Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Over the last week I have been really nauseated and fruity smells make me sick, my back has been hurting me very badly and is stiff in the lower areas, I am very tired most of the time. Also, my stomach is beginning to become tighter in the lower area and I've been having sharp pains like severe cramps. Can any one help me or explain why I am having these symptoms?

even though this is true and somewhat funny.. u should be trying to help these ladies out, not criticize them. some ppl just arent educated on pregnancy and contraception enough. being scared can make u paranoid and unsure..

Take a OTC test, this will either put your mind at ease if you don't want to be pregnant, our hormones can make us crazy or if you are pregnant then you can start taking vitamins and take care of the little life inside of you. Good Luck!

You'll need to wait until your next expected period so that you can take a pregnancy test. Mild cramping is normal when a fallopian tube releases an egg and your "weird" feeling could just be you having your hopes up. Just be patient and wait until you can take a test. That's the only way to know whether or not you're pregnant.

First of all, if you're a smoker and are wanting to get pregnant, you need to quit. For good. Immeditately. Before you get pregnant. Smoking during pregnancy can cause a lot of health problems for your baby. Exposure to second-hand smoke and smoke residues left on clothes can also cause health problems for children. If you want to bring a child into the world, you need to be responsible and do what's best.Now, as to whether or not you are pregnant, take a pregnancy test. That's the only way to know. But, since you were on depo for so long, there's a good chance you aren't pregnant yet. It can take up to a year, and sometimes longer, for a woman's cycle to get back to normal after being on depo. (For the record, the depo probably wasn't the cause of your weight gain. Studies have shown that hormonal birth control really doesn't cause weight gain.) It has long lasting effects, and as your hormones get back to their normal states you can experience a lot of different symptoms, many of which are experienced during pregnancy. So take a test, or see your doctor for a blood test.
