Could I be pregnant?
Hi,

We've been trying for a baby for 2 and a half years. I was 2 days late with my period (am usually exactly 28 days apart) this month. However, did not get too excited before I knew the facts. Anyway, the flow was the same as every month, boobs swell up and are sensitive, normal procedure. However, during my periods, my boobs go back to normal size and the sensitivity disappears.

But, my period finished yesterday and my boobs are swelling again and are very sensitive and you can see the veins a mile away.

I don't want to run out and do a home pregnancy test, I hate disappointment. All I would like to know is, what are the chances of being pregnant if I had my usual procedures this month, with my period?

Very unlikely that you are pregnant. Sometimes anxiety about falling pregnant can give rise to symptoms such as you are experiencing.
