Let me introduce myself a little first. My name is Renee (hence the username), and I'm 23. I live in Ontario, Canada. If I'm pregnant, the father & I are no longer together, and I wouldn't even know how to go about contacting him now. My period isn't due until September 21, however, two days ago I woke up with just the *instinct* that I'm pregnant. And then as the day progressed, I would have to pee way more than usual. I usually only go every couple hours or so, and I find myself having to pee every half hour - 45 minutes or so. Not only that, I have NONE of my period symptoms/signs. I'm actually bloated, and I don't get bloated before my period. I'm so sleepy. All the time. I will wake up around 8:30 in the morning after a decent nights sleep (no different than before), and by noon I'm EXHAUSTED. I'm not usually a milk drinker, and for the past couple days, I've had a huge craving for milk - it's all I want to drink, but when I do, it makes me feel like throwing up. And when I try to lay on my stomach, I feel pressure. Any ideas, ladies?
You could very well be getting symptoms before your period. I always have, but everyone is different. Unless you are just WANTING to wait another week, I would test now so that you don't spend the next week worrying. You can go to the dollar store and buy a test for a $1 that would be accurate since your period was due.
The earliest I would suggest testing is the day of your missed period, so if you haven't gotten it, I would say it is safe to go ahead and test. I actually found that the months that I was so sure I was pregnant and had signs during my two wait that I wasn't pregnant but the month I got my BFP I had no symptoms until about 6 weeks when the UTI's and some sickness started. Either way good luck!
