29 days..

I'm 29 days late on my period. I took a test like 3 and a half weeks ago because I was feeling very nauseous but it was negative. I've been extremely tired, constipated, boobs are getting bigger, and I've been breaking out on my face some. Oh and ive been having crazy mood swings!! I'm pretty nervous to take a test again just because it'll be my first baby if I am pregnant. I'm having mixed emotions, just ready to find out for sure!!

Hi, I'm 37 and almost 7 weeks with my first pregnancy. I'm excited and scared all at the same time. I had some brown discharge for about a week after I tested positive, but apparently that's not that uncommon. I've had some dizziness, but nothing too crazy. Had breast tenderness but that's already easing. But I am sooooo tired!!

Not a clue whats happening

i feel nausea, tired, bloated, hot flushes at night, eat when i feel like it, struggle to sleep at night but yet i did a test and it shows negative. Is it in my mind or can it be early?

My feeling in early pregnancy

I felt very sick, always vomiting and not being able to eat. But now i don't know if I am pregnant, my period is late with one week. Can I be pregnant? Because I lost my first baby a day after birth two months ago so I really need a baby right now.

Could i be pregnant?

I feel nausea rvery night last 3-4 nights i havent been on the nuva ring since may had a normal period last month im 2 days late so far been cramping having lower back pain sore nipples and think i may have a yeast infection. I hv 3 kids already but nvr felt like this w them.
—Guest Jess

could i be pregnant

I have been having abdominal pain for a little over a week and lower back pain. People are saying maybe an UTI but I don't have those symptoms. I want to be pregnant but feel so disappointed that I won't be so I feel I have given up on the thought. Other symptoms are tender nipples, swelling feet, no appetite, and a Lil moody could I be pregnant? My period is not due until another 10 days and doctors appt on Aug 6th such a long wait!
