    Help with translation

    Hi guys,

    Have this single translation I'm banging my head against the desk trying to translate.

    Context:

    Girl just had sex with a guy, unprotected. She's laying there -thinking- this:

    ・・・どうしよう・・・妊娠なんかしないわよね・・とにかく早く帰って体洗わないと・・


    I know the first part is her wondering, what she's going to do.

    The last part I think she says she's quickly going to go home to take a bath/wash herself.

    The pregnancy part, I don't understand what she's saying, and the machine translators are giving me garbage to work with.


    Thanks for your help.

    "どうしよう" also means striking/confusing feeling.
    What makes such feeling is a fear of pregnancy.
    Read "妊娠なんかしないわよね" as "妊娠してないよね".

    ・・・どうしよう・・・妊娠なんかしないわよね・・とにかく早く帰って体洗わないと・・

    What should I do... I'm not pregnant or something, right? (わよね adds emphasis on that last part)... anyhow, I've got to get home quickly and wash myself (my body).

    "Pregnancy" is a verb here (妊娠しない).

    With ないと the implied result isn't described here, so the translation is more flexible, IMO. It could also be "If I don't get home quickly and wash my body... (it will probably result in something negative given the context).
