Early pregnancy symptoms?

Asked by tan235 (877points) May 23rd, 2011

Does this sound like early pregnancy symptoms or period symptoms.
The two are so closely related it seems.

I would be 4 weeks now, my period is due in 2 days.
I know I should just wait but I’m nervous.

So I’ve been feeling nauseous for the past week maybe, weird feelings in tummy and really bloated, like I look 4 months pregnant I’m so bloated – my breasts were sore about 2 weeks ago, but are not anymore but feel bloated also, which I know is a sign of period – so how do you tell the difference?
I have a slight cough and sore throat which I’m told can also be an early sign, I could be pregnant but it’s very slim given time frame and when I ovulate.

Anyone have any thoughts?
I definitely feel sick, but that could be nerves?

I mean it could be pregnancy, but it very well could just be your period and a host of other things too. Try not to stress out about it, there’s nothing you can do at the moment anyways. In fact stress can actually make your period come late (or so I’ve been told).

(In the future wrap it up or get on BC of some kind, so you don’t have to worry about this)

yeah….. agreed… wrapping it up helps!

Early pregnancy symptoms can be very similar to PMS symptoms and there’s really no way to know for sure until your period comes or doesn’t come. With that in mind, the breast soreness 2 weeks ago would probably not have been an early pregnancy symptom since that would have been around the time you should have ovulated.

The only way you will know is to wait for your period and to test if it doesn’t show up. Good luck!

I think you are not pregnant. The thing is you could be pregnant and symptomless at this point so who knows for sure. The breast tenderness two weeks ago means nothing, it was probably muscular not cycle or pregnancy related. Your bloatedness could be anything.

Buy a two pack pregnancy kit and pee on the stick tomorrow morning. Negative, still could be pregnant, need to wait a few days to retest if you don’t get your period. Positive, pregnant for sure.

It could be the symptoms of your period coming. It’s hard to say for sure seeing as different women have different symptoms. Hell every pregnancy is different so even one woman could have different symptoms for each pregnancy. My last pregnancy was so different from the previous one. I was convinced that I was getting my period because it felt like it until I missed it. You will have to wait and see, I know the wait is the worst part.

being sick could also be preventing you from getting your period, as well as that anxious feeling of wondering if your pregnant, I think that when you really are pregnant your symptoms don’t show as much besides the nausea but you also have that “pregnant” feeling, like when I got pregnant with my daughter I just new, and it was before my period was even due and we had been trying for a while before it finally did happen which is why I don’t think you’re really pregnant right now but update ! Congrats if you are (:

Sore breasts, cramping, slight sick feeling in the morning, but each woman is different and will have entirely different experiences with each pregnancy never mind similarities between women.
