Hi Everyone! I"m new here so sorry if I do something wrong, or if I take a while to respond to people.
I figured since this is a site about pregnancy, maybe someone would be able to help answer my questions. I'm 19 so I never really kept track of my periods. (I will after this!) I'm assuming since most people are on a 28 day cycle that mine is around that also. It's never been too long between them so I think that's a fair guess.
I started my last period on the first on this month (January). My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex about 4 times this month and 2 were around the time I believe I was ovulating. The only kind of protection we used was pulling out. (Yes, I know that this is a REALLY bad method of birth controll, in fact, it probably shouldn't even be called birth control.)
Anyways, for about the past 10 days my nipples have been extremely sore. It hurts for anything to touch them or brush against them. I know that some people say this is a sign of PMS but I've never experienced it before. And it's just my nipples, not my breasts. I also have recently noticed a dark line (a vein maybe?) around half of one of my nipples. (I'm not sure if that's relevant to this or not, but I've only noticed it now.) A few days ago I kept getting mild cramps in my abdomen. They'd only last for a little bit, but it was very out of the ordinary. I've been tired throughout the days, not enough to really be forced to take a nap or anything, but when I lay down at night I have a hard time falling asleep. It's odd. It might just be stress from worrying over this.... I've also noticed that I've been eating ALOT lately. And that's not like me. I've been eating breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and desert and still will be hungry. I usually only eat a small lunch and dinner. (Stress too??)
I've taken a test and it was negative. However, I feel it would possibly be too early for it to be picked up. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this and if it was because they were pregnant. I wasn't trying to concieve but if I'm pregnant I'll be ok with it. I mean, it was my deciscion to have unprotected sex.... I don't know. Something about me just feels different. When I took the test and it came up negative all I was thinking was "That's odd, I sure feel pregnant. It must be wrong."
Thanks again everyone for taking time to read this and replying. I appreciate it more than you'd know! These next few days are dragging on. I don't seem to be able to do anything but surf the web looking for answers.
