Hello, I have a question. I think I possibly might be pregnant. I ovulated around January 5 and the next day I started having symptoms; peeing more, constipation, my breasts were soar itched and seemed to have gotten bigger, I had upper and lower back pains, I got sick to my stomach off and on throughout the day, certain smells made me sick, smoking made me sick, I could smell things alot better, and 7 days after ovulation I noticed 1 drop of blood on my toilet paper. I tested on January 18th and it was negative, then j had my period later that day, but now that I'm done in still having symptoms, like I pee every 15-20 mins, back pain, tiredness, my nausea gets worse and more frequent, I can smell things stronger than before, light off and on Brest pain occasionally they itch but there still very swollen, now I get butterflies in my tummy, and those smells that made me sick before don't make me sick anymore they just smell really strong, also my areolas seem bigger and darker, so could I actually be pregnant but my hcg level was just to low to get a reading on a home test. Please I'm super excited I really want a baby.
