Hi everyone,

I'm new to this site as I would like to chat to you girlies that are in the same situation as me and would like general advice and all round friendly conversations. Smile

My pregnancy wasn't a planned one nor it is unwanted either so I hope you don't think that I am being negative about it.
I am 24 years old and didn't think I would be having a baby for a few years at least. I started feeling a little 'funny' about 2 weeks ago. I was getting really sleepy, dizziness and lightheadness kept coming on and I thought it must be PMT. Since last week I have been feeling increasingly nausious and emotional. My period was due 12th May so I am now 4 days late and I just know that I am pregnant. My whole body feels different, my boobs are incredibly sore, sickness came on fully today and my god the tiredness! I've lost the energy to do anything! lol
I have done 3 pregnancy tests, 2 of which were negative and on the 3rd there was a very faint blue line but I am so sure that I am pregnant, I would put money on it. Anyone else get the 'feeling'?

My partner has been lovely, he is very supportive and to be honest I think he is secretly excited about this. I, on the other hand, am so scared. I'm suddenly worrying about everything. Only one of my friends have a child and I'm scared what my other friends will think, I'm scared what my parents will say and I'm just scared for the future and money. I'm renting at the minute with a flatmate. My boyfriend and I are planning to get a house together in October but I'm worried about what we can afford now we are going to have a baby.

I apologise, I know this is not a counselling service but any helpful tips will be much appreciated.

An unplanned pregnancy I would imagine is a big shock. There are no real right answers here, but I would say your gut instinct is the best thing to go with in regard to living arrangements etc. It must have thrown a spanner in the works with potentially getting a house so the decision about being a stay at home mum or going back to work and having child care is maybe something you'll need to decide if your other half can not support you all if you buy a house. The best thing you can do is talk to each other and keep on talking so you know exactly where you stand and what you are aiming for, both short term through the pregnancy and long term for the family you are going to become.
