With my first pregnancy 3 years ago, I noticed that I had to pee a lot!!! This is when I knew to take a test. This time around I have to pee a lot at 5 am (crazy random time for me), fried food cravings, tired, and my breasts are sore. Took a test today and it was positive! Here we go, round 2! :) Has anyone experienced headaches in early pregnancy?

Congrats!! I believe headaches in early pregnancy can be a symptom but if they get too bad, it would be worth mentioning to your doctor.

Thanks! They haven't been too bad. I noticed that if I drink a glass of water or eat some fruit or a light snack, it lessens in intensity!

Finding a way to relieve morning sickness and symptoms of pregnancy is always a good thing.

So I'm not sure if I am pregnant or not. I been having headaces a lot lately, backaches, food craving, cramps, I believe I am spotting and I have also been tired a lot.

I have been having right side pain and under my belly/above my uterus. On the right side of my breast but under it I would sometimes feel pain there as well.


Today I have the worse pain on my sides, lower back and the lower uterus and my headache isn't even helping at all!

Have you tested? Those are all symptoms of pregnancy as well as other things. I'd test just to be sure and go from there.

I took a pregnancy test but It came out negative. Maybe it was to early? I been spotting for about four days. I still got some back pain. I'm thinking about taking another test on 12 to find out.

Sounds like you may have had a chemical pregnancy. If you got a faint positive then 3 negatives. In order to get a + you have to have hcg in your urine. when you got the - that means there were no traces of hcg. In a chemical pregnancy your body will dissolve the undeveloped egg thus causes the hgc to disappear in a sense. If you were pregnant and it has been that long since your lmp the hcg levels should be through the roof and would give a very clear + on a urine test. hope this help. .

Hi, I have been wondering if I may be pregnant. I had unprotected sex after the end of my period on march 21st weeks later I started feeling weird and experienced symptoms such as

- enlarged breast (sometimes sore)

- nausea (every morning and sometimes throughout the day)

-cramping/pressure on The bottom of my stomach (sometimes cramping on the right side)

-headaches (all day everyday !)

-extreme decrease in energy (I slept 12 hours one day)

-increase in appetite (eating all day, lost 5 lbs)

-early and light period/bleeding (I will explain further below)

-mood swings (I am laughing one minute and crying the next)

-somewhat bloated stomach

-increase in gas

-weird taste in my mouth

-heightened smell



As stated above my period was sure April 18th, but on the 15th of April I stated bleeding lightly and The color was a light pink (rarely seen red blood). That continued for about 2-3 days (also there were little clots) after that the bleeding stopped but then returned the same day but was brown and light. That continued until April 22nd. I want to add my period had NEVER been That long and is rarely light so I wondered if that could have been implantation bleeding. I took a pregnancy test and it came out a faint positive about a week later. I have taken about 2 since then and it came out negative. I have gone to the doc today and was given a urine test that was negative, the doc also listened to my stomach (unaware of my pregnancy concerns) and said my stomach was very active and chocked it up to a stomach virus. But I doubt my symptoms for the past 3 weeks have been the result of a stomach virus. Please give me any and all advice and experiences! Could I feel symptoms but my body hasn't created enough of the hormone to get a positive result ? And is it possible to have a period during pregnancy? Please help !
