Early Symptoms of Pregnancy?

Hi Everyone!

Just wondering if lower back pain can be a very early indicator of pregnancy? Been getting a lot of it lately as well as headaches, lightheadedness and feeling slightly sickly... missed 3 of my birth control pills at the end of my cycle and then went on to my 7 day break without taking them... I have to wait another week and a half before I can test properly. Please help?

Its possible. Nausea, vomiting, dizzines, back aches can be early symptoms of pregnancy. However, stress and fear of becoming pregnant can cause many symptoms as well. I know that isnt really helpful.

Just have to wait and see.

Almost anything could be a symptom of early pregnancy.  The only way to know for sure is to test.

Yep, those are all early pregnancy symptoms.  They are also PMS symptoms.  You're just going to have to wait it out.  Best of luck to you!

I had my last period on 2/10/06.  i was due to ovulate on the 21st of february.  I had sex that entire week just to make sure that i didn't miss ovulation.  I have a 26-27 day cycle.. My expected period was due March 7, 2006.  On March 5th I started with brown spotting, then on March 6 I saw some red spotting. Not a lot, but enough for a pantiliner but it certainly wasn't a normal.  Mostly when I wiped myself I noticed the red spotting.  Then on the day my actual period was suppose to arrive I had pink spotting.  I took a pregnancy test and it was negative.

??? Is it too early to test?
How long should I wait?
Could I be prengant?
Since February is a short month, could it take longer for me to implant?
