  • Fatigue / tiredness
  • Nausea / morning sickness
  • Backaches
  • Headaches

I am 28 weeks and I still have morning sickness very bad.  My doctor isn't worried and said that since it did not leave after the first trimester that I will have it through out my pregnancy.

Oh no that stinks. I couldn't imagine being sick for the entire pregnancy.

I will do anything for my little one but my morning sickness isn't at a certain time.  I have been up all night in the bathroom before.  Thanks goodness I do not have to work.  I do have hot flashes and heartburn too.  I am still happy to be pregnant.  This will be the only time I have to be pregnant so I better enjoy it.

Im embarrassed to ask this, but is this a sign of pregnance?  My bf and I have made love two of the last three nights, and he told me I felt very tight going in...and the last time he said my vagina felt shorter and I felt really tight.  I am a week or so late on my period, should I take a test, is this a sign?

I am very nervous about this but it just seems so different now...

Ugh, that's a bummer. How late are you with your period? I would test again in a couple days and if it's still negative, then I'd go to the doctor and have a blood test done.
