Early pregnancy symptoms?

I am asking this instead of immediately taking a pregnancy test as I have been trying to conceive for just under a year with no luck and am afraid to take a test and see yet another negative. I have very irregular periods and was told by my doctor that I am able to conceive but that I do not ovulate as regularly as "normal" women. My last LMP was September the 15th and on October the 14th I had a very light period (this is unusual as when I do have periods, although irregular they are always heavy), this was only evident when I wiped. I now have very slight, dull achey pain in lower abdomen and had some sharp muscular pains in rectal muscle area earlier today. I am tired but am suffering from insomnia though mentally and physically tired. I have been very forgetful over the last 2 weeks and have been extremely thirsty. Also, earlier I felt very cold even when taking a very hot shower and my partner said my skin felt hot to the touch (before the shower obviously). I have been feeling angry the last two days as though on period but it hasn't started and as I have irregular cycles anyway I can't tell whether it's due to that. I am two weeks late according to my last two periods (one being very light). What do you think? Does anyone have a similar experience? I'd very much like to hear from mums who also suffered from abnormal menstrual cycles. I'm beginning to lose hope despite my doctors reassurance. Xx

No one can tell you if you're pregnant or not. Everyone is different. Many people have symptoms of pregnancy because its all in their head thinking they are pregnant when they are not. Like I said before none of us can tell you what we think. The only solution is to go to doctor or **** on a stick

i have to agree with payton. were not going to tell you here either just because it would be wrong for us to say yea you or when you're not. only shot is have a doctor tell you. were not going to get your hopes up especially if you have tested negative before.

Have you had any nausea at all? Sounds like you have a few symptoms. I had very irregular mentstral cycle as well.. im now 35 weeks pregnant. My symptoms were moodiness tiny bit on nausea and just feeling different. Only way to be sure tho is to take a test. Stay positive and don't give up!!:) let me know how it goes. Hoping the best for you

Thanks darksunshine it's nice to hear a success story. I haven't felt nauseous as such but deifinitely have felt a bit out of sorts. I felt hungrier today than normal but the past two weeks I've been uninterested in food (which I unusual for me, I normally have a very healthy appetite). I also have that feeling that I may be pregnant. Have never felt it this strongly before which is why I am so worried about taking a test, I really don't want to see another negative it may be all in my head but I do feel a lot different to normal. I have ordered a clearblue testing pack so polucking up courage for Monday delivery. Argh. Never thought it would be this hard and emotionally testing

Try not to stress. It could be the flu but it could also be pregnancy symptoms. If you've been activly trying and you have beeb told you are fertile then there is always a chance :-) you will have to take the test. Let us know! I hope you get your positive!
