Early Pregnancy Symptoms???

I am 25 years old and think I may be pregnant. My fiancé and I had sex during the time of my ovulation this past month. About 1 week later I started having cramps, getting excessively weepy over small things, had a horrible angry day, and started peeing a lot. I started spotting 8 days after those symptoms started and it seems I am having a light period. I am extremely regular with ovulation, menstruation and pms symptoms. I have never had pms symptoms for that long before a period and have never had such a light period since getting off birth control about 3 years ago. My periods always come on very strong and abruptly and I only spot on the last day. With this one, I couldn't wear a tampon if I wanted to... I am only using panty liners. I am have been lying in bed for two hours and have gotten up to pee 4 or 5 times. My thirst is unquenchable. I had a very low fever earlier in the evening and had a headache off and on for the last couple of days. Any thoughts??

Thanks for any help!

I would say wait until the day of your missed period and take an early response pregnancy test

You could be pregnant. The light period you describe sounds like it could be implantation spotting. You're probably getting pretty close to when your period would be due, so you can probably go ahead and do a home pregnancy test. Just make sure to do it in the morning with your first morning urine (FMU). But I'm wondering with some of those symptoms if you might not actually have a UTI also? If you don't improve soon and you keep having those symptoms (fever and frequent urination), you might want to see your doctor to be safe.

Not sure if you're trying to conceive or not, but I hope it works out however you want it to! Good luck! Keep us posted!
