Pregnant after period? puppetofoz 16 kids; Canada 239 posts

Has anyone found out they were pregnant after getting what they thought was their period?



I've had nausea and sore b**bs since a week before my period started. I continued to feel the same way during and now it's been 3 days since it stopped and I still feel like throwing up with sore breasts.



My period to begin with seemed lighter and definantly didn't last nearly as long. I usually have a 6-7 period with cramps with 3-4 of those days with a really heavy flow *TMI*. This time it lasted 4 days and I had sore b**bs and had nausea.



I'm trying to decide if it even worth taking a test because me and DH use condoms but I have no explanation as to why I feel so icky lately.

If it were me, I'd take a test, just because i hate not being absolutely sure. More than likely it's just a weird cycle, but stranger things have happened. :)

Yes, very recently actually. Mine is ending in miscarriage, but I would take a test. My period was 4 days, first day moderate with some clotting, bleeding near non existant days 2-4. Usually, I bleed for 7, super heavy the first and second day. I was late 6 days, and tested positive after the bleeding.

I'm sorry to hear this. :(



I'm thinking of testing. I'm also havin major heart burn and that's something I've only had when pregnant.



Did your "period" seem thinner? More like water then blood?

I had this happen to me in August. I had my normal PMS symptoms leading up to my "period." When my period came it was almost like normal, a day shorter than usual and maybe a little lighter, but I totally thought it was my period. The last couple days of my period my b**bs started hurting really bad again and I was really emotional. I thought it was some weird PMS symptoms that I was having. My husband talked me into taking a test and it was positive a week later and it was positive. Oh I took a test the day before my "period" and it was negative. I ended up having a MC within a day or two of getting the positive.

No, the first day was a decent flow of blood and some clots. Then just brown blood.
