Most women I know can tell you they are about to start their period, usually because there is key symptoms that clue you in paired with knowing when your period is due.
If I cry for no reason, almost guaranteed that I will start my period the next morning.
It usually goes like this. Cute Coca Cola Polar Bear ad comes on TV. My throat tightens a little bit, my face swells and gets red, and tears sneak out of the corners of my eyes. Why? Because they are just so cute and touching!! (BLAH - I mean really??? The rest of the time I don’t even care about those silly cartoon bears) and promptly the Warrior Princess will laugh. Because she knows!!
Crying because the sky is blue? That’s just one symptom of a long line and lucky for me I suffer from several of them:
Mood Swings and Stress
Swollen Tender Breasts
Food Cravings (I’m sorry did I just eat a whole pizza??)
Whew! That’s quite a list, scary part is it isn’t complete.
Guess what? These just so happen to be the early symptoms of pregnancy also! Here are a few more:
Most obvious – missed period BUT you can still have something called implantation bleeding.
Elevated Body Temprature.
Needless to say, it can be crazy making! As I head closer to taking another pregnancy test and I battle with these different symptoms, I just don’t know what to think of what my body is telling me. If you have been pregnant, did you notice anything different before getting a positive pregnancy test and if so what?
