I'm kind of panicking. My last period started on August 1st and lasted 4 days. It was pretty normal but usually my periods last about 5-7 days. My husband and I had sex on the 8th and then on the 10th. We use condoms...somewhat. I'm not on BC pills so we will start sex without one and then he'll put one on before he's ready to climax inside of me. I ovulated on the 15th. For about 1 to 2 and 1/2 weeks, these have been my symptoms (today is the 20th):
-A lot of burping! (no noise, just gas bubbles coming up and out of my throat) I don't usually burp...at all.
-anxiety- my nerves just feel very on edge for no reason at all with random sweaty palms
-fatigue- almost falling asleep on my desk at work and knocking out cold at night in bed
-for the past two days, I've gotten some mild, dull cramping where my period cramps should be. (I'm not supposed to start my period until the 29th) They've been on and off all day, both days
-not really nausea, just kind of feel like I'm going to vomit but nothing ever happens. My palms will get sweaty and I'll start to salivate a lot (that feeling you get right before you vom)
I'm now 5 DPO, 9 days before my period is due. Could I actually be pregnant? If so, can I test this early? Otherwise, what's wrong with me?

If you have had those symptoms for 2 1/2 weeks and you are only 5DPO, it is not likely that you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms. You could just have a virus or bug that is going around...hard to say. If you want to put your mind at ease, I'd wait another week to take a pregnancy test.

If you had sex on the 8th and the 10th there is a very very slim chance you could be pregnant if you ovulated on the 15th for sure. Male sperm can live inside a woman's body for up to 5 days so the sex on the 8th wouldn't have gotten you pregnant and the sex on the 10th MAY have, but not likely. 5dpo would be too early to test. You would have to wait at least another five days or so and symptoms can start right away, but you said you have been having them for two weeks and you would only be less than a week pregnant, so I don't think that is it.

Thanks, ladies. These replies really do help. I wish I knew what was going on. It's just weird. Maybe I'm just getting older or my anxiety is getting out of control...which stinks I'll talk to my doc and see what he says.
