HELP! Am I pregnant? (very detailed, and long)?
I’m going to try and be as specific as possible, but I am new to this.. I am 17 years old, and my boyfriend is 18. My dad loves him, but my mom is really overprotective over me and my older sisters’ sex lives. (She doesn’t even know I have a sex life, I’m sure.) I smoke cigarettes, and weed. I barely ever drink. Anyways, my last period was either January 12th, or the 19th, I don’t remember but I know it started on one of those days. Me and my boyfriend had sex on January 28th. We used a condom, but it broke and somehow we didn’t notice until he finished. Neither of us got paid until the next week, so we couldn’t get the morning-after pill. We went on an ovulation calculator and it said January 27, 2011-February 1, 2011 are my most fertile days. Week after week went by, and we got more and more scared. I’ve always been really into the sexual education in school, and pregnancy in general. I tried to keep my mind off of it knowing that thinking I am, would cause stress and could make me late. I have symptoms such as: nausea, lower back pains, headaches, body aches, MOOD SWINGS, abdominal pain, gas, constipation, and more discharge than usual. I have never been bloated before, or have had a cramp anywhere in my body ever and now I do. I started eating a lot more than usual, and gained more and more. On January 31st I weighed 108, then on the February 11th I was at 115, then on the 23rd I was 119.5 and haven’t weighed myself since. I feel so big, and so gross. My abdomen feels firm to me, but not more than usual to my boyfriend. I went over my boyfriend’s house for the day last weekend and he was rubbing my belly randomly. He didn’t even notice why he was doing it. He even said more than once “What am I doing?” and stopped. So I’m wondering do guys sense that kind of stuff? I’m always feeling uncomfortable, and I’ve noticed that when I pee (which is more than usual) it’s like I have a UTI without the burning. Meaning, I feel like I have to pee, but when I go barely anything comes out. I’ve taken 3 tests, all saying negative so I just figured there’s no way I could be. I haven’t slept, or eaten in 5 days. I don’t feel tired, and when I try to sleep I just lay there for hours on end. And when I try to eat something light, just to have something in my system, I feel sick to my stomach. On February 27th, yesterday, 1-2 ½ weeks late I got this brown discharge at 7 am, and diarrhea. Later through the day, the diarrhea stopped but the ‘period’ turned pinker and pinker. It’s lighter than a normal period for me, but not like spotting.. I still have all these symptoms, so I’m just confused. I looked it up, and found out it could be miscarriage symptoms and got really upset. Can someone PLEASE help me, or try to tell me what’s going on? I don’t have a doctor. But even if I did I couldn’t go without my mom, being a minor. I’m really not wanting to tell her this, we’re not the closest and I don’t want her getting mad at my boyfriend. I’ll obviously have to tell her if I am, but I don’t want to tell her I might be, and not be. I’d rather not read comments about how young I am, and how I should tell my mom, and whatever unhelpful things you guys can come up with.. I really just need help. I’m scared, and feel alone.
I forgot to add in that a couple hours ago, I went to take a bath and I had very prominent veins in my boobs.. My boobs aren’t very sore, but they are sensitive. And just in the past hour I’ve gotten a runny/stuffy nose, and a sore. Which is a contraindication I know..but it’s like so stuffy I can’t breath, but then so runny that I’m constantly wiping it.

If you are pregnant, you would be just now experiencing symptoms. Your stomach shouldn’t be hard though, you are just gaining weight because your baby is so tiny. (http://blisstree.com/files/631/2008/05/4weeks-nc.jpg)
the first thing people noticed about me when I first became pregnant was my boobs. They were gigantic, & soooo sensitive! It sounds like you had spotting, honestly…Implantation bleeding. (Your embryo attaching to the wall of your uterus.) If you need to talk, please – email me. Kelseyrjslovesyou@yahoo.com I’m 17 & although I know I don’t have it all together, I’d like to think I do, & I have a 7 month old. I wish I could just hug you right now, I know how you feel in its entirety. As soon as you find out, though, you need to tell your mom so you can get to a doctor & get some prenatal vitamins (which do awesome things for your nails, skin & hair!) to help your little one.
I’m kind of hoping you aren’t, because your life will NEVER be the same again, but if you are…Enjoy the ride!
Here’s a little back ground on my situation —
My last period (7-13/7-17) was the first period since a miscarriage in June. My cycles used to be 32 days w/ 18 day luteal phase. but since I had the miscarriage I wasn’t sure if they would be the same. So I went to an OV calculator I told them I had a 32 day cycle and they gave me OV dates of 29-31.
Taking ovulation tests gave me 28-1st so they are pretty much the same so I expected my period after the 32 day mark well I didn’t get another period until day 40. Which was weird. since I ovulated kinda early.
So my next period was 8-22/8-27
And my question is should I expect ovulation around the schedule of a 32 day cycle or ovulation on a schedule of a 40 day cycle?
I am charting but this is my first month so I want to know when to plan intercourse hopefully we get it!
Thanks && Good luck to all TTC
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
Honestly, you don’t have a “normal schedule/cycle” right now because of the miscarriage so there is no way to tell. The best thing for you to do is use opk’s and in combination with charting you will be able to pinpoint ovulation. There is still no telling how long you can expect your luteal phase to be. Opk’s will give you the heads up that ovulation “should” be coming, and by temping, if you get a big spike within a few days of the +opk, then you KNOW you ovulated for sure. It’s a win win as far as I’m concerned. It took 3 months for my cycles to regulate after my miscarriage in March, so by charting for sure, you will have a more clear picture and see it start to fall back in line!!
TTC question about cycle.?
This may sound like an odd question but after having a miscarriage in June of 08 my periods have been a mess!! Before the miscarriage they were 33 day cycles. After they ranged anywhere from 40-35. Well This last cycle my period started February 16th and ended on the 19th. On Cycle day 11(Feb 26) I noticed EWCM and then I started my period today. SO my cycle was 32 days.
Does this sound like a normal cycle? I didn’t use ovulation test so I cant pinpoint ovulation but since this was the only time through the month I got EWCM I am saying ovulation was around those few days.
I asked a question before saying my period came on so and so day and that a ovulation test showed positive 12 days later and then my period came 20 some days later and I got told that “wasn’t possible” but this is how its always been. Even when I got pregnant I had my period 11-13 days later I ovulated and 20-some days later my period came until the month I was pregnant.
Does the cycle I had sound normal?
Ovulation calculators always assume that I will ovulate way later then ovulation tests tell me. And then my period comes usually around the time the calculators say. Is that a normal thing?
I think the second answers first answer sounds like what it may be my luteal phase has always been 20-some days but I have gotten pregnant before with this same luteal phase.
My OBGYN sees nothing wrong with it so I guess this is okay?
Thanks thats was some help!
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
I’m not sure I entirely understand your question, but I’ll try. It sounds like you usually have longer cycles, but that you think you ovulate really early into the cycle based on EWCM and OPKs(?). I have a couple of guesses, but they are based on not really having all of the info, so bear with me.
First, you may just have a really long luteal (post-ovulation) phase. The calculators are based on an average of 12-16 days, but if yours are typically 18-20 days, then the calculators are going to have your ovulation date later than it actually is. Long luteal phases are not common- 18 days is the longest that I’ve heard and I’m not sure if it causes problems if it’s longer than that.
Second, your body may have trouble ovulating and although it tries early in the cycle (hence the positive OPKs and EWCM), it may not actually ovulate at that time. Seeing positive OPKs and EWCM doesn’t guarantee that you ovulate at that time. That may account for why you see ovulation signs early, but have such a long cycle (your body may start trying ovulating around day 11, but not actually do it until CD 18). This is VERY common in women who have irregular cycles and in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It also could be the reason that you are having difficulties getting pregnant- you don’t ovulate when you think you do and end up missing your window).
I don’t know which guess is correct. The only way to know for sure is by tracking basal body temps. That way, you will actually see when ovulation occurs and see how it matches up with your other ovulation signs. Try www.fertilityfriend.com . They have a free online BBT course and you can put in your temps and it will determine ovulation for you. Also, you could ask your doctor to do a 21-day progesterone test to confirm that you are actually ovulating early in your cycle.
I hope this helps a little. Best of luck to you and lots of baby dust!!!
ADDED: I have not heard that long luteal phases are bad. I’ve actually heard they are good because it gives the egg a long time to implant. Hopefully it’s true. I hope you get your BFP soon!
Hopeful pregnant, but unsure….pts best answer ty?
My dilemma….I’m 25, just married my husband on our 8 yr anniversary, we don’t have any children, have had 1 miscarriage with him 7 yrs ago. I have my period approximately every 35 days (5 weeks from 1st day of last period). They last for 7 days everytime. The 1st 2 days I have to wear the overnight pads since they suppossibly are considered heavy. The rest I fill 1 pad a day. My last period came at 46 days (1 week & 4 days late) & only last for 3 days. This period I would consider it spotting, I only had to wear a total of 2 pantiliners (didn’t fill completely up either). I always have severe cramping. I was diagnosed with a fibroid tumor when I was 18 & the doctor said that everytime I have a period my body thinks I’m going into labor & trying to push the tumor out (labor contractions he called it). This period I had absolutely no cramps (loved it, loved the whole thing). I was ovulating the (5 days after our wedding) April 10th (didn’t realized, found out from ovulation calculator) & that’s when he finished inside finally after so many yrs lol. Anyways a week later I started feeling sick everytime I swallowed, mood swings (not normal type), & extremely tired. I was literally laying in bed all day. For 2 weeks I was so confused, I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I finally started suspecting pregnancy, but didn’t mention anything to my husband (or anyone) until May 1st, within 2 hrs I went to the bathroom, wiped, seen a little red line, but a pantiliner on, but that was it, didn’t have anything on the liner. I thought that was it, until 3 days later (May 4th) I started. I have never had any of this happen to me so I’m so confused. I haven’t got a preg test bc through out all the yrs everytime I did they’ve came out neg & within a week someone else ended up preg. So I’m afraid it’s just going to be the same thing. Disappointment for me but happiness I’ll feel for someone else. At 1st for the nausea I would have to take vitC orange flavored tablets to help somewhat, then I started craving pickles (lol I know) but that only worked for less than a week, now it’s bananas & herbal tea. It only soothes it for so long though. I started out feeling nauseous & tired, now I’m feeling slight cramping (which is little more than 2 weeks til my period) just started about 4-5hrs ago, at this moment I’m not anymore, my breast just started feeling sensitive today, I’ve had a full, thick feeling in my uterus for about a month now (forgot to mention). The mood swings are still there also, they seem to be getting worse though. My husband caught me crying during a cartoon (A CARTOON) lol. I hardly ever cry over movies in general. Anyways I know I’ve got the symptoms but I’m just worried that we’ll be wasting money on a neg (my sis-in-law/bestfriend may be pregnant) so I’m thinking either I really am or I’m just getting her sympathy hormones or whatever u call them lol, since I always do. Also, I’m worried that it may not be pregnancy, it may be my fibroid. I’m just wanting advice, before spending money on a test. I appreciate everyones & everyones help. Thank you!
Oh! & my eating has changed also. An example is if I’m able to eat 4 slices of pizza then I can only eat 1. Basically I’m eating about 1/4-1/3 of what I normally can. Smells are affecting me as well. I’m also getting headaches at least once a day. Another thing that helps my stomach is drinking lemonade. Not the kind that’s premade but the kind where u add the ReaLemon juice, sugar, & water. I’m being more antisocial too. I only want to talk at certain times. At times I can’t talk bc I feel everytime I open my mouth then I’m going to get sick. I haven’t gotten sick yet though. I have had some come up but go back down & that’s happened for about 5 weeks now. If I think of anything else then I’ll add it. If u have any questions then I will answer them so be sure to look back. Thanks again & sorry for being so long. I’m just lost
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
Uh…all signs point to PREGNANCY! I have had one miscarriage and after that I got pregnant with my now 3 year old daughter. Especially when you mentioned your breast tenderness. Your breasts get VERY tender and full. I am like 98% sure that you got a baby in the “oven”. When I was pregnant I always ate those little chocolate doughnuts WITH pickles….yuck! Anyways, hope this helps! If I were you I would buy a test! Also when I took my first test it was negative…but 3 days later I went to the doctor and they did a test and I was 8 weeks along, so tests CAN be wrong!
Period 1 month late . Negative HPT w/ pregnancy symptoms!!!! HELP ME PLEASE?
Okay i really hope i’m not the only 1 going through this. I have a obgyn appointment monday, and Im really pulling my hair out about this I need to know if i should bump my appointment up sooner:
In some months I can predict my period & in other months my period is extremely unpredictable.
In November 2008 I became pregnant YAY but unfortunately I suffered from a miscarriage. Dec 2008 I had a 5 day period & Dec 26 2008 My period started again which never happened before. & Ended Jan 31st in the am. Me & My BF of 3 1/2 years had intercourse celebrating the New Year together & I had slight barely there bleeding which stopped after a hot shower. January 2nd 2009 My period started again!! This time it stopped January 9th. I’ve calculated every possible length of a period in a ovulation calculator & every 1 possible still gives me an expected period date that already passed of when my next period should be here. During Ovulation time Me & My bf had unprotected sex. A week after I’ve been having tender breast & nipples. This was never a sign I had in preperation of my period. So it started to concern me.
=I’ve been having Sore Nipples & Breast
=For 2 days I felt like I was getting a cold but day 3 any cold like symptom completely GONE.
= Moody, Irritable, & Tired.
= Cramping frequently Not severe just enough to notice they are there.
= Low abdominal pain on Right side & left side. More on Left side.
= Weird feeling in my low abdomin.
= Constipation =(
= Back pain. Sometimes I have to stop & Bend over its so bad.
= Ovulation like light clear discharge.
= No blood at all since January 9th until March 2nd. & it was barely enough to notice it was mostly clear discharge with an tiny bit of blood which looked like barely there spotting
= Negative HPT test so far i only took 1 Feb 28. I may have peed too much on the stick or didn’t hold it correctly because as soon as i looked & the pee absorbed thru the stick it popped up negative in both windows.
im so concerned & kind of scared to go to the dr & learn its something severe. does anyone have any clues as to what this could be
Also if anyone could help The HPT test I used was a CVS + – test
Whats the best HPT test on the market.??
Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:
To be honest with you I hardly look at the symptoms. Just because you will be always guessing.
You need to have a confirmation ASAP so you don’t go nuts, trust me I know, it’s terrible to not know if you are or not pregnant. Try going somewhere like www.plannedparenthood.org and do a blood test. They are completely accurate, they cost around 25.00, you don’t need an appointment and they give you the results the same day. Or do another urine test, the thing about this is that if it comes back negative you still might have doubts.
Best of lucks, sounds like you want it positive so lets keep our fingers cross
