I am 25 weeks pregnant now. It's my first baby and I am enjoying my pregnancy day by day. Sometimes it's painful but it is the best felling I have ever felt. My baby is so active and naughty, he kicks all day and moves here and there like he is moving in a garden.

I keep on vomiting and feel so weak with the pregnancy. I can't sleep very well too. So hard for me to have a nap too.

I am 14 weeks right now and this is my second child. I am experiencing pains under my abdomen and what worries me so much is that am spitting too much saliva each and every second.

I'm pregnant with my 6th child and unlike my other pregnancies I experience nausea, swelling in my arms, feet and hands, and lower back pain. I'm in my 20th week.

According to 5 positive pregnancy tests I am 5 weeks pregnant with my first baby and I am terrified already and it doesn't even feel real it just feels like a dream, except for the symptoms they are real alright. I'm experiencing terrible dizziness and have no appetite whatsoever and the nausea is unbearable; foods I usually love make me vomit and this is only the start!

My pregnancies were, I can't say like a walk in the park, but they were all different in so many ways. Symptom was morning sickness, but all those 3 pregnancies were different. But it's all worth it after I gave birth. As much as I love having babies, I really don't like being pregnant and giving birth. Anyway, all's good. It's been 3 years since my last pregnancy.

I am 5 weeks pregnant in my second pregnancy; the first ended in miscarriage. I was just wondering how other mothers would describe how gas feels during the early stages of pregnancy.

I am about six months pregnant. This is my first pregnancy. I have experienced nausea, heartburn, swelling, and urinary frequency. My baby is very active. She moves all day long, which is quite interesting to feel her kick and shift positions. I tend to crave cheese. It's interesting because when my boyfriend's mom was pregnant with him, all she craved was cheese, too. Now it's getting close to the end, and I'm very excited and nervous. I just can't wait to see my beautiful baby girl.
