Too Soon?

I'm not entirely sure. I had been taking vitamins w/ folic acid for a few months while my husband was away in the army. We've been together for almost 5 years and since we've been married he has been vocal about his desire for children.

So, I finally decided, of course! After our 1st unprotected sex, a few weeks later I had my period. Now, after a three or so weeks of trying, I have had nonstop sore breasts. With the whole, taking a bra off and pain...and laying on my stomach isn't an option. Odd feelings in my abdomen, and lots of bloating.

I'm not sure. But from what I read on here. I should take a test!


I got sick!

I figured I was pregnant when I started throwing up everything I ate, dranked, or thought was edible. Also my mother-in-law told me that she had a dream about a baby, and rest assure when I took those six pregnancy tests it said I was pregnant, but I still couldn't believe it. I went to the doctor and took a test and she told me I was pregnant and even then I still couldn't believe it.

But then I had my first ultrasound and there was my little bundle of joy (sounds a bit cliche, lol) moving around on the screen, and that was when I finally believed that I was pregnant.


I'm Puzzled ... Pregnant?

Well, I don't know if I'm pregnant or not and its been bothering me. I have irregular periods that are always changing. So it's hard to really know for sure if I'm gonna have a missed period or it's just coming a little later.

I'm suppose to start next week but I am still unsure. I've been experiencing some symptoms like ... extreme tiredness, sore nipples and breasts, fuller breasts, mild little cramps. I've notice that I'll eat, but shortly after I'm still hungry. Also, I'm constipated and there are some smells I can't stand or foods that don't appeal to me but normally would. I don't pee a lot but at times its more than once within a half an hour or hour. But I don't know if it was because of what I'm drinking ... tea.

I've also noticed that my body feels hot to the touch. When I wake up I don't feel so good so I just lie there or end up falling back to sleep until I do feel better to get up. I'm a bit moody.

So, these are some possible symptoms that I have. But I don't know if I'm just premenstrual or pregnant. It's hard to tell. Very confusing.

My boyfriend and I want a baby. We don't use protection. We've tried a few times and nothing. So I don't know if this is it! I don't want to disappoint him again but also I'm very scared too. I hope I find out soon. But now all I can do is wait.


I Don't Know if I Am Pregnant or Not

I don't know if I am pregnant or not. I just turned 17 on July 18 and my boyfriend's condom broke at the tip. I have no idea if I am pregnant or not.

But, I have been feeling pretty weird lately. My stomach has been cramping and I feel nauseous and tired a lot. I get pretty dizzy when I suck in to... I try to see if there is anything out of the ordinary since I don't know if I am pregnant or not. I haven't experienced this ever. When I press on my stomach to see if I can feel anything it feels uncomfortable and everything.


How Not to Feel Stressed by all this?

My husband and I want to have a son. We have been married 5 years, and together have 10 children from our previous marriage to others.

I have a tubal ligation, and so I have been undergoing IVF treatments for ovulation stimulation. Since I am pre-menopausal, my ovaries are having a difficult time producing more than 1 egg, even though many injections and hormones. To learn at the end of the process of hormones and shots that my estrogen levels are not up, and to face another cycle of waiting is so difficult.

Our doctor said it is very important to not stress out. I realize that stress is the opposite of "bliss," which is the heightened result of love and thus conception. How does one achieve bliss in our stressful culture? Worklife can be anxiety-filled and time at home can be too crammed with schedules and commitments. Where is the time for bliss? How can we edge stress out of our lives?
