I got scared at first because I would have a cycle but I never seemed to "ovulate" like I did as a kid... having the spinnbarkheitt(sp) every month. I even went to the doctor on a couple occasions because I was lactating! Super weird! I was put on Cabergoline Sept of this year and thankfully the lactation went away immediately.
Well apparently it worked well! My last period was Nov on 7th and I'm usually 26 days so I was expecting my period on Dec 3rd. Well to my surprise Dec 3rd came and went but I still felt like my period would start....with all the cramping. My husband even made a joke and said "Sorry babe...I tried to help it go away this month"...little did HE KNOW...lol...the joke was really on HIM!!! After I still didn't see AF arrive, I decided to take a test Dec 6th...and I got a BFP!!!!!! I was soooo shocked and then I realized....OMG...lower back pain...intermittent headaches...lots and lots of gas...abdominal bloating...hot flashes...and nipple soreness!!! OMG I'm pregnant! I just wanted to share with the cyber world because I'm not sharing with anyone else until I go to the doctor on Monday Dec 12th. I just can't believe it...I'm gonna be a mommy. I also took another test this morning....just to be sure..lol...BFP again!!!!
Congrats! We are about the same. My last period was Nov. 12, I am due Aug. 18th 2012.
I also felt like my period was coming, had cramps, still have them. The midwife says "period cramps" are normal in first trimester because the uterus is stretching. Also have lots of gas lol, and abdominal bloating. Just started some nipple sore-ness, no nausea thank god.
Hope your dr. appt. went well!
