okay. I have a doctors apointment tomorrow morning. but I dont have insurance and I'm paying out of pocket. Im scared im wasting all this money. but a lot of me is telling me I'm not. so I'm just looking for conformation that I'm not crazy.

in Dec my period was 7 days late. my period was always super regular. if i was ever late it was 1 day but hardly ever. and they would last 3days be gone one day then come back for one more day really light. anyway. no 7 days late. then that 7th day I started having brown spotting whie I was at work. then it stoped. came back. and stopped again. the next morning my period was here. it last 3 days only and the flow was very light. the only time it ever even got on a pantiliner was at night. I was super nauseas and had heart burn super bad lie very night. my boobs were kinda sore but not really. but all test were neg.

the next month jan. my period came 6 days EARLY! and again was only like 2 1/2 days and was flow was very light same as last time. still neg HPT.

same thing in Feb period days early. and now I'm having spotting in between my periods.

then this month it was days eraly again but it last longer. days. and was a little heavier. but no fever or nausea. some cramping. dull achy on inside but not super bad.

and still spotting for a little while on some days.

I would be 18 weeks today were I to be PG.

as far as movent goes. a little below my belly button and on sides )like were ovaries would be) I feel twiches like muscle spams SOMETIMES. and a few days ago I felt 2 little pokes and a few gas bubble like things. but i could just be imaging it.

my breast have gone up a cup size since all this has started. and i have sharp pains all over my belly all the time. I'm aways tired. and I'm so super irritable all the time.

Im going to go buy another HPT today. i havent taken one in a few weeks. i think it was right after my "period" or right before in feb. but neg still



i finally broke down and told my mom and she is making me go to the obgyn. but like i said I'm scared im wasting my money.

UPDATE: 4 days into the placebo section of my bcp pack, i started getting some light pink spotting, that increased to a thicker, dark brown discharge for one day, then trickled back down to pink spotting. i never got any blood clotting or tissue with the bleeding. I had no cramps at first, but developed some pain as it went on. i wrote it off as period cramps, until it got really painful, so much so that I went to the hospital. I was given a urine hcg test, that again came up negative, and a CT scan, that showed that I had a large cyst on my right ovary. I was given some pain medication and told to go home and wait it out, but to come back if it didn't improve in a few days. I waited 5 days, and it not only didn't go away, it got worse. I went back in, and my doctor gave me a higher prescription pain medication, and sent me home to wait it out some more. I noticed I'd developed hemeroids, and pretty severe constipation. I also couldn't eat much of anything without vomiting, and am perpetually tired. The doctor palpitated my abdomen when i came in, to see if my appendix or my ovary were swollen, and I noticed that my uterus is thick and sore. I'm starting to get scared now.

UPDATE: okay, still no answers for sure, but upon further research, I've found correlations between Adderall (amphetamine based drugs) and false negatives, as well as hypothyroidism and false negatives (got my test results back for thyroid issues, I'm severely hypothyridic). I've gained a little more weight, and am getting light pangs in my pelvis/uterus, as well as an occasional fluttering, but this may be intestinal gases or something. I measured and my hips are a bit wider (an inch or two) than they were before all this. I would be about 12 weeks now. I'm on levothyroxin now, and I'm considering taking another test and seeing if it comes up different now that my hormone level is a little better. As I mentioned I'm on sprintec (oral birth control) but wasn't on it at the time I would have conceived. I will finish my pack in 2 weeks, and if I don't get a period while I'm on the placebo portion of the pack, I will defiantly be taking a test.
SUMMARY:
Many hypothyroid women don't get a positive test result until 3 months or later.
Amphetamine based drugs can cause false negatives on home pregnancy tests.
Still not sure, waiting 2 weeks to test again.
Still getting symptoms, now with uterine pangs (growing pains? phantom cramps? fetus moving?).

okay.... i'm sorry i can't be more helpful, but i have been having a problem like this too... i haven't been sexually active for very long and have never been pregnant. my boyfriend and i slept together 2&1/2 months ago (aprox 9 weeks), 8 times over one week. we used condoms, but the first broke, and we've had worries that others we used may have been puntured or defective. i had some light spotting within the week we were active, but thought nothing of it. two weeks after the last time, i noticed some symptoms; nausia, fatigue, some weight gain, and a heavy feeling in my lower abdomen. when my first period didn't show up, i took a urine test which came up negative. the day my second period should have come but didn't i took another test, which again came up negative. over a week after i should have gotten my second period, i started getting some cramping, and period-like bleeding, but much shorter and lighter than normal. i'm still experiencing lots of pregnancy-like symptoms. my stomach has gotten larger by a bit, mostly at the bottom, and it feels hard and tight under my initial layer of fat. my hips also seem to pivot a bit differently sense my pelvis started feeling dense...
SYMPTOMS: nausia, sensitivity to smell, fatigue, swollen, tender breasts (+1 cup size in 2 months also), weight gain (about 10 lbs), some stretch marks only on hips, lower stomach, and breasts, visible veins in breasts, stomach slightly larger but tight and kinda hard feeling, and hormone fluctuation/ mood swings. heavy feeling in pelvis in first couple weeks, not as obvious now.
MED BACKROUND:
family history of ovarian cysts, suspected thyroid problems (not yet diagnosed), currently on adderall and previously on straterra for ADD.
others- i also take calcium tablets because i am lactose intollerant, but this does not seem like it would be important in this situation, and am currently on sprintec (bcp) but only started on this two days ago, perscribed because i don't set off preg tests so it's been assumed that i have very irregular periods.
CONCERNS:
1) high risk pregnancy
2) ectopic pregnancy
3) undetected pregnancy (not necissarily ectopic or high risk, just undiagnosed)
4) no pregnancy, but another problem that needs to be treated

I.....I would very much be happy if I were to be. I would be so excited. But at the same time I wouldn't be extremely disapointed if I weren't. But donttake that wrong I would be a little sad. Because no matter how emotionaly ready I may be for a child. Financially I am not (I know no one every really is. But im really not) I mean I have my parents and his that would def. Help out. I'm just trying not to get too excited over this. And be let down more than I'm expexting because I know it could just be very weird hormonal prblems or something else. But I do havemy fingers crossed.

well try not to stress too much cause its not good if you are preggers its not good to stress alot..and at this point you should assume that you are until proven different.. it sounds like that doc wouldnt be a good one cause if hes that busy both times you have gone the quality of care cant be that great.. good luck monday and we will be waiting to hear the good news!



just wondering since no one has asked you are you hoping that you are pregnant??

I'm so incredibly annoyed! I don't know if this is my sign that I'm wasting my time or what but. Same thing today! This doctor had to deliver 2 babies! I told the lady to forget it. I don't care he is the supposed best obgyn here he's way to busy. So I made an ppointment at a clinic my friend works at and they said the cost is way less than the other. So. Monday I have the last appointment I Am making. I'm so sorry to be stringing y'all along with me! I'm so irriaed at this whole thing.

the last time I took one was Thursday. It was neg. I haven't had a missed on. Just extremely late. And 3 tht were a week early and very light. And since mid feb I've started spotting inbetween these periods. Like the last three days I've spotted lightly for about 1 to 2 hours then it stops. And I've noticed the spotting happens a lot when I'm at work (retail)

Sounds like you very well could be pregnant.. it is also possible to have a false negative test pregnancy test.. see the doctor and tell them about eveything thats going on. Good luck ill keep my fingers crossed for you

too me, my stomach feels hard. and above my pelvic bone if i push I feel something hard. I'm slightly overweight.but my stomache looks bigger and it looks round. though, i cant really go by that because of my weight. but lately I've had family members and my mom look at me and ask "are you pregnant?"

you could be pregnant as some people bleed during pregnancy or have problemswhich can cause bleeding.. its also possible you may have had something else going on like pcos or endomitriosis since both can cause changes in your cycle.. your mom is right. you really should see your doctor.. have them do a blood hcg too cause that can tell for sure if you are pregnant or ultrasound would too..



just curious...if you feel your lower abdomen/pelvis area do you feel squishy/soft or is it tight and rigid like theres a ball in there??



best of luck and i hope you get answers soon.. not knowing is horrible
