pregnancy or horrible case of PMS
We just started ttc this month, and I had ewcm and slight cramps so I knew I was about to ovulate. We of course did bd on those 5 nights well any way after the first night when I woke up in the morning I felt awful, crampy, bloated and a terrible urge to go to the bathroom all day long. This carried on for days i just felt really uncomfortable like I had a ton of water retention. I even went to the dr. because I thought I had a bladder infection, came back negative though. I started to feel a bit better but i still feel really bloated and just swollen everywhere I haven't put on weight but I feel like I have gained about 10 or so. AF is due on the 20th so this could all be a horrible case of pms but has anyone ever experienced anything like this. I don't have any other symptoms except the bloat. I never felt like this at all when I had my first baby. Could this be a sign of pregnancy. How early can I test. I know with my fist baby I tested a week before and I had a positive result. I am just excitied to know

i wanted to post as the urine thing sounds familiar to me the first time i was pg (ended in m/c) i went to the doc a week before af was due with ? urine infection i just had a heavy feeling when i went for a wee no burning or usual uti symptoms just heaviness there was also a trace of protein. a week later got bfp. so it could be a bfp for you. I also had early symptoms this pg i had cramps 5 days post o and nausea 4 days before af was due. Good luck for bfp.

Re: pregnancy or horrible case of PMS
weepyone, did you have any other symptoms at all with the first pregnancy I don't seem to have any other that that. I just did a test I could't wait it was negative but I think I jumped the gun because AF isn't due until the 20th a bit early don't you think? I guess I should really wait until it is due.

i had constipation and trapped wind bad first pg as well as the urine thing. This pg i am 17 weeks and i had cramps 5 days post o and nausea 4 days before af was due and constipation again and from due day of af i was tired terribly. i guess each pg is different. good luck for the 20th hope my info helps :)

Re: pregnancy or horrible case of PMS
I am sad to say that I feel a bit better today, I have been experiencing back pain which is not normal for me but the urge to urinate all the time is gone now I think I am just experiencing an odd month, and my breasts are heavy and full but not at all sore so I guess it was just wishful hoping for us this month. This will also only be my second month off of bc so my body is more than likely getting use to that. AF is due on the 20th and I have been charting my body temps and I am 10 days past ovulation and have not had a rise and I did a test first thing this morning and it was negative. I bought one of those early predictor tests where it can be 4 days before AF is due. I have to say this is just about the worst pms I have ever had I even cried the other day for no reason crazy or what.

Re: pregnancy or horrible case of PMS
Thanks for sharing your experiences with me, I am just so excited and wish I was already. How long before AF did you test?
