Positive Pregnancy Test - ? about symptoms

Hello all!

I've been feeling some nausea (no vomitting), dizziness and just general ickiness lately. I chalked it up to just having some sort of flu-like sickness. I've also been experiencing signs that Aunt Flo is approaching: tender breasts and menstrual cramps. The thought of pregnancy crossed my mind so I took a test tonight and it was positive I keep telling myself that it can't possibly be right and it must be a faulty test! The cramps I've been having have felt EXACTLY like menstrual cramps, so my question is did anyone experience this symptom early in pregnancy? Did it feel exactly like you were about to get your period?

Thanks! I plan to take another test in the morning and will continue to panic and what not until then

Laura the same thing happened to me. I tested positive for pregnancy and I kept thinking it was wrong because I had cramps. The doctor said some people have cramps the first couple of months during the pregnancy when you should be starting. It is very normal during pregnancy.

Thanks for replying, Christy! I keep having these cramps and thinking there's no way I could be pregnant - it's nice to hear that it's normal and common! If tomorrow morning's test is positive too I will believe it LOL!

Thanks again!

I had alot of cramplike discomfort in the first weeks of pregnancy along with alot of bloating. They felt like minor menstrual cramps. This is normal.

Re: Positive Pregnancy Test - ? about symptoms

The first time I got pregnant I had taken three tests and they all came back positive but I didnt believe it because I was having cramps just like my period. I went to the doctor because I was in pain and my period wasnt coming and knew something was wrong. Well she walked in and said we know whats wrong, you are pregnant and I being the ignorant girl I was said NO I am getting my period and theres something wrong and thats why its not coming. She said there is a baby in there and your growing to make room for it, It tends to feel just like period cramps. Thats what happens when your only 20 and get pregnant. Atleast this time I have ten years under my belt so I knew what I was doing.

Re: Positive Pregnancy Test - ? about symptoms

Hi Meg!

That sounds just like me! I have taken 4 tests now and they've all been positive, but I'm still kind of in disbelief! Maybe it's shock! Every time I have a cramp I run into the bathroom to make sure there's no blood. Now that I've almost come to believe I'm actually pregnant ( ) I'm PARANOID that something's going to happen!

Thanks for replying!
