Comment from: 25-34 Female Published: January 25

I am 33 I have fibromyalgia and arthritis so when I was beyond tired and weak I knew something was up. Also for four weeks my breasts were so sore. I took a test and had drank a lot of fluids my urine was clear but my positive still came through dr appt in a few days .This was a surprise my only child is going on 16.

While my husband was in class one evening, I went to Wal-Mart to get hair dye and since I passed the home pregnancy tests, I picked one up on a whim. I had no reason to think I might be pregnant, I hadn't yet missed my period, I want experiencing any symptoms. I dyed my hair then took the test. When I saw the results, I texted my husband to see if he could get a picture text, because "I just saw something you might find interesting". We are 7 weeks along now with my first child, his fifth... And other than the now missed period, I still haven't had any real strong symptoms.

We planned the pregnancy together with my partner so the 2nd day I realized I missed my period, bought a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. I was very happy I then went for a scan on the same day we couldn't see a thing. Blood test later confirmed the big new. It's my second child after 12 years.

I was on birth-control evera patch from after my 2nd daughter was born. I was very regular about it. I don't know how I missed one patch. I missed my period I waited 1 week after that I went to the doctor. I found out that I am pregnant. This time I couldn't even think I was shocked. But thanks god everything is good now. I am 7 month pregnant now waiting for my baby.

I went to the doctor because I was experiencing discharge, and discussed with my doctor that I wanted to have my tubes tied, she said sure lets run some test including a pregnancy test and it came back positive, so long for the tube ligation for another 7 1/2 months, this will be my 3rd child. I'm not leaving the hospital unless my tubes are tied!!!

I am 3months pregnancy and pregnancy is not as I thought but sometimes it's hectic. I like food 2 much but the problem is that I'm vomiting and I hate boys for no reason. Even my boyfriend I miss him while he is out of my sight but when I'm with him I feel I can leave him.
