Ok, I'm a terrible MIA moderator! The typical excuses: my daughter just started K4 and dance school, I work and go to college, and her father moved in so I'm so BUSY!

Please leave me a comment if there is anything you need addressed by a moderator such as trolls, fakers, and drama and I will do my best to have it taken cared of!

Thank you!

3:56 pm - Just some questions

Hey, first of all I've posted before, but for some reason it either didn't show up, or I can't find it. Oh well.

So how many of you are going back to school? Breastfeeding? Working?

Do any of you live away from your parents?

Just some general questions.

Anyway, I'm doing good. Today I had a 3rd ultra sound, my fundus height was a few cm too small so she wanted to make sure that development was correct. Well Aydin is doing really good. He's going to be a good breast feeder, he sucks all the time. It appeared that he was sucking on his umbilical cord, or just making a *suck face* at it. My mom wanted me to get a picture of his penis, so we got the radiologist to do that for us, as well as the most adorable face pictures. Anyway, The pregnancy is good. It's 98 degrees outside!!!! Usually I'd be so excited, but I start sweating at like 65, now. Anyway... How is everyone, this community is looking innactive, start talking girls.

EDD: OCtober 22, 2006

I need some advice.

My sister found out she was pregnant about 2 weeks ago. She's 17, and too embarrased to tell any member of our family besides myself. She's been starving herself ever since she found out, and I mean STARVING. She has eaten nothing whatsoever, all she's been doing is drinking un sweet tea with splenda and water...

I'm trying so hard to convince her to keep it. She's stubborn as anything though, she won't listen :( I don't know what to do. This is her version of the abortion.

I guess what I need to know is,

how soon will this kill the baby? can it live off of fat already stored or anything like that?
If it can live long enough for me to convince her to keep it, that'd be great.

please let me know

10:14 pm - Miscarriage? [x-posted]

Wow, it's been a long time since I updated here... but I don't know of any other place to ask this.

I was pregnant in Feb. and opted for an abortion due to complications.

I am now 8 weeks pregnant again, and was diagnoised with "threatened abortion" 2 weeks ago. I was told things "looked great, heartbeat is strong and everything should turn around that the bleeding should cease."

My first prenatal was Thursday. I am still bleeding. They did blood work and apparently my hormone levels have drastically dropped. I am to go in tomorrow morning to have more blood work done. My Dr. said if they have dropped anymore and if they can not find fetal movement or a heartbeat, then she is going to go ahead and schedule me for a D & C. I was too upset so I didn't think to ask this but: If my hormone levels stay steady, and they CAN find a heartbeat, is there anyway they can save my pregnancy?

Some other things that may help... I am 21, I have a 2 year old son who had a relatively normal pregnancy...no problems other than he was exactly a week late. I am Rh-Negative. Any other questions please ask.

11:02 am - Hey everyone

Hi everyone my name is Julie. I'm 16, 26 weeks pregnant with my first son Aydin Alexandar. My boyfriend has recently turned 20, and I will soon turn 17. I don't expect a lot of grief from this community about age issues, or at least I am hoping for none. We are in a loving long term relationship and live together. Aydin was NOT planned, but he is a blessing.

I'm not religious, but I am spiritual, and when I speak of God, it is just the only way to say simply the higher being. So please don't assume that I practice christianity, paganism, or any other religion. I strongly support people who are a part of a religion because I believe that it is a good thing, as long as it is not taken over board. (being shoved onto others, doing everything in your life a certain way because of religion, or doing any harm to anyone (making fun of people, killing, or hurting people) because they are not part of the religion. This is just so that you all know where I stand.

I'm happy to be becoming a mom, and I'm here for support, friendship, advice, and to feel like I fit in with a group of people who have such a significant thing in common with me (age and parenthood).

I'm going to breastfeed. I'm doing cloth diapers. I am anti-circumcision. I believe in dicipline. And I am very pro adoption for those who feel they can't handle a child. I'm anti-abortion, because so many people think that it is okay to have MANY abortions, instead of get a free bag of condoms from planned parenthood.

I hope to have a great time in this group. Thanks.

Did anyone get pregnant while still in high school?

I got pregnant at 17 and had my son at 18. I did finish high school though. Graduated on time and everything. ( Something I am very proud of, and I hope my son will recognize.)

It just seems like everyone is 18 and 19 or even 20 in this community!

I can't be the only one?

(x-posted a little. but I'm curious!)

I just got my letter of approval for Medicaid. Yay! But a Medicaid card was not in the envelope. I tried calling the office, but apparently 20 minutes before closing they shut off their phones. The letter says I could use the billing number they gave me in the letter, and my Medicaid card, for the doctor's office.

How long before I get my card? I can't wait forever, and I desperately need to go see an OB.

And hey, totally off topic, but I've developed this huge lump on my shin, very hard, and it doesn't hurt and it isn't bruised. I've had it for a few weeks, and it's getting bigger. Any ideas? Caused by pregnancy maybe, or something else?

Hey everyone. My name is Meredith and I just joined recently. I am 18 and 32 weeks today. I'm due August 26 and I'm having a girl, we've picked the name Hannah Grace for her. I did have a question, I'm 8 months along and I seem to be more emotional than ever...I thought this was going to happen more in the first few months? I keep getting into little fights with my boyfriend and I start balling crying over the smallest things, did anyone else do this? How do you deal with it?

1:28 pm - Almost there...


Hi, My name is Crystal, I'm 17, Married, and I'm due on June 22, 2006.

My husband and I dont know if we are having a boy or a girl, it had it's legs crossed durring every ultra sound.

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to care for a baby?
My husband & I dont have a lot of experiance, and are willing to take any advice we can get!
I'm very nervous because the baby could be coming any week now,
and I'm afraid to give birth.
I've heard a lot of stories and don't know what to expect!

So if you have any advice, please share it?!

I torture myself, it  feels like, by watching baby shows on TV.  On one hand, I want to watch them to see what  I need to prepare for, info on possible complications, medications, etc.  But on the other hand, it hurts so bad to see a baby born 9 weeks premature because of placenta previa and the doctors administering medications for his lungs and he survives.  I mean, God bless the child and everything, it's a miracle, but what about my baby?  Kyla was 14 weeks premature, and doctors didn't do SHIT for her.  They never gave me meds to maybe try and stop labor, they never did anything.  They didn't even believe I was in labor until I was 7 cm dialated and my water broke.

I've  been crying all day.  I'm worried about this pregnancy.  I'm worried about my health insurance problem.  I'm worried  about having no money.  I'm worried about work, because this pregnancy is high risk.

Jesus, I'm 19 years old and I have a high risk pregnancy.

I'm terrified.

But I'm even more afraid that if I get an abortion, that the placenta abruptia followed by an abortion will hurt future pregnancies.

I don't know what to do, and I want my mom to be able to talk to me about this.  But she doesn't even know about it yet, and I'm afraid that when I tell her, she'll yell at me rather  than try and give me some kind of direction or advice.

What do I do?

My husband expects me to go back to work as soon as the baby is born. I haven't even finished school! I was 17 when we got married(he's 22 almost 23) and had turned 18 two weeks before I found out I was pregnant.

I'm so stressed that I don't know what to do. I want to finish school, but how can I when he wants me to work? He works third shift so I'll be up all night with the baby, working during the day..plus school?

I know people have done it but this pregnancy has caused our relationship to have sooo many problems and I know if I take all of that on plus our issues I'm going to snap.

have any of you had experience with living with your partners parents last month that baby is born and after baby is born? did it work? did it not?

my fiance and i are kinda screwed financially, and his parents have offered. but, his parents and i kinda have a strained relationship. not as bad as it was, but strained nevertheless....
