View Full Version : Baby on the way...
Hi, i started a thread a few weeks ago because i was deciding whether or not to have my baby. I'm 17 (18 in September) and should be having the baby around october 24. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that replied to my thread:hugs: it was the hardest decision i have ever had to make in my life, and seeing a little insight from other people was a great way to help me make up my mind. I'm so proud to have a bub on the way now:smiliedance: My doctor said i was glowing with happiness this afternoon hehe! He also said i'm perfectly healthy- blood pressure is perfect, as is my weight:smiliedance: As for the baby's daddy.... we've been together for over 2.5 years but our personal relationship has been enormously strained already and baby isnt even here yet!!!!!!! However, whether we are together or not he has promised to be there for the baby every step.
P.S... constant nausea is driving me up the wall!!!:banghead:
congratulations Samantha... Good luck with everything! Your going to be a mummy! There isnt anything more rewarding in this world!
Rest assured a baby is straining on every relationship... (its gotta be the sleep deprivation Im sure)
Good luck and I hope your morning sickness passes soon.... :fingerscrossed:
that's wonderful news! You won't regret the decision that you've made!
a quick post... just to say :hugs: to you .. and congratulations on your decision :yelclap: -
pregnancy is a HUGE learning curve... but bubhub will be here for you - to help with every worry you have :hugs:
Congrats, you sound very mature and like you will make a great Mummy.
Goodluck with everything. :)
congrats on the baby and good luck with everything:fingerscrossed:
hope u survive the morning sickness:barf: (sorry had to use it)
bet ur baby wil be beautiful and u will be a fantabulous mumma!!:kiss:
congrats on the baby news,i was 16 when i had my first girl and admittedly it was hard on our relationship but we got through it,best of luck to you all.:hugs:
Oh :hugs: - I'm so happy for you!! It really is the most rewarding thing you will do with your life in my opinion! You're in for the best ride :smiliedance:
Hope your morning sickness passes and everything runs smoothly - keep us posted!!
Try eating a dry biscuit or cracker before you get up in the morning to help settle your tummy, worked for me :)
Isn't morning sickness just the worst? I didn't throw up once...I just felt continuously sick...it was horrible. Good luck with that (I found just eating breakfast helped a little...and staying away from food courts - because they smell foul!).
I hope you and your baby continue to be in good health...and I'm sure you will.
My advice: research ALL methods of birthing...you never know if you'll need a c-section after all (I didn't think I would, so when I had to have one, I had no idea what to expect!).
As for relationship problems...I fully understand. I often felt kind of jealous of my DP because he wasn't experiencing anything that I was, and could still do whatever he wanted without having to worry about the wellbeing of another life. That strain will probably continue for quite some time...but hopefully you'll pull through it unharmed. (Oh - and as for no sleep...you MAY be lucky enough to have a bub that DOES sleep. Mine did from 3 weeks...and usually sleeps for about 8-10 hours a night now...and she's only 8 months old!).:D
You sound so happy and positive, it's fantastic!
You'll be a fantastic mummy to your lil bubby!:smiliedance:
:hugs: Congrats again!
Luv Nat xx
Congrats on your pregnancy.
My now almost hubby and I were on the verge of breaking up when I found out I was pregnant. We decided to stay together and give it a go, and I won't lie to you, it was hard! Especially when our DD was a baby, and he didn't understand that I was tired all the time etc..... Anyway, we're getting married in a few months and our relationship for the past 18months or so has been better than ever. My advice is stick with it!
So good to know that you're happy and excited about the decision you made! As much as it's hard being pregnant (I HATED IT!!!) and even though the first few weeks are a huuuuge life change - it is the best feeling cuddling your baby in your arms. Knowing that they want to be with you over any other person in the whole world.
You'll be a great mum.
Good luck with the pregnancy (and the horrible nausea... ughhh, not looking forward to my next pregnancy... unfortunately it's a pre-req to giving birth).
Congrats to you and your partner. Motherhood is so rewarding!!
I hope your morning sickness eases off soon!
My email is email@example.com, if you ever what to chat or ask anything!
Good Luck with your pregnancy!!
