I have a sneaky feeling I might be pregnant.  I stopped taking my pills about 6 months ago.  I feel sick, kind of throughout the day, have a funny butterfly feeling in my tummy, mild cramps, tiredness and sore breasts. 

The really daft thing is, I work a crazy job, 80 -90 hours a week, no days off a lot of the time, and I really can't remember how long ago my last period was...??  Silly I know....but it all kind of merges together.  It's been at least 3 weeks, maybe 4, maybe when do you reckon I should do a test?

I agree with the other Emma. Just take a test, sounds like its v possible youre pregnant and you wont be able to relax until you know for sure. (Although doesnt sound like you have a lot of time to relax anyway).

Good luck. em x

I went to the doctors on Thursday.  She just said congratulations, told me to book in with the midwife and then spent about 10 minutes going on about how likely miscarriage was in the first 3 months.  That mkaes you feel really great hey.  I've got my appointement with the midwife on Monday.  Scary thing was this morning I started bleeding.  I had this mad panic moment that the doctor must have felt something wrong and spent so long going on about miscarriage to soften the blow or somehting.  My other half just flew out of Heathrow for a stag weekend so  was here all by my tod.

 Anyway I rang the midwife, and she assure me that "brown blood" is okay, just normal 1st trimester bleeding, just old blood and nothing to worry about as long as you're pain free.  She said if I started bleeding red blood to get back in touch.  But the bleeding stopped pretty much as soon as it started.  So I'm happier now.

 I know they say you go to the loo a lot more when you're pregnant. . . I certainly have been, but nothing to do with needing to wee more,....more to keep checking that nothings going wrong.  Scray this preganacy lark hey!
