My friend recently found out that she's more than likely two months pregnant. I wouldn't have been able to tell if she hadn't told me. She doesn't any kind of baby bump.

I think I'm riding on her pregnancy and making it my scare, but...I'm scared. What are really early signs of pregnancy? I haven't had a period in two months, which is explainable by my Loestrin24Fe birth control, but still. Last month I didn't even really have any PMS...my breasts may've gotten larger, but there were no cramps or back pain like I'm used to.

I'm perfect with my birth control. Taken every day at the same exact time, within minutes. The latest I've ever taken it past my usual time of 12:20pm is an hour before or after. My boyfriend and I have sexual intercourse once or twice a day most days and don't use condoms.

Here are some things I've been going through lately:
-Random bouts of nausea, from mild to feeling as if I'll throw up (but I never do) this happens throughout the whole day, not just a morning thing (This could be my GERD, but it's not usually this bad).
-Random fevers. I thought this was just because of an upper respiratory infection, but the coughing has more or less gone away and I feel feverish once or twice a day, also ranging from mild to having the room spin
-Some stomach and back pain.
-Maybe some weight gain?? But I had spring break last week and my mom tried her best to fatten me up (I've always been under weight and living at college has just made me lose more)
-Random head aches

I know these can all be explained by other things, but, like I said, I'm riding off my friend's pregnancy and getting scared. She's getting disposable tests tomorrow with her ex and I asked her to pick one up for me too. But I'm scared of taking it. What are the chances it's positive? And I don't know what I'd tell my boyfriend...his last girlfriend was insane about pregnancy scares--bought tests behind his back after every time they had intercourse, going to Planned Parenthood to get Plan B behind his back. And she did this when they used birth control, condoms, and spermicidal lube. I don't want to turn into that. Help? [Frown]

Nobody has a baby bump at two months. That's way too early.

Before we talk about this, can you check in with two links which really should take care of this for you?

They are:
