I've changed my name because I feel a bit embarassed that I don't really know this!

I have a strange feling that I might be pregnant. See what you think.

I have been feeling sick in the mornings for about 2 weeks now and not both but one of my boobs had started to hurt (quite strange) but but but my AF arrived.
Last month my AF came a bit earlier than normal which I though was a bit strange but forgot about it until I had the sicky feelings.

I really thought I might have been pg up until AF came but you hear stories of women who've had af's right throughout their pregnancy.

What do you think?

Are you me!!!

I'm having the same dilema, but I have to Mirena fitted!! I feel a bit daft too.... but as everyone says.... there is only one way to know for sure...

WideWebWitch Thu 28-Jul-05 14:09:51

yep, DO A TEST! We can't possibly know! Do a test! I hope it's the answer you want. (the test, not this post!)

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:12:25

It's so so strange.

I can't get out till tomorrow because of this foul weather.

Are you having the same prob Toothache?

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:14:54

Yes. I have been feeling very tired, have crampy feelings, a horrible metallic taste in my mouth (so horrible I've been cleaning my teeth 4 or 5 times a day!!) AND I had one very sore boob last week!!! BUT my mirena coil is still in place. Can't quite believe I'm going to have to do a test. My dd is only 11mths old and I start a new great job in 2 wks.

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:18:22

The one boob is normal then?!

My only other thought is that I might have been and I may have miscarried but nothing seems different.

Are you testing now Toothache?

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:19:29

I'm at work, but I'm going to buy a test in Boots at the train station on the way home. I'll probably do the test in the grotty train toilet..... then throw myself off the train if 2 lines appear.

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:24:46


No seriously don't do that !!!

Will get test tomorrow I think if the sickness doesn't pass. I can't see it being positive though with AF being here.

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:26:33

MBMBN - When will you test?

I have absolutely NO idea when my last period was!! I still get periods with the coil, but my cycle seems longer. I know I've had one in July.... I just can't think when! And DH and I haven't been near each other in at least a fortnight...... so if I am pregnant I will be about 6 or 7 wks AND will have had a period too.

BarefootMama Thu 28-Jul-05 14:27:35

my friend has just found out she is pg with the coil!

chloe55 Thu 28-Jul-05 14:28:23

Before I fell pregnant this time I had 2 early miscarriages (or so we think) Is your period heavier than normal? Apparantly it is very common to have early miscarriages without even knowing. I did a test with both but they showed up negative but I felt sick, had sore boobs and was exhausted - spoke to the doc and she said it sounded likely I had early miscarriages and a negative result isn't always accurate, particularly if there is a problem. On the other hand I have heard of women who go through pregnancy still having bleeds. I would go to your doc if symptoms continue.

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:28:35

BFM - OH NOOOOOO! Was it the Mirena Coil or the non-hormone one????? Is she okay? Is the baby okay???

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:29:07

I'll test tomorrow.

I'll be very very very shocked if I am even though some signs are there. Dh will probably collaspe and my other LO will have no idea

Let us know what happens!

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:32:15

I had an early miscarriage the month before I conceived my other LO. The bleeding wasn't heavier but the pain I had was excruiating. So bad that I passed out a few times.

Tbh I have noticed a few clots when I've been to the loo but I don't know if that's just because they're appearing at the time I need to wee or if there is an actual problem IYKWIM.

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:32:43

How old is your LO?
My ds is 4 and dd 11mths. Don't have room for another one, they share a bedroom as it is.

Good luck tomorrow!!!

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:35:17

LO is nearly 2.

We have no room for another. We said that we would extend the house ready for no.2 when we'd paid our loan off and dh was only saying last night how bad things are getting money wise

However if I am, I'll be very happy.

gingerbear Thu 28-Jul-05 14:36:56

Shit Toothy, not this as well as your dad!!! What did you do to deserve all this?

pigleychez Thu 28-Jul-05 14:38:16

Hi,Im in a similar situtation.
About 2 weeks ago i started having symptoms of sore boobs, headaches, tiredness and grumbly belly.This was about a week before my AF, so i was wondering if these were pregnancy symptoms. However AF arrived one day late but only lasted for 2 days instead of my usual 4/5 days. I am now wondering if this could of been implantation bleeding or something as i am still(over a week later) feeling extremerly tired, having headaches/light headedness, backache and strange grumbly belly thats worse in the morning.
What do you think?

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:40:25

Pigleychez - I think you need to be testing too. C'mon we'll all announce the results tomorrow.... odds are ONE of us is pg. [nervous]

Gingerbear - I don't know, but I must've done something awful in a previous life.

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:40:41

Like you said pigleychez it could be an implantation bleed but like the rest of us there is only one true way to find out!

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:42:17

Just read your other thread Toothache and I really understand what your going through. Dh's dad is very much like your dad.

I think his exact words to him the other week was "You jumped up little s*!" Nice.

Distel Thu 28-Jul-05 14:42:23

Toothache- you can't wait untill tomorrow to announce weather you are or not - the suspence will kill me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:43:44

MBMBN - I can't undertstand how anyone can be so cruel to their child.

Distel - I'm the one usually saying that to people!!!! Well okay, might pop online tonight to either PANIC or GET DRUNK!!!

maybemaybenot Thu 28-Jul-05 14:47:42

You must tell us Toothache!!!!

I'd go now but the weather is shocking

Toothache Thu 28-Jul-05 14:48:58

Och a bit of rain never hurt anyone MBMBN!!!!

...but then again, in your condition you should be careful not to slip.
