Confusing Symptoms - plse help
My husband and I are trying to conceive. I had a blood test done on 10 January,(my last period ended on 29 December) and it was negative, but Im worried about these symptoms that Ive been experiencing, which I thought was pregnancy related. I have been going to the tiolet very frequently in the last month and a half, after every intake of liquid no matter how little, I have been experiencing light cramping and one or two bouts of extreme cramps in my abdominal area, I also have lower back pain. I am also constantly thirsty, no matter what I drink to quench my thirst it doesnt help, and I have been very tired and sleepy at work and sleeping more than usual. Is the urinating and cramping possibly related to a bladder infection? Because I am not experiencing any burning when I urinate. Or is it possible that I tested too early and that there might be a chance that I am pregnant?

Dear Jayd,
Yes your symptoms could be related to pregnancy - go for a blood test and also ask the dr to check your urine for infection - it does not always burn. Let him also check you for high blood sugar please?
