well, I have a 2 1/2 year old and I think I could possibly be pregnant again and I would be more than happy :) Just wondering how early you can get symptoms. with her i didn't know till I was a week late but I think back and I had symptoms at just 3 weeks. I think I could be but I am not sure. My nipples are sore and I have been soooo tired all the time. I have been hungry alot more this week. I also have alot more vaginal discharge and really mild cramps and headaches.I am not supposed to start till next week but I know it sounds crazy but I think I am having symptoms or is it all in my head? opinions would be greatly appreciated. thanks :)

I have a conundrum I am hoping to get some insight on. I think I missed my period but I do not entirely remember when my last one ended I have had some very bad to moderate cramping, very difficult time staying asleep, a lot of lower back pain and today I have been really emotional and moody all at once however I have not had any vaginal discharge at all. I fear I may be pregnant I even am up 5 pounds from a month ago. Is it possible it is still pms and my period is just out of whack or do you think it is more plausible I am preganant. Please give me some insight.

I'm a little different than most... I can tell you exactly when I got pregnant b/c we had to do in-vitro fertilization. I can tell you I was implanted on a Wednesday and knew Thursday night that I was pregnant. I got up 3 times in the middle of the night to pee and continued doing that for 2 weeks (I never have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night). I never had nausea, but was exhausted 3 days later and stayed that way for the first trimester. The fertility clinic did my pregnancy test 10 days after implantation, and I knew it was positive. So, yes, some people can tell within a day or two.

Well, thanks everyone. I am going to wait and take a test this weekend I think because I still think I am pregnant but I will not be late until after Sunday. I am 90 % sure so I will take a test and keep you posted. Thanks. . .

A lot of pregnancy symptoms can be similiar or the same as pre-menstruation, such as increased hunger, tiredness, and frequent urination, so it is hard to say. Although, it is very well possible. Just wait until you are late for your period and then take a pregnancy test and see.

sometime nipples can leak a little too, skipped period, frequent urination is what i had, and evening sickness!!

With one of my pregnancies, I had the symptoms before my period was due, and I was still getting negative tests (keep in mind this was 7 years ago, so tests are probably much better now than they were). I tested positive about a week later. So yeah, it is entirely possible you are experiencing symptoms at 3 weeks.
