  • thats how I felt in the early weeks. Before I did the test I felt pregnant but my body kept feeling like i was going to come on my period any second with my abdomen feeling very heavy and light cramping. I had a spot of blood in the tissue and was even more convinced that I was imagining a pregnancy, but when that never came, I tested and was positive.

    It sucks that both pregnancy and menstruation have the same symptoms. *Sings* Sometimes its hard to be a woman....


  • hahaha... shwu.... thats a relief... ;-) Ja, we def's get the bad end of the stick with all our bodies..haha :-)

  • I "pretty" much totally agree with the 1st comment made by "gigglysheep" & say pregnancy & periods have all the same symptoms ( apart from the actual bleeding) so as long as you don't start "heavily bleeding" or something similar it's definitely normal

    Oh & congrats by the way


  • Thanks so much :-) really feel this is my first time... so scared about at least ill have a 13 year old babysitter ;-) Thanks again for reply.
