Has been such a hectic week. well was in some pain yesterday and wound up in the ER worried something was wrong, and after poking and probing and groping the lady parts (sigh) they said things look fine. They think some of my pain is just because a lot of women during pregnancy get a cyst that nourishes the baby on one of their ovaries, and they said it can cause some pain so they figure that was from my discomfort. They did an ultra sound as well and as of yesterday I am 11 weeks. (scary lol) and we were able to just barely hear the heartbeat which was nice. Also got to see the baby and my was she moving up a storm! Apparently she thought because mommy was lying down and usually rock my self to sleep or my husband rocks with me (something I've done since I was a baby) she was trying to do the same. She squirmed a lot and then after rocking herself I think she got bored or sleepy...maybe both and rolled over and went to sleep. She apparently has this new phase now as I call it, where when she is tired of people looking at her, or doesn't want to be looked at she rolls over or positions herself so that her butt is facing us....I swear she is definitely her father's kid lol .It was a frustrating day for sure, because of course they called my doctor and he told them that I missed my appt the same morning which was a lie and a half. apparently after I found my appt card and brought it with me to the office, we find out that they had put in their computers that my appt was the 21st at 10 am and on the card they wrote the 22nd at 10 am....you can imagine my joy. So not only did they NOT see me that day, I now have to wait until I'm 12 weeks aka wed. before they will see me...so mad! But our wic office on the plus side had a baby shower for all breast feeding moms and it was great. They had re-freshments, talked to us a bit about the benefits of breast feeding, and had a free drawing where everyone won something. I got a pillow, and we were given goody bags, which included coupons, free nursing pads, boogie wipes, child hand sanitizer, child's story book about breastfeeding, a tooth brush, cream for the baby, and a bunch of other great stuff so that kinda made up for everything I guess. Morning sickness is slowly starting to go away. How are the rest of you ladies holding up symptom wise? Also if you have any questions feel free to ask, I may be able to help. :D

I'm due around march 30th, and this is my first. My biggest worry right now is to have anything wrong with my baby. Lucky for me, I have a friend who is due around the same time, but we are both first time mommies, so we don't have much to go by. My own mother is accross the country and unfortunately hers isn't around either, so we are kind of getting support from each other right now. Everything is insanely confusing and scary.

That is unfortunately one of the hardest parts about being pregnant. With each pregnancy being different you never know what is normal and what isn't. I've had the same trouble in the past, and I couldn't ask my mother or really my mother in law because so much has changed since then and so have the doctors idea's of what is okay and what isn't. So basically, my rule of thumb is, if something is worrying or bothering you don't be afraid to ask a doctor. That is what they are their for. Listen to your body first and foremost. If something feels like it's not right then it prob isn't. Just trust your instincts, and things will be fine. I've also found checking out books from the library helps. There is one called "Everything you need to know about pregnancy" and it was wonderful. It had every question I could think of and some I didn't. It was very informative and helpful so I suggest that as well.

I'm due March 24 for my first. I'm only seventeen, but I feel like I'm 25 just thinking about everything and all of the responsibilities. I haven't been throwing up at all, but I'm very nauseated. Not to be gross, but the vitamins are affecting the color of my #1s, and #2s. I'm also kind of worried because in my family, twins are born every 3 generations, and I happen to be the generation to have twins. If I do end up having twins, I'll have to cope as well as possible. I'm graduating in January of 2014, and I have so much support it's unbelievable. I'm very sorry for all of your losses. It makes me worry though, because I'm so young. My fiance and I are getting married after my birthday in April of next year, around the 20th because that's our anniversary, and we want our baby to be in the wedding. I know we're young, and I've heard so much criticism about us having a baby (or 2) and getting married, but we're doing what's best for our family. Anyway, I wish everyone the best of luck and have a great life with your children!(:

Honey, don't worry about it I know you will do just fine. Age has nothing to do with it. In fact the older you get the harder it is to have a healthy pregnancy and to carry a safe one. By that I mean when you start trying to concieve in your 40's and so forth. I know how you feel about the twin thing and its a bit fool proof to say the least. I was suppose to be the next in line for twins since it runs in my family the same as yours. However, with the first miscarriage I carried only one and with this one still only one peanut on board. I think its great you want to include the child. I'm only 24 and my husband and I wanted to do the same with his now 4 yr old daughter from another marriage. Dont' worry about what other people think its all about what you and him want together as a family. :) As for your pre-natal I'm not sure about it affecting #1 (Be a bit more specific, you can message me if it helps) as for #2 it will. I have that problem as mine is always a variation of green. (sorry for tmi) It's because of the iron in the suppliments will do that. If you have problems with holding it down, try the gummy bear chewable versions...my dr also told me taking flinstone vitamins like we use to when we were kids is also acceptable as long as you are taking something, just make sure you talk to him/her about it first. You will be just fine and good luck to you
