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.
 

Am I pregnant? What should I do?

0 answers
I'm 14 years old. Over the summer of 2014 I lost my virginity and it was a huge mistake! I wish I could've waited. However, 5 months later, I've been feeling different. I've been nauseous (I keep saying its food poisoning), I frequently get headaches, my back aches a bit, I get tired easily, I've gained about 10 pounds (I don't eat more than my calorie intake and I run at LEAST 2 times a week), I urinate frequently, I get cramps a lot, and my period hasn't came this month. After I had sex (in the summer) I started bleeding. It was like a period kind of bleeding. Because of that I thought to myself that I wasn't pregnant. My periods come every 2 - 3 weeks. I kept getting them but they weren't bleeding ALOT just like for 2 days (this isn't normal for me), but I didn't think anything of it. My period is not 2 weeks late. I'm still waiting for it to come. I'm in no position to raise a child. My mother was an alcoholic, however it subsided. She drinks about once every 2 weeks and she is getting a new job soon. I could probably buy almost everything the baby would need but I also have school and goals in life. I have not taken a pregnancy test. I've told my mom already that I'm late and she said that she'll always love me no matter what. What should I do?
