My other half and I had sex on the 2nd January (he pulled out EXTREMELY last minute) and I was predicted to ovulate on the 5th, although I felt the familiar cramps from around the 3rd, so I think I ovulated earlier than predicted (my cycles vary and so ovulation doesn't always take place when it's predicted to).

I noticed I was spotting - a light brown/pink colour - on both the 5th and 6th. After that, I have been having cramps that feel IDENTICAL to period cramps and are still experiencing them. They feel, also, like I'm going over hills in a car, when your stomach 'drops' after driving over one. I feel this most of the day and when I'm in bed at night, even when I'm not moving.

Also, on the 6th, I overslept by about 5 hours, despite multiple alarm clocks. Ever since then I've been extremely tired all the time, fall asleep during the day and oversleep on a daily basis. (I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Jan of last year, but this definitely feels more severe than the fatigue I'm used to).

I also do not have an appetite at all. Everything I DO eat either tastes different to me (some of my favourite foods have no taste to me) or I eat something that I normally don't like and find it delicious (I ate so many carrots the other day and LOVED them).

My final 'symptom' is that the veins on my breasts are EXTREMELY noticeable and very blue, and the areolas have started to increase in size, or appear to have to me.

AF is due on the 20th, but as my cycles can range from 22-28 days, I'm not sure when my next period is actually due. My last period was on 24th Dec and last for 4 days...

Also, when I PMS, I never get any other symptoms but cramps and crabbiness. So, these other symptoms are completely new to me...

Does it sound like I'm pregnant or is there another reason for these symptoms? Advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

If you did O on the 3rd depending on how long your LP is you could probably expect your period the 19-20th. Right now you would only be 6 dpo so it might be too early for symptoms but who knows every is different! Also sometimes when you are ovulating you can get similar signs of pregnancy symptoms. Our bodies really should come with a better manual.

I wonder if you could have actually ovulated earlier than the 3rd? Since you sometimes have short cycles, that could be a possibility. Did you have unprotected sex prior to the 2nd?

With my last pregnancy my first sign something was up was cramping a week after we DTD. At first I passed them off as gas pains, but they didn't go away.

Keep us posted!
