Exploring options with a Care Confidential advisorBy anonymous on 08/01/2012
A week ago I discovered I was pregnant. I wasn't that shocked when both home tests read positive. I had been feeling 'weird' for a few weeks. I had gone completely off sex, didn't want my partner to touch me especially my breasts as they had become very heavy and sensitive, I had strange feelings in my lower stomach, my pre-existing depression had increased, I was very tired all the time and was achy all over. I am a regular horse rider and noticed a change in my riding - I had become weak and struggled to mount with the same 'spring'. Even though I wasn't initially shocked, it did provide a reason for my 'weird' feelings and it was even a sense of relief as I had begun to think that something more serious was going on. I am, however, in a bit of a spin.
