Signs And Symptoms Of Pregnancy

Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if you’re actually pregnant or just experiencing a flu or PMS. To help you distinguish between being pregnant and just thinking that maybe, possibly, you might be pregnant, take a look at our signs of pregnancy and pregnancy symptoms sections or try our on-line pregnancy test. If you're still not sure but you have a pet, then take a cue from them. As Sensing Pregnancy explains, pets are often intuitive when it comes to pregnancy.  Some common early pregnancy symptoms might be morning sickness, tender breasts, frequent urination, tiredness, moodiness, and food cravings.  If you have any of these symptoms you might want to think about taking a home pregnancy test.

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum, I'm 23 and me and my hubby have been tryin to conceive now for over a year :-( and still nothing. So heres my deal..... Last month I had my period on the 26th Dec 2011, it lasted it's usual 5-6 days but was a little bit lighter than usual but I just assume it was an of month ( my cycle averages 28-29 days have had the odd 34 day one very rare tho). Anyways this month I was due or my period on the 24th Jan. Me and my hubby had sex on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd of Jan then from the 10th-14th of Jan ( he works away lol). On the 20th Jan I went to the bathroom straight after having sex and noticed pink discharge on the tissue wen I wiped, and that was it, the next day nothing then on the 22nd something had sex then wiped and it was pink again although a bit more heavier and got heavier throughout the day only to about medium flow tho so not like usual, the next day was the same medium flow but by afternoon had dies down to very light again, for 3 days after that it turned into just brown discharge wen I wiped and barely needed a liner. It's been 2 days since it's stopped and I had weird twinging in my lower abdomen, not cramping coz it was too light and on and off again, also have just started to get back pain ( ive hurt my lower back in the past so it isn't unusual for me to get sore but it's my upper back aswell which is unusual). I've been moody which is usual before my period is due but I'm still irritable and have been crying over stupid things. Ive also got a headache that just won't go away!!! Can anyone help me, is it just in my head coz I'm so hopeful?? Has anyone experienced similar symptoms early??! Thanks
