Less than 1 on hcg blood test but still have pregnancy symptoms?

I had a low birth weigh baby in '06 and returned to using BCP. No sex until I had unproceted sex around the beginning of May '08.  I was not on BCP at the time.  The guy I was with states he had a vasectomy years back.  About a week after intercourse I started cramping very bad for 3 days with no bleeding.  The following week I had what seemed like a period with the dark red patchy looking blood for a day or two then bright red for the other 4 days.  I have been bloated ever since, breast tenderness, a few days of nausea, dull back pain--and most of the symptoms of pregnancy.  I told the guy and he had 2 sperm counts done and both results were at zero.  Along the way Ive had 2 ultrasounds (outside the pelvis) at 7 wks and at 12wks.  The say that there is nothing there at all. Ive had 3 HPT (all negative), one lab urine test (negative), one qualitive (negative) and one quantitive (less than 1) serum blood tests. Also had all the normal tests done to check for hormones etc. The qualitive serum test and hormonal test were done at "16 weeks" (gestational age if I were pregnant.) Everything is in range except for my insulin.  Its about 6 points out of range.  My OBGYN tells me I am not pregnant and told me to start taking my BCP again but I still have the sensitive breasts, Ive been having what seems like a period for around 5 days every month, it comes a few days early but it comes. My stomach is getting bigger and rounder, around my stomach is still sensitive--cant wear regular jeans ect. I cant wear underwire bras. I'm having cramping, lower back pain, I feel wave like sensations almost constantly in my abdomen.  A few days ago I had dull shooting pain in my thighs and lower back. My heart races when I am startled or stand up too quick and I can feel a heartbeat when I touch my abdomen.  Ive also had skin eruptions( skin moles) appearing on my breasts, abdomen, arms, bikini area, chest and thighs.  So after all this, could I be pregnant?  My OBGYN doesnt want to do any more tests and sent me to a therapist because she thinks I  might be going thru pseudocyesis.  I am going to make another appointment with my doctor to get tested again or get another ultrasound.  Please, can anyone shed any light on this?????
