Hi, I am breastfeeding my 9 month old and I am due for my period in 4-6 days. My nipples are very tingly and I get nauseated after I eat anything the past 3-4 days. I am very tired aside from my normal exhaustion with an infant. I have five children and have gotten tingly nipples with each pregnancy and only a few times as PMS. I guess at this point I'm burned out with interpreting what my body is telling me. I don't get PMS symptoms other than fatigue and I am on a strict 28 day cycle. I'm just 43 and my health is very good. Could these very generic symptoms be pregnancy and with breastfeeding, could tingling be a weird 'normal'? I've breastfed all my children and didn't have it before, other than early in pregnancy. Any input would be helpful, aside from the obvious that I wait to see it my period comes =) Thanks!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment whether the symptoms that you describe are due to pregnancy or due to PMS without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Although lactation causes amenorrhea due to ovarian suppression, occasional ovulation is possible, and if you are sexually active without protection, chances of pregnancy are possible. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. If the symptoms suggestive of pregnancy are persistent, or if your usual periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, visit 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). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
