excited teen mommy I live in North CarolinaSeptember 23
thank you verey much for your input i will try that and thank you about the smoking thing i want to quit so much but i have been worried that if i do quit i will be more stressed than i am now and it will hurt the baby
this pregancy is a strange thing, I think I'm getting forgetful and keep making silly mistakes.I was wondering had you repliedto my post and when I checked I had posted it on my own page... I'm going to blame it on pregnancy anyway, that sounds better than me just being plain stupid... here is the original message- -that sounds like me last week, kids were off school for two weeks and at home with all their friends. Every time I turned around there was someone looking for food, the house permanently smelled like pizza from the teenagers and I heard loud music or tv's constantly. It's lambing season here and they love to go checking the sheep and finding baby lambs up to ten times a day and the smell of sheep seemed to be everywhere, it's a disgusting smell..I feel like vomiting even thinking about it! Not too bad now because James is working away for 5 days, the younger kids are in school, Jamie goes to school in Dublin (we live ona small offshore island with no highschool) and won't be home til friday either and I'm not working so I've great peace in the house at the moment. My friends Michelle and Noel had their first baby 3 weeks ago, he's a bit fussy or colicky and they are getting no sleep at all.. an hour here and there is the most. She got so tired and upset that she was crying so I've spent a few nights and early mornings giving them a break and it's reminded me of the realitys of small babys. The baby cries on and off all night and at four o clock this morning I was rocking him and thinking -what have I done, letting myself in for all this all over again!! Minor panic attack ensued but I'm much calmer now, trying to convince myself that we''ll be lucky and have a very quiet baby...
Eleven weeks now... only one more until I can feel "safe"! To be honest I've began to feel more secure in the last few days anyway, I think in the early days I did a lot more reading on the internet than I needed - some of the timewhat I read was more frightening than enlightening... In our house Jamie (17) doesn't really mind whether it's girl or boy so long as he doesn't have to babysit without payment. In reality he's very excited but it's "uncool" to show it apparently... I have the computers set up so I can see the history so I know he's been looking at sites showing how big the baby is now..etc, and yes that probably sounds weird that I check the history but I just like to be careful, we had an experience with Sean(7) who typed in his hotmail address but spelt it hotmale and the results ensued endless questions (him) and near heart failure (me). Meg who is nine in real age but think she is nineteen really, wants a boy. She told me that she prefers being the princess of the family which is a very good indication of her personality. Either way she is delighted to have a new baby on the way. Sean(7) doesn't mind what he gets, all he wants is to be a big brother and not be the smallest in the family. Myself and James don't mind so long as it's healthy. we've been together for five years and this is his first baby so he's terrified and excited all at the same time. Do you find that you are showing yet?At only eleven weeks I definitely look pregnant. Maybe it's because all the muscles are already stretched from the other pregnancies but there'snot much chanceof hiding this for much longer...
congrats on the heartbeat... it's a great relief when you hear it. I have had two scans already because I had an ectopic pregnancy previously so I've seen the baby's heartbeat. Like you I am really worried about this baby, morning sickness was welcome as it was a definite sign that the baby was still there. I only told my younger two children about the baby two days ago, both sets of grandparents knew and I wanted to tell the kidsmyself before somone let it slipbut I feel very nervous in case something goes wrong and I have to give them bad news then. All the children are really excited and they're already choosing names... (I've heard some strange and unusual choices in the last two days, maybe I should concentrate on worrying about that!) I nap during the day too, to be honest I have spent more time on the couch lately than I have on my feet. I am so looking forward to the days when I get my energy back but in the meantime I'm looking on the tiredness as another pregnancy symptom that confirms the baby is ok in there...only a handful more days and then this will pass (I hope), I feel if I can get to the twelve weeks mark then I can feel more secure about the baby and maybe relax a little. it's great to know I'm not the only one that's nervous..
Eldest son seventeen! I'm due on 18th October and know just how you feel. My "baby" boy is seven and my eldest son is seventeen. I've a nine year old daughter in between. I'm looking forward to a new baby but it is a shock to the system. The kids are very excited - especially my daughter. Do you find you're more tired than previous pregnancys? ...I am exhaustedby three o clock in the afternooneveryday and I'm hoping it will pass soon. Presumably it's because at 35, I'm older this time around...
Starting all over I have 3 kids and live in PennsylvaniaMarch 18
Isn't that quite a coincidence. I do feel entirely like I am Starting all over and its all new again. Although you never forget and your body never forgets. The kids are excited let me say sooo excited. This whole thing caught me and my hubby off guard. For some reason I feel scared for the baby I just am worrying too much I think. I did have an ulta-sound and saw the heart beating. As my mid-wife put it they need to see if this pregnancy is viable. That was when i was 7wks. But I go back to the Dr. next week. Oh by the way my name is Genesis and it is so nice to see someone in the same boat as me.
