  • I’ll be having my baby boy Quentin James Alan Wills on July 22nd �� via C-section. I want him to come sooner for medical reasons but this hospital does things differently than the ones I had my other 2 children in.

I have weekly scans so it’ll be interesting to see if/when she turns around. Doesn’t matter to me since I’m having a repeat csection. My first son was posterior when I birthed him.

  • nothing that can make you feel more alone—or stressed out—than trying to conceive. While you might have spent the better part of your youth doing all that you could to not get pregnant, when you’re ready to build your family and the going gets tough, it’s normal to have anxiety. Though TTC can feel exhausting, frustrating and lonely, the CDC estimates that more than ten percent of all couples will struggle with fertility—that’s 1 in 10 partnerships.I want to thank God for putting a smile in my face, I have been looking for the fruit of the womb for the pass six years of marriage. I took in last year after taking the pill a dr gave to my husband, he met with a doctor you gave us assurance that I will get pregnant within a month after taking a particular pill. But I still call it magical pill, because it happen the way he said it. All thanks to God I have my own baby now and is a boy. You too can contact him if you have the same issue on [email protected] gmail.com or call and WhatsApp him on +2348128107710

  • I am quickly reaching a point where anything on the floor will cease to exist in my universe. The squatting down to retrieve the fallen thing is too much work. Also, I am feeling a little frustrated by how quickly I am tired. 5 mins of work seems like an infinity to me.

  • Hi Monica, I have always been doing follow ups on every week thru my pregnancy. I have just entered my 32 weeks today all is going well with baby and I, but however fr a week now I have been having this Dull pain in the palms of my hands and fingers, a dull pain with numbness and my fingers feel really stiff and tight especially in the mornings. I would like to know what is the cause of this and is it normal at this stage of pregnancy to be experiencing it?

  • I am 32 week pregnant,i was so excited but i attended my ultrasound apointmnt today,docter said we are worried about baby,she stopped growing and she is on border line..��i dont know what to do..

  • Why do they only refer to the baby as ‘she’? I don’t understand this. Changing from ‘she’ to ‘he’ or ‘he’ to ‘she’ would accommodate all expectant mothers no matter what they are having.

  • I’m 32 weeks and 1 day!!! just had our baby shower yesterday and even with covid 19 and all the craziness we had 17 people show up! We got amazing gifts and just had a beautiful day as a family �� I ordered a long night gown for the hospital and bought little mini shampoo and conditioners and 3 10 ft long phone chargers. It’s just nice to be prepared

  • I’m 32 weeks and still every three weeks a appointment I feel like cause it’s my third child it’s less important to the hospital well to me it’s very hard to feel shrugged off. I’m nervous about delivering and just want everything to go right.��every child matter

  • I love that she’s holding up an actual fetus size of 32 weeks. It makes me want to be more familiarized with my baby’s movement and to be more careful with how I carry him/her every day. Soo excited and nervous at the same time. Very grateful to God and for this video.

  • Y’all are dumb not the person that made this. I am 32 weeks today which makes me 7 months and 12 days ����‍♀️ at 36 weeks I will be 8 months and 40 weeks is 9 months wooohoooo ����‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️����‍♀️ I did the math

I’m so excited to see him but just a little more time and then he’ll be here ������������������. His big sister is the most excited she says she can’t wait to see him every day at least ten times a day. She’s only three but she’s ready and she says it’s her baby ������. This kid is loved immensely already.

  • Monica Healy, stop trying to sound like a news anchor by saying “Welcome to week “x” of your pregnancy-I’M Monica Healy!” with not even the slightest pause between “pregnancy” and “I’m”!!! �� So stupid.

  • I feel like my comment will get lost but please if anyone knows anything respond… I’m 31 weeks and my doctors told me my iron is low they proscribed iron supplements but I was told they wouldn’t be much use since it takes 4-6 months to get my iron fully there. They said more than likely we will have to do an IV to get the iron in my system the only thing I’m scared about is the risk of having my baby early and they a blood transfusions may be required please send tips prayers and information I need it all!!!

  • Hi, enjoy watching your videos week by week. Amazing tips in a motherly manner. Gave me lots of confidence and I’m looking forward for week 33 too. Please pray for my safe delivery. I pray and really hope my baby will come out full term and through my birth canal smoothly. Hopefully this miracle will happen in week 38. God bless all pregnant women. God bless you too.
