7 MONTHS!!!!!!!!

Hi I'm Breana. I'm 15 and I'm 7 months pregnant. It's been hard 4 me I've never been thru this before. I'm having a girl. I haven't had any morning sickness thank god!!!

My boyfriend who is now my fiancé is excited about the pregnancy 2. I'm looking forward to meeting my daughter.

I go 2 a teen pregnancy school called Florence Crittenden. It's great 4 expectant teens and there's a daycare center 2.

Well thanks 4 listening 2 my story. IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



My pregnancy was not an easy task for me to take on all over again. I have a six year old son, so I think it's been quiet some time. This pregnancy has been tough on me.

I had almost miscarried the baby around 3 months. I cried so much when I thought she was not going to make it, well in the end it's been well worth knowing I'm bringing a little girl into the world!

These last 2 months that are left are the most exciting of all, from preparing her room to getting her clothes for her when she leaves the hospital. But the heart burn is a pain in the rear.

I can't wait to say hello and kiss my new lil bundle of joy!!!


Let him out!!!

Hi! My name is Christina and I have 24 days until I give birth to my son my scheduled c-section. I CAN'T WAIT. I am 34 and have 11-year-old twins.

There's a big difference between being pregnant at 23 and 34. I am been very lucky to never have had morning sickness, but the fatigue and discomfort is enough to put me in an insane asylum. I don't ever remember feeling this bad with my twins believe it or not.

I went through my pregnancy alone with my twins, but now I'm married and thank god for his love, support and attentiveness. This is the last pregnancy for me.

I just want to see my son.


Being Pregnant

Ever since I found I was pregnant, I could not wait to decorate the baby's room. I couldn't wait to find out what the baby is. I found our on December 28th that the baby is a GIRL!!! I was so excited to go through baby names with my fiancée. After about 2 months of deciding on what her name was going to be, we finally picked out Gabriella!

Now that I am in my 3rd trimester, the anxiety of meeting her and going through labor is really starting to come. Especially because I am a first time mother, I am not too sure what to expect, so the anticipation of all the stories I have heard about labor is kind of starting to scare me.

Okay, so you remember being a little kid sitting in front of the Christmas tree and seeing all those presents underneath it, but your not allowed to open them until Christmas morning, yeah well that’s how I feel with meeting Gabriella! I am filled with all the questions, who does she look like, who is she going to be like? I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

On the other hand! I love feeling her kick now, and feeling her move around. I love the fact that my fiancée giggles like a little girl when Gabriella kicks his hands!

I can defiantly say that it is wonderful being pregnant!!!!


Comparison of 1st & second pregnancies.

Hi. My name is Amy. I am 21 years old. I got pregnant with my 1st child when I was 16. On October 23,2002 I gave birth to a baby girl that was named Haylie Nicole. She is 4 now and I am 38 1/2 weeks pregnant with my 2nd baby. It is believed to be a boy & we are naming him Brandon Lee.

Haylie was an easy pregnancy. I had no problems, no complaints (other than the fact that I was 16 & pregnant). I didn't even get very big with her. My water broke the day I turned 38 weeks in the doctor's office on the examining table. I was in labor for 7 hours but only about an hour was hard labor. I didn't even tear or need an episiotomy. I was lucky. This baby, however, has given me a rough go.

I was nauseous for 3 months straight to begin with and have constantly had sinus problems. I have gotten much bigger with this one. I am measuring 40 weeks already & gained about 50 lbs or more. My legs, feet, hands, & face have stayed constantly swelled for the last 3 weeks or so & until about 2 weeks ago I had heartburn so bad I thought I'd swallowed a torch. My tail bone and back hurt so bad I can't hardly stand to move, my hips ache to no end & my skin feels like an oil rig exploded on it.

I've had problems with my heart pounding and staying tired all the time. I didn't find out for sure I was pregnant until I was 25 weeks but the crappy way I'd felt for the last 4-5 months should've been a dead giveaway. I didn't even pay attention to how many weeks I was when I was pregnant with Haylie but with this one I'm counting down the days. My due date is 4-09-07. I'd like to go before then but I went to the doctor on Wednesday (This is Friday) and I was only 1cm dilated if that.

I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions like crazy & menstrual like cramps on and off for the last month but nothing has really progressed. I feel like I'm going to be pregnant forever. I know I can't be but it feels like it. I’ll be the happiest person alive when this baby finally decides to come out. Knowing my luck with this pregnancy so far I'll go 2 weeks passed my due date, have to be induced and be in labor for 15-20 hours or more. Thank God for epidurals!

I am also having my tubes tied. I don't want to go through this again. I'm sick & tired of being sick & tired! For some women this trimester is the best one for them but it has been the worst for me. I'm completely miserable. I wish this one had been as easy as my first one. It was a breeze. I just can't wait until it's over.

We are putting the baby up for adoption but the people that are adopting are people I've known all my life so we'll be able to be apart of his life. I’m grateful for that. My daughter lives with her father's parents and they won't let me see her. I haven't seen or talked to Haylie for over 5 months. I've tried but her grandmother is a witch with a capitol B and avoids me. My mother and aunt act like the baby isn't even related to them just because I'm not raising him. My mom doesn't even want to see him. That hurts my feelings but it's her loss.

Whether she likes it or not he is her grandson and that doesn't change just because I'm not the one raising him. But the baby's father's family is supportive and I'm thankful for that. In case you haven't figured it out, Haylie and this baby have different Dads. But I wish everyone good luck and I hope I'll have good news soon!
