i have come to find that a lot of women on here have experienced a cold during the first few weeks of pregnancy...and i was wondering if this sounded similar??? OK so AF was late by 10 days and i started medium mauve (light pinkish red) bleeding on the 25th along with a major head cold (sinus problems,headache, stuffy nose) 26th it tapered off to a light flow with some discharge on only 2 pads.......from 26th (10pm-10pm on the 27th) there was no bleeding at all and then on the 28th there was some pink discharge which i only had a couple of times mainly when i wiped and a few spots on my pad.......during this entire time i have had the headache, sinus trouble, and stuffy nose........ and i have had this since my supposed AF was over!!! im not sure if it could be pregnancy related as i still have symptoms and have had them for 4 weeks today! before anyone asks i did take 2 tests on thursday(21st) one was a light BFN and the other was inconclusive!!!
I'm not sure about a head cold, but I know I have been sneezing a lot. I only just found out I was pregnant and I also know that I am not that far along. I also know that it took a blood test to show I was pregnant, the home test never did show up as positive.
Oh yeah... pregnant women get the brunt of just about every symptom imaginable. Because of the increased blood flow to the baby you're going to have pressure in your sinuses. This can cause nosebleeds, sneezing, runny nose, etc. I've also heard of pregnant women getting sore throats a lot and that's probably due to inflammation or infection by other symptoms. Not sure and I'm not a doctor!
girl if we arnt more alike!!! I started AF on the 25th. She kept switching colors. Like bright orange, dark red/black pink & brown. It was annoying! Lol. But guess what?! I have a cold too. I neverrrrr get colds. But the past two days have been miserable. :(
i just started getting a sore throat earlier this afternoon....and a slight cough! i know u can really just take Tylenol during pregnancy, but i have taken some sinus meds with the acetaminophen in them and they didn't work and neither does just regular Tylenol...i am afraid to take anything else just in case! i usually only get a cold once a year and thats around christmas well the last 3 christmas's i have had a cold! when i was preggo with DS i got a cold when i was about 6 weeks and it lasted for 2 weeks, it sucked but all i could take was tylenol!
joy,lady,shay----thanks for the info im googling stuff as i type...lol (took me 10 minutes just to type this...LOL)
I've been taking DayQuil Cold & Flu. Not that often but it REALLY helps sooth my throat. It starts right then too. I can breathe with it. It says it's Alcohol Free/Antihistamine Free/Sugar Free. I just needed something to help. Tylenol doesn't really help me at all. I've only taken it about twice. I'm kinda iffy on taking medicines anyways. I've always been that way.. I wear flip flops 24/7. Even during WINTER, and I've NEVER gotton a cold. But, the time I dont go anywhere.. I get one. STRANGE ISN'T IT! LOL. And it's HOT.
same here! OMG, DH complains about me wearing flip flops in the winter...so i have to put boots or tennis shoes on just to satisfy him...LOL! i just re-read my post and noticed i said "the cold started when my AF was 'over' but i meant to say since supposed AF arrived....silly me (tricks are for kids)...<-------lol im bored had to get a laugh out of myslef...LOL
hahaha. I think we all are really. Just a box of "froot loops" LOL. I hear complaining from everyone about wearing flip flops constantly. I can't stand socks. Or shoes. They make me feel like I'm closed in. I'M VERY WEIRD AND OCD! haha. I really think mine started the last few days of AF. But, didn't take FULL effect until the day b4 yesterday.
i coughed just now and i felt the worst pain...kinda felt like something was ripping my right ovary out! OOOUUCCHH!!! ..............when that happened i recalled having the same episode when i was around 7-8 weeks with my son....i was standing in my family room talking to DH and i coughed and the pain literally dropped me to the floor! DH scrambled to pick me up and was freaking out and thought he was gonna have to rush me to the e.r. and i told him that it was okay......that it was probably just DS !
Thats what I'm feeling. I feel this pain on my right side. AND, I forgot to mention. I'm not peeing a MILLION times more like I was when b4 & during AF, but I'm still going pretty frequently. More than I should anyways. I feel like I'm about to get heartburn. Gosh. you ever get that when ur sick?
just wondering???? okay so AF was over on friday....today is sunday so i shouldn't be feeling ovulation cramps right now should i???? the entire top of my pubic bone area is cramping up like AF is about to start!!!!!!
well that is a little early! but to be on the safe side.. well.. BD soon. lol I know exactly what your talking about though. So who knows??! Your AF was the same as mine! Lol Well the begining and end dates anyways. Maybe you ARE preggers and it hasnt' shown up yet.
I think maybe you should keep testing and see what happens. I've been going to google and typing in... I didnt know I was pregnant... and watching those videos of women who took test after test and it never showed up until they were in labor. That's a scarey mess! Oh and I've been on you tube watching birth videos. Educational. :) lol
I dont know if you've seen this or not. But there's a video, I believed its called, Breast Feeding at 8 or something like that. Would you ever breast feed your child until they were 8 years old? I dont know, things like that make me uncomfortable. Not breast feeding your child.. Just the thought that their old enough to be potty trained, eating real food, and going to school sets me off BIG TIME.
i had seen a few talk shows about this woman who was breast feeding her three kids...one was 3 , 6, & 11.....(all boys) at 11 they pretty much now the ins & outs about sex well atleast they start teaching it in the 6th grade here so why would a woman want her son still sucking at that age i could understand the 3 year old but not 6 and 11...i mean come on who wouldn't be uncomfortable with that!????!!!!!?????!!!!
i started dosing off in my computer chair and then bub started crying so i went to be......thank goodness bub finally slept in an extra 2 1/2 hours this morning..i really needed it!!!! i have been getting up between 5-7am since he was born nad that's was 2 1/2 years ago!!!! today is the 7th day in a row that i have woken up with a headache, it's not a major one but im gonna have to end up going to the doctor if it doesn't go away....i have taken a total of 20 Tylenol in the past 8 days..........symptoms since waking::::::nausea, headache,ovarian pain, slight back ache, stuffy nose, throbbing breast pain, a few twinges in the right area......but currently my sore throat that started yesterday evening and lasted until i went to bed is now gone!!!!! i'm gonna go by some dollar test tomorrow cause nothing around here is open today...."HAPPY LABOR DAY EVERYONE!!!" darn that ***** DH does carpentry and he has to work today from 6am-6pm and possibly go to his other carpentry job and not make it home till 9-10 tonight! so I'll most definitely have to weight on the tests!!!!!
i never breastfed (tried with no luck), but my mom, SIL, and sis all three got to breastfeed and they all stopped breastfeeding between 10 months and a year to introduce cow's milk, the only downside i have ever heard of is that some babies can be allergic to breast milk (aggravates the digestion)...google it and see what you come up with!!!!.....bunches of luck and happiness throughout!!!
I seriously feel like I have the flu. I have not been this sick in years. I tried eating Mcdonalds earlier... I couldn't even eat all of it. I have no taste left. Lastnight, I got a lot of CM. Then my left nipple was burning like no tomorrow. I feel like I could throw up but, nothings happening. Cough isn't better yet either. Still sneezing a lot, runny/stuffy nose... Oh and last night I checked my breasts.... and my nipples keep getting huge and the small.... back & forth. The size around my nipple has gotton ridiculous. lol
I had a fever of 100.7 last night also. It's back down to 98.9.
last night at dinner was the first time i ate anything all day! but i am taking vitamins and drinking plenty of OJ and water! OMG! mine was just the opposite! i was sitting in our family room watching a movie and my Right breast started throbbing and my nipple felt like it was on fire....i told DH and he put his hand over my right breast and told me he actually felt heat coming from my breast! 100.2 is as high as my fever has gone! i checked it this morning and it was 98.9 as well! are the lil bumps around your nipps prominent as well??
