just being cautious

Hello to anyone who reads this. I am new to this posting or just plain new to all this.

I have come to this site for the obvious, that being to find answers to some questions so I am very happy to find likeminded gals.

I am 42 and "wondering" if I could be pregnant. And as some of you before, I am afraid to assume anything for fear of disappointment. This would be my first.

I have been off birth control for some time, say 4 years. My cycle is quite regular, every 30 days with the exception of my last that being Feb 23 start and after 2 1/2 days completely stopped, nada. Previous to this date my BB hurt like crazy for two weeks, then the headaches came and are still here. I felt a sensation below my navel that, well felt simply like pulling (on a drawstring?) Weird to me. Yesterday in the morning I suddenly got a pinching/pressing feeling in my right, lower backside that made me feel nauseated off and on for about 2 hours. the nausea went away but the twinge remained into the evening. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? As I said earlier I really do not want to be talking myself into anything, again. A little help?

Sounds interesting! You will need almost 3 weeks before you test but in the meantime act PG and play it safe just in case!

Good luck to you!

Keep us posted!

Really don't know what to say about this.
