Pregnant...But NO Proof :(

Hello ALL!

My name is Cori and I would like to ask if there are any moms out there who were pregnant but had false urine and blood tests?

I am sure I got pregnant on April 4, 2015. I have grown in my belly and have felt (who I call Emma) moving for the past six weeks. I have had irregular periods that have been so off the wall. I would bleed then not for hours and then spot, and then nothing, and then bleed lightly. Every period has been late 3-5 days and gotten shorter since April 10, 2015.

I paid to have my tubes reversed on January 8, 2015 and was allowed to start trying with my husband after my March 2015 period. First day of my March period was on March 21, 2015. Two weeks later on April 4, 2015 I felt my egg dropping and new it was the perfect day :)

Within days I was sleeping any and all the time I could for about 4 1/2 weeks. My breast were so sensitive if I could just hold them up and have nothing touch them all day...it would have been perfect. I could not eat anything because it would not digest. The food felt like a huge boulder sitting in my stomach and would literally take until the next day to go away.

I went to the doctors and he did a urine test (negative) he did blood work (all perfect except vitamin B-12) I went in two weeks later for a follow-up. I got a B-12 booster shot and he wanted to prescribe a medication to help me digest (I never picked it up and I was not nearly as tired anymore). I knew I was pregnant and was not going to put anything in my body that could hurt the baby. He did a blood test (negative) and more blood work. I went back two weeks later for another follow-up (I was eating by now). He then took another urine (negative) and said that maybe I was just putting on weight.

By now I was getting frustrated with my doctor because he was not believing me that I am pregnant. I went back in to see him about five weeks later to tell him that every time I sneeze or cough I was having bad pains in my lower belly, that my belly has grown so much that I cannot button or zip up my pants. Still he was disbelieving. I tried one more time to express my concerns and then he decided on more blood work including pregnancy test (negative) and he wanted to check my hormones to see if I was going through early menopause. I won't tell you the look that came off my face! I had just paid $5000 to reconnect my tubes and he thinks I'm going through early menopause (I'm 36 and yes my twin is actually going through it right now and apparently my mother went through it as well at this age) however, ALL of my blood work had come back phenomenal and something would have shown if there was any problems. [By the way-hormones excellent...NOT going through any kind of menopausal situations :) ] So then I address the fact that he told me that I was probably just putting on weight.

I had him check my weight since I started coming in, in January 2015 for the follow-up check-up on my surgery and have only been bouncing back and forth from 227.5 and 229. I have not put on any weight and I look five months pregnant. Because he doesn't believe I'm pregnant he feels there must be some logical explanation as to why my abdomen is growing and I am the same weight. [During my only other 3 pregnancies, I only put on about 10-12 pounds at the end of the pregnancy that turns out to be all baby and amniotic fluids. I tone up and look best during my pregnancies :)] Now he is asking that I see a GI specialist get a CT Scan done of my abdomen to see if there is anything growing inside of me! What?!? I told him that would hurt my baby, he said yes...if you were pregnant.

I left just as flustered. I have tried contacting clinics and crisis centers to do a sonogram so that I can take the proof to my doctor so that I can start getting prenatal care and everyone has denied me. They all have to (by regulations) have a positive urine test before they can do a sonogram. I even contacted companies that do the 2D. 3D, and 4D sonograms that you pay out of pocket for and they denied me as well :(

My last attempt was going into the ER last Wednesday to complain about the pains I have when the baby sits to the front of my abdomen. My lower belly is in pain and I get sharp pains about my uterus. They asked if I was pregnant (a small part of me wanted to say yes and that I am due January 23, 2016, but I cannot lie) I told them that I believe I am pregnant but that my doctor does not. They denied me the help I needed and ended up doing a sonogram of my Gal-Bladder! When the doctor told me he would do a sonogram to help me, he did...but he lied about what kind of sonogram! When the lady started grinding the handled into my rib cage and shoving down on my upper abdomen, I was like "what are you doing?!?" She said checking my Gal-Bladder. I told her I was not there for my Gal-Bladder, but to see how far along I was and to make sure the baby is okay. She asked about a urine test and I told her it was negative. She said the doctor would never order a sonogram to check how far I was without a positive urine test. Had I known this earlier I would never had walked to the back with the tech and been put through that pain. (By the way the blood work the doctor did, came back so well that they were commenting on how healthy I was, but that they were still waiting on my chemicals...ARE THEY MAD!...if I was on drugs we would have not just been discussing how excellent my blood work looked!) I was so angry and in so much pain that I grabbed my husband and we walked out of the ER. My blood pressure was 150/90 and I have never been this high :( I did not wait for/nor do I need the results of my Gal-Bladder. Even the tech was questioning why I was there after I said no to all 3 of her questions pertaining to the sonogram of the Gal-Bladder.

I even started showing signs of (I'm not sure if its "Toxemia"/"Pre-Clampsia") but I have had abnormal swelling throughout my entire legs. I know that high blood-pressure after 20+ weeks can cause this. I have decided that I am just going to have to deliver this baby at home :( I started buying maternity clothes and still take excellent care of my self. My blood pressure is lower, but probably not low enough (due to not being believed). I even bought a Fetal Doppler to check the baby's heart beat at home, but she kicks the microphone and hides :) I caught her heart beat a couple of times, but she doesn't stay around long enough to get a good reading. But my husband and I have heard her swimming away after kicking the microphone.

I have another check-up with my doctor this Thursday 27, 2015 and am going to ask him to do a sonogram. I'm going to let him know what I have been through and plead that he believe me and HELP me! Oh and on the upside, finally no period this month. I'm hoping that I will start showing up pregnant for the next urine test on Thursday :)

If anyone can offer advice, it will be more than welcomed!

Thank you for taking out time to read about my situation,

Cori

Hello ladies, I have been reading this post for a while and wanted to add in a little information. I, myself, have been going through something similar. I am due in Feb 2016, I am a little overweight and my belly has been getting bigger, I am currently at about 22 weeks along. We have heard the baby’s heartbeat, a steady 158, while mine sits at an average 86 bpm. My blood pressure has gone up a little and keeps climbing, more than my normal range. I just recently moved, so trying to find a good doctor has not been easy, and in my case I actually didn’t start feeling my symptoms harder than normal until a month ago. I went into the ER due to having problems breathing, catching my breath, I told her I believe I am pregnant and that my home tests come up positive, she did a blood test, qualative (which you have to be more than 30 HCG to register and only reads yes or no, unlike a quantitative which will tell you the amount of HCG), and that came up negative. They did a chest x-ray and my lungs were clear, which is odd for me because I have had pneumonia before, once you have it you always do, and I get sick with bronchitis typically every year around this time. So, I questioned her because it’s her job to answer them and assist me medically, I asked why I would have positive at home but negative blood and why they wouldn’t test my urine. She would not give me a definite answer and said she was not sure. This is a NP mind you, just about a step from a doctor. I come from a family full of nurses and doctors, so I am not completely ignorant to what the terminology or steps are they take. I asked if the body only produces HCG in three cases, your pregnant, you’re having a hysterical pregnancy, or you have a tumor within your uterus. Well, I had a scan show no tumor, and I am pretty sure it’s not a hysterical pregnancy, I am not wanting a baby THAT bad. So, finally she offered a pelvic exam to just feel my stomach, and strictly told me she will not do a full pelvic exam or a pap smear, I said ok. She felt my stomach and looked at me funny before having my other nurse get a tray to do a full pelvic exam, I asked her why and she ignored me, we performed the exam, she felt my cervix and said she will give me a list of referred OBGYN’s and told me off the record she felt a uterus and that my cervix is low and soft which is typically preterm labor, but that she could not order a ultrasound without a positive blood test. I said thank you and went about my day.
This applies to those that are leaving rude comments, no names need to be listed, you know who you are.
But, what else I wanted to add to this was, not only are some of you being extremely rude and cruel, but yes IT IS POSSIBLE to not show at ALL and still be pregnant, even on a sono/ultrasound. My mother was pregnant with my youngest brother, had urine and blood show negative, even had a vaginal and stomach ultrasound performed and all came back negative, a month later she ended up in the ER in severe pain, the doctor checked her and said ma’am you are in active labor, she was 7 months pregnant. She gave birth to my little brother preterm, the reason it didn’t show, make movement, she didn’t get any symptoms, nothing was because he actually sat on her back. So through her fat, which she was an average 180lbs, the doctor could not see anything. She never even developed a full stomach.
And if you don’t believe that story, my best friend in high school had a stranger issue, she was your typical skinny little girl, worked out every day. She gained 5 lbs. and thought it was due to her diet, at 8 month and 2 weeks she gave birth to a 9lb baby boy who sat sideways, all she ever developed was in her hips, it made her go up one pant size. She never knew she was pregnant.
So, AGAIN, it is possible to have negative tests and even no symptoms and still be pregnant, but REGARDLESS of all of that, this woman came onto this site to let loose her worries and tell her story to have shoulders to lean on and women to talk to, not to have ignorant people tear her down and tell her she is crazy for lack of a better word. How is someone to feel that they can safely come on here and seek some advice or someone to listen to them without someone showing their true colors and giving them backlash?!
Corrine, I believe you, and you are right, only WE know our bodies, and you believe what you feel is going on and those around you that support you. One way or another the truth will come to light, until then I am here to back you up and do believe you are pregnant. I pray for you to have a healthy and safe pregnancy and delivery and that everything in your personal life goes as good as you need it to. I send my love and baby dust! 

Hello Corrine,
I hope your baby and you are doing well. You aren't crazy by a long shot. What you were experiencing is called a cryptic pregnancy. I am now experiencing my second Cryptic Pregnancy. Everything you've stated sounds too familiar! As around the same time, I was going through exactly the same thing! I went everywhere I could think of. To only be told the same thing. You're not pregnant or looked at as if I was crazy. As I had already had one child, I think I was pretty sure what it felt like to be pregnant. There is one important thing I must add. During Cryptic pregnancies Everything is negative. You may get a faint positive on an ept or blood work early on. However after that it will also become negative. One more important thing I must add. Because the hormone levels are completely different during a Cryptic Pregnancy you will most definitely carry your baby way longer than 9 months. I carried my first for 17 months. The first 12 and a half as a Cryptic Pregnancy, until my cycles completely stopped an the pregnancy turned normal. Only then was everything positive, including the ultrasound. People want to know how this is possible. My first answer would be "All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me"! Secondly because the hormones are so low it takes the babies longer to develope. However they do develope "Normally"! These pregnancies has been known to go up to a few years. I am now 18 months in my second Cryptic Pregnancy. Hopefully it to will turn normal. Until then I'll let The Good Lord fight this battle. I will not put my self through anymore heart ache and pain then I've already been through. Surrounding these circumstances. O yeah, that baby I wasn't pregnant with is 21 months! Happy, Healthy, Smart and the most energetic lil fella you ever want to see. I wish you all the best of luck! In just know when Man fells us, GOD won't! Stay prayed up and keep fighting the good fight! Hugs and kisses! 🙌🙌🙌

I was going over some of the responses. Thank you for those who shared, I'm sorry to those who decided to leave this group, and for those of you who consistently chose to hurt others with your words, I am truly sorry you have nothing better to do than sit around waiting to bash those looking for answers. I kept track of my babies heart beat with my Doppler and the hospital and my first doctor heard my babies heart beat as well. They were monitoring my heart beat at the same time to prove two different heart beats. They believed in my pregnancy until the ultrasound shown up empty, then they just said they couldn't see me anymore. I just recently went back to two new doctors and both have been working with me. They are limited on what they are allowed to do. I know that a few of you keep saying to get a CT Scan, but my doctors refused it to me. I had to beg for x-rays when I hurt my back and it took 5 hours to finally get everyone on board and I only got it because I signed a paper giving them permission to take them. Even with negative urine and blood work, doctors are not willing to take the risk. I got an MRI done of my shoulder and had to still sign for it regardless of the negative results. Until you have been
put in this situation, you have no idea how hard it is. This is why most of us stop going. I only went back because of a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder and a back injury. I have learned to self deliver and keep a car seat and bags packed for when we travel, other than that they stay in my room until I need them. I never thought I was having an undetected or hidden pregnancy until after the 11 1/2 month, because my sister went that long with my niece. Please all who read this looking for answers, don't let what you read here keep you from searching for answers. Keep your faith and turn to God when you get lost. Much love and support from me to you and your families.

I am actually in Dental Hygiene School, going into my third semester. They can remove the tooth, but if it is broken, it might be infected. If it is infected, it needs antibiotics before treatment. The reason for this is because the Lidocaine/Novocaine whatever you choose to call it, will not effectively numb the area because of the acidity level the bacteria will make the inflamed tissue. Which means you would need a lot more novicaine than average and still may not effectively numb the area. Antibiotics will get the infection under control and return the tissue to the normal Ph level, therefore able to treat properly. There ARE treatment options, it just depends on YOU the patient, and how much you are going to actually let them treat you. This can be a HUGE problem with a broken tooth. I could go on an on about how many problems can occur. You DO need a radiograph to determine the treatment of said tooth. It would be in the best interest of your health to have the Dentist see the negative results of your most recent tests so you can be properly treated. She could potentially even speak to your primary care physician, but you are making it difficult for anyone to help you.

I know that you are looking for support, but Cori, you have to try to see it from other peoples perspectives. This is very difficult because many of us have background in the medical field ,and ALL of us have been pregnant.

At this point, you really need to get a cat scan. Maybe if you see for your own eyes that there is no baby , you can get the help you need. At this point, you are willing to deteriorate mind and body for a phantom pregnancy.

How is your husband? What does your nurse friend think at this point? Are you getting support and mental health?

Please answer some questions. We might be strangers, but we are wanting to help. It has been almost a year. We all feel invested to a degree. All I personally want to do is help. Please keep in contact. If you have any more dental related questions, I can do my best to answer, but please get it taken care of or more problems will occur.

Hi Amber, sorry I don't look at this posting often. Have you ever gotten a positive urine or blood test?

Also, when you have time, read over my posts.

Some of the ladies here are not that nice, but you learn to ignore their words. They are only speaking from a place of disbelief because they have never had a pregnancy that was denied due to negative urine and blood tests.

But I continue to post so that other women have somewhere to ask for help.

This site was meant for those in similar situations to work together and support each other until answers are found, however it also seems to be a place where those who have nothing better to do, can come and place judgement on others.

Good bless and good luck. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me here.

I agree with Sarah, if you can hear the baby's heartbeat then an ultrasound would have found a baby, especially since you had a vaginal one as well.
Your "facts" aren't consistent with the results you are explaining.

I have a cyptic pregnancy that’s all I can say. I have very little to share because Cori covered the facts here. Cyptic pregnancy is when a woman’s body refuses to believe it is pregnant and hormones are off. I had a double line but 2nd line was faded but came out POSITIVE line pregnancy test at home, so I purchased a Doppler and heard and saw fetal heartbeat without a doubt in my mind I’m going by my own instincts and conclusions. I had urine, blood analysis, ultrasound and vaginal sonogram at Hospital clinic that all came back NEGATIVE. Luckily I don’t use drugs or abuse my body so I’m taking things day by day. I noticed belly in May of this year 2018 visited Planned Parent Hood on June 14 got a POSITIVE that day so I visited my primary doctor and ob/gyn on June 18 just few days later as you can see got a NEGATIVE. My belly is very obvious I got all the symptoms but I’m unclear of my pregnancy time frame since my last to which I believe was my normal period was back in March 11 but before then I had some spotting type of periods. It’s overwhelming and exhausting situation no one would want to be in. I’ve decided to hide my pregnancy with what I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and inaccurate Pap smear and avoid talking about a possible pregnancy with the professionals that would not acknowledge cyptic pregnancy unless test remain POSITIVE. If you aren’t experiencing this issue, you won’t believe it. So if you don’t believe it why comment here and give opinions I would not judge or be rude weather it’s unbelievable or incredibly mind bottling. I’m living with this fact each day hoping this remains and turns normal. For those who are experiencing this stay calm and collective and protect your pregnancy prepare to give birth on your own and ignore the ignorancy of people who have no clue and think they know it all because if they did they wouldn’t be so rude and arrogant. God bless you all who have cyptic pregnancy and trying to bring awareness

Unless you didn't have sex for the whole time there is no way to prove that you were pregnant for all those months before your pregnancy became "normal".
As it has been stated before, cryptic pregnancies are when the Mother doesn't know she is pregnant until later on on in the pregnancy. What you are describing ISN'T a cryptic pregnancy.
There is no way that the OP is still pregnant over 2 years later!!!!! She has also refused tests that would prove she isn't pregnant so I think she knows the truth but doesn't want to accept it.

Also Sarah, You give one quote by ? source. There are many many sources that describe what cryptic pregnancy is, and they give examples. A simplified version is in Journal of Emergency Nursing (JEN). The Huffington post has several examples as well.

Sarah, I am skeptical about the 2-5 year gestation myself. I did not state that. I do not read that support group information as it is depressing and actually seems non supportive and non fact based.

I merely pointed to Drs that have quoted, as well as many articles do, that 1/450 pregnancies are cryptic. I find that the definition is applied loosely and I find it confusing. I have read about so many cryptic or stealth pregnancies and most have nothinging to do with 5 months.

Google Doctor Oz utube crptic pregnancy. He has an Obgyn explaining. Google Dr. Bryan Jick and cryptic pregnancy. Google NIH and... Google cryptic pregnancy Calif, etc. Please be open minded. I am learning as I read, more and more how as with other conditions, it can be unique to different women. Ps, I was an ER nurse for 14 years, have my masters and am a family NP. I am just saying I am educated, and have an analytical mind but I am learning that cryptic pregnancy has none or all sx of regular preg but has definite differences that have led to the term cryptic or stealth.

1/450 pregnancies are cryptic. Dr. Oz has had several different episodes on cryptic pregnancies with ob gyn drs and patients tellinv their stories. The show "The Doctors" also. In addition, a good article if you google Cryptic pregnancy, Dr. Christian, Closer magazine. There is a California Dr. named Brian Jick who is an obgyn and has written about cryptic pregnancies. These are Drs that dont want to lose their credibility. Open your minds ladies.

Hi Cori. I am going through with the doctors almost exactly what you are. I feel based on aa sx of pregnancy and movement that I have twins, and they are cryptic. Negative preg tests, urine and blood. I have had 3 ultrasounds that were negative, but they were not obstetric. Also I could not get any independent us picture place that u pay cash for to give me an us without a positive pregnancy test. I also named my babies long ago. I am now 12 mos. But I had a lot of Brax hicks contractions until about 37 weeks, but none for 2 mos now. Lots of baby movement, and I gained 30 lbs. Mostly in my abd. I have seen 7 drs. So frustrated. I am 12 mos . I dont know how you have gone 30 mos. I want an MRI, and I want to be induced if they are over 2 lbs. I feel they are growth restricted.

Hello Patricia.

First, let me thank you for posting here.

Second, I am not sure if it's the University of Hawaii. I know that there are doctors in Hawaii who are working with women to keep track of the cryptic hidden pregnancies.

You can also check out Susan Wheat with Cryptic Pregnancies, on Facebook, however unless you are having a cryptic pregnancy, she may not speak with you.

Have a great day,

Cori

Cori-

first thing to say is I believe you. Second is I thought I read in your posts somewhere about the University of Hawaii doing some work in the cryptic pregnancy area. I would love more information on this if possible.

Take care-

All of you, please understand that our doctors are trained only in what their school books say. When they don't have or cannot find an answer in their books, they turn to the internet. So, where you say, "Stop looking up our symptoms on line", that's exactly where our doctors get their information and oddly enough, where you all get yours.

Dove, I did go to mental health and they believe I am pregnant. They watched my body change, saw my stomach move and refused to council me in believing I am not pregnant. The lady said it is not her job to tell me I am not pregnant, because she is not that type of doctor just as my physician shouldn't be telling me I have Psuedosyesis because that is not what they are trained in.

I can count the number of times I have had sex with my husband on one hand in the last 2 1/2 years. However, my pregnancy was recorded when I was 21 weeks along. So once my baby is born, I have proof of the length of pregnancy.

If you have the means and funding to help Joanna live in Hawaii until the birth of her baby, please do so. There are doctors working with women in our situation. Though their work will take years to be available to the public, because our pregnancies take years, at least they are doing something. Stanford would love to get their hands on me, but no doctor will say I'm pregnant to send me. Our University isn't set up medically yet, or they would be searching now and keeping track of my pregnancy.

Yes Dove, 2 1/2 years. And not a day goes by that I don't remember every single one of those days. There are pictures of me throughout the community over the course of this time that show my belly. I get asked questions and answer the best way I can. I cannot stop living my life because of my belly showing all this time. My community of 80,000 has many supporters, so the few that still do not believe, don't matter.

Hi Dove. You must keep in mind that most insurances will not cover exploratory search for a baby unless you test positive and even if for some reason your physician agrees they are mandated to only look in the pelvic area. Since most of us in this situation have uterus that have flipped backwards and in mist of those has tucked under itself, the baby will attach in the part of the uterus that is lying on the curve of our tailbone. In this case, our intestines lie towards the front of our bellies, then it's the uterus, then our back organs. Doctors would have to really search for our babies and that would take putting the dial to the ultrasound machine on 10 not 2 where it is currently held.

The downside to having our babies found, is that our doctors would then force us to abort our baby because they would consider it non-living due to not carrying the HCG hormone. Those of us that fight to keep our babies could find ourselves in a court battle where a judge could determine us not sane take our baby. This is not a risk worth taking.

Let me ask you, how many stories have you heard, where a doctor tells his patient that the fetus is dead because there is no HCG hormone levels and gives them the option of waiting for their body to naturally abort the baby or having it induced. And how many of those women chose to wait just to find out Weeks later that their baby is alive. They could have chose to induce the abort of their baby and killed it. What happens is that their bodies do not register their pregnant and even though the fetus looks like it's dead, it is just taking longer to get to 5 1/2 Weeks to where the heart is visible. The doctors will tell their patient that they miscalculated the date they conceived and go about their way. These women will end up in pregnancies that last up to 14 or 17 months, depending on when their body registered their pregnancy.

Hi ladies. Sorry I haven't posted in a very long time. I will be 120 weeks, which is 30 Months, this Saturday. I have been going to service the last year and have learned to just accept my pregnancy for what it is. I went through some pretty bad times with this pregnancy and it took building my faith in God to get through them. I look due and constantly get asked when my baby is due. I smile and say I hope soon :) Most people are awe struck about my pregnancy and ask many questions but there are still a few who choose to laugh. It doesn't bother me anymore what others think. I just would really like to give birth....like yesterday. Through many prays and supporters, we have been praying for December 12, 2017. I still get tested to prove that my pregnancy does not show in urine or blood but will prove I was and am pregnant once my baby is born. I am happy to answer any questions any of you may have. Keep in mind, if your questions are to just make fun or to hurt, I will not respond, Thank you :)

stop going to your doctor!!!! lol you only need to go if there is a serious problem, drs will continually tell you there is something wrong just to keep you going back to them ,its probably all in your head, if you know you are pregnant, just take care of you and baby, forget about any kind of doctor until delivery. and relaxe, pregnancy is a fun time, you are probably scaring your baby each and every time you go to see the doctor, ,,, best of luck.

Did you have a pelvic exam around 6 weeks just to prove to them that you were just wondering

Little Miss, I just wanted to say that your dental post was quite informative! Now the antibiotics make even more sense.

You both are right, and also a doctor WOULD refuse treatment if someone has tested negative, looks pregnant, be seems unstable. That is their license on the line, and a lawsuit waiting to happen. So, yes, thoroughly examining your patient in all manners is imperative in all fields of health care. BUT (a BIG BUT) medical professionals can only go as far as the patient consents unless they have been admitted against their will.

She has been told for months to get a CT scan and avoids the issue. Any woman in her right mind who believed she was pregnant for 70 weeks would get a CT scan. I don't believe for a moment a doctor refused to treat you after a second visit just because the tests are negative, because a doctor has a greater duty of care than that - if a woman presented LOOKING pregnant and describing symptoms, but had negative tests, that doctor WOULD recommend further investigation, and WOULD entertain the idea of a CT scan and more ultrasounds. So the OP needs to stop avoiding the issue, and if she truly gave a shit about her baby, she WOULD go and get those scans.

Doesn't look like it.

NO ONE can be pregnant for 70 weeks. It is NOT physically, nor physiologically possible.

PLEASE seek assistance!

I'm not posting to answer any questions. Just updating what's going on.

The posting that goes on while I'm not posting is mostly negative.

I don't want to be part of any negativity when I'm already having enough issues on my own, especially holding on to doctor's because they refuse me as a patient after the second appointment.

I have been reading what goes on and even if someone posts support or tries to persuade those against Cryptic Pregnancies, the majority of you are just as negative to them.

My postings are meant to help.

I am approaching 70 weeks on Saturday. I've spoken to a doctor who has taken an interest in my pregnancy. He's going to be researching to see what's going on.

I have a friend who's wife did not show pregnant for the first three months. Her doctor placed her on Zoloft to help her stress he said she had which were causing her symptoms. Her hcg picked up at month four. Her daughter was born with muscular dystrophy.

I look in my third trimester so my dentist and I have been going round and round about my broken tooth. The last doctor who saw me said that she can only help by doind a urine test and sending a negative slip to them. She also told me if "I was" pregnant she would not clear me for an x-ray. Even with the negative test, the dentist will only do an x-ray if the clinic three towns over will take me. They specialize in dentistry in pregnant women. The specialty clinic still has yet to determine if they'll take me but our local dentist offices refuse me. Also wanted to let you know that having my tooth extracted, I can only be in my first or third trimester to be safe for the baby. Because I cannot prove how big my baby is, I have to deal with a broken molar.

I still visit doctors every two to three months to collect the negative tests and notes so that I can at least prove my pregnancy for the past 10 months.

Cori, it has been over 2 months since we have had any updates. I hope you are doing well, and post soon!!

Trust me. We have been going thru hell and back to prove that she is pregnant to doctors. Once the test come back negative that's a wrap. Oh we have no doubts whatsoever that she is pregnant. Over 50 something people in counting that are witnessing and helping also agrees. The doctors own nurse staff looks at their doctors and can't believe that they turn down the help that my wife needs. Basically they know once she gives birth, what's the next legal step is going to be no doubt. I'm actually going to talk to my wife and see how does she still feel about getting an CT scan when she gets home.

It's just that there are tests available to find out for sure and you won't do them. A CT scan is a lot less harmful than a 15 month pregnancy and most people would do everything to prove the truth. Those that don't do everything possible seem to have a doubt about it and don't want to find out the truth.

Wow..getting into my personal life right there..lol..but seriously yes we have..I have never gone without sex this long..man this has been something else..smh

All I will ask, have you abstained from sex for the last 15 months?
If not then there is no way to tell when she fell pregnant if she is at all.

[deleted account]

Sorry Dove...all pregnacies are not the same. My wife's uterus could be tilted an whole different way than yours.

[deleted account]

God has a different unique plan for all of us. He doesn't make mistakes. Just because you or any female you know have never gone thru something like this or witnessed it does not mean it can not happen. You don't know any of God's plans personally. None of us do. The next second is not promised to you. My wife has had ultrasounds. Like I said, nothing was shown. She has an tilted uterus and that is one of the issues that's causing that. Yes we have been scared from time to time but all we can do is put it in God's hands and keep the faith strong. Everything happens for an reason. My wife has gotten prenatal from the nurses that are helping us. We also have different plans to try and finally get an doctor on deck that's going to help. After this is all over and done with, I have faith that everything is going to be ok. We do have alot of support thanks to God. Just know if you happened to hear about this on the news...that will be me and my wife showing everyone THE TRUTH about cryptic pregnancies.

Have you had an ultrasound? Sorry, but the fact is, babies do not grow that slowly. By not receiving the medical help you should be getting, you are potentially harming your bay/babies anyway. Can't you see that? In particular if it is twins, you are taking a MAJOR risk. CT scans are an absolute minimal risk. Lack of prenatal care is a high risk. If your wife is huge, then the pregnancy is far enough advanced that the baby is well developed. Women in early developmental stages of pregnancy are not normally that big.

God did not create us to be pregnant for longer than 9-10 months. That was God's plan. That is how God created women. Are you seriously suggesting that God made a mistake with your wife?

[deleted account]

That's the thing. How do you know that most of the baby's development is done? This baby is growing at an very slow rate. My wife's stomach is so huge and protrudes out, that we think it's a possibility that it could be twins since it runs in her family. Basically getting an CT scan is very risky. You're taking a gamble rather you like or not due to the type of pregnancy. I wish I could just see inside her with my eyes but unfortunately we all know that's not happening. We are just ready to hold our child or children and love them. And share this experience with as many people as we can and also get on board helping those whom are going thru the same thing. We definitely feel their pain.

If your baby is a 15 month fetus, most of its development is done. There will be no harm. You are better off getting confirmation than not receiving adequate medical care because doctors don't believe you. That is potentially doing MORE harm to mother and baby than a CT scan, not being a normal pregnancy.....

[deleted account]

My wife considered that but is scared that it will hurt our unborn child. I totally understand being that this is not an normal pregnancy.

[deleted account]

After the tests came back negative. The doctor refused to use the fetal doppler again. He was actually the first one that told my wife she was pregnant after giving her an exam and also using his fetal doppler PICKING UP A HEARTBEAT. Different doctors also behaved the same way.

If you have such faith in God, how about going to get that CT scan that will prove you right?

[deleted account]

Cori...I BELIEVE YOU. My wife and I are currently going thru the same thing that you are experiencing. She is an year and a half pregnant. We ARE ABLE TO FEEL KICKS AND MOVEMENTS all thru out the day. We also are able to PICK UP FETAL HEARTBEATS on an fetal doppler. Negative pregnancy test. Negative blood tests. Nothing seen on an ultrasound. Her stomach is very huge. Pregnant look no doubt. Doctors are turning us away because of negative tests. The woman on here are very disrespectful. They claim to have faith in science and God not knowing that you CAN NOT have both. God works in mysterious ways that at times DO NOT go by the laws of science. So basically they contradict themselves looking and sounding actually ridiculous. My wife and I stand strong in the faith of our Lord over some doctor anyday. My prayers go out to you. Stay strong and ask God to give you the strength, courage and will power to keep going. After my wife gives birth we are actually going to the news about it. Alot of woman out here needs support while going thru a type of pregnancy like this but ends up with friends and family turning their backs. And of course an audience like these woman on here. The Cryptic support group that Ms. Wheat has hits everything on the nail. I thank God for bringing a person like that forward to help those in need like my wife and you. Yes phantom pregnancies do exist. This is why a lot of people do not believe in cryptic pregnancies. I am a personal Witness to my wife's pregnancy and all of the symptoms and I stand by her a 100%. This is not the first pregnancy I have witnessed. I know a baby when he kicks and moves. I know a heartbeat when I hear one on a fetal doppler. These woman on here claims to want to give advice but are doing nothing but trying to discourage you. You sound like a very strong minded woman that knows what she is talking about. The woman who made that website about cryptic pregnancy not being true lost an baby and has not gotten over it. Once again I believe you and my prayers go out to you. Stand strong in the faith of our Lord. May you deliver an beautiful boy or girl and live a beautiful blessed life......Also you should try and find nurses whom are trained to handle pregnancies. My wife and I have several nurses that are helping us out and even they believe that my wife is pregnant. God Bless
