I have had all of the early pregnancy symptoms from nausea, dizziness, food aversions, etc... and I swore I was pregnant, but then I started bleeding. I spotted for two days and then what seemed like a normal period began. The issue is, my period isn't due for another week and all of the tests are showing negative results. Is it possible that I am pregnant but too early to show up on a test?


avinson15 - August 18th, 2006 12:25 PM

I am in the exact same situation.......I am approx. 3 weeks late and am experiencing all kinds of symptoms......light nausea, my breasts appear larger, my nipples are darker, larger and are forming those little bumps everyone talks about, my stomach appears larger and it is noticable because I myself only weighed about 115 to begin with and of course the obvious.......my period is late. I have taken NUMEROUS HPT's and they all came back negative! I got worried and went to my doctor for a blood test, that also came back negative, I am almost 100% positive I am pregnant and don't know what to do. I have heard from so many people that it is possible to not even get a positive reading until later on. I guess I will have to wait. What is your status?


cj357 - August 18th, 2006 1:26 PM

I have taken 10 hpt's and still negative. My period isn't due until this Saturday so I am waiting until a couple of days after that to take another. I am spending a fortune!! I am almost convinced that I am not pg. I have had what I would consider a period since then so chances are that I'm not pg.

Hey- I am having the same problem. I am at least 4 weeks late-and I have never been late. I have taken 4 tests and all been negative. Today, I went to a planned parenthood-coudn't get in to my regular gyno. The nurse gave me a pee test and quick exam and said that I wasn't pregnant but that she didn't know what the problem was.I am not sure that she even knows what she is talking about-she said that there is no way the pee test could have been wrong!! I have had bad indigestion, extreme moodiness, hot flashes, I have gone up a whole cup size in 1 week. My stomach is bigger-first mushy and now really hard-easy to see on me too-I am 5'9 and wear a size 0-not for long at this rate!! It seems like I am pregnant-don't know what else it would be. Any thoughts?? I am seriously going CraZy!!!


cj357 - August 18th, 2006 4:18 PM

Hello sun-shine, it sounds to me like you could be pregnant. Another thing that could cause it (and this could be a stretch) because you are so small, a size 0, perhaps you don't have enough body fat to sustain regular menstral cycles? But you did say they are normally on time so that is probably not the case. I have been reading so many of these various women's posts about negative tests when they are weeks late and I think there may be huge variances in the level of hcg during pregnancies. Science is never exact. Good Luck and hang in there. You should know something before too long.


sun_shine - August 18th, 2006 4:56 PM

cj357-thanks for your input-makes me feel at ease knowing someone else thinks my symptoms sound somewhat like pregnancy instead of insanity!! I have definately sustained my menses-started when I was 11, now 24, never a single month been late!! I have not had a blood test done-they said it wouldn't be any different. I decided to ask my Mom about this and she said when she was pregnant with me-a long 24 yrs ago-the Dr said she wasn't pregnant-neg blood test too. She went back 1 week later- found out she was 2 months preg!! I am guessing that medical resources and reliability has improved since 1982?? but maybe there is a similarity. Anyone have a similar experience?? I really appreciate everyone's input!!

Hello. I'm in a similar situation as you ladies. I'm getting really confused about all of this. I am on cycle day 64. Yep 64, and I tested one week ago and it was negative. I know that periods can skip sometimes, but I haven't skipped a period in years. On Monday I had a few tiny spots of brown that by the end of the day was in total probably the size of a dime. (Sorry if tmi) Not sure what to think of that. I've been told it could have been implantation bleeding, if that were the case then the test last Sat. definetly would have been neg. I'm testing in the morning to see what happens. Oh and as far as symptoms the main thing that I've noticed is breast tenderness. I usually sleep on my stomach and that has been impossible for the last 3 nights. They are very sore. So the symptoms are pretty recent. Sickness a little when I get hungry. Oh and the smell heightening, totally believe that one. Today all I did was run some water from the faucet over some freshly boiled eggs to cool them off and I about died at the smell of chlorine from the tap water. I mean it was so strong to me I had to leave the kitchen. That seems nuts to me. Anyway, we'll see tomorrow.....maybe.


Lelah - August 19th, 2006 12:46 AM

Oh and sunshine, I know what you mean about hot flashes and tummy growth. I'm very little, too. Size 2 and 110 pounds, only 5.6 in height though. But I'm usually pretty cold natured, but lately and I mean like really lately as in the past two days I have been getting so hot off and on. Flash is a great word to describe it too, b/c it's not like I'm hot all the time now. Last night I couldn't even fall asleep with the covers on and my usually warm natured husband was cold and tucked in! About the stomach. Mine is slightly "pooched" out a little below my belly button and that has been there for nearly 2 weeks. Usually when I'm hungry my stomach seems to be shrunken in and I look really skinny, and after I eat it'll pooch out a little... Well now it never sinks in even when I'm starving or when I try to suck it in. And after I eat... wo... it's noticable. Just wanted to say, know how ya feel.


wishing4 - August 27th, 2006 4:37 AM

hello girls, i am currently in the same situation, although I havent seen my doctor yet. i feel that i a pregnant, had two hpt test that showed faint positive lines and 3 that are negative. having some spottings. i am a little bit concerned because 5 years ago, i was in the same situation. all tests negative and i was even having bleeding-menstruation. my hpt turned out positive after 6.5 weeks and i found out thru U/S that i had ectopic pregnancy. i am worried right now that its happening again.


Lelah - August 27th, 2006 5:34 PM

Hi wishing4, I don't know very much about ectopic pg's, but have read alot about women saying some spotting is normal during early pregnancy. I wish I could help you more, but I'm just as confused! Good luck, and try to get in to see your doc, I know that in itself can be a challenge!


beezie33 - August 28th, 2006 1:57 PM

I am in a similar situation... I feel better already having read all of your posts! I am 13 days late, and 3 neg. tests. My symptoms are tiredness and feeling sick after I eat! I haven't seen a doctor, but I just want to know... if I'm not pregnant, what can be wrong with me being THIS late! I've always been VERY regular... every 28 days after my period like clock-work... please let me know if anyone finds out that they are pregnant!!!

I'm 26 yrs iold with 3 children.I missed my period on the 26 of agust so I'm 12 days late. I've had 4 neg results and tuesday the ultrasound tech had the nerves to lecture me when she only has 1 child and i'v gone through 3 pregnancies. She basically told me i was crazy. I know it's not psychological because i don't want another baby now.My baby is only 16 months and i'm in school so i thought i'd take a break from being prgnant. My period is usually like clock work so i strongly believe that I'm pregnant. With my second daughter, i went to a clinic and had a urine test done and it came back neg. 2 days later, i felt sick but i believed the urine test so I went to the ER and they did a full bolld work on me and told me I wasn't pregnant. The next day i went back to the same clinic and tested neg again. the day after, i tested at home and it was positive. so even the almighty blood work can be wrong sometimes. i've been urinating often, having some nauseau and feeling fluttering movements in my abdomen and i really think i'm pregnant not crazy. i don't know what's going on but I'm going to have another urine test done today. good luck everyone and stay strong. It'll wor itself out

It'll work itself out. I just had another urine test done today and that was also neg, but I really believe that I'm preg and it's just not showing yet. I'll keep testing every 3-4 days and I'll keep everyone posted.

hi everyone i am feeling some of the same symptoms as avinson15, my last two/three periods have been late as is this one and they have been medium flow but are normally heavy flow i have put on more than 1/2 a stone in the last 2/3 weeks (was size 12 but now 14/16) i have taken close to 20 pg tests and they have all been negative bar one that came up inconclusive! im still waiting to get my blood test back but im so confused as i look almost five months gone and i can feel fluttering and a heartbeat also if i play a certain song the i feel the response to it in my belly please put my mind at rest someone thanks for your time. confused_86


beezie33 - September 9th, 2006 1:49 PM

OK so I am still late (About 3 and a half weeks) I am going crazy. I've taken a total of 6 tests... all neg. Now I think the symptoms are all in my head because of the neg. results! I am going crazy here. Has anyone tested pos. yet????


Lelah - September 9th, 2006 4:59 PM

I'm still late too. I just haven't been on here, b/c I have no updates to give. I'm starting to think something is wrong with me. I have an appt. w/ my PCM on the 18th and an appt. w/ my GYN on the 21st along w/ a scheduled u/s. Hopefully then I will find out some answers. Still testing negative on hpt's. I did have one day spotting (extremely light) on Aug. 14th and on Sept. 1st. Makes absolutely no sense???? Good luck to everyone else who is just as confused. Wish it were easier!!


confused_86 - September 11th, 2006 12:36 PM

i just got my blood test results back and it is negative! omg im so crazy right now as im still having symptoms and i can feel all of the movements! i really need some help on how to get a scan done if anyone can help please send me a message thanks
