Not Testing pregnant, feel pregnant, look pregnant

Ok, so I have a very odd story. I'm actually going back and for to the hospital because the doctors are trying to figure out what's wrong with me. If pregnant, I am about between 3 and 4 months. I feel movement (like when singing, or when my husband talks, etc.), my stomach and breasts are the only parts of me that are growing, and have experienced all the symptoms of pregnancy. I have not tested pregnant on any tests (blood or urine) and when they did an ultrasound, they could not find the baby (even had trouble seeing my ovaries). I have PCOS and Endometriosis. There are no fibroids...and my doctor thought I was having some type of hormonal imbalance, but all the tests have come back that my hormone levels are stable. My belly continues to grow. They want to do a CT Scan, but i'm not comfortable with that just in case I am pregnant. Anyone been through this before? Oh and my insulin levels are through the roof!!!!

Yeah, I haven't been trying for years...wasn't trying at all really. The symptoms started and I thought I was sick. Kept going to urgent care. Urgent care sent me to obgyn. Been going back and forth ever since. If I'm not pregnant, I'm not pregnant. I just need to know what's happening. No one is giving me a clear cut answer.

sounds like a phantom pregnancy. happened to my friends. she was trying so desperately for years and once she missed her period she assumed she was pregnant even though bloods and urine had come back negative. what happens is that you want to be pregnant so bad, your brain tricks your body into thinking you are and even getting pregnancy related symptoms. missing periods, breasts swelling and in some cases lactating, stomach expanding, cravings etc. it took her awhile to accept she wasn't and she ended up having to seek help from a counsellor. I'm not saying this is whats happening with you, just a suggestion. all the best (:
