30 Signs and Symptoms of Early Pregnancy from the Thick of the Two Week Wait

One week down, one more to go until the end of my first real two week wait. As every decently obsessive woman has, I’ve been through my fair share of pregnancy scares and fantasies. So, my second TTC (trying to conceive) gift to my readers (click here for the first) is a comprehensive list of every conceivable sign and symptom of early pregnancy that I’ve unearthed over the years.

  1. Tender or swollen breasts: Hormonal changes often make this one of the first signs of pregnancy. It’s also a sign of PMS.
  2. Fatigue: High progesterone, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and increased blood volume spell blah.
  3. Nausea and/or vomiting: Estrogen causes the stomach to empty more slowly. HCG is also a prime suspect behind this nagging symptom.
  4. Frequent urination: HCG increases blood flow to your pelvis, which makes you have to pee more.
  5. Changes in appetite: Early pregnancy can cause your appetite to wax or wane.
  6. Food cravings: You may develop a sudden yearning for pickles and ice-cream or some other such nonsense.
  7. Food aversions: Your morning coffee may make you want to gag. (I’m praying for this symptom to kick my mild caffeine habit.)
  8. Headaches: Hormonal changes trigger more blood to circulate during pregnancy, which can lead to frequent headaches.
  9. Weight gain or loss: Your weight usually doesn’t change significantly until later in pregnancy. However, weight gain or loss is possible during early pregnancy thanks to symptoms like #s 5, 6, and 7.
  10. Heightened sense of smell: Hormones make most pregnant women’s sniffers super sensitive.
  11. Heartburn: Progesterone relaxes the esophageal sphincter during pregnancy, which makes you more susceptible to heartburn.
  12. Cramping earlier than usual: The process of the fertilized egg implanting in the uterine wall can cause slight cramping and often happens before your expected period.
  13. Spotting earlier than usual: Some women also experience spotting during implantation.
  14. Prominent veins: Increased blood volume during early pregnancy can cause visible veins, especially in your breasts.
  15. Darkening areolas: Hormones can affect skin pigmentation throughout pregnancy. One of the first changes you’ll see could be darkening of the skin around your nipples.
  16. Bloating and/or gas: Rising progesterone levels relax the digestive tract, which makes it run slower, which can lead to that bloated feeling and embarrassing episodes of gas.
  17. Constipation: Increased progesterone can lead to constipation.
  18. Diarrhea: Although less common, some women experience diarrhea. It’s usually caused by something outside your body, but it’s also how some women respond to changing hormones.
  19. Backache: For some women, loosening joints and ligaments lead to back pain even before they gain weight and start to show.
  20. Hot flashes: Fluctuating hormones can cause hot flashes that feel like heat waves running through your body.
  21. Mood Swings: Who wouldn’t be moody with all these signs and symptoms brewing?
  22. Racing heart: Resting heart rate increases during pregnancy and sometimes leads to minor heart rhythm irregularities, which can sometimes feel like your heart is galloping through your chest.
  23. Increasing creamy cervical fluid during the luteal phase (second halfish) of your cycle: Cervical fluid is typically not an accurate predictor of pregnancy. This cautious statement comes from Taking Charge of Your Fertility.
  24. Dizziness: Relaxing blood vessels lead to decreased blood pressure, which can make you feel dizzy or light-headed. Low blood sugar may also be to blame.
  25. Vivid dreams: This commonly reported sign is thought to be related to hormonal changes, but has yet to be scientifically linked.
  26. Metal Mouth: Changes in estrogen levels and sense of smell may cause some women to experience a metallic or sour taste even when they’re not eating.
  27. Melasma: Some women experience darkening areas of facial skin, which can peak in what’s known as the mask of pregnancy.
  28. 18 consecutive elevated basal body temps
  29. Missed period
  30. Positive home pregnancy test…duh

Disclaimer: I am highly skilled at convincing myself that I am pregnant. I have never been pregnant and may or may not be pregnant right now. I experienced 13 of these symptoms—each for at least 3 seconds—while writing this post.

    This is pretty amazing. Bookmarked!

      I had some of the symptoms but I menstrated but wasn’t like my every day menstruation. What could be happening.

      • Mx says:

        Hi anonymous, yes i had very short bleed not my normal 4/5 days.
        how u feeling now ? im waiting wondering whats going on with me .
        how far on r u ?

  2. Tosha says:

    Alot of people do not even think about this as been a symptom or even reference to it as a early symptom but what alerted me to the fact that I was pregnant was none of the above it was a small line that appeared on my belly called Linea Nigra. It appeared very early, not in the second phase like most professionals say, so I guess we are all different.

  3. Excessive exercise or anxiety can sometimes cause you to hyperventilate and feel faint. Although exercise can help your circulation, be careful not to overdo it if you’re feeling tired or not well. Start out slowly. If you start to feel lightheaded or dizzy while exercising, stop and lie down.

  4. Sarah Lewellen says:

    Something that is an early symptom but isn’t on the list. Acne. I had it with both my boys and one of the reasons i suspected i was pregnant again with my 3rd. Took a test and i was right. Sadly i miscarried my 3rd. but i have a lot of unruly acne again, as well as feeling really tired and napping and peeing a lot, and getting irritable. so fingers crossed im pregnant again.
    also another symptoms I’ve just remembered is always feeling thirsty.

    • Anonymous says:

      OMG i have been breaking out on my forehead like crazy & i never do – im also 2 weeks late & been feeling thirsty alot for water too im just not sure cos ive never felt this way before.

        Hey..I was wondering if you were pregnant after you left this comment?I also am experiencing symtoms and I have a irregular period.

  8. lashty fulopen says:

    everyone is so different it is difficult to determine whether or not you are pregnant before you take a HPT. I think I may be pregnant but it is too early for me to pee on a stick. Every website tells me something different which makes me unsure if I am in fact pregnant or not

  9. Sasa says:

    Hello hi !!! I’ve been feeling very weird lately , having some strange things happening to my body . We always use a condom me and my boyfriend so it happened that one time it blasted and somehow the sperms got to me ( My boyfriend doesn’t even believe that I could be pregnant by his kid because he believe that he managed to pull before the sperms could get on me ) anyways that’s not the point I am , after a 8 days I slept with him my body started acting all strange I had disturbing cramps in my tummy after I tasted alcohol , then after 3 days I had a nose bleed (nothing dramatic just clots) , then my boobs started becoming big and tender and my nipples were hurting too but they got to normal after bleeding , then suddenly a few days later I received my period before my date and it was light and blownish in color that wouldn’t even wet a liner , that bleeding took about 2 and a half day but I had cramps like something was pulling me inside then a backache of which it was a struggle to bend even after I stopped bleeding I still had cramps and backache and swollen hands Oh and I’m now sensitive to any smell I can smell anything especially food when I’m in the other room so I’m not really sure what’s going on because before the bleeding I went for a pregnancy test and it came out negative so I don’t know if I should go again and I’d get an opposite result , I’m really confused …….. !!!!!!!!!

    • esther says:

      Hi sasa, its unfortunate how d guys always believe they r experts. But unknown to them there is always a stubborn embryo that find their way in. You have two of strongest symptoms of pregnancy (tender breasts & tingly pulling feeling in navel,like cramps) then the strong smell.my sister had d signs, she was menstrating every month & even at 11wks both blood tests & ultra sound showed nothing. U shld wait for some weeks & go for a blood pregnancy test.

  17. Hannah says:

    I’ve had 22 of these symptoms almost 23 (waiting to see if my period comes) I base it on what week it should start and either two days ago or in a few day.Can I take a test before my period starts??

  18. Kawal Gill says:

    Hahaha…. I love your disclaimer….!!! 😂😂😂😂😛😛

  19. There are so many causes of back pain, that it’s hard to find a cure-
    all for it. They can not only be affected at the spinal level
    of origin, but also peripherally, at their destination, back to the spine.
    Although you cannot spread Shingles to others,
    you can spread chicken pox to people who have never had chicken pox before or who have not been vaccinated.

    hi, a week after i had sex last in mid august, i experienced massive amounts of headaches 4 days in row 1 week, same next, then it lasted a week long with sever neck pain. last month was 9 days late and then had extremely light bleeding that turned into bright red/light pink spotting then bright red and next day was light again and was gone. then probly 2 weeks later had a lot and i mean alot of white discharge, everytime i went to use the restroom and what not, more came out. took a pregnancy test about a week later, said negative. this month, my period was 2 days early but extremely light and coming out in blotches of bright red, then bit of regular red but was mostly mucus or whatever is the equivalent to discharge with bit of the regular period blood clots that sometimes come out, and the next day it was just small amounts and disappeared before it reached day 3. during this time, I’ve experienced headaches, this past weekend was migraines followed with 1 nite of vomiting; anxiety attacks, hot flashes, dizziness, some moodiness mostly irritable, backaches for the past month or so; bloating & exhaustion since august, change in appetite where hungry 1 minute and loss of appetite the next, maybe 2 lbs the most gain and lose only to gain back & lose again, mild cramps except about 3 weeks ago where cramps were painful due to a reaction from drinking vitamin water, and last constipation. now I’m experiencing nausea when I wake up as well as throughout the day, and as of today constantly rushing to the restroom and had diarrhea (tmi I know sorry). I took 2 different brand pregnancy tests, both came out negative. thinking maybe I should take a blood test Friday. if I am pregnant, I would probly be 2 months- 9 weeks pregnant yet this is as far as symptoms go that I am experiencing which is probly a lil over half of what is listed here. if I am pregnant, this is definitely quite the accidental kind, and it would be my first so not sure whether to be happy or not, I want to be, but the situation is complicated. could I still be pregnant peeps? or could it be something else?

  21. brittini mann says:

    I’ve been trying to conceive for awhile now with my last pregnancy I took many tests but didn’t know I was pregnant until I was almost three months I wonder if I could be pregnant I puked a lot of orange like I did my last pregnancy just almost two weeks ago and haven’t had my period in over a month but get sharp cramps that wake me in my sleep also I’ve lost my appetite or want to puke if I try to eat yet I have a belly and look bloated like in the v area. Is it possible I’m pregnant and should I go get blood work to be on the safe side ?

    • Anonymous says:

      I posted before, mine turned out to be a hormonal imbalance aka ghost pregnancy, just go see a doctor about it not to sound insensitive but go see ur obgyn

  22. Liz says:

    So I need some input on this.. I have always had my period on time & back in August I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend while I was on my period b/c he said you can’t get pregnant when you’re on your period (after the fact researching that I’ve found that to not be accurate). I normally start my period on the 24-25thish somtimes earlier, but never any later. I was having minor symptoms of being pregnant so my boyfriend & I thought I was & had unprotected sex numerous times.. but then I got my period Sept 2 (Never had one that late) but something inside me still thought I was pregnant.. and I’ve had my periods since, Oct 30 & November 27.. I have took numerous urine tests (maybe 5) that have come back negative & even a blood test back in late Oct that came back negative but when my mom was pregnant with all 4 of her kids pregnancy tests always would come back negative & she had her periods for a while.. but back in September I had horrible sickness at night & like 30 minutes after I woke up (nausea).. and had to take ginger pills to feel better. I’m not having any morning sickness anymore, it stopped in like mid Oct but I occasionally have bad night sickness to the point where I cant sleep. My lower back always hurts now, I have a rash on my tummy that has been there since the beginning, my nails & hair grow really fast now. I’m getting acne but Im still young so who knows with that. I have amazing smell now, my boobs have definitely gotten bigger (even my bf noticed) My breast arent sore, but my nipples use to never be sore at all & they are really sensitive now, I have very noticeable veins on feet, arms, hands, shoulder going down my breast, and slightly noticeable veins going down my stomach & noticeable veins around my abdomen.. I think I look bigger but my boyfriend said I still look skinny.. I am always tired now. I take naps for like 5 hours when I get home from my college classes, and I can never sleep at night b/c I cant get comfortable, I stress out about whether Im pregnant or not b/c I have tmj & Im suppose to take prescription ibuprofen & muscle relaxer for it but I stopped b/c I dont wanna harm my baby if Im pregnant. I am very fit but now I cant do anything at the gym without feeling totally exhausted. All I do now is walk on the treadmill lol. I am ALWAYS hungry. I am so moody & I cry all the time over everything which is so not me. I dont feel like myself anymore. I feel pregnant & I really think I am. I have no desire to be pregnant b/c Im in college & its the last thing I need right now, but everytime I try to tell myself Im crazy & that the tests came back negative it just doesnt feel right!! My boyfriend doesnt think I am at all.. he says “You’ve gotten numerous negative tests back & you’ve had 3 periods, what more do you need?” because he’s an insensitive asshole. I dont know what to do anymore & it really upsets me that my boyfriend isnt supportive & wont listen to what Im saying! Am I just crazy or what do you think?

    Please comment back, even if you dont have any advice. I have no one to talk about this with (my parents would kill me if they knew), and I’m too busy to have any real friends to talk to about it, and my boyfriend is an idiot. I just need a women that understands. Thanks.

    • Anonymous says:

      Ure not pregnant but if u must have a confirmation go see ur obgyn, she will probably tell you it’s a possible hormonal imbalance which to translate in English “you gave yourself a ghost pregnancy” when you are trying to get pregnant sometimes you want it so bad that the stress then takes a toll on your body and messes with your period.

    • Anonymous says:

      And your boyfriend isn’t insensitive, he’s right. 1 period is more than enough proof to tell you that you’re not pregnant. If you really are trying to get pregnant talk with him about it first. Otherwise use a condom and go on birth control. Shouldn’t bring a baby into this world if you both aren’t ready and stable security wise by security I mean both your relationship and financially.

    Wow I just noticed today all my veins showing around my torso/abdomen(very different) and about 10 minutes ago I had the weirdest metalic taste in my mouth. Ive also had a very sensitive stomach, gas, diarrhea for the last 2 days and slight nausea when I woke up today. I thought it was all in my head. I am however only 3-7 days pregnant! Thank you for this post!

  25. aysha says:

    I have almost all of them I think I’m three weeks pregnant but I haven’t taken the test yet

  26. I have all those signs listed above but am just confused,I was supposed to have my periods on 17th of june and now I count it to be a missed period because its 1st july but I haven’t gotten my periods yet. I checked for almost 7times but results were all negative. I feel something in my lower right part of the belly and crampings but seroiusly can’t tell what’s gooing on with me.

  27. Sarah Forbush says:

    I have every sympyom – constipation. Ttc for 6 mos now, had what i beleive was implantation bleeding 8 days ago, exactly one week before my period was due, since then ive been progresively feeling run down,crampy, and all of the above. Faint + on hpt.

  28. Corie says:

    Another symptom that isn’t on any of the lists, but was my earliest sign (even before missing a period): Severe wrist pain. I have regularly held jobs which used repetitive wrist motion, and never had a problem, when suddenly my left wrist would hurt so severely I had difficulty working. Not suspecting pregnancy (we had been trying for months with no luck, so we took this month off, only had sex once, to try and reduce the pressure on ourselves to just make this baby already!!!) – anyway, not suspecting pregnancy, I bought a high quality wrist brace, which did little to alleviate the general pain, but at least allowed me to perform my duties at work. I eventually was so sore I googled carpal tunnel syndrome to find ways to alleviate the associated pain.

    Although I have never seen a pregnancy symptom list include carpal tunnel, EVERY carpal tunnel site I found associated it commonly with pregnancy.

    A week later the hot flashes started, and I had a positive pregnancy test, even before my missed period (and another two weeks later for confirmation).

    I am now 8 weeks along and very sick, but looking forward to meeting my new little one in another 7 months. 😍

    Z it possible of getting pregnent with out breaking of vagina??

    • Anonymous says:

      If you mean “Is it possible to get pregnant without having sex?” Then your absolute answer is No. To get pregnant, sex (and penetration) is of course needed. It doesn’t happen any other way.

  32. Dulcia says:

    I have a lot of these symptoms! Intense dreams, fatigue, dark areoles, missed period, mild abdominal cramping, loss of appetite, I know I’m not starting my period bc usually I eat a lot a week before. Today broke my heart. I got a clear blue digital pregnancy test and it came out negative..😢 I have irregular periods but I really believed I was pregnant. I used ovulation calendars/ predictors but idk… I’m really bummed bc even my husband believed I was. Two nights ago I threw up twice and felt fine after that. Haven’t had a problem since. Could it be that I can’t get pregnant?

  33. precious says:

    Am having cramps pain after my period very tired powerless what does it means with a bad discharge my periods were very light

  34. Reblogged this on Little Ledger and commented:
    Loved this post!

    Particularly the spot on comment about convincing yourself of having these symtoms.

    Every single thing be it a flutter or a twinge (my heartbeat sped up for 3 seconds…I googled it!) has me wishing its a symptom.

    Heres hoping some of these actually fit with you, if so huge congratulations. I will take myself and my sudden shade of green to the other room!

Well I had it for 6 days I always have it for 7. Weird. Well after 1 week I have felt like crap I’m sick, I’ve been peeing more and I have been having heartburn like crazy. I’ve been getting sick eating a lot and just been plain tired. And now it’s 21st and I started cramping and it was weird well I started bleeding brown and I shouldn’t have 2 periods a months that’s really rare but I do have irregular periods. Am I pregnant? Or is something going on?

  40. Elsie says:

    i had all the 30signs a week after sex and my period was late by 2 days and i couldn’t even wear a bra, had lower abdominal cramps and had bad backaches and pullings i was drinking 6 litres of water daily and the bathroom was my friend, could even smell something outside when i was inside and the sleepless nights and cramps and then on day 33 when i was about to go to bed and after peeing i wiped an there was blood, my heart sank cz my bf was so excited about this baby, it wasnt heavy but this morning i was really dark heavy blood but im still moody and my breats are sore and the thirst isnt going away at all. i am not sure whats going on anymore.

    • Elsie says:

      i forgot to add something, i had sex 2 weeks before my period was due and it came 2 days late and im still cramping, not sure whether its period pains or cramos

  41. Corona says:

    I have all these but urine test dont work on me or blood only can tell by ultrasound i was 6 months before i found out with first and 8 months the second i dont get the pregnant tummy ! Im pretty dang sure iam but going to dr friday i hope it is positve

  42. Sciver says:

    This is the only thing I have found that seems somewhat relevant to what I’m experiencing. I hope someone can help me. It’s driving me nuts. My periods have always been irregular. But this month my period only lasted a day (Oct. 23 – Oct. 24). That has never happened to me before. I have back pain, horrible headaches everyday, nausea everyday, constipation, white discharge (sorry if tmi), I have cramps that are coming and going all day, bloating, swollen, tired. I have had a lot of heartburn and a couple days ago I tasted metal and dirt. But did not crave it. I go to the restroom a lot but I do not have tender or swollen breasts. It always feels like I’m going to start my period but never do.
    I also have anxiety so a lot of these issues confuse me because they are also relevant to that as well.
    But I find it hard to believe I’m preggo because my husband had a vasectomy last June.
    I guess I’m confused on what to think here.
    Every test I take is neg. Am I just paranoid, stressed or what?

  43. Tyler says:

    I have aome of these symptoms even though im the male in this relationship… My girlfriend is somewhat indenial of the probable. 99.9 percent chance that shes pregnant even with the weight gain in tummy boobs and butt and mood swings and food cravingsnin middle of night etc the list goes on… She knows she feels pregnant but scared too take a test as tho this isnt thee best time but we both want another child and we both have two daughters…
    She could be anywhere from 3 weeks too 3 months as for weve had unprotected sex multiple times a day for the last 8 months and if she had any bleeding durin period cycle it was during rough hard crazy sex and lasted only a few days but she had a light pink spotting known as implantation and theres really know chance shes not pregnant wich scares us but the sex gets too good too pull out we both always cum at the same time so who wants too stoo and sacrifice both our nuts right?
    What do i do?

    • Ngladden says:

      Wow…If you guys wanna act adult enough to do the deed then be adult enough to take responsibility for the consequences. She needs to take a test regardless of how good of a time it is for you guys and begin taking care of herself and the baby…it is SLIGHTLY POSSIBLE she is not tho not as likely as the other outcome bit if you guys are lucky then she needs to get on some sort of birth control… no child should have to suffer of being unwanted because of the irresponsibility of its parentz…

    I have aome of these symptoms even though im the male in this relationship… My girlfriend is somewhat indenial of the probable. 99.9 percent chance that shes pregnant even with the weight gain in tummy boobs and butt and mood swings and food cravingsnin middle of night etc the list goes on… She knows she feels pregnant but scared too take a test as tho this isnt thee best time but we both want another child and we both have two daughters…
    She could be anywhere from 3 weeks too 3 months as for weve had unprotected sex multiple times a day for the last 3 months and if she had any bleeding durin period cycle it was during rough hard crazy sex and lasted only a few days but she had a light pink spotting known as implantation and theres really know chance shes not pregnant wich scares us but the sex gets too good too pull out we both always cum at the same time so who wants too stoo and sacrifice both our nuts right?
    What do i do?

    Ive been having what could be early pregnancy symptoms . My stomach has been a little bigger , bloated sort of , nausea ( made worse by some smells ) , my breasts and nipples have been larger and tender , my nipples have been slightly darker with bumps secreting small amounts of clear liquid , frequent urination and headaches , yeast infection , period is about 6 days late but my last period was light spotting for only two days , noticably more tired , food cravings , constipation and diarrhea at different times . I have stomach ulcers &&’ ive also read that worrying about being pregnant can make your body think you are pregnant . I dont know how reliable that is though . I dont have access to a home pregnancy or doctor pregnancy testing blood or urine for at least two weeks . I wouldnt say this is stressing me out but i would like to know as soon as possible and dont want to wait two weeks . The earlier i know the sooner i could start taking care of a pregnancy . I was wondering if you could please give an opinion on whether you think im pregnant , or if these sypmtoms are being caused by my ulcers , stress , or just all in my head . Thank you .

      For a lot of these ppl on here seems like it’s jus all in their head…However u have not yet started your period? I haven’t heard of ulcers causing a lot of those symptoms but since it may take u up to 2 weeks to get a test done the only thing I know to tell u tht can MAYBE give u the slightest clue is look up how to MAKE home prego tests…Good luck

    I have a rather complicated situation, I’d really appreciate it if anyone with a similar experience could reply! I just had knee surgery about 10 days ago, my period was due 9 days ago but still has not arrived. I’ve heard that surgery can cause a delay but I am experiencing many symptoms I can’t ignore. How can you know if your period is delayed due to surgery or pregnancy? Normally my skin is great but all of a sudden, since about 5 days ago my face has been breaking out. I have nausea in the mornings when I wake up and the worst gas that I’ve had as long as I remember. I’m also constipated but again I don’t know if this is due to surgery or not!! My bf and I have had unprotected sex during my fertile period this month so (fingers crossed) its pregnancy signs. I’ve also had hot flushes, creamy discharge and sore breasts. Before my period I always get sore nipples but never have I had sore breasts, certainly not like this!! I have very pale skin (just about translucent – gotta love albinism) which means my veins always show, even on my breasts, so this isn’t much of a sign for me. I’ve also been having incredibly vivid dreams (woke up from one such dream to find I’d been crying during it!) and have been waking up to nosebleeds. Unfortunately, due to my surgery, I cannot walk, let alone drive and have not been able to go and buy a test. But with nausea, vomiting, gas, constipation, sore breasts, vivid dreams, hot flushes, creamy and abundant cm and nosebleeds I’m left wondering: Is it likely I am pregnant or could this all be due to having quite invasive surgery?

    I’m 16. I haven’t had a lot of sexual intercourse, and if yes, all have been with a condom and extra caution, as to check if it breaks during or after, which it never has. I’ve been presenting some nausea, heart rate increase, and my belly is rather bloated. No changes in my appetite, or anything else, but I do have some abnormal vaginal discharges. I don’t know when my next period was supposed to start for the fact that I’m highly irregular and it took me over 3-4 months once. Anyone know? I’m genuinely scared.

  58. WonderinMAMA35 says:

    I’m experiencin 19 out of the 30 symptoms, but so far my HPT and Blood tests come up Negative. Can this mean I am pregnant? Or because I went off BC 3 months ago? Had sex about a month ago and he did let it out inside, twice. Or would these be symptoms from Hypothyroidism? I do have 3 kids and I know for my first 2 children the tests came out negative until I was 3 months in. Not sure for I think this is making me crazy, also wondering if this is all in my head. I did notice frequent urination, constipation, diarrhea, acne, sore lower back, mood swings, one day period (light) so apparently that’s spotting. Blood on when I wipe after I pee, but no actual blood flow like a period, fatigue, change in appetite, smells that make me want to gag, headaches/migraines, bloated.. I don’t know what to think? Any advice?

  59. I read that 9 out of 15 women that get a urine test at the doctor comes up negative every time up until about week 13 or even more but I have hives I pee a lot and I’m tired my lower back hurts and I cannot for the life of me get comfortable. I’m shaky all over and my buttox feel like I have been doing squats. I don’t know if I’m pregnant or not I always convince myself I am when I’m not but this time it feels real. I had my symptoms before I knew they we’re symptoms. I’m dizzy and my dreams are more often and I can remember them clearly. I get angry fast. But I don’t know. Can someone help me fins out if these are symptoms or just my mind or just a cold. My nose is also stuffed all the time. And my acne is bad. My ha D’s and feet are swollen been like this a few days. Help?

Even with cramps.even with clots…whether it was first month, for a few months, for 5 months, for the whole pregnancy….and I’ve read plenty of forums and blogs from other women that have had this happen…

      Btw i did get my period end of june into beginning of july(julys period); this has been happening since end of dec til beginning of jan(jans period); and every month since.
      It didnt last as long though and was a lil weird..and light on a day it shouldn’t have been.

        A friend had picked me up a test..but from the dollar store( though ppl say they have worked before..i dont entirely trust em); took it around 3am..came out negative..but im still going to the doctors….and they say urine, and even blood tests, at the doctors or hospital, can also come out false negative…to ask for a transvaginal ultrasound, if ur not that far along.. If you’re like 6-8 weeks regular ultrasound may be ok..but still request the transvaginal one as well.

  88. Brianna says:

    Hello,
    So me and my fiancé are TTC, my period is due tomorrow, Wednesday.
    I have taken a pregnancy test the last 4-5 days (Since it says on the box 6 days soon than your missed period)
    I already have an almost 4 year old son, so I have done this before but to TTC for him was a one time try, piece of cake. So I have never dealt with a difficult time with TTC. (my son and the baby I am trying conceive now have 2 different fathers)
    Well all my pregnancy test have come back negative.
    I don’t feel pregnant.
    But I have noticed, after TTC I was cramping REALLY bad (not anymore), now I notice my areola’s are getting darker, I am having a mix between egg white stretchy/thick and creamy discharge the past 2 days, an appetite increase, more of a sex drive, can’t sleep because I keep waking up to either having to pee or having “I’m pregnant” dreams. I don’t know if it’s my mind playing games on me or if I am truly pregnant. Any suggestions? Or just wait a couple more days to test again?

    With my son, I knew I was pregnant just a week and a half after trying for him. The sign that gave it away was my boobs hurt so bad, like puberty all over again. Didn’t even need to pee on a test, I just knew.
    This time around I got nothing & I am feeling very discourage like it won’t happen again. :/

    Help?

  89. Brynlee Hale says:

    Hi! My name is Brynlee. My boyfriend and I had sex a week after my period ended and I’m not sure when I ovulated. Anyways, we pulled out and I swear he didn’t ejaculate in me, I saw him pull out and everything, but we did do it multiple times. Well my period is due in two days and I’m having zero pms symptoms. But my nipples are really sore and areolas are dark and defiantly larger. I’m having middle back pain. More veins everywhere, mainly in my hips and boobs and legs. Dizziness and headaches as well as quick twinges in left ovary. Heartburn and lack of appetite. Sleeping for hours and still being tired. Also, can smell everything. Could I possibly be pregnant?

    Hi everyone for the past week to 2 week and a half maybe more I have been feeling more exhausted than ever have had the weirdest cravings a bit different then the last two pregnancies I have had. Then I have been getting nauseaous and throwing up like I did in my first pregnancy so I am thinking if I am pregnant this might be a girl because with my second pregnancy I hardly threw up and had boys. My body feels different I thought it was ovulation but it isn’t I have missed two periods and only bleed lightly. I am super hungry so I am thinking this could be twins again oh my I have been hungry every hour and a hard time doing the number 2 plus peeing too much. Does it sound like I am pregnant? And how many weeks do you all think I could be? Maybe I could be having fraternal twins boy and girl?
