Question for Betty.

We have been trying to conceive for almost a year.  My period is due today, but, I've been having very sharp cramping in my stomach and also diarrhea for the past week.  Also, I feel tired all the time, and I've got sore breasts.  Can I maybe be pregnant?

Betty's Answer.

Yes, you could be pregnant!  However, the only sure way to find out is to get a pregnancy test.  Early symptoms include: sore breasts, fatigue, spotting, abdominal cramps, nausea, headaches, food cravings and slight fever.  These can also be caused by other things like a stomach virus.  You can buy a home pregnancy test or make an appointment with the SHCC for a pregnancy test.
