About 4 1/2 wks. ago I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend. 1 1/2 week later I started having all kinds of symptoms starting with horrible bloating and gas (TMI SORRY) mild nausea, very fatigue, food cravings, and headaches. That next week began the unbearable sore and tender breast/tingling sensation in nipples (can't touch them too much, makes sleeping at night uncomfortable) mid to lower back aches, lower abdominal cramping but periodic and not all that painful, then started vomiting here and there, have milky/creamy like discharge but that started a couples early too, and it seems as though I can smell everything (gift and curse lol) I had that very distinctive metallic taste but it comes and goes, and I've been on an emotional roller coaster for a couple weeks as well. My cycle is due this Saturday (Oct. 25) and I'm sort of nervous to even take a test but on the other hand I want to know! I'm excited and nervous lol!! But I need advice on what I should do and to know if its possible that I may be pregnant!! Thanks in advance!!

Hi Dawnyale

Thanks for your post! 

There is nothing to do - just take a pregnancy test if you don't get your period. If it's due on Saturday then an early test may be accurate now. 

Good luck!
