Short version of the question: Is it possible to be pregnant but get a negative pregnancy test? Details below...
My baby boy is 7 months old. I have yet to get my period back, though I am nursing him (he's eating solids too) so I was assuming that was the reason.
the past few weeks/months I have been getting more and more pregnancy symptoms. . .My husband and I were not trying to get pregnant again, but I would not be upset if we were, obviously anything is possible.
First it was just being tired all the time, and it was getting worse and worse. even when my son would sleep well at night, and I did too, during the day I find myself utterly exhausted. that lasted about a month or so. maybe more or less, I am still more tired than I "should" normally be, even with a little one.
Next I started having to get up in the middle of the night to go pee again. last night I was up 3 times!!! I also had hot flashes yesterday which I never get. Normally I am most comfortable in the heat and hate wind on me, but I was enjoying the fan and ended up having to take a cold shower to cool down because I was so hot and sweaty.
I had lost my appetite shortly after having my first baby, and now it is back full force, including nausea if I don't eat every 2 hours (which I had with baby #1 also).
I'm thirsty all the time... and I feel like my belly has a little roundness to it. No one else would notice, but I am super skinny to begin with, so it's easy for me to notice every little change. I also have been having slight crampiness/ soreness on the sides of my belly the past few days- which i remember going through as my uterus stretched with baby #1.
crazy thing is, I feel something moving in there. which made me think i might be 3 months along or so. I felt my first early too because I'm so skinny to start with. At first I could just feel little movements insisde, but today I definately felt something with my hand pushing out at me, and then it went away...
Only problem... Negative pregnancy test. Not only today (june 1st) but also on May 9th I took one (because I was wondering about being so tired) and it was negative as well.
is it possible to be pregnant and keep getting negative tests? or am I not preggo? if I'm not what else could cause all this madness???
