My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now. I have been tracking my periods and ovulations and trying to have sex during those times. This month I'm having breast tenderness and frequent urination. I also have noticed that I have a lot more pimples. I usually havr extremely clear skin. Could this mean I'm pregnant? My cycle is not due to start until later this week.

Hi,


Fingers crossed it is good news for you! It is hard to know whether it is your period (PMS) or you are experiencing early signs of pregnancy. Some women can get early signs while others dont (the early sign is normally a missed period).


The best bet would be to wait until your period is due,and if no sign of it arriving take a test. If it's negative, wait a couple days then take another one and go from there. Eventually a positive test, or your period will arrive.
