THIS IS SOMETHING I MOST DEFINITELY DON'T DO. BUT HERE'S MY STORY. PLEASE, SOME GREAT ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR ALMOST THREE YEARS, BEEN TOGETHER FOR 17 YEARS. WE HAVE A 16 YR OLD SON AND A 15 YR OLD DAUGHTER. WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET PREGNANT FOR SOME YEARS NOW. LAST YEAR OF APRIL 2012 I WAS TOLD THAT I HAD A FIBROID TUMOR. MONTHS AFTER I HAD A HSG DONE AND WAS TOLD THAT MY TUBES WERE BLOCKED. BUT OUR HOPES FOR HAVING ANOTHER NEVER STOPPED. I WAS TOLD I COULDN'T CONCEIVE AND THAT I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A HYSTERECTOMY. I COULD NOT PROCESS THAT THOUGHT. SO WE THOUGHT OF OUR OPTIONS. NONE OF WHICH WE WANTED TO DO OR HAD THE MONEY TO DO. ANYWAYS, I HAD RESEARCHED THAT YOU HAVE A 6 MONTH WINDOW AFTER HAVING THE DYE INJECTED. SO I HAD STARTED TAKING PRENATAL'S AND KEPT MY FINGERS CROSSED. JAN. 2013 ROLLED AROUND. THE MIDDLE OF JAN I HAD STARTED HAVING MORNING SICKNESS OUT THIS WORLD WHICH I HAD NEVER HAD WITH MY FIRST TWO. I COULDN'T KEEP ANYTHING DOWN. I HAD LOST WEIGHT AND ALL. THE BEGINNING OF FEB. I HAD WENT TO THE COMMUNITY CLINIC AND HAD A URINE TEST DONE. THE DR. SAID THAT IT WAS NEGATIVE BUT THERE WAS PROTEIN IN MY URINE. NOW CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG BUT PROTEIN IS SHOWN IN PREGNANT WOMEN AND DIABETICS RIGHT? WELL I KNEW IT WASN'T FROM DIABETES BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE IT. THE DR. TOLD ME IF I WAS STILL FEELING THE SAME WAY IN 9 DAYS TO COME BACK AND TEST. WELL I NEVER WENT BACK. BUT I HAD BEEN FEELING THE SAME WAY. NOT TO MENTION, I HAVE BEEN GETTING WHAT WOULD BE MY PERIODS BUT THEY HAVEN'T BEEN REGULAR SINCE JAN. MY PERIODS ARE IRREGULAR EVERY 21 DAYS. ANYWAYS, THE FLOW OF MY SO CALLED PERIOD HAS BEEN LATE, NO HEAVY FLOW, LIGHT IN COLOR, AND ONLY LAST ABOUT 2 OR 3 DAYS. MY IRREGULAR REGULAR CYCLES LAST ABOUT 5 TO 6 DAYS, ARE REALLY HEAVY AND CLOTTY, AND VERY DARK IN COLOR. I USUALLY DISCHARGE BEFORE MY CYCLES YOU KNOW OVULATE, BUT I HAVE NOT OVULATED SINCE JAN. I HAVE TAKEN A COUPLE OF HOME PT'S BUT ALL CAME BACK NEGATIVE. I AM NOW WHAT I THINK 7 MONTHS ALONG. I HAVE HAD ALL THE SYMPTOMS. I STILL HAVE MORNING SICKNESS. MY FAVORITE FOODS I THROW THAT UP, I DON'T CARE FOR SWEETS ANYMORE, I AM EXTREMELY MOODY, I CRY AT ALMOST ANYTHING, MY STOMACH IS STRETCHED OUT LIKE A 7 MONTH PREGNANT MOTHER TO BE BUT IT'S NOT AS HARD AS MY NIECES WHO ARE 6 MONTHS AND 8 MONTHS PREGNANT. MY BREAST HURT ALL TIME. MY NIPPLES STAY ERECT AND MY AREOLAS HAVE DARKENED, MY SINUSES ARE THROUGH THE ROOF, PLUS I HAVE BEEN FEELING MOVEMENT, LIKE OFF THE CHARTS MOVEMENT. I KNOW MY BODY AND I'M REALLY FED UP WITH ALL THAT I AM GOING THROUGH. I HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF MISCARRIAGES IN THE PAST DUE TO MY TUBES BEING BLOCKED.BUT I REALLY THINK WE GOT PREGNANT THIS TIME ALTHOUGH I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON SEPT. 11 FOR MY ANNUAL. I WILL KNOW SOMETHING THEN BUT I AM STRESSING. WHAT SAY YOU? AND PLEASE IF ANY OF YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS AND ENDED UP BEING PREGNANT PLEASE SHARE AND LET ME KNOW. THANK YOU.

Thank you for y'alls comments and concerns. I just wanted to say though that it's not a Phantom pregnancy. True I would love to have another baby but not so much so that I would have my body to think I'm pregnant. I have over 30 nieces/nephews including greats and some still having babies and I am content with helping raise them. I am blessed with what I have. And the whole going a whole 7 months without dr supervision if indeed that I am, well I have been taking care of myself plus I am a strong believer in God of healing and protection. All is well with whatever may be the issue. But I will keep you all updated when I go see my ob/gyn in two weeks. Thank you and God bless.

Theres a possibility that you could be pregnant. However it is also very possible that you want a baby so much that you have created a phantom pregnancy. In case it is a phantom pregnancy I would try to find someone to talk to so you can process your situation.

Some pregnant women do have protein in their urine. It is not an indication of pregnancy. It is an indication of pre-eclampsia, which strikes pregnant and non-pregnant people. It is very dangerous to a fetus, which is why you hear about when someone is pregnant; drs take it very seriously in pregnancy.

What did your dr recommend seven months ago? I'm sure it wasn't just, "oh, hey, there's protein in your urine, but no biggie." Pregnant or not, a dr is going to have some thoughts about next steps when there's protein in your urine.

I seriously doubt you're pregnant. Pregnancy tests look for hgh. If you don't test positive for that, you're not pregnant because hgh is REQUIRED for a baby's development.

Also, morning sickness very rarely persists through month 7 of a pregnancy.

It sounds like you have A LOT of problems on your hands, but is certainly does not sound like you're pregnant. Sorry.

I could be the tumor. Protein in your urine could also be an indication of an infection. You really should have gone back to the doctor earlier.

You need to go to your primary Dr. Asap. They will do an exam and blood work. If u have had multiple hcg test that came back neg then most likely you are not but waiting seven months with the issues you have going on is never a good idea.....

YES I KNOW THIS, I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF IT COULD BE THE TUMOR FOOLING MY BODY OR IF THEIR IS A POSSIBILITY THAT I COULD BE PREGNANT. I DON'T WANT SOMEONE TO SAY RIGHT OFF THAT "YES YOU ARE PREGNANT" BECAUSE THEY THINK IT'S WHAT I WANT TO HEAR BECAUSE IT'S NOT. I JUST DON'T WANT TO KEEP STRESSING. AND I AM GOING TO SEE A DOC..ON THE 11TH. JUST SEEKING SOME INSIGHT BEFORE THEN...IT'S BEEN 7 LONG MONTHS AND I'M TIRED OF THE UNKNOWN.

My input....SEE A DOC. AND yes that is what you are wanting people to tell you is that you are preg. You want people to tell you yes they had that experience and they were preg. What happens to other people may or may not happen to you....it also does not mean that makes you pregnant. You can't go by how others felt.
