But I’m afraid to take a test to know for sure. Me and my hubbie have been married a few months, we were not planning on getting pregnant now as I just started teaching and we are on one income. I went off BC a while back and we have been using condoms. We did have sex 2x last month without one and I’m sitting here thinking what are the chances that one of those times got me pregnant.
I am over a week late, going to be 2 weeks. Around the time I was going to get my period, my breasts got really, really sore, then it went away after around 3 days and I have felt fine ever since. No morning sickness, eating more, any other symptoms. I have been going to sleep really early though, but I attribute that to starting teaching as I am not used to being on my feet for 6 hours with 30 kids, so it does wear you out. My husband is dead set that I am pregnant, but I am so focused on my teaching right now, making a good impression with my cooperating teacher and I am also being observed for the first time next week, I kind of don’t want to know. I feel like if I take the test and it’s positive, I am going to feel even more stressed out and overwhelmed thinking that being pregnant is going to negatively effect my teaching these next few months. I was planning on taking the test mid- next week, after I am done being observed. I haven’t been drinking, I don’t smoke so I am taking precautions just in case I am. So, should I just go ahead and take the test? Does it sound like I’m pregnant?

Every woman is different – I think you need to take the test to be sure. If you don’t want to stress yourself out, just make sure you’re taking care of yourself as if you were pregnant. No caffiene, no alcohol, no medication other than tylenol, take a multi-vitamin every day until you can check with your doctor about a prenatal.

I would just take the test… you need to know so you can get proper medical care and dont accidently have a cocktail or something that you do want to do…so just take it… they arent as scary as youd think…Good luck either way let us know!!

Instead of going crazy in your mind, please go get a pregnancy test (or two) and just find out. This way you will just flat out know.

I was once 2 weeks late because of stress and it turned out to be nothing. However, I would seriously take a test if I were you. Better for your piece of mind to know for sure sooner rather than later.

Well first of all having sex unprotected will get you pregnant. If you weren’t planning it then that clearly was an oops!
It sounds like you’re going to stress either way so better just take the test. Then you’ll know. Plan on only stressing about it out of school. Try to make school a work and professional place, leave all your personal troubles at home. Hard I know but if you start that way it’ll be easier to stick with it.

think of it this way….if you don’t take the test, there is a 100% chance that you will be majorly stressed about this. if you do take the test, there’s a 50% chance that you’ll find out that you’re not pregnant and can stop worrying.
being a week or two late every once in a while is prety common for most women in times of stress. are you normally very regular?
