I am too anxious to know if I am pregnant....

I am supposed to start my period in three days, however, I took an early pregnancy test two days ago-negative!

However, two weeks ago I have been experiencing the following-which all happened in my first pregnancy:

-soreness in breasts-OUCH!
-bloating
-back aching
-lots of gas (how embarrasing!)
-cravings for certain food - tomatoes! (my first pregnancy never had a craving for anything in particular! Just food!)

Could I be pregnant and just in the early stage?

Good luck to you!

It often seems so hard to tell pre-AF symptoms from some early pregnancy symptoms. I was in the same boat last month. We're not TTC, so I was relieved to get AF, but I researched all the strange symptoms I was having, and many of them had as much chance of being early preg signs as AF signs.

It can be very confusing, unfortunately.

My best to you!

Well, you guys were right, I am not pregnant, however I think I had a miscarraige, because the day before I was supposed to start my period, I had a faint line on my pregnancy test, so I thought maybe I was in early stage of pregnancy, then not until 5 days after that I started my period, very heavily, lots of cramping, lots of blood clots and very heavy period. Which is not normal of me. Took the pregnancy test again, turns out negative. I don't know if it was a miscarriage or not. But I so despise my period that I was in a bad mood all week and depressed too. I am trying not to be, I know I have a beautiful daughter now, but dag gone it, why is it taking longer with this one? We have been trying for 5 months. I know it really isn't long compared to others, but for the first one it only took the first try!

Well, I don't know if I O'd or not. Seems like I might have but I did those OPKs and because I don't have a set cycle (23-28 days) I started testing on cd 9 and never got a LH surge. SO either I O'd before the test, didn't O at all or got PG because we were doing some serious Baby Dancing prior to day 9. I guess no matter what I get to play the waiting game with you all again. LOL
