I don't know where Grandpa Viv has gone. Some women have what is like a period in the first trimester. The first sign I noticed was being really tired and nausea so these could be good signs. It is still alittle early to tell if that really was your period 2 weeks ago. They suggest waiting until you miss a period to take a test. I would be concerned about losing 7 lbs., unless of course you are on a diet. If you are pregnant that much weight loss is not healthy. I would see your Dr. for there opinion.

Grandpa Viv went skiing in Chamonix! He is back and pretty much in one piece. Skiing at 67 years old is not prudent, but it is still fun. C, you can have bleeding at period time during pregnancy, but it is usually lighter than normal. Upsets to the digestive system in early preg. include heartburn, gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea. Feelings of nausea and sensitivity to smells (perfume, cigarettes?) are common. Your signs started a week before your last "period", which is about when one expects implantation. Your nausea and smell sensitivity have turned you off eating and you have lost weight. This doesn't happen to everyone, but weight gain in the first trimester is often negligible for this reason. I suspect that you are 7 weeks pregnant (since lmp), and if you take a home test first pee this weekend, you will likely get a positive. Good luck!

PS. At this stage your hCG should be high enough that the cheapest test will be just fine (Walmart or the Dollar Store (ask the cashier), not a drug store)
