Hi everyone! I'm new to all of this pregnancy stuff and I'm just trying to get some input =] Alright. I researched and figured out all of this AFTER the fact..lol but this is what i have gathered, and some of my symptoms. My last period was August 16th...I looked up my ovulation days, and it said i am fertile starting the 23rd of august, and my likely day to ovulate is the 30th. My period cycle is very regular. My boyfriend is a marine so I rarely can spend time with him..so you know what we were doing =] He got here the 23rd..we had s_x basically every day till september 2nd using the withdrawal method. We would be happy if I was pregnant so this is not an issue. -the very first thing i noticed was a stuffy nose i had for 2 days then it stopped.. -I did not notice anything else weird until september 5th,6th, and 7th..I had these burning type twinges/cramps in my abdomen..very different than i have ever felt with period cramps. I also was veryyyy nauseaus on and off these 3 days..which NEVER happens. After those 3 days the twinges and nausea stopped completely. -I also started getting headaches and burning kind of in my nose..maybe sinus problems..but idk i dont get stuff like that ever.. -my sleeping pattern was i was either suffering from insomnia all night..or i was extremely tired during the day. -I only have slight br___t pain on the sides. -and the only other thing is i am peeing SO much..i already pee alot and now it just seems like alot more. -I have taken one preg test a few day but it was negative. what do you guys think =]..is it in my head? thank you ahead of time for ur help!! ↓

It sounds like you have positive symptoms. Maybe you just tested too soon and there was not enough hcg in your urine. I'm not sure what the "blank" (word is not showing up) is that you had for 2 days, but if it was "spotting" it could have been implementation bleeding. Good luck!

lol no spotting it was just a stuffy nose =/ but i tested again this morning and negative again..af is due tommorow and im a little crampy with lower back pain.. the main thing im noticing is my nipples/areolas are tender and my areolas look gigantic and veins are very noticeable on my breats which ive never seen before...how can this be if i tested negative just this morning?? i just dont understand..

You may just not have enough hcg in your urine yet. Did you use FMU?

 

ashb45 - September 13

So, your period is about two days late, right? Maybe there is not enough hcg in your urine to detect a pregnancy yet. I've read that some women don't get a positive until they are two weeks late. Either way, if you go for a blood test next week, there should be enough to tell.

My AF is due to start tomorrow. We used the same method as you did. My LMP was 8/25 and on 9/2 had s_x 3 times and on 9/8 had s_x 4 times. My bf travels a lot so I understand about when your bf gets home. My bbs are a little tender, bigger and my nipples are a little irritated from rubbing against my bra and it was just a plain cotton one with no lace. However, can't really count the bigger because that can be an AF symptom. I have had some nausea on and off and I did lose my lunch last Friday. I've also had cramping on and off, but as soon as I have a BM or pa__s some gas, it goes away. I've also had some extreme exhaustion. I can't count going to the bathroom often as a symptom because it seems I'm always there. I drink a lot, diet coke, coffee, and water, so that isn't a viable symptom for me. Although, today and tonight, I have had that feeling that AF is on her way. There is sort of a pressure building that makes me think so. I just don't "feel" like I'm pregnant, but who knows? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Ash!

wow we have alot of the same symptoms...i just was on e phone with my bf crying for like an hour basically over nothing...thats my 5th crying act in like 2 days..lol i get a little emotional around af time but nowhere near that...i also have been having nausea on and off alot...but i havent actualy thrown up! lol im jealous of u haha jk!..my nipples and areola look darker and bigger and are slight sore but no real bad b___st pain... im rlly hoping af doesnt come...for the last 4 or 5 days ive been getting cramps but she just doesnt come...iim not sure how long ym cycle is but i know its normlly regular and with a 28 day cycle i was expected af on sunday...but who knows how long my cycle day is... im jus gonna play the waiting game...even tho its HORRIBLE! i rlly hope AF doesnt show for u! we need to do a bfp dance....~*bfpdancing*~ keep me updateddd...when are you going to test??

Ash, AF is due today. I have a 23-25 days cycle and today is Day 23. I have cramps this morning and feel like it's going to start any minute. I'm going to wait to test until Sat or Sun. Plus, now I'm under a lot of stress. My car was flooded and totaled this past weekend in the Chicago area. I'll keep hoping for you Ash.

 

ashb45 - September 17

ugh thats no fun!! im rlly sorry bout ur car! everything will work out tho im hoping af doesnt come for us!!

Ash, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! Hopefully, AF will not show up! She hasn't been here yet but I think it's just a matter of time. Now I have a lower backache.

 

ashb45 - September 17

that could be a prego sign too...=]

 

teresap - September 17

My backache feels more like AF. It is too convenient that I have a backache when it's due. But who knows?
