For the past two weeks I have been bloated, cramping, tired, lower back pain, constipated/diahrea, gassy and I hwife bump my aroleas. I glossy got strep throat latest wewith about any warning.(I have heard you immune system is low when pregnant) and I have never had it before. I am due to start bwtn tomorrow and thurs. it just seems two weeks is long for PMS, but I have never bepregnat not before and just found out last month I had stage 2/3 endo aftehaving no laproscopy done. My husband and I have been ttc for 5 years and have done two round of afi with no success. We know now it was because off the endo. This is my firsperiod after the surgery, so it could be a lot of factors I guess. Anf comments or thoughts are greatly appreciated.thanks

Hello,

Welcome to the board.  I can certainly understand why you are concerned.  It does sound like you are experiencing quite a few early pregnancy symptoms.  Trouble is that a lot of those early pregnancy symptoms mimic PMS symptoms so it can be difficult to figure out what is going on.  Combine that with the fact that you've had recent surgery and it is really hard to know what is going on.  Have you thought about taking a home pregnancy test?  You should be in the right time frame to get a fairly accurate result and it might help put your mind at ease a bit.  Please let us know what you find out- keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I started spotting on Monday night and thought I ended by weds night. Two days is normal for the most part for me, but since they cleaned me out for  my surgery I thought it would be longer. Now I have bend spotting brownish discharge for the last two days. I still have the bumps one my areoles, and seemed bloated again last night. To the my husband asked if i was. I am guessing I ano tot, but thought the pumps would go away as well as the bloating.
