I've been reading through everyone's comments and there are so many I couldn't read them all. So here is my story, my last period was on Aug 31st and it lasted about three-four days, as normal. My Husband and I have been having all unprotected sex for months. We have had sex pretty much everyday during the month of September. Well, when it was time for my period in September it never came, which is odd because my periods have been like clock work since I was 15. I started feeling like death, I was always tired throughout the day but couldn't sleep at night to save my life, I was sick to my stomach, breasts were huge and sore, peeing every 5 minutes, headaches all the time. Since I missed my period I started taking home tests and they were all coming back negative. One night I actually got a halfway decent nights sleep but I wanted to take a test in the morning so I woke up took the test, brought it in and sat it on the night stand and went back to bed for about an hour or so. After about 5-6 negatives I woke up to a positive but I've heard you can't trust tests that sit for longer then 10 minutes. So made an apt for the Dr and they did a urine and blood test which both came back negative. I started having some spotting, but not period spotting, darker blood and not even enough to fill a pad. Then the month of Oct came and I missed my period again. I've been having the same symptoms but they are just getting worse, I can hardly touch my nipples they are so sore my breasts are so hard. In Oct I had what I thought was going to be a period but it was light spotting for a couple days a little heavier than last time but still dark and not enough to fill a pad. I honestly don't know what to say but I know my body and something is wrong. I've never been pregnant, but my periods are NEVER off even by the slightest. I normally have tons of energy and none of these symptoms, I've heard 1 in 1000 women their body doesn't produce the HCG hormone. I just need advice, I don't want to go to anyone in my family unless I know for sure I'm pregnant or not. I've never heard of anyone with this problem, normally you're late and you pee on a stick and you're pregnant or you're not. I feel pregnant, my husband even notices the differences in my body. If I am pregnant I will be almost 10wks. Is this common? Could I be? Should I force myself to believe this is a flook? I would rather not wait a couple more weeks to find out if I miss another period, since I've already missed two so far.
Keep me posted, good luck. Like I mentioned I went to the Dr and they thought I was stupid or something. I had to practically beg the doctor to do blood work. What confused me was I got the blood taken about 4pm on a thursday and she told me that I should have the result by noon the next day and she would call me. Well right about noon, maybe a little after, she called saying it was negative and to she was calling me in a script for birth control pills. From what I've been told online it likes longer then 24hr to get blood tests back from the lab. I in a way feel that my blood wasn't even looked at.
hmm i just went, and got a blood test done today for pregnancy, They took me pregnancy test got to be done in the morning...maybe you could seen another opinion? I have heard of false blood testing, that you should wait another week or two. A ultrasound is another good way of finding out since you are pretty far long to see something. GOod luck keep us posted!
Thanks for your support. I talked to my husband when he got off work today and we are contemplating getting an ultrasound. We figured that would be our only way of really knowing. Today we went through a list of pregnancy symptoms and I asked him if he has felt I have had any, just making sure this wasn't all in my head. He marked yes to every single one but maybe one or two. I even had a friend of mine ask if I was wearing a padded bra because my breasts looked so large. Truthfully I can only fit into one of my bras anymore and I'm spilling out, I have to have it on the loosest clip. Just wearing a bra is killing me because my breast are so sore. HELP!
To me it really sounds like you are pregnant. I have some videos on youtube explaining about when u first get pregnant up until birth if u r interested you can check it out :) hope it helps, and hope u find out soon I would love to know if u r pregnant so I can give you a big congrats hug :D tho the internet lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HU5F30JS8U4
So I have taken two more pregnancy tests. One each morning for the pas two days with my first urine and both have come back negative, no surprise here. By breasts have still been killing me and they don't fit into my bras anymore. I went to the store this evening and tried on some new bras. I have gone up over a cup size. I honestly can't afford an ultra sound right now. I've heard that by 10wks you should be able to hear a heartbeat externally, with a stethoscope. Is it worth trying. Today I am 10wks and two days if I am pregnant, but still no positive. This isn't normal.
i bet if we were to take a poll of how many women who were pregnant, and far long still got a neg test, Be quite a few more then we realized. I had lot of women tell me they didn't get a positive until 17wks, 4months, even the whole pregnancy! So I guess it depend on the level of hormones that is produced. I seen a comment where a young woman went out, and got a device that let you hear the baby's heartbeat. I can't remember what it was called i ll have to find that post again, and find out what it is was.
Was going to go in last week, but we have no walk in places in my town, so we are going back the 20th to make an appointment if I still dont get my period. Your HCG, or whatever its called, levels could be too low.
Im in the same boat as you right now... its crazy my last regular period was 5th Sept... I have heaps of symptoms even started to get some gross metalic taste in my mouth... I cant drink orange juice anymore because it tastes gross and off... I have read heaps of forums where this has happened to plenty of females... I started to feel lik I was going insane... one day I woke up and started crying for no reason at all for about 30 mins... last week I started crying at work over a silly email... I was reading somewhere that when some females reach 7 weeks the HCG breaks down and cant be read someone called it a criptic pregnancy I think its called... One forum that I read one of the ladies was 9 months pregnant and was still getting neg bloods and hpt... some of the females were saying they had what they thought was a period the whole time they were pregnant so I read up on that and they class it as something called breakthrough bleeding because my mum still had what she thought was a period the whole time she was pregnant with me and she didnt find out she was pregnant until she was 6 months gone with me... If I am pregnant I would be 11 weeks according to the caculator but you take off 2 weeks so it would be 9 weeks... Im just going to wait and see if I have a period this month and if I dont Im going to ask my doc for an ultrasound to see what is going on because the symptoms are all still there and my temp is still up and I have more and more symptoms as time goes by... a few weeks ago I had pains like I had done 100 situp my muscles were sore in my hips, stomach and the side of my stomach it was very uncomfortable...
