Is all over achy body feeling more a sign of pregnancy or period about to start?

I've had a headache for 2 days straight and have felt very achy. No one that I know is sick but it's still possible I could have gotten sick from work I guess. I've been very sleepy (I'm always sleepy before period though) and have been peeing a lot. I know it's weird but the peeing is weirdest to me. The few days before I start I'm usually heavier because I retain so much water and I'll actually wake up in the morning and realize hours later I haven't even gone pee.

Anyway, I'm done wasting money on test after test. I just want some of your opinions. I've vowed to myself to wait until I'm a week late to test since my period can vary 1-3 days sometimes.

  • Could you have a UTI? You could be pregnant, I guess. If you are then make sure you're drinking plenty of water if you have a headache. You don't want to be dehydrated. But, if it's an infection then you may need to go to the doc. Just pay attention and listen to your body. If you've been TTC then I hope you're preggers!! Good luck!
