Signs of Pregnancy
I am wondering what signs there are that you are pregnant before doing a pregnancy test. I did an ovulation kit about a week ago to find out when i ovulate because my cycles have been irregular. It is like a pregnancy test as in when you have 2 lines on the test it means you have an LH surge and are either ovulating or within a few days you will ovulate. Well my husband have had sex regularly for the last week. My question is what are some signs i may be pregnant before I take the pregnancy test. With my son i had no signs i was pregnant until i missed my cycle or if i had symptoms i never realized it. Today i have been nauseous, had tailbone pressure, really low abdominal cramping. I know that I am at least a week and a half away from my cycle. Any advice would be great. I also would like to know if anyone can tell me how soon before a missed cycle i can do a pregnancy test.
So What Happened?™
Thank you all for the advice. I did a pregnancy test on Friday and then another one today...both were negative. Also today I started spotting. Not sure what is going on but I figure I will wait and see if I get a period or what happens with my cycle. Then we will go from there. Thanks again for the advice!!!

Try eating Mexican. That would always tell me before a pregnancy test. I could eat Mexican and be so sick and bloated that I looked 3 mos. pregnant.

I knew I was pregnant before I took the test because I was EXTREMELY....well, I'll be nice and say "moody". I normally don't get PMS "moodiness" so I knew something was up!
Good luck! I hope the test is positive for you! :)
