I'm scared I might be pregnant

Hello everybody,
I'm scared I might be pregnant. My last period was on September 25 2012 .I've kept track this year and I've had 2-27 day cycles 4-28 day cycles 2-29 day cycles and 1-30 day cycle. On cycle day 14 i had the egg white cervical mucus that i thought was an indication i was or was about to ovulate. My boyfriend and I had sex on cycle day 18 but it was just after midnight so I'm not sure if I should count it as cycle day 17 or 18. On cycle day 21 I started have cramps and I have had them pretty consistently since then. I wasn't sure if I was just have pms a little earlier then usual or if my all consuming fear was manifesting itself into symptoms. I am now one day late on my period. Yesterday I took a home pregnancy test but it was not first thing in the morning and it said negative. But from research I've done on the Internet many women get false negatives. I tend to be a worry-wart personality so I'm trying to tell myself that im over reacting and that I'm only one day late but I've basically been in a panic since I started having cramps 10 days ago. I'm thinking now that my stress could be delaying it but most of the info I'm finding says that stress can delay your ovulation but not your period. I started feeling nauseous about 2 days ago and haven't felt better since. My breast are a little sore but nothing more then I would usually be experiencing at this time.i plan to take another pregnancy test tomorrow morning.

Get a blood test done I had to have one done. And it showed I was very early. Don't stress it will be ok

I had many false negatives with one brand of test. Try switching brands or wait a little longer. I know it's hard but it will be okay :)

Thank you very much! At this point i know that i can only really wait but i guess i felt kind of alone and wanted to talk about it.

which brand was it that gave you the false negatives?

First response. It was funny, because I was seriously in the bathroom and I peed on 2 first response ones, and 2 clearblue easy tests, and the first responses was negative and clearblue was positive. And now I'm 13 weeks :)

I kinda just knew. And then my breasts were hurting, and they never hurt before. And I had to pee a lot. But I thought I was going to get my period for a while just because of the cramps. Oh, and I was emotional as all get out. I felt like no one loved me lol

Avatar universal

Avatar universal

In my situation, i always used to freak out about being pregnant. But this time around i just knew i was i did first response a day after my missed period at night and sure enough i was pregnant this time. I was actually calm and said to myself...yup this time its real. I never understood when women would say "you just know". Well now i know what they meant. Lol good luck hun!
