I've had a chest infection/heavy cold for about 2 weeks and am over a week late. I'm never normally late - not even a day but I don't have any other pregnancy related symptoms.

DP and I have decided to start trying next year so the timing wouldn't be great as we could be in a better position financially.

AIBU to think I need to POAS or is it possible that this god awful cold has just messed up my cycle!?

Well it could have, I guess, although for me nothing altered my periods-illness, medication, stress...

Have you had unprotected sex??

Or using contraception that might have failed?

POAS!!!!!!

Poas!

POAS!

It is possible that you being ill has messed your cycle up, but you know you have to POAS anyway to put your mind at ease.

Diddl - I am on the pill but do forget to take it sometimes, although this has always been the case and I've never had an accident!

As you can probably tell from my name, I can't wait to have a baby but now I feel a bit nervous!!

You'll be fine, just go and get a test. Boots do cheap ones!

Test. I'm never that late for illness but it is possible I suppose.

If you've had unprotected sex then it is always a possibility.

So go POAS!

Yes, I'm just delaying the inevitable, I shall go and get a test this afternoon.

Really nervous as I'd like to be in a better financial position but at the same time a little bit excited as all I want is to be a mum!

I fell pregnant whilst on the pill... POAS

I had a horrible cold/flu for 6 weeks before it dawned on me that I didn't and it was all pregnancy symptoms.

iwantalittleone Tue 20-Nov-12 10:36:52

FlaminNora - wow really? Were they the only symptoms you had?

Thanks for all the replies, I think I needed some encouragement!

FlaminNoraImPregnantPanda Tue 20-Nov-12 10:42:13

For the first 6/7 weeks I just had cold/flu like symptoms. Blocked nose, coughing, fever, headaches. Around 7/8 weeks I got nausea but no sickness, which was worse depending on how over heated I was. It was only when my breasts starting really hurting around 10 weeks that I started to suspect pregnancy. Now I'm 16 weeks and I still have a cough and am bunged up. I didn't know before hand that so much extra mucus was even a pregnancy symptom.

FlaminNoraImPregnantPanda Tue 20-Nov-12 10:43:19

I did suspect when the nausea kicked in but dismissed as not possible (too old).

iwantalittleone Tue 20-Nov-12 10:45:48

No I wouldn't suspect pregnancy at all other than the fact my period is late!

Congratulations by the way!

This time last year I was coming out the end of a stinking god awful cold, A week later I woke up with sore gibloodygantic tits, and now there is a baby sleeping upstairs. I had no other symptoms.... So POAS an come back and tell us. Good luck OP.

Sounds like you could be pregnant! I had no symptoms till around 7 weeks with my pregnancy, I was expecting to be throwing up and weeping but nope I felt normal.

I have friends who had illness as their 1st pregnancy symptom, I think your immune system lowers so your body cna except the embryo.

POAS!! smile

AIBU to want to be pregnant again? What with this and googling Fearne Cotton.

kittyandthegoldenfontanelles Tue 20-Nov-12 12:59:31

I had flu symptoms from 6-12 weeks. They were my ONLY symptoms. Apart from rampant horniness.....

I always get a cold when I get pregnant from week 4/5. I've had 6 pregnancies (2 successful) and got a cold/flu every single time without fail.
