Ok so here's my story. I have been having pregnancy symptoms for about 3 weeks now. I have all of them, but worse than I had with my three children. Fatigue, nausea, frequent urination, strange cravings, feet and ankles swelling, breast tenderness, and changes in them (rounding out more, and dark and bigger nipples) increased hunger. You name it, I have it. I also have an enlarging abdomen. I have lost a lot of weight, and my belly was somewhat flat again, but now it is perfectly round, and I have been feeling movement. I have had three children, so I know the difference between gas, and a baby moving. The movements have actually gone from flutters to flips and bumps, or kicking as some people call it. But, I have taken 6 hpt's, 4 negative, and two positive with faint lines. I have been to have a blood test, it was negative, and I had that almost two weeks ago. I went to the clinic today, and they did a urine test, and it came out negative. I'm just confused and wondering if anyone else has had this same issue. I just know that I'm pregnant, but can't seem to get any prenatal care, because the tests at the doctors are coming out negativie. I stopped losing weight about 6 months ago after I got down to where I wanted to be, which was 125 pounds. I got down to a size 10, and now I can't even button a size 12. I have been having to wear stretchy pants because none of my blue jeans or anything that buttons fits me. I was on the pill, but when I had sex, I missed the pill two days after that. The last two months, I haven't really had a period. I just had spotting that lasted 4 days both times, and my periods are 6-7 days long and heavy until the last two days of them. I'm really starting to worry because I can't get to a doctor to be examined and to have prenatal care. I just need to know something. If anyone can help, please do! Thank you!

I had negative tests all the way along with my first daughter. Urine and blood negative luckily my doctor trusted me and looked for the heart beat and it was there.

Also a friend of mine had a phantom pregnancy all the symptoms i think even some positive urine tests and her body started to change but no baby.

Oh I think I'm further than 3 weeks along. I have just been having the symptoms for that long. Actually, it's been about 4 weeks now. I think I'm about 4 or 5 months, but I don't really know how far along I would be. I have another Doctor's appointment Wednesday, so I will ask for an ultrasound when I go.

No, amanda, I still don't know anything. I am starting to think I'm not pregnant, though because it seems like everything has gone away. Idk, though. I am living with my Granny right now, so it's hard to be able to go to the doctor. Plus, I have given up hope on the docs anyway. My fiance can't live there with me because she doesn't want him there, so we are having to go back and forth with each other because we only have one car. I'm in a sticky situation right now. Please just pray for me that I can get my own place soon. I'm having to apply for government housing because I can't afford regular rent anywhere. And I got evicted, so it's kinda hurting me on getting a place to live. Just pray for us if you would. Thanks. :)

That is American doctors for you ma'am. I'm hoping to find something out one day but until then I am just taking care of myself as best as possible.

I'm just surprised as my dr (in Aus) would most certainly fix one up for me to confirm it or disprove it. I'm finding it hard to understand the doctors in your cases. I would see the ultrasound as the best option to find out for sure, but obviously I'm not a dr lol

I know it's crazy but I haven't been afforded one so I haven't been able to get one yet. But on another note last night I actually started to bleed lightly for the first time in five months, but tonight there is nothing. So I am keeping my notes like always so when I do get to go to another doctor I will have plenty of info.

Have you found anything out LeAnn? I am still not having a period and went for my check up and still waiting on results. While I was at the health department she said I looked like I was ovulating but since I haven't had a period that is a little weird. She also said she "didn't feel anything bad" which was comforting but I am starting to worry that I have pcos. My health insurance kicks in this month so after that I am making an appointment. I am just starting to worry even more cause I need to be bleeding plus I would like to know what is going on in there. Can't wait to hear from you LeAnn, ready to hear an update lol

You are lucky that you didn't have any symptoms with your son. lol I have a 3 year old as well, and he's a handfull. lol Good luck to you as well, and keep us posted. I won't have the internet for a while, so I will get back as soon as I can. :)

Well, you energy levels get better when you are in the second trimester. They say the second trimester is the best, and I agree. lol I have a pap at the end of this month, so I hope to find something out then.

The one and only time that happened I was about 15, after that the longest it ever went was 3 months from stress, depression, and just life. It would always come back and things would carry on as normal. Then for almost two years it was normal and everything, until last year. But it came back for two months and then we started trying again and here I am 4 months late. There is a lady on an other message board that is 20 weeks, belly and all and the doctors won't do an ultra sound because she has no insurance. They have said many things and even called it a growth but showing no concern as to actually do anything. But I have asked her some other questions so I will pass along anything useful, lol. On an other note I just got a notice in the mail that it is that time to go get my psychical and pap so maybe I will learn something soon after all, lol. But I am so scared about them being mean and scaring me into things that I really don't want to do or hear. Blah...as always.

Wow. That's a long time to go without a period! I think you are one of those rare people that doesn't have the high levels of hcg. I think that's what is going on with me too. Idk. This would be your first pregnancy, right? This would actually be my 7th because I had 3 miscarriages before I got pregnant with my daughter. The longest I have ever gone without a period was 2 months, and that was when I was 12. It was during the first year of my periods. I haven't had a period since Feb. 1st. I've had spotting every time is was time for my period, though. Very light for me. I have had heavy periods every since I started getting them. And they used to be 8 days long. Have you been feeling any fluttters or anything? It kinda feels like gas, but different. I feel it all the time. The best bet for you, if you are not showing the levels is to get an u/s. If you can convince a doctor to do that, that is. I've been feeling ok, but I get worn out so easily. I am volunteering for camp for Girl Scouts and we had an all day training yesterday, and it just wore me out and I was so sleepy. Plus, I rode with my sister, and she had to do a lot of running afterwards, so I was out all day, then we went over to her house and had a fire and roasted hot dogs. I didn't really do much except sit around, and I was so tired still. I don't usually get that way. I'm still young, so I shouldn't be getting worn out like I'm an old woman. lol Let me know of any news if you have any, and I will do the same. :)

Still no period and going on 4 months....it has been years since I have gone this long without a period, like over 5 years. I am having a really hard time losing this extra weight I have gained and it is kinda scaring me. I feel fine though, no head aches or sickness really, No fevers, or anything other crazy. I know I keep saying I will go to the doctor but I am going to call at the end of the month. In my whole life the longest I have gone with out one is 6 months and I didn't have to take medicine or anything, but I can't wait that long lol. And I keep secretly hoping the blood test is wrong or I am just one of those rare, rare people that my level just doesn't spike until about now. Cause I have read about some of those stories. My gut is telling me no but my heart isn't ready to lose hope yet. I just wish we could start trying again since I haven't been ovulating. I hope that you are doing alright too, been thinking about you.

yeah maybe you could get one at the ER because it's not like they can't see your belly, you need to find out what is going on. to make sure everything is ok.
I miss my period cause it lets me know that my stuff is working at least somewhat normal. I've always had some problems but then things went normal and now this crap again...it sucks.

No I haven't. I don't know of any more that I can go to because of my insurance. I thought about going to the ER and try to get an u/s, but I don't know if it will work or not. I'm tired of being confused too. :( You miss your period? lol I don't like mine at all.

Well, it doesn't make any sense does it? I'm going crazy too. I'm glad you are feeling better. It's funny, though, I was in the bath a while ago, and was going to write you and see how things were going, came in here and checked my email, and you had written me. lol I'm doing good, but still no positive tests. I still feel pregnant, though. And my belly and uterus continue to grow...

Well, I haven't tested since the last time I told you, but I think I will in the morning just to see what I get. I am 16 weeks now, if indeed pregnant. I found my uterus the other day, and measured it, and it was right on target. lol I'm tired of being confused too. My belly still grows, and I have gained 10 pounds now. But the belly looks like more than 10 pounds of gained weight, and I haven't gotten bigger anywhere else but there. So idk. Hopefully I can find something out soon...

Still haven't been able to do my blood test yet but hopefully this weekend I will be able too. So since that was said I still haven't started, at ten weeks late now, the cramps and pressure are still there and I stepped on our scale today just for kicks and it did not give me the number I wanted to see. We need a new one so I am going with that but if it is right that was crazy, yeah I haven't been the best but nothing that like at all. I'm just so confused and ready to not be anymore.

Not usually or that I can think of at this moment, but when it first started I do remember thinking Wow this is strange. Thinking back I would usually only be bloated for like a day or two and then nature would take it's course and be on it's way. So I have no clue, I'm going to freak with whatever the answer is on the blood test. I just want to know but I am going on a trip for a few days so the escape will be welcomed. But hopefully I will have the blood test back sunday morning or tomorrow night.

Hmmm. Have you ever been bloated that long before? If not, then I would think it's from being pregnant. It's probably your expanding uterus. I have gained 7 pounds, but my belly got bigger before I gained it. And like I said, it gets bigger all the time. And I'm hungry all the time. With the way I eat here lately I should have gained about 20 pounds. lol

i've been feeling bloated for weeks now, yes i gained like five pounds too i can not seem to get back down but i have lost two pounds of it if i behave real good lol i've gotten an appetite back which has been gone with being nauseous and my upset tummy lately which rocks but not helping either. but i feel like i should be starting but these cramps don't feel right like a normal period.

Oh yes it can. I have never gotten bloated before my period, only when I'm pregnant. And cramps are a pain! I get them in a different spot than most people, and that hurts bad. But I do get the stretching pains. And my belly itches a lot too.

yeah they will just do that too but I have a way to get a blood test done so I am going to do that but if that does come back positive and i am still getting negative urine i will have to make them which might be hard but i will try. but i am going to be so stumped if my blood test comes back negative again.

LeAnn - posted on 05/18/2012

Well, maybe that's why the pg test isn't positive. The urine has to be concentrated enough to detect the hormone. That's why it's best to test in the morning. And if you are getting up at night, then you are emptying your bladder, therefore, when you get up it's not concentrated enough. Maybe that's the problem. I can tell you right now, though, that the Health Department will do a urine test on you. I'm not sure, but they may do a blood test. I just know I have had to go there to get medicaid before, and they did a urine test to confirm it. Yours might be different though.

Amanda - posted on 05/18/2012

I tried the ovulation last time when we were trying last time but they always came out negative because my urine was never concentrated enough, see I only drink water. I sometimes will drink a cup of coffee but other than water usually it's only milk. So even if I tested in the morning for ovulation it was usually clear cause I always go to the bathroom at night at least twice if I keep my water intake right. But I will totally keep that in mind cause cheap is good on the wallet. I have two more tests so that I can do one each week, so next week we will see lol. But if I still haven't started by June I am calling the health department cause I still have a wait on my new health insurance from work. Oh the waiting is just killer, lol.

Well, I tested last night because I was curious, still negative. I got some of those tests you can buy online. I got 25 of them for $1.95 on Amazon. Have you ever used the ovulation tests? They have those on there too really cheap. You might want to look into it if you want to go that rout. I used some when I was first trying to concieve years ago, and they work pretty good. I only used them because I had had such irregular periods that it was hard to tell when I was ovulating. Then you would know for sure if you are pregnant because you don't ovulate when you are pregnant. But I think you are based on the symptoms you have told me. Or maybe you can get a doc to do an ultrasound on you.

I haven't been diagnosed with it, but the last time i went to the doctor they wanted to talk about it. So maybe, but I did test again this morning and it was negative. I just wish my period would go a head and start seeing as I keep getting negative hpt. I'm going to try to get an other blood test just to check my levels again but I am guessing it will come back negative too. Blah, this is just to depressing... But maybe next time if my period ever comes back. Cause I am worried that I am ovulating but not having a period which sucks cause since my period has been gone we haven't been trying in hopes that i was pregnant.

I don't think it's anything like that, but I was just reading somewhere else about how if you have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), that it can cause false negatives. I think maybe that is what is going on with me. I was diagnosed with it about 10 years ago, right before I got pregnant with my daughter. Do you have it? If you do, maybe that's why you get negative tests.

yeah that is crazy, i am going to test tomorrow morning if i can. today i have been hungry and heart burn is bad but controllable. i have pressure in my lower abdomen, light back pain, and the gas is crazy lol but other than that i am great. i keep thinking these are signs my period might show up but still nothing other than a clear discharge. i just wish both of us to walk into a doctor's office and get an ultrasound so this craziness would end.

Yeah, I test at least 2 times a week. Still negatives. It's been a few days since I tested, though. I think I am 15 weeks along as of yesterday. But idk. with the way I'm feeling movement, I might be further along than that. I'm just going based on the last regular period that I had. I am constantly hungry. Even when the morning sickness was bad, I was still starving. lol I can eat two snacks after supper, and still be starving when I go to bed and it's like I haven't eaten all day. I eat three meals a day too. Used to I would only eat lunch and supper and be ok. No snacks or anything. So something's going on...

I'm good, but getting headaches a LOT. And I can't go to sleep or stay asleep at night. It's really making me tired during the day. Other than that, I've been feeling pretty good. The morning sickness is pretty much gone, except for certain smells making me nausiated. lol I got some salami for my son the other day, and the smell of it almost made me throw up. That has never made me nausiated before. And my belly continues to get bigger. I really want to know something!
