: I think I'm losing my mind. I'm 10dp5dt, first beta test is tomorrow. In the past week, I have experienced/am experiencing:
: - cramping
: - lower back pain
: - sore breasts
: - dizzy spells
: - nausea

: Is it actually possible to experience these signs of pregnancy so early (only one embie was transferred, so I know my chances of pregnancy are low)? Is it possible that I want to be pregnant so badly that my subconscious is causing all these symptoms? (If I'm not pregnant, I think I'll need to see a gynecologist, neurologist, and gastroenterologist for all these damn symptoms -- not to mention a good shrink!!!! LOL!)

Hi Liz,
Progesterone injections can mimic pregnancy symptoms. I don't believe these symptoms are in your head and I especially don't believe you're in need of ANY of the specialists you've mentioned .... it's just the drugs (or maybe more ... who knows) but it would be a bit early to experience ALL of these ... lower back pain and cramping being the exceptions.
Good luck tomorrow ... don't forget to post your results ... fingers crossed.
