I have never been pregnant before. My boyfriend, of five years, and I have been having sex more often recently and we have always used the "pull- out" method mainly because we are not worried about getting pregnant. The first day of my last period was on July 24th. About a week and a half ago I started feeling strange. More tired than usual, getting break outs, my breasts hurt so bad. The following week I started bleeding, so I assumed that it was my period. But then that blood was just really light pink and very minimal, I only used two panty liners per day and it only lasted three days. Now, I've been experiencing slight nausea here and there, I'm still really tired even though I sleep all night and take naps. Some days my lower back kills me and I can't even walk or lay down. I have no changes in appetite and I've actually lost about three pounds. I'm waiting for my next period to start around the 21st. when I sit I feel fluid dripping from my vagina. I've started reading a lot of stories on early pregnancy and they are pretty similar to my situation, although I have taken two pregnancy tests and they both came out negative. My bf bought the cheap generic brand of HPT and I think that it is 40mUI so I don't trust them and I'm still feeling strange, so I will take another when I am closer to my AF. I get diarrhea and constipation, I'm burping and farting much more frequently than normal.... if these aren't early pregnancy signs then I don't know what is going on with me.

Dont Ever give up

I am 26yrs old and 6wks pregnant ! I had a stillborn in 2008 and have had a horrible 4yrs until I met my bf. We both wanted the same things in life and we didn't care what everyone else thought about us "moving to fast". I did not think after my son that i would ever be able to have another baby or go through with getting pregnant again. But My bf and i literally got pregnant the first time we had sex! It was crazy! Last weekend i thought i just had the flu that everyone else has and so i took meds for days and never got over any of the sickness so my bf said just take a test so i did and it was positive! We both could not be more excited about becoming parents in July 2013!! So Happy ! Please to woman who have had miscarriages and stillborns do not give up ! It will happen I swear!

I just hope i can get through this but my boyfriend and i have high hopes and I knew him when we were kids and now 1 yr and 3 weeks together.


my gift

I am 5 weeks pregnant and I am very excited. I know I'm only 21and this wasn't planned but I am an adult this is all apart of life. I just see it as starting my life.
My boyfriend and I decided to move out together and buy a home I'm just hoping this isn't too much for us finding out I'm pregnant and then decided to buy a home all in one week. It was his idea actually so I'm going with it. We support each other.
He really hopes its a boy but I just have a feeling Its a little girl. I wouldn't care either way but its just a really strong feeling. I will be a good mother and he will be a good father.
I want to always remind my child that she or he was not a mistake and they are here because mommy and daddy love each other so much. I was an "accident" it was always joked about but I don't think my parents realize how it affected me.
Your child is a gift always a gift nothing less then a blessing. I wish everyone luck that is trying to conceive and hope to everyone who has an unplanned pregnancy.
