—Guest Happy


I've been throwing up everything I eat for the past few days. I am not supposed to be able to get pregnant. I've had cold like allergys and my lower stomach is cramping. Everytime i try to eat, I throw up. And if I get it down, I throw up.

fingers crossed

My period is a week late and im tired all da time. I'm 29 and have been trying to fall pregnant for the last 5 years. I have no other symptoms taking a test today. Really praying for a positive result

Maybe Maybe-Not

I'm still sleepy after 9 hours. I'm hungrier than usual, craving grape ice cream, mashed potatoes with salty Mexican cheese that stinks like dirty feet. I can't stand meat though, or oily burnt smell. I've been throwing up morning and evening. My husband and I don't use any contraception, because we were told we couldn't get pregnant if we both are diabetics. It's awful. I hate feeling sick. Could I be pregnant?

10 weeks and a day

I remember the abdominal cramps, it almost felt as though I were due on my period. My mother in law insisted I took a test, I did so the following morning and so be it I am! Now I'm suffering with all day sickness, acid reflux and I feel tired ALL the time. It has not yet been confirmed how far gone I am but going by my last period I'm 10 weeks!
—Guest Casey


I was at the laundry room and I was taking out the clothes and all of a sudden I felt a huge dizzyness and I stopped for a sec I looked around and it was all moving in slow motion. Am I pregnant ? I mean I hope so me and my UFC fighter fiancé have been trying for a long time and I just really hope I am ❤️

nervous !!

My period was a day early, i usually have it for 7 days, but on the 25th of nov. i started, it was light instead of normally being kind of heavy. It went for 4 days light and heavy but was a brownish cokor and stopped during the night and mostly through day 5 and came back till the next morning. 2 days later had light spotting. I had back pains, headaches every day since, feeling nauseous on and off but not throwing up even tho i feel like it sometimes, heavy bloated stomach, very cranky and moody, crying over everything, more hungry and thirsty, have some discharge and constantly burping, farting, have heartburn and sick burps, gum bleeding after brushing me teeth, rare dizzy spells. Supposed to start my period in 2 weeks but i think im pregnant.
