Wow. I`m at that age and it took us a year to get pregnant. And it is not up to `god`. It`s your biology that determines it- that part you got right!

Hi sweet mammaa. All I can suggest is that if you find you can`t give them up completely- you go down to one smoke a day. One cigarette a day is not going to harm the baby or cause premature birth. One pack a day will. Good luck, cut back now!

This is a lie. It`s different for every woman. I`m at that age and first time I had sex with my husband I got my daughter that same week. My test was positive. Don`t let these ignorant people tell I different. And yes I`m 35. Don`t let that 16% fool u. It`s whatever you body and god says.. These doctors and scientist don`t know a dang thing about u or ur body..

In Growth and Development > Smoking
I smoke one cigarette every Friday evening (during this preganancy and my first). It gives me something to look forward to- besides the beautiful baby!!! It is a small and selfish `reward` that I convinced myself will not effect the child in any way.

I mean, think about it. Until the 80s- women were still smoking 1-2 packs a day while pregnant. All of those people are grown adults now. My husband, SIL and mother are three people whose mothers smoked throughout their pregnancies-heavily. They have no health problems to speak of. We went from a society that doesn`t give a rat`s a$$ about introduced toxins in the fetal environment to a society that is completely paranoid about everything!

I say, if you can do things in moderation- a cigarette a week, a glass of wine a month- go for it. If you cannot control yourself, then stop completely. I know I am going to receive some backlash for this comment, but I don`t care. My kid has been exposed to the bare minimum in regards to toxic cigarette smoke. And I truly believe she`ll be a stronger person for it after she is born.

To the ladies with cramps...my obgyn said they are normal. It`s the uterus contracting and expanding. I have them intermittently. They are not severe though. Like early days before getting period. They come and go. It`s been a few days but I take it as a good sign. Kind of like morning sickness... That`s a sign of a healthy pregnancy. Sending love and happy thoughts your way. Hope your bundle of joy is growing like it should! Xoxo

it`s normal,generally in early pregnancy up about 13 weeks, you will feel something that is like menstral cramping, it`s your uterus growing, if you become more worried about it, or the cramping grows worse, then see your gynocologist.

If you`re having problems getting pregnant like I did, my partner & I ended up on clomid, still taking forever to concieve. My docs offered me a HSG test, (a dye inserted into your ovaries to see if it flows out, so no blockages) and after having this done after a year and ahalf of trying, it worked! After reading so much positive comments on pregnancy after HSG, we were delighted to add our happiness to the list of other whom it worked on. Please girls, ask for a HSG if you can. I am 100% it worked for us! currently 9 weeks & 5 days! xxxx

All I can really say is just for you to relax and be patient. No one will be able to tell you anything, honestly. Just give it time, take a test and go from there.

In time you will get your baby. Good luck <3
