Hi Terri, I am not a doctor, but almost the same thing has happened to me. but it is perimenopause. perimenopause is good at mimicking your period by bloating you and making you feel crampy but no bleeding. the your body went through the motions but you did not have an egg to bleed out that's why your period did not come. i am experiencing my very first episode of this right now. i feel like you about the pregnancy test but, it wont hurt to take one. take care.
