Hi I think I might be pregnet but everytime i go for a test its inconclusive.
I lost two kids already and im scared to loose this one too ... what am i supose to do?
I don't know what to say about the inconclusive test but I do know that you are very stressed and that puts the fetus in a very vulnerable state. When you are depressed the chemicals in your body change and those chemicals are not good for the baby. Being happy is the way to go. I don't know why you are stressed but if you can fix the problem, it will put you and maybe your baby in a better place!!! I hope this was helpful!

Hello. Congrats on your soon to be bundle of joy.  I am currently pregnant with our third baby.  She will arrive in Feb.  As far as how to help with natural induction... I am surprised you haven't heard... but having sex.  The chemical in semen is the same chemical in the petocin that they use to induce.  Don't worry though, the receptors on the cervix are only open when the body is ready to deliver, so having sex won't induce pre-labor. 

The other natural things that help are lots of walking, and believe it or not, driving on a bumpy road!  Hee Hee.  Silly I know. 


Good luck.  I hope you aren't chemically induced.  The reality is, after the pain and stress of your previous loss, you body may hold on long past 42 weeks!  I hope you were both able to grieve the loss of your twins.  I am so sorry you had to endure that kind of pain.  Chemical induction may be the only way to let your body relax enough to start labor.   But no matter the path to get there, the end point will be glorious!! 

If you are looking for an herbal labor inducer I would reccomend goinig to your local library and finding as much information as you can. BE VERY CAREFUL, many herbs are not safe for pregnant women. I remember for my first pregnancy I looked up herbal remedies for things such as leg cramps, heart burn, headaches etc  and I found Black Cohosh. It is for inducing labor but I would like you to research it and don't just take my word for it. There are a lot of differents sources for this information and not all are correct. Also if you live in a large town or city you might talk to a doctor that knows about herbal medicine before taking anything.

I have a question!

Hi my name is Lori and i am 17 years old, i am in grade 12 at a catholic highschool, and one of the courses  i have right now is parenting, we are learning about pregnancy, and giving birth. I was wondering if anyone of you had two pregnancy's, and if one was by a c-section and one was by a normal birth? I was wondering for a class assignment, which one would be better, a c-section or a normal birth? When i eventually start my own family i'd like to have a water birth just because it's relaxing and i heard it's alot more calming, and less streesful do you know if that's true, and if there's any concerns about a water birth?

I'm Pregnant!

 Hi, my name is Sarah and I am 17. I am pregnant with a baby boy due in Feb. I am really scared, insecure, and overwhelmed with joy. I am married to the baby's father and we are definately keeping him. I am just not sure if I can reach the standards of a good mother. I was wondering if there is/was anyone in a situation like mine (age-wise) and if they have any words of advice. Support and encouragement is of course appreciated from everyone, lol. 

                 Thanks bunches

Hi my friend was 17 when she had a baby, and she was very nervous too. She wasn't sure if she'd be a good mother or a bad mother, or if she could financailly take care of her son. Well in the long run it all worked out! she has support from welfare, and family, and she's doing really good! Everyone's a good mother, maybe nto at everything, but that's something we all have to work on right? I'm glad you're married to your son's father that's going to make your family an easier experience! Well best of luck and congratulations to you and your husband

I can't tell if I am pregnant

Hey everyone.. I need some advice... My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for the past several months but the past week or two I have noticed alot of things.... I am more irritable(b*tchy), like everything my husband does or says I get mad at or sad about..... I am getting cramps like I am going to have my period in a few days, and I have headaches just about every day... I have not taking a pregnancy test yet because I do not want it to come back negative.... Plus I think that it is too soon to take a test because my period is not supposed to be here for another 2 1/2 weeks....I would like the input of the mom's out there on what you think... Thanks everyone
