Can this be early signs of pregnancy?

I normally have pretty heavy periods, but the last two months I have only bled for one day. I usually have 5-7 day periods. The last two have been really light. This last one I couldnt use a tampon because it hurt to put one in. It also seemed to be just spotting. I have had some tension heachaches, and cramps in my lower back. I didnt feel this way when I was pregnant with my daughter, but my breasts are tender, and my stomach feels kinda tight. I'm not constipated or anything. I have had the sensitivity to smells, but its not that much different than my normal smell sensitivity. I took a pregnancy test about a month ago, and it came up negative. Things seem to be more intense. Could this be early pregnancy?

  • Your symptoms definitely make it sound possible. I would take another pregnancy test.

  • I would take another test and make an OB appointment either way. If it's not pregnancy, it sounds like some kind of hormonal imbalance. Good luck!

  • I agree that you should make an OB appt either way. If it's not pregnancy, you might have an ovarian cyst or some other hormonal issues causing those symptoms. I hope things turn out however you're hoping.
