Its about a week before im supposed to get my period, but for the past week or so i have been seeing more and more signs im preg (im going to wait until my period is "late" before i take a pregnancy test).. i just want some other opinions on this. Here is what has been happening to me that has changed from my normal behavior:
1. Im nauseous most of the time (mainly in the car or mornings and nights) and its pretty bad too, not just like car sick
2. I have to pee all the time!!
3. My boobs are sore
4. Im constantly hungry
5. I have cramps and headaches throughout the day
6. I was having weird blood spotting for awhile
7. I cry every night over little things that happened during the day that a few weeks ago wouldnt have bothered me one bit
The possibility that im pregnant is great since me and my bf have sex regularly... I didnt really start noticing the symptoms until a friend of mine who is currently pregnant pointed out how her pregnancy started.
The reason im not going to take a pregnancy test now is because usually i get my period right after i take it so i will just wait until after i missed my period...
Im not scared, i just want to hear opinions... Thank you! [Smile]

Well, first let me start by saying that if you haven't yet had a late period, it's FAR to soon to be experiencing any symptoms of pregnancy. Any you are experiencing are likely psychosomatic (created or amplified by having in your mind that you could be pregnant).

Secondly, honey, you asked for opinions, and I simply must put in my two cents. This is obviously something you're planning for if you've had unprotected sex for a few cycles and are "not scared" of the possibility of getting pregnant.

While I won't lecture you about this choice, I'm asking you to please think hard about it. Because of your posting history, it really seems this guy isn't much in the way of parenting material; you said he still does drugs and acts like a kid himself. As Miz Scarlet said before, if he refuses to give it up BEFORE you get pregnant, it's very unlikely he will once a baby's in the picture; especially with the added stress.

So, I'm really asking you to reconsider what you're doing. If you get pregnant any time as a teen girl, there's an overwhelming chance that you'll end up parenting alone. Your current situation increases those chances. Are you prepared to do that?
