I am 19 yrs old will be 20 in almost 2 months;here lately I have been stressing a lot. About my significant other and me. I just moved out of my mom's house about a month ago. I live with him. I havent gotten on BC yet and he doesnt wear condoms. Anyways he pulls out of me (which I know isnt 100% safe) And the only times he doesnt pull out is when I am on my period. Well the last period I had was Jan. 30th I ended Feb. 3. He didnt start pulling out again until Feb. 7. I keep kicking myself now for how stupid him and I were, we just recently lost our virginities together. Anyways I cant change the past though. I am posting this because well here lately I have been feeling really emotional, and I have these weird pains they are like cramps but not as bad. And my lower back hurts and I am always tired. Just the other day I woke up at 9 and went right back to sleep at 11 and slept till 5 and went right back to sleep at 9 and woke up at 8 next morning. I never sleep that much. Not to mention that I have this killer headache that wont go away. No matter what I take for it. I am hungry a lot more too. (oh and he said that my discharge *** or what ever it is called [im new to all of the terms] is like darker and it smells different)[not sure if that has anything to do with it] But i knwo its not a kidney infection or anything of the sort because I had that in November and trust me I will never forget those pains lol... But is there a chance I could be pregnant? If my calculations are some what right then I will start anywhere from Feb. 25-March 2. (My AF is never accurate it has a mind of it's own) Is it to soon to have symptoms? My whole stomach just seems messed up. I feel nauseous a lot. Especially in the morning. But please help me. I know how stupid I must sound and I know this is my fault and my responsibility. I dont wanna be yelled at or informed on my stupidity I do it enough to my self here lately. But my guy well is really freaking me out more because when he sees my tummy he says yup thats a pregnant woman's belly. I know we could raise a baby no problem there and I am well sorta ready but he isnt. It would really devastated him so to speak but advice would be nice.... Thank you ohhh and I'm sorry it's so long- I talk to much. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
Hi, just to let you know my husband and I used that method too. We now have a 5 year old to prove it doesn't work!!!! If you are not pregnant, you need to get on BC right away. Or at least make him use condoms if you're not ready to be a mom. Good luck.
yikes! I figured it wouldnt work but to actually have an example. I am really not sure what I feel right now I just want to know if i very well could be if those are some of the signs... Yes I know I plan to get on BC soon... LIke once I find out if I am or not.
I am not saying that you are not pregnant - you very well could be - but it is a bit early yet to be experiencing any symptoms. Is it possible that you have a bit of a flu? As for his observations on your cervical mucous (discharge), it is normal for it to change consistency and scent throughout your cycle. My fiance tells me that especially the week before your period the scent changes quite a bit (he told me this right after we found I was pregnant with our first child together - he said the scent did NOT change, so he really knew I was pregnant even tho it was a few days before my period was expected).
There are some early pregnancy tests you can take. Some women get false negatives with these, but they also work for some.
Also, have you considered a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis? I strongly suggest going to Planned Parenthood. Because when you start birth control pills, you start it during your period, it is better to go BEFORE you expect to start. At the same time, they would be able to check for any infections.
Also, I don't think you could be seeing a "pregnant woman belly" if you are only due to start Feb 25th - March 2nd! You'd only be...2 weeks or so along I do believe, way too early to notice a physical change in your belly. I could be wrong though! Someone else care to comment?
