i was pregnant a few months bacc and i wound up getting an abortion, i regret it now, but i think that im pregnant again. me nd my boyfriend always have unprotected sex but my periods are irregular so more than once ive thought i was pregnant but i wasnt. i have a few symptoms now like ive gained weight and my eating patterns changed, for a few days my abdomen hurt alot and it felt weird, from what i remember, just like last time. i also have to urinate alot. i havent taken a test yet, im kind of scared. i do think im pregnant though, i kind of just feel it. but if i am im afraid that i messed up, i am somewhat "bulimic" which is why the weight gain really makes me think that i am. but i know by doing this im harming the baby, but i havent known that it was there. also ive smoked. so i dont know what to do. i know i have to take a test before i start worrying about it but i dont know. help?
Well I had a miscarriage before a couple of years ago and my doctor asked me if I wanted to get pregnant again b/c if i didn’t I would need to get on some type of birth control as I may be more susceptible to pregnancy after an abortion or miscarriage. (I really don’t know how true that is b/c this was the opinion of a physican at a free clinic….) So you may indeed be pregnant , or you may not. The best way to know is to take a test. As for your other concerns, Im certain that all women who were not planing to get pregnant may have resumed in their normal behavior which may include smoking, drinking, etc… I know that I have had a couple of drinks during the first couple of days that I was unknowing pregnant and asked my doctor how and if this would affect my unborn baby, while my doctor could not offer me exacts, she advised that I should immediately stop those things (which of course i did after finding out i was pregnant) and told me that I probably had nothing to worry about. So my advice to you would be to stop those things if you think you may be pregnant and know you want to keep the baby and just take a test. You should also seek help for your eating disorder which may be exacerbated by your pregnancy.
I hope this helps
