Writing helps me cope
Hi. My name is Tamara and I am new to this community. It has been a couple years since I last injured myself. In December of 2007 I attempted suicide and I am so happy to be alive right now. I have been doing much better and have surrounded myself with things and people that make me happy and feel more positive. I have always found comfort in writing. Writing has helped me get through a lot of the struggles that I have endured while growing up.
I recently got my book, "Stumbling and Mumbling", published and it is up for sale. I know I am not supposed to advertise here but I believe that people here may be able to relate to what I have written and it may even help them. It helps to know that you are not alone in your fight.
The other issues covered in the writing in this book include domestic violence, suicide, love, death, mourning, addictions, growing up, and finding oneself.

anyone else... please
I really don't mean to be a downer... but is anyone else out there beginning to hate the fact that they are pregnant? I'm 13w2d and I can't not recall a single day from the beginning of this that I haven't been unGodly sick. I have constant headaches that go away for exactly six hours while the tylenol is working and then come back like clock work as soon as the medicine even begins to where off. I have nausea all day long. I can't sleep. I'm miserable.
I am so excited about this child and being a mother, but I am beginning to despise the pregnancy process. Please someone tell me that they are experiencing at least a little bit of these feelings...

Just wanted to give everyone an update on Susan Torres, the brain-dead woman who was being kept on life support for the last few months, for the slim chance that her unborn child would have enough time to develop.
As you may have heard on the news, Susan delivered a healthy baby girl on Tuesday! Named after her mother, baby Susan was born three months premature, weighing 1 pound, 13 ounces, and is being cared for in neonatal ICU. The baby has a very good chance of survival.
Susan was taken off life support yesterday. One can only imagine the grief of the husband, but at least now he can take a baby daughter home.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and support for this family who has suffered so much.
You can see a picture of baby Susan here: http://www.susantorresfund.org

Woman is kept alive to save unborn baby
Survival hopes hinge on mom living at least a month more
You may have seen this article in the news lately. This young Catholic couple graduated from my alma mater, and are caught in an unbelievably difficult and unusual situation. When his pregnant wife succumbed to a stroke and was later pronounced brain dead, Jason made the decision to keep her body on life support until their unborn child is old enough to be delivered. The odds are not good, but if Susan can be kept alive for a few weeks more, the child has a chance of survival.
The emotional and financial burden on Jason is unimaginable. Please keep Susan, Jason and the children in your prayers. If anyone would like to make a donation to help with the hospital bills, you may do so here: Susan Torres Fund

This is kind of random, but I've been looking around LJ for somewhere to post about this and thougt this was the best place (I wanted to post in prolife
. I used to be a member, but now I'm not anymore for some reason.)
I have a friend she is 16 and she thinks she's pregnant. What do you think she should do? She's really scared and doesn't know who to talk to (especially people she knows in real life because shes scared of what they might say or do or think of her, like call her a slut and stupid and stuff like that) or where to go. She's really confused. I don't know what I'm going to do.
I know there are a lot of pregnancy communities around here, but I get the feeling that most of them are pretty much all prochoice and I know for a fact that my friend is prolife and she doesn't want people telling her she should get an abortion even though sometimes she think she should and she feels so guilty and bad and awful for even thinking about that.
Thanks for your help. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place for this

I wanted to say hello, and introduce myself... I had my son, almost 5 months ago at the age of 18. His father and I are thankful everyday that we chose to have him as well as raise him. I am affliated with Birthright, an organization that helps women and couples with their baby. I look forward to getting to know you all :D

hello out there, boys and girls ... this is your friendly moderator back from never-never land. or something.
i'm not really keeping up with this thing because i don't have regular internet access anymore. plus i just had my second child about 3 weeks ago, and those of you parents out there know how consuming pregnancy and new baby care is.
did a little cleanup, deleted some irrelevant entries. even if it's benign, if it has nothing to do with the community, it gets deleted once i've read it. if you need a refresher, look at the community's info page for what' considered relevant to the community's purpose.
again, guys ... anyone interested in helping me out here? i can't really be here very often, as you may notice by scrolling down a bit and looking at when i last posted here.
ok, happy stuff now ... as i said, i just had another baby. i got pregnant last june, right after leaving my husband and moving back in with my parents. my first girl was unplanned, but this whole thing just threw me for a loop ... i was terrified to tell my parents, but everything worked out ok ... the bottom line is, they may not approve of or condone everything i do, but they will love any child that i have, regardless of the circumstances. i'm pretty lucky, and i know it.
amorette marie was born on february 21st at 2:57 am, one day before her due date and completely naturally - no pain medication; and no, i'm not crazy. ^_^ she is beautiful and gorgeous, and her father and i adore her to pieces. it doesn't matter what situation my life was in when she was conceived ... i love her. she is my little girl, and no matter what, i will always be here to look after her and potect her.

I'm going out on a limb here, and I doubt anyone will actually go for this but... I have a friend in need. She is a pregnant teen but her mother refuses to let her have a baby shower so now her little girl is going to be born without all the goodies a lot of us thankfully got to give our children.
I'm throwing her a baby shower behind her mom's back... thing is - I only have 4 people to invite and that's not much. If any of you guys would be interested in getting her something (however small it doesn't matter, it's the thought that counts) PLEASE EMAIL ME. PlsmaChic@excite.com
She's having a little girl, & she's due on October 8th (so this is all really last minute)she hasn't registered anywhere because she doesn't think she's getting a shower, and the only thing she has is a crib (and she's breastfeeding). She could use diapers, pacifiers, outfits, etc. or even a gift card to babies r us or something... Thank you for everything and God bless.
Please help her if you can... Thank you.

holy fork ...
ok, i've been away from computer access for a bit, and i come back to find a big freaking flame war ...
i've banned xxxcherrypiexxx
, and i was tempted to ban a couple of other people due to things they said ... but i'll let it slide for now. please don't feed the trolls, kids. they're like gremlins - they multiply. i also deleted the entry she posted to the community because it just really doesn't belong here.
i'm not here often enough, and i know it ... i've been thinking about the fact that this place should really be moderated more effectively. this is not
a pro-life community, it is a community for people from any side of the debate about abortion, war, euthanasia, etc., to find some common ground in having chosen life at some point - not necessarily in a case of pregnancy. if you don't get that after looking a the community's info page, you don't belong here.
i'd like an intelligent pro-choice mod and an intelligent pro-life mod to help me out ... one of each, and no playing favorites. if a post is against anything or anyone, it doesn't belong in this community. we're here to celebrate existing life, not freak out about people who we don't agree with. i'm glad that most of the people around here seem to be intelligent, and i apologize to anyone who may have been offended by the silly little troll. if you're interested in modding, leave a comment here or try to catch me on aim - my screenname is babygothangel.
thanks, guys ... and again, i apologize.

Hello, I just stumbled across this community and decided to join. My name is Brigette and I'm 25 as of yesterday and have a 4 1/2 year old son. He was concieved as a result of rape, and I didn't have an abortion. However I'm not pro-life (which most people assume), I'm still very much pro-choice, believing it's wrong to tell a woman what she can or can't do in that situation. I guess I'm proof that all pro-choicers have abortions. I don't want to be on a soap box or anything, just thought I'd introduce myself.
