Hi everyone

I'm 22 and just found out I'm pregnant last friday. I've no idea how far gone I am and finding it a bit hard to cope. Was sick yestaerday morning and today. I'm really worried about money aswell does anyone know anything about child benefit etc?
I just want some advice really as I'm pretty scared! Also I've had a bit of a sharp pain down the left side of my tummy when I get up from sitting in some positions. Is this normal?

Hi Jess

those pains are just normal growing pains. Get yourself to the GP as soon as possible so they can take blood tests and get you set up with midwife care - that way you will get estimated due dates and so on.

Child benefits are pretty small, 18.10 per week for first child. check out for full info.

Your midwife should also be able to refer you to local support groups.

Hope that helps - good luck!!
