some pregnancy symptoms, but not pregnant?

hi:) i've been having tingling & tenderness in both breasts, (which i've only had w/ pregnancy in the past), as well as Montgomery's tubercles/glands, which look like goosebumps on the nipple area.  i had a light (which is not usual 4 me) menstrual period July 29th w/ lots of spotting.  because of the breast changes & the fact that we're (TTC?) trying 2 conceive, i took 2 pregnancy tests, which gave negative reading.
i feel almost as if my body/mind is playing tricks on me, because i'm hoping to be pregnant.  the breast symptoms i'm having now happen only when i'm pregnant. (*i'm 37 yrs old, & i've had 3 full-term pregnancies.)
what is going on w/ me? :)            
i'd appreciate any ideas or suggestions u might give. :)
ps- this is my 1st time here- let me know if i've missed any details, plz. :)

Many women still get negative results when they are this early in pregnancy.  It is possible that you are pregnant even though the tests were negative.
It is also possible that you are entering menopause and the hormonal changes involved with that are causing your symptoms.
I would have a blood test done to find out for sure if you are pregnant or not.  If it is negative, I would see if the doctor would do other lab tests to check hormone levels and see if this is menopause related.

thanks 4 the response. :)
i had a hormone test a few months ago, & my levels looked great.  that's a relief, because i'd considered the early menopause idea, 2, & that would be devastating if i was- we really are wanting another baby.
my hormones are definitely up 2 something :)  i'm supposed to see the Doc in sept., but maybe a blood test before then might be a good idea.
