I am in my 3rd trimester, and a single mom, I don't know what to expect so I am very cautious about everything. A couple of weeks ago I was feeling a lot of pressure, I honestly felt like I she was going to come out right then. I called my Dr. he said to lay down and do a kick count.

She had only moved about 5 times in 2 hours, so I freaked out, and went to the emergency room. They pretty much laughed at me b/c I thought I was in labor!!!! But once they hooked me up to the monitor's they showed no "action" but the Dr. could feel her head, so she has already dropped and ready.

I have about 4 weeks left and I had an u/s just yesterday she weighs only 4lbs 8 oz which is a little small considering I have gestational diabetes. But she is healthy and I can't wait to meet her!!!!!


Sick and Pregnant (Miracle Baby)

Iím 18 1/2 years old and I have epilepsy!! At the end of September 2006, I went and stayed with my grandma in Oklahoma after just getting out of an abusive relationship!!! A few days had past and I ran into one of my old friends (the guy who took my virginity at 13) on myspace, his name is Trey Foster!! Well we started talking and within 48 hours he told me that he was falling in love with me, I had, had a crush on him ever since we were in Jr high, so as a typical girl I was very excited! Well we started dating and discussing me moving up to Weatherford, OK with him, well I had never been on my own and was excited and I agreed.

Trey and I dated for a month doing the "long distance" thing and it worked out great and I was so happy and truly in love for the first time! I finally moved to Weatherford right across the street from Trey in the beginning of November 06! We dated for 3 months and everything was going good or so I thought, I finally thought I had found the "One"! Boy was I wrong!

Well Christmas went by, and we both went home for Christmas, we had the same hometown where both of our families live! December 27,2006 Trey and I had sex!! I wasnít a typical good girl during my teenage years, so I guess I figured that I've had sex before and didnít get pregnant, I guess I could get away with it again! Iím a Christian and I usually get caught with a lot of sins that I do!

Well I had a feeling I was going to suffer a great consequence for this; what exactly? I had no idea. I got sick right after New Years, and had multiple seizure attacks!! I didnít understand while all of a sudden I was doing so good, and then I just started having tons of seizures, well I was sick and hospitalized for almost 2 weeks, there was a point and time where I was two hours away from dying!!! Little did I know I was fighting not only for my life, but my unborn childís life as well!!!

Trey proposed to me in the hospital, we went and picked out rings, then right after I got put back in the hospital. I got out a day later and then a week after being released Trey broke up with me, with no explanation!! So I was not only very sick, fighting for our childís life, and heart broken, I decided to move back home with my family, and people who actually love me sick or not!! I tried getting Trey involved in the ultrasounds and just with me and the baby, but that didnít happen!

So now May 12, 2007 I am 21 weeks and 1 day pregnant, so almost 6 months and a few nights ago I got an unexpected phone call from Trey (I hadnít talked to him in almost 3 1/2 months) and he asked me about the ultrasound and then blew up on me, at least now has admitting that this is his baby, and not accusing me of sleeping around!!! The only time I contact Trey is to let him know when my next ultrasound is and how the baby is doing!!

Iím having a baby boy, his name is Jayden Isaiah, and heís truly my miracle baby, so far heís perfectly healthy, and trust me heís been through a lot, but whether or not Trey is going to step up or not, I have no idea and am kind of scared because I know what its like to not have a father around!!! I pray that Trey has a change of heart but who knows!!!! I love my unborn baby with all my heart, and am looking forward to the day I meet him face to face!!! If it werenít for God, I would be nowhere and wouldnít be blessed with a healthy baby!! I am currently almost 6 months pregnant!!

My baby, Jayden Isaiah is due September 24, 2007!!


8 months

This has been a one of a kind adventure for me. Me and my fiancť have been together for 7 years and had broken up last year then got back together after a 4 month separation and found out we were having a girl.

The separation was hard but I'm glad we worked it out after two miscarriages. I am now 8 months along and things couldn't be better besides the backaches, midnight bathroom trips and breathlessness. In the first three months I had all day sickness, it was horrible, no vomiting just constant nausea thank goodness that passed.

I had our 4-d sonogram a couple weeks ago and sheís beautiful. Her name will be Sulia Liliath and I can't wait to kiss her chubby cheeks!


36 weeks....

I have had the worst pregnancy and I cannot wait for it to be over. I have been so sick; constantly in the emergency room with every problem possible and my boyfriend of 3 years left me when I was 28 weeks pregnant!

So this has been a horrible experience, but I cannot wait for my little man to come into this world and make everything better. I think this baby is coming sooner than the doctors say, but hey, who knows right?

I hope he is healthy since I have not been very healthy these past 9 months....


Awaiting this life force

Iím currently 29 weeks pregnant with my first baby girl! Although I only have 2 months left, I am fully aware of how important it is for me to enjoy these last couple of months with my daughter to be.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every stage of this pregnancy, and I get sad when I realise that itís almost over. Although the excitement of holding my precious girl in my arms overwhelms any other emotion that I may run into.

This has been the most beautiful experience of my life, and there is no doubt that it has changed me forever. I am hoping to have more children as I feel like natural to bringing a new life into this world.

I am hoping for a completely natural birth, and I pray a safe one. I speak to my little girl and we have made a deal that it will be our very first opportunity to do something together.

So as I wait patiently for the day to come that she will be in my arms I leave you with the shining love that reaches every pregnant woman sometime or another.

Embrace this life force and appreciate every second! Life is way too short, and time flies by way too quickly!

Love Bella xxxxxx

P.S. Will keep you updated on the arrival of my precious gem!
