Erm....I think I might be pregnant!

My boobs have been really sore for about a week, so bad I've bought a three pack of those ugly bras, I've always had tenderness before a period, but only for a day or so, I've also noticed a strange taste in my mouth, not enough to think much about it, until now, I've just read an early sign is a metallic taste, and that's the taste, couldn't put my finger on it before.

Slight twinges like mild period pains and wind.

I still don't want to believe it, I'm 39, this will be my first if I really am, but reading that about the metallic taste kinda made a light come on.

Early pregnancy symptoms REALLY feel like a period coming.....That's rather confusing.

I don't have anyone to tell, my husband is sleeping.

Blimey!!!

shock confused smile

Is it a good thing or a bad thing?

Will you POAS tomorrow?

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 01:58:17

POAS? I'm totally new to this. smile

It's a good thing, we've not used anything for about ten years and had accepted that we probably wouldn't have any kids, we were OK with that but I think I secretly buried the urge.

I'm still not sure but reading about that taste kinda threw me.

Assuming that it would be good news if you're pregnant - congrats!

bellabelly Sat 17-Nov-12 01:59:36

POAS = pee on a stick, ie, do a pregnancy test...

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:00:01

It does sound like I am then? (don't worry I know I need to test wink)

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:02:43

POAS - My very first acronym smile

I'm so tempted to ring my sister

must stay cool, might not be

bellabelly Sat 17-Nov-12 02:03:51

Well, no guarantees, but yes sounds v much like you might be! I remember that metallic taste very well! Are you feeling v tired at weird times too? It's hard to say because as you say early pregnancy symptoms are v similar to "period coming" symptoms but th eweird taste in mouth suggests that you are... Will you update this thread when you've tested?! smile

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:06:23

Yes, but it's very early if I am, two weeks and a day, my husband's been working away so I know exactly blush , that's why I'm trying to be cool about it, not even sure if it would show on a test yet!

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:07:15

Oh, and I'm always tired anyway grin

bellabelly Sat 17-Nov-12 02:08:54

It would show up on a first response or a clearblue digital... just saying! grin

bellabelly Sat 17-Nov-12 02:10:40

Pregnancy is dated from your last period so (depending on your exact cycle) you'd be 4-6 weeks probably. Test in the morning!!!

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:10:50

Y'know, we got married in August, we decided to wed after 18 years together, and now (possibly) this!

That's quite weird.

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:11:37

How on earth am I supposed to sleep? grin

BigWhoop Sat 17-Nov-12 02:11:47

I wore a sanitary towel for a week when I was pregnant because I thought I was coming on imminently - so yes my pregnancy symptoms were just the same. Also remember the funny taste... urgh.

The other thing is slight nausea when thinking about horrid stuff like dog poo?

Sounds like you could well be pregnant :-) When was AF? Can you POAS anytime soon?

bellabelly Sat 17-Nov-12 02:12:54

Haha, I have no idea! Am off to bed now but will be checking back tomorrow... smile

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:13:04

AF?

Alibabaandthe40nappies Sat 17-Nov-12 02:16:30

Aunt Flo - period.

How exciting! The taste is a big plus IME.

Now go to sleep and test ASAP in the morning! grin

isitmidnightalready Sat 17-Nov-12 02:19:39

I think you are - identical symptoms to my three pregnancies. Do you have a oversensitive sense of smell right now?

hope you get some sleep!

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 02:23:18

I honestly can't remember, I hardly take any notice of my periods, I really thought one of us was infertile so it's not an issue (if that makes sense)

3 weeks? 4 weeks?

I'll update you tomorrow, I'm going to try to sleep

Thanks so much for being here, I might have gone pop if I hadn't let it out

(Or woken my sister a mum of 3 under 7, I would NOT have been popular grin)

iloveholidays Sat 17-Nov-12 04:00:24

Good luck. Metallic taste was always an early sign for me, oh and the runs!!! Lol.

Hope you get exactly what you wish for. You want to test your first wee of the morning as its more concentrated so if you haven't got any tests then personally I'd wee in a pot and go and get a test. Best of luck x

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 04:27:09

I'm gonna send hubby out first thing for a test so it's here as soon as soon as I get out of bed.

Can't sleep, surprise, surprise.

magoosmom Sat 17-Nov-12 04:35:42

Good luck ! I think I'm pregnant too grin can't sleep at all tonight and have been waking randomly for the last few nights, happened me last time too, very thirsty too and mouth feels swollen on the inside or lips feel too big. Have Massive boobs and a sore back .Will be testing tomorrow too tho probably not til the evening as dont have any tests and don't want to buy one in my local pharmacy (live in a very small village where everyone knows me!) keep us updated grin

AndMiffyWentToSleep Sat 17-Nov-12 04:36:15

Oh that is exciting - really hope you are!

Have you managed to sleep at all?

lunar1 Sat 17-Nov-12 04:45:39
