so confused

I don't have a car and I live with my parents, I do attend high school (so yes I'm very young), and I'm 5 days late. How in the world do I get my hands on a pregnancy test without drawing attention from my loved ones? I don't know what to do. Not to mention I had light spotting around the time I was supposed to get my period. Could I even be pregnant?

If sex was involved, yes.

Take a walk to a store? Or is that too far?

I would give it a week more before you go buy a test.  Ask someone with a car to get you one lol. Im sure there are plenty upper classmen who would.help you

I don't think a store is too far, it's just the fact that there is a major street that I have to cross to get there. And I'm worried about the judgement I would get from the person at the check out line

I was eighteen when I bought the tests. How many did I buy?  About a dozen. I didn't really get any weird looks. If they do, state back at them and kick your lips. They'll look away. :D

Haha yeah that might be an option, but I doubt he would like me going with someone else and him being clueless.  We're basically glued at the hip when we both have free time

How far along are you? And how did you tell your parents?

I'm nineteen weeks and my mom knew before I got to tell her, and I told her when u was for weeks pregnant. She was excited because unlike her I waited a little bit longer, she had me when she was seventeen.

If you're still in high school, go to the school nurse. That's their job.. talk to her about it and she should give you a test. If it turns out you're not pregnant after all, talk to her about contraceptives if you aren't planning on getting pregnant anytime soon.

Well that must've been easier, if she already knew.. a mother just knows I guess!

She's not allowed to give out tests, school policy

Go to the store and get one u need to know and any dirty or weird looks from strangers don't matter if nothing else do u have a debit card? U could order some offline as long as no one at ur house opens ur mail

Well thank you for reminding me the looks from stangers don't matter.  I guess I'll just have to suck it up
