I am new to the boards and I have a quick question. I have been having severe cramping 7dpo and have been having some symptoms of pregnancy. I was wondering could I be pregnant? I have been noticing that the cramping comes and goes but it gets so bad to where I just feel like all I want to do is sleep or lie down all day long. I have had them all weekend long and don't know if this could be a sign that i am prego. I did have my tubes clamped back in june of 2004 but my doctor told me that there would be a slight chance I could still get pregnant. I have noticed the dark blue lines on my boobs and the little bumps around my nipples. Also I have just been so tired lately that I don't feel like doing anything. I have a 9 month old now and am a sahm. i haven't been under any kind of stress lately so I'm just really confused. Also my boobs have been very sensitive to touch and my last af was only 2.5 days and very light. Which is really odd b/c it is always really heavy and about 5-6 days long. Please if anyone has any advice please help me!!!
yes the cramping is similar to what I used to get with my af. I haven't gotten them since I had my daughter Last April. I have noticed that the cramping has slacked off but I just don't know if it could be or not. Plus I don't have any insurance b/c I lost my job back in September due to my dd getting very sick and being put into Duke Children's Hospital for two weeks. TIA
Ok now it has been 2 days since I have posted anything but I am still having the cramping but it has slacked off a good bit. I have also noticed that I have not been able to look and smell some foods and have found that my breasts are even more tender than they were a couple days ago. Is it possible that I am pregnant? Should I take a test now or wait until a couple days before I am supposed to start? I am due to start on the 21st or 22nd. If anyone else is in the same situation please respond. thank you
a test may not show up yet. I would wait to see if you miss your AF and then take a test. I know there are those tests that say you can test up to 5 days before your missed AF, but I don't believe in them. I used the first response test 2 times during the week of my missed AF and they came out BFN. I waited til the beginning of week 2 and finally a faint BFP lol. The early response ones did not work for me. I would save the money and wait at least til you miss AF next week. good luck
