I'm 10 and have been nauseous in the morning,my stomach has been getting bigger like the other pregnant girls,i've been eating more and very emotional,my back hurts and i can barley bend down.I've been getting my period but it's yellowish and just spotting.I haven't done anything but i don't know what is wrong with me;can i be pregnant or is it something else?
See your pediatrician. If you did not have any sexual behavior with boys, this may be a different condition. However, it is important that you see your doctor or go to the emergency room with your parents. There are many conditions other than pregnancy that can cause these symptoms. At 10 years old pregnancy is unlikely unless you have had your full period for awhile. tell your mom or grandma and get examined.
