With my first pregnancy I lactated for 3 weeks before I tested positive on a home test. I conceived on October 3 and found out on October 29. I didn't think anything unusual because of my new medication and the fact that every doctor said it was too early to lactate anyway. Every woman is different. Now I am lactating and I have heavy tender swollen breast and know that again I am pregnant, but it is too early to test. I am very in tuned to my body. Talk to your doctor if you feel pregnant and keep a record of it. Let them know you are a different patient and you shouldn't be compared to another. Good luck!

I found out that I was pregnant at 3 months. I have no symptoms. I did have headaches until I was 5 months pregnant. Now, I have missed my menstrual for August. My last one was July. All I'm having is abdominal pains, tenderness in my breast, and constipation (dry stool).

I am 35 and this is my fifth pregnancy. I have two boys and two girls already. I have never ever experienced what I am going through. I am 10 weeks into it and I have been on a feeding tube for 3 weeks. I can't eat or sleep.

I went to my doctor because I had a knot in my left breast. They weren't sore, but one breast hurt and had that knot. I went in thinking I had breast cancer or something and found out I was pregnant. The doctor told me the knot came from my breast being so swollen. I didn't believe I was because the only time I could have conceived was 2 weeks before then. She told me pregnancy happens right away but the earliest the test can detect it is 2 weeks into pregnancy and symptoms can start then.
