Anything else you'd like to add about you or your child:
I have been separated from my son's father since he was a year old. I was 19 when pregnant, and 20 when I had him (was in this community when pregnant with him and found it again). I was recently married in June to a man who treats my son as his own and we tried for this baby only one month, so I was slightly surprised by my pregnancy! We are extremely excited and I a much more prepared this time around. I feel like I've matured 10 years since having my son. I am hoping for a VBAC, but realize more this time that anything can happen so I'm prepared (I hope!). I'm only about 7 weeks pregnant right now and am already showing a little. I bought some maternity jeans yesterday. I do not remember growing this fast with my first! However I was extremely sick the first time and so far I'm just extremely tired this time.
I am looking forward to enjoying our little family of three for the next 7 months before welcoming our new bundle :)

Free Amazon Prime for parents [Friday
September 10th, 12:55am]

Just thought i'd give fellow parents a heads up on this. Amazon is giving a free 3 month trial to all parents right now: Amazon Mom- free Amazon Prime trial

It's called Amazon Mom but it's aimed at anyone who takes care of a child. For those unfamiliar with Amazon Prime, it is a service that usually costs $79 a year that gives you free 2 day shipping and $3.99 overnight shipping. I've found it so useful at times when i'm almost out of diapers and don't think i'll have time to get to the grocery store.

My Baby Girl :) [Friday
September 3rd, 12:33am]

[ mood | calm ]

I am 18 and I am almost 7 months. This little girl that is in my stomach is my first child. At first, I must admit that I was scared. I didn't know how to tell people. In fact I didn't tell any of my friends until late June. I was only a senior in high school. My dad took it hard but he's now warming up to the idea.

The closer the due date the more excited me and my boyfriend become. We are just now starting to prepare for her. Although we still need many things. We both agree that we would wait until my baby shower until we start buying the smaller things. My aunt is throwing me the baby shower and it's suppose to be big. I can't wait to see which of my friends actually show up to support me. Either way, I'm just happy that we are one more step closer to Madison coming out.

Feeling her move in my belly is so magical. Yes, it's a pain but just knowing that I'm helping create this life is really something else. Guys have no idea the bond that we mothers are already forming with our babies even before they are out. This has really been a beautiful experience and I can't wait til I'm able to hold her in my arms. Just to be able to carry her would make me the happiest. :)

Anything else you'd like to add about you or your child:
Well I'm 17, going on 18 next month. I haven't been with the baby's dad for very long, only 6 months, but we have known each other since elementary school. This would be my second child, but about a year ago I was pregnant. Unfortunately the pregnancy was brought to an end and I miscarried at a little over 7 weeks. Even though that was really hard for me, it saved me a lot because I was in an abusive relationship and it was just not the right atmosphere to bring a child into. I'm just looking for some people who understand what I'm going threw and don't judge, because I've lost a lot of my friends because of this. So I'm glad I found this community :]

[ mood | hot ]

I use to write in here when I had my first, Ashton.. He is now almost 5 years on July 30th.
Im pregnant with my second, and although I'm not a teenager anymore (as of the 26th of May) I really would like to write in here.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone in here smoked marijuana during any of their pregnancies?

I had my first ultrasound, But they can'ttell the sex of the baby.
Im with the father of this one (He is truely wonderful) but my son's father is absent.

That's all I have for now.

This is a lot for one person, but I wouldn't change this for the world :]

Bad news [Monday
July 9th, 11:33pm]

[ mood | depressed ]

Hi, its Jessica again, I posted last time when I was 3 weeks pregnant, its been about 2 weeks since then?
Unfortunatly I miscarried and the baby is gone, I dont know what happened, I was doing so well, I had a nutritionist and everything to make sure I was eating right for the baby, and I was doing so well. But then I started bleeding, I went to the doctors and they told me the worst news I've ever heard, that I was no longer pregnant. I'm depressed and I feel like everything is my fault, like I wasnt doing enough, and that I must have been doing something wrong. I'm crying constantly, I'm not going out anymore because I'm to upset to do anything, I'm only on the computer to get support through you ladys, and thats all I'm able to do for now. The hardest thing was for me to see how upset my boyfriend was when he heard the doctor say that, in a sense I think he was a bit releaved because we are only 16 anyway, but I could still tell he was really upset because he even cried with me. It was the happiest moment ever when I told him we were pregnant and there was also some worry ofcoarse. I never wanted this to happen even though I was scared of having a baby gaining so much weight and the strech marks and everything that goes along with it, but I was extreamly happy, because I was having a baby with someone that I loved more than I loved myself. My boyfriend is the world to me and just knowing we were going to have a baby together made me the happiest person alive.  I'm just so upset this had to happen and I'm going through hell thinking I could have done more and thinking I did something wrong. Nothing could ever amount up to the pain I'm dealing with right now.
