Is it possible that I am pregnant?

Okay, so, I am going to try to make a long description into a short one.

I am a regular 30 days. I am married and my husband and I don't always use protection. We just enjoy each other however we feel at the moment. My usual pms symptoms are cramps my first day and swollen chest almost every other month. Nothing else really happens (thank God!). My period is supposed to start in four days. (I have been spot on with my period arrival for the past several months.)

It hit me the day my boobs starting hurting (almost two weeks ago). They still hurt today, not unbearably, but it hurts to hug people, run, take my bra off or if things rub up against me. I started getting a lot hungrier about a week ago. Eating family size portions all by myself. A lot of carbs, green beans, pineapple and oranges. Two days ago I felt a little cramping but it didn't last but a few minutes. Last night I had a killer headache and my nose was driving me crazy. I also felt a little nauseous after eating yesterday.
Today, 4 days before my period, I felt a slight cramping but it lasted a little longer. My boobs are still really sore. I was really tired today. I felt like I was on benadryl. I took a 2.5 hour nap. I never take naps. Ever. I was also really sensitive to some smells today. My husband ate a leftover burger from McD's this morning and it was so strong! It made me want to throw up. He had to eat it away from me, and take the bag too. I also smelled the Cheez-its he had left open on the table.

I know that all these symptoms could be because of other things, but what do you all think? I just don't know if I should be getting my hopes up. We had already had two false alarms this year.

Hello ravenzone,

I think you need to wait. If your period is late by at least one week, take a home pregnancy test. Read and follow the directions carefully and be sure to use your first urine of the morning to test. This will ensure that you do not get a false positive test.

Keep us posted,
