I dont think it is but just curious. Thanks for the help

I know exactly how you are feeling! You are evaluating every ache, cramp, tingling and any other symptom to give you a sign if you are pregnant. It is amazing that something as amazing as becoming pregnant-- a fertilized egg implanting into your uterus--would not produce a few more signs as it is happening! My husband and I tried for 6 months before I became pregnant, and EVERY month I was doing the same thing as you-- wondering and waiting.

You are doing everything you can, from frequent sex around the time that you are most likely most fertile, to tracking your fertile window.

The symptoms you are experiencing could be anything or nothing, honestly. Unfortunately, pre-menstrual symptoms, implantation and early-pregnancy symptoms mimic each other so closely that it is difficult to distinguish. I am sure you have done much reading on this topic, and know that many women do not feel implantation. Some women do feel a little cramp or see a little spotting. Plus, cramps and other symptoms could also be from your digestive system.

The only way to know if you are pregnant is to wait until your period begins or to take a home pregnancy test once you have missed your expected period. Hang in there...and let us know either way!

As I said earlier...it could be an early period, it could be gas cramps, it could be pregnancy-related. No one can tell you until you have either missed a period, your period has started, or a home pregnancy test confirms; at this point, it is all speculation. I know it's agonizing to wait, but try to be patient, positive and hopeful...but also try to be active in other areas of your life, so you are not dwelling on every possible symptom. It really will create much stress and worry.

Regarding your previous question: a home pregnancy test will only be accurate once you have missed your period (I know they claim to be able to detect pregnancy hormones 5 days before your period...they may/may not; the accuracy rate is much lower. Once you open the box, the disclaimers say that they aren't 99% accurate until you have missed your period).

Yea thats what I thought, I am due for my period around the 26th, so I am going to do an early pregnancy test on Saturday the 22nd, if it isn't positive I will just wait and see if I miss my period. I am keeping my fingers crossed lol.
