unsure about possible pregnancy?

[deleted account] ( 5 moms have responded )

I've been wanting to get pregnant for a while but it just never seems to be the right time. For the past several weeks i have experianced tieredness, nausea, vomiting stomach pains, frequent urination, tender and larger breasts, swelling feet and ankles,heatburn, basal temp of 98.3 for over a week, more visible veins so on and so forth the list could go on for ever. I wonder if I could be but i just have a hard time actually believing it because i don't know if i'm bringing all these symptoms to pregnancy because it is something I want or if theres something else going on, It's also not time yet for my next period so i'm not sure if it's to early to test...uuhhgg I don't know any suggestions.

For now, just take care of yourself and avoid alcohol and such just in case. You could just have a virus. Take a test every week until you get your period or you get a positive, whichever comes first. Here's hoping for you!

If your over a week late for your period it won't be too early to test BUT the only way to be 100% sure is to go to your dr and get a blood test done. With home pregnancy tests if you test too early it can show up as negative as there isn't enough of the hcg hormone in your system yet, it doubles every 1-2 days so the longer you can hold out to test the more accurate it will be. Good luck and I hope you get the outcome you want!!!

From my experience a miscarriage won't affect the hpt, I had a miscarriage before each of my babies and it didn't change anything with the tests. I'm so sorry by the way, it's a horrible experience. More discharge is pretty common with pregnancy, like DeAnn said, keep testing until you are sure one way or another.

I keep having discharge and its been going on for several days and the quantity is more it is clear or light white... I took a test this morning it came back negative... I miscarried my last baby could that have any affects on the accuracy of an hpt?
