Has anyone gotten really bad throbbing headaches the week the period was due (or week prior) and turned up pregnant??? I'm due Saturday and wondering if I should take a test now.

These headaches are not like what I am used to. They throbb and this isn't a PMS symptom for me either. I am very fatigued as all hell too. I know nobody has a crystal ball, but just wondering of this is a common symptom in the very beginning. This hurts alot, it comes and goes and I've had to take Advil Migraine for the past 3 days.

  • I get a bad headache every month right before my period. The hormonal changes bring it on. That didn't happen when I was younger, and started sometime in the past few years.

  • Oh great! Well I also started taking advair everyday for my asthma. I wonder if that causes these intense headaches......well I took a test, came negative. I guess I'm waiting until sunday & see if I get af and test again if I don't. Ah being a woman, lots of fun right?

  • sounds very familiar... but I would stay away from advil.. just stick with tylenol right now because if you are advil is bad for the baby.. but i wouldn't take it to quick.. just wait for more period symptoms and if they don't show up and pregnancy symptoms do then try a test.. but i had 3 false negatives so i don't really believe in the pee tests the blood ones are good though
