Could I be pregnant?!?!

  • Okay, I'm new on here but I would love some help!

    My last period started January 3 and ended January 8. My cycles are usually regular, give or take a day or two. My boyfriend and I had sex on the 16th, when I think I ovulated. Since then, I've been feeling a little down. I thought I was getting a cold since my bf has one, but it hasn't got any worse. I had a slight sore throat a day or two after intercourse, but it went away. I've been so tired, I can barely stay awake during the day and I sleep for hours if I take a nap. I've been cramping a lot & bad back aches. I get nauseous several times during the day. Headaches and dizziness. I had one dizzy spell where I almost lost consciousness. I've also been peeing a lot more and felt more gassy. I feel very bloated at times. i start getting teary eyed at the most un-sad things. My boobs have been mildly sore, my nipples also. I had a slight fever today while I was taking another nap. I've also been eating more. Smells have been making me nauseous also. I made some ramen noodles earlier & I gagged the whole time, I couldn't even finish eating them. I know it's probably too early for several of these symptoms for me to be pregnant, but I've had pregnancy scares in the past and this time just feels different. Am I crazy? Or could I be pregnant?

  • Hmmm... to know if you are pregnant, you should do a home pregnancy test. Home test should work just fine at this point if you haven't had your period yet. If you aren't planning a pregnancy, it might be wise to start using some kind of birth control so you don't have "scares". Most of the symptoms you described can also be flu-like.

    Best of luck whichever way you want this to go.
