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..
