Seems like pregnancy but is it too early to test?

User Profile
Started period March 08, 2009. I never have PMS symptoms or anything and I'm very healthy. We use condoms but pre-cum might of gotten in from the 18th-23rd and the 25th. I've began noticing a change in my breasts the 22nd and they were a little tender not so much. I thought it was ovulation. Now March 29th they are bigger, swollen, veins popping out a little, and tender and tingling sensation just while I'm sitting down and I wear a sports bra. I noticed on the 23rd I started peeing more and I was tired a lot...wasn't feeling myself and my friends can tell because I didn't even want to go out or anything. I also had cramps from the 23rd to the 25th. They are gone now. I feel bloated and I hate going pee so much and my breasts hurt like heck and I sleep till noon everyday and my period isn't due til the 8th of April. You can understand my shock considering I've never had PMS symptoms before and now I'm peeing all the time my nipples are bigger...I've had two kids before and maybe that causes sensitivity towards future pregnancy symptoms? But it feels and seems like pregnancy but is it too early to test? I wish I could know now since I'm trying to join the military...

You will probably have to wait a bit on the test. Try taking one around the 5-6th of April. You "could" be pregnant. I know it will be hard to wait that long, but it will probably be the best timeframe to tell. If you pop a negative, wait until you actually miss your period.

Thanks for the advice...I'm real impatient so I'm going crazy over here!! But I will update this soon enough!! I'm making an appointment for this coming up friday to take a blood test and this will be interesting to tell others who thought they might be pregnant too don't you think? Or I could be just tripping... Razz

Lol either way, I am sure we will get some kind of advice from your story. I have heard other women talk about how they just "know" they are pregnant, even before they test. And sure enough, a positive. But it goes both ways. I, myself was one of the ones who had no clue until I took a test.

Ya, I remember the first time I was pregnant I felt nothing, then the 2nd time I felt everything. I read tons of peoples stories and I am 50/50...once my breasts became tender it was a trigger...but the other day after they became big, swollen, nipples larger, sensitive and peeing a lot...my "I just know" instinct became more of reality...but who knows...wouldn't it be soooo funny if I started my period??? LOL I would never trust my body again that's for sure!!!!

Our bodies are master manipulators lol. I can't depend on my body to be "regular" at anything lol. As far as you starting your period, yeah, so much for your body telling the truth heehee. But, good luck either way Smile

KMILLER25: hey girl...well sounds like my situation except my period isn't due yet...but if you're is late...and you had only spotting (which could be from implantation on your uterus) you can be pregnant. Some people when they test it doesn't show up until 2 weeks after their period. The best result is to get a blood test done at your doctor's office...or at your local planned parenthood...cheaper that way than going to the hospital or something. I'm going to get a blood test done asap. A lot of people have your results and it's petrifying to wait and not know if you are or not...I mean you might not be...but you might be...50/50...only way to know is either way it out another 2 weeks and restest again (I know it sucks waiting...) or go asap and get a blood test done. Hope that helps. Smile

Sounds like to me you are pregnant...but man...I spent DAYS researching about my symptoms and the chances of me being pregnant and took every online pregnancy tests...your body is a mystery...it can be so predictable one day but then the next couple months something can change and sometimes it can give off mixed signals...and even though there's no way to tell except time...I think women have the tuition of "just knowing" or "feeling different" and I feel that way...but I agree with you...we got to wait.

I know the dr's are scary...but you not having your period can be something wrong with you. I mean only spotting isn't good. If you are healthy and have no disorders or stressed out like crazy then I'd recommend going to your doctor or a clinic to find out what is wrong with you because it can be something else. Well either way I don't mind if I am pregnant or not...just wish I'd know now. I hope the best for you and hope that you find out what is going on with you. Here is where I went to email a counselor and asked the question I posted here and they emailed me back within 3 days and answered my question. I'd recommend sending an email and be specific about your questions and symptoms and what's going on.

Implantation happens 10-15 days after conception takes place so it's hard to tell. A lot of women don't even have spotting during implantation. I'm sure if you google that question you can get better facts about it. But my first hinter was my breasts becoming not just tender but bigger and veins showing and larger nipples. Then the fatigue, peeing a lot. But they say it can be your PMS but I'm like...how is peeing a lot part of PMS????? Well when I emailed my symptoms to that counselor they emailed me back and said yes to everything and not one single no you might not be...and it wasn't just some woman it was looked over by an M.D. so that was better. Well I'm confident they'll give you the answers you are looking for. Smile)

and thanks! Smile)

Ya I don't know then about the implantation...but I know the people you emailed will. Smile I'm going to buy a test at the store...the First Response 5 days sooner is voted number 1 accurate on the market and was on the news so I'm going to try that first and then even if it says positive or negative I'm going to schedule an appointment for a blood test to confirm. Your numbers with the HCG hormone are supposed to increase a whole lot every day so it's important in the first few months to track those things...but blood tests can be expensive. Well we'll see...I'm so anxious it's driving me nuts!!!! I'll post what the home test says when I do it. Smile) Hope they email you asap to give you some reassurance!! I know it did with me and now I'm more calm about being pregnant since I had a doctor advise me it's highly likely I am. Smile) Well I'm tired and going to take a nap if I can...even though it's only 2pm over here and I woke up at 11am...sad....LOL
