    I am a teen and I just found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant. I am worried about my baby because before I knew I wasn't taking as good of care of my body as I should have... I didn't drink much and I got really sick and vomited for 3 days. I know that that isn't a very good sign sometimes. Does someone have advice for me?

    I know exactly how you feel because before I found out I was pregnant, i really wasnt eating anything and I was throwing up alot, then thats when i found out i was 6wks pregnant. Now, since you're only 6 weeks, you're still in your first trimester of the pregnancy, and its always the first few weeks that you're feeling sick the most, so you can just try to eat the things that sounds good to you, and i was told that eating cold foods like cereal, or sandwiches, they should also help because it doesn't have a smell to it that'll make you want to throw up, you know, and eat alot of fruit and try to keep down some liquids too, like some ginger-ale, apple juice, stuff like that. So you'll be fine, and by the way, i'm on my 2nd baby, and i'm 4 months now, so i've been thru the same thing...
    *Good Luck

    Hello and Welcome!

    I can understand your concerns, but now that you know you are pregnant you can begin to research to find out as much as you can about having a happy and healthy pregnancy!

    Start with our Pregnancy Health Center and surf around to see
    what to expect. You can also check out the different Trimester sections to be aware of different issues and concerns as you go through each stage. Start with First Trimester and go from there!

    We also have specific Trimester Communities to connect with other moms for support and advice in each phase of pregnancy. Click here for the First Trimester Community.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! Let us know if you have any specific questions and we will be sure to help!
