I've never imagined myself getting married and having a child of my own. For the past years I've been dating... and dating... enjoying my early 20's, my young professional years! Then in one snap I fell inlove with a guy I've been friends with for 10 years... he's just on my face and this was the only time I realized he'd be the man of my life! And now I'm carrying our most cherished treasure...our 18week old baby... priceless! I can't wait to see my baby out of my womb!!! This is how mothers feel... I just felt it and it's such an overwhelming feeling. I hope to hear from you guys... what do I need to do to have a healthy, intelligent and beautiful baby? I'm also a bit emotional and sometimes anxious but more often than not... I am happy and cheerful! Mothers' and doctors' advice if there's anyone here... it will be gladly appreciated.

hello im a mother of three. ages range from 4 years to 1 year. and felling the way you do just means you are going to be a great mother. i believe talking to even your unborn child helps. this way they are use to your voice. i talked to all my children everyday until they were born and they came out smiling from ear to ear. i hope you are blessed with a wonderful child, just like i was with mine.

CONGRATSTULATIONS! so happy to know the good news. are you keeping yourself busy like reading a lot of books that are very informative, answer questionnaires from pamphlet --- math, science & English grammar? those can be bought in bookstores. this will make your baby smart or very intelligent. never make undesirable comment against others, don't forget your medicines like vitamins for yourself & for the baby, talk to your baby always while conceiving, on your 8th & 9th month, read your baby a fairy tale before bedtime, you let your baby listen to music, try your best NOT to be sad or get mad. it can affect the baby's emotions inside your womb. exercise. don't drink beverages with caffeine. it can cause constipation. i hope i have given enough tips for you while conceiving.
