Possibly Seven Weeks

Hello! I am sixteen years old and have recently made a (series of) very poor decision(s). I am seven weeks late and I have come to terms with the fact that I may very well be pregnant. I did experience a very light bleeding for two days quite early on, which I originally mistook for my period. I do believe that may have been implantation bleeding. I have had very frequent urination since roughly three weeks and my belly does feel slightly larger (could just be from bloating). I've had intense morning sickness three times in the last week and a half but never actually threw up. I am having cravings for calcium-rich and protein-rich foods in particular and I have a lot more gas than usual. Stabbing back pains/cramps a few times... not pleasant. I also have been struggling to keep up with my varsity athletics. Much more fatigued. I plan on taking a test this week so I know for certain. I have a gut feeling I already know the answer though...

pregnant or all in my head?

For two months me and my fiance have been having alot of unprotected sex. And last month i would be bloated all the time , pee like a race horse, and get slight cramps. My period was unusual because its usually a heavy flow. This time it was much much lighter. I had sore boobies and towards the end of the month i would be nauseous but could not throw up. I took two pt's and a big fat negative. This month i've been bloated, headaches, slight cramps, really gassy, my moods will switch in seconds (from happy to angry and back), and my period was light and more of a dark brown then red. Also i pee alot and im not on any bc. Please help ive never been pregnant before and im nervous to test again. Thanks so much. xo.

soooo confused

Last month I ended up missing around 16 ramdom pills. Then at the end of this month I missed five in a row starting saturday through to the white ones. Monday night I had cramps. Then tuesday and until today I have felt nauseous and dizzy and supper tierd. And throughout yhe week having headachs. My period was 2days late and when it came it started oit brown then turned mucousy and loght red then increased flow and bright red. I took three test throight the past weekand all came negative. Could it even be possible I could be pregnant
—Guest molly

Hopeful Mom

If i read all the symptoms of being pregnant, i guess not all of them i'd experience for the past days. I am already 10 days delayed, feel heart burn for a week already, my breast were tender (not that much), had a bloated stomach that i can't even wear my fitted shirts, i pee for a couple of times in a day unlike before. i just hope it will turns out positive, i'll try PT this coming Friday. Wish me luck...

lost my baby

in my pregnancy I was felling slight pain in my hips and I was getting ill a lot I would have very bad cramps and suffer with belly pains after 1 month I lost my baby I was devastated and the pain was terrible but I managed the worst part about it is the emotional side I would get upset about everything through the pregnancy and after
