I went off of the pill several years ago and I was terrified that I was pregnant because I had so many weird symptoms. It takes awhile for your body to get back to normal. That doesn’t mean that you’re not pregnant though! If your period is delayed, I would take a test.

First sign of pregnancy for me was constipation which is apparently a companion throughout your pregnancy.  I didn’t start feeling nauseaous until a week after I missed my period and let me tell you that I had the worst morning sickness. Sorry, but throwing up and the runs sounds like you got a touch of food poisoning.

Stop evaluating random symptoms which may or may not be signs of pregnancy.  Get out of the house and enjoy a glass of wine or something else like raw sushi which will be practically forbidden once you get your BFP.  At the very least it will make the waiting easier.  Smile

I was so sure that I was going to get my period that I went out and bought a bottle of wine and a box of tampons.  I got a positive on the First Response Early Result (commonly called FRER on the TTC/pregnancy boards) a few days later.

I had period cramps, period moodiness, and typical marathon training fatigue- because I was actually training for another marathon when we started TTC.  I didn’t think much of it, since anyone who goes out and jogs 13 miles is probably going to be pretty tired!

If I were you, I’d go out and buy a pack of FRER.  They are the best ones at detecting pregnancy before your period is supposed to start.  I bought a pack of 3, since everyone who is TTC has an overwhelming urge to pee on sticks.  I had already tested negative with a clear blue easy as well as a dollar store test, however as far as I know the ones I purchased were not marketed for use BEFORE a missed period.

If you get a BFP (big fat positive) then you’re definitely pregnant.  If you get a BFN (negative) then either 1-you’re not pregnant, OR  2-you might be pregnant but not far enough along to detect with urine.

Coming off the pill, some people have a few long & wonky cycles as their bodies adjust.  Some people don’t ovulate on their own for a month (or several) so if you test negative but still don’t get your period, don’t sweat it!  If you don’t get a period or a positive after, say, 45 days, it might be time to call your doctor.
