I am welcoming all the information I can get from new and experienced mommies to be.
Here is my story...
About 4 days ago my breasts started to hurt a feel a little swollen. This is normal right before my period, it usually lasts 1-2 days. But then a day after I had severe stomach cramps. It lasted for about 12 hours and was gone the next day. I rarely get stomach cramps when I get my period. It usually just lower back aches. Now here we are today.. My breasts have grown in size and are still very painful.
The stomach cramps could have been a symptom of my Crohns disease but they didn't feel like my normal Crohns cramps. I am starting to think I am having phantom pregnancy symptoms. I feel like I have to urinate more than often and I believe there are more noticeable veins on my breast. I feel tired but I blame the heat (live in AZ).
My husband and I have intercourse regularly without protection. We use the infamous pull out method which we both know is not 100% safe. I don't chart my period (bad girl I know) and since being diagnosed with Crohns I haven't had a cycle that was regular.
I have a doctors appointment early next month so I will just get a blood test then if nothing happens before... I hope it doesn't
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. What were your earliest signs of pregnancy?
