hi there girls, I'm new to this site so sorry if im not very helpful. I have two boys already 2.5 yrs and 14months and my husband and have been trying for the last 4 months. I think also we you decide that you want to start trying every month just seems to go so slow and you just wanna know that you preggie. Every month it seemed as though i might have had some of the early symptons, but this month was different! So here's my only clues i can give you that prehaps this month is your lucky month. About 5/6 dpo i started getting mild cramping and really bad bloating, which is quiet normal for me a few days before AF, but not half way through cylce. And then one morning 4 days until Af was due my nibbels had this weird tingling sensation like pins and needles..bloating continued and mild cramping and dizzness now follows. I am now 5 weeks preggie with want we hope is a healthy precious little girl...(fingers crossed) but either way hopefully a healthy little bub. I hope this info helps coz i know how frustrating it can get. oh the day i was expecting AF, I was quiet wet down below to the point that I thought oh Af has come, but when i looked it was cm, but more wet then discharge..really hope this helps girls and i wish everyone the very best of luck all of you deserve this experience, so best wishes xx

smorehead if you go to the doctor they can do blood test and it will either come back that you are or your not i would go see a doctor for sure. Thats also to anyone that has gotten negitive readings on pregnancy test. I took a test when i was pregnant with my son and they read negitive but my blood test was positive and i really was pregnant

i probably joined this forum out of pure paranoia, but usually when my period is late after a weekend with the boyfriend, it is only a further day late...this time its running on 2...total paranoia i know, but i'd rather know the facts about the average lateness after sex when you are due your period...anyone know?
