Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms

Updated on April 19, 2016

For many women, the two weeks (or so) between ovulation and their expected period are very stressful. If you are trying to conceive and hoping that your "Aunt Flo" will stay away for the next year or so, or if you are sexually active and hoping to not become pregnant, this time period can put you on edge. Sometimes it seems as though every twinge is a symptom of something bigger, probably pregnancy. If you're like me, you could buy stock in pregnancy tests, which sit waiting until the day of testing. You might keep a calendar or a chart. You're on the edge of your seat, maybe even biting your nails. "Am I pregnant?" You ask yourself time and time again and until you can pee on that little stick, there really doesn't seem to be a solid answer.

I have been pregnant four times, and I can honestly state that the truth of the matter is that most pregnancy symptoms are also signs that your Aunt Flo is going to show up any day. This can be confusing and disconcerting for most women. The only cure is to pee on a stick and/or get a blood test done by your doctor.

I will, however, guide you through some of the most significant signs that you might be pregnant.

Pregnancy begins with implantation

A home test will tell you you're pregnant!
A home test will tell you you're pregnant!

For Those who are Casually Trying to Conceive or Not Preventing Pregnancy

The following symptoms apply to those who are casually trying to conceive as well as to those who are using fertility charting.

Please keep in mind that pregnancy doesn't begin until implantation and that your hormones won't be rising enough to produce symptoms until your fertilized egg has implanted on the uterine wall. Implantation usually occurs roughly 6-12 days after ovulation. If you don't know when you ovulated, you will find it much more difficult to follow your symptoms! Charting is always a good idea, even if you are trying to prevent pregnancy!

I am placing these symptoms in order from most obscure to most well known. You may learn a thing or two!

  • Stuffy Nose

Most women don't know that a stuffy nose is a symptom of pregnancy, but it can be! Keep in mind, however, that a stuffy nose can also be a sign of allergies or illness and needs to be considered in conjunction with other symptoms.

  • Metallic Taste in the Mouth

Dry mouth, with a metallic taste, can be a symptom of pregnancy. In most cases where I have known a woman to have this symptom she has later tested positive for pregnancy! Keep in mind that some medications might contribute to this symptom as well.

  • Dark Blue Veins in the Breasts

Consider your breasts. Are there dark blue veins? Most of the time these veins will be prominent and puffy if you are pregnant, but this can also be a symptom of your menstrual period, so please be aware of your cycles!

  • Increased Sensitivity to Odors

Your sense of smell may increase when you are pregnant!

  • Implantation Cramping and/or Bleeding

Usually this is just light spotting but the cramping can be quite painful. Implantation bleeding occurs for a day or two when the fertilized egg implants on the uterine wall.

  • Headache

Headaches are very common in early pregnancy, but this can also be a sign of illness, stress or a coming menstrual period. If you suspect you might be pregnant, please do not take aspirin or NSAIDs for your pain! Stick with Tylenol, which is safe during pregnancy!

  • Fatique

Fatigue is very common early on in a pregancy as well as during the third trimester. If you are feeling frequently very tired, then you could be pregnant!

  • Morning Sickness

If you find yourself becoming sick to your stomach, this can also be a sign of pregnancy. This symptom can show itself as early as the day of implantation! Remember, too, that feeling sick could also be a sign of illness.

  • A Missed Menstrual Period

In most cases, a missed period is an indication that you are pregnant. However, there are other aspects that can affect this, including stress and simply "getting older." Women in their thirties tend to experience lengthening cycles, and it is possible to have an occasional anovulatory cycle (which means you might need to have your period jump-started medically).

Your baby's development in the early stages will be quite slow.

For Those who are Charting

If you have been charting your cycles while trying to conceive, you will have further indications of your fertility and your possible pregnancy. If you are serious about becoming (or not becoming) pregnant, you should consider purchasing a Basal Body Thermometer (BBT) and taking your temperature every morning at the same time. Your basal temperature is taken when you are at rest and have been sleeping for at least three hours. Your temperature should be taken before you speak or rise in the morning. Temperatures can be taken either orally or vaginally.

See below for resources for trying to conceive and pregnancy.

If you have been charting your fertility, you probably have a good idea of how basal temping works, but I will cover the subject in brief:

  • During your menstrual period and the follicular phase of your cycle (while your follicles are developing and preparing to release an egg), your temperature remains fairly low and, if you are healthy, stable.
  • A few days prior to ovulation, you will begin to see some egg white cervical mucous. This is a sign that you are fertile and could become pregnant. Resources at the end of this article.
  • When you ovulate, your temperature will most likely drop, and then rise sharply. If you are using a charting program like Fertility Friend, you will notice that after two or three days, you will see red cross-hairs, indicating the date on which you ovulated.
  • After you have ovulated, your temperature will usually continue to rise for several days.
  • If an egg has been fertilized, it will implant. When the egg implants on the uterine wall, you will usually see a profound drop in your temperature that will last for only one day.
  • After the drop, you should see your temperature rise and continue to do so if you are pregnant.
  • If you are not pregnant, your temperature will drop below your cover line and your period will show up, beginning your next cycle.

      Really? I had a ton of morning sickness with my youngest. From implantation right to the day I was induced with her I was constantly sick and there was nothing I could do to stop it.

      I've heard the same thing about morning sickness meaning the baby is a girl, too :)

      Very informative hub. I knew that I am pregnant 15 days after it happened. I had an IVF, after transferring the blastocyst in me I had to take a blood test 15 days later and got positive. After I knew that I am pregnant I was trying to see if i will have any symptoms but i didn't have any. I guess every pregnancy is different. Thanks for the hub.

My first period was due and I was a week and half late, this only lasted 2days and few spots of blood for half a day, then next month I was a week late, came on for two days again but continued spotting for two days. I'm really confused my breasts seemed bigger but now me and my boyfriend have noticed they've got smaller, I've been moody and crying over nothing basically and I'm really fed up, some days I can wee more, then some days it will be normal, I'm really confused and would be very thankfull if someone could help me!!

      Hi, I'm a bit confused here?

      Yesterday I had what was a light pink discharge when I wiped myself, this morning I woke up with brown on my tampad. I've already had my period, I'm due sometime in January. Me and my fiancé had sex around 2-3 weeks ago, I've got a stuffy nose that feels like its getting better, been feeling tired frequently & I've got veins showing on my chest, my areola, not sure how you spell it seems to be brown and it's gotten a bit bigger. I can't touch my nipples cause they become very sore. After I had the pink discharge I felt a fluttery feeling in my lower belly & then I had a faint headache that lasted for 2 seconds. Can someone tell me what this means? Could I be pregnant? Xx

      Hi all, my LMP was March 12th and lasted the normal 5-6 days. My next one was due April 9th (i'm fairly regular, every 28-30 days), however a day or so before i had some brown discharge and nothing more for the month of April. To date still nothing, however, today I had what appeared to be brown spotting on my underwear! I've taken 3 hpt's over the last 2 weeks, all of which returned a negative result, despite experiencing early pregnancy symptoms (from what i've read anyway) like increased vaginal discharge, metallic taste in mouth and always very tired. Have appointment with GP on Friday morning, but was just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar and could shed some light. Many thanks;)

      Nicole, the Clear Blue tests aren't as accurate. Go to Walmart and get yourself a cheap test. These are some of the most sensitive tests that you can get. DO NOT purchase one of the digital tests. They aren't sensitive enough unless you're two or three weeks late.

      Best thing you can do is go to a doctor or find a Crisis Pregnancy Center to have a test done. A doctor's tests will be the most sensitive though.

      Implantation doesn't occur until about ten days after ovulation (and after fertilization) so if this was only a week ago, you won't get a positive pregnancy test (or symptoms) until implantation has occurred. This is the point at which you'll see a drastic change in hormone levels.

      EWCM usually occurs immediately prior to ovulation, and most women won't become pregnant on the day that they ovulate.

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      Nausea, dizziness and cramping could all be associated with implantation. Since I don't know when you ovulated, I cannot accurately predict whether or not this is the "right" time for implantation, but in general it occurs about four or five days before your missed period, so it could be. Constipation is probably incidental. Any discharge from the nipples is something to ask your doctor about. This generally occurs later in pregnancy when the body begins to produce colostrum.

      You should take a pregnancy test two weeks after you ovulate (when your next period is due).

      A creamy white discharge sounds like an infection. If you're concerned, you should see your OB/GYN to make sure.

      The discharge wasn't had nothing to it it was a milky white kind of discharge, I've seen on Google that it can be the first sign of pregnancy, just wondering if I should go to the doctors and have a blood test to see wether I'm pregnant

    • Everyday Miracles profile image

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      A pregnancy test is testing for the amount of hCG in your urine or bloodstream. Different tests will show positive at differing levels of hCG in your urine. If you think you're pregnant and have used an inexpensive test (as you've said), double-check the hCG levels at which the test will display positive. You may need something stronger. A blood test will determine pregnancy sooner, but only following implantation. No test will detect pregnancy prior to implantation.

      From what you've described, the cramping and spotting could be implantation, but what you're describing as a milky discharge isn't the same thing as EWCM, which is common in early pregnancy. As I said, a milky discharge is generally a sign of infection.

      I'm not a doctor, so I cannot be certain, which is why I think you should see your doctor. EWCM (egg white cervical mucous) looks just like the white of a chicken egg when you crack it into a bowl. Same texture and consistency as well. It's very stretchy.

      First of all, January 10th would have been much too early to test. You need to give yourself a good 10 days after your ovulation. If you did ovulate on the 3rd, you'd want to test on the 13th at the earliest. That's today. I'd test again today or tomorrow.

      Good luck!

      Okay, so I had sex a few weeks before Christmas. I have been on the pill now for about three years. However, my ex boyfriend and I ended up having sex.

      Just a few days ago I missed a pill and therefore I took two in one day (what I was supposed to do if this were to happen anyway) then later that afternoon I had some darker red spotting/discharge.

      Now today, its still there. I used to be irregular, and that's why I was put on the pill. I'm supposed to get my period next week, when I start my sugar pills. I know people who have irregular periods- it becomes harder for them to get pregnant. I did take a pregnancy test and I'm happy to say it was negative.

      If someone could please just... help me. I don't know what to do. :(

      There are a lot of reasons for cervical bleeding.

      However, you can get pregnant even if you're on the pill. Try taking a HPT and if you're still not sure, see your doctor.

      Exercise can influence your periods and cause cervical bleeding, so it's really hard to tell.

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      No results will be 100% accurate with a home test, but yes, you're still within range for your hCG levels to be high enough to produce an accurate pregnancy test (particularly if you get a positive). Check with your doctor for a blood test and ultrasound if you get a negative and haven't had your period, though. These tests are much more accurate than home tests.

      Have you taken a test?

      Spotting (pink) is perfectly normal during pregnancy (and at other times). The cervix is just adjusting to pregnancy and this happens to many (if not most) women during pregnancy.

      Additionally, *brown* blood is what's known as "old" blood. You're not bleeding, you're just releasing what you've bled in the past. Try not to worry about brown blood at all.

      Hope this helps!

      Go back to the doctor. If you got a positive at home and a negative from the doctor, you may be experiencing a miscarriage or other complication of pregnancy (such as ectopic pregnancy) that needs to be looked at by a doctor. If you're cramping and vomiting, I'd hurry up and get there, just to be on the safe side.

      Hi, my husband and I have been trying to conceive for nine months, this would be our first. My periods are very irregular so it is hard to keep track of ovulation. Although around the first of the month I felt I may have been due to my cm and cramps, I made sure to try and take advantage of that. On the 3rd I left out of state and noticed I was beginning to have breast pain, which grew to be severe and lasting until now which is a more aching pain at this point. I tested on the 9th and got a negative. Then on the morning of the 11th I had pink cm and finally expected my period, it never came. I've been exhausted and slights headaches. Should I take another test? I am terrified it will be negative again. Truly praying for a miracle.

      Definitely test.

      If you haven't already, please see your doctor to determine the reason that your periods are irregular. If you're trying to conceive and there is a medical impediment to conception, knowing will help to increase your odds of becoming pregnant!

      Even on a 28 day cycle you're safe to test with a strong est, Desiree. I'd get a high quality early detection test (FRED should be good) and take that. Make sure you test with FMU (first morning urine). If you get a negative, wait a week and test again (if your period doesn't come before then).

      If you've had a period, you're probably not pregnant, but it never hurts to test. I'd purchase a test from the dollar tree and try that -- they're as accurate as most tests and only cost $1.

      You'll have to define "month" in order to make your question a bit easier to answer. If one has a 21 day cycle, it's possible to have two periods in a month without anything unusual going on. Cycles sometimes change if the follicular phase of your cycle is particularly short one month. Irregularity is quite normal.

      In a 28 day cycle, 10 days after your period, you'd expect EWCM (egg-white cervical mucous) because this mucous occurs shortly prior to ovulation. You're probably about to ovulate (in about three days) but it's hard to know if you don't chart your temperatures.

      It *is* possible to become pregnant if your boyfriend doesn't ejaculate, and this isn't an adequate form of birth control. You can become pregnant at any point in the time between periods, provided that you're fertile during that time period. Since the follicular phase of your cycle is variable, I cannot determine for certain whether or not you could be pregnant. If you fear that you're pregnant, you can take a test in about twelve days (depending on when your period is due).

      i believe i ovulated around Jan 3-8th. We had sex on the 9th. my period is due on the 18th i believe? on the 19th (Sunday) i had the ever little bit of light reddish with clear cervical fluid. and then a tiny bit more. then nothing... i have been take test all come back neg. Then today i was convinced that i was prego, told my husband then 20 mins later red CF again. Told my husband nope i got my period. but now, one more time and now just ever such a pinkish color, so little. I usually get a pretty heavy flow with period. You would think i would know if i was pregnant i have 3 others.... I think i am just very anxious, because i had a miss carriage later September... i just can't relax and stop thinking about it. do you think the timing is right that i may be pregnant?

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      If you ovulated around January 3rd-8th and had sex on the 9th, you cannot be pregnant. You must have intercourse *before* ovulating if you want to become pregnant, not after, so your timing is completely wrong.

      As far as the cervical fluid, it's very possible that your cycles have changed in some way or another. This is very personal, but mine took a drastic turn when I was 32 years old and they've been different ever since. I have very light spotting for up to a week before I get my actual period. If you're getting negative pregnancy tests and are right about the time that you ovulated, you're not pregnant, but it could be a change in your menstrual period. If you're worried about it, consult your doctor.

      The good news is that if you ovulated during that point in your cycle, you're not having a miscarriage.

      The only way to be certain is to take a pregnancy test. It seems like it's possible, if you had sex up to four days before your ovulation (assuming that's what you meant by this).

      You could test today (and your results would be accurate) if you're hoping to be pregnant.

      Good luck!

      I'm sorry, but I must still be confused. Ovulation occurs on a single day, so you cannot be having sex until the fourth day of your ovulation. You may have had sex four days prior to your ovulation (which is during your fertile period) or four days into your fertile period (theoretically the day before you ovulated) but your ovulation is a single event, not a period of time. That's why I'm not understanding.

      If your period is due to today, you could test today and the results would be accurate. If you wish to wait to test, that is entirely up to you.

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      Liz,

      You only ovulate on a single day: Ovulation is not a period of time but an event in your body when the ovary releases the egg into the fallopian tube. What your'e talking about is a "fertile period" during which your body can nurture the sperm until it reaches the released egg.

      Implantation occurs about 10 days following ovulation, so the spotting and cramps probably isn't implantation, unless you're wrong about the date of ovulation. Unless your luteal phase is particularly short, Ovulation probably occurred earlier in your cycle than the 21st.

      Are you charting? That would be helpful in answering your question since it would make it easier to see when you actually ovulated. If you're *not* charting but are trying to get pregnant, you really should be. Fertilityfriend.com should still be free!

      It sounds like you could use an explanation of the female cycle, so let me begin by doing that.

      The cycle comes in four parts: The menstrual period (which is variable in length) at the beginning, the follicular period (which is also variable in length), ovulation (which is a single event) and the luteal period (which is fixed in length) at the end. During the menstrual period, the uterine lining is flushed from the body, taking with it any unfertilized eggs which attempted to implant in it. During the follicular phase, the ovarian follicles develop in preparation to release the egg at ovulation. Following ovulation, the uterine lining develops in order to (potentially) support a growing embryo (the luteal phase) and then it starts all over again.

      No calendar can predict your ovulation for you because of the fact that your follicular phase may vary from cycle to cycle. This is why you need to chart if you're trying to get pregnant. Information on charting can be found on http://fertilityfriend.com

      As for an explanation of different types of bleeding, mine can be found here: https://wehavekids.com/having-baby/bleeding-during...

      You may also find this helpful: https://hubpages.com/health/Am-I-Pregnant-What-Doe...

      It's possible that you spotted during your ovulation, since the blood was brown. Brown blood is often referred to as "old blood" because it's healed blood on the cervix.

      As for the sensation in your cervix, I have no explanation for it, as it's not something I have personally experienced except during a period, and you're clearly not due for a little while yet if you think you've just ovulated.

I'm always tired, peeing too often, had a headache a couple days, want to throw up most times while eatting or after, breast seem bigger but not too sure as throughout the month they always seem to change, constipation and just feel pregnant but the test says im not.

      Even a faint line is still a line. If you got a positive and a negative, trust the positive. False negatives are more common than false positives. Test again with first morning urine to be sure: You should get a stronger line.

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      No. Not if you didn't have sex during your fertile period, since the sperm cannot live in the body for more than five days. It wouldn't be possible if you ovulated on the 20th. I you're not charting, there my be *some* possibility, but two days after your period would be very unusual (even if possible). The cramps you're experiencing on the left side are probably ovulation, or post-ovulation pains.

      Hello there, I have been having a very confusing past couple weeks. Hopefully I can get some better insight :) The first day of my last menstrual cycle was Dec15, putting my ovulation around the 30th, my Husband and I had unprotected intercourse the 28-31st. A few days later flew back home which is a 5 1/2 hour flight (ive heard this could be a factor.. but unsure).. Anywho.. my period should have shown up about the 13 or 14th which it has not.. I have taken quiet a few tests with all negative results.. I'm pretty sure the last one I took was this past wednesday... through out the course of the past couple weeks my symptoms have been fatigue, constipation, slight nausea, headaches, back aches and horrible moodiness (it was unbearable.. crying for no reason, my husband did not know what to do lol) other than those symptoms nothing has popped up.. what was a bit odd was today I had gone to the restroom (apologies for the tmi) but horribly constipated, I had wiped my vaginal area and on the tissue there was a clearish white discharge with a few streaks of pink. Before this I had been laying in bed with a sharp cramp on the right side of my abdomen with the slight nausea and spitting up in my mouth a bit. I am very unclear on what is going on. If I am pregnant this would be my second.. with my first I didn't get a positive until I was about a month and a half.. with implantation bleeding about 2 weeks after conceiving which was what felt like a normal period except a week earlier and lasted only a few days. This time around, no implantation bleeding but one very confusing late period with a heavy feeling in my stomach. Advice would be amazing.. Thank you in advance! :)

      It sounds like you're pregnant. I don't say this often, so let me explain why I'm getting this.

      If you haven't have your period yet, that means one of two things: Either you're pregnant, or your follicular phase has been particularly long during this period. Your luteal phase should be the same every cycle, which means that it's the follicular phase that is variable. Unless you're charting your ovulations (and it doesn't sound like you are), there's no way to know when your ovulation is. The calendar is too-often inaccurate.

      I'll be curious to know whether you get a positive test. False negatives happen all the time. Early, strong positives are the ones you need to worry about.

      Also, if you have another child, your instincts regarding pregnancy are probably pretty accurate by now. Do you think you're pregnant? *Nothing* beats maternal instinct. I knew with my last child that I was pregnant before I could get a positive test.

      The pullout method is not an effective method of birth control. If you don't want to become pregnant but plan to continue having sex, you should choose a more effective form of birth control.

      If you and your boyfriend slept together on the 20th, you wouldn't experience implantation until around the 30th and therefore could not be pregnant until that time (since conception occurs when the fertilized egg implants on the wall of the uterus). You are probably experiencing pre-period symptoms and should expect your period at any time.

      Normal cycles vary from time to time. If you haven't had your period by the 30th, I'd take a test.

      Yes, I most definitely feel like I am.. but here is the new problem.. after this post last night my cramps got a little stronger. I woke up this morning bleeding.. heavily.. dark and thick blood. with what looks like blood clots.. so far there have been two a bit larger in size.. one about an inch long and the other could have been maybe a half inch longer. My first thought was "Oh my god.. Im having a miscarriage!!!" I haven't been able to see a doctor yet and probably wont be able to until my husband gets back from underway this coming wednesday. The cramps were quite harsh this am. leading me to take a pain killer to ease it. Though.. the odd thing.. I still feel pregnant.. My stomach still feels full and "warm".. though i am assuming if I were to have a miscarriage then my body wouldn't seem any different for a couple of days. I am at a loss of feelings at the moment.. unsure and quite honestly I dont think it will sink in until my husband gets home and I see his face to the possible news.

      It's possible that you're having your period too. Keep that in mind. Sometimes our minds trick us into thinking that we're pregnant and until a pregnancy is confirmed by a doctor, there's no way to be certain (even with a good HPT).

      With my daughter, I had heavy bleeding and still gave birth to a (relatively) healthy child afterward, but I don't remember experiencing any cramping during the bleeding phase. Bleeding doesn't necessarily mean miscarriage, though bleeding and cramping generally does.

My HCG level was down to 8 on the 16th of January. Had sex 17-19 and 24th of January. On the 26th I had some cramping and at 2 different times I had a little bit of brown discharge. Thought Af was going to show but didn't. My boobs are sore now have been very tired gums bled during brushing my teeth. Have dizzy spells for the last couple of days.Had sex the 24-25th of January. I never spot at anytime before AF and I'm usually bloated a week before my AF but do not have that symptom. My boobs are never sore before AF either.

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      I can't answer your question without knowing how long your cycle is. Assuming that your cycle is 28 days long (which is four weeks), you probably ovulated around the 20th, which means that at the earliest you would have implanted today. Given that these numbers are far from precise, brown spotting on the 27th *could* have been implantation.

      You won't get a positive pregnancy test until after you've implanted and begun producing hCG (hormone found in the urine and blood of pregnant women). If you think you're pregnant, test tomorrow first thing in the morning (or after five hours without drinking or urinating).

      The two weeks between ovulation and period are known as the "two week wait" because you probably won't get a positive test before then (due to the timing of implantation). You wouldn't have gotten a positive last week because you probably hadn't implanted (unless you had a very short follicular phase of your cycle).

      When the bleeding is brown, that usually means that it's older blood coming from your cervix. It may even be left over from your previous period. In other words, it's probably completely harmless. Unless you're cramping along with it, I wouldn't worry. If you *are* worried, call your doctor just to make sure.

      The blood you want to worry about is red -- usually even redder than during your period. Combined with cramping, this indicates miscarriage. The more oxygen in the blood, the more red it is. The less oxygen in the blood, the more brown it is. What you're experiencing isn't oxygenated so it probably doesn't indicate a problem.

      It could potentially be implantation spotting, but I'd wait until later in the month to take another test, considering when you had your last period. You'd have had to have a very short follicular phase for that to be the case.

      Let me know how it turns out or you, but one way or another, it doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about.

      I wish you the best of luck. As I said, implantation bleeding is possible. Tiredness and headaches are common during winter months. Bloating not so much, but that could depend on a number of factors. Definitely make sure that you're drinking enough.

      Clear Blue Easy is *not* a good test in many cases. Try a different brand. Your cycle is your cycle, regardless of what's considered "regular."

      That being said, while I don't have any personal experience with Depo, I do know that it can really mess with your system. I've personally talked to women who were menopausal in their early twenties as a result of this birth control shot. Have you talked to your doctor about these short cycles?

      Take a HPT first thing in the morning and try different brand of test. Even something purchased from a discount store may give you better results than the Clearblue. They have a very iffy reputation and can be hit or miss. Use a non-digital test for sure. They're more accurate.

      Yes, you're testing too soon. You want to test at 10 DPO at the earliest. It's better to wait at least 12 and make sure that you're testing with FMU. Test again in a couple of days and make sure that it's been at least five hours since you last used the toilet when you do. You'll get a more accurate result.

      Otherwise, it sounds like you're pregnant! Good luck!

      If you haven't tested, I'd go ahead and do that.

      Cycles change dramatically sometimes. Mine has been through some serious twists and turns over the years. It's possible that something has changed for you. Still, it's possible that you're experiencing implantation bleeding, as it's only twelve days dpo. Test and see what results you get. If it's negative, wait until AF is due and see whether it comes. If not, you might want to talk to your doctor.

      See a doctor. It definitely sounds like pregnancy but if you're getting negative tests, that could be a sign that something's wrong. Were the three tests all the same brand? From the same box? They could be duds, but it's best to get a blood test to make sure.

SoMething tells me that I'm pregnant coz I shud be having my period last Feb 25 ( I have those calendar thingies that help me keep track of my fertile days) and I'm pretty sure Feb 17 wasn't a fertile day for me. I still don't have my period and the last time I tested was march 6 and I got a negative. What do you think?

      Cheap isn't always bad but if they were all in the same box you might have just had a bad batch. If you can afford to, try another test before you see your doctor just for confirmation. Use First Morning Urine to test (five hours since you last used the toilet) and follow the instructions exactly. Too much urine will wash the stick out as well, so you may wish to try dipping instead.

    • Everyday Miracles profile image
      Author

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      It doesn't sound like you're pregnant, atelectasis. A number of things may cause your period not to come. If you're just keeping track with a calendar, you may wish to start temping your chart as well. Even a bio rhythmic cycle could have caused your cycles to change, especially given your age. If you're concerned, see your doctor for confirmation. No symtoms + negative pregnancy test probably mean you're not pregnant.

      Good luck!

      If I had spottings between March 5 to 8--- is it possible tht an egg implanted by that time after our last act on feb 17 or is it too late and too impossible?

      PS. Had moments of queasiness hours ago and was peeing a lot than usual.. Maybe it ws because of the buko juice.

      atelectasis, an HPT should be 99% accurate in most cases when used properly and is more likely to give you a false positive than a false negative, as far as I'm aware. If you still get a negative and your period hasn't arrived, definitely check with your doctor.

      I'd say that March 5-8 is too late for implantation bleeding, but there are other reasons that the cervix might bleed during early pregnancy /if/ you are in fact pregnant. What brand of test are you using?

      Indigestion is /definitely/ a symptom, but it tends to come later in pregnancy when there's more pressure on the internal organs. Hot flashes /may/ be as your temperature rises during pregnancy but I never had real hot flashes during pregnancy. I have gotten minor hot flashes during periods though.

      The first day of my last period was 02/19/14. My periods are relatively short and only last about 3-4 days. I have a 28 day cycle. My husband and I had unprotected sex on march 1st (I believe this is around the day I ovulated, because of the egg white discharge I had that morning) We also had sex on march 6th which would still be in the "ovulation window". Since then I have had light cramping, stuffy nose, headaches, and white globs of CM. CM discharge is very light now. my period isn't due till next Wednesday. Could I be pregnant?

    • Everyday Miracles profile image
      Author

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      First of all, let me clear up one thing for you, particularly if you're trying to get pregnant (or to avoid it).

      Your fertile window happens BEFORE your ovulation, not after it. So you're fertile for up to five days PRECEDING your ovulation. You won't conceive after you've ovulated. Ovulation ends the fertile period and leads into the luteal phase of your cycle, which is the phase during which implantation would occur.

      If what you're telling me is that you believe the 1st started your fertile window, you probably ovulated on the sixth. Most women won't become pregnant from having sex on the day of their ovulation, so if you have become pregnant, it would have been due to sex on the 1st.

      Assuming you ovulated on the 6th (which is how I'm reading your question), the likelihood that you've implanted by the 13th is relatively slim (as that's only seven days and it's generally 8-12 DPO before implantation occurs). However, since it's fair to assume you're not temping and charting, I'd say that your symptoms DO appear to be consistent with early pregnancy.

      You can test as soon as the 16th if you're eager to find out, but be sure to follow the test instructions very carefully and to use First Morning Urine to do your test. Check with the recommended websites for information about which tests are the "strongest."

      It could be PMS. If your period doesn't come by the time it's due for the next cycle, talk to your doctor. Periods can change with age or stress levels.

    • Everyday Miracles profile image
      Author

      Becki Rizzuti 3 years ago from Indiana, USA

      It depends on when you believe pregnancy begins. If pregnancy begins with implantation, you couldn't be pregnant yet, as implantation occurs between 8 and 12 days post ovulation. You can test about two days after that. I'd say the 11th and 12th were probably in your fertile window if you're fertile mid-cycle.

      The only way to really keep track of this is to track your temperatures via a charting service like fertility friend. Then you'll know when to attempt to conceive.

      You're saying that you ovulated on March 8th? How do you know that you ovulated? By which I mean, are you temping and charting or did you have other symptoms associated with ovulation (such as cramping)? What color is the spotting (pink, red, brown)?

      Spotting can be one of several things, most of which aren't concerning. For example, I spot for about four days prior to the arrival of Aunt Flo. If the blood is bright red (highly oxygenated and fresh), I'd recommend seeing your doctor. Otherwise, check this out (it's mine):

      Okay, Ive been on the ortho evra patch for about eight months now, and I have been having unprotected sex for about five months. I have never felt the way that I'm feeling now! It feels as if something is floating around in my stomach. I have slight pains in my lower and upper back. The bottom right side of my belly sometimes twitches. I have had slight headaches for about a week now but the pains are very short and mild. For some odd reason, I have been crying a lot lately and people have been hurting my feelings. My boyfriend say that I'm always jumping the gun now. I'm always catching attitudes with him for no reason at all... My breast have veins appearing in them also. I sleep a lot, which is something that I've always done. I have took 2 pregnancy test within the last month and they both said negative. My instincts are just telling me that I'm pregnant.

      If you're still getting periods, you're still ovulating, so it's worth it to test.

      While I was in the relationship for ten years I did ttc however without any luck. Now my period is twice or three times in a year,what are the chances of having a baby at my age. Still having the symptoms, I think I'm to old now for a baby.

      This is just me overthinking probably. But anyways. I am recently married. I have had the WORST month of my life bc of back pains, feeling sick, and cramping. I am on my period so I don't think I can be pregnant. I was 2 and a half days late on having my period am it's been extremely heavy and painful compared to the past. My beast have been way to sore to even put on a reg bra lately just been using sports bar. They have blue vines showing but idk my vines show up easily so idk if it's always been like that or not. I have been feeling sick to my stomach a lot but mainly when eating or running. My husband says Iv been getting a belly but I figured that's bc Iv been eating more and not working out as much bc I'm getting a feeling like I will b sick but it just goes away after a while. I didn't know runny nose could be pregnant sign but Iv been taking allergy pills at night bc my nose as been running a lot Like I said I'm on my period but all the sign of being pregnant are here. Can I be pregnant? Or is it just a bad monthly period. If so, Should I be worried about a bad monthly period?

      It *is* possible to bleed if you are pregnant, but a particularly heavy bleed is never a good sign.

      REGARDLESS, you should see your doctor, because if you are bleeding and pregnant, that could be a sign of miscarriage or other problems, and particularly heavy menstrual periods can be an indication of other problems as well. Definitely talk to your doctor!

      Hi, I'm so glad I found such an informative site! I was hoping you could help me. I am 44 yrs old and have been on Seasonique for 6 months. I spoke to my doctor about getting pregnant and she said just go right off of Seasonique and start having lots of sex for the next few months and see how that goes. So I went off of it Feb 4th and did not have my period. We had unprotected sex Feb 18 and 19th. It's now March 5th and still no period, last night I saw the clear egg white discharge, I woke up this morning with a stuffy nose that went away, breast have blue veins (not sure if they are always like that), I'm bloated and peea lot, but I tend to have both of those anyway. Do you think I'm pregnant? My fiancé and I would actually love to conceive. Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

      There is some info on here that isn't true. The day of ovulation and only 12hrs just after you suspect ovulation occurred, you can still get pregnant. Many doctors say the best time is the day before and day of. And also, pregnancy signs can occur before implantation as well, but minor barely there signs or intuition... The egg fertilizes then implants... The fertilization can cause changes in body just days before implantation. But most of the time you won't notice anything, only those in tune with their bodies like a handbook would notice changes very early. And I'm proof of all the above too. Confirmed with several drs and now with my BFP. Know your stuff and enjoy sexy time with your man and it will work. :o)

      I had unprotected sex on june 4. About 6 days after that I had a brown spot in my underwear. Since that day I've been really tired. I don't usually take naps but since that happened I've been taking naps everyday. Its also hard for me to fall asleep at night. I've also noticed my areolas are slightly darker than before. I have been really moody lately and light headed. I haven't took a pregnancy test yet but I will soon. I am 15 and I want to know if I'm pregnant. Can you help me?

      Hi! So I've been using Nuvaring for at least 5 months, and I forgot to take it out when I was supposed to and it was in for an extra week, so it had been in for a little over 5 weeks. My boyfriend and I never use a condom and he ejaculates in me.(sorry, but it needed to be included).. I took it out a week ago. Recently I've had headaches, a stuffy nose, sore throat, hip pains, lower back pain, my legs ache, slight cramps and I'm always tired, and I'm always hungry. Also last Friday,I had pink dishcharge and the next day I wiped and there was a tiny bit of blood. Yesterday at work, I was upset over the silliest things, all I wanted to do was cry and then a few hours later I was in a happy mood. My cramps gradually became stronger and I started bleeding, not as much as I normally do on my period, but enough that I have to change my pad every few hours or so( not that it's full, but I don't wanna sit in blood for a very long time). I had to call off work because my cramps really hurt, my back and hips still ache and my head really hurts. My lower abdomen is sensitive. I've taken two tests and they both came up negative..

      I'm not sure what's going on, not sure if I was pregnant, not sure about anything but any information you could give me would help!

      Well I have some problems myself. On February 9th I started my menstrual cycle and it ended on February 11th. So after that in the same month my breast became real tender and sore and I also got sick with certain things I smelled and I wouldn't eat anything for a whole 2 days. So a couple days after that I started having abdominal pain right in the bottom of my stomach and I started discharging slippery white stuff for 1 day and I was being very tired all the time so the next month on March 10th through 14th I started bleeding and I don't have sore breast anymore can anybody tell me what is going on please.
