will it be a boy???

I'm almost 7 weeks along and don't feel pregnant at all sometimes I wonder if I really am lol b4 I even found out I was pregnant with my second daughter (last year) my breast ached and was tender the first day I missed my period and I felt symptoms eary on, but this time around I don't feel anything, im not complaining though lol, im hoping this baby will be a boy because I already have 2 girls but if it's another girl I'll still be happy, I got pregnant the day I was supposed to get my tubes tied but my doc canceled the appt so I hope this my lucky baby boy

8 week pregnant...

This is my second child, and with my first I had few symptoms, mainly sore, tender breasts and the missed period was my clue in to tell me something was up. When I pms I get sore breasts, bloating, mood swings and the like. So when I missed my period this time around as well, I knew something was up. So I took a pregnancy test and yep, pregnant. Anyways, I started having a little nausea at the end of the week, but now it's in full swing, I usually throw up once a day, with my last pregnancy I hardly threw up at all. With this pregnancy too, I have lower back pain, bad leg cramps especially in my right leg for some reason, I've had a ultrasound done on my legs and both were clear of clots. I also get badly bloated, and stomach cramps as well as horrible constipation. I feel like I'm dying with this pregnancy. I sleep way too much...on average of 12-14 hours a day, since I work nights. It doesn't help matters that I'm obese (bmi of 34) and I've lost weight since finding out. Craz

Almost 12months pregnant

—Guest Roseline


Ive been feeling different lately. I have been peeing frequently and suddenly and getting off and on headaches. But, I just stopped my period. But having mild cramping feelings? I'm just so confused. No nausea or sickness that I have noticed. Also I have lost my appetite. Nothing sounds good at all! And no I'm not sick. I need answers. I'm having a lot of mixed signals.

—Guest laura

Not too sure.

My fiance and I decided to have sex without a condom. It's kind of a scary thought of us having a child. But if we made a mistake we'll have to just deal with it. we might be young,but we'll have to grow up. If it's meant to be, it's meant to be if it's not. We can both finish college and wait a little longer.
