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.

How far along am I?

1 answers
Hi! My husband and I have three children (4 to 8) and we just found out yesterday that I'm pregnant! We weren't planning to be again, but we welcome the surprise. :) My doctors office has a two week policy from the time you call for the first prenatal check. boo! So I was wondering if any of you would know the answer to this: I was on the shot a few years back for about a year and a half and ever since then my periods have been out of whack. For about a year they were every 30-36 days, then all the sudden it has been 8 weeks between periods! So my last period started Jan 7th... but if I based it off that I would be like 9 weeks along! Could that be right?! I certainly don't feel that pregnant. I remember with the first three feeling pregnant by 9 weeks and I just don't feel it! Could the length of my cycle affect how far along I am??

You can purchase a pregnancy test at a dollar store, pharmacy, or Walmart.
