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 too early for signs???

1 answers
I recently had unprotected sex with my boyfriend who has a very high sperm count. I haven't had a period in a while but am still able to get pregnant. Normally I don't think twice about it, nor do I show any signs. This time I have a gut feeling and am now showing early signs including...nausea, fatigue, heightened sense of smell, weird cravings, slight cramping, runny nose, headaches, my face is rather "glowing", I'm moody, frequent urination, and now a little discharge. I tried asking for expert advice but had no luck. I was told that I could possibly be showing these signs bc since I don't produce the normal female hormones, as opposed to a female with regular periods, that the possible change in my hormone levels are causing these early sings. On the other hand, I've been told that it's all in my head. I don't know what to believe and I know that it's too early to take a test. I don't have a clue what to think or do...any advice???

How recently did you have sex? It's really not possible to experience pregnancy symptoms until a fertilized egg has implanted in your uterine wall, which normally happens about 7-10 days after the unprotected sex. But generally speaking, pregnancy symptoms like the ones you described don't start occurring until at least 6 weeks after implantation.If you think you might be pregnant you should take a pregnancy test or you should see your doctor.
