How to tell when you are pregnant.

One thing that I’ve been struggling with is being able to tell if I could pregnant or if it’s just regular endometriosis symptoms. I try to not get my hopes up on if I think I could be pregnant this time around or not. I get similar symptoms of pregnancy usually a week or two before my period. I get so excited thinking could I be pregnant this time, and then such disappointment when my period comes. I’ve spent who knows how much on pregnancy tests timing let’s see only for them to come negative every time. I would love to hear what symptoms you guys had that clued you to know you were in fact truly pregnant? I’ve been extremely nauseous, but that’s nothing new. I have sensitive breasts, still not new. I’ve been urinating a lot, but not new. I’ve been cramping on and off lightly, not new. However, the only new thing is I’ve had a bigger appetite. Sometimes I wonder if I get in my head too much, cause I want it so badly.

  1. I just wanted to send you some hugs. I don't have any experience with being pregnant so I am sorry I can't offer advice there. Sometimes the stress we put on ourselves of wanting to become pregnant, can also bring on symptoms as well, that I am definitely familiar with. And certainly, experience those same symptoms as you. I think one sign I have seen many women experience when they are pregnant, is they start craving certain foods and maybe find foods they typically enjoy, make them sick. Have you chatted with your doctor about other signs you can look out for, or do they have any thoughts/suggestions for you? -Kimberli (advocate)
