  • Swollen / tender breasts
  • Fatigue / tiredness
  • Nausea / morning sickness
  • Backaches
  • Headaches

ive always had problems thinking i was pregnant. And when i gave up, one of my boyfriends brothers friends said "shes pregnant i can see it in her eyes" and that was earlier on in the week, just found out today. and i started thinking of all the symptoms i have. i constantly feel hot, like i just want to lay on the cold concrete, I feel sick every now and then especially when i havent eaten all day. i have (tmi sorry) diareha and some pains around the left side of my pelvic/lower abdomen. right now im exsperiancing a kind of ssharp pain up my left side. my face is breaking out not in huge amount but theyre bigger than normally and i have milky discharge.... could i be pregnant?

 

p.s also i had really bad headache or migrains about a week ago. not late on my period yet. i got it around the 26th of last month. i should have it byu the 19 if not pregnant

You could be, but it's so early and those symptoms could be chalked up to PMS as well.  I'd wait a few more days and then take a pregnancy test to know for sure.

 When I first get pregnent I get headaches and dizzy spells a lot, and I get cold often (well more then normal) I am always wearing a jacket it seems. Other then that I have 'normal' symptoms, the morning sickness, and whole 9 yards.

If the test was negative you could be having muscle spasms causing both the flutters and the backaches.  If you are pregnant, you won't feel movement until you're closer to 16-20 weeks along.

Hi! I am Alicia and I have 2 wonderful, beautiful little girls. me and my husband are trying to conceive. I am currently 5 DPO and have been having these weird symptoms. I have had light spotting and cramping and I am still 9 days before my expected AF. I know it is way too early to test but these are my symptoms...


-Light spotting and cramping

-light nausea

-headaches

-having to pee like ALL day

-slight lower back pain (achy feeling)

-tired even if it is only half way through the day

-nipples only sensitive when husband is a little too rough (used to like it, ALOT) TMI sorry!

-no discharge

-really horny (sorry TMI)

could this be early signs of pregnancy?fingers crossed

For me, breast tenderness starts almost immediately. I never have breast tenderness for PMS, so that was my first clue. After that, I started peeing more often, I was hungry ALL THE TIME, and I was sleeping a lot.

When i was pregnant, i had EXTREME morning sickness. I automatically knew i was pregnant from the day we tried though =) I have a lot of those symptoms up there, but it is from birth control lol
