Hi
My last period was on 19 sept! I am not using birth control as I'm trying for a baby! Had a miscarriage in April and now feel pregnant again. I have had sore enlarged breasts with a blue vein in one, darker nipples ( and sore) feeling nauseas and dizzy! Headaches very tired and moody. increased discharge and some light cramping! I know it's a little too early to test I was just hoping you could help me the wait is driving me crazy
Thanx : )

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms (sore & enlarged breasts, appearance of veins over breast, darker nipples, nausea, dizziness, headaches, tiredness, mood changes, increased vaginal discharge, abdominal cramping) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Blood HCG levels can help in confirming pregnancy as early as 11 days post-conception. Since you have had history of miscarriage, you should also consider getting serial HCG levels tested. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements should be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid having intercourse during first trimester (since you have had history of miscarriage). Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods of time. Look out for early danger signs like increase in bleeding/spotting, increased intensity of abdominal cramps and back pain etc.
Take care.
