Hey, I don't usually post on here - I've been lurking for a few weeks or so but only made an account today. Google is giving me too many mixed messages and I'd just like to get a few opinions from people with real life experiences of pregnancy rather than just what it says on google.

I haven't been trying to get pregnant by any means, I'm 17 and don't have a permanent place to stay since my mum kicked me out two months ago. I'm staying with my partner who is 19. About two weeks ago (give or take) I started experiencing a lot of the common symptoms of pregnancy such as tender, swollen breasts, nausea (without vomiting) so bad it was worse than any nausea I've experienced before, I've been having craaaaazyyy mood swings, one minute I'm happier than ever the next I'm angry at my partner for no reason or feeling very emotional and weepy for no reason, my appetite has gone up massively and certain smells are knocking me sick. There have been some other things too but you get the jist!
I thought for sure it was implantation bleeding when I started bleeding - it started off a pinkish colour and just felt VERY different to my usual period in that I usually get extremely heavy flow around an hour after I start bleeding and it stays pretty heavy for at least two days but I didn't bleed nearly as heavily as I usually do at all. There have been times when I was 100% sure it was my period and I've just been being paranoid because the bleeding turned bright red and got heavier (however never as heavy as my usual period). I did need to use pads and I got some cramps but again not nearly as bad as usual as I usually go pale, can't walk much, etc from pain.
If anything I'm scared I'm not pregnant because if I'm not then what's wrong with me?!??
What do you think? Could I be pregnant or am I just being paranoid? The confusion and waiting to know is killing me ahh!!

Best thing to do is take a test. If you're not pregnant then your hormones could just be a bit out of whack, or, because you've been thinking you could be pregnant your body could be 'playing along' so to speak.

I don't mean to be rude but logically how can anyone think that googling and typing out a huge long paragraph on an Internet forum will give them a better answer than taking a pregnancy test?

You need to take a pregnancy test OP, is there any reason you haven't?

I've tested twice, both negative, but I'm not even due on yet so I'm thinking it may be too early. Waiting a bit longer to test again. Just thought I may be able to get a bit of information or opinions from real life people on here. My bad I guess?

If both negative then I very much doubt you are pregnant, probably just a weird period.

If you are on the pill or have recently come off it it can send your cycles screwy.

Oh wait just read you're not due on yet. In that case wait a few more days, no point in getting frazzled over it yet.

The thing is, nobody can say if you're pregnant or not going on what you say on a message board. Only a test will provide an answer and as you've said yourself, it's too early to test if you haven't even missed a period 😑

Hi folks. We're going to move this thread over to conception.

When was your last actual period? How long are your cycles usually?
