The Strange, Unusual and Uncommon Very Early Signs of Pregnancy

Posted on August 2nd, 2008. Written by .

You can do a search in any search engine and find hundreds of websites with a list of the most common early signs of pregnancy… but how many of them list the lesser known or the strange? Well based on information provided by CTP members using the VEP Symptom Tracker, we have compiled the data of what symptoms are experienced and when, including the obscure and less talked about signs. These are statistics based on real women who tracked their very early signs and symptoms right from the day of conception!

Here is a list of symptoms that you may never have attributed to pregnancy! Now that it’s on a list (and supported by hundreds of women) you can! :)

Are you trying to conceive? Do you want to track your early signs and symptoms during the seemingly endless two week wait and find common symptoms with women who became pregnant? Then you absolutely must become a CTP member!

In august i had sorta like a period but it was really blood it was a Dark Brown discharge and it lasted for like maybe 3 days a wasnt even enough to fill up half a pad in total. Tjis happen like aroung august 9. Then in August 22 this happened again, first though this time it was light pink blood just for like half a day then it turned to dark brown thing again, and i didnt have cramps not once. Today is september 11 and i havent had my period or cramps or any sign that i will get my period. I am sexually active. Coukd this be pregnancy or is it just me wanting to be pregnant?

  6. I have my period about 3 weeks ago, and me and my boyfriend tried to conceive right after. Now (3 weeks later) I’m having back/leg pains, diarrhea, dizziness, I have to use the bathroom ALOT!, and I feel sick to my stomach. And 3 days ago I started spotting but its red like my period, its way lighter then my normal period and I’m not supposed to get my period for another weeks. Could I possibly be pregnant? Help!

  7.

Could i still be pregnant?

  8. Hi!
    About a week ago I thought I was getting my period which is usually heavy
    Every month but was very light and brownish in color and ended after three days. About half a week before I also thought I was getting my period because I had pink spotting which only lasted the one day. I’ve had a metallic taste in my mouth, light nausea for the past week and clammy hands on and off. I took a pregnancy test today, it came up negative but the lime was extremely faint and barely noticeable so I’m thinking it could have been an expired test? Is there a chance I could be pregnant or am I just over worrying myself?
