What's up with this site?????

lots of our members are pregnant/expecting, including ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


i am total and utter shock, this was not something that was planned, i am only 23 and we are not even engaged yet! (we were supposed to get engaged next month on my birthday apparantly!) we do live together, have been together for over 6 years and have a fantastic, supportive and loving relationship, so i guess that's the right foundations?

i am apparently 6 weeks gone, and will be expecting a "little bundle of joy" around the first week in september.

i cannot believe that i will be a mum at christmas! how different is my christmas going to be??? i hope it isn't a crier and disturbs my viewing of my favourite christmas films! all joking aside, i am TERRIFIED. i don't feel i am ready for this, i need as much help and support as i can get, i am not sure i am what you would call a "natural mother"

what is really making me worry is the fact that my career was going so well, i'm not sure how many of you know this but i am an actress and i had just signed with an agent and finished my first professional play (due to start again in march) i really want a career and i have a very supportive family who have promised to help out when he/she is born so i can return to work, i only hope it's that simple and i haven't missed my chance.

any advice/support you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!

It's just too wholesome for it's own good!!!

Eat lots of green veg and fruit. Trust me, you'll need the fruit before too long!!!!!!!

Congratulations to you both!! Babies do not come with instructions (I've always said that they should) but you will do fine. Stay calm, and let your man pamper you. It will all work out.

Babies are a very special gift to treasure for a lifetime.
You're very blessed.
When you see that beautiful baby at the end of the pregnancy...wow..you're going to be in love.
Take care of yourself!

Congratulations! Everything will work out! Sometimes the best things in life are those that are "unexpected". Your family sounds very supportive, so don't worry about it all. Just enjoy being pregnant, and I;'m sure your "motherly" instincts will take over when your bundle of joy makes their arrival!
