Is There A Human In Me?!

—Guest Nae

Dont panic!!

Okay so its early to feel tired even exhausted, I am almost 17 weeks pregnant and from weeks 8-11 It was a challenge just to go to the local shops, I felt down and tired, the sickness was almost every morning, but this is all normal as your body is going through great changes. I noticed my boobs sore, light headedness and the need to pee alot almost right away around 5 weeks the rest was yet and im sure still is to follow, so hold tight girlie's and good luck! stay strong and reassure yourself you can do it!! because YOU can! x

could I be pregnant??

For a week now I have been waking up drenched in sweat. I feel like puking almost for a week now. My boobies feel a lil sensitive and so do my nipples. I've had dull lower back pain and been really constipated. My period is due in 3 days and I already took a pregnancy test of course to my luck it was negative. Can anyone relate? ??

worry wart

I am 18 years old. Me and my boyfriend have had unprotected sex for about a month. We are usually very careful but on one day that wasn't the case and it was around the time I should be obvulating. I've had bad cramps, gas, headaches, I'm very tired to wear I won't even go to soccer practice, I pee all the time, and I eat but feel as if I'm still not full. My discharge has been a whitish color. Am I pregnant or paranoid?

How did you feel in early pregnancy

I felt different, I didn't feel like myself. My uterus felt weird before I missed my period. Energy levels went down quicker and pee came out frequently! my nipples weren't swollen, but got bigger plus the soreness. Emotions were a little less stable, no implantation bleeding (I got lucky like my mom) no morning sickness either, but there was headaches, nausea and heartburn without eating food sometimes.

7 weeks tomorrow~

Today I have noticed my mood swings being off the chart. (like a period x 10) Cramps, bloating (makes me look slightly pregnant already!) I crave salty foods and when I get near any food whether I'm starving or not, I just can't eat! It's terrible. I used ro eat non stop and all that has came to a hault :( I've lost a pound already maybe even 2.. Still bloated, and even more bloated after I force myself to eat, (yuck!) My spouse seems to have had my symptoms run off on him. It's going by so slow, and they do not have me for my first ultrasound until December 2nd. I hope everything turns out better. This week I've started to feel more nauseous. D: Welp, Hope I helped!
—Guest Sierra
