I think I might be pregnant

This is probably going to sound really silly but I have a feeling I might be pregnant (ok, that bit isn't sill but the rest might be!).

My last AF finished on 29/07 so DH and I had to have done stuff about a week after that. My next AF is due in around 10 days time, but I have woken up twice this week just "feeling" pg, my boobs are sore and feel quite a bit bigger (I would notice this as they aren't that big anyway), I feel quite a bit more tired than usual and I am having quite nasty mood swings.

I usually experience these PMT-ish symptoms around 3-5 days before my AF, but it's not due for at least 10. I tend to get "shouty" in these 3-5 days and although I'm having mood swings, I'm not shouty lol.

Am I being silly? I'm not imagining these "symptoms". I soooo want to do a test but it is way to early, I know. What do you think though? Do I sound mad or does it sound possible, given that my dates are what they are?

The crucial question is, have you been having sex?

Lazylou Sun 19-Aug-07 15:41:51

lol, yes, but only once this month about a week after AF. I'm really nervy about doing it so soon after AF so always have to wait a week. (Weird, I know lol)

are you using a contraceptive?

if not, it's possible you are pregnant.

About a week after finish of AF is most peoples most fertile time ....

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 19-Aug-07 16:55:29

possible you are, maybe test end of the week? as not to far away from AF

Lazylou Sun 19-Aug-07 16:56:57

No, no contraception. It's just a bit hard to believe because we haven't used anything since we first got together (well for about 3 months) and apart from DD, I fell pregnant again 8 months after she was born but mc at 7 weeks. I feel like I did when I found out about DD but by then I was 6 weeks pg. Feels totally different to the second time though.

Or is it possible to have AF symptoms 10 days before?

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 19-Aug-07 16:59:11

Could be possible esp if your HCG levels are really high

Lazylou Sun 19-Aug-07 17:01:01

Oh god, I want to do a test NOW but its still to early! Sorry, what I meant was it is possible to have really obvious AF symptoms 10 days before AF is due? It normally only happens 3-5 days before with me.

belgo Sun 19-Aug-07 17:01:43

it's possible especially of your cycle is slightly unpredictable.

TheMuppetMuggle Sun 19-Aug-07 17:02:22

I do sometimes i know when i'm around due coz my back hurts normally about a week before.

maybe wait till end of week and test then??

belgo Sun 19-Aug-07 17:04:11

yes don't test now, you won't get an accurate result and it will only be a waste of money. It's hard waiting I know.

Lazylou Sun 19-Aug-07 17:04:30

That's what I'm going to do I think TMM. That's if I can keep myself from testing any time sooner! Thanks, just wanted to make sure I wasn't going mad.

Lazylou Sun 19-Aug-07 17:04:48

Thanks Belgo
