1st baby !

I'm 20 years old & have been wanting a baby with my boyfriend for a long time. Yesterday we found out I'm pregnant, at least 5 weeks. I'm sooo excited that words can't explain. I've never went through pregnancy symptoms before so I'm not sure what to expect...

Congrats! It just all depends on your body. I am 5 weeks with 4 previous pregnancies and did not have any of the pregnancy symptoms. So everyone is different. My sister stayed sick during her previous pregnancy and now. Read and educate yourself and you should be ok.

I got pregnant with my first at 20 also, now I'm pregnant with my second. As far as the symptoms go they're really different for everyone and with every pregnancy. With my first I was sick every day for 8 months, and with this one I had about 2 weeks of sickness and now nothing. As the previous poster said, try and educate yourself as much as possible. I had no idea what was going on with my first, so I spent hours on this site and others just learning as much as possible, and learning what was considered normal or not. Feel free to ask lots of questions if you need to, and make sure you feel comfortable asking your OB about any concerns or questions you have also. Right now the most common ones for how far along you are will be the morning sickness and low energy, but both should improve over time.
