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.

Could I be psyching myself out or am I pregnant?

Although my boyfriend and I aren't actively TTC, it wouldn't be a bad thing either way but lately I've just had a funny feeling (not the "I feel pregnant feeling" though.) I have been on the pill for about 2 years now but I know that that's not always 100% effective. I take it everynight at the same time within an hour or so sometimes and if I do miss it (rarely) I take it as soon as I remember. For the past 2 weeks I've had the "funny feeling", very tender nipples, my sense of smell has majorly changed (I love Pepsi but I can't even stand the smell of an empty can that is sitting beside me,) I'm up 3-6 times a night to pee and have the worst time getting comfortable/back to sleep after that and although this might be TMI, I go a couple of days where I'm basically constipated and then a couple of days where I have diarrhea and then the cycle starts again. AF is due on the 21 (tomorrow) and I just can't wait, I'm driving myself nuts!

Go ahead and take a pregnancy test. But, if your birth control has been working for two years, I doubt you have gotten pregnant while on it unless you have missed several days in a row. By this point, the hormones in the pills have fully regulated your cycle and you should not be ovulating at all. Take a test, but chances are good that you're psyching yourself out. (I've done it a few times.)

Just take a test, if it's positive stop taking the birth control and congratulations I guess!
