I can't wait!

I am 30 weeks pregnant with my first baby and let me tell you.... I can't wait for these last 10 weeks or so to be over!!!!!!!!!

I had a great pregnancy early on--no sickness, felt great. But now in the past month or so I'm tired, moody, sore, and have to pee all the time. Nine months is just so long to wait.

I just can't wait until my baby girl is here!!! Of course I don't want her to come too soon.... but I can't wait until the time comes! :)


Getting there!

Hi...Iím 33 weeks into my pregnancy with our first baby and feeling great...although a bit tired. I quit working in December and Iím taking it easy...doing things I haven't had the time to do when working.

My husband and I decided that our little one deserves a full time mom for a couple of years so Iím happily looking forward to taking care of her (it's a she by the way!) and spending all my time with her. My pregnancy has been great, no nausea or anything of the sort...although in my 5th month I developed carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a killer especially during the night when you get great pains in your hands and fingers.

Iím managing the pain with wrist splints which Iím finding very useful... otherwise, apart from getting bigger by the second (and the discomfort that accompanies it), I feel on top of the world...and I can't wait for our little princess to arrive in February!!!!


3rd Baby... WORST pregnancy EVER!

Iím currently 32 weeks pregnant... with my third baby... my other 2 are boys and they were like fairy tale pregnancies, LET ME TELL YOU! This time around I was lucky that I didnít throw up, which I didnít do in any of my pregnancies. I have heartburn WAYYY worse than I did with the other two. I have indigestion, which I have NEVER experienced... I can't sleep, my legs ache, my back aches, my stomach aches... and I wish on a daily basis that this could be over and Iíve never wished for that before either even though I know I still have 8 weeks to go...

The thought of holding my new baby doesnít even get me past these moments; Iím just the miserable one... I just wanted to share that with some other pregnant ladies! :D I just finished work 2 weeks ago... and it came at a good time because I donít think I could handle the standing on my legs for 8 hrs a day... and I was starting to swell up a little bit. Anyways... here's to 8 more weeks to go that can't go any faster and possibly a baby girl :D

Made in Germany

I am 29 weeks pregnant with my first child. I am due on my 25th birthday, on March 25. (What a birthday present!)

This summer I went to Europe with my boyfriend of four years for a month of globe trotting before possibly going to medical school. (I was on a few wait lists). Three days before returning to the states, and the day before I was supposed to start my period, I found out that I had been accepted to medical school in California. I was overwhelmed with the thought of going home and packing up my life in Denver for an immediate move, and figured my period was late because of the stress (which had happened many times before).

The day I got home, I had to get a physical for medical school admissions, and was shocked to hear that "my pregnancy hormones were normal". "But I am on birth control!" I wailed.

Birth control or no, med school bound or not, this little boy knew that he was coming whether we thought we were ready or not. Although it was scary to imagine starting med school and being pregnant, I look back after my first semester, and realize that this was the best thing that could have happened. Medical School would be daunting alone, but looking forward to my little love and feeling him grow and seeing my family all come together has made medical school more manageable and fun.

By the same token, pregnancy is tiring, daunting, and busy enough without med school, but I can't dwell on how hard it is because I have to do well in school! I loved learning about how he was developing in embryology, and how amazing it really is that he is perfect after learning genetics and all that can go wrong. All in all, each experience has minimized yet amplified the other experience, and shown me that if I can do this, I can do anything, and so can you!

Never underestimate the power of belief and love for someone-even a surprise-that you have never met before. Children work miracles and I can't wait to meet mine!


First baby

This is the first baby my husband and I are to have and I am 27 weeks along, and we are so excited. I am 30 yrs old and have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far. I have had ups and downs like everyone. I had three incidents that I had bled/spotted and was really tired the first trimester.

I also have experienced many of the of the other symptoms like, being thirsty, changing skin conditions, increased urination, itchy belly, sore round muscle, back pain... It's funny how you get use to a symptom and then boom it changes and you have to get use to something different.

The most wonderful part is feeling the baby move inside.
