This is not our first baby but this one has proven to be a challenge to conceive. We miscarried at 10.5 weeks Nov 1, chemical pregnancy Nov 30th. I was 5 days late this cycle, negative hpts, "period" did show but has been different and light and almost done after only 4 days which isn't normal for me. I just feel pregnant. My breasts have gone up 2 cup sizes and aren't getting smaller (for starters, that only happens to me when I have been pregnant, it's not a PMS symptom for me AND you would think by now they would be returning to normal as AF is pretty well done) I am exhausted, eyes burning kind of tired. Peeing more than normal and I look more pregnant at the end of the day than my friend who is 23 weeks. (this is baby #6 for us - we lost #5 - so bloating this early is normal) I've done my math and IF implantation didn't occur until the max 12 days I am still within the window of hcg levels being too low to stop AF completely and register on an HPT. Am I nuts? Has anyone else experienced anything like this and found out they were pregnant? I know people argue pregnant symptoms vs pms are very similar but for me there is quite a difference. Anything, just please be gentle :)

I went and had blood work done and it's negative. My doctor is wonderful and said we had to do both bloods and an ultrasound. So, I have an ultrasound for next Thursday the 22nd and I am terrified it's going to show no baby. I am very aware how crazy it sounds that I still think there is a chance I am pregnant but these symptoms are so real. Doc doesn't think it's in my head but could be hormones acting up from the stress over the last few months. I wish I wasn't so scared. We want this baby so bad....I know, it's greedy as we already have four healthy children....but there was a fifth and I just feel there should be a fifth so it's hard to think I'm empty.....especially with how I feel and how my body is changing.

Yes, AF is such a complex hormonal process. And can yield false negative HCG tests as well. It would be good for you to go see your doctor. If you can have an ultrasound, it may clear things up.

I think you have to wait and see or go to a doctor to diagnose your symptoms. We don't know your body, your history. You do. Could be you're trying too hard, are stressed over everything that's happened, and/or have false pregnancy. Get more rest, exercise a little more, make sure you're healthy - whether or not you're pregnant.
