First Time Moms

Hi ladies!  I thought it might be nice to start a thread where first time Moms can post their pregnancy questions for "veteran" Moms to answer.  I know I had a ton of questions when I was pregnant with my first and some seemed too silly to ask my Doctor.  So, I asked on here and always got great answers from other Moms!  Feel free to post your questions for other Moms to answer!

Re: First Time Moms

Hi!  Right now, my biggest stress is how to navigate what I should and should not be eating.  I feel like having a panic attack any time I go to the cafeteria for lunch.  I've read no lunch meat, but then other places say it is ok if it is cooked.  Is bacon ok?  I've read no tuna, but then also read that tuna is good for you.  It is confusing.  Any advise on absolute NOs, and some "it is ok if you have tos"?

 

Thanks,

First Time Mommy

Re: First Time Moms

I am eleven weeks along. Due on January 30, 2014. I haven't been sick at all, which I know I should be thankful for. Sometimes it is hard to believe I am even pregnant. I am extra tired, and I feel like I'm sleeping all the time. I worry about miscarriage. I had my appointment at 10 weeks and heard the heartbeat (178 bpm). I've had no spotting or anything like that. Should I be worried?

Re: First Time Moms

I'm 12 weeks, due Jan 31 :smileyhappy: this is my first! My main problem is the sleeping, I can't seem to get to sleep at night, I'd be laying here feeling tired but not getting to sleep, then staying tired all day. Also, it's kinda eased some, but I always seeme to be hungry, sometimes I'd eat something and then a few minutes later I would feel like I was starving. I don't understand..

Re: First Time Moms

I'm a first-time mommy-to-be too and my due date is January 31st as well!! I also have a terrible time sleeping. My back always feels like it's killing me when I sleep on my side. I haven't had any morning sickness or nausea at all. I crave sushi (but it's hard to tell of any cravings because I was always hungry for random things before lol). But my main problems have been thirsty for water constantly, and then a stuffy nose. Other than that, I haven't had to much to complain about. Congratulations!!

Re: First Time Moms

Hey! I'm a first time mommy to be too and I'm so excited! I'm 17 weeks today and just found out last week were having a little boy!:smileyhappy: my fiancé is leaving for the army a week from today and is going to miss most of the pregancy, I need some advice on how to keep busy while he's gone and I'm not working in a few months? Also, I started to show a little, but not much, when is it normal to start showing a lot during your first pregnancy? Thanks!!:smileyhappy: and congratulations everyone!!!!

Re: First Time Moms

I'm 15 weeks & 3 days along. I am a first time mom & a little scared on what to expect. My sister has a little boy who is only 3 years old & he is a hand full. So it's a little stressful for me. I'm due January 29, 2014. I have nothing for the baby and is stressed that I wouldn't Havre everything I need. Money has been an issue since day one. Any advise will and can help! Please & Thank You!

Re: First Time Moms

I'm pregnant with my first child and 8m due January 30th. I have a hard time sleeping as well as the rest of you ladies. I had a question I'm 15 weeks soon to be 16 weeks and I'm not really showing at all, should I be concerned? I know everyone's pregnancy is different.
