Pregnancy signs vs period signs

Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy signs vs period signs

pregnancy

My breasts were sore a few days after conception. Everything else followed after the pregnancy test.
And 5 days before AF due I had 1 day of moderate watery bright discharge, followed by a light spotty day; then none..maybe if I wiped. A 3 day period? -could this be "implantation"?... Hmmm, well, I a still having my headaches and nausea a good 2 weeks after initial signs. Keep me posted! Babydust!
But of course, now I am freaked out I might have an etopic pregnancy. When the pain started I was only 3weeks and 4 days pregnant...My period isn't even due until Tuesday. Also, since the reversal everything about my cycle is exagerated...major O pains I never had before, horrible periods/pms.My friend is 9 weeks pregnantsaid not to worry if I had some minor pain, it was just the corpeus luteum making hormones for the baby until it can on its own.
there is a great differnce betweent spotting/bleeding and a full blown period! ones a period with the cramps. lenght. flow....everything that happens when you have period and when you spot/bleed. (its mostly spotting if even that) its in no way similar to a period. its a few drops of blood here and there. not filling a pad or tampon. etc theres a differnce and you would know yes if your so worried your pregnant than simply take a test.
I have a question about BH vs cramping and when to call the ob. I'm trying to make it one whole month without having to go in between appointments. I know it's silly, but seriously I feel like such a nerd calling and going in all the time. So here is the deal. Friday I had BH all day then they let up Saturday morning. Since then I've been really crampy. Like period crampy off and on, but not having the BH. Question is should I call or not?
Having a period means you are shedding the lining of your uterus. So I would say, it's not normal nor possible. Some bleeding can be considered within normal limits and so can some types of cramps. If you feel like this is a REAL period, and the bleeding and cramping are plentiful, I would suggest contacting your OB for a check. How far along are you?
So ud think im a first time mommy with this question but with both of my other 2 kids i Never experienced BH and had no warning signs of labor i literally woke up n the middle of the night with real painful contractions that were 3-5 min apart and both times i was n labor. This pregnancy has been so different bcus ive had BH since about 20 wks. Im 39 wks my dr hasn't checked my cervix so i have no idea if im dilated.
I do not nore have I ever had regular periods but it is usually in the first or second week of the month. it is now the end of the second week and i have a lot of the signs of PMS and early pregnancy. My nipples are REALLY tender (more than usual) by breasts seem to have grown or feel fuller (never happened before) i have cramps off and on and i am tired all the time. but on the other hand i usually get crazy emotional but i havent yet and no cravings or feeling sick.
The problem is that I have been having many of the beginning pregnancy signs. What is going on? Do I need to get an Ultrasound or should I take the pills that the doctor is going to give me?
So you are 3 weeks meaning you are only overdue for your period by 1 week? Is that right? When was your last period? Or are you 3 weeks from when your period was due?
Was anyone crampy before they started full on contractions? They are very low cramps and feel like my period is about to start. They only thing I have to go on is the m/c I had last year. I did cramp with that very very badly which turned into contractions. I don't know if this is different though...?
The worst part is the anticipation in the waiting period. I have felt so good since the ablation--heartbeat wise-- that I would not hesitate to do it again. Good Luck with your decision!
Even the people who deny their sex drive need it. Yes, women need sex too. Sometimes the outcome of sex is pregnancy.
January 13th 2000 I started my period, did a home pregnancy test Feb. 9th and found out i was pregnant. The signs i had in those 2 weeks before the test: 1. a few seconds of sharp stabbing pain in the right lower side below where the ovary might be, in the pelic wall about 4 days after ovulation. 2. feeling pucky especially when hot 3. flu like symptoms one day 4. pressure, twinges and digging-in pain off and on that continued daily at the site of implantation.
This morning there was a LOT of bright red blood. I don't know the signs of a miscarriage vs pregnancy. I might be worried for no reason, but am really looking for answers. Anyone?? please.
Thank you for your reply but I still want to know whats the difference between the same quality eggs from someone younger vs older? Is there something that the naked eye can't see? Please help me understand.... Also what do you know about DHEA and IVF? I took it on my first IVF. Is there any benefit in using it when doing IVF with donor eggs? Thank you for your patience.
I know this is not the case for everyone, but the difference between my miscarriages and this pregnancy is the symptoms. I really felt pregnant this time vs. the other two times when I really didn't have any symptoms at all. Is your wife having any pregnancy symptoms?? If she was supposed to get her period on the 9th, she would be about 5 weeks or so. Most of the time they would be able to see something on an ultrasound by now.
I have taken four HPTs and they all came out negative, but still no bleeding. I have looked up the signs of early pregnancy, and I do exhibit some of the signs e.g. tender breasts, freg. urination, and fatigue. My sister has recently moved in with us and I have heard that women can affect one anothers cycles, but could this have happened so soon (in only one cycles time) and so dramatically? I have NEVER missed a period and the latest it has ever been is three days.
Pregnancy Category C. No evidence of teratogenicity was found in mice, rats, or rabbits when lamotrigine was orally administered to pregnant animals during the period of organogenesis at doses up to 1.2, 0.5, and 1.1 times, respectively, on a mg/m2 basis, the highest usual human maintenance dose (i.e., 500 mg/day). However, maternal toxicity and secondary fetal toxicity producing reduced fetal weight and/or delayed ossification were seen in mice and rats, but not in rabbits at these doses.
I had an emergency hysterectomy after the birth of my son in Nov 04(uterine atony, DIC.).the OBGYN warned me i may have a little spotting monthly but it wasn't likely. Imagine my shock when about six weeks after I started bleeding quite heavily. After seeing my doctor he sent me to see the OBGYN who delivered my son and preformed the Hyst. I was told that they left my cervix and a small part of my uterus ( which she referred to as a cervical stump).
But here I am scouring the websites on PMT virsus pregnancy signs (they're the same!) How annoying. I think this will get easier... Ive told myself to give it 6mths, if we still haven't concieved I know Ill be very low. But I have a wonderful hubby and life so chin up ladies. I also keep dreaming of babies and breast feeding, so it's definately in our sub-concious............. fingers crossed for all.
both negative, still no period though im due to ge my period today and no signs of menstarting, my boobs hurt and i pee alot.....whats up?
Hi all, I read somewhere in my travels that if you have a very high viral load, it might suggest you have had HCV for a longer period of time. Has anyone else heard of this and is there any validity to that statement? Is there anything that suggest approximatly how long you have had this disease? Amount of liver damage maybe confirmed by a biopsy? There are a few major time frames I can think of where I may have gotten this (still waiting to see if it is actually still active btw).
See last month i had spotting from sept 12-18 then got my period for only 3 days then it was back to spotting. I took 2 pregnancy tests and both were negative i was so discouraged i thought it was implantation bleeding but after that my period seems shorter and weird. Anyways i have to go but that gives u an idea of what i went through with praying and hoping that i was pregnant.
Last time was a year ago so I can't remember what to look for apart from the period signs. What day does the cramping start if it's positive? Talk about a rollercoaster experience huh??!!
Hi Ladies, I was having early pregnancy problems and my latest ultrasound showed the heart stopped beating at around 7 weeks (it was still beating in the ultrasound one week earlier). I am now left with the option of taking misoprostol tablets to induce a miscarriage or having a D&C. My doctor prescribed 800 mcg of misoprostol to take but I am still debating what to do. Does anyone have any advice on this?
I am 30 weeks pregnant and have been using oxys and percocet throughout my pregnancy. I don't always use every day and when I do it is just a couple here and there. I don't really experience withdrawals and i feel awful that I have not been strong enough to quit. I have now stopped using completely and I was just wondering if anyone knows if this will have any effect on my baby.
I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
I have never measured, so I'm not exactly sure how long my cycle really is. I have slight cramps as if I'm going to have my period, but its a little bit too soon for when I would normally see mine. I had my last period Oct. 23rd. I was getting slight pink discharge for about a day, and it was nothing like period spotting at all. That same day it started to hurt when I peed, so I had no idea if it were a UTI vs. being pg. I took a uti test and it said POSSIBLE, uti. What a pain in my butt..
My period was due Jan 23 I was actually at the OBGYN (regular one year checkup) and I started bleeding. So I thought I had my period but all the signs of pregnancy were still there. The next day nothing, so I took a test and it was negative, third day spotting brownish/pink, fourth day nothing, and fifth day one brown spot. So I took another test this morning and negative. Breasts sore and belly bloated. So I am really confused.
