pregnancy but arenít married or don't know what to do.

My advice is to face it no matter what. My first pregnancy was the same. I was only 19 and on my own. I come from a very religious background. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be exact. I had big expectations from my parents. Who doesnít right?

Well, I knew they would be disappointed, but I knew I had to tell them. I called my parents and just said, "Guess what? I am having a baby in July." Just blurt it out. Thatís the only way. My dad was so upset he wouldn't talk to me for a week. My mom was very nice and loving. It was a very difficult thing I had done to my family and myself.

I did marry my boyfriend. We didn't even know each other very well. It was like an arranged marriage. We have had a rough hard time getting to know each other and turning our lust for each other into love. 15+ years have gone by with many struggles to make it work. I would suggest looking into adoption. I think I would have saved myself years of consequences of pain by making some other couple happy.

A great sacrifice, no matter what your choice will be concerning the baby. Your parents will love you. It may take some time, but they do want to help you if youíre in trouble. They will be disappointed, but they can help you make the right decisions.

Repentance is so refreshing!! The Lord loves everyone. He knows. Pray and renew the spiritual daughter of God you are. He always loves when no one else does. Turn to him too. He will give you the strength you need to tell your family and face your future. Youíre not alone.



I have had four children. My oldest is in drivers Ed now and my youngest is 7 years old. I thought I was done having children.

I was shocked to find out that I was pregnant once again after feeling the usual side effects of nausea, bloated sick feelings. Going to the bathroom all the time! I usually feel o.k. when I wake up, but in the late afternoon I feel sick and nauseous.

I try to eat a piece of toast or drink some apple juice. I hate to lie down, but I don't know what else to do. It usually stays with me for the rest of the night till I go to sleep. I was way sicker my first child, so I am glad that I havenít actually thrown up.

I never did lose weight with my other children. I am scared to be pregnant for the fifth time starting out overweight and being older. I hope I can do this!
