Did you feel like you were getting your period when you were really pregnant?

(I know that I asked this question in another post, but I thought I'd start a seperate thread.)

Just about everyone does. And vice versa--many people feel like they are pregnant when they are about to get there period.

Yup, that`s right. It is almost like a menstrual cycle is the exercise for pregnancy and childbirth. PMS, pregnancy - very similar. I just wonder whether menopause will feel like that, too, with no end in sight....

Yep. I totally thought AF was coming, and I just took an HPT the morning I was due just to check, and it was positive. For me, it was like AF symptoms times ten...especially with the emotional part.

I fainted, just a little clear pink blood came and that it . Justcramps bloating and very sore nipples, ugly marks on my belly. I think I'm ready for a test.. I was not sure until my husband told me he pretendted to use a condom..

with my first pregnancy it felt like AF was about to come but i was so caught up in work i didnt even realize that i missed AF. I found out Jan. 21st 2006 that i was already 6 weeks 6 days pregnant!! me and my husband were trying then when we had no luck i just spent all my time on work and not trying and BAM!! two months later we find out were going to be having a baby!! we are trying for number 2 now cause we want our kids close in age, and so far i am a month and a half late and i just started having some pretty bad cramps today. i have already taken 5 hpts and one pregnancy test at the doctors office and all came up negitive, but i am feeling like im pregnant so we will see!!

Yes, my husband and I are in the 'not-quite-trying' (but certainly not preventing stage).... I was due on the 22nd but haven't started yet.  Took a test on Monday, negative, but I didn't think much of it because I feel like I normally do when AF starts... guess maybe I should let myself start wondering .... (too early to get excited, obviously)

My period is 5 days late. I've been convinced that I am going to start, but every time I run to the bathroom... Nothing. My breasts are very swollen, I'm exhausted, light headed, mild headaches, body aches, and cramps. My PMS normally runs the same w/ minor cramps, headaches, and kind of swollen breasts, but this time it's like a whole new wave length of symptoms. I have a 2-yr old son, so I've been pregnant before, and I vaguely remember having the sensation of going to start, but actually being pregnant. I took a test yesterday and it was negative, but when I woke up this morning still nothing. I am really confused and I have to say that I am an emotional wreck, I cried at a hallmark commercial this morning, which is rediculous. Is this really bad PMS or could I be pregnant? How long should I wait to take another test?
