Could I be pregnant? (prefer answers from experienced people or doctors)


Q: I haven't taken a test yet but I've been getting nauseous to the point where I'd lose my appetite, migraines, emotional, agitated, and have been looking bloated lately. The last time I had sex (unprotected with ex-boyfriend) was mid September and I've been feeling everything but the nausea and loss of appetite since at least a month. The migraines were just about every day up until a week ago where they haven't been as frequent. My boobs have gotten fuller but the growth isn't that very noticeable. I'm 19 years old, 5'0", 100lbs, very athletic, and have a metabolism where I don't gain any weight no matter how much I eat. I'm also on the depo shot. I work at a fast food restaurant but this isn't the first time I've worked at a fast food restaurant; just the first time I've gained weight since working at one. I sleep about 9-12 hours a night, wake up and shower, then feel tired enough to take a nap an hour later. My lower back has been hurting, mainly when its cold out. (I live in WV) I've been on the depo shot since April 2010 and haven't had a "period" since. I've also had some pelvic pain (mainly right side but happens in middle and left also at the same time) but haven't really had anything but clear discharge. I also had a miscarriage my first time having sex when I was 17; I would have been only about 2-3 weeks at the time. I'm also stressed due to financial problems and work related problems. Could it just be stress affecting me, or could I be pregnant and my body not really be telling me?
