Yo, you are definitely pregnant. Morning sickness isn’t exactly the correct word, it’s more like all day sickness. Sometimes I felt so nauseous I stayed on my couch all day and barely ate one whole cracker. You need to read up on when your body is ready to have a baby. Here is something I got off the net from AmericanBaby.com:
When does pregnancy begin? Unless you’re using ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology), it’s impossible to know the exact moment of conception. For this reason, most health-care providers count 40 weeks from the date of your last menstrual period, or LMP, to calculate your due date. According to this method, pregnancy actually begins about two weeks before the sperm penetrates the egg. The baby’s gestational age corresponds to the actual date of conception.
Amazingly, your baby’s genetic code was written at the moment of conception; his or her sex and all inherited characteristics–including eye color, hair, skin, and body type–have already been determined. This week the ball of cells, or embryo, completes its journey through the fallopian tube and comes to rest in your uterus, a process known as implantation. You may experience light bleeding when the egg implants, which many women mistake for menstruation. In fact, spotting that is lighter than your usual menstrual flow is one of eight signs you may be pregnant.
Don’t get an abortion like all these idiots that write in and sugar coat their reasonings. I thought about having one but I’m smarter than that, come on now! Doesn’t take two brain cells to realize you gotta start small before you get big, and that’s what a baby has to do—-that’s why people think it’s ok to have an abortion because the baby is small and they can’t see in her in their bods.
