could i be pregnant?

I had my tubes tied 9 yrs ago. I'm 3 weeks late, which has never happened. Feeling sick for 3 weeks off and on and my lower backs hurts and bloated and can't get rid of this butterfly in my belly. Feeling really moody all the time and want to cry over dumb stuff. What you all of you think. Could i be?

7 weeks 5 days

I am pregnant with my first child. I feel horrible. I am constantly extremely nauseous, but not throwing up. My breasts are sore and I am an emotional disaster. I am having some crazy nightmares about twins, and the baby furniture that keep me tossing and turning all night. I feel extremely sick in the morning, and extremely tired. I told my family at 6 weeks and they are not supportive. My beautiful baby is all I need, once this horrible first trimester is over it'll be ok.

I'm praying that when it's time for me to take the test it comes back positive, but I wont know for a few more weeks. It's only been a few days since my boyfriend and I made our attempt to get pregnant, and I already feel crampy, bloated and i have a loss of appetite. I'm scared to take the test though, because I'm going to be devastated if it comes back negative. I'm so anxious and I just want these next few weeks to go by fast so I can find out for sure!

Last week had sex for the first time, mostly today had a severe pain in my stomach and feel bloated already.. Had many dreams of being pregnant and having a baby .. Feel sick but not thrown up.. Bad headache .. Bit of a temperature and such bad back pains.. Am i pregnant? I really hope i am going to take my test after if i miss my next period coming. Excited!
—Guest Sian

scared surprisingly ..hopeful?

I can relate to Dominique. I missed my period by about a week now. I just went back through my womens app & read last month I only had a faint period of two days. Two days ago I started to feel dizzy. I threw up once. I'm still getting dizzy spells, feeling like I might get sick but don't. Slight cramping frequent urination and an odd feeling in my stomach.very hard to describe. I thought it was gas. Tickles. I'm so tired. I bought a test. I'm terrified. I've always been terrified to get pregnant. But today I stood in a line and watched a mother w her new baby.. I looked down at my test and smiled. Hopeful.

Wondering if I'm pregnant

I've been feeling extremely sleepy all the time and My tummy feels heavy. My last period was on the 13th of July. On the 23rd I had some bleeding it went from brown to red Nd then brown again. My period is a day late. Been also cramping as if my periods coming with back pains. I don't know if I'm pregnant. I took 2 tests and they both we're negative. Still wondering.
