My children are 16 months apart. My daughter is 21 months and my son is turning 4 months next week and I am wondering if I may be pregnant again. My son was born in May and my first period after that was the end of June and it was normal. Then I had another one the end of July and that was normal. However, the condom my husband and I used broke sometime around Aug. 12th and my period that was supposed to come at the end of August ended up being a week late. Also, it was irregular, having only lasted 2 days and after it was over I was still getting cramps and bloated. I've taken 3 pregnancy tests all at different times and they came back negative but I still feel funny. I've gained 3 pounds, I'm constantly fatigued, I'm overly irritable, and I still feel bloated even though my "period" ended days ago. I'm thinking about going to the doctors to get blood drawn to find out if i'm pregnant that way but i'm not sure how accurate that is. I know nothing is 100% accurate but i'm assuming it's in the high 90's at least, to put my mind at ease. My first 2 pregnancies pretty much were identical and the home pregnancy tests read positive almost immediately. Is it possible that i'm pregnant again and this one is just really different from my other two?
