Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy

Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if you’re actually pregnant or just experiencing a flu or PMS. To help you distinguish between being pregnant and just thinking that maybe, possibly, you might be pregnant, take a look at our signs of pregnancy and pregnancy symptoms sections or try our on-line pregnancy test. If you're still not sure but you have a pet, then take a cue from them. As Sensing Pregnancy explains, pets are often intuitive when it comes to pregnancy.  Some common early pregnancy symptoms might be morning sickness, tender breasts, frequent urination, tiredness, moodiness, and food cravings.  If you have any of these symptoms you might want to think about taking a home pregnancy test.

Hi everyone, My husband & I have been TTC since 2yrs now. Strangely I dint get my Periods in Mrch as my last cycle was in arnd 20Feb. March end had an unusual watery & at times thick white discharge lasted arnd 10days which normally lasts around 4days that too during ovulation which should have been mid of the month. Hoeveva no period that month. Again April End had discharge whch was for 4days or so but no period. May Dint have discharge. Around 21st started spotting (pinking bworish) once a day or so & dint need a pad. After 5days flow increased a bit & used a pad for the entire day as on & off bleeding which is bright red like AF but doesnt last more than an hour. Am still bleeding as it is reduced again but more than spotting. Its 8days today. Took a HPT on 23May & BFN. Symptoms are I have lower back pain but not like PMS as i dont get any PMS. Back pain while standing or walking or at times while lying down. Today feeling tired, sleepy after sleeping for nearly 14hrs which is unlikely as i sleep only max 5-6hrs a day. Stools really sticky& dont know if its termed as constipation. And run short of breath even if I stand for long or walk a little. Im overweight so cant make out changes much with B**bs & weight. Could this be my period or Implantation? Actually fed up of BFN & hence dint wana take HPT. Thought of visiting a OB/GYN if i wud not get AF but now shud i still go or consider this as my periods. Shud i take another HPT. Can i concieve in Aprl inspite of having no period from March? Any advice will be highly appreciated. Thank u Note : I do have irregular cycle & Im already 30 TTC our 1st baby......
