    Hello!
    You've all probably had these threads a thousand times before but Im alittle anxious and would like an objective view!

    Im not due my period of another week but for about a week now I've been experiencing constant headaches, cramps, tiredness and frequent weeing! Now today I've been woken up with sickness which Im still experiencing and im sweating like a pig with no temperature!

    I would just like to know if any one else thinks its a possibility, whether or not I should buy a preggers test! They cost 9 quid you know!

    Thank you x

    For starters they don't cost £9. Get to Superdrug and get their own brand. Twin pack for £5 and they are on offer.. two for like £8 or something.

    Anyway, as to your symptoms, they do sound similar to pregnancy ones, but they can also be psychological. Like if you think you are pregnant, you start to spot other symptoms that confirm it in your head, even if its not true - if that makes sense.

    When did you have unprotected sex? It's probably not worth taking a test right now, i'd wait until at least a couple of days before your period is due. Keep an eye on your symptoms. But no harm in testing if you want to, but it may not show up. And remember, lines might be really faint.

    You might not be pregnant, your symptoms could be down to a virus or something. Anyway pregnancy tests are only a few quid....they are a pound in the pound shop.

    We've been discussing getting pregnant for abit now so its been a few weeks we've been having unprotected sex for.

    I understand you people are not my uterus, I would just like a different point of view other than my own!

    Yeah its a possibility they could be psychological, but before Ieven thought about it being pregnancy symptoms, I've been getting them. I thought I had swine flu!

    Thats what I thought! But you have to have a high temp or a fever for it to be swine flu.

    You're worried that £9 would be too much to pay for a pregnancy test and you're considering having a child?

    A urinary tract infection; the symptoms match.

    It's not a very pleasant infection at all.

    If this is true i am not sure you have the maturity or mental capacity to have a kid. You want a child but don't want to pay £9 to find out, you don't know what the symptoms of pregnancy are yet you are trying to get pregnant and you use the word preggers. I'm sure this is only the tip of the iceburg.

    Yep, ok

    I didnt realise to be able to fend for a child meant knowing what the symptoms of pregnancy were. My bad. And making a money joke. My bad again.

    Thank you those who have given me advice though!

    Well you just don't give the impression of being particularly prepared :dontknow: perhaps you are just not very eloquent.
