No I have not experienced any types of preganancy symptoms only cramps but that's about it and I feel bloated but I think it's caused from my period coming

My period isnt due for 3-4 days but I feel like I could be pregnant bc of subtle signs. First, sore breasts but this can be either. Second, been moody. Third, been really tired and just wanna relax. Today, I didnt sleep until 9am. Woke up at almost 3pm, very clammy, mind you, and I am wide awake but still feeling like I wanna lay down. I took a pregnancy test last night it was negative. At that point this was 4 days before my missed period... Kinda confused because I was almost sure it would say +. Me and my husband had intercourse almost every day I was fertile... And aside from that, I had a sharp pain in my lower abdomen 2 days ago.. I believe it was only once but I think I just passed it as being gas -shrug- I am going to post again soon and let readers know of my results. I guess my biggest indication that I could be pregnant is the lack of energy and feeling tired lately. Wish me luck!

Well the past few days I noticed my boobs started hurting and soon after that I started feeling a weird sick feeling I get nauseas but nothing comes out then I started having back pains and about 6:30 that night I got so tired that I was about to pass out plus added with dizziness. This morning I really feel achy in my stomach and just don't feel well at all my boobs still hurt I'm still dizzy my stomach it tightening it's so weird and when I laughed it hurt inside like I was going to pop something. And I had the littlest cramping at the beginning of my symptoms what do you ladies think ??

I think i'm pregnant

I have been having hot flashes, runny nose, sore breasts, lack of sleep at night, frequent urination, and last month for the first time 2 periods in 1 month...
—Guest Nay-Nay


I've been feeling so tired lately and my stomachs been aching. I've been nausea but no throw up. I've had lots of headaches but I don't know if I am pregnant or not. My period is suppose to come next week. I don't want to get my hopes up because I've had many disappointments :/ but last week I was cramping, not too bad and I am kinda gasy also which is embarrassing. But I don't know, I'll have to wait till next week.

Increase in libido

I always feel like having sex and also feel sharp pain in my lower abdomen each time I do it. My breasts became bigger & fuller, then I started feeling light headed, so I had a test and it was positive.
