The possibility of me being pregnant is there because my partner and I pull-out. However, I don't think I'm pregnant because I've had negative hpts and I still have a light monthly. The weird thing for me: been extremely gassy the past couple of months; urinating more(partner even made it a point); more dizzy than usual; crazy dreams/hard time sleeping; drooling?; mood swings; smells are definitely stronger; did I mention EXTREMELY gassy?..lol. So, I'm actually looking for some answers because of the newest thing I've been experiencing. I do a lot of stretches on a exercise ball daily, but now when I lay on my stomach, there is sooooo much pressure around my pelvic area where the uterus would be. So, when I got off the ball, the pressure completely released and felt like a surge of blood went back into that area(almost like when you go upside down and then stand upright- you feel the blood drain back down). I also felt the pressure again when my partner was laying on me. I thought maybe that it was trapped air or something because I've been so gassy, but it has not gone away yet. Any ideas?
I don't know it's just really weird!

why don't you go to your doctor to get a blood test?

Razz Thank you for responding. I haven't yet because I have had negative hpts and still have a monthly. You tell that to doctors and they look at you like-" and your still not convinced?" Then they question you," do you WANT to be pregnant?" all the while still giving you that look like your crazy!
I'm also looking into gluten and wheat intolerances. Maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe I can go in concerned about that and then mention the possibility of being pregnant? I know I should be more proactive when it comes to seeing the doctor, it's just I live on an island and the nearest doctor that I can and am willing to see is about 45 minutes away. Kind of a hassle, but I guess worth it if they can figure me out.
I also forgot to mention the nausea. I have a sensitive stomach so I get it now and then, but this past week it's been hitting me late afternoon and after dinner. I guess your right, I need to go in. It would be just too surreal though if I was preggo. I would be one of those rare woman that make the impossible = possible.(Neg. tests/bleeding).

Best to rule it out....or better yet find out the real cause of your discomfort. I guess I am support seeing a doctor whenever possible because I work at a hospital.

Thank you. I'm definitely going to make an appointment. This gas and bloating thing is really starting to get uncomfortable. I'm tripping because I've been eating good, slowly getting into an exercise routine and I still have all this gas! I'm just baffled!! Confused

from reading both your posts it's unlikely that you are pg. You do mention some bothersome symptoms that I agree, as a nurse, should be checked out. Pressure you feel could be related to all of that lovely gas Smile

Lol, thank you. I really don't think I am either. I don't know why there's so much gas though! Can coffee make you gassy? The creamer I add is lactose free. If so, that's the only thing that I can think of that might be throwing my system off.

Thank you ladies for responding!

Have you changed your diet?

Hmm...well, lets put it this way..I've gained 30lbs over the past 2 years(I know a lot!). I'm 5'9 and weigh 168 so I'm a little overweight. That was due to lack of exercise and over eating. Throughout the weight gain, it's not that I wasn't eating healthy food, it's just I was eating bad stuff on top of the good. Hence, the weight gain.
Now, I'm exercising again, and eating less of the bad stuff. Apples and broccoli aren't anything new to me...but it's something that I usually eat every day. I'm lactose intolerant so I don't really do dairy(cheese & yogurt don't bother me).
I guess to answer your question, I don't think I've significantly changed my diet. I know where your coming from though, I do eat a lot of fiber, but it's nothing out of the norm.
