Hey guys,
So basically my partner and I have been trying for a baby for the last 9 months and In the time had high nausea, regular toilet trips, odd dreams, dizziness, the whole sha-bang. Then on the 31st of December 2013 we got results!?
The next day I got my period, got very concerned and then on the 3rd we got to the doctors only to get a urine test to come back as negative.
It is now the 8th of January and I've still got the symptoms.
Could I still be? or am I just losing my mind?

Most likely, you had a chemical pregnancy - which is a very early miscarriage. The combination of what looked like your period with a negative urine test very strongly suggests that you are not pregnant.
Of course, it is possible that you're still pregnant. False negatives happen, as does bleeding during first trimester. I've been pregnant six times and every one of my pregnancies started with what looked like a weird period. And despite using the most sensitive pee tests available I could never get a positive until late, after my scheduled period.
A blood test is a small thing, and like I said, frequent urination, dizziness and nausea are symptoms of other things too so it would be reasonable to go back to the doctor for some piece of mind.
On the other hand, if you are pregnant time will tell. You don't need to have a prenatal visit until 12 weeks.

Did you have a positive home pregnancy test on December 31st?
Frequent urination and dizziness are not usually the earliest pregnancy symptoms. The dizziness typically happens later when your blood pressure starts to drop - maybe around 9 weeks. The frequent urination tends to happen when your uterus expands enough to push on your bladder. I've heard that it can happen sooner for some women because of increased blood flow to the pelvis, but again, it's not generally a first symptom when your hCG levels are still just starting to climb.
That said, if you're experiencing nausea, frequent urination and dizziness you should have those symptoms investigated, and some general bloodwork, including a pregnancy test, would be reasonable.
