: Hi everyone! How early do symtoms start? I'm not expecting my period for another week but I have been feeling sick to my stomach and my breasts are in such pain (I've never had such pain before my periods)! Also I have been having terrible headaches. Could I be pregnant, and do you have any advice as to which pregnancy tests are the best (and can be used earliest) other than blood tests? I appreciate any help!
My symptoms started really early: my breasts hurt (like 1 week after having become pregnant)!! I knew I was pregnant because it was
different from usual (and we were trying to get pregnant.) I tried using a home preg. test early,
but it turned out negative (too early I believe.) But I knew I was pregnant, so I waited until the day
after my period should have come and tried again...voila...it turned out positive!! That's when I
called up my doc. to make a prenatal appt.
I think any home pregnancy test sold at the stores these days are pretty good. If that turns out
positive then go to a doctor or clinic for a recheck and for prenatal care. Good luck :) LynnB
PS: I know that the waiting to find out part stinks!
