I had period pains, tension, that congested feeling... the full gamut. I just couldn't believe I wasn't getting my period.
They don't tell you that in the books, do they? They always make the symptoms of pregnancy sound very distinct - but in fact the ones they cite are the ones that kick in at around 8 weeks (like nausea). At 4-6 weeks, it's a different kettle.
Yes, exactly. I also had implantation bleeding so thought my period was here but it wasnt
Am confused by your last question - did you mean atypical? I had typical my period is coming symptoms but a bit worse - I was very emotional both times, cramps - worse than period pains with my first and tired. I also had huge big blue veins on my boobs - the first time I just wondered what they were (we werent trying) the second time I went oh!
Yes, I did think my period was coming the week before and was really upset. I had an implantation bleed - and period pain type cramps. And sore boobs.
But as that week went on - I began to think something was different. The blood had gone (obviously) - the cramps weren't getting any stronger - and the boob pain was different to period boob pain - more shooting pain than general acheyness.
By the time I took the test I was pretty convinced I was pregnant.
