I am 2 weeks late for my period and have been craving fish, avocado and sweet potato in the last week. My long term boyfriend and I have not been using any contraception since I came off the pill 5 months ago, but I did'nt think there was much chance of me getting pregnant as I have been managing an addiction to over the counter painkillers containing codeine for a year. I am now off the painkillers completely from the last 2 weeks and I believe its at this time we may have conceived.
My breasts aren't sore or haven't gotten any bigger (shame!) and I haven't had any morning sickness but I am having real trouble sleeping (hot flushes) and I have a nasty cold/cough as well
I had a strong desire to quite smoking yesterday which I did, I bought nicotine patches and have been using them for less than 24 hours and I'm finding it very easy and am not craving cigarettes at all whereas before I was smoking between 5 and 10 a day and would get bad cravings and become very moody if I didn't have one.
It was my birthday at the weekend and I had a massive party where I drank around 30 units of alcohol over a course of the weekend, I'm worried about the effect this will have at this early stage if I am pregnant, if the baby will survive or be born with FAS (terrifying)
My boyfriend and I would be over the moon if I was pregnant, albeit a little untimely but hey is there ever a 'right' time?
I know I need to take a pregnancy test to be sure, but if anyone has been in a similar situation and can offer any advice I'd be really grateful.
