    hey everyone, im currently 17 weeks and three days pregnant with my first baby, and so far things have been a bit tough, ive been in and out of hospital since i was 5 weeks with threatened miscarrige, ie lots of pain and some spoting early on, suspected ectopic pregnancy and hyperemisis (severe vomiting ie even sips of water come up) which is utterly miserable and due to that fears about the babies health as it can be a sign of malformation. and now have suspected symphisis pubis disorder, so am getting a little tierd really. on the plus side ive now been told my sickness is not due to any problem with the little ones health, i just have ridiculously high hormone levels, which is probably why i didnt have a miscarrige (yay) baby is growing well and has all the right bits so far and the sickness is lessening slightly and being controlled by medication, not ideal as it can cause problems but its keeping me eating and out of hospital so im happy! even better i felt it move for the first time on my birthday on monday so thats a nice gift! Am finally starting to feel the nice bits.


    There have been times so far when ive wondered if i can get through it all but i wouldnt give this baby up for the world. i began to search the internet for some reassurance and found some great articles and testimonies from mums who went through a tough times but who came through to have wonderful children and turned my attitude around, as it had seemed to me for a long time that my pregnancy was an illness and i was feeling empty, it was only when i started to try to connect with the baby that i really began to enjoy being pregnant, and felt like maybe just maybe i could be the mum my baby needed after all. when the pregnancy is so medicalised it can be hard to feel the spiritual aspects of what is happening, and its so important, im still looking for ways to explore it but ive begun and its helped me feel hugely positive towards the baby that for a while was just making me ill.

    sorry that turned into a bit of a rant but feels good to have it there, lol.

    Well I have 4 kids. With each one I had severe hyperemesis, my first I lost 30 lbs. She is almost 9 now. My last one ( he is 15 months) was 4 weeks early and spent 3 weeks in the hospital. Now I have 4 very healthy highly active children. Has your doctor suggested phenergen? You can take it in a pill or suppository(sp) and in extreme cases, through an IV. That is the only way the vomiting stopped for me. It makes you sleepy but after about a week, you won't need it and your stomach returns to normal.

    Oh goody (claps) bragging. Yaaayyy. My 9 year old is Deja, she is very quiet, bright, sweet, and self-concious about her teeth. My 5 year old is Nya and she is like no one I have ever met in life. Nobody that meets Nya forgets her. I expect great things from her. My 4 year old is Tre and he is all boy. He is also the most sensitive of the 4. And my baby is Jordan, he is 15 months and a handful. He was crying today while I was at my comp. I ran in the kitchen to find him standing in a chair completely covered in strawberry syrup. Apparently he tried to drink it and lost control of the bottle. He was crying because his eyelids were stuck open.lol

    Here's a few pictures of my lil man Joe Joe. He's my pride, my joy, my sunshine, and my life. I can't even imagine life without him in it. Even when I've had the worst day in the world, he always brightens it up.
    I just wanted to also let the people that posted pics of their kids know that they are so beautiful and you should be very proud to have such a beautiful family.

    Peace, Light, & love,
    Mama Dee

    These kids are all so cute. But you know I couldn't pass up a chance to post pics of my little guy. We always say that we took all the "cute" out of Guatemala when we adopted him.

    Awww! I just want to squeeze their little cheeks!! My 5 yr old is finally losing her baby chubby cheeks and I am so sad! I don't want her to grow up! The chubby cheeks and chubby butt are the absolute cutest things on my babies. It makes them that much more kissable and squeeeezable!
