  • I have also missed a period and had breast tenderness and nausea. For awhile, I even had muscle spasms in my abdomen that felt like fetal movement. This went on through 5 months and about 20 negative pregnancy tests. I don't know what caused it.

  • Very true. I've done it a couple of times, and I've seen it in other women. And I think we've all seen it on here! =)

  • Very true. With our second child, my husband and I tried for 5 months before getting pregnant. And during that time, I'd start feeling nauseated about two to three days before my period was due (this was never a PMS symptom before). Then my period would come and I'd be disappointed. The month I found out I was pregnant I didn't get nauseated.
