GigiSage replied to Sn0wWhiteQu33n's response:
Pregnancy symptoms mean nothing if you are not pregnant. Those are all generalized symptoms that could easily be attributed to other causes.

The only way to for sure know if you are pregnant is either by ultrasound or pregnancy test. If you believe you are pregnant then you should take an HPT or make an appointment with your doctor for a blood test.
