Pregnant ? Lubricants? Pregnant?
My boyfriend and i have been trying to have a baby. But the question i have is .... Would using massage oil as a lubricant prevent me being pregnant?

The wierd thing is , my boyfriend whenever he is close to me he kisses my tummy and rubs it (he doesnt do that normally), and my tummy has been bloated for a few days now. Does it mean a possible pregnancy? I havent had my periods yet. But would his behaviour be a natural feeling that somehow there is something growing inside of me?

Fatigue is all i have been feeling the whole week.

I have loss of appetite.( But thats almost usual). And some foods/ drinks i usually would eat/drink smell / taste funny to me.

Am i just fixated with pregnancy or is there something to this?

I wouldn't recommend massage oil as a lubricant. It may irritate the vagina.
It sounds like you are wishing for a pregnancy and reading things into this. You will have to wait for your period to know if you are pregnant or not.

Best wishes
