I don't know

Hey my period comes regularly and this month it is late. I've been feeling crampy as if it was like any other month before my period. I'm still waiting and yet seen nothing. This would b my first pregnancy if so.

I didn't know

I didn't know about my first pregnancy 15 years ago dew regular periods, but felt sick from some food, tired, moody. My periods where in time but less each month. Went to see doctor for checkup and ultrasound shows healthy baby 9 weeks. Total surprise !!!! With my second baby 2 years ago I knew 4 days before my period because I did have unusual craving for salty fish and after I felt sick, test show positive! Both healthy girls:)

—Guest nancy


For those of u wondering if u are pregnant, here is my story. For about a year I tried and tried to get pregnant and had NO luck. Until one day I did a lot of research online and read that the best time to try to conceive is when u are ovulating. I went to pee one day, wiped off, and seen some cervical mucus on the toilet paper; so I knew I was ovulating that day. It was August 10th. I made sure to have sex that day l0l. I have my periods every month around the 20th-25th. Well, up until the 25th, I had very little symptoms. I only puked once, but I was already craving pickles and lemons. The 25th came and I still didn't have a period. I took a pregnancy test and it was POSITIVE!! Ovulation day is the key!!! Good luck everyone I hope my advice will help for those of u trying to concieve!!

—Guest nomosa


Well i have had un protected sex like 2.5 weeks ago, and expecting my period in the next week or so. I am scared like crap cause its 9 months before my wedding. I am engages but like we have all these plans and the dress oh gosh the expensive dress.. For the past week I have been so nauseous, throwing up after work( cause I work night shifts), my feet hurt, back hurts, craving food like ice cream, and not being able to stand certain foods, like peanut butter, eggs, BBQ sauce. My breasts are tender, they hurt to itch, but they are not overly sensitive just hurts :(
