Hello ladies,
I have a 2.5 year old and my husband and I have an easy going attitude about having another baby. This means that we do not use pretection of any kind. We are in the mindset of "if it happens, YAY, if not, ok no big deal".

I have had pregnancy symptoms since November 25 and my last period was November 10. I was supposed to have gotten my period on December 7 and it is December 14 and still nothing.

I have taken 5 pregnancy tests and they are all negative. One of those was at a Doctors Office on December 11.
With my son, I had no idea I was pregnant until 8 weeks gestation with no sign of pregnancy. I had irregular periods at the time because I stopped taking the Depo shot.

At the prsent time I have all sorts of weird symptoms!
1) lower back pain 2) sick feeling for most of the day 3)headaches 4) sore breasts 5) milky white discharge instead of a period 6) inability to sleep on my belly at night 7) fatige after doing the smallest of chores like dishes and laundry 8) lost taste for my favorite drink Coffee, (how I knew to take a test last time)

Im trying not to think about it very much but I cant come up with anothr explanation for my sysmptoms. My Doctor called me "baby crazy" and told me to stop stressing because thats what was inevitably causeing my late period. My life is nothing but stress and if stress was the culprit I would never get a period!

Can another mom please give me some advice on what to do? Has anyone else had this problem?
Please help!!-----the normally active House wife/ stay at home mom

@ Amy White, My blood test came back negative and a week following the appointment I still had not gotten my period. So the week before Christmas I took another test..........POSITIVE!! I took another a few days later and got the same result :) Im going to a different doctor, one that will listen and not call me "baby crazy".
@ Holly Smith, thank you I am 8 weeks pregnant with my second child :)

With our 2nd child, I took 2 at home test, 1 at the Drs office and blood work and they all came back negative. I knew I was, I was sick to my stomach and everything. The Dr gave me prilosec thinking it was heartburn/acid reflux. I then took a home test a few days later and it was positive.

Im due August 29 2013. He was a big baby and it took 2 hours of pushing before he made his appearance :) I was in labor for almost 3 full days, my water broke on my due date, we went to the hospital the next morning, and then on Wednesday April 7 at 8:59am my son was born :) It was nice to see him but also nice NOT to be pregnant or going through labor anymore!!!
Thank you, we hope everything goes well too with our newest edition :)
Are you currently pregnant? I couldnt tell from your earlier post if that was this time around or with your first.

I had my daughter at the end of August...i only had postpartum bleeding for a few weeks and got my period back right away. I have had a normal period for the last 6 months...my boyfriend and i have had sex only a few times using a condom..once the condom came off inside of me. My period is a few days late and i took a pregnancy test..both came back negative. is there still a possibility im pregnant? Or maybe my periods are just irregular now from the pregnancy??

It took us less time to concieve the second baby, we did not plan on trying until our son was at least 4. Our son will be 3 this April :) Im going to find out what the sex of this baby is and have a gender/parent celebration. We have all of our baby things from our son still so we really dont need much and the stuff that we do need are things we can get through the pregnancy. The reason for the party this time is to just celebrate the new life and to supply "the parents" with a kind of "baby survival kit". All we want to do this time is to try to get friends and family to help out a little and offer occasional babysitting, a bottle of wine for after birth, and some frozen meals for the days we are too tired to think about puting a meal together. Im sorry to hear about the delay in your attempt to ttc but I wish you and your partner the best of luck with trying to concieve your second baby. :)

My First was 8lbs 1.2oz and 21in long!! He was so big that the nurses and doctors were shocked I delivered him fairly easily :) Through my pregnancy with my first, it looked as if I was carrying twins!! My father in law had said to me "Brittany, when I think you cant get any bigger, you do!!" I was mortified but laughing at the same time!! I couldnt believe I had gotten that big!!!

If you do end up being pregnant CONGRATS!!
I know that there were times that I didn't have my period on time and the at home pregnancy test's came up negative...then a few days later I started.
I have started late do to stress as well.
