During intercourse, I experienced an odd sensation that can only be described as an "odd pop" when he would penetrate - not painful, just odd. After, I went to the bathroom to clean up, and there was an orange-ish mess that was watery and cleaned up easy enough. I thought it may be my now 3-weeks-overdue period, but the bleeding did not continue. I have lingering tenderness/soreness in that area, but no further spotting or anything. I have a lot of common preg. symptoms, but an inexpensive HPT yesterday was negative. I can't eat more than a few bites at a time without being sick, but I'm gaining weight. I have horrible heartburn over the last week, too. I know IF I were, it would have happened in relation to June 9 (the love travels for work, so it's pretty easy to track), and my last AF was mid-May. I ovulate close to my time of the month according to the specialist. Is this orange-ish watery whatever-it-was normal, a new symptom of pregnancy, or a sign of something more unpleasant

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms that you describe (tender heavy breasts, darkened perkier nipples, bumps on areola, more pronounced veins, intense nausea and near vomiting, some occasional vomiting, headache, lower back pain, dizziness, odd dreams and increased nightmares, smell and food aversions, no appetite, weight gain (in spite of eating way less and barely keeping down small light meals, orange discharge) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy test (UPT) kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. They can also show false negative results. Blood/serum HCG level estimation is accurate. UPT should always be done on early morning first urine sample as the concentration of pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be highest in this sample. You can also consider repeating UPT after about 7-10 days to see if turns positive. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy.
If you suspect to be pregnant, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest 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.
Take care.
