I had a period on October 14th and it was very light. I started having signs I could be pregnant. I am tired all the time, urinating a lot, headaches, wanting chocolate when I hate chocolate, and eating more. I also have breast tenderness. On October 30th I took a test and it had a faint pink line. I took another test later on that day and it was a very faint pink line.

My boyfriend and I are trying to conceive and have been having unprotected sex. I was due for my Depo-Provera shot on June 14 but haven’t gone and got it. Since then we have been having unprotected sex. I haven’t gotten on a period yet but had spotting for three days after being late for the shot but no period. I took a test two weeks after being late and it was negative. It’s been almost two weeks since I took the test and I’ve just started experiencing nausea. Hoping I am pregnant.

I have always had weird periods so I didn't even include that as a factor. I took a pregnancy test because I started eating a lot more than normal and for me that was a telltale sign because I didn't eat too much before and sure enough it came out positive.

I was pregnant early this year but around April scan showed my baby had not grown, it was still at 8 weeks while I was way past. After about some weeks I had a miscarriage and the doctor did evacuation for me and put me on some drug. That was around June. I didn't see my period in August. By September I didn't see it and pregnancy test was negative, so I took Clomid and metformin. With the first dosage my period came but this month I have not seen it and I took Provera, but it still hasn’t come.

I had gotten a lot of dizzy spells could barely stand without leaning or blacking out. That was my cue to go see my doctor, and he then told me I was pregnant.

My breasts got tender and I started feeling intense pain in my nipples before I found out that I am pregnant.
