I posted a conversation a few weeks ago and got lots of helpful advise. Thank you for those of you who responded! I believe I may be pregnant. I got my IUD out in the beginning of August and a week later I had my period. When I was supposed to get my period in September, it didn't come. I am supposed to start my period by the end of this week, but we will see. I have estimated that if I am pregnant, I am around 6 or 7 weeks. I am going to the doctor next Monday for a pregnancy test but I wanted to post this to get your opinion. I have been feeling strange movement in my pelvic area for about a week. I know it is way too early to feel the baby but I was wondering if any of you have had this problem. It feels like when a baby kicks but it is very low. I have been having to go to the bathroom a ton, my breast are tender and are getting little bumps around the nipples, I have been having a lot of indigestion and nausea lately, I am tired all the time even when I take naps, I have been having backaches and headaches almost everyday, and I have been really wanting ice cream and chocolate more than usual. Just really any advise would be great!

I will be praying for you!

I have no children, yet, but working on that ;). Last September I DID have an Eptopic pregnancy that ended in Laparoscopic surgery almost 4-5 weeks after my positive PT. I had severe lower back pains, felt totally pregnant, all the signs were there, but the extra shots of pain told me there was something wrong. It even caused a bad yeast infection. If you are having severe lower back, front abdominal, or shoulder pains, call your OB for an immediate/ emergency appointment, or go to the ER. These are the 3 major signs of Eptopic pregnancy or miscarriage. I do wish you all the best though, and I pray you receive very good news at your appointment :).

Quoting Brandy:

Well, you have had children before and every woman's symptoms are different so only you can know what your pregnancies feel like so you could probably be pretty accurate. But I know if it was me, I wouldn't be able to wait for Monday, I would be running to the drug store for a test!


LOL, yeah I am having quite a hard time with the whole waiting thing. I have had this appointment scheduled for a few weeks and I feel like buying a test everytime I go into a store, but we don't really have the money for that right now.

Not to sound rude but there is no other deffenate way of knowing if you are pregnant then taking a test. And if you are possibly that far along even the cheap store brand tests would pop positive. That would be my suggestion...but you could also be feeling that way because your body is regulating hormones and just trying to find a balance.
