Why are period & pregnancy symptoms the damn same??


My husband and I just decided to start trying.

My last cycle was oct 4, and a week after my fertility window ended I spotted for two days. I wore a menstrual cup just in case but it wasn’t like a normal period.

If that was an actual period, I’m due for AF in three days.

I wake up with a flat tummy and then bam! Bloated like a MFer, and gassy af. 😷

Why are early pregnancy symptoms the damn same as period symptoms?! 🙄
