Period vs Pregnancy symptoms


I am currently TTC and am due to start my period in a few days. I am feeling like I normally do right before starting my period. Does this mean I am probably not pregnant? Or can I still have period symptoms before having a positive pregnancy test?

Everyone is different, some get different symptoms when pregnant, others don't feel any different than how they usually would feel before AF Only way to know is to take a HPT, the closer to your expected AF date the more sure you can be of the result. Getting a BFP is also different, some can get one as early as 8 dpo, others need to wait until around 14 dpo or even well after AF was supposed to come

Not necessarily! My early pregnancy symptoms were exactly like pms...tender breasts, mild cramping/bloating, feeling extra tired, etc. I have long cycles, so if it weren't so early in my cycle I would have thought I was about to start my period.

Wait it out and test good luck!

Thank you for the responses. I am supposed to start AF today and so far have just had very light pink spotting on and off...hoping AF just won't come and that it means pregnancy

When I see that pink spotting, AF surely comes, but I hope you get that BFP! I have been ttc for 3 years, no luck, just more painful AF each month

I am in the same boat. My period is due on the 12th this month and right now I feel like I do normally before I get my period so I am fairly convinced I missed this month But I did read last night to try and bring some hope, some forums where most women say its darn near impossible for them to tell if they are pregnant or if they are getting AF because the symptoms are the same. So I guess I am holding out a tiny bit of hope still!! This is our first month TTC so I know that it probably wont happen the first time. Fingers crossed if not this month then soon after!! I thought about testing today, I would be 11/12 days post Ovulation but I just feel like maybe I should wait. I've been having mild cramping and my nipples are really sore. Earlier on I had twinges and stabbing on my left side, super vivid dreams and a pulling sensation down there and a heavy feeling.. I've also really wanted to have sex, ALL the time, lol which is unlike me at this point in my cycle FOR SURE. So either this is just a weird period or something else is going on.

I can relate


Hi there, I'm new here and TTC for almost 6 mos.
Nice to be on here with you ladies...

Thought I'd reply to the first thing I saw which resonated for me! Was feeling super hopeful following a positive HSG tubes test - they were open and that was a relief! Test from 2 years ago showed one blocked so I was worried. All other tests have been normal.
SO, this month, I thought maybe this is it! My cylces are shorter now that I'm 36. AF due today, and I'm feeling some lower tummy grumbles (usually first signs that AF is very close).
Just the waiting game....
Been worried that my former smoking has aged my eggs beyond repair...trying to stay hopeful, but LORD do I wish I'd read that research THEN!!! Best of Baby Dust to you!!!

Hi mojojojo

Do not worry. It's never too late to re-condition your body to the optimal shape for conceiving.

Remember, both your and your husband needs to lay off smoking. Both parties play a part in fertility.

Start engaging in simple exercises, yoga, healthy diet and you will feel the positive body change in you within 1 month.

I wish you all the best in the BPF within the next few cycles!

P.S Avoid unnecessary stress from the TWW too.

Trust your body!!


I hope I can post this here!! I found this thread because I was convinced that AF was coming because I was having cramping... and I am pregnant! I found out last week. SO even if YOU ARE cramping take heart that it actually could be implantation! My cramping felt exactly the same as period cramping, was pretty bad and painful, but my period just never came.... each morning, I was like ok its coming today, there is NO way after last nights cramps... and it still was elusive. I waited 5 DAYS because I was certain it was on its way. On the fifth morning I tested and low and behold SUPER positive!!!

Thanks for posting this, Smile! I'm 10DPO and I had some pink spotting that turned to brown spotting yesterday evening with nasty cramping last night. I was convinced that I was out, but you've given me a little hope. Thank you!
