Guestbook for Kathrine´s Pregnancy Pages

******** Received from Melissa ([email protected]) - 1998.02.26-16.03.57 ********

Just saw your webpage and thought I'd sign the guestbook. I'm expecting my third child in September. My youngest child is 4 and we weren't planning this third child. I just am seeing what's on the web and trying to get more information on pregnancy and childbirth again. Seems longer than four years ago, well almost 5 since I had my last baby. Anyway, nice page and I hope this gets to you in Norway.

Just wanted to say Hi from St. John's, Newfoundland Canada. It is great to be in touch with others around the world, and what a better topic in common than Pregnancy. It happens everywhere! I lived in Oslo, Norway for four years from 1974-1978 while my father was posted to the NATO HQ with the Canadian Army. It was a wonderful experience. I love both the country and the people. Now I am married with one son, Philip born June 30, 1993 and other child on the way, due June 10, 1998. See a trend here! All the best for now. Ann

I love children and even though I have had many struggles with my pregnancies I was so happy with the outcome. I would like to have a sixth child before I turn 40. Anyway, thanks for the Page!!

This is just a suggestion but if you could find pictures of what the fetus looks like in the three trimesters of pregnancy it would improve the amount of information on your page. I am a sophmore in high school and some pictures of the unborn fetus are needed for a Child Development class project. Just a suggestion.

Hello- This is my first pregnancy and I am 5 months along and I have been trying to find out some info on pregnancy. Like what I will be experiencing this month and so forth. I am very excited to be pregnant and can't wait until the baby arrives. My due date is August 13, 1998. We still don't know the gender and I would love to know if its a girl or boy, doesn't matter the sex, I just gotta know!!! I have very little patience when it comes to these kinds of things and all I want is a healthy baby and to know what the gender is, that's all.. However, I will just have to wait as bad as I hate to, to find out the gender. Janelle Houchens

******** Received from April Nelson ([email protected]) - 1998.04.20-21.19.04 ********

Hello! My name is April, and this is my first baby. I had terrible morning sickness. I was in the hospital of seven weeks. I didn't start getting sick until the six week. In my sixth week I started bleeding very heavy, I went to the hospital they thought I was miscaring. I wasn't come to find out, but they still do not know why I was bleeding so bad. Ever since then I was sick, up until the sixtenth week. I'm finally feeling better. I wish I knew if me bleeding like that had something to do with me being so sick. My family history is Finnish and Norwegian. Maybe that has something to do with it. Things now are good, and baby is due August 8, 1998.

Your maternity leave sounds wonderful. In Boise, Idaho most companies don't even offer maternity leave. With my son I saved my two weeks vacation time and one week sick leave. The rest was without pay. Most mothers around here are lucky to be able to take eight weeks off total. You really are lucky to have such a great system.

Hi, my name is Jenni. I thought your page was really neat. I have a son named Keegan Pyne Harper. He just turned two on Mothers Day. I am also pregnate with another boy, his name will be Kamden Park Harper. He is due on July 1, 98. I can't wait another day for him. My life now revolves around Keegan. I am hoping he will adjust well to having a little brother. He has always been the center of my attention. How did your daughter take to her little brother? I try to tell Keegan about Kamden. He will point to my belly and say "brother", "baby", or sometimes he will even try to say "Kamden". Sometimes he will pat the baby or give him a kiss. I am sure Keegan will grow up to be the loving, protective older brother that my brother was. Jenni, Winter Haven, Fl

Hi Kathrine. I am a 23 Year old mother of two boys, 6 and 2 and am expecting my first daughter on my 24th birthday in August. This pregnancy has been so different than my last two, I am constinatly tired and have adominal pains whenever I walk for more than 15 minutes. I can't wait until the baby comes so I can make it through the day without faling asleep!!!!! I was very impressed with the support you seem to recieve there in Noraway as a parent. My husband and I decided after our first child was born than no matter what I should stay home with the children, So many children are raised in day-care centers here in america and it saddens me. We barely scrape by paying our bills on $15,000 U.S. Dollars a year but we manage by being money consoius and realizing our wants from our needs. I know that being there for our children is the most important job I have and even though a this pregnancy was unplanned we feel blessed and we know somehow we will make it through. We have always viewed our babies as a gift not a burden. Alot of people think we are crazy for having so many children on such a fixed income, we are considered below poverty, but we view ouselves as rich and that is how we are raising our angels. I hope someday other people will realize that material posesssions are not so important and that the children of the worlds future need a constant parent, never to busy with work or other things. Maybe our government will some day give us stay at home parents the support we need.Sorry I guess I've ramble don to long. Hug and kiss your two beautiful kids eachday. Thank you for your web-site from Arkansas USA.

Hi, my name is Josee and I am pregnant with my second child. My little boy is 5 (Jordan). I had a easy pregnancy with Jordan, no morning sickness or nothing, but had a very bad birth, I was 22 hours in labour and finally had an urgent cesarian. I hope this one goes much better, I hope they will give me the choice to have another cesarian! With this pregnancy, I am feeling alot of nausea and my stomach is already so big and I'm only due on March 9, 1998! Sometimes I wonder if I'm not having twins! I feel like my stomach is going to explode! Is this normal? I'm really worried about this, my tummy is very big for only 8 weeks! Should I worry? Plus people tell me that it will be a girl this time since I'm having completely different symptoms than with Jordan, is this true? Thanks. Terrific web page.

hey, i am 15 years old and i'm not sure about pregnancy, i'm not that educated so i figured i'd cruise the web, i found this page and it helped some. see i am sexually active. i had sex with one of my partners, the only one i am active with now, or for the past two months. and on the 25th i had sex with him but it was with one of my new condoms that were lubricated but not spermicidal and they got warm in my pocket. we suspect that it tore but we aren't 100% it did. i have the tender breasts and my lower abdominal area. i also noticed, that my period should start soon, so the pains might just be cramps from hell. also i am binging and purging in my diet. one day or two i will go for no food, then i'll eat and eat and eat. i don't know whats up either. cause it could be some medications i'm on i'm on an anti depressant, and dexidrine, for adhd. but i've been on those for a while and i haven't had these side effects before. please help and email me your oppinion. ~nemawei a.k.a.

My second child was a home waterbirth and I completly agree about it's pain relief benefits. I am having the next one at a hospital with a midwife who completely supports laboring in a warm tub. I'n my opinion, it is much better than the epidural I received with my first son. Keep up the good work.

Greetings! We (Wife and I) live in Texas and are graduate students. Pregnancy will likely be here before real jobs and we are researching (without much luck) ways to pay for maternity costs. Our individual health plans don't cover maternity costs. Any ideas folks? Thanks. JT & Becky

Kathrine, your children are so unbelievably beautiful! I'm 35 weeks pregnant with my first child and can't wait! I hope my delivery is as perfect as yours were! I am having hip pain as well. It's like a loosening where my tailbone meets my pelvis. At its worst, I can't bear weight on my left leg. Sometimes crawling on my hands and knees helps. Sitting on my futon definitely makes it worse! Thank you for your page! I will send you my story when I have this baby! Jamie

HI. I'm currently 40 weeks and 2 days with my first pregnancy. I haven't felt any pain to speak of...no braxton hicks or back pain. The only thing that tells me that I am pregnant is the ultrasounds, 50+ lbs gained, and fetal movements that feel like a soccer game inside. I went to the doc today and they told me that my baby's head is down, but still floating and therefore I haven't dropped. My cervix is still normal and no dialation to speak of. What is going on here?? It looks like my body doesn't want to get ready for this little monster ...is this normal? do you hear stories like this often? please help!!

Nearly two weeks ago we lost one identical twin granddaughter at 25 weeks gestation. At 16 weeks we had found out that the girls were suffering from twin-to-twin transfussion syndrome. My daughter-in-law had two septonomy procedures done where they put a small hole in the membrane to help equalize the amniotic fluid in each sac. These seemed to have worked, the bags of water were even. So, when they did the weekly ultrasound and Libby didn't have a heartbeat, we were numb. We thought we were over the hump and were just trying to fatten the girls up! My daughter-in-law had even been on bed rest for 9 weeks. Now we are seeing two doctors each week and they are starting the shots to mature Kendall's lungs. Many people don't understand the sorrow we are still going through. They say,"You really didn't know her. You have another baby." You can't replace a child. The health and well being of Kendall is hanging in the balance now. My daughter-in-law is now carrying both babies inorder to give Kendall more time to grow. My heart breaks everytime I see her. How do you say hello and good-bye at the same time. As we look to the birth we are also looking at a funeral too. Thank you for having sites like this one for people who have lost children or grandchildren.

Hello! I really found your Home-page interesting! I understand that by hip pain you mean "bekkenløsning" as it is called in Norwegian!? I am a Norwegian woman and have had this handicap for nearly 8 years. In Sweden common words for hip pain are "Foglossning" or "Bäckensmärtor". In Denmark they often call it "Bækkenløsning" and on Iceland "Grindarlos". In The Netherlands words as "Bekkenproblemen in relatie tot Symfysiolyse" and "Bekkeninstabiliteit" are used. In England they use words as "Pelvic dysfunctions caused through pregnancy". Internet-adresses to organisations for women with hip pain: Denmark: http://hjem.get2net.dk/fob/ Iceland: http://www.heimsnet.is/grindarlos/ England: http://dsp.future.easyspace.com The Netherlands: http://www.spin.nl/063g0401.htm References to scientific reports on hip pain can be found on PubMed or Medline by search by words as "low back pain during pregnancy" or "Pelvic girdle relaxation". I wish you luck! Anne Randi

Hello my name is Karli. Here is my story on the birth of my daughter. My preganancy was unplanned and of some shock after getting over the shock of being pregnant l was very happy about it.By six weeks of pregnancy l was experiencing constant morning sickness. This lasted until well into the fourth month,but l thought of nonthing of this as so many other pregnant women had told me that they had morning sickness as well all thourgh their pregnancy's.At around 18 weeks my doctor did a ultrasound on me to see if the baby was growing it was nice and healthy but when the doctor said the baby was lying in a beech position it might me l will have to have a c-section but he said it might turn the right way.I left the hosptial in a upset way hoping the baby will turn by the next ultrasound which was made for me on the 23rd week of pregnancy. Kept fingers gross and hoping it had turned. At 23 weeks of pregnancy my mum and l went into the hospital to have the second ultrasound to see if it had turn around into the head down postion.When we got to the hospital my fingers were still grossed. When l had the ultrasound the doctor said everything was right with the baby and it was growing so well but it had not turn it was still in the beech postion. Also around the 23rd week of pregnancy l was having a few problems with swelling in my legs,hands and l also experienced quite a few other discomforts: heartburn,constipation,bleeding gums and leg crumps.At 28th week of pregnancy l had my final ultrasound to confirm if the baby was still in the beech postion when the doctor said everything was growing well he said he had some bad news for me,which was the baby was in the beech postion still,he said to me that l will have to have a c-section,when doctor said this l just broken down cryed because that meant l gould not give birth natural and l will have to have c-section.Thourgh all of this l did not feel unhealthy.I just thought preggnancy was a real bother and when l did become concerned there was other women all could talk to and they said their pregnancy's were a lot worse,l just thought of being happy after l had good talk with other woman.When l had my next vist to see the doctor we had a good talk about what was going to happen when it was time to have this baby.The doctor checked me over evething was alright,after this he booked me in to the hospital to have my c-section it was booked for the 15th of march 1999.It was a big shock to me still that l had to have a c-section because was my first baby and would have like to have it natural but things happen for the best.The doctor booked me into hospital to have a weeks rest.Well on the thursday the 11th of march l went into labour at midnight so l was put on lv to stop the labour because l was not due have my c-section until the monday.When my doctor came up to the ward to see me he had a good look over me a said no you going to have your c-section today l said that's ok with me.The doctor said he will go a get the anesthesiobgist to talk to me about the epidural he explain to me what was going to happen to me which scared me alot but l was alright.I was allowed to have my mum with me while l had the c-section which made me feel better about the whole thing.When the anesthesiobgist was doing the epidual he was telling me when he was giong to stick the needle in so l wouldn't jump.After about 10 mintures l felt a bit dizzing and could not move my legs.Then my mum was allowed in with me after the epidural was finshed. Then l was wheeled into threater the doctors told me about the producer had what was giong happen.I was alert during my c-section,and l remember my daughter's birth.I also remember being very relieved when the midwife and the doctor's and mum said that chiara was just fine and a healthy baby.We live in Melbourne Australia.Bye for now. Thank-you for a good web site,keep up with the good work.

I think my hip pain might be different than the "Scandanavian" pain. I'm only 13 weeks, but for the past 5 weeks, I have had pain by early morning in my left hip. (I think from sleeping on my left side all night). Has anyone else experienced this, and what can be done?

I am only 14 weeks (Due in May) and I am having such horrible pain in my left hip and left groin. If I sit still it isn't bad, but as soon as I move, stand up, or walk it is this horrible pain. I have just spoke with the nurse at my OB GYN office and she told me to take comfort measures (Extra Strength Tylenol, heating pad on low, and to try to rest after work before making dinner for 30 mins. on the couch on my side). She told me that if I still have problems to contact my family doctor and possibly check into physical therapy. She was surprised to hear that I am having these symptoms already, but as long as there is no spotting or stomach cramps she said that the comfort measures should possibly help. This is my first pregnancy and I am really concerned. There are 2 other women at my work who are pregnant and think I am crazy. They just keep saying your hips or expanding for the baby. It feels more like seperating from my body. I have to hold onto something when I stand up because I feel almost wobbly. Your website was very interesting. I am shocked that there was even a website on this issue. Thank you. Hopefully these comfort measures help. I keep telling my husband and everyone for that matter, that my pregnancy class never warned me about this pain. They should for those of use who suffer with ciatica. Thanks Again.

Does anyone know a funny or cute poem to be read at a baby shower to the expectant mom. It could be about pregnancy, birth or whatever. I can't seem to find a good one. Thanks

This may be a silly question, but I'm only 16. My boyfriend and I had sex one night, and the next day I started my peroid. Then we had sex while still on my period. My question is, can I still get pregnant? I wasn't supposed to start so early, but I did. Thanks so much. Good luck with your baby.
