We have watched videos from a lot of different sources but I always find that yours offer the most information. Thank you for making these videos for those of us who want to know what’s going on in there!:)

  • Hi Sofi, Thank you for contacting us. Aches and pains are all a part of pregnancy as your body goes through many changes. If the pain is not constant and eases when resting then don’t worry about it. If it continues though I would mention this to your doctor. Thanks again and I wish you well. Kind regards Monica

  • Hello, I’m 17 weeks n 1 day today, I was put on b12 and iron pills because of my levels (just like our last baby) during delivery my my blood pressure was EXTREMELY high my heart rate was really high and I developed a really bad fever as well but my nurse said it wasnt preeclampsia, also my swelling was EXTREMELY bad I couldn’t walk and needed ultrasounds on my legs because they thought I had clots, is there any chance this could happen again?

  • My buddy and her husband have been looking to have a child for 3 years. Their advisors have not been able to assist them as well. My friend decided to follow this guide and after months of sticking to the plan, her conception was successful. You can learn about this method more by getting to Google. I remembered its name is Sofia Goρazna
    take care

  • Thank you for contacting us.

    You mention that this is your first pregnancy. Many first time Mom’s don’t develop a baby bump till the third trimester. All pregnancies are different. All Mom’s come in different sizes and will all carry their babies a little differently. It can take as long as 22 weeks before you will feel the baby kick so please don’t worry. Rest assured that baby’s is kicking around in there even if you can’t feel him.

    Kindest regards.

  • M 18 weeks with my first baby and I felt the kicks from 17 weeks, they are now more frequent especially in the early hours of the morning after I pee

  • hello… this is my 1st prgncy,i’m 18 week pregnant! i feel my baby kicks and movements.. i’m very much excited to know i’m having a girl or a boy..?

  • Every doctor on other videos are saying it is more average to feel baby start moving/kicking at weeks 20-22, especially for first time moms! Moms who have already had one baby often feel other babies moving earlier than that. So don’t worry too much if you haven’t felt baby kicking until week 20. I’m at 18 weeks and this is my first baby, I have felt some movements but not big kicks yet, I’m not worrying about it so far!

  • Can’t believe I am 18 weeks already. Feels like just the other day I was making memories about being 4 weeks. I live seeing what is happening to my beautiful little girl each week. I am watching sooo many pregnancy videos! Drinking lots of milk and eating lots of fats this week

  • Hello Chelsealynnism,

    This tightening of your belly is absolutely normal. These are what I would describe as Braxton Hicks and will increase in intensity as your pregnancy progresses. It should be painless and you will get used to how they feel. Do mention at your doctor’s visits though.

    Kind regards

  • I’m 17 weeks 6 days today. We go for our ultrasound tonight. This is our 4th baby. I don’t know why I am so nervous this time around for the ultrasound. With my other pregnancies I had an ultrasound earlier on to see how things were and get a due date. This time around I didn’t have an early ultrasound and I think that has made me worry more? I’m afraid what if they find something bad or something? Idk I can’t figure out why I’m so paranoid this time around. Hoping we will see the gender!

  • Get plenty of rest, drink plenty of fluids (I know this is difficult if you are queasy but the more hydrated the less sick you will feel), wear loose fitting clothing, avoid spicy food, eat very small meals more often, go for a daily walk even if you don’t feel like it. I hope this helps. Kind regards Monica

  • Oh congratulations 😉 A baby is the biggest luck in life, even though the way is full with little kicks in the belly xD All the best and I hope you keep watching the videos.
