since I am a mom myself, I just thought to ask how many kids do you have and what are their ages. How did you pick out their name(s)? What was your story behind each kids that was born and/or adopt? I do know that there are people that adopt which was also why I asked. i personally gave birth to each of them at three different times. I remember most of the details of what happened to me. I was lucky enough to not get any c section but unfortunately, I was one of the many women who are new moms that have stretch marks but they were only from my first pregnancy when I was at the biggest between all three of them. If you are a mom that gave birth, how big were you and how big was your babies the day they were born? My first one was 8 lbs. 5.2 oz, second was 9 lbs 1 oz and my third one was 7 lbs. 14.5 oz. I was amazed at how little I am but was able to give birth to all three of them. Without them, I would not be a better person. My girls were here with me to motivate me to change my own life and everything mainly for me but also for them. I love them each for their own special way.

In India we used to weigh in kgs. My husband had a paralytic attack and was under treatment from March 23 of 2008 and he was completely came outof this sickness. He could walk and talk easily. But on25 th of May he complained about severe back pain I used massage with oilments etc but it did not cure and on 29th he had gone for the morning walk and returned I was in a hurry to office. Both kids were at home as it was vaccation for them. He had a cardiac attack at 11.30 am before reaching hospital he left. My neighbour and my son took him to hospital They informed me that he is hopitalised so come fast. I reached by 1 pm but everything was complete. I could not see him. God has taken him in his hand.

Thanks for sharing there. I have two girls that was born in January themselves. My second one was born on the 10th while my third and for now, the youngest was born in the third. It's amazing how our life and priorities change after having them huh? My first one is now 7 and she was born on July 13, 2001. It was three months away from my 22nd b day at the time. She was 21 inches. For my second one was half an inch more and the third was my smallest at 20 inches. I love using them as my motivation in life. Amazing how kids can change a person for the better.

I do love having my lil girls and I wouldn't trade them in for anything. Not even for money. You can always make money but as for the kids, they are definitely irreplaceable. I have been a mom since I was 21 and even though I love my kids very much, I wish that I listen to others who told me that after having kids, deciding and sticking to a career will be harder. I am somewhat envious of a chinese friend of mine that live in Houston, Texas while I am here in Seattle where she is financially independent on her own and to not need a guy to help her out. But her boyfriend though isn't though so yes. He is jealous. But anyway, she doesn't have kids at the moment but when she does have one, she would at least be financially stable on her own whether she stays with the guy or not. I think that she is planning to have kids someday but for now, she is doing her own thing. I am also pregnant with our fourth child, another girl which is baby number four, will be with us out here in the world somewhere in February. I am not looking forward to the day on getting contractions. I do love the epidural which is for sure. Without it, I would be rolling in pain.

I assume that you love being a grandparent, huh? I became a mom myself with my first one 3 months before my 22nd b day. It's amazing how times sure go by so fast before you know it. I hope that you are teaching your last two about stuff like in order to take care of themselves before they both move on out. Do they have any plans like for college later on or no? When I was younger,I thought graduating high school with a diploma would be it. After I got pregnant with my second one, I knew that I needed to change my life so I decided to go to college while I was pregnant and had to take the bus for most of the time at the time. This time around, I have a 9 month old who had motivated me as well to do better than what I am currently in so going to start online college on the 13th. I can't wait to get my free laptop and webcam. I am so going to use them to help me make even more money.

Ouch. C section? I had always dread the c section thing. I had talk to a few about it and they said it was nothing. To me, it must be painful as well since your stitches have to heal before doing some things like exercise. My oldest is 7 and in 2nd grade, my second daughter is in headstart and the 3rd child is almost 9 months old. Each of them are at least 3 years apart from each other. I'm 5'0 so imagine my surprise when I was told that my middle child at the time was 9 lbs 1 oz. I was lucky to not get a c section due to my size. If you would like to see my myspace profile, let me know. I'll be more than happy to share the link on here too.
