What made you think you got pregnant? What are the signs? Like feeling sick? Want to vomit? Stomache? I have heard some pregnant women said when they got pregnant they feel like those and the period late. I'm not pregnant but I'm very curious to know how does it feel? so I can know now before it happens hehehehehehe ^_^

The first time I got pregnant I felt tired and different to normal. I was feeling sick in the evening. I was busy helping my best friend prepare for her wedding. I was quite surprised when I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. My husband was Australian and we were living in the UK. We got divorced six years later. The second time I got pregnant I felt very weird and not at all well. I did a pregnancy test to rule that one out. I was amazed to see it was positive. In that pregnancy at 36 weeks it was found my baby had spina bifida. The next few weeks were upsetting and when my baby was born he had to spend three weeks in a special care baby unit. It was hard with my baby's father and he got quite nasty towards me. His driving got even more dangerous and he got the sack from his job. I split up with him and a few months later began dating another man. I was off to the traveling for two weeks and then he was off traveling for a month. We split up and I did try dating my ex-boyfriend again. I got pregnant and didn't know that for a while because I just felt tired. When I did find out I kept the news to myself because I wanted to have an ultrasound scan to check for spina bifida first. My baby is due in June 2009. She is meant to be completely healthy and I am looking forward to her birth.

People look at me very strange when I say I didn't know I was pregnant until almost seven months in. I didn't even feel the baby move until the day after I was told I was pregnant. It was weird because I didn't crave anything, I didn't get sick, my periods were always irregular so when I didn't get it I thought it was just stress, and I really didn't even realize that my entire life was about to change until the doctor said push...as a matter of fact, the only thing that did happen to me was that I noticed whenever I ate something I got fuller faster..I just thought then it was time to slow down and go on a diet...lol

Hi mermaid...Every body is different. I did not feel sick immediately but I got extremely tired and could not keep my eyes open past driving home and getting into the house. Some women had morning sickness - I got sick at night. Some women feel like they have a cold the entire time - I had that. All of these symptoms go away after childbirth thankfully. I couldn't think straight and I was constantly forgetting things. That hasn't gone away yet... I'm still waiting. Good luck to you!
