Baby Names

I know that I still have five weeks to determine the sex, but I am real excited. Some people say that names mean a lot to the person while others say that the name is not that important. To me I just want a name that is going to be different that a lot of people don’t have.

I have thought about what to name the kid a lot, although I have not chosen the name for sure yet. Every time I come up with some name, someone has to tell me something bad about it or that they don’t like it. The names I like the most are Deanna Mae Byers, Kylin Sage Byers, or even Colton Ross Byers. What would you name your kid?

The one thing that I do know is that I am keeping my last name. Then if I don’t talk to the dad it will be better to have the same last name as my child. It would also be nice if I could make the initials mean or say something, however mine don’t mean anything. I may just come up with the name when the child comes out so I can see what she/he looks like.

Week 12

Right now I am a little passed 12 weeks. Here is not my kid but a link to show a picture of how far along your baby is. The baby is 2 to 3 inches and has all the organs in place. He/she should now start to kick or stretch. So here soon I should feel my kid inside me. That is going to be a wired feeling but I am excited.

Around twenty weeks I will get to go to my doctors. Then I will find out if it is a boy or a girl. You probably can find out earlier but usually the baby is not in the right possession to tell.

This is the first kid I that I am having. And I never have been pregnant either. I have not been around a lot of people pregnant besides my sister. She already has had two kids. So I am kind of new to all the things that have come and are still to come. But I guess that anyone pregnant for the first time would be new to everything also.

Mourning Sickness

Uhh my, I never thought that I would get so sick during pregnancy. It was almost like everyday for a while. Just make sure that if you ever are thinking about being pregnant you are ready to get all the bad effects with it. I mean it is not all that bad just the occasion spitting up or a small amount of throw up. You do get very tired a lot. I had to get medicine so it will help me with the nausea. You can’t even take a lot of the over the counter medications to help you. There are only certain kinds you can take.

After I got the medicine and moved out my apartment I am doing much better. There were a lot of things that could have caused me to get sick from my apartment like mold. Then there are the days that I feel wonderful and don’t even feel like I am pregnant at all. I wish that I could feel like that all the time. It doesn’t work like that though but you may consider and think about being a mother as a reward it’s self. I also wake up a lot earlier in the mourning’s for some reason. I guess that will help when I actually have the kid, because he/she is going to keep me up all night.

When you are pregnant you can’t really go out much. You can but you have to be real careful. Everything that you do will go straight to your kid. They won’t even give you a tattoo while you’re pregnant. Some people also don’t look at it as your pregnant and just bump right into you.
Now everyone does not experience pregnancy the same way. Some people may not get as sick while some people may get sicker. So it all just depends on your body and how it reacts to the pregnancy. But every time you do feel like it won’t be over and the time goes by so slow then always remember the reward of being a mother. That you actually have a beautiful kid that you are about to tech your own ways.

18 and Pregnant

I am an 18 year old student at Ohio State University in Newark. I am majoring in Social work here at the campus. I live in a small town and everyone knows everyone. Now I am a simple person and do not get into that many activities. I am very shy but try to overcome the fear of talking out in public.

Also I am a little over 11 weeks pregnant, and I just found out about 8 weeks ago. During the next couple months I am going to take you through the week to week process of how my life changes. Mainly I am going to tell you what goes on during my pregnancy, but also all the tasks that I am going to accomplish and have to accomplish before the baby comes. I might also describe different viewpoints and stands of people during the pregnancy. I will describe the different options that I could have taken.

This was not a planned pregnancy, but yet one that I almost wish I would have waited. Now I still have an option of what can be done but I already made my decision. I am going to have the baby and raise it as my own. I may have help from parents and friends, but I will be on my own and take care of it myself. Now I am not only going to college but I have to start finding a job, an apartment, and get all new items for the baby. One of the main goals that I want to keep during the pregnancy is that I stay a student at school. I don’t want the baby to postpone anything that I have already started. Yet I would rather make this a lesson that I have to learn. And stay more focused and get more things done.
