Hello - let me start by saying every pregnacy is different, in the first trimester which is week 1 to 12 you may experience morning sickness which is not just in the morning could be all day everyday and normally starts around week 6, tender boobs and the nipple colour may get darker. Your mood may be up and down due to hormons. With the birth it hurts quite alot but you midwife will be able to discuss pain control methods! Have you told your mum you are pregnant? As she will be able to tell you from her experience. I hope this helps. Good luck

yes it hurts. it hurts like h*ll even with the epi or any other pain meds. i had the epi...it helped but it was still the worst pain i've experienced in my life.

get what to expect when expecting. it'll tell you what can and should happen through out your pregnancy.

To be honest, yes, it hurts like h***.  Like the above poster said even with meds and an epi it hurts like h***.  Your body is going through the most excrutiating pain it will ever go through.  Even the pregnancy itself can be uncomfortable or down right painful.  But when all is said and you hold your baby for the first time, you forget.  At 7-8 weeks you may be having morning sickness, tiredness, mood swings, etc.  Your body is going through some really big changes right now.  You are so young and every womens' pregnancy is different.  Have you told your Mom so that she can help you through this?

how can I put this lightly..... I can't.... YYYEEESSSS!!!! Birth is something men and the rest of the world give women so much credit for enduring. At a mere 15 though you can definatly expect your birth to the extremely painful. Symptoms run anywhere from back aches, recurring headaches, breast tenderness, nipple soreness, even accelerated heartbeat!!! There are plenty of signs. I also think it would be a good idea to let your mother know so she may direct you to the right dr or midwife. The earlier you get in touch with reality about the pain of bearing a child the easier it will be when the day comes. I wish you the best of luck!!!!!!!!!!!

If you can imagine the feeling of being stretched, ripped, and a general feeling like having a bomb explode your insides as something the size of a watermellon is involuntarily shoved out your vagina by your own muscles and hormones...you just might be able to imagine the pain of childbirth.
But it's over within a few hours, and is worth it a million times over when you hold your baby for the first time.
Tell your parents and start seeing an OB if you haven't already.
