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

yup!!

knew i was pg before i missed my cycle, was prolly about 1- 1 1/2 weeks along. DH refused to believe me when i kept telling him i felt like i was pg and tested neg 2 mos in a row.

I was 13 weeks along before DH would believe due to test @ gyn/ob.

Well I guess the test was correct becauase my cycle started late last night. I just don't get it. It only took 2 months with my daughter. I have gotten my physical and looked over my files at the doctors office and he says everything is fine. We have been trying for 7 months now. I am about to say forget it cause the stress is annoying. My husband looks disappointed each month so I am wondering if something is wrong with his sperm or something. My OBGYN is making me a appointment to speak to a fertility specialists next week. He says it takes couples my age,30, up to a yr TTC. So what do you guys think?

Well my period is usually like clock work, but not I am 3 days late. I took a HPT and the first line was kind of faint then I got a single solid line (negative test). I am wondering what that means. Am I or am I not? hmmm What do you think? I have also been taking geritol. I was told that it builds your blood and helps you to conceive.

I know how you feel, I am 6 days late (never late more than a day), I am dizzy, I have an empty feeling on my stomach, cramps as though my period is about to start(started when I was about 2 days late). I am moody like never before! My poor DH. My toddler is acting up (I heard somewhere that they know something! Any way, I tested last night had a faint positive line, but dissapeared soon after it appeard (maybe 2 / 3 minutes after). It is a 30 seconds - 5 minute max test. So I think its a evaporation line. This morning tested Negative. VERY bloated, feels like my lower absomen is tight and looks like Im 4mnts preggers. Is it possible that the HCG is not high enough for the test to pick it up and that I could be pregnant! We werent really trying, but we werent realy NOT trying either. Would be great if I was! Any thoughts?

Yes I took a test with my last baby and I got a line and a half since that's not a normal test result and I wasn't sure if it was positive or negative I took another test which came out negative. The next day I took 3 more tests and all were positive.

hey everyone, I posted on here earlier this year about how all my (numerous) hpts and blood tests were negative but I still felt pregnant, no periods, all symptoms, etc. I saw several doctors who were terribly rude to me and acted like I was crazy and tried giving me psychological advice (wanted to hit that one) but I'm here to update really quick since more than a few people on this and another site thought I was crazy and attention starved. According to all the due date calculators I've used (which is a LOT) I'm due october 30, and god do I look it. I still feel butterflies, flips, stretches, rib and kidney shots, lol. I have a perfect, round, big bump that changes all sorts of funky shapes and I've started Braxton Hicks this month. Needless to say I gave up on doctors and tests and I'm playing the waiting game. I'll stop in again to update later on but I just want to say that what they say about everyone being different is true. there are so many mysteries in life and the human body and we really dont know a whole lot. I knew from the beginning that something was different and it pays off to trust your instincts. But I'll stop in at the end of the month again. Just thought I'd update and maybe give someone a little hope :) We cant all be crazy lol

Yes this happened to me and I waited a week later and it showed up pos+. HcG levels can be different through different times of the day and those tests CAN be weak if your urine is too diluted. Take the test in the morning, then wait and see a few days later. Usually a POS+ test is accurate but a NEG test doesn't completely rule it out.

hi, i am having very similiar problems. i want to note b/c of a previous asked question. with my first pregnancy i took a home pt and found out at 3 weeks i was pregnant. it came up positive right away so sometimes it can show up early on but don't always trust a negative result. trust your body and your insticts.

my son is now 3 years old and i had an iud placed about 4 months ago. i feel pregnant and i know i am pregnant i know my body, if im not then somethings seriously wrong. anyway i have taken 4 at home test and gotten negative results on all of them. but i have every symptom known to man and my belly looks like im 3-4 months pregnant its hard and i can feel something move.. kinda freaky. i have read of other women getting pregnant with mirena still in place and having false negatives due to the hormones in mirena. i go tomorrow to my obgyn and hopefully i will find out for sure. nothing less than an ultrasound with an empty uterus will convince me im not prego so wish me luck and will keep you all posted. i just wanted you all to know im going through the same thing and have heard too many stories of it happening to other women not to trust my own instincts. i wish you all the best of luck!

It's definitely possible. It tests a hormone level that becomes detectable by the test when pregnant. I took a test and it told me positive at 3.5 weeks. My hormone just happened to be at the right level early on. If you happen to not have your levels go up right away, then it probably won't show yet. Its not uncommon, and its not always a faulty test. Peoples bodies just work differently.

Hi Jessie, I went through the exact same thing as you are. After my third child was via c-section , my partner and I had relations 4 week after she was born and we were both home. My partner knew I was pregnant before we had confirmation from our home pregnancy test. What through me off was I was still having my regular periods. I took test after test, to the point it was 1 test every fortnight, each result was coming up negative, and that's the same as the doctors tests. I was 4mths by the time any test I took could give me a positive result. In saying all of this though, every woman is different. Get a reliable confirmation through blood, I couldn't get one because my doctor said there was no point as the test came up negative. Push to get it done, the sooner you know, the more piece I of mind you will have.

just becuse you ahve a negative test dose not mean you are not pergnet. you can not be far enough along to tell or you can be to far along that will also give you a negative test . this happend to both of my kids. I would go see the doctor and get a blood test done that would be the best results.

There is always a possibility that you could be pregnant. I know a few people that didn't get a positive home pregnancy test until they were almost 10 weeks along. If haven't started in the next few weeks go to your doctor for a blood test.

I just want to ask, cause I'm eagerly wanted to have a baby already, I have sex with my partner september 6, september 10 and 11. my last period started august 24, 2012. Would that be possible for me to get pregnant already? I don't have a problem on my cycle, cause I'm regular. I and my partner just decided to create a baby already. I'm on My 26 days now. can I already buy a pregnancy test for me to try if it is positive? I'm just really excited, actually this past few days I always feel sleepy. I don't know if it is an early sign already. Please Help :)

hi, im 18 years old im not very good at calculating my period dates bt i believe i am 8 days late. I had uprotected sex last month using the pull out method on the 5th or the 6th and i havent seen my period since then wich was anywhere between 41-43 days ago. The week before last while i was at school i was feeling a major amount of fatigue i had to leave school early 3days in a row and each day i slept for atleast 8hours and when i woke up i was still extremely exhausted. Last week i felt bloated and couldnt even fit into my fat jeans :( . when i was in the shower last week i ran the bar of soap over my boobs and they were really soar. they also feel that way when i poke them or slightly push them in. I have been having a cramp in my left side for the last few hours and its almost like a pulling feeling but its very similar to a period cramp but there is no bleeding or spotting . Also 2days ago while i was in the mall with my freind i sipped her soda and after a few minutes of walking i felt dizzy and the overwhelming urge to double over and vomit but nothing came up. So far i have taken 2 at home prregnancy tests but both came up negative. im really confused about what to do or whats going on with my body. I have one left but im not sure when i should take it ? any opinions or sugestions would really be appreciated .. thankyou for reading:)

I got pregnant on Yaz. Sooo....yeah, don't think you're safe just because you're on the pill. No birth control method is 100% effective. I never skipped a pill and took it the same time every day and still have an almost 6 year old walking around now. :-)

so girls, i need some advice. i have been on the pill 3 months now, and am 9 days late, with 1 negative pregnancy test taken 2 days ago. let me also say that me and my bf still also use condoms, considering we already have had 3 darlings together and both want to ensure there are no more ( i'm 23 he's 34). but, our downfall is that untill the point gets... dangerous, we do without the condom until the very, very end. i have heard before that precum can get a girl pregnant but not sure if its a fact or not. plus, combined with the birth control... i'm doubting the likely hood of it. but still, 9 days late has me concerned!!! is it normal to still be so late 3 months into starting pills? any recomendations/ ideas?

Hello everyone :)



I got back my period after my baby's birth on June 8th (13 months after giving birth); Then, it came again on July 8th sharp! And that was it....we are not trying, but I have baby fever! lol

I'm like 30 days late, had a lot of discharge around the day my period should have come, no bleeding at all, I've taken countless HPTs, all negative except for one that was positive for a minute, then it vanished....took one blood test, it was negative too.....could I still be pregnant? I have many symptoms, but I don't want to get my hopes up....please help? Has it happened to anyone else? I've read that some women don't get positive until they are around week 9-12! Could that be my case? How long should I wait until going to my doc?

Thank you!! :)

Hi I was wondering if anybody can help? I have missed my period by 5 days now, I had cramping 2 days before my period was due and a day after it was due, then all of a sudden the cramps have stopped, I don't THINK I have any pregnancy signs, I have taken 2 pregnancy tests, 1 on the second day of my missed period and one this morning and both negative, and I am never late on my periods! Please help :-( xxx

For what its worth (for the women who may read this) I have had a negative test and actually been pregnant. 6 years ago I had terrible pain in my left side and went to the doctor. They did a urine test that said I wasn't pregnant but when they did blood work it came back positive for pregnancy. So yes, urine tests can be wrong.



I just had my second son in March of this year and I took a HPT 2 days before my period was due and had a very very light positive. I thought it was negative at first then the longer I stared the darker the second line became.



If you think you are pregnant then act like you are even if a HPT says negative. Take your prenatals and don't drink or smoke. Rest and take care of your body as if you were making a baby. Your body will let you know soon enough if you are pregnant or not.

With both of my sons the test said negative for the first 4 weeks. I knew because of the nausea, bloating, the freakishly strong aversion to smells, sleeping on my stomach felt weird, and i would get super dizzy randomly then get sick. Wait 2 more weeks then take another. If it's too early the tests will keep showing a false negative. The other option is to make a drs appointment and have blood drawn to test.

I'm with you there Chrissy, i still don't know anything but i am going to the doctor next week finally. Some days I feel pregnant and then others I don't and I actually feel fine so I have no idea what is going on.... I just hope it's nothing bad and crazy like I fear. But fingers crossed for us both.

I posted on here a while ago and I just stopped in to update... I still technically dont know if I'm pregnant, I stopped spending money on tests about 1 1/2 months ago lol... but I have a huge hard belly, still no period, and I feel movement. Nothing ninja-like, just little somersaults, butterflies, some tapping and now what feels like stretching (it will be a dull uncomfortable light pain inside my ribs, lower on my abdomen, kidneys, anywhere, and only lasts for a couple seconds if that.) So i assume thats a baby moving around. My belly is really big, I look like I should for 7 1/2 months (I could probably pass as 8 months lol). Supposedly I would be due around Halloween, so I'll just know to expect something happening within two weeks before and after that date. I still have all my pregnancy symptoms, breasts are bigger and veins are popping out everywhere, heartburn, headaches, cravings, you name it. I'm still sure I am pregnant but of course part of my brain is still trying to be reserved. So we'll see. :)

I am 7 weeks today and have just had my first antenatal booking appointment. Whilst there I mentioned that my last period which was on 5th July was quite light and only lasted 2/3 days. Because of this the midwife has said I may actually be 11 weeks not 7 and is sending me for a scan next week.

The one on the 5th was 5 days late and didn't last my usual 4/5 days but I did 4 pregnancy tests within those 5 late days and they were all negative.

Is it possible I may have already been pregnant?



Has anybody else experienced this?

I took a preg test on sunday august 5th (the day my gurly was suppose to come) and it was negative. Sure enough, a week later i took another test, and it was positive. I was in denial that I was pregnant because I miscarried last year around this time, and had been trying since with no luck. I was waiting for my gurly to come and go, so I can start the ovulation kit my doctor suggested I try. We are very happy, and blessed for this pregnancy. We are now 7 weeks along (was about the same time I miscarried last year). I am trying to eat healthy and walk as much as I can. I have faith this will carry all the way through. Wish us luck! P.S since my miscarriage was so hard on us and our family, we are keeping this a secret, until it is safe to spread the news! Can't wait for this wonderful experience. We are due in April (god willing).

Jessie,

I'm going through the same thing but i had two faint postives at the house but then at the doctors both came up negtive.. But i know with my son who is now 4 years old i was 2 1/2 months along before any test popped postive for me. Don't give up if you feel like your pregnant then there is a good chance you are. Good Luck
