Could being pregnant (beginning) be confused with starting to feel as though you have the flu? I am expecting AF on the 18th. My hubby and I are ttc for about 10 mos. I know I should just wait to find out if AF comes, but I am anxious/excited. Anyway, I was fertile/Ov on 10/2-10/5 (10/5 being my O day). My hubby and I bd on 10/1, 10/4 and 10/5 (he was sick so I gave him a 10/10 my chest was sore and I was achy, but later that night I had 102 temperature so thought it was a flu. Next day temp was around 99 and then later on that day was pretty much back to normal temp. 97-98. Today (10/13) chest still feels sore and have been told twice my chest looked bigger... my mom told me I was coming out of my bra. I feel a little light-headed today and somewhat nauseous here and there, but it could be the weather (raining the past week) - or still being "sick" - I don't know. I guess I am just hoping too much and I should just wait it out, but it is so frustrating. Does anyone think a pg test would work today? Does anyone know if these could be preg. signs or am I just hoping too much? aaaaahhhhhhhhh....going crazy here. Any info. would be helpful! Thanks.

It could pregnancy, but maybe you did have the flu with a fever and all. Bigger b___st are definately a sign. Some women have luck testing this early but I would suggest waiting it out. That way you don't get a false negative. With my second son I thought I had the flu for about a month and finally my husband suggested I might be pregnant, well I was.

Holly: My af is due 15-17th, and im having just about the same symtoms as you, but im having cramping, bloated, back and head hurting, but my b___bs feel alright. Ive talked to alot of people on here and they said mine sounds like pregnancy symtoms or either my af is coming, unwanted. I took a test on the 10th and the 11th, not a good idea cause i got 2 BFN. So im jus waiting and seeing if af comes, hopefully not, then im going to take a test. Good luck To you tho. and keep me updated cause im curious about yours, sense our af is due around the same time. :)

Hey guys, I have been reading alot of these posts lately because I am going through alot of the same symptoms. My last cycle was 9/9 but my cycles are irregular, so I'm not sure when I should be expecting AF. I woke up with very bad cramping on 10/10 and it lasted through 10/11. On the 11th, I had a very bad aching in my lower back. I just knew AF would be there, but nothing yet. I tested on Oct 10 and this morning and both were negative. I haven't had an appet_te for the last 2 days, and my cramps are gone. My baseline temp is 97.1. The last few have been 97.6, 97.5, 97.4, 97.4, 97.5. What do you guys think?? My husband and I have been trying for a few months and we REALLY want to be pregnant!! Any thoughts would help!

HELLO, can I join in with you? My AF is due 10/20 and I have had period like pains, fuller b___bs ( but not painful) and flu like symptoms. I'm not sure what is going on with my body but I have been getting positive opk since I o'd on 10/3??????? Weird.


Holly - October 17

AF came 10/16 (was due for it 10/18). Oh well, we'll try again for next month!! How is everyone else doing?


Heather - October 17

Holly: Well Af showed up for me to, but on the 15th. We can try next month!


Holly - October 17

Heather: Sorry to hear that, but let's try to keep our heads up and know that we are in the same boat!! Good luck next month to US!!


Holly - October 17

Sue2: How are you doing? I know you are probably still waiting. Hopefully things will work out better for you than it has for Heather and I. Let us know. Good luck to you.

Holly, I don't think I will have any better luck. I tested this morning with a BFN, af due tomorrow. I have just decided I've had enough. I think I have used all my energy over the last 2 years charting and doing stick test's. I think I will have a break for a while. Good luck to everyone for the future.


Holly - October 19

Good luck to you too Sue2. I feel the same way sometimes....just want to give up and let it (hopefully) happen without getting crazy. It's very frustrating.

Sue2, a positive opk can mean you are pregnant, I have read on that if you are pregnant you will continue to have positive opk's. I hope you are still on this site.
