I am sooo confused. I took a test today...Came out negative. My period is due 12/12. Starting on tuesday this week, I have had mild cramping on and off all day. I keep going to the bathroom expecting to find blood, but nothing. Not even any sort of discharge, I have been really dry actually. My lower right back has been aching. It is hard to sit in one position for a long time. I had sex on my ovulation day last month so I could be preg.
But, it also could be pms signs!

Anyone have just cramps and back ache as a pre preg symptom? I would love to hear any of your experiences to ease my mind for a while!!!

I had some backaches & crampyness, but I also had tender breasts. But you can have every sign & not be pregnant - or you can have no signs & be very pregnant. Everyone is different. I hope you are:)

I have had cramps on and off for a few weeks and I have been bloated my period is very late but each time I think maybe im getting it, but my lower back doesnt hurt unless im standing for a long time or slouching...

I wish the signs between the two were different it would be less frustrating

Stephiecakes- have you taken a test yet? Are you normally late on your periods? Sounds like you are preg if you are that late! Af is due next week...We will see!

Yes I took a hpt and it was negitive and a pee test from the doctors, the ywere both negitive that was a week or two ago and still no period but the symptoms are the same. I went to day they want me to go back in 2 weeks if I dont have it, and get bloodwork then. But I guess a lot of people show neg. On pee tests.

It sounds like you are pregnant though as well

im 18 though, how old are you?

Yeah I am waiting until monday...So if my period does not come I will take a test again. I really do not have any other symptoms except cramps and sore nipples. So who knows. It sucks to wait!

Oh, I am 27

Yeah I have those symptoms too...Im really confused though, they seem to be more sensitive/sore, darker, "bigger/fuller" and darkening area around nipples as well as more visable veins..

I would think im pregnant but the tests say neg! Each time... I took ept first and I got a faint line, very visable line but it was faint...And searching leads me in the direction most people/hpt consider that a positive..But in first responce I got a neg. And as well with the docs.

I hope your appointment goes the way you planned :o) :o)


do you know anything about leg or thigh pains during early pregnancy? They feel different from cramps :?:

Yeah, if you got a faint line you are most likely pregnant! Even if you got a negative after on a different test. That test just had a sensitivity difference. A blood test would tell you for sure. You definately have more symptoms than I do! Keep me posted!

Designer gal,
you just got off birth control didn't you? I did the exact same thing last month when I was trying to start my period. Your body is probably trying to start. I had menstrual like cramps for a week last time thinking I was going to start. Then I had a few days of spotting and finally started. I think it takes your body a few months to get normal. It's always a good thing to start after you stop the pill though!! I am have not started. My chest is sore and swollen, and a little nausea. Had back pain yesterday. We'll see!

Thanks for sharing your experience. I never knew stopping bc pills would mess up my system this much. We are actullay not trying to have a baby. So, if I am not pregnant, I will be going back on the pill. I stopped it this month because I missed 4 last month and I wanted to get my system back on track. I figured my odds are low of getting pregnant since I have only been off the pill for 3 weeks. But, you never know! My husband goes on deployment next year so we will really try when he gets back.

Period while pregnant?
I don't know if this is where u should post this...but I have a weird question. My husband and I are TTC and 2.5 weeks ago I spotted for 3 days and thought it was implantation bleeding but then on day 5 I woke up with cramps and bleeding. My period usually is heavy for a couple days then normal for a couple then light for a couple. So it usually lasts 6 days. This time it was heavy for 2 days and then light for 2 days. Now 1 week since my period ended I'm super exhausted. Also I'll add that my period came 1 week early. I'm just confused b/c I know that you can't get your period while your pregnant but I seriously feel pregnant. Is there any chance? TIA

DID you mean to say that you know that you cant hrutget your period y farwhile being pregnant? That is very far from the truth. I know many women that had thier periods for up to 6 months after they concieved. Every pregnancy is different for every women. I would talk to your health care provider, and if you think that you might be pregnant with that bleeding aside, then I would also buy a home test in the mean time. Good luck1

I am confused!!
I was really trying to conceive a few months ago, well my husband and didn't really Stop trying, sometimes we have unprotected sex, I started taking contraceptive pills on the first day of my period Nov 22nd, I took them for like 7 days, I stopped because I got scared, I had an irregular bleeding for almost 3 days, when my period is only 5 days long, the bleeding was not that red, not like the regular color, it was wattery and I was really depressed crying for 3 days without reason, anyway now almost 20 days later I have cramps, I feel sharp pain in my lower abdomen and my temperature is a little high, I didn't really notice my normal ovulation symptoms (normally around the 14 or 15 day of my cycle) so I'm not sure if I did ovulate or not, my question is, could the pills be causing a mess in my body, if I just took them one week, I didn't have the regular strechy dischard like when I'm ovulating, or is there any chance of pregnancy (though I doubt it).

I had sex throughout the month of mid Jan to mid Feb and have backaches and cramping. Im supposed to get my period on Feb. 18th had protected sex on the Feb. 14th, 15th, but unprotected on the 16th. All other times that I had sex from Jan. till mid Feb I had unprotected sex but it was not that often maybe once or twice a week if that. Could I be pregnant?? Any thoughts thanks!

Alright, I havent had a period in over a year. But I've been getting moody, My boobs feel fuller and look a little darker. When I stand for a while my back hurts and I noticed some brownish red blood when I go, but it only lasted about a day and at the end of it it got pinkish. I have been getting tummy cramps too. Would I be pregnant or is this my period?
