Hi,
If i am pregnant I am 3 weeks and 4 days. There have been so many months where I've essentially convinced myself that i was pregnant only to get a negative result; i don't want to take a test until my period is actually late which will be in a few days.

this month feels a little different though. first off, I got a yeast infection about 5 days after i ovulated. I haven't had a yeast infection in over 8 years, not since I went off birth control.

Also yesterday and today i have these waves of feeling sort of weak in the knees with a slightly achey back. the only way i can describe it is: it's like when you're just about to get a fever, and you feel like your legs are kind of wobbly and weird feeling. (haha maybe that wasn't as descriptive as i'd hoped).

I don't have a fever, but my temp is 98.5, which is normal, but is actually about a degree higher than i usually run.

my breasts are slightly sore but not terrible. i'm tired but not noticeably more than usual. all of the "typical" early signs and symptoms don't really seem like they apply in this case. so maybe i'm not pregnant, but somethings definitely up with my body.

has any one else experienced early pregnancy symptoms like these? or at least ones that don't really match up with that standard list of early signs.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of early pregnancy. Look out for development of any new symptoms if you suspect chances of pregnancy (although it is not necessary that all women should experience most of the common symptoms listed). Wait and watch for your next periods/withdrawal bleeding. If you do not start with periods within 10 days of expected period dates or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy, or if you get abnormal periods, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
