    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi Everyone!

    After a few days of intense mood swings, frequent urination and a missed period, I took a test. Those two little lines popped right up!

    I haven't told anyone- I'm still in shock. My boyfriend and I recently moved in together, and just got back from a trip from paradise about a month ago.

    Boy, is he going to get a surprise tonight!

    Well, his reaction isnt quite what i'd hoped for.

    He laughed for a few minutes, and then shut down.

    Im 24, he is 27. We've been dating a year, we live together, and we both are fairly succesfull with our careers. Our only obsticles are that I am returning to school in june, and we arent married.

    He says this is not a healthy environment for our child- I agree that this is not how I thought it would happen and I am just as shocked as he is, but we have the potential to make great parents. I am so torn, sad, and confused.

    let it all sink in. with my son, i was 23 and had just left his bio father. now i am married and 6 wks along and my husband wanted this child as badly as i did. he was stand-offish for about a wk after i told him but is now coming around. if your in a bad environment then fix it if you can. if you cant right away then i'm sure as long as mom and dad are with baby, the baby's not going to mind. I was in a bad place with my son for the first 2 1/2 yrs. he still loves me and no matter where we are he's happy. :-D you two will be just fine. no worries!
