Hi there, i wonder if you all can help me.

I'm not a 100% sure if i am pregnant or not. Ive had a lot of symptoms and have been reading a lot of websites and other stories that seem to be quite similar to mine.

Basically if i hadnt of gone to get my hair coloured i don't think i would really have thought twice. My hairdresser made a passing comment that one of the reasons my hair may not be taking to the bleach is due to pregnancy. Ever since then i have noticed symptoms. Such as cramping, not like normal period cramps nor ovulation cramps just a dull mild cramp through out the whole day. I'd say this has gone on for over a month now. Ive been getting more and more out of breath, going up the stairs really strains my breathing. The smell and thought of drinking coffee makes me feel sick and my breast are tender to touch but not agonizing just a slight bruising feeling when i touch the sides of them. My veins in my breast have become really visible and im sure my nipple colour has changed, they too are really sensitive to touch an this has never been an issue with me before. Theres been quite a few other symptoms too.

I had my period but it was more of a brown discharge? Am i over thinking things?

and pregnancy tests were negative?

It could be too early to test. Try using a clear blue digital or first response as they pick up earlier.

My hair hasn't taken well to colour since being pregnant but there can be other reasons why its not taking.

Hope u get the answer u want x

Symptoms could be becomes resistant to dye after a while so not a great judge.

The only way you are going to know is to do a test

Well you need to test. We cant really tell you either way seeing as the hormones from coming off implant can replicate the same as pregnancy, so you really need to test.
