Hi I'm new and live in Sweden HELP!

I'm Katt and I'm 24. I recently got married and moved from my homeland England, UK to Sweden as my husband is from there. I'm a first time mom to be and extremely anxious. I mention that because I have anxiety and panic attacks and IBS. Oh and here in Sweden they only believe in midwife led care and first trimester check ups are pretty much non existent. My first appointment is next week to ask me about my smoking, drinking and depression if any. I'll read around and see what kinda advice ...

Unplanned Pregnancy

Overwhelmed and Uncertain

I've been with my boyfriend for nearly two years. We're both very happy together. Our relationship is stable and so loving. We both have good jobs. I just finished my degree and my boyfriend is in the process of getting his degree. I'm 23 and he's 32. I'm happy with my life now and enjoy that there are no disruptions. One thing that changed in our relationship recently was my decision to get off birth control. I was having side effects and took the advice of my doctor to get off of it and see if...

Am I Pregnant

CD 28, sore breasts for one week+, could I be pregnant?

Hello ladies. I'm new to this site, so excuse any mess ups. My fiance and I are very sexually active. We occasionally use condoms, but most of the time we rely on the pull out method. So we aren't actively trying, but we aren't really preventing either. My period started on the 5th of March, and it lasted for an abnormally long time (8 days instead of my usual 4) and there were no cramps accompanied with it, which is odd for me. I'm pretty sure I ovulated on or around the 17th. I had a huge surg...

1st Trimester Spotting - Please share your POSITIVE outcomes

I keep seeing all these posts across the internet about spotting from freaked out moms to be with no resolution. It can be a very scary thing to have spotting during the first trimester and reading through mountains of threads where the OP never updates about her outcome doesn't help. I can certainly understand not wanting to update if there is a pregnancy loss, but I swear NONE of these threads have an outcome and I know they can't all be bad!! So I decided to make a happy positive thread about...

Question About Weight Gain?

I will be 10 weeks tomorrow (yaye!) but I have a question about weight gain. Everything I've read has said you shouldn't gain more than 3-5 pounds during the first trimester. Pre-pregnancy, I am 5'0" and I weighed 98 pounds. However, I weighed myself the other day and I was surprised to see 106! I only eat healthy foods- oatmeal with a banana every morning, and only snacking on fresh fruits and veggies with grilled chicken salads for lunch/dinner. Occasionally I will allow myself some junk food ...

Doctor or Midwife?

By JustMommies staff

When you think of the word midwife, often the first thing to come to mind is home birth. Although some midwives do oversee births at home, the majority of Certified Nurse Midwives, CNM's, deliveries are in a hospital setting. If you have a healthy, low-risk pregnancy, a midwife may be a good choice for
