Hi there,

I have a girl who is 3 next wednesday and earlier this month we decided that the time now just about right to give our little girl a brother or sister to play with.

So for the last ten days or so I have been wondering if I am or not and because this is my second I know what the signs are. I have been feeling slightly nauseous. I have been getting cramps which I don't usually ever get so I'm thinking that we may be already on our way but don't want to get too excited. If I get the soreness in the nipples I will know for sure cause it isn't something you can ignore. I won't waste money on a pregnancy test this time I will just go to my doctors in a few weeks and get the test to confirm and hopefully I can get the go ahead to go to the antenatal clinic. Do you realise that I will look very silly if i'm not preg now oh well only another 10 days before I will probably know or not!

look forward to speaking to you all

Hi Ali,

I just found out the other day that I am pregnant, and the only things i'm feeling is nausea and cramping, so i'd say it's a good possibility that you could well be pregnant already. I guess it is a waiting game though for now for you, but i'll be keeping my fx'd and wish you the absolute best of luck

thanks all,

My daughter has given me the cold now so I can't tell if I'm still nauseous but I have been getting a tingly feeling in my nipples. I'm not taking any decongestant just incase. just taking it easy and with my daughters birthday next week that should help me to stop thinking I'm I or aren't I.

take care 4 now

I've been trying to get pregnant for 3 years now. I hate the waiting game, maybe cos it has not come positive as yet. I am very hopeful this month though. My periods are due in 4 days. Should be looking out for any signs or should just wait. Remember, I hate waiting.

I am 32 years old and have a daughter turning 15 next month and i think i conceived my second exactly one week ago. I will be so happy if I did. Now I am very anxious and would like to know if it is indeed to early to take a at home pregnancy test. Can some one please respond back to me and let me know if I should wait on more week.

I have been on depo provera for a few months now... I did have unprotected sex before I took the shot and I think I might be pregnant! I didn't have any of the usual early symptoms, but I have been having a lot of fatigue and I have just recently been experiencing a mucsle spasm/wave like movement in my stomach every day... Is it possible that I could be pregnant and didn't know it till about 5-6 months in?

i am late on my period about 5 weeks and 2 days. i been feeling sick alot and moody. the people that is around me alot tells me that i have change alot in the way i act and feel. i don't feel lkie i anm going to have a late period at all or going to go on it. i have took some pergnacy testes (home ones) and they come out - i don't know why. i should be pragnant but everything test says i'm not. i reserch sytoms and the reasons why it would be missed or late none apply to me.

coould i be pregnant and not know it and the test still say - or chould something be wroug with me.

I was on my period 2week's ago today I had a work interview and I fell over wearing high heels after this happend I started bleeding, but I know that when people bleed when they're pregnant at the beginning. Its called implantation bleeding when the egg implants in the uterus? I also have a 17month old daughter so I know the symptoms

Hi Ladies

I found out earlier this week that I am pregnant (5 weeks) and me and my husband are over the moon. This is over first baby. Louise I experienced the implantation bleeding 2 weeks ago (also known as spotting). I have never experienced this before and I knew this could be the first sign, this was followed by tender breast a week or so later. I did a pregnancy test on Tues and it confirmed I am pregnant. For the last 4-5 days I have had extremely sore breast and nipples, especially in the morning. They feel so heavy and quite painful to be honest. Has anyone else experienced this? I also felt a loss of appetite last night and was feeling very nauseous this morning and extremely tired. I guess this is just the beginning of my body reacting to the changes.
