More questions about symptoms and signs. Please help I don't know what to think!
I really think I may be pregnant. My period came but it was 3 days early and was abnormal for me. Some people will probably think I'm crazy but my story isn't that much different from a lot of woman who have experienced pregnancy, is it?
I think I am pregnant from Jan 1st-2nd. Someone told me by now my pregnancy should show up on an HPT, but it hasn't. I took 2 First Response Early Result Pregnancy tests 1 day apart, and both were negative. I took one Tuesday Feb 3rd and Thursday Feb. 5th.
My cycles are normally 35 days long (from first day of period to day before period starts).
Today, at work, I was standing, and I got this weird feeling that my stomach was just really "heavy" or filled up. My breasts are not very tender or anything, but days before I started my "period" and through it, they were more painful and tender than they have ever been. Also, when my nipples get hard, I have these tiny white bumps that have been there for a few days or more. They do not itch or hurt but they make my nipple look white only when they are hard (sorry to be graphic). Also, I have discoloration and it's almost like the whole colored part of my breast (the areolas) have expanded a little above and below (I hope that makes sense). I also have blue veins that are visible going through my areolas and around them but it seems like the veins are less visible when my nipples harden. I've had a lot of gas lately and some mild abdominal cramps off and on which I've had since I had my "period". It seems like I've headaches more often than usual, too. I feel bloated a lot as well and have had a great deal of back pain recently. I also have had some cramps in my thighs and calves off and on. Everything I have experienced has just been weird and it's stuff I've never noticed before.
Now I know people can imagine they have something to where they can actally produce symptoms, but I don't think I can MAKE more veins appear in my breasts, or bumps on my nipples and around my areola's appear. What is going on? I bought an off brand pregnancy test called Reality from Meijer which I probably should've bought like an EPT one or something, but I'm going to take it tomorrow morning. Until then, can ANYONE out there give any advice? I know I have posted a lot of questions but I just don't know if everything I've described are PG symptoms or not and I just want to know what everyone thinks. I'm not stressing about it so I don't think I'm giving myself symptoms, I just WANT to know. I'm in highschool as well, but I am responsible and am not worried about the consequences if I am b/c I will take care of it.
Anyway, thanks for listening and PLEASE respond! Thank you so much.
