Question: This is all new to me

 Charlie1313 - Fri May 06, 2005 6:09 pm

I'm 19 years old and in college. I've been dating my boyfriend for 4 yrs and we had sex in the middle of april. I usually have my period between the 24-28th of every month. My last period was March 28. I have had cramps like when I'm on my period, sometimes I feel like I've started a flow but its just a white discharge, and i feel like i have a lump in my throat(like I swallowed a piece of gum).... i don't think its nausea but its uncomfortable and I feel uneasy sometimes (It comes and goes). I have felt like I would get sick a few times but instead I just burped( it left a sour taste in the back of my mouth). I took an EPT certainty digital test two days ago and it came up negative. Are these signgs of me being pregnant? Help please.

Signs of being pregnant mirror signs of PMS - its very hard to tell by symptoms if you are infact PG - the only obvious way to find out is by a missed period and a positive pregnancy test.
your "usually" not supposed to feel any symptoms of being PG until 5-6 weeks along..but everyone is different.

Hope you find your answers soon..

Well I am very early pregnant, 6 wks, so if you were pregnant u would only be about 3 weeks i'd say bc ur information is not to far off from mine. wait a week and if u haven't tsrated try another test but try first response. i found out i was pregnant with my first baby when i was 2 weeks from a first response. they work very well. some cramping is common with early pregnancy. i still have it now but not as bad. and i do feel like i have started bleeding but i haven't. although i don;t have any discharge. if u wanna talk to me about anything...i am not a doctor but i do have one child and pregnant now..u can email me at
