Im 17 and i think i might be pregnant, Me and my boyfriend have been dating for almost 3 years and we been having sex for 1year and a half. I have birth control and we dont use condoms, yes i know its stupid but we hate them, this is the first i have been feeling sick and sore in 2 years with him. I have been puking in the morning and my boobs are sore and I think its strange because i just had my period but its even stranger it only lasted 4 days?? So I am not sure what to think, i haven't gotten to the store yet to buy a test. Maybe some advice or answers would help me out, and if i am pregnant i will need some answers how to tell my bf whos turning jan 15th (this friday) and my family. Well thanks, and please hurry, i need to talk to someone or just have advice and answers.

hey im Simone (19), mommy to Jasmine. Ive been with curtis(22) over 3 1/2 years. Well it sounds like you have some of the signs, but only a test is going to tell for sure. I started getting sick right away. Maybe it wasnt your period? I had what i thought was a period @ the first of my pregnancy, but it wasnt near as much or as long. but like i said, get a test! keep us posted & welcome to the board btw :)

Thank you for posting, Yeah i think i do to, but this friday ill go and get one. I just never been pregnant before and its kinda exciting but then again really scarey for a teen lol. I would love to start a family but i know my boyfriend wants to wait till we are like 24, i dont have any problems with that but idk. I know we are going to be together for a long time, he bought me a promise ring and promised me that hes going to marry me :). Could you tell me whats it like to be a mom at a young age?? so maybe i can have some confendince (i dont know how to spell well).

Hello and welcome to the board. I'm krystal (20) mommy to 17 month old Ian Lee. You do have some symptoms but the best bet is to get a test or just a dr appt to be sure.

I'll say what it's like for me being a teen mom cant vouch for everyone! I love being a younger mom i feel it allows you to do more with your kids. Don't get me wrong i wish i would have waited till i got older but wouldn't change it for anything. There's hard times and there's good times. But you just have to let the hard times flow cause there will be so much more good times :) The hard times of being such a young mom is trying to juggle your education, job, and child at the same time is rough but so worth it. The good times of being a teen mom is coming home to such a sweet angel every night. And watching all that stress just pore off me.

Congratulations and gl on whatever u find out. We're always here if you wanna chat :)

Yeah i understand, so what did you do when you found out you were pregnant, and how old?? I think i could be a mom, because all i mostly have is school, i hardly work but if i am pregnant then i will need to start working more often just for the baby, So i know i said im very scared if i am, but it think it would be cute because its having someone that is truly yours to love and take care of. umm what kind of early symptoms did you have because i think i have some right now.

when i found out i was pregnant i was at work and everyone was going crazy. I told everyone not to say a word when delbert came to pick me up. I told him to pull over on the side of the road cause i had to tell him something. I told him and at first he was kinda disapointed that i never mentioned even thinking i was pregnant with him but we were both so excited. We then took both parents out to eat at olive garden and told all at the same time just to get it over with. btw i was 18 when i found out 19 when i had Ian.

some of the symptoms i had was sore boobs (but didnt start till like 3 months), morning sickness which actually lasted from start to finish, smells (i sware my nose strengthened up and any weird smell made me vomit like eggs, onions, sour cream and onion chips was the worst.) but some of my cravings were mac n' cheese, and pickles soaked in my ice cream yum yum. and strawberry milk.

so what all symptoms are you having that you usually don't on a regular basis? (that make you think your preggo)

ya i know what you mean, exciting.. but oh so very scary. Curtis & i planned on waiting too.. but ya know.. things happen lol. Being a young mom is super hard. Luckily for me, i was graduated out of high school, but never got to do my 5 years of university (which im still going to do). Pregnancy & a baby is extremely hard on a relationship, but if you guys are both willing to work with it then im sure you'll be alright. I put poor curtis through h*** and back with my crazy hormones, but he's still here :P. i wish i wouldnt have got pregnant so young, but i wouldnt change it for the world, i would do it all over again for Jasmine :)

Really, Well i hope andrew excepts it for a 17 old boy, Thats my number one scared spot my family i would hate them to look at me like im a whore, (alothough i only has sex with on man my whole like) im feeling sick through out the day, my boobs are starting to hurt really bad, I dont look at my boobs that much but around them seems darker. This sucks in some ways but i talking to one of my guy friends and he told me that he will be by my side and i shouldnt worry what anyone else thinks. Im taking a test tomorrow, so i hope i can get this all over with and see whats going on you know. I cant stand the smell of rice and oranges.

yeah im a junior in school, not fun but i got to do it lol. Did you ever think "why me?" im thinking that now even though im not sure or not, Im taking a test tomorrow to see. Thats one thing im scared of the hormones my bf andrew is very different like if im crabby at him he would just walk away and not talk to me, he doesnt do this to be mean but he just doesnt want to fight, For my age what do you think i should do if i am, adoption or keep it?? i dont want to decide (if i am) Well its nice to hear that everyone is happy they had there kids, but was it scary when you told your parents???
