In some cases, this may mean that you experience symptoms before your missed period. It may be confusing, as some symptoms, like headache and bloating, are those you may experience when you're not pregnant.

The conversation went something like this:"I'd like a candy bar and a back rub," she said to kick things off."A candy bar and a back rub? She was laying on the floor doing some light yoga to stretch out her back at the time, and looked up at me with a grin that I just couldn't say no to."You're crazy. I'm hungry," she said playfully."I'll go get you a candy bar," I admitted in a tone slightly frosted with defeat. As I neared the end of my work I realized that she hadn't said anything in a few minutes.
A few minor sniffles perforated the silence of a commercial break on TV and quickly caught my attention."Are you crying? As soon as she began to respond the waterworks let loose."I'm just really uncomfortable and I feel bad asking you to do all these things..."She continued down her relatively short list of "why I'm crying" in a tone that sounded like an orgy of critically wounded geese, so I didn't pick up a lot of the finer points. "My back hurts and I'm sorry that I’m hormonal" were the captions of her pregnancy-fueled, hormonally catalyzed mini-melt down.
" I asked, somewhat disbelieving."No." And she wasn't. I sat down next to her and told her that it was okay and I didn’t mind her requests at all, she just has to work with me a little sometimes. So I rubbed her back for a little while and eased her back pain woes.
I said that I can only imagine all the changes that she’s going through and I’d do anything I could to help her. The candy bar craving passed on its own at some point during the massage. Don’t make a pregnant woman feel worse than she already does. Putting up with her craziness is the male analogy of experiencing hormones directly, it’s just something you have to go trough as part of pregnancy. A pregnant woman may not even be aware she’s acting strange.
US: What would you say to Iggy if you could say anything to her right now? I do wish her that kind of success and hope that she can get through this difficult time and she and Nick can move forward from this. Basketball is what puts food on two people’s plates that he’s taking care of. I would want to let her know that she deserves the world.
