My last period was July 14th - July 21st. [Either that or it was July 13th - July 20th.]
Anyway, I had intercourse July 24th and I had some light pink spotting July 27th. [I think that was from the actual intercourse.] Then I had some pinkish/reddish spotting July 30th. [I think that was from ovulating.] But then August 4th, I was cramping really bad and I had some red spotting, I thought I was starting my period a week early. [When I start my period it is never heavy and neither was this.] I put a pad on just in case and the cramping continued. Four hours later, after I got home from the store, I went to change my pad. [Once again, thinking I was on my period.] But when I looked and I virtually NOTHING on the pad. Just a small half ring of blood, no bigger than a dime. I haven't spotted since, but I have cramped slightly.
My other symptoms that I've had for about a week now are nausea, diarrhea*, and fatigue.
Recently I've been getting headaches off and on, and I just don't feel like myself.
I haven't missed a period yet, it's due in five days. [Saturday.]
Before I go buy a pregnancy test or get myself too excited, does it sound like I could be pregnant?
Or is something else going on with my body?
*The diarrhea isn't really like.. Diarrhea. I'm just going #2 more.
I used to go once in the mornings, now I got anywhere between three to five times a day.
I put July 13th into an ovulation calendar, and it said that you were fertile from July 24-29. So, you could have potentially conceived during that time. DH and I DTD on my first possible day of being fertile, thinking nothing would happen since we weren't trying at all, and surprise! I'm pregnant. Your bleeding could be either cervical irritation or implantation. I would say if you continue to feel crappy in the next few days, go ahead and get a test. You can get them for a dollar (that's what I used when I randomly thought I might be preggo). Good luck!
Yeah I have the diarrhea symptom too! I had that when I was pregnant but before i knew i was. I went to the doctors and they tested me and it was a neg. But 5 days later i tested and it was a BFP. And i get really really bad hot flashes. I didn't get a BFP until 10 days after AF was late.
