It may be that your period is simply skipping, but only a test will tell for sure. A bit more body weight might be better, but at the time of my son's conception his mom was virtually the same size (BMI-wise) as you. And he was fine. What you need to do is see a doctor. Either your own or a clinic. Planned Parenthood has clinics that can help, what ever your concerns are. To find the nearest one go to: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/ Best wishes, and Good Luck!!
It's fine, when I was you're age I use to be 110lbs. When you're pregnant, you're body will accomadate itself to expecting a child. See a doctor if you find out you are pregnant however, and from there your doctor will take note on how much weight you are expected to gain each month. As well as keep track of your eating habits and what foods you'll need to feed two.
Being skinny doesn't stop you from carrying a baby. So yes you will be able to carry a baby. A woman's body is physically built to carry a baby. However if it's an eating disorder it can cause a whole world of problems for both you and your baby. But if you are just skinny, you are fine. I would take the test to see if you were pregnant though.
Your not too skinny to give birth or have a kid. I was 13 when I was pregnant I was 4'12" and I weigh 90 pounds. I was basically a stick. Asking as you take cre of yourself you're good! & maybe your period just skipped a month. Wait a couple of day the most a week and go to a free clinic or buy yourself a home pregnancy test. Good luck.
PLEASE educate yourself before assuming things! Being skinny does not mean that you can't have a child. There are 8 year olds who have given birth to babies (through rape and terrible stories). It just depends on whether or not your body is producing eggs.
yeah im taking a test tomorrow. but thank you guys ! im hoping its just my period skipping. also no im just naturally skinny i try to gain weight just doesnt work !
If you were pregnant, you'll be ok then. A little weight would be good, but you'll be ok. Make sure to eat healthy.
