Loose stools, no cramping before menstruation date. Are these symptoms of pregnancy?

My period is due tomorrow, but I have not any cramping. I had a bit last week for part of a day, but that was it. I tried to conceive three days before I ovulated this month. The only odd thing is that I have been having VERY loose stools for a few days now. Tests are negative, but then again with my last the test didn t read positive until the day after my period was due. Are no cramping and loose stools a sign of early pregnancy? :) Thank you so much for your valuable time!

hi there, you seem to be very eager to be pregnant. Loose stools or no cramping is no evidence of pregnancy and the best thing to do would be to wait for a week if you do not get your periods then repeat the pregnacy test and if required get an ultrasound preferably transvaginal or a serum HCG levels done to confirm pregnacy, in the mean while take plenty of fluids, soft diet, probiotics and see if your loose stools stop and if reqired get a stool exam done for ova and cyst or any bacterial infection in case the symptoms continue for more than 2 days. Take care.
