pregnant or all in my head?

For two months me and my fiance have been having alot of unprotected sex. And last month i would be bloated all the time , pee like a race horse, and get slight cramps. My period was unusual because its usually a heavy flow. This time it was much much lighter. I had sore boobies and towards the end of the month i would be nauseous but could not throw up. I took two pt's and a big fat negative. This month i've been bloated, headaches, slight cramps, really gassy, my moods will switch in seconds (from happy to angry and back), and my period was light and more of a dark brown then red. Also i pee alot and im not on any bc. Please help ive never been pregnant before and im nervous to test again. Thanks so much. xo.

My period was 2days late and when it came it started oit brown then turned mucousy and loght red then increased flow and bright red. I took three test throight the past weekand all came negative. Could it even be possible I could be pregnant

Hopeful Mom

If i read all the symptoms of being pregnant, i guess not all of them i'd experience for the past days. I am already 10 days delayed, feel heart burn for a week already, my breast were tender (not that much), had a bloated stomach that i can't even wear my fitted shirts, i pee for a couple of times in a day unlike before. i just hope it will turns out positive, i'll try PT this coming Friday. Wish me luck...

lost my baby

in my pregnancy I was felling slight pain in my hips and I was getting ill a lot I would have very bad cramps and suffer with belly pains after 1 month I lost my baby I was devastated and the pain was terrible but I managed the worst part about it is the emotional side I would get upset about everything through the pregnancy and after

2nd baby on the way

This pregnancy has been...a challenge. I'll put it like that. I'm 12 weeks now, and before I get sick and throw up my chest hurts like nothing else. It literally feels like someone has a hold of my esophagus and they're squeezing it. Everytime my heart beats I can feel it hit my esophageal walls, it's kind of a disturbing feeling. It gets so bad at times where I have to sit down because I can't breathe. It's truly that painful. The only relief is when I vomit, but then it irritates my stomach and diaphragm and makes eating anything difficult. I've lost 12 lbs but I've gained two of them back. Thank God. I had no symptoms but sore breasts and a missed period with my last pregnancy and this one is come with symptoms galore. I wouldn't have it any other way though, I hope the second trimester comes with a vanishing of these symptoms. It sucks being sick at work and at home.
