  • aaah these are all normal pregnancy symptoms. the cramping and all will go away...I proooooomise! your body is changing and the cramps are your uterus and all preparing for the growing fetus (lots of muscles are contracting as well). with that comes nausea and all. eat many small meals throughout the day. not just three big meals. drink lots of water. for nausea you can eat crackers, or ginger candy. it might have hit your mom hard, since you are her baby afterall. she'll get over it. have you tried to at least ask her some questions, or let her know how you feel about her not emotionally supporting her like you wish she would? give her time!

  • my mom wasnt very nice when I first told her the news. but i'm 28, college graduate. she still treated it like I was a very young promiscuous school dropout like the girls on the maury show (i'm not bashing you of course! thats just how my mom viewed it!). she told me it was a mistake and it wasnt too late to get an abortion. she said my SO didnt make enough money, maybe enough for diapers, and getting govt assistance would make my baby a welfare baby and thats a bad thing. but she realized how happy I was and that she was gonna be a grandma and asked for forgiveness. your mom loves you and will grow to love this baby. once she sees the baby bump get bigger, hopefully she'll rejoice and support you better! and if your cramps are unbearable or you just dont feel right, ask the dr!
