I am just wandering if anyone else has experienced what I am going through right now. I am a mother of three, and was planning to get married next month, and getting pregnant later this summer. But I think maybe my wish for another child has came earlier than I expected. I have been on the pill, so I wasn't really trying to get pregnant. But I did forget to take my pill two days in a row, right after having sex. But about a week ago, I noticed that I was doing some of the same things that I did when I was pregnant with my other three children. It started off with drinking coffee every day 3 or 4 times a day. I am not really a coffee drinker. I have to really be in the mood for it. But, for some reason, when I am newly pregnant, I will crave it. Then I got to thinking about it, and my last period was only about 4 days, and very light. I also had this happen againg this month. Usually it lasts for 6 or seven days, and heavy until the last two days of it. Then, starting about a week ago, I have been having to pee a lot, which normally, I pee 3 to 4 times a day. But I have been going to the bathroom every hour. Also, I have had tender breasts, an enlarging abdomen, fatigue, cravings, extreme irratability, and I am always hungry, but nausiated at the same time. Even certain foods make me nausiated just from the way they smell. Usually, I only eat two times a day, and I don't even get hungry until I'm up for a few hours. But I have been waking up hungry. Also, after I eat something, I am either still hungry, or hungry within 30 mins. to an hour after eating a meal. That is not like me at all. I have recently lost 82 pounds, and my stomach had shrunk, so I couldn't eat much at all. Another thing is, I have been ready to go to bed at 8:00 at night, when normally, I don't go to bed until 1 or 2 in the morning. I have done four hpt's and the first two were neg, and the other two were positive, but with a faint line. I went to the Dr. last Friday and had a blood test done, and it came back negative. The third test was positive after I had the blood test done. I really feel like I am pregnant. After having three children, I know what my body feels like. I have even felt flutters. My breasts have even changed. They have rounded out more and my nipples look like they are ready for breastfeeding. (I breastfed my 3 children). They have also gotten darker and bigger. I am experiencing all the things I have before, so I'm pretty sure that I am. But it is hard to tell without knowing for sure from the doc that I am. My belly even looks like I am pregnant. it is perfectly round. And my fiance took pics of it 5 days ago, and we have noticed that it has gotten bigger since then. After I lost wieght, by belly went away except for the skin that was hanging from being so big and losing wieght. I was just wandering if anyone had any advice for me. I am very confused because the hpt with my children always came up positive as soon as I took it. Can anyone let me know what they think about all of this? And I have not gained any weight, but I never do when I am newly pregnant. I usually lose a few pounds. So, I have an expanding belly without any weight gain. I'm just so confused... .
