Lissa - November 29

My husband & I have been trying to get pregnant for the past few months. This month we've had s_x about everyday during my ovulation. I was due to get my period on November 26th and I haven't gotten it. I'm having some cramps in the center of my very lower abdomen and lower back pains. My br___ts are very tender and I'm getting some shooting pains in them. I have a child and don't remember the symptoms. I don't want to take a pregnancy test because we've been trying for sometime & I don't want to be dissappointed. Any advice?

You are being more cautious than most - at least you have missed a period, which is the premier sign. The cramps and b___st signs are promising. You may get no more signs, but just to remind you, pregnancy hormones affect the muscles of the intestines resulting in gas, reflux, and constipation. They affect the mucous membranes which may include runny nose, saliva. There may be v____al discharge, and flare ups of urethral and v____al infections. Fatigue and frequent urination are often mentioned, as is a change in appet_te. Sensitivity to smells and tastes may occur (smoke, perfume esp.) along with the much mentioned nausea. Emotions can roller coaster. The vascular system undergoes changes with veins showing up in the b___sts, on the abdomen and changing the color in the v____a. One woman reported that even her cheeks flushed. The areola darkens and the Montgomery tubercles become prominent. For those doing Basal Body Temperature, the rising temp may increase a tad rather than starting to decline. For those checking the cervix, it may not follow the usual pattern, but stay soft and high.That's enough for now. Just a few should encourage you. It's best not to uncork the champagne until you have missed the entire period and taken a test, with a second test a week later if necessary. Good luck.

Thanks for your input. I do get some of the symptoms you mentioned like the nausea and I just got over a cold. How long do you think I should wait before I take a test? I'm only 3 days late as of today.
