am i pregnant?

hello me and my husband have been trying to conceive #2 for a few months now, and i've been having the strangest feeling that i am pregnant. its too early to do a hpt. i've been having weird stretching and pinching sensations in my lower and upper abdomen along with very vivid dreams, cravings, frequent urination, and insomnia. I have been taking GNC's folic acid for only about 2wks now. my period is due on July 10th but the suspense is killing me. anyone else out there experiencing like symptoms or any answers as to whether or not i could possibly be pregnant. any responses are greatly appreciated. fingers xx for a BFP!!!

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that it is rare to experience pregnancy symptoms before the test is positive, because you don't have any pregnancy hormone in your system. I never discount a woman's intuition though--I have had them myself!
Good luck!

Absolutely possible. With my twins I started to get extremely see nipples from 6dpo.  I was super lethargic n 8&9dpo and got positive test at 11dpo.

I then had 3 mc. With each pregnancy the scraping nipples started at 2,4 & 4dpo. At 8dpo on ALL 3 I felt a sudden pinch and lethargy again...

My last pregnancy the nipples started doing their thing (like ice cold glass scraping them lol) from 2dpo!! At 8dpo I could barely move I was so exhausted. Almost cancelled meal out. When I got home, I laid in bed and for about 20 mins I ad mid cramping... A 'pop' and it stopped... 3 days later positive test! My first 2 children I had no symptoms other than fatigue but when I tested the line was really dark and this was 1995 so can't imagine clearblue was overly sensitive back then lol...
I think your body knows... Your progesterone rises a bit more when you have conceived and this is what causes the symptoms. Good luck :)
