Hi all,

I'm 38 weeks pregnant, with my second child, baby is due on 23 March and my daughter turns 3 on 25 March smiley. I'm hoping for a natural birth this time, i.e. no meds. I had an epidural with my first child, however talk is cheap and i have a low pain threshold, the pain was toooooooo much at 5cms dilated so who knows! Had a check up yesterday and advised that i have high blood pressure, so have to go back for further assessment on Monday.

Nice thread btw.

We have been ttc for two months now and im anxious for any sign of pregnancy.its almost making me too anxious. I would really appreciate people who can remember what their first few weeks of pregnancy felt like. I was kinda suprised dat our first try didnt result in anything even when i knew i was ovulating.wat if sthg is wrong?i use prenatal vitamins, is there sthg else i shld be doing (sex everyday is on my to-do list)lol.

Hi, ladies, I like this thread cause I think pregnancy is one of the most beautiful periods of woman's life, when I was pregnant I enjoyed it, fortunately I had no symptoms except burning heart, so I was a happy one, may be someone is looking for a source were she may find the answers to many questions, so I can say that during my preg I used this calendar https://saymommy.com/weeks/ to know what is going one, I'll be glad if it'll help, good luck! wink

@tewal27 welcome to our thread to answer your questions the early stages of pregnancy feel like, regular monthly menstration, like period cramps, sore bosom etc. The best time so have sex is during your ovulation period, that is your most fertile period in the month and the likelihood of conceiving is best. You have not been trying long enough to conclude something is wrong usually infertility is diagnosed after 1 year of ttc and a pregnancy has not been achieved. But if you are in doubt you should go see your doctor. Below i have attached a link to the TTC thread the ladies on their are great we all share advice and support each other in the ttc journey.

Pls i need advise on how to go abt reducing this pain.my baby is 14mnths and i just realize am pregnant so i hav to stop breastfeeding her. The pain i feel presenting in my bosom is so much dat i cant sleep. Pls i need urgent reply dat will help me
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by agiboma(f): 8:32pm On Mar 12, 2012
@demmykay welcome and congratulations on your pregnancy. Now i am not a lactation consultant but, did you just stop breastfeeding your baby abruptly. Like you did not wean her at all you just stopped all of a sudden? Now the pain you are feeling could be engourgement and the bosom being incredibly full, or it could be an infection know as Mastitis, if thats the case it would need to be treated with medications (antibiotics). Now i would suggest you try the following:

1.) You can express the milk @ least 2 times daily for a few days, then gradually go down to 1 a day, and they stop altogether over a week period.
2.) You should also go to your doctor if the pain does not go away after a few days to rule out infection.

Why did you stop breastfeeding your LO, its perfectly safe to do so in pregnancy and wont harm the baby in your womb.

Thank you very much for your kind words, It really means a lot to me, hopefully it will help someone, somewhere at sometime, thats the aim smiley
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by demmykay: 10:12pm On Mar 13, 2012
@ agiboma tanks a mill for ur response/advise. I had to stop breastfeeding my LO considering the tenderness of d bosom in early pregnancy tryin to avoid pains (nt sure). I also thought dat weanin implies stopin d child frm breastfeedin nt mindin it being sudden or not. (put me thru as i want to learn more). The pains in d bosom has also reduced but d bosom is stil lookin very big nd kind of strong. Tanks once again, waitin to hear frm u
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by agiboma(f): 11:28pm On Mar 13, 2012
@demmy weaning is a process, you can choose to gradually wean your baby which is the prefereed method by many moms, where they decrease the amount of breastmilk they give to their babies and start to introduce more solid foods at the same time. The other option is to stop breastfeeding all together. I certainly understand why you stopped as the pain in the bosom in early pregnancy is difficult to bear. I had a friend that stopped breastfeeding her 18 month old once she got pregnant, she said it hurt and she did not enjoy it anymore, and to an extent the breastfeeding made her sick. Now how about the pain has it gone away? It sounds like your bosom are engourged and you need to get them soft again here are some tips:

1.) try taking a hot shower and let the water run on your bosom for a few minutes
2.) you can boil water and use a cloth to place on the bosom the warm moisture may make them soft again
3.) Cabbage leaf can also help to ge the bosom soft again

I hope your still giving the little one formula milk, or regular powder milk. I have my son who is 19 months on SMA Toddler formula and when i run out and cant get to the supermarket i give him peak 123, I actually like the peak 123 better because it has additional iron, which toddlers need up to the age of 2 for proper growth and development.

My second pregnancy was stress free until 30wks when i went for my scan unt the sonograhr told me to wait that she needs to get d doctor to talk to me.i was so scared because i knew something wasnt right,she came and told me that my son had passed away.i thought i was going to die,i kept asking questions how,when.she doesnt know but she told me maybe that day.I was placed on pitocin to induce my labor,i had a still birth,could not afford to see him but my family helped me take his pictures,dressed him,i had his certificate,his footh print,he was in my room for 5hrs.Finally we baptized him,working in L&D has helped me overcome my fear i still cry n ask God why it happened to me.
This month is my son's anniverary.I pray that our children will live and grow to declare the works of the lord(amen)

@dammy so sorry for your loss, its not easy as you well know. To work in L&D after such an experience that is truely braze. You will certainly have more children as they are already around you and g-d will bless you with as many children as you so desire. I often ask myself why such things happen to good people. I can tell you the pain gets easier to deal with as time goes on.
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by demmykay: 8:46am On Mar 14, 2012
@dammylove i feel ur pain pls try to put it behind surely God will giv u a replacement and dat wil be a lasting joy.@agiboma tanks d pains are almost gone. D right bosom seems ok but d left is still a kind of strong/tender but sure will get better tryin those tips of urs. The LO takes peak 123. But funny enough refuse taking tea these days which makes me wake up at midnight to give her goldenmorn or pap. If only she takes d tea it will hv been much easier for me ie need nt sit up,prepare nd start feeding her. Hop she wil later tak d tea again
Re: Pregnancy Are You Pregnant Or Going Through A High Risk Pregnancy,,lets Talk by agiboma(f): 11:59am On Mar 14, 2012
@demmy probably the teeth is disturbing her, thats why she is waking up dont worry my son still wakes up in the night, i am hoping he gets into a sleeping rountine in the near future.

@ demmy pregnancy is calculated from the date your last period has finished and the new cycle begins, here is a link to a calculator that may help you, it will tell you how far along you are and also your due date:

Hi Ladies (and gents),

Quick update on my journey in pregnancy. Im 33 weeks and 5 days. today was just rough! I went for driving lessons today and having sat in the car driving for 2 hours, by the time i got out of the vehicle, my bump was TIGHT! i started feeling nauseous and frustrated with my existence. I got home, went straight into bed for 1 hour, woke up still not joy. I threw up and started having a headache still no luck. Its been 7 hours since ive been feeling like poo. At a point, i was crying from been so uncomfortable...i felt like the baby should just come now let me rest.

right now, i'm feeling a bit of relief from the tightness but i cant eat. i hope this is the last i'd have of this horrible feeling.

enough of my ranting and feeling sorry for my self..lol. Hope all preggers ladies are good? Stay blessed.
