Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms (altered vaginal discharge, increased sleep, lightheadedness, heartburn, frequent urination, mild abdominal cramps) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If you develop any new symptoms, or if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have abnormal periods, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
