  • Broke out in rash in the first trimester and had to take steroids. My placenta was lying low(but it correct itself). went into preterm labor at 30wks and had to take medication every 6hrs to stop contractions. People who worked in the ER knew by name lol. It took over 24hrs to deliver and I had 3rd degree tears(took 3 months to heal properly). Oh yeah I kept busting my stitches. But if I had to I would do it again.

  • It was pure hell. I was on complete bedrest the ENTIRE nine months after having a miscarriage in my 13th month and another in my 14th week. I had bleeding throughout the whole pregnancy with my son. That is why I was on about eternity. It felt more like 9 years instead of 9 months. I was also very sick, swollen feet, high blood pressure...Like I said, it was hell. Crazy but I did go on to have 2 more babies though. LOL.

  • I've only had one baby, but my pregnancy was pretty good, I guess. The first trimester I had no morning sickness or anything...I was just REALLY tired. The second trimester was great. I felt amazing. The third trimester was awful, lol. My son was transverse (sideways) the entire trimester, and he sat REALLY high, pushing into my ribcage. He was 8 lbs, 9 oz, and never dropped. I have a fairly small frame, but my belly was HUGE. I was at 50 cm at 37 weeks. I also gained 50 lbs (but lost 37 of it within two weeks of having him), and was retaining so much water. My feet were so swollen that it was hilarious! I had straight cankles, lol. I had a c-section at 38 1/2 weeks, which went amazing. I healed quickly with no problems and my son was healthy. Overall, I'd still say it was pretty good. Because even though I was seriously uncomfortable for few months, I also felt beautiful and had a lot of fun. :)

  • I was 15 at conception, 16 a month later. Listening to the dumb ass dad I convinced myself I wasn't really pregnant. So I ignored all the symptoms and nuances (including movement--I said it was gas) until I was 6 months and could no longer. After telling my mom and finally going to the doctor, I found myself enjoying every minute. I just was an emotional wreck because the dad had left and I knew I was disappointing my family. I wasn't in too much pain, even at the end because my last trimester was during the summer and I had already quit work so I sat around the house all day. I just remember how bored I was because it was too hot to go out during the day. Oh, and I only had 1 maternity shirt that I wore to the doctor for every visit so that sucked.

  • Horrible nausea....I was sick day and night for the first 15 weeks, then it went to horrible heart burn, and horrible back pain. Then cracked ribs bc she got her foot stuck, then nausea again at the end. After 16 hours of labor she I had to have a c section, she had turned face up while I was pushing and her head was too big to come out like that.
