  • I personally have never heard sinuses being a symptom, but I guess anything is possible.

    I was very gassy when I was pregnant, but that certainly isn't exclusive to pregnancy.

    I think I would just wait until I was due then take a test then just see from there.

  • I didn't have sinus issues until the second trimester both pregnancies.

  • No neither of these happened to me early on. Sounds more like a bug.

  • I have never had sinus issues as a sign of pregnancy, but that doesn't mean it isn't possible. Being gassy is a pregnancy thing, but not necessarily a sign. (This time around, I burped a lot early in pregnancy. I'd be talking and burp mid-sentence. So embarrassing.) You could try to test now, but it may still be too early. However, I'm a test and test until you get a positive or bleed person, so I'd test now and again every couple days until I got my period. If you don't want to waste all that cash on pregnancy tests you can wait until you are officially late to test. (On a side note, you can buy pregnancy test strips in bulk on Amazon. $9 for 25 tests. That is what I do since I'm a testing fanatic!)

  • I haven't heard of that but everyone is different. I was extremely tired and mildly nauseous as well as craving protein.

  • The week I found out I was pregnant and the week I went into labor and had my DS; I thought my sinuses were going to kill me! Literally!! I couldn't breath and I sounded horrible with a bad headache. Nothing helped them either. My doctor told me it was because the membranes like swell while pregnant. After I had him it went straight back to normal and I feel fine. I didn't have the gas until further into my pregnancy though.

  • no, wait & see if you get your period then do a test

  • yup both could mean pregnancy. Usually gas comes later on but everyone is different! Good luck
