I am expecting my period to come around the 7th of August. Usually by this time of the month, I can feel it coming...bloated, tired, sore and swollen breast. I haven't had any of that. I had unprotected sex 3 days after my last period, and according to all the research I've done, it would be VERY unlikely to get pregnant at that time. I'm having all sorts of symptoms that are more pregnancy-related than period-related. I'm very nauseous almost all the time (although not vomiting), light-headed frequently, and I've got a very noticeable bump high on the belly, just like where I carried my other 2 children. My question is not entirely about possibly being pregnant. Within the last 3 days I have developed a bumpy, red, ithcy rash all over my face. None of my daily habits, make-up, detergent...anything....has changed. Could this be a symptom of pregnancy also? Are my hormones out of whack, and if they are, could it cause this?
The first serious sign of pregnancy is a lack of the menstrual period. There is no sense in supposing possible pregnancy before you miss your period. Additionally, the symptoms youâve mentioned are very subjective and could mean anything. Even more, there is no way that a facial rash can be a sign of pregnancy. You can do a home pregnancy test if your period is late.
