    Could I be pregnant?

    I just got married about a month ago (June 12th) and me and my husband have been active since. The past week or so, I have been getting nauseous, only thing is, I get nauseous a week, sometimes 2 before my period. My period on the other hand is not regular so I honestly don't know when I am going to get it. Are there other signs that show up early? I am hoping I am not pregnant, financially we are not ready. I don't think I am ready either. lol I have gotten many pregnancy symptoms before and this was prior to my husband and I having sex so its really hard for me to tell! Help!

    it's possible, but there are also other possibilities- such as stress/worry about pregnancy, and reactions to some types of birth control.

      I'm not on birth control and i only thought about it for the last few days. are there other symptoms that happen early? aside from missed period and being sick to your stomach

      not anything I can think of offhand-  but I agree with the person who said to go to a dr.;  that way you'll know what's causing your symptoms.

    I would suggest going to the Dr. and getting to the bottom of it.

    Oh gosh II3-

    A month's worth of unprotected (active) sex?!  Of course you could be pregnant.  Go to the store and get a pregnancy test kit.  Then go to the doctor.  I hope things turn out as you wish.

    Just go and pick up a pregnancy test at the store that's the only way to know for sure. I know exactly what you're going through and I hope everything works out for you. Good luck.

      catch being those home test kits aren't always accurate-
      you can get a false negative or a false positive.

      It's very rare to get a false positive but if you've waited until after you usually get your period more than likely it'll be accurate. They do have about a 99% accuracy rate so it doesn't hurt to try that.

      I will give it another week. My periods are known for disappearing for up to 3 months though. Poor diet in my teen years and stress are to thank! lol

    If you miss your "normal" start time, then get a test. Also symptoms will increase and be there so stay if you really are. Being a women, it's so hard to tell these days!

    My daughter has gotten pregnant twice while using birth control, once with condoms, once while on the pill. You're never really prepared for when it happens but things always seem to work out. I would try a home test first, good luck.

    Hello ii3rittles, congratulations on your marriage!
    Being pregnant isn't a maybe thing.  Either you are or you are not.  One way or the other it is already a fact.  Relax, and be healthy in the meantime.  (I have had so many girlfriends who stressed themselves into late periods).

    I recommend two forms of birth control (or three) before you are ready to have kids!  It seems like a pain, but logically much much easier than having to go through this worry each month.

    Good luck

    I have 5 children and the tell-tale signs for me were an isolated pain in my lower abdomen followed by spotting (fertilized egg implanting into uterine lining), tender breasts, and nausea.  Also, I just kinda had a "knowing" feeling.  If you've got a couple of those symptoms, I'd see a doctor, go to a pregnancy clinic, or get a pregnancy test from the drug store and see if there's a baby on the way.  Also, don't worry about being "ready" for a baby.  You will never be ready.  There is always something that could be better.  You could always have more money.  The timing could always be more ideal.  A baby is a blessing, so if you are indeed pregnant, rest assured that it will be a great experience and that whatever you need is out there somewhere for you.

      Thank you for the reassurance.  I don't have the feeling I am, but the thought.

    The best way to handle this situation is to wait it out until the end of the month if you never have your period at all go get a test and see. I have the same problem and I finally just started waiting it out and eventually it starts. However, there really is never going to be a good time to get pregnant there will always be bills and there will always be something going on in your life. I do applaud you on admitting though that you aren't ready for too many couples jump right in and say everything will be fine and then it isn't. Congrats on your marriage and good luck.

    I get the symptoms ALL the time. I guess my period symptoms are the same as pregnancy. (Lame, and scary!) But I guess that is the risk you take for being sexually active. Congrats on the marriage! Everyone usually says that one of the major first signs are really tender breasts. And I hate this answer, but it is true, the only way to know is to get a test.

      Thats the one symptom I don't have which makes me think I am not. I usually get tender breasts 2 to 4 days before my period but haven't yet. And thank you!
