Pregnancy symptoms but negative tests?

I'll keep it simple. I'm experiencing numerous pregnancy symptoms, such as;
-Nausea
-Dizziness
-Food cravings
-Fatigue
-Odd cramps, not often.
-Frequent, very frequent urination!
-Gassy
-(TMI) Sex has felt different like it did with first pregnancy.
-Breast milk drying up.

I have a nine month old who started baby food a few months ago. I haven't had my menstrual cycle since conceiving my first baby. I've taken about 5 tests within the past few weeks, all negative. I know I'm not crazy, but I swear I feel pregnant.

Basically I'm looking for advice or maybe similar situations with any of you moms.
Thank you!

The home pregnancy test, yes it would be possible to go a little way without it reading. A (collective hcg) blood test, it isn't possible. The doctor looks at how much is in the system and then redoes it in a few weeks to compare the two. If you're pregnant it goes up.

Each time you're pregnant your body is different. I've had one home test show up before I missed my period. Another didn't show up for about a week after my period. Then one I had to do blood testing because it wasn't showing up and I was pretty sure.

I'm sorry if i sounded rude but when there are 20 posts a day asking if someone is pregnant it gets very tedious. I was pointing out that a bunch of strangers can't know what is going on and it's always best to see your doctor.

I doubt your pregnant. More than half of the symptoms you listed happen when you're well into your pregnancy. Those tests are pretty accurate . I went thru the same thing when I was hoping to be pregnant and It turned out to be wishful thinking. Our periods get screwed up after having a baby for awhile so everything probably hasn't got back to normal yet. Hope this helps. Text me back if you want ill be up :)

I don't feel it's rude to tell someone double check with your doctor. Many times people get a negative with their home test but a blood test says differently. The HCG levels aren't high enough for a home test to read for some.

If nothing else there might be a medical problem going on. Her hormones could simply be off because of the last child, that might be why she hasn't yet had a period.

Yes, you can be pregnant without having your period after another child.

Thank you. I think I might have what's called a phantom pregnancy. I would love to be pregnant since I'd like to have kids somewhat close in age. It more than likely is wishful thinking. Going to take a test next weekend and the following after that. If still negative, I plan on seeing a doctor. Thank you for the friendly advice. I will keep updating with each result. :)

hi. I started light spotting yesterday. I always get my cycle on the 6th or 7th. usually my periods are very heavy the first three days then get light. last month I also started spotting a few days before my period and it was a very light period. i know my mom had her period while she was pregnant with me but she got a positive test result at 2 months. ive taken a dozen pregnancy tests and 2 urine tests at the doc and all came back negative but ive been feeling nauseous, my breasts are sore alot more often, frequent using the bathroom, really gassy. Ive also been having random sharp pains right below my belly button that shoots down like into the crouch area. I have a feeling that im pregnant and we've been trying for a while. but kinda thrown off by the tests. help anyone??? :/

Well, still negative.
Took a clear blue "pregnant" or "not pregnant" test.
Still trying to stay positive.

Also, I've read up that some women can go almost 20 weeks into pregnancy without getting a positive pregnancy test. Its very rare.
In my case, with my first pregnancy i got a positive pregnancy test at 4 weeks with my first LO.
So it would be odd if i wasn't getting a positive sooner.

I had all these similar symptoms but took me a lot of pregnancy tests for it too show I was about 6 weeks pregnant when it finally shown. Have you asked you doctor to do a test or sexual health clinic there tests are stronger ?

I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this, honestly.
I'm also very new to this site.
As I explained, I plan on seeing my doctor if the next two weekends hpt's come out negative.
Never meant to make anyone upset.
Just really was interested in others experiences.

I'm sure she's going to see her doc. It's called friendly advice and conversation. Isn't that what this site is all about?! Why do some ppl have to be so rude? They need to get a life. If you can't be helpful don't say anything! Jeez... It's called helpin' a sista out...

Go and see your doctor. We can't tell you what's going on with your body as we don't have access to all the tests!
