Hey Shariee it's too late i'm already pregnant. Found out yesterday i'm 3 months along.

You're totally blessed! Shariee (previous poster) doesn't have a clue, and will probably raise queer kids just because she is more concerned about your lives than she is about her own kids. I am helping a couple have a second child--their first is a 13 year old boy and he is one of the most well-adjusted (I am a therapist, BTW), adolescent kids in the neighborhood (who insists he's straight). I also know a number of queer families, and, yes, one of them has had terrible problems with their daughter, but the moms are substance abusers--no different from straight families, sad to say. Please accept love and support from this total stranger, keep it clean, and you go, girls!

Bigdaddy HAS a therapist, thank you, and love her to pieces. Try it, you'll like it! This is a SUPPORT forum, and your deviant obsession with homosexuality is not welcome here. Go rescue abused kids from straight couples like I had to in my job, for crissake. Leave us alone so we can expend our energy raising happy kids.

I was addressing the previous post to RK, and not to the splendid Kortney, just in case it was not completely apparent. RK needs her own forum, the "Do not come here for support" support forum. Don't worry, she'll come around when her kid comes out to her.

Congratulations!

I'm sorry you're having to deal with such horrible closed-minded people here. I am a heterol married woman, who's 10 weeks along, myself. I was raised by a lesbian couple and can say that I was harrassed far more for not buying "cool" clothes than I ever was for having two moms!

Rest assured that if you and your partner are loving parents and surround yourself with a loving, supportive community (unlike what we're seeing in this forum, unfortunately), you and your kid will be just fine. I'd check around to see if there are any local LGBT support organizations who might have family workshops or chat groups. If you're anywhere near a big city, or even a smaller city with a university, there should be a community ready to help.

And I'll repeat the advice that people have given me over and over: while you're pregnant, do what you can to surround yourself with supportive, positive-thinking folks who care about you and the baby and make you feel good about yourself. Now is not the time to stress over hurtful remarks from small-minded twits.

Hi Izzy thanks for the kind words. It's something i really need right now. It's been hard enought being pregnant for me. I mean i've been sick a lot and really tired. But I guess it's just the joys of being pregnant huh?

Hi Kortney,
I am a lesbian mommie as well, my partner and I are in our 6th wk of a new life. I am proud of you for posting this and would love to keep having a dialogue with you. Our baby is due June 2006 so it will be a long haul, when is your baby due?

Well keep your chin up and surround yourself with positive energy. Ignore the ignorant comments from the small minded people, just move to the next reply :-). This is a world where we have to embrace all kinds of people. Remember a baby is a blessing from your higher power.
take care.

hi there, my partner and i have 2 girls (she was married before). we have been together for 3 years. one daughter is 5 and the other is 6. people don't really understand why we are together they think the kids need to be with a mother and father. but the girls don't seem to mind. they see there dad every 2nd weekend. you just need some supportive friends and family.
next year my partner and i are fostering a baby. but it may be different for us as we have the support of family. we did try ivf treatment with a sperm donor but that didn't work out.

Hey beebopmama thanks for the encouraging words. To answer your question. I'm due March 4th and it's been pretty difficult. I hope to hear from you soon. Take care sweetie.

Name: Kortney | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 4:35 PM
Hi April thanks for the stories it made me laugh. I needed it today cause i'm not feeling to well. I've been pretty sick today throwing up and i have a bad case of diaherra. What makes it worse is my partner's out of town for another week so i have to try to take care of myself. Anyway i hope to hear from you soon honey. 

Name: april | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 4:49 PM
im sry you arent feeling well but if it makes you feel any better im not feeling to gr8 their i have my 1st doctor visit at 230 so im worried i dont know next to nothing about having a baby so im like yes no i dont no that sorta thing i just cant get over snezzing a million times a day and my head aches they are horrible i swear and dont worry im alone also bc my fiance did some rather stupid things and is currently in jail so atleast yours is coming home soon be happy 

Name: Kortney | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 4:54 PM
I'm sorry to hear your not feeling well either. I know your nervous about your dr's appt. but don't worry you'll get through it honey. Also i'm sorry to hear you've got to do this on your own.
How much longer is your fiance in jail? 

Name: april | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 5:27 PM
honestly hes in there until he can make bond and im the only one who will do that for him but the thing is i would have 2 find some one else who would talk to the bonds man bc im not old enough in ga u have to be 25 to do anything like that so it really sux hes had a bond for 3 weeks i believe but ive got to call his attorney and see how much time he will spend if he doesnt make bond soo yea stress stress stress thats all it seems to be for me in the past month up to now hes been in there since oct 6th so we went from every day 24/7 contact to an hour and a half a week and through letters so its not easy 1 bit but i know i can do this its just hard sometimes he said all he wants to do is get out to go to work so he can support me and our child that he wants to be with me through me pregnancy and doesnt want me to go through labor alone with out him so thats helpful thinking that hes going to stay but i just wish he were out lol it would be so much easier! 

Name: Kortney | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 5:36 PM
Oh sweetie that's tough, yeah i can read the stress in your writing. I hope he gets out soon and can help you out. I'm sure you could probably use a massage. I know i could. I'm really starting to put on weight and it seems my back hurts more and more everyday. But like i say this is just the joys of pregancy, right? 

Name: april | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 5:51 PM
the main thing im nervous about the whole doctor thign is @ 11 2 day which idk where your from so about two hours ago i started bleeding kinda like i was starting my period but its not heavy its light thats another thing of why im scared to go to the doctor bc i cant lose this baby if josh my fiance has to be in jail a while i wanted to have some peice of him with me and ive never be pregnant before so i figured my parents would flip bricks but they are happy and with me and the strangest thing is my step-mom ummm well she said if josh is not going to do good that i can do it on my own and she would help me she already said i needed to move close to them bc she said she would baby sit for free so her grandchild wouldnt be going to some person where you really didnt know if it were being taken care of or not so thats a releif i could work and she would watch my baby she already watches my 4 month old nephew and so yea i really want my baby right now im just scared of what the doctor might say that and im affraid of neddles lol josh laughed at me and said he was sorry he couldnt be withme but i would have to soooo now i really am i only have liek 30 more mins before im leaving but i havent got any work done bc of this im so worried so yeah i think this one is really long lol sry ttus 

Name: Kortney | Date: Nov 10th, 2005 6:16 PM

Hi April that's great news, yeah that definetly sounds like your gonna have a big baby. Take good care of yourself and that baby. I'm kinda sick today and my head won't stop pounding.
How are you doing today? 

Name: april | Date: Nov 14th, 2005 3:19 PM
im fine but the more and more i read on threatened miscarriages it worries me i heard its heart beat lol it was really diff but super fast and loud so i think everything will be fime i will keep saying i just wanna go to the doctor to find out for sure but the flip side of things josh got a probation hold on sat so hes not gettin out his child will probably be around 8 months to a yr old before he ever gets to see him/her face to face w/o glass between them so that worrys me but ive picked 3 names boy and girl since i dont know what it is yet i love the girl names which are Zoe Lachelle bc my middle name is michelle lol or Zoe Emma and if its a boy i like Joshua Blaze but my step mom doesnt like blaze bc i named my dog blaze bc i loved the name and thought of my dog as my child but since im having a baby i would want its name to be blaze if its a boy but i really want a girl i think bc i love those names but ttus and btw do you know anyone or know anything about the doctor telling them they are having a threatened miscarriage??? but ya ill let you go and i hope you feel better soon i havent really been all that sick so idk what to think 

Name: Kortney | Date: Nov 14th, 2005 3:28 PM
Wow those are some great names i really like Blaze for a middle name. That's good you haven't really gotten sick yet.
I have a girlfriend who was told she might have a miscarriage b/c heart rate was so low. But she carried full term and now has a beautiful little boy. I'm sorry Josh won't see your child face to face for awhile but i'm here for you sweetie so stay strong honey. 

Name: april | Date: Nov 14th, 2005 3:42 PM
ty yes josh really knows now that he messed up so yea and what you said about your friend helps gr8ly the doctor said that me and the baby were perfectly healthy though and the baby heart beat was really strong he was shocked lol bc im not that far and it wasnt hard at all to get the heart beat but i guess i am going to be a mom i have the worries already lol i just want it to be healthy wether its a boy or girl so yea i got pictures to and i showed them to my coworker lol she was like wow you can tell its a baby and not a dot lol but yes i also agree that i think it will be a rather big/long baby so lol by the time its about 8 it should be taller than me lol aint that crazy i think its funny but bye 

Name: Kortney | Date: Nov 14th, 2005 3:49 PM
