I wasn't sure if this was the best place to post this or not, if not then sorry! I've been feeling really ill lately. Monday I was throwing up all day and all this week I've been nauseous and not very hungry. Plus I've been having some diahrrea. Someone asked if I could be pregnant. But when having intercourse with my spouse we use condoms. They haven't broken or fallen off. And I'm still not due for my next period yet. Could I be pregnant? Or is the constant nausea just stress and/or the flu (being sick). I'm not ready to get pregnant yet so hopefully not but I thought maybe someone could tell. Thanks!

When is your period due? I would try not to worry until you test. I believe First Response can give you results a day or two prior to missing your period. Good Luck and Welcome to JM!

First of all welcome to JM. I'm Jennifer, the host of this board.

Did you use condoms 100% of the time? If so and you didnt have any slip ups then the chances of you being pregnant are very low. I wouldnt worry about it until its time for your period to get here. Good luck.

Hi,

I agree with all of the above and would like to add it is possible. It would depend on if you were ovulating and semen was introduced near the vagina prior to use of the condom. Stress often mimics symptoms of pregnancy and being unexpectedly pregnant causes stress (kind of circular). Try not to worry which is easier said than done.

Take gentle care,
Margaret

Id take a pregnancy test just to make sure! If you use condoms/protection, I dont know how it COULD happen. But it does say they arent 100% accurate.

Hi, I am new to the forum. I think that I might possibly be expecting but I am not completely sure. Here are a few things to consider.

I missed a couple days of my pills and then didn't get my "expected" period.

A few days after my missed pills, I had a couple days of bleeding but very light.

I started my next month because this has happened before and been something the pill did to my body when I messed up my cycle.

I talked to my sister who has had four children and one grandson and she thinks it is a very good possibility that I am expecting.....and she got pregnate while on the pill for every one of her children.

My husband is adamant about not buying a preganacy test right now because we are not sure if my missed period was a fluke. He doesn't think we have anything to worry about. He wants to wait and see if I get my period next month.

I have experienced some early signs of pregnacy such as: frequent urinating, tender breasts, and a few others.

I am so excited and scared at the same time. I have just recently given up my current job and we are moving and don't have jobs lined up yet. We will be living with my in-laws. This isn't the perfect time in our life for an unplanned preganacy, but God works in mysterious ways. He knows why...if I am. And it will be a miricle....and something to make me a very happy woman. I've wanted to be a mommy for a few years now.

Sorry, I just needed to vent. I want to know so badly, but we are down to one car and I have no way to get a test or take a test without asking him to drive me (because I can't drive his car). FUN!

Christina

Wow... Sounds like you're going to have a tough time testing. I will tell you one thing. If you ARE pregnant, then you shouldn't continue taking birth control. It says that right on the package of birth control. You HAVE to find out if you are pregnant or not. Do you have a close relative or friend that you could go somewhere with and get a pregnancy test and take it? The last thing you want to do is go on waiting and not knowing if you are or aren't and still take birth control. Why does your husband not want you to take a test? Doesn't he want to know? I don't understand why he would be so adamant about you NOT taking the test! If anything, if he really doesn't want a kid right now, then it would make more sense for him to be adamant about having you TAKE one. Can you tell him that you have a OB appointment for an annual? Will he want to go in with you? The first thing I would do is make him understand that you NEED to know. You can't go on being stressed out and worried about whether or not you're pregnant. You really should find out, one way or another.

Of course, that's just my humble opinion.

No I can't go anywhere with anyone, because the only people I have told do not live in the same state as I am. Currently my husband and I are down to one car and I can't drive his.

Its not that he doesn't want a child right now, he is just sure that I am not. He doesn't think a test is necessary because he says we didn't do anything around that time period to cause it. I guess from what he says we aren't...but I don't remember.

I have been going through a lot the last month or so and the stress might have gotten to me and caused my period to go haywire. It is possible.

I have to make my yearly check up next month. I am going to see how things go and get through the Holiday and the last days at my job. I will think about taking or not taking the pill, and see if my period comes late.

We will see how things go. I will keep you all updated, but who knows.

Christina

I probally won't post again for most of a week to 2 or 3 weeks because we are packing and moving. Thanks for the help.

Hello all!

A little update...

I quit taking my pill at the end of last week sometime and this evening we are going to go to get a test and will be taking it tonight. I will let you know the outcome at the end.

If it comes up positive, I hope I can get a lot of advice from you all to help me through this. I am not sure how mine and my husbands family will take the news.
If it comes up negative, we will go back to our original plan and go back on the pill.

I hope no one minds if I lurke around and occassionally post even though I am not yet a "mommy" in every sence of the word. If our plan works out, we want to start our family in 2007.

So wish me luck. Right now, I am not sure which outcome I want. I guess, just to know.

Christina

Hello Christina!! No one minds if you lurke!! And if you are pregnant, we will be here to support you anyway that we can, because that's what this board is for!

So how did you guys reach that decision to test? Did you talk to your husband and make him realize that you need to find out? Well, either way, I'm glad that you guys decided to test.

I know it can be confusing right now. You don't know if you want to have a baby or not just yet, but when you get the results, just let us know! And I hope the outcome that you get is what you wanted! Only time can tell!

Good luck and keep us updated!

Okay...last update on this topic for now.

I told my husband that I would feel so much better if I tested and knew for sure. I took the test and it came out negative.

I was very upset in the end because I had gotten my hopes up and decided that it was really what I wanted....even though right now we can't afford it. But all through that I knew that we couldn't.

Anyways, I can't be upset and depressed over something that never was forever. Right now we are just going to go back to what we were doing and our plan. Sometime in the end of 2006 or early 2007, we will then be TTC our first child.

For now though, I will keep visiting JM frequently to see how everyone is doing. Good luck to everyone. I hope you all have happy and healthy babies!!!!!

Christina
