Not Wanting To Worry In Silence, And Looking For Advice :)
I was reading through this forum, while trying to gain knowledge on early pregnancy symptoms and what not, and really wanted to post.
I'm only 19, and the potential father to be doesn't like talking about it, and keeps saying we're fine, yet what I've been experiencing feels different than my normal menstrual symptoms. I don't feel as though I should tell my friends/family about what's going on because I don't want to worry them if it ends up being nothing.
Our event happened on July 4th, and about a week later I experienced some bleeding, and no cramps...which is COMPLETELY odd and abnormal. My periods are normal for the most part, but I don't quite remember when my last period was, which makes me think that the bleeding was my period...but just completely different than all the rest. I've been experiencing nausea, exhaustion, lower back aches, headaches, and I been wanting cucumbers. (Possible period craving, but still...it's odd). My nipples have been starting to hurt...which is odd as well.
It's confusing, and scary for sure! I don't know when I should test, or what to do!
All that can be period signs as well. Period and pregnancy signs are pretty much the same, with a few extra for pregnancy but that don't happen until farther along. You could take a test now, if it's negative wait a week or two and re-test.
Momma to 2 and expecting
If it was period, I think you are probably fine. You're normal period symptoms could change anytime. I would wait another week and see what happens.
