I've been trying to get pregnant and since I have started trying my period is all messed up. Sometimes I go without a period for 2 or 3 months but then go to the clinic and find out that I am not. Well as usual I am late. My last period was on Sep. 13th but I didn't want to get my hopes up this time so I just didn't worry about it. I've started the frequent urination, extremaly tired , br___t soreness and all. But I've had that all b4. Well, now I have a big brown ring around one of my nipples and they are swollen. I am also very sensitive to smell but had a light case of that last time that I was late but this time, I can smell things that no1 else can and it gives me a head-ache and makes me nauseated.. I've only got sick once and I think that's bc I ate too much and got up to fast. Plus, it doesn't take much to fill me up.. 2 pieces of toast and I am full.. what do you think?

Huh, if you haven't already taken a test, then you should. You are describing some cla__sic symptoms, but since you said that you've had similar symptoms before, it could go either way. Were your periods regular before you started trying? Sometimes women who intensely long for a child can actually put their own body into a state of "false pregnancy", medical term Pseduocyesis. They have real symptoms (including missed period). I am not saying that this is what is happening to you, I am just giving you an option to think about. A lot of times (us) women can get so worked up and stressed out when we're ttc. We turn almost Martha Stewart-like with the dates and precise times that our men need to be "available", the calanders & thermometers, etc. When we take a minute to chill out is when BAAAMMM we get pregnant! Take a test, and please come back and let us know what happens. (ps changes in the nipple are usually a good indication) Good Luck!

Yes, my period was very regular b4 but that was when I was using condoms. Since me and him have been together which is almost 2 years, we have never used condoms and about 4- 6 months of being with him is when I started having problems just the days were off but here recently, I have been known to go without one for up to 3 months. I don't know what to do. I already have an appt. with the clinic on 12/14 due to my pre cancer cells but this time I am thinking that there is more going on. I'm not wanting to get my hopes up. I'm not even in the mood to have s_x. We normally don't go more than 2-3 days without s_x but it's been almost 2 weeks and I still don't want it. I wasn't really worried about it untill I noticed the brown ring around my nipple and also that they are swollen.

Swollen nipples and reduced s_x drive are also indications of early pregnancy. I had the same thing before I realised I was pregnant. Try to relax about it.

Well, I just wanted to let you guys know that I took a hpt today and it came out negative. Thanks!

Hang in there Ashy!! Maybe you could try to get an earlier apt. with your doc. Something serious could be going on and they shouldn't make you wait another month to find out. If your office has a nurse pract_toner, ask to see her/him instead of your normal doctor. You can usually get in right away, and most of them are just a knowledgeable as a doctor, only they lack the degree. I love my NP, and actually prefer her over my doc! In the mean time, pay close attention to your symptoms. Keep us posted on everything!!
