I know what it feels like to get those first pregnancy symptoms. Though, I only experienced a pregnancy up to 8 weeks (six years ago). I remember feeling strange down there and even though I am usually irregular, I just knew that I was pregnant and sure enough when I took a pregnancy test, my intuition was right. Not only that, but I was late which is usually the case, however my boobs, gave it away because they felt so tender and lactation (when I squeezed, weird i know) occurred. I remember feeling so nauseated but I never threw up and I couldn't really lay on my belly because it made the nausea worse. Also, I started to get grossed out by potatoes by the 6th week. I mean, I was just so good at catching on to this pregnancy rather so quickly. It's just crazy how we as women know our bodies so well. That being said, I'm now experiencing some concerns in regards to not trusting the pregnancy tests this time around. My last period was on march 16(lasted 5 days) and I had unprotected sex on march 29, april 4, and 13 (on the 13th, my partner actually came inside me). The problem isn't the fact that I haven't gotten my period, what concerns me is that I have been experiencing cramping for 2 weeks and I usually have cramps(extremely painful-some months) only on the first day of my period. This time it is so strange because i'm eating fine, i'm not stressed, my workout routine has been the same for the last year, and yet no period, cramps everyday, more discharge, extremely gassy, evening nausea, i get very thirsty, very hot at night, no mood swings, boobs are bigger and just this week they got a little tender which is not usual for me but i don't consider it significant. I took 2 pregnancy tests last week and they were both negative. Today I went to planned parenthood and i did the urine cup analysis thingy and the results were negative. The nurse felt that it was not necessary to check my blood for (hcG) so I guess I was a little disappointed. I was basically told that because everything looks normal and my symptoms and missing period say otherwise, I should get tested for abnormal prolactin levels of pituitary gland and thyroid so I went ahead and let them withdraw some blood for those 2 tests, and I should be getting my results within a week. Anyway, I just don't know how to feel about this. A part of me thinks that there is a possibility I could be pregnant because the cramping that I have been feeling these two past weeks is so strange, i just can't explain it... It comes and goes and honestly i got scared when i was told today that i'm not pregnant because the question is then: what do i have? those cramps are so strange. They are not crazy monster PMS 1st day cramps, instead they are mild and they come and go as if something is going on. Today, the cramping was ugly in the morning and it felt like a string was pulled inside. i just don't know what... even though i trusted my instinct the first time i was pregnant(ended with abrtn sadly), this time i don't want to because the fact that I did want to be pregnant makes me not trust myself since i'm aware that wanting a pregnancy can alter some womanly functions in our body. Though i must say that those strange cramps just popped out of nowhere.. it wasn't until a week of cramps that I thought, well, i wouldn't mind being pregnant.. Sorry I wrote so much, I just really want to get to the bottom of this and specially because I can't trust my intuition right now and the urine analysis. please share your stories, did you ever get negative tests and ended up pregnant, was it always the same in your other pregnancies, did you think you were pregnant, but only to find out it was a thyroid issue, etc... I really need some advice :\ thanks
