Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Is it possible to have early warning signs before you miss your period?

I've been feeling yucky for days, but still have a week before my period. I don't really want to waste the $ on an early pregnancy test if it's all in my head.

I would wait until you miss your period.  I sometimes when I am about to start get sick and it is usually a week before I start.  But yet again I didn't know I was pregnant with my last 2 pregnancies until after I missed my period because I thought I was just about to start.  So just wait and see if you start.  If you feel anxious though then buy the test.
took the test - negitive.  2 days over due on my period....  waiting sucks!
Yeah, there are early warnings - my biggest 'warning' is that I didn't get my normal mood-swing-y PMS that I usually do.  PMS is caused by a sudden drop in hormones (which happens when your egg realizes it isn't fertilized), and when I took a bad job interview really well at 'that time of the month,' I knew :) Usually you won't get morning sickness until a few weeks after you miss a period, so that's not always the best indicator.  I've had that sort of false alarm too. Good luck - I hope you get whatever result you're wishing for!
