Wishful Thinking?

My S/O and I have been trying to conceive, and this is the first month we have decided to start using any "tools" to help us. I'm using progesterone cream right now, as I am estrogen dominate. Things have been going pretty well, although I have found myself to be very irritable lately, but I think it may have to do with work, as this has been a stressful time for me. Yesterday, I had acid reflux (which could be anything, as I do get that from time to time), but my belly button also felt really itchy, which I thought was weird. Then, last night, I had dry mouth, and just couldn't seem to quench my thirst, no matter what I drank (again, could be anything, I figure), but then I woke up in the middle of the night last night, with really bad cramps. I felt as though my period was going to start, but I'm not due until around the 13th, which is a week and a half away. Could it be the cream that's making me feel this way, or could I actually be pregnant? Is it too soon to be feeling symptoms such as this?

Those could be side effects from the progesterone, I think it would be too early to be having any pregnancy symptoms. Did you have good ovulation signs this month?

hello!! i dont want to rain on your parade but i think those are probably side effects from the cream. with both my kids, i didnt have any symptoms until right before my period was due to start. about a week before i found out i was pregnant with #1, we went out for chinese food and i was sitting in the resterant sick to my stomach. i love chinese food but that day it was making me nauseous. that was saturday...i found out i was pregnant that friday. with my 2nd, i was crabby, irritable, emotional(i broke down in tears at work cuz a manager told me i had to wait to take my break. granted he was a jerk about it but seriously i was crying about it!!)...it dawned on me that i might be pregnant wheni started cleaning to showcase windows and complained to my coworker that my boobs really hurt. i took a test the next day!! LOL you might be pregnant, you might have a few symptoms already-it IS possible-but i dont think what youre feeling is pregnancy related already. good luck!!!
