My fiance have been together for 8 years, we rarely argue and almost never have big fights. However one day I woke wanting nothing to do with him... he couldn't do anything right, everything he said was an insult, and I seriously considered finding my own apartment. I work in a male dominated field and am the only woman in my department, so normally i get on with men well, but I realized that I couldn't stand the thought of a man even speaking to me. Then a week or so later morning sickness kicked in... What a relief it was to find out I was pregnant!

I'm 18 and experiencing lower back tugging pain, a lot of bloating, woke up my nipples were painful and around it was swollen. The foods I used to be obsessed with, I now think are nasty and it makes me gag. I am tired all the time, even though I am having 12 hours of sleep. I get massive headaches, and having cramps. I had these for bout 2 weeks now and when I do bleed its light. When I do have a period, it's not like what I'm experiencing now, its different, I know. I'm pregnant after going through what I've been through.

I'm 22 years old and this is my first pregnancy. I've experienced "night sickness" not morning sickness, which seems weird to me but was told that it was a common thing. My mood swings have been awful. One minute I'm happy, the next I'm crying. Also, I have bloating in my abdominal area. I'm very nervous and excited at the same time.

Earlier this week, I threw up, started having tenderness, bloating, indigestion, sleeplessness, and all that good stuff that I usually get when my cycle is about to start. Well, I was a week late for my period and took a pregnancy test this morning, and it came back positive. I'm 40 and my husband is 46, and this will be our first. I woke his butt up and told him it was his fault, and he was very happy to be blamed.

I believe that I am a person that ovulates earlier than normal. My children seem to be larger than the average baby for the weeks accounted for after a missed period. This leads me to question some symptoms I have experienced this month. I had the nausea and vomiting a week ago two weeks after my cycle. I have the bloating, fatigue and tiredness, frequent urination and sometimes dizziness. My mood swings lately go from stressed and not being able to sleep which is why I am typing this at 3:35 am. I will be 40 in a couple of months and my baby is 16. I had to have one tube removed because of an ectopic pregnancy that went longer than it should because I was still having a period, so I am not sure what is going on. Have not missed a period yet, but feel that something is taking place within my body.

With pregnancy I'm feeling fuzzy with a light headache, fatigue, tiredness and flutters in the abdomen.
