@notmebee:  *pre-existing conditions don’t exist anymore if you are in the US, I think! Right???

Also, it is pretty early to be THAT symptomatic. Once your brain thinks you pregnant, it’s all over…lol. Definitely test with FMU, then start thinking of logical reasons for your symptoms (traveling, ate something wrong, hungry, whatever!) and see if they go away. If you don’t get AF, DEFINITELY test again =)

@notmebee:  If you need to take something for your headache, take Tylenol. But I definitely wouldn’t take Advil! Don’t worry about the 2.5 beers, I had a beer in my last TWW too! =) Have you heard of the “drink til it’s pink” club?? Try not to stress =)

To ease your mind a little, nausea typically doesn’t start until you’re about 5/6 weeks along, it kicks in when the placenta starts forming and hormones are raging, at least for the pregnant women I’ve known (and my own personal experience). If you’re charting, does that mean you’re temping as well? Perhaps you can tell by your temps, if they are still high or not.

@ChuckNorris:  I am! I always feel bad creeping into the threads and then popping back out, I’ll dip my toes in again. 🙂

@notmebee:  Don’t let that second temp rise fool you! I never got one with my pregnancy! My temps stayed up and crested higher until one small dip (not past the coverlines, though) the morning before I tested. I tested at 10dpo for a bfn, and then 12dpo with a positive.

a UTI could account for both the urge to pee and the nausea.  If you don’t get a BFP it might be worth getting checked out for that.

I’m in the camp that if the pregnancy hormones (HCG) are present and high enough to cause obvious symptoms, they are typically high enough to register on a test.  And my first symptoms came the evening before my positive test, fwiw.  You are definitely still early though, so anything is possible.

I’d say especially since you’re out of town for work and your routine/meals/sleep, etc are all likely affected as a result, I honestly wouldn’t stress about pregnancy just yet (though I know it’s impossible not too!)  Best of luck to you!!

Pregnancy is not allowed to be a pre-existing condition (from Gov’t page): 

Are there illnesses or injuries that cannot be subject to a preexisting condition exclusion?

Yes, as follows:

  • Pregnancy, even if the woman had no prior coverage before enrolling in her current employer’s plan.
  • Conditions present in a newborn or a child under 18 who is adopted or placed for adoption (even if the adoption is not yet final), as long as the child is enrolled in health coverage within 30 days of birth, adoption, or placement for adoption. In addition, the child must not have a subsequent, significant break in coverage (defined as 63 days). For instance, a significant break might occur if a parent lost his job and health coverage for himself and his family shortly after a child’s birth. This break will be discussed below.
  • Genetic information. For example, if a woman is found to have a gene indicating she is at a higher risk for breast cancer, she cannot be denied coverage if there is no diagnosis of the disease.

That was from the Department of Labor page.  Also I was told this when we were TTC and I was switching jobs.  I asked my new employer’s insurance and they confirmed that pregnancy is not a legal pre-existing condition so don’t worry about that.  I wish these things were more transparent so that people didn’t have to worry.

If it is any help I was SO SURE I was pregnant last cycle… I mean totally sure. Smells were crazy boobs hurt like crazy and nausea. Totally pregnant right? Nope. AF came right on time. Sorry for any extra stress this is causing you! I hope you get some answers soon!

@travellingfool:  I believe that’s only for employer-based plans. Private policies can, sadly, exclude anyone ( except children) for anything.  My husband is now an independent contractor so we had to look for individual insurance plans this month, but we are both uninsurable– me because of the pregnancy and him because of “spousal pregnancy.”  It has been a nightmare, and with all of the major insurance companies too ( blue shield, anthem, Aetna, Cigna, heath net, etc.). Luckily I can go on my work plan, even though open enrollment isn’t until next year.

@Mrs. Aardvark:  I have also had all the symptoms and been completely convinced, only to get AF a day late. I just have some days where I have to pee ALL the time, and I was nauseas, so fatigued, etc, but it was nothing. So, it’s really probably nothing, though it’s possible. You just won’t know until AF is due. 

 

@notmebee:  I hear you on stressing about what to take/drink/eat until you get AF. Like Chuck Norris said, I’d take Tylenol, not Advil, but not worry too too much. I hope it works out how you want it too.
