kbequette08:  Those can be pregnancy symptoms, or they can be symptoms of PMS/your period or even just a cold/flu or even things like cysts.  No way to know until you can take another test.  When is your period due?

I had implantation bleeding but absolutely no other symptoms that early.  Honestly IMO, if you’re pregnant enough to have actual pregnancy symptoms you should test positive on an HPT.  Real pregnancy symptoms (like nausea, heartburn, etc) usually come around or after your missed period.  Not sure when you felt some of these, but it takes at least a week (more likely 9-12 days) for an egg to implant, so no way to have symptoms until after that.

There’s no way to know except by testing.  Unfortunately, PMS can and does do all those things you mentioned, as does early pregnancy.  They’re basically exactly the same as far as symptoms go.  As for your stomach, it’s just bloating.  The uterus is hidden behind your pubic bone so even if it had a little bean in it, there is no way it could show already.  Bloat, however, is like that one party guest that shows up early and then won’t leave lol! 

Test in the morning with a FRER.  No other way to know.  Good luck!

kbequette08:  You could be, I would try testing after your period is late.  I didn’t get a positive until I was 20 days late.

Could be. My friend conceived on Halloween and took several tests with negative results until the end of Novemember.

I’d wait until AF is late. It could be phantom symptoms, it could be pregnancy. Honestly, we can only speculate. You should wait until AF is late so the test is more accurate.

i have had lots of months were i “thought” i was pregnant and i wasn’t.  Considering you have never been pregnant i’m not sure how you would know what it felt like. 

Pregnancy symptoms mimic PMS.  Often you dont feel “real” symptoms until after your period.  So test again in 2 days.

I didn’t have any symptoms until I was 6 weeks pregnant.

kbequette08:  The times that I had MAJOR pregnancy symptoms- and the test was negative- are time when I had ovarian cysts.  I felt MORE pregnant with the cysts- than I did at the beginning of my pregnancies.

Also- my first pregnancy, I still got the lightest line on the test when I was about 7-8 weeks.  I don’t know if it was particular test- or what— but this pregnancy I tested much sooner and the line was extremely dark.

It’s possible you might be pregnant- but we aren’t going to able to tell you!!
