I'm so happy & proud of you Luvs!! You are in my thoughts every day sweetie! And yes, jkath is so very right! Hubby & I were only married 6 months before TC was born & we have had very few quiet moments since then. I wouldn't do it over again even if I could but I really think every newlywed couple needs "together time", as jkath said. Your health is the main concern right now too. We love you & just want you to be happy & healthy!!

Luvs I am so happy for you. I (sort of) know what you have been going through (well not really, but maybe just a little bit). I was underweight for a very long time, but I was not sick. I wanted to gain 20-30 pounds for many years. No matter what I did I could not gain. Well that sure did change one day. I am now trying to lose a little. I am thrilled that you are getting on the right track. Keep up the great work!

Also like the others I am going to say it again because it is so very important. Everything jkath said is so very true and so very important. Having a baby while drinking the way you sometimes do will do very bad things to the baby. also when you are pregnant the baby takes everything from you first and then your body takes what it needs for you second. If you are not completely healthy then chances are either the baby will not be very healthy or the baby will take what it needs first leaving you with not enough for yourself and you will get much much sicker. What she and everyone else said about having some time for the two of you is very important as well. A baby sure does change everything and there is no going back once you have one. We are all telling you this stuff because we love you and want to see you healthy and happy for a very long time

Yes -- ITA Luvs.

Jkath, Middie, Crewsk, and GB are giving very good advice, from the bottom of their hearts.

For your health, the baby's health, and your long term happiness -- I hope you will follow it.

Congrats Luvs! I'm glad your health is improving. Curious......What did they determined was the cause of your not gaining weight prior to the insertion of the feeding tube?

Having a baby is the most wonderful experience! It really does take a toll on your body though. I know how that longing for a baby just rips you to the core. But that lil guy or girl is totally dependent on you for those 9 months while they are inside you...........no one else. Its up to you to provide the safest and healthiest environment while he/she develops. Its all up to you to provide and protect. So have a serious discussion with your doctor, get his/her approval before you begin. Have your fiance go with you so that he understands what is expected prior to getting pregnant. But no matter follow the doctors advice!

I had my first when I was a few months shy of 21. My 2nd when I was 24 and my last when I was 33. I can tell you that I found such a difference in the way I was a parent at 21 to when I became one again at 33.

If I could do it all over again.........but still have the boys I have.........I'd of waited till I was at least 30 before I began having children. By then most people have experienced all their craziness, they've settled into a career and their just more settled.

Oh and don't forget to start taking folic acid at least three months before you start trying to get pregnant. Of course check with your doctor first to get his/her OK, but they are finding out that starting folic acid well before you are pregnant is very important.
