Lizabeth - September 3

Has anyone experienced these symptoms when pregnant? I am now three days late, two negative preggers tests, but just have that feeling. I have been experiencing hot flashes at night and have this weird metallic taste in my mouth that won't go away....any ideas?

Lizabeth I called plan parenthood because I had that taste too in my mouth but it went away and when I brush my teeth, there's always a small blood so what they said is I have to check with my dentist coz there's nothing to do with pregnancy......what do u mean by hot flashes??? what do u feel??

I feel hot rushes through my body. Starts slow, then warms up throughout my body until I am completely overheated. Lasts about 2 minutes. I don't know, but I am on day 36 and no period yet.

I have found that one of the symptoms of pregnancy is in fact a metallic taste.. I didnt believe that until I found it yet again on another site... I went to typed in pregnancy symptoms and all types of sites come up. I found this on 2 sites. As for the hot flashes... not too sure about that. Altho my body temperature changes durastically..I wouldnt say to the point of over heating.. does it happen when you are covered in blankets?? I would DEF call your doctor about that. It doesnt sound right.

I too found that the metallic taste is a symptom. As far as the hot flashes go, I am not that concerned about them, they seem like a hormonal thing and I have had them before so I just think it is a part of this experience. :) Thanks for the advice.

I was reading a book at the grocery store today about pregnancy. One of the signs of pregnancy they had listed was a metallic taste.

Well I am on day 41 (still no period) three HPT- negative and one blood test - negative (dont know if it was a qualitative or quant_tative test) but I am just going to hold on and re-test in a few days... maybe my horomone levels are not high enough yet....I think I took the blood test too soon. In any event, I called my Obgyn to set up an appointment... still having hot flashes and the metallic taste. Will keep you posted.

Maybe you're stressed out, that can cause your period to skip, if you are, try and relax ..maybe you have low iron, my friend did and her periods were totally messed up, the doctor put her on birth control and they went to normal


Lizabeth - August 30

No, not stressed, actually have never been better, and am fine on the iron thing, had it checked before. Been off the pill for a year and don't want to go back on....a la natural. :) Maybe I am just psyching myself out. We will see.........

hot flashes are caused by a drop or fluctuation in estrogen levels. When you are pregnant estrogen increases in your body. I've recently experienced hot flashes (but still have b___st soreness) and am not sure if I am pregnant or not. This would be my 2nd pregnancy. ......If you are not pregnant, you may have a hormonal imbalance. I would see your doctor.

Donna - that is a helpful answer Donna. At least now we know why this hot flushes thing is happening. I'm 11 days late now. Took a HPT on Sunday morning and was negative. I have lots of other symptoms but not morning sickness. Not that I love puking my guts out, but at least it'll be a sure sign of pregnancy? I keep having some kind of feeling around my abdominal area, almost like the kind you have when you are about to have your period. And I wonder if it is normal? And if it actually means that I'm not pregnant at all? Sigh. All this suspense is really killing me.


Donna - September 3

Joey--I can understand where you are coming from. The suspense kills me too. I am going to test this weekend if I do not get my period. My b___st tenderness has gone away I am curious if that's a sign that the preg. didn't take. If you are getting a negative reading 11 days late, chances are, you are not pregnant. The pregnancy hormone would be high enough for a test to pick it up at that point. However, if you do not get your period in the next few days, I would at least call a doctor to ease your mind.


joey - September 3

I started bleeding early this morning. :( So I guess no luck for me. That would mean I'm not pregnant like I would have hoped. Sigh. Good luck to all the other women here. Hope they have better luck than I do! :) Thanks for listening everybody, though I'm not pregnant, I get to learn a lot of things this time round. So thanks all for sharing their experiences. You people have make it easier to deal with all these stress n pressure. So thanks very much n bye!
