I'm only on CD 24 of a 40 day cycle. My tummy is killing me (period-like cramps)... keep spotting... my sense of smell has gone CRAZY... This has been going on for a few weeks, and now this morning I thew up for no reason whatsoever... All of these are the same symptoms I had when I was pregnant. EXCEPT I know that I can't be pregnant (I have a coil) and my period is not even due until the 19th. I took a pregnancy test today just to be sure and it was invalid (i.e. nothing happened - no control line, no pink dye, nothing ). I've bought 2 more to test with tomorrow morning so it rules it out completely. But WHY am I getting all these symptoms?? These cramps are so bad, and everything STINKS, which is making me feel sick! I even smelt sausages this afternoon and thought they smelt delicious!! I'm a vegetarian and the smell of meat usually makes me feel SICK! Wtf is going on?? Stupid body. Stupid hormones. Any ideas?
