      I am at a loss!!! I have no idea what to think??? I have been researching message boards all day, and I am still confused. I have gained almost 20 lbs within the past couple of months!!! It could be because I am stressed out, but I am really starting to wonder. How much weight do you gain if you are pregnant?? My fiance and I always use protection and I am on the pill. I have been eating foods that I usually dispise and well, obviously I am uncomfortable because of the extra weight!!! I have been having my period fine, but some people were talking about "implantation" bleeding and it sounded kinda of like something that might have just happened to me!! Can that happen later??? I do not have health insurance right now and I cannot go to the doctor!!! I do not know what to do or how to find out what is happening?!?!

      How much weight do you usually gain when pregnant??? And when would you accumulate most of that weight???


        Hey there, if you say you use protection and are on the pill, I don’t think your pregnant. It could be the hormones in the pill that make you have cravings and are making you gain weight. If you’ve been having your period regularly, thats another sign you probably aren’t pregnant. I don’t know what type of birth control pill you use but with all methods, there are side effects. I used ortho tricylen a couple years ago and one of the side effects in the booklet (the Dr. gives you) was weight gain so maybe thats the reason you’ve gained weight. Your body may take the hormones differently than other women, I didn’t experience any side effects. You could try a lower dose of hormones if your uncomfortable with the side effects.
