I'm 31 years old and my last period started on June 17. On June 30 I had slight spotting, just on the tissue then it stopped. Yesterday when I woke up again I noticed spotting, then again in the afternoon. But, it's not a flow. My breasts have been super tender and painful for a bit more than 3 weeks now and I have also been feeling very tired as well. I feel something in my stomach, but, it's not like period cramps, it's more of a dull cramp and less intense. My hubby says I'm pregnant, and we are trying. But, I'm trying to not get my hopes up. Could it be anything else? I know it's too early to test as my period isn't due until the 15th.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms (spotting, tender and painful breasts, increased tiredness, abdominal cramps) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, and if you do not start with your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, you should consider visiting 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.
