Are the earliest signs/symptoms of pregnancy the same if you are breastfeeding? I mean a lot of signs are similar to that caused by breastfeeding correct? Lately I have been feeling slightly nauseous at smells and just a little nauseous in general, bloated, and my nipples have been sore when I breast feed but not sore if I touch them. I get some headaches. In fact it was weird I felt a little nauseous during sex last night (Don't tell hubby LOL) Maybe its a virus??
It has been so long since I had a period (since I just got my IUD removed and I didn't have one the entire time and I am breastfeeding)
So I don't know if these are period symptoms or what. Or when I would test since no AF. The earliest I had sex was August 5th. Could you feel preggo symptoms that soon?
The signs can be the same.. If you think you might be pick up a cheap test from the $store or $tree they have $1 test that work great.. I just took my IUD out Aug 1st and still not ppaf here either.. if you got pg from that dtd on the 5th then it should show up now. It takes most women 10-14 days to test bfp... I test monthly just to make sure... Good luck
If you become pregnant while you're breastfeeding, you may experience all the same symptoms you would expect of a typical pregnancy. I read it can take up to 3 months after you stop breastfeeding to get your period back. Even if you are supplementing you might not get it.
