Pregnancy Test

We’ve listed some of the most common symptoms of pregnancy below. You may begin to suspect you are pregnant very soon after the baby is conceived, or you may not have any pregnancy symptoms until much later. Finding out if you are pregnant is easy.  Home pregnancy tests can confirm your pregnancy on the day your period is due, and some can give a positive result even earlier. Alternatively, your pregnancy can be confirmed by your midwife or doctor. 

Missed Period

If your cycle is regular, a missed period can be an obvious sign that you are pregnant. However, if you’re not planning to get pregnant, you may not be watching out for your periods.  Or, if you have irregular periods, you may not notice it. 

Tender breasts

Breast tenderness is one of the earliest signs of pregnancy.  When you’re pregnant, your breasts can feel sore, tingly, swollen and sensitive. The large amounts of oestrogen and progesterone that your body produces in pregnancy cause these breast changes.

Any Time of the Day Sickness

Nausea is probably the most common symptom associated with pregnancy. It is a misnomer to call it morning sickness, because you may feel nauseous at anytime of the day, not just in the morning.  However, you may feel worse in the morning, when your stomach is empty.

Constant Tiredness

If you are feeling overwhelming fatigue for no apparent reason, it could be a sign that you’re pregnant.  When you are pregnant, you experience a dramatic rise in hormone levels that help maintain the pregnancy and help your baby grow. The hormonal changes as well as the physical changes in your body are the most likely cause of constant tiredness. Your fatigue will most likely go away at around 12 to 14 weeks.

Needing to empty your bladder often

As your uterus grows to accommodate the growing embryo, it fights for space with your bladder.  It means that your bladder has less capacity to store fluid; therefore, it tells you to empty it often.


Vague, menstrual-like cramps are a common early pregnancy symptom. Cramps are probably caused by the uterus growing and are not a cause for concern. A hot pack may help provide some welcome relief.


The hormone progesterone is responsible for you feeling bloated in early pregnancy. Progesterone causes you to retain water and can make your abdomen feel uncomfortable, bloated and enlarged.

Hi Tarra - most pregnancy tests cannot detect pregnancy until you are at least due for your period (and usually need a few more days to be accurate). Good luck

Just wondering if anyone else has had a fluttering feeling in their lower abdomen as an early pregnancy symptom. I've had some minor cramps and shocking insomnia also. I've never felt this fluttering feeling before. Although i'm not even due for my period yet.

Jan 14, 2012 7:37pm [ 6 ]

I've been having cramps, been feeling very tired lately, and sore in the breasts, i am due for my period but it hasnt come. Then today i had a little bleed but that was it.. I dont know what to think or do. Can u please help me

Feb 2, 2012 1:51am [ 7 ]

i've recently been feeling a bit "under the weather" and had symptoms of tender nipples, and the sensation of having a full bladder all the time, but i also have the implanon in, its due to be changed in 5 months, could there be a chance that i'm pregnant???

Feb 13, 2012 9:32am [ 8 ]

I had been off the pill for nearly two months. I downloaded a "period" diary application, to help keep track of when to expect it. The last time I got it, was 3 days before I was meant to, now I am down to the wire this period. Waiting.. My boobs are killing me to sleep on.. They hurt mainly on the outside.. And I have been getting tired around 2:30pm every day for the last week or so.. I felt a little sick a couple of days ago, but that was not long after I ate, so I don't know if that actually has any relevance!I have just put all my money into a savings account that I can't touch, thinking that I wouldn't need it until my next pay day, which is in 2 days, so I can't even buy a pregnancy test.. what do I do?

Feb 18, 2012 9:21am [ 9 ]

this is our first month of not notting (not trying to not get pregnant)and I am four days late (which never happens). i haven't had many symptoms except constantly thinking each little cramp is my period and worrying each time i have ham, or a glass of wine. I have had a mild headache and feel a little dizzy from time to time. I'm waiting for one more day for a test, but how do you control the mind games?

Jun 6, 2012 8:02am [ 10 ]

I'm Anna and I'm 18 had sex about 10 days ago with the boyfriend. My period is not due till next Thursday a week from now but iv been having blackish brown blood coming out also bad cramping. Any possible way I could be pregnant?

Aug 1, 2012 9:29pm [ 11 ]

Also im on the pill, been tired, had cramps, nauseous and trying to throw up now ive have read that alot of these symptoms are related to before your menstrual cycle but ive never had them. Now ive taken a pregnancy test it was neg but testing again in a few days? im confused am i pregnant?

I had sex before one of my most fertile day. my period is not due until 3 more days . I've had some pregnancy signs, like sore breast (mostly below my armpit) , mild headaches , feeling a little nauseous & I've been A LOT more tired than usual. But I had this uncomfortable feeling in my bladder like theres constant pressure on it. Itmostly feels uncomfortable after I get done peeing it doesn't burn when I pee, or after any help?

Mar 9, 2014 8:46am [ 15 ]

I have missed my period 3/4 days now, I feel very nausea have done a home pregnancy test and it's negative. could i still be pregnant?

Jul 17, 2014 2:46pm [ 16 ]

So I'm 14 days late and have taken pregnancy test at day 10(-), my boobs aren't that sore but I have random nausea especially after I eat. I've been tired, with pressure in my uterus area. No signs of period coming. I did have sex on the highest fertile day, but we used the pull out method. I have been under stress no more than usual , so I don't know if I'm late because of stress or I'm pregnant...hmm...

Jul 27, 2014 3:56pm [ 17 ]

Sep 5, 2014 7:04am [ 20 ]

Hello, strange question. I have had my tubes tide for 4 years. Recently I was late on my period and when I finally did start I was only on it for 1 day. Now I am feeling some "fluttering" or "spasms" in my lower abdomen. Could I be pregnant? ?

Oct 16, 2014 3:46pm [ 21 ]

Hi I am Chelsea and I am 23 years old. I was due for my period Oct 11th. Still no sign. I keep track of my period so they are usually pretty steady. I just got put on Topomax so my question is...could that be an issue? I just got put on it 3 days before my period so i wouldnt think it would effect it. But I am also feeling fluttering. other than that no symptoms of pregnancy or period at all. Thought??

Nov 20, 2014 12:59pm [ 22 ]

Not sure if it affects your period but find out if you are pregnant and get off that drug ASAP if you are. Here is what it says: If you take TOPAMAX® during pregnancy, your baby has a higher risk for birth defects called cleft lip and cleft palate. These defects can begin early in pregnancy, even before you know you are pregnant. There may be other medicines to treat your condition that have a lower chance of birth defects. All women of childbearing age should talk to their healthcare providers about using other possible treatments instead of TOPAMAX®. If the decision is made to use TOPAMAX®, you should use effective birth control (contraception) unless you are planning to become pregnant. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant while taking TOPAMAX®. You and your healthcare provider should decide if you will continue to take TOPAMAX® while you are pregnant. Metabolic acidosis may have harmful effects on your baby. Talk to your healthcare provider if TOPAMAX® has caused metabolic acidosis during your pregnancy.

Dec 17, 2014 3:35pm [ 24 ]

okay, i am 20 years old and engaged to the man ive been with for 3 years. we are both excited about starting our lives together and having a big family someday but im worried that someday might be very very soon. i have been experiencing pregnancy like symptoms as of late and im not 100% sure if this is legitimate or if im experiencing a "phantom pregnancy". here are my symptoms 1) tired all the time even after sleeping for almost 12 straight hours 2) swollen feet and soreness in my feet and ankles 3) sore breasts (now, they always get sore during my period but that brings me to) 4) not a missed or late period but one that has been on and off for the last three weeks. ill bleed for two days stop spot bleed five days repeat. 5) a weird fluttering in my stomach that is something i have NEVER experienced before. i have not experienced nausea but my libido is crazy high right now and ive been incredibly emotional these past 2 months emot?

Hello. I am in between periods and have been feeling flutters and minor cramps. Feel as if im pregnant but every test comes back negative. I have had two other children and this was how I felt before but im not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dec 21, 2014 4:38pm [ 26 ]

My period came 8 days late last month and was due on the 18th of December and still hasn't come. I had sex 5 days before ovulation and now I feel nauseous, bloating, little fluttery feelings in my lower abdomen but I have a loss of appetite and diarrhea and no breast tenderness or growth. Honestly I just feel like I'm pregnant because my body feels so weird but I'm not sure... Any suggestions ??

Hi, my name is Jackie

I never got my period for November and still nothing for December, I took a pregnancy test a couple days after Thanksgiving when I realized I missed my period.... It came out negative. I've my breast itch, I'm having a lot of lower back pain, lower abdominal cramps, pains in my sides(kind of a numbing pain), increased appetite, stomach flutters, tiredness, I'm moody, emotional, heightened sex drive... I'm just not feeling myself these last few weeks and I don't know why.. My boyfriend he lives I'm pregnant, I would love for that to be true, we've been trying for a while now to have a baby, but haven't been successful, maybe up until now. Should I take another home test even though the one I took in November was negative and do any of my symptoms sound like I could be pregnant? Please help...

Jan 24, 2015 4:46pm [ 28 ]

Hi there:) I've recently come off the pill in Dec 14 and this is my 2nd month ttc. I had my normal withdrawal bleed less than a week after stopping. Then towards the end of the month about 28 day cycle I had another. I believe I felt my ovulation around the 10/01/15, but on 18/01 I've had cramping and spasms since then. Also heavy tender breasts, some sensitive to smell, tired, frequent loo visits. I've done a pregnancy test and it was negative. Is it just my body becoming normal after the pill or too early to test? I'm so confused atm :)

Feb 15, 2015 2:51pm [ 29 ]

I am 28 years old and I have 3 kids of my own. my youngest is 3 and it has been sometime now since my last pregnancy. But I have every symptom listed on here and when I take a test it says negative. I have had pepole tell me to do a blood test and it will tell me. But I don't know why the test is telling me I am not pregnant when the blood test will. Can someone give me info about that please.

Mar 1, 2015 10:04pm [ 30 ]

Hey please help me the last time I've been getting ALL of the pregnancy symptoms was around 3 weeks ago it went for as long as 2 or 3 weeks. I wasn't sure if i were pregnant or sick but the symptoms now come and go. I don't know the exact day my period would come but it came on the week it should come, it lasted from Saturday and finished on the coming Wednesday, but i had no period like pains in my abdominal area not one single cramp. after it finished i started getting period pains again but i don't have it as bad as before i don't go toilet as much as before either i did the calculator too see if i have conceived, it says I should be at least 6 weeks pregnant. i did 2 HPT and both came back Negative I don't know whats going on i need help..

Mar 18, 2015 7:36am [ 31 ]

I am having some of the same issues. My lmp was 3/1/15 but a couple of days after my period was over, I started experiencing tingling, and soreness in my breast and also leakage from my boobs when squeezed and it hasn't stopped for a whole week now. I had my tubes tied with clipping 6+ years ago after having my last son. Either I'm pregnant or I'm having some really weird hormonal issues. I'm also having fluttering in my stomach as well. I feel weird explaining this to anyone because of having my tubes tied but I don't know what else is going on..... ughhh

Mar 26, 2015 9:06am [ 32 ]

hey guys! So my husband and I are not trying for a baby but we had a a couple of.. "accidents" :) one day right before my last period and the other a few days after my period. I have no idea when my ovulation is.. and all of my periods are only 3 days long. This was 2 and 3 weeks ago. I have been EXTREMELY gassy for the past week with what feels like a bubble in my lower abdomen.. I had mild cramps that lasted a couple of days mostly staying to the left side in one spot. And now my lower abdomen feels like there is a butterfly/bubble factory going on and it just won't stop! It's been fluttering for the past few days straight. I have no other signs except occasional nausea and extremely dull. Any thoughts? We now definitely have our hopes up high but it's a little too early to test for the accident right after my period. :)

Apr 3, 2015 11:20pm [ 33 ]

Kristi, I am in the same boat. LMP was 3/1 and I'm late with no sign of AF. We weren't actively trying either. I'm curious to see what happens. Good luck to you. Hunni

Apr 5, 2015 11:40am [ 34 ]

Hi All. I missed my period last month but throughout the whole month I was having cramps I just waited to see when I was to see blood but just never happened. This is the first week of the month and I have been feeling nauseous, I had only vomited once the first day this all started but since then i have only been feeling nauseous. I have not gone to see my dr as yet but could i be pregnant?

Apr 5, 2015 11:43pm [ 35 ]

Could I be pregnant if I don't have sore boobs, but have had discharge in the past two weeks, bloated, sickness throughout the day, tiredness and no period, but I also suffer from polycystic ovaries? My period is late and I had sex in the right window of ovulation ?

Apr 10, 2015 1:33pm [ 36 ]

My last period was at the end of February and theyre never this late. My boyfriend and I had sex a few times since and i spotted after we finished. My boobs arent sore just during intercourse i was sensitive inside. I had one blood clot on March.26 and have been spotting (pink and brownish in colour) I felt sick to my stomach a few weeks ago but now I have no appetite but force myself to eat. I have gotten pregnant twice before but lost the first one due to a miscarriage then the second was an etopic which I lost my right ovary. I hope im pregnant but scared to get my hopes up again so im waiting to take a pregnancy test...

I've been having cramps since the day i was supposed to have my periods( 24 Aug), my boobs are still a bit tender just not sore any more and i get this butterflies like feeling in my stomach. i am freaking out. i was also considering stress could be causing the delay due to test season at school. please share your views.

Oct 1, 2015 9:17am [ 61 ]

Hi me and my boyfriend had sex while I was practically off my period but I was heavy spotting and a few days later as well. My period was 3 days long, I was a day late and Although I'm sometimes late, I've never heavily spotted after my period. About 15 days before I'm supposed to start my period for next month I experienced this weird cramping in my ovaries. I had faint pink and slimy discharge that lasted a few times I wiped. Now 13 days before my period my boobs are hurting, I wake up and need to eat before I throw up, I'm tired, lazy, and I get headaches. My boobs have never hurt this soon before a period, if it was ovulation blood I was having, I've never ever experienced it in my 21 years of life. Just wondering if someone can help me and if this sounds like I'm pregnant how soon should I test?

Oct 2, 2015 6:58am [ 62 ]

I had sex on 2 of my ovulation day and 3 days later i got a severe pain in my lower tummy.I did a pregnancy test but its negative I feel so sick I feel so pregnant but my test was negative :( any answerrs

It randomly started with me. Also, I have an odd smell coming from my vagina. But it's not a fishy smell or bad smell. Thanks.

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 5 days before my period was due. 3 days after I started to feel nauseous, and sick to my stomach. The day before my period was due I experienced brownish spotting and some bad cramps and back pain. The day after my period was due I had light bleeding and cramps that stopped that night. Is there a chance that I may be pregnant?

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 2 days after my fertile window. I took the MAP 18 hours after I started to feel nauseous, and sick to my stomach. My period was 3 days late and I some bad cramps and back pain. I had my period for a full week but it was lighter than usual at the end. A week after my period ended, I'm feeling nauseous and exhausted. I took 3 pregnancy tests a week after my period and they were all negative. Is there a chance that I may be pregnant?

My boyfriend and I have sex every other day or so and have been for about 3 months. I was on birth control previously for at the most 5 years. As of now begrinning yesterday I had a huge headache with nausea and I took a nap and woke up in the evening with nausea a lot worse. Today I had a slight headache..barely there but have had nausea all day long. I have cramping, feeling of having to pee alot, but maybe due to drinking a lot of liquids, for the past week or more I have been been getting terribly hungry...like I'll eat a big meal and be starving 2 or so hours later..the hunger has woke me out of sleep several times. A couple nights ago I woke up at 4am and was bright eyed and bushy tailed and starving so I went and ate and went back to sleep an hour later. I was supposed to begin my period today and I took a pregnancy test and it said not pregnant. Should I test again or am I pregnant? Anything will help!

Oct 17, 2015 12:35am [ 68 ]

my last true period ended 6th.August. I was due again 29th which lasted 3rd.Sept. had some bleeding but couldn't really say it was 'normal'. I have not had my projected end of Sept period and still waiting for a period to begin now 6 weeks late!! I have done 4 home pregnancy tests which all came back negative. I keep having lower tummy pain and cramps, and my breast have started feeling tender, and feeling a bit sicky, over the last 3 days I've been extremely exhausted with dizzy spells. I don't want to go to the DR and waste their time. But could I be pregnant?

Any help would be useful, thanks...

Hi, as of now I am on implanon (even though I have heard of people getting pregnant on it). I had my period about 2 weeks and for maybe 5 days very heavy.. a week after I got off my period I started to feel these spasms on my left ovary. At first they were small flutters once every 20 minutes or so but it has got progressivly worse. It is ALWAYS fluttering. There is really any pain and if there is it's only a slight pinch... Could I be pregnant? A cyst? Should I go to the doctor?

Oct 25, 2015 1:54am [ 76 ]

Hi all, Okay so this month i had a bit of a hard time. My period was 9 days late. Of course I was scared but i got over it and was like ok maybe im pregnant. well on day ten i started my period. It hurt worse than usual so bad I had to leave work early. Then i puked, well dry heaved, because I had an empty stomach. I am scared something is wrong, maybe a cyst or a miscarriage. i do not have insurance at the time. I am in the process I meet with the salesman the 1st of november. I just need advice on what to do. I am not bleeding like normal, its very light i took three test they all said negative, but were also the dollar tests. I also got dizzy during my episode friday. Im nauseated as i type this out, but i am no longer cramping. any and all advice is appreciated.

Nov 10, 2015 4:08am [ 78 ]

I have had all these but my tubes have been tied for almost 5 years. I have 2 kids already. I just feel wrong I thought maybe it was my period getting ready to start but I'm almost a week late! My last period was short. My husband thinks it's in my head but I know what I feel. Should I take a test or give it a little more time? I keep trying to put it out of my mind but every little flutter is so strong.

My last period started on 10/24/15, I have had sex numerous times since then, the earliest was on 10/31/15. Ever since 11/3 I have had off and on cramping, my breasts are tender and heavier than normal, I am tired. We are trying to conceive, and I am wondering if I could be pregnant. I wouldn't think that I could be having menstrual cramping so early, as that has NEVER happened before. I sometimes, if at all, will get cramping within a day of my period starting, but that is not scheduled until around the 21st of November.

Nov 12, 2015 7:40pm [ 80 ]

Hey ladies, I alst got my periods on the 1st of Oct 2015 and that was my normal 28th day cycle, and this month I'm only experiencing periods signs but no periods and m on day 43 cycle...am I pregnant?

Nov 17, 2015 5:56am [ 81 ]

I have no clue. The chances of me being pregnant is very likely. But I'm not sure if I am or not. I've been more moody lately and not understand why? I'm always tired from school and chores and taking care of my 1 year old son. But recently I noticed I'm producing milk and my stomach itches badly in one spot. But I can't tell because my periods are irregular since I got the depo shot. I stopped taking the depo shot a while back but my periods haven't gone back to normal? So I'm completely drawing a blank here.

Nov 19, 2015 3:48am [ 82 ]

I am a 18 year old,had unprotected sex on my first time, I took the Plan B with the time. I have been Sexually active, and lately I have this twitching feeling in my stomach. why is this happening.

Hi I'm 9days delayed and I did try the test twice and both cme out neg.I feel.a lit cramps but no sore breast,tender or tingly,pls need ur opinion

Nov 23, 2015 4:38pm [ 84 ]

Hello, so I missed my period last month but started the first of this month (I have irregular periods) but it only lasted about 4 days and then a week later I had light spotting I've read it could be implantation but if I had my period then it couldn't be that but I've been so bloated for a week nowand gasy. I've been nauseated and so hungry I've had white discharge and sensitive breast pretty much I've had every pregnancy symptom besides the urge to pee every second. I've had sex with my bf a lot and we are usually careful he never finishes inside and I've read pre cum is usually blanks so is there any chance I could be pregnant or could it be something else? It's still too early to test so that's why I'm asking plus I have a three year old but with him I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 2 1\2 months

Dec 2, 2015 5:01am [ 85 ]

I haven't had a period in 26 days. I have tender breast, bloating and mild cramping. I've taken a pregnancy test the week before and it came back negative.I have food aversions and am liking food that I hated previously. Am I pregnant?

Hi I'm chelseea I'm 23. Here lately my breasts have been tender to the touch and my stomach feels like there are bubbles in it and just feels awkward. Could this be me about to start my period or pregnancy?

Jan 27, 2016 12:49pm [ 89 ]

Hi I need some advice, I had unprotected sex twice with my boyfriend on the 1st Jan 2016, my ovulation date, as the first day of my last period was 18th Dec 2015. I began to get all these pregnancy symptoms 1 week afterwards, cramping, swollen uterus, breast sore and swollen, nipples sore, sore lower back and cramping in the right leg and hip. The second week I had nausea, and on the 9dpo, I began to cramp really bad and started spotting of light pinkish. 4 days after my spotting, my period was due, I started to bleed but only for 1 day with lots of tissues falling out, I've never got this before. I took numerous pregancy test with all negative results, though only one test came up with a faint positive then disappeared. I then went to the doctors for a blood test on the 18dpo, I was starting to bleed lightly pinkish again a little like I thought it was my period coming on, though I decided to take the blood test anyways. On that 17 and 18dpo, I wiped with a tissue, it was watery pinkish, nothing falling onto the pad. The blood test results came back and my doctor said I'm not pregnant, though my doctor suggests I take another test one week later or wait til my next period on the 15th February. It's the third week, and I am feeling nauseous and had a little cramping. My doctor says it's all just stress or from something else. Can someone please tell me if some blood test can go wrong? or Would my symptoms be from something else?

Feb 1, 2016 11:41pm [ 90 ]

Feb 6, 2016 4:03am [ 91 ]

I am a 40 year old mother of 6 children my youngest is 7. I remarried a younger man. I am always regular and I have missed one period. I have breast tenderness vomiting and.I have been unusually sleepy and moody sadness.Increased sex drive. I think I may be pregnant though when I am stressed I vomit.I have not tested yet because I don't want to test to early and get a false negative.

Feb 12, 2016 3:31pm [ 92 ]

Hello. I am 56 days late haven't took a pregnancy test I have lost of apatite and lower stomach feels weired. Been feeling cramping but no period. I started having irregular periods since last year. Husband and I are TTC. For over a year now but no luck.

Mar 4, 2016 3:48am [ 93 ]

hi i am wondering if anyone is able to help me i finished my period 12 days ago i am currently on a contraceptive but for the past few days my breats and nipples have been feeling very heavy and very sore i have a mild cramping feeling in my left side as soon as i sit it runs down to like where your ovary sits i feel very bloated in the morning and a little bit of nausea nothing unberable and very emotional i have had one child and never really had these symptoms so early do you think i could be pregnant ?

Mar 4, 2016 12:27pm [ 94 ]

I'm not too sure when my period is due or when my last one was for that matter as I usually just bleed as soon as I stop the pill. I control my period using contraception. I haven't been taking my pill for a few weeks now and my partner and I had sex the other night without using protection. I have been having this fluttering feeling in my stomach, I took a test just then and it came back negative but again, I'm not too sure when my period is due so I may have taken it too early. I have been noticing a pink tinge when I wipe after peeing but not enough blood to be a period. This would be my first baby if I am pregnant so I'm a little worried, I don't wanna drink soft drinks, energy drinks or alcohol yet just to be safe but I just don't know what to do. What would you suggest?

Mar 24, 2016 6:46pm [ 95 ]

Hi, I have had 2 headaches tuesday And one wednesday, I had a touch of pink blood and I think it was a small amount of dark brown discharge on Wednesday, anyway I am going to test Monday as my period is due on Sunday and I have a doctors app for a blood test the next day :-)

Apr 22, 2016 8:51pm [ 98 ]

Can you still have pregnancy symptoms if you ain't pregnant

Apr 24, 2016 7:34pm [ 99 ]

I felt so much confused right now cause i feel wired in my tummy and been thingking that i am pregnant but when i didi the test it comes out to negative, maybe because i just did it too early that is why. You think guys it is possible that i am pregnant cause of all the sign that i felt even the test result was negative?

Apr 27, 2016 12:00am [ 100 ]

Hi, I'm just curious if anyone has had the same experience or any advise. 3 months ago I was a week late for my period within that week I was very light headed and exhausted and immediately thought I could have been pregnant. I took a test and it was negative and I just left the suspicion alone. The following month noticing my fatigue was consistent and my skin had became oily my suspicion arose and after being 2 weeks late for my period, again a negative test. Now 3 months later I have intense pressure in my uterus, I'm extremely bloated with horrible lower back aches and breast pain and now as of yesterday my breasts are leaking. I took a pregnancy test again this morning and once again.. Negative... I schedule an appointment with my doctor but he can't get me in till next month ( now i didnt explain all of the symptoms I've been having so now I'm thinking maybe I should have) Does this sound like it could be pregnancy? Ive never felt the pressure and pain I've been having ever before..Even with my first pregnancy I dont remember feeling pressure like this.. It almost feels like contractions coming and going. Ive been so stressed trying to figure this all out. I don't have morning sickness but I do get nauseous at different points of the day. Something I've always dealt with since having my son 5 years ago. My nails are actually stronger then before. Usually they break easily but I've noticed there staying long. My breasts are getting more and more painful every day it feels exactly as they did when I breast fed my son. it just seems too intense if I am pregnant to feel this way at only 3 months and if I'm not pregnant I don't know what else would be causing this. My period has been late but there still coming and as heavy as they usually are and I even noticed myself ovulating every month so I just need some kind of feedback..( Not TTC )

May 18, 2016 1:22am [ 101 ]

I am on the pill but am not vey good at taking it at all, I have missed my pill 3 times this cycle and have had un protected sex for the past 2 weeks and also the day of my most fertile day and I had missed my pill the day before. It is now 6 days before my period is supposed to start and about 4 days ago my breast have gotten swollen, hurting and my nipple gets itchy.

Hi, I am 26, my husband and I starting trying to get pregnant October of 2014. I have PCOS so in January 2016 we deceided to seek professional help. Late March we were started on our first round of Clomid, two weeks later I had felt fluttering in my right lower abdomen which I hadn't ever felt before, on day 35 I had not started my period nor was the preg test positive so we started provera to induce a period and it took 12 days before I had bleeding in which I only bled for 2 days, but we started the second round of clomid, 4 days after the first day of bleeding my coworker told me to take a test because she just knew I was pregnant, so I did and it was POSITIVE! I was so excited, but two days later my HCG levels had dropped. and 5 days later I had miscarried (May 22). my doctor wants me to wait 35 days if I don't start or don't get a positive preg test to call her and we will start over. 35 days will be June 28. My husband and coworker swears I am pregnant already, my skin is super soft, my nails are gorgeous and grow super fast, and this past weekend I sunburned which I usually don't unless im in the sun for over 8 hours with no sunscreen, which I was appling every 30 min. I have taken a test once a week since the miscarriage and all were negative. my husband still insist that I am, I fear that I am and it will be missed and we will start the treatment again and lose it again.

I had unprotected sex a week before my cycle which was coming on may 5th it came and left.however two weeks after I got sore breasts.June 10th cycle came lasted for 4 days.I spotted two bled light the next two to the point I needed on pad a day,my cramps were very diffrent,it was cramps more in my back.my breasts have been sore since even while on that cycle. I normally get sore breast a week before cycle. It has yet to stop. They have even shaped different. What's going on?

Jul 1, 2016 8:12am [ 111 ]

Hi my names Marlena and I've been doing research but is still unsure. So June 9th, 2 days after i got off my period, me and my boyfriend had sex and he ejaculated in me. How quick can you get pregnant because somehow, these past 3 weeks, ive been tired and sleepy, my scent has gotten sensitive, ive been craving ALOT of sweet stuff, and i had little cramps and a bloated stomach for 3 weeks. Like you can see my bloated stomach when im relaxing. Until lastnight, i got my period i suppose. Some people may say its implantation bleeding but it cramps like menstrual bleeding. Is that normal to have those symptoms and not be pregnant? Was i just getting paranoid that i could be pregnant? Or can i still be pregnant, AFTER this menstrual cycle is done? Or is that not possible? Please help.

Jul 20, 2016 8:59pm [ 112 ]

I am having all the symptoms of being pregnant yet am very unsure if I could be. My period usually last at least 7 days yet this month it only lasted 4/5 days and was very light. Could I be pregnant?

Also before my period my breasts were for sore. They usually are before my period but this month it hurt even putting a bra on or even a singlet for bed. It's never that bad. Is this another sign?

I had been to the doctors before my period and a test came back negative.

Please help I am very confused about this whole situation.

Jul 27, 2016 11:16am [ 113 ]

So I've been off my birth control for 2 months me and my husband are ttc. I had a period the first week of July and it lasted about 5 days. Well we have been having unprotected sex ever since I got off my monthly just about everyday to every other day. My period is not for 9 more days but 2 days ago I had sharp pains kinda like cramps in my lower left abdomen and it been a little dizzy upon getting out of the bed or standing up but not every time. I also have been very gassy and had a lot of different funny feelings in my stomach but no boob changes of any kind that I know of. I'm just wondering could I be pregnant of just wishful thinking??
