With a tubal, there would be intense pain, and by 3 months she would have had symptoms because the size of the baby at this point would have ruptured her fallopian tube. So I seriously doubt it is a tubal pregnancy.
Also, you are incorrect that an ectopic pregnancy doesn't show up on a pregnancy test. It does. The embryo is developing and therefore the pregnancy hormone HCG will be present.
I do not think your friend is pregnant. But if she hasn't had a period in three months when she has otherwise been regular, she needs to go to the doctor, insurance or no. She could have an STD or other illness that has affected her cycles.

Well she is on the outer edge of normal weight or her height. Most doctors would recommend for her to gain about 25 pounds. But I am sure 15-20 pounds would be fine as well.
Different woman have different experiences with pregnancy and appetite. I never had a problem gaining too much weight. Actually it was tough for me to gain enough. But I had morning sickness all nine months with my girls.
But other woman struggle with gaining too much. Best advice is to not eat like you are eating for two. A pregnant woman only needs to eat extra food in the second and third trimesters. And even then only around 200-300 calories extra are needed a day. So that equals about a glass of milk and a piece for fruit extras or the equivalent.

It took me two and a half months to actually find out I was pregnant. I had no symptoms that I recognized as the typical pregnancy symptoms (Morning sickness, aching breasts etc)
A month and a half in, when I was supposed to get my second period (I bled normally in the first two months, hence why I didn't even know I was pregnant!) I started to get dizzy, and almost pass out. This happened all of four times maybe? I was putting the blame on my period, or simply standing up too quickly.
At two and a half months, a few days before I was due for my third period, I suddenly had to puke.
Although I didn't have morning sickness (Just nausea during the end of my first trimester - than it went away completely), I had a spare test laying around, I decided to take it, and viola, i was preggo! I did still bleed though, so I ended up going to the doctor to check it out - and sometimes, my doc said that they don't know why you bleed, you just do.
I was put on bedrest, and the rest of my pregnancy has been well!
However, as for being tired, cramps or aches? Nothing that I wouldn't associate with the normal period symptoms...No weight gain, no cravings, nothing like that, it's still early
Once the egg is implanted, then you may feel a bit of cramping (Turns out, I thought I was getting my period, and I bled from that - but not all women do)
I was oblivious to being pregnant - so I didn't notice anything, or wasn't hyper sensative to it.
However, before, when I thought I was, I was noticing all these symptoms and signs...when I wasn't pregnant at all!
Your body sure does trick you!

It could just be stress for you or you could have pulled a muscle.
Since you are only a month pregnant, I wouldn't think that the neck and back pain was from pregnancy.
A cause for neck and back pain is because of the increase in hormones which causes a shift in joints and can loosen ligaments which could cause posture to change and a less support for your back.
Another reason is once you become bigger and actually have a pretty big belly, your center of gravity will change and this causes a different posture that your body isn't used to., which over time will cause pain. Also when the baby becomes bigger and you start to gain more weight, your back has to support more weight in a different area than it's used to. Ever carry a heavy back pack around all day and your back begins to hurt? It's like that, only in your belly.
You can start to help symptoms of this by using pillows between your legs to even out your back while you are sleeping. There are also certain pregnancy pillows that are made specifically for pregnant women.
I started feeling back pain around 20 weeks. I'm also very small built and very short, and carrying a baby and baby weight for me was a struggle. You'll start feeling pain once you put on more baby weight and your belly gets bigger, but it can all depend on your build.
Good luck to you!

I had a miscarriage- and am ttc so i know ur fear of having another one especially after not a long time of healing- I am sorry for your loss-
-pregnancy cramps are very very mild- just a little tugging and pulling once in a while nothing you would really feel more think is uncomfortable
- yet mc pain is pretty obvious- it is cramping and severy back ache and pain accompanied by blood almost like a period but heavier and it progresses within a matter of a day to a couple hours-
when you have a mc try to let your ueterus heal- even though its hard- but after loosing a pregnancy most dr's say to wait a few months for the body to heal itself- good luck I hope you get the answers u are looking for- Baby Dust to you
