I FEEL pregnant. I am 4 days late and have had two negative home pregnancy tests. I have been feeling tired and queesy for over a week. At first I thought perhaps the mono I had in november creeping back up on me. Then I realized my period was late, I took a test it was negative.The next day I started having cramps so I thought ok it's on its way. Today I still have some cramps and am still queesy off and on. Took another test, negative. We have a 20 month old son, but I didn't not take a test with him until about 5.5 weeks along. With him I was also tired and crampy, bloated for over a week past my expected period I just kept thinking it was on its way because of the cramps, so I delayed taking a test.
Do you think it's possible that I am and it just didn't show up yet? A friend of mine said this happened to her so I am a little concerned

Hi Nikki,



Menopause at your age would be considered early menopause so although not impossible it is not likely. All you can really do is wait and keep testing or see your doctor for a blood test to confirm remembering that even the doctors tests could come back negative and so you would need to wait and keep testing yourself anyway. Honestly in my personal opinion I really wouldn't worry too much until you missed your second AF in a row. Even my Doctor said missing two AF's in a row is not normal and requires investigation. Good Luck!!!

I need help too!! I'm 42 years old. My period is always, always on time, 27 or 28 day cycle max. This month I am 5 days late with no sign of AF coming at all. I always have sore breasts for 5-7 days before and this month, nothing. Usually I have light spotting a couple days before and this month, nothing. Two weeks ago I had a stomach bug, or so I thought. Nauseated and diarrhea for 5 days in a row. Now I have no pregnancy symptoms and no PMS symptoms either. I've taken 3 tests, all negative. I have had mild cramping, that's about it. Here's the other thing, the last time we had sex, it was the first day of my period. I know that it's near impossible that I am pregnant, but I'm just not sure what's going on. I think I'm too young for menopause to be starting. What can be going on? Any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks so much in advance for your responses!!

Thanks for the reply. I took a test this morning and it was negative. So I'm going to wait a couple weeks until my next AF is supposed to come. If it doesn't then I'll go to the doctor. Patience is a virtue right?! ha

Hi Krista, The best time to test with a HPT is first thing in the morning as the pregnancy hormones are most potent then as it has not been diluted by drinking fluids all day. Most tests say that any time of the day is fine but you are best trying first thing in the morning. There are many many symptoms to being pregnant and being tvery tired all the time is one of those. Most women report symptoms such as spotting on implantation, white thick discharge, backache, headaches, nausea, vomittng, constipation or diahorrea, decreased libido or inreased libido, urinating frequently, tender breasts, darkened nipples and aerolas, breast heaviness, shortness of breath, weight gain, linea nigra appearing, some have colostrum leaking from their nipples and the list goes on and on as every pregnancy is different for each and every woman. Problem is that these symptoms can all amount to something else all together. So keep testing yourself and if you do not get your next AF definitely go to your doctor. Cheers

I'm so glad that I'm not alone. I have never been pregnant before but I swear something is different. It all started about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I started feeling really nauseous at about the same time of day (morning and early afternoon)...a couple of mornings I got so sick that I had to leave work. I thought it was the stomach flu but didn't have any other symptoms. Then I began getting headaches and continued nausea. Again I thought it was just a cold or something. Then I miss my period. 2 days after it was supposed to come I get very light pink on the toilet paper followed by 4 days of brown discharge. I have been on BC but haven't been as diligent as I should be at taking it. I took a test when I was 4 days late and it came back negative. I figured my period would come soon but it has now been 10 days and I've been so tired even though I've been getting a lot more sleep than normal. I have also had heartburn after eating a peppermint and then again when I ate pizza two days later. I have only had heartburn once about 4 years ago. I'm getting impatient because I keep getting negative tests. Is it still too early? Should I only take tests in the morning? Sorry for going off on a tangent...it's just so frustrating!

Went back to Doctor today who has scheduled a Ultrasound. I am very interested to see whats going on. He seemed to think we were talking cysts or fibroids. Could be as I have never had either of those before. He asked me quite a few questions and I felt confident he actually knew what he was doing. Oh and we are testing all kinds of hormones too. Will update once done. So I am about 9 weeks late for AF. Not on contraception but use protection have two young healthy children, no pregnancy or delivery complication at all and never just "missed" AF before without reason....

i had that problem. i had missed a period, neg test. so i went to the dr. had them do a test by blood and my test was positive. sometimes if we r not careful we can trick our bodies into thinking we r pregnate when we r not.

WOW I have read near all posts in this thread and it is interesting to see how many women go through this. Makes me feel not so alone in my madness... I have two beautiful children aged 3 and 5 yo and I am 36yo. With each child I found out I was pregnant the day I missed my period. Determining pregnancy for me was that clear cut and simple. However, I am now in the same position as the majority of women in this thread. The first day of my LM was 24 Sept 2012. Naturally I immediately broke out the HPT and it was negative. I was suprised. I have done 5 since and a Blood Test with the Doctor who also said negative or 2HCG only it was explained to me. So now I am thinking I am going crazy.. We are not fussed as to whether we are pregnant or not, we would be happy either way. But I have had no spotting at all, no period cramps just a lot of stretching aching and bubbling??? in my lower tummy, breasts aren't especially sore but I have had really bad lower back ache and I have never had that before and some cyatic issues also. So just don't know.. very frustrating... guess I will find out eventually. Will continue doing tests until either positive to pregnancy or menses.

I had two neg tests and one positive.. I was pregnant the whole time during the neg tests.. The positive test was the first test done! If its early in your pregnancy and you only do a urine test i can come back neg, an blood test can comeback neg in the first two weeks.

i was suppose to start my period Tuesday Nov. 20, 2012 and instead of my heavy period that i always have it was just light pink spotting everytime i wiped. that only lasted like three days. what does this mean. i was pregnant back in march and then miscarried in may. Is this just a weird period what? I'm so confused. My blood type is RH- and women who have this type of blood type have to get a shot when they find out they are pregnant, when the baby is born and the baby will get one. its suppose to change the babies blood type. So I'm freaking out because i need to know if i am or not so i can get another shot. i got one when i miscarried. i took home test and one showed a light line but the others said neg. what does this mean. someone please help me.

I was about 11 days late. At the beginning, i thought i felt all the symptoms of pregnancy. I tested but all came out -ve. Towards the end of day 10... I somehow felt the symptoms were gone... lo and behold, AF started at day 12. Sigh... i guess life goes on and we just have to try again.

That's the thing. I just moved out of state and I don't have health insurance so I can't just waltz into a doctor's office and ask for a test. Sure they'd give me a urine test but there's a good chance I have PCOS and my hcg hormone isn't strong enough to pick up on a urine test. The cost for a blood test or ultrasound I'm sure is excessively high. I'm scared if I am pregnant and don't get a progesterone supplement it could lead to a miscarriage.

You need to see your doctor home tests are not always accurate. It could also be a virus.

My last period was from 9-10-2012 to 9-13-2012. About 2 weeks ago I spotted for 4 days. I started spotting again 2 days ago and it stopped again. I had a hint of nausea the other day, I've felt queasy and light headed lately, I've had a headache for about 3 weeks now. I don't have much of an appetite, I'm having trouble sleeping and concentrating lately. I'm so exhausted at the moment, even though I slept 13 hours last night, I can barely type and I have to keep re-typing misspelled words. I've taken 4 hpt's and they've all come out negative. Any advice? I just want to know what's going on with me.

Have blood test at your doctors to be sure. Sometimes it too early for those home tests to work but they are quiet sensitive,

I have 2 boys. With my first the pregnancy test came back positive before my period was even late. With my second my period was over a week late. i had 4 negative tests. I just felt pregnant! I did the tests over a period of about 3 weeks too so it's not because I was testing too early! I just knew in my gut!

i had 7 home tests tell me i wasnt pregnant with my oldest kid come to find out i was i was almost 4 months when i found out i was pregnant so if u feel like u r i would see a doctor

[deleted account]

You might be then.

maybe wait a week or 2 to see if you get your period?



My situation is:

I would have conceived in August. I was 1.5wks late in Sept. and got it. And as of today (11.8.12) Im 4wks late for my October. ... And I still dont have a positive. ... My next step is the doctor. ... If I am pregnant, its my first, and I would be 14wks,2days along, today....



And Ive got people all over telling me I most likely am.



Best of luck and Best wishes!! :)

Yes, and it usually means that you just took the test too early and the hormone levels werent high enough for the test to pick up. With my first baby I took a test that was negative and then a week later the test was positive as I knew it would be. Take the test again or see your doctor for a blood test that is the most accurate.

@Clare Perks I felt my body change & felt pregnant since 5 weeks.. I am now 16 weeks.. My blood & urine tests did not show positive until week 11 or 12. All my tests kept coming back negative. Also, I had periods since July... for the past 3 months.. they were each 5 days late& weren't like real periods. They only lasted a few days each.. and keep in mind.. since I was 14 every period of mine was a 28-30 day cycle.. usually 28 days. And yes, I can feel my baby move :)



@Chrissy Rameika-Ortiz I agree!

But I just wish doctors would even acknowledge the fact that some women just have low hcg or low hormones in general, such as myself. Theyre supposed to be aware of these things!! I even had a transvaginal scan and they missed it. Sometimes theyre just complete idiots.

[deleted account]

Yes, that happened to me and I was pregnant. Also, remember that a high percentage of very early pregnancies do natually miscarry and if your body is in that process (often undetected), the pregnancy hormones could change before you start to bleed. Sometimes it is really too early to tell.

I went to the doctor after missing two periods and the stick test showed negative because I have low HCG. I had the same thing happen again and had spotting for the first three months with both of my children after I was 40. Fortunately I knew I was pregnant and an ultrasound showed it so the doctors were able to give me some hormones to insure that I would not miscarry and I have two beautiful boys. If you are unsure, ask your doctor to do a blood test or an ultrasound and treat your body as if you were pregnant until you know for sure. Good Luck.

I agree, sometimes those blood tests suck. When i was pregnant with my second son, I had 4 positive HPTs and the doc did a blood test and it was negative... Re took it a week later and it was positive. The HPT was more accurate this time.

Thanks Chrissy :), I will wait it out and see (SOOO DIFFICULT) , I am so moody(want to cry but cant, irritated and sensitive) and crampy as though I am going to get AF but nothing happens, yesterday I was sick to my stomache couldnt eat supper. I have been looking at possible causes for the late/missed AF and none of them really apply to me exept stress, I never missed an AF before. I Will keep you updated and let you know. Since I am having cramps and other symptoms like, clear discharge, dizzyness, slight headaches, I will have to see the GYN in a week or so if my AF does not start, just to make sure I am ok, otherwise. Will let you know what happened :)

Ronel I'm sorry to hear about the negative test. :( If you start feeling pregnant and you just know something is different, hold out hope! Like I mentioned my blood tests were negative too, the last one I took was back in may or june and it was negative but I'm about to pop anyway. Some people just arent lucky enough to get positive confirmation lol. I knew from the beginning that something was different and I followed my gut and here I am lol. I know its rare but it does happen more often than most people think. I started taking my prenatals and all that right away even though doctors thought I was nuts. Either way I hope youre able to figure it out soon, either by AF or a positive. :) Best of luck to you!
