  • yep welcome to pregnancy. Its called morningsickness and happens and usually goes away by 12 to 13weeks. you can be sick any time of the day or night doesnt matter so dont let the name confuse you. Id tell your parents here quickly becuz its important to get good medical care while pregnant. and you need to be taking a prenatal vitamin that you can by over the counter at any store. they are all about the same so you can buy the cheap ones no worries. Get to your doctor asap.i was 17 when i had my first its scary but it'll be ok

  • I don't know if it's normal, I have 2 children thru adoption. Please talk to your parents, your mom will know and then you won't be so scared. Maybe have someone with you - a friend, aunt, older sister - if it would make it easier.

  • its not called folic acid but it does have it in. They are called prenatal vitamins. you can take them any time and they should be started asap. Your parents might be upset at first but its to late to do anything about it. im sure it will all be ok plus you might be surprised to learn your mother already knws and is waiting for you to tell her. my mom knew befor i told her. Have a friend or someone with you. good luck and it will be ok.
