Pregnancy feelings

I have PCOS along with 4 of my sisters. this is a syndrome dealing with the ovaries and well, it causes you to not have children. 3 months after marriage I am pregnant! I was really tired and dragging home from work. I told my mom and she said, "sounds like you are preggers" it hadn't crossed my mind until then. Sure enough, i was! Now i have two beautiful boys and am wondering if another is on their way. with PCOS I never have monthly periods. usually twice a year but these last few months I have had one about once a month. I didn't have one last month so I took a test and it was negative. 3 actually, a few days a part. I noticed today that I get really dizzy easy, been really hungry and feeling fatter in the middle than normal. I have also been biting my poor hubby's head off more than usual lol. who knows, with us women and all of our hormone issues NOT being pregnant I guess it's really hard to tell haha! Well, i still have baby fat left from the other two so why not add on a 3rd!:

Am I pregnant?

I am 9 days late for AF. Normally before AF I get brown discharge, but nothing. I've been having cramps as if I was on or about to start my period. My boobs and nipples are sore and i've been getting daily headaches. Any advice? Oh and my hubby and I have been TTC for 3 months. Any related experiences? Thanks so much!:)

Am I pregnant??

I can't take preg tests due to a hormone imbalance that I have it will always give me false (+). I was getting all the regular cramping associated with PMS although it was extremely odd for me to be feeling that way 5 days before my period was due. The thing about me is I have an EXTREMLY regular period since I first got it back on my 10th birthday (lovely b-day present), it has been 13 years and has ALWAYS been a 26 day cycle with a 5 day period. I can mark it down to the time of day I will get it. So when i was feeling all the cramps and had no period I got curious...Am I pregnant? So i went back and looked at my calender and realized then when we had sex (unprotected and not on birth control) I was already ovulating and near my most fertile day, then on the 4th day of missing my period. I bled mildly for a single day (1 day). since then I have had cramps, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and when I try to eat certain things i can't even stomach swallowing it. I don't know, am I pregnant
—Guest Gina

I just had my period on the 12th for 4 days, normally Im regular around the 9th everymonth. After my period I still feel bloated and for the past few days peeing quiet oftenm which I normally dont do, back feel like tired like going to have my period. Feeling nauseating but not vomiting and my breast feel larger on my normal bra... Its the 23rd now, do I need to check to the doctor or should I take home pregnancy test first? Im having doubt that Im pregnant, because I just got my period 11 days ago...help?!

could i be pregnant?

I had my tubes tied 9 yrs ago. I'm 3 weeks late, which has never happened. Feeling sick for 3 weeks off and on and my lower backs hurts and bloated and can't get rid of this butterfly in my belly. Feeling really moody all the time and want to cry over dumb stuff. What you all of you think. Could i be?
