  • Fatigue / tiredness
  • Nausea / morning sickness
  • Backaches
  • Headaches

So far, I've noticed nausea (although I haven't gotten sick) and that rush of saliva that occurs when you feel like you're about to be sick, cramping/pulling feelings in my lower stomach, and a slight backache. My boobs feel perfectly fine, if a little heavy. TMI I know, but I've also experienced both constipation and diarrhea in the same week. When I lie down on my stomach it feels as if there's a little ball between my pelvic bones. I haven't taken a test in a few days (and then it was negative) and I'm scared to try it again. . . But I really feel 'full' and pregnant. Of course, I know that if one fears herself to be pregnant some symptoms can be imagined, but do any of you seasoned mothers think this could be all in my head? I don't think i can think up a swollen uterus, but. . IF i am, i would be between five and six weeks.

I had left side flank pain, a temp, and nausea. All are not "normal" symptoms. But, I was indeed preggo w/ nothing else going on.
