It's good he apologized to you. That's a start. I am happy that you are healing.
My boyfriend and I are still sick. My boyfriend is getting better and I seem to stay about the same. I'm coughing all the time and i'm all congested. My ears hurt because of all the pressure. I've lost my voice and can't speak in more than a very soft whisper. I try to talk and it just makes me cough more. I just wish this cold will go away.
I won't be going back to that particular hospital chain. Their slogan is "Not bigger, Just better." But it's not true. They spend a ton of money on their billboards and then give lousy care. No wonder why they charge so much to get your own personal records. They have to make up for the money they spend on the billboards.
What upset me the most is the fact that they couldn't tell me anything while they were doing the ultrasound. It's my baby and I have a right to be able to see it and to know that everything is ok. I had to wait for the radiologist to look at the pictures and then he told the Dr and then the Dr told me so I was getting it by a 3rd party and not first hand. And all the doctor said was that I was indeed pregnant and that I was 5 weeks, 2 days and they couldn't see a heartbeat but that is normal at 5 weeks.
I have my first ob-gyn appointment on the 26th so hopefully i'll get more answers. It seems like too far away.
I'm having a hard time thinking that i'm 6 weeks right now. It doesn't seem real. I know i've gotten a positive HPT and an ultrasound said i'm pregnant and i've had pregnancy symptoms but it still doesn't feel real to me. I'm even reading the book "What to expect when you are pregnant." And I guess this feeling is normal for many women. It will probably feel more real when I can feel the baby kick or see an actual picture of the baby.View Thread
Good for you for not replying to your ex. It must have been hard to ignore him. Sometimes you just have to cut off all contact in order to heal properly.
I went to the ER yesterday because I wan't feeling well. My boyfriend has had a bad head cold and i've been having problems breathing because of my asthma. Found out that I got bronchitis and now my boyfriend has it too. While at the hospital they decided to do an ultrasound. The ultrasound said I was 5 weeks and 2 days. I think they are off by a few days. I should be 6 weeks tomorrow. I now when I ovulated and when I had sex.
The hospital refused to let me see the ultrasound pictures and when I asked if they could see anything she told me that the hospital doesn't want her to tell me anything. I wanted copies of all the lab work and ultrasound pictures and they told me to call medical records. When I called they told me that it would cost me 2 cents for every copy and $25 for the CD. That's crazy! Mountain Star hospitals suck. At IHC all medical records are free when you ask for them and they don't make you wait.
My aunt who's a nurse doesn't like Mountain Star Hospitals because they claim to be "Better, not bigger" but they never have the resources to deal with major trauma issues. I lived with my aunt for a year and she'd come home after work complaining about the transfer patient they got from a Mountain Star Hospital because the hospital wasn't equiped to deal with the patient. I didn't get that great of care at the hospital I went to. I only went there because it was only 2 blocks away. Next time i'm going to forget distance and go to a good hospital.View Thread
That can be a little scary and i'm glad you are taking it well. It's always nice to have family around that you can count on.
It is a good thing you had a pregnancy scare so you could find out what was going on with your body.
I'm not pregnant. My period started yesterday. It hasn't been really heavy and I I think it's going to stop sometime today or tomorrow. I haven't felt much bleeding today. So it's not exactly normal bleeding. And the cramps I had last night and this morning have been horrible. Last night I had a heating pad on my abdomen and that helped, but as soon as I took it off the cramps became worse. So I kept it there all night and into the morning. I stayed in bed until 1 pm because of the cramps. When I finally got up I took some ibuprofen and that has helped.
My boyfriend isn't very happy at the fact that i'm not pregnant. When we talked yesterday he didn't even want to think about trying again. He kept saying that he has the fertility problem and it's was all his fault that i'm not pregnant. Today he's doing better and in a few days he'll be up for trying again. He really wants to be a daddy.
I should go and see an ob gyn and have a full work up. I haven't had a physical since I was 21. And at that time I wasn't sexually active. The fist time I had sex I think I was 26/27. It's weird because I know I lost my virginity at that age but it doesn't seem real. It seems like just a dream and when I think of the guy I lost my virginity to he doesn't seem real. I know it happened. Its just weird.
Last night I had a dream that I was pregnant and had a baby boy. I named him Mark after my brother that died when I was a senior in High School. The baby's name was Mark Anthony. In the dream I didn't want to give it the same middle name as my brother and Anthony seems to fit. He was an adorable little boy. I wish the dream could come true.
Even though we aren't pregnant together keep me updated.View Thread
I'm not sure if I am pregnant. I think my period is starting. I'm still spotting but this morning there was a little more blood. I don't know what to think.
If I am pregnant I would guess about 2-10 weeks. If I go off how long my boobs have been sore i'd say 10 weeks. If the bleeding i'm having is just implantation bleeding then 2 weeks. I'm hoping it's just implantation bleeding.
I understand thinking it's all in your head. I'm thinking the same thing. I don't understand why my boobs would hurt this bad for so long if I wasn't pregnant. I hope it's not all in my head.
I did tell my boyfriend that I think my period might be starting. He's disappointed and says that he'll be mad at God if i'm not pregnant. He thinks God is preventing us from having kids. I don't think God is preventing us from having kids. I just think that if i'm not pregnant now then it's not the right time and i'll get pregnant when it is right. I think I put a little more trust in God than my boyfriend does.
Don't feel silly if you go to the Dr and find out you're not pregnant. It's better to be safe than sorry.View Thread
Good ol' TOM hasn't shown up yet. So far it's just a little spotting. I'm hoping it stays that way. I'm starting to get used to the idea of being pregnant and being a mom. I'll be disappointed if my period does start.
I have several sis-in-laws that i've been around while they were pregnant so I kind of know what to expect, I think. But it's not the same as going through everything with someone else who is going through the same thing.
I haven't had any dreams of being pregnant but I did have a dream last night about getting married. The only reason we aren't married is because of money. It costs money to get married. I don't want a big wedding and neither does my boyfriend. I'd be happy just to elope to Las Vegas but he thinks that's too boring.
I've dreamed of being pregnant many times in the past but i'd given the baby up for adoption. But that was when I was single and before I met my boyfriend. I would love to have a dream where I am pregnant. In the past all my pregnant dreams were of a little girl. My boyfriend insists that our first child is going to be a boy, but i'm not sure on that.View Thread
I don't know if this is bad news or not. I saw a little blood when I went to wipe after using the bathroom. I don't know what to think. My boyfriend and I did have sex last night and we used some KY warming jelly and I think i'm allergic to it because it really burned and is still burning, so the bleeding could be from that. I'll have a to wait a few days to see if my actual period does show up. If it does then I hope it's normal so I don't have any confusion.
I'm afraid to tell my boyfriend because I don't want to crush his heart. He is really hoping that I am pregnant. I guess if i'm not then we'll go out and buy some OPK's and keep on trying.
If you aren't pregnant I would definately see if the guy you met online is still interested. It's always nice to have someone who appreciates you.
It would be cool if we were both pregnant. Then i'd have someone to share pregnant stories with and someone who is going through the same thing as me.View Thread
Mom's just have a way of knowing when their kids are doing something they don't approve of. I've been lying to my mom telling her that i'm not having sex and that we sleep in different beds, but i'm sure she knows different now. I've been living with my boyfriend full time since August. I spent most of my time at my boyfriend's so I figured i'd just move in. It was better to just stay than to go home and have my mom lecture me about showing up after midnight. "Nothing good happens after midnight." I'm 33 I don't need a curfew. I only moved in with my mom because it was easier to see my boyfriend. A 10 min drive is easier than a 2 hr drive. And I wasn't planing on living with her for very long.
I also told my self that I would wait to have sex until I was married but things don't always happen the way we want. I had always been a "good girl" and never did anything wrong. Then one day I decided that I was tired of being "the good girl" and just gave in. Of course with that guy all he wanted was sex. After I gave into him he wouldn't call me for a while then all of a sudden i'd get a call and we'd date for a little while then I wouldn't get a call from him for a while. I got tired of it so I told him to never contact me again.
You are probably better off without your ex at least for a while, while he tries to fiqure out what he wants to do with his life. Sometimes having a child makes you realize that you need to grow up and show some responsibility. It doesn't happen for everyone but maybe it will be that way for your ex. Either that or scare him and he runs. Hopefully it's not that.
If you aren't pregnant then I would break off all contact with your ex. I know it's not the easy thing to do, but sometimes it's better and will help you to heal faster. And then you can look for a guy who will love and repect you for the person you are.
I needed a change in my life so I moved further away and started all over again. It was the best thing I did for myself. It gave me time think and to reflect on my life. And then I met my boyfriend. I met him online on a religious dating site and he contacted me. I wasn't looking for love it just fell into my lap. I hadn't used the dating site for a couple of years because I was tired of all the jerks on the site contacting me. Then one day a year ago I got an email and my life changed.
Sometimes we just need to let go of everything and start over before something wonderful happens.View Thread
