Okay, first of all, I have very irregular periods. I never know when it is coming. It could come after 1 month, it could come after 3 months - I've even gone 6 months between periods before. I had blood tests & ultrasounds about 5 years ago just to see if there was something wrong with me because I knew eventually I would want kids (I am now 26 & have been married half a year). Dh & I are not ttc but we're not trying not to either. We feel it will happen when God wants it to. My last period was around Dec. 26 & the one before that was around Nov. 6 (forgot to write it down). On Feb. 9, I wiped & there was blood on the tissue. I thought it was af so I put a pad on. The next morning there was no blood, just very faint brown spotting on the pad. I have not had af or any other bleeding since then. (Was this ib?) My symptoms are the following: fatigue - I've been extremely tired the last few weeks, even though I get to bed at a decent time, gassy, bloated (my stomach looks bigger too), I'm hungry a lot more - if I get really hungry sometimes I start to feel very nauseous, a few times this week I have felt a little dizzy/lightheaded, I had cramps the last two weeks but they seem to be subsiding now (but I still get odd feelings once in awhile), I have never had a headache but in the last few days I've been getting headaches that only last a few minutes, my nipples are very sensitive (I have never had this before either, not even before af) & they sometimes feel like they are on fire, I think I noticed an increase in my sense of smell with perfume & I think my bowel movements are more frequent. DOES THIS SOUND LIKE I AM PREGNANT?? PLEASE HELP ME!! It is hard for me to get time off work to go see my doctor. I have a vacation week Apr. 11-15 so I could make an appt. then but if I am pregnant I should probably go sooner than that. Oh yeah, hpts are -ve. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!

From your symptoms, I'd say you are. If you had implantation on Feb. 9th then you'd be approximately 9 weeks. Use a home pregnancy test, and start taking pre-natal vitamins containing folic acid. I recommend making a doc's appointment soon. Best wishes!

I agree- you sound like you could be preggo so make an appointment for your vacation time and keep taking hpt's at one-week intervals unitl then. Good luck!

Thanks for the input guys! I have never been pregnant before so I am a little nervous. Since I don't have regular periods, I wouldn't know if I have "missed" one. I was thinking of making an appt. for Mon. but I think I might wait a few more weeks - I don't want to get a false neg.

Symptoms not present this afternoon. Could I still be preg.? Has anyone else had symptoms come & go like this? Nipples feel a little tingly & very mild crampiness but I haven't really felt nauseated yet today (not that I want to!)
