I M Not Quite Sure

Hello, I've been having some unusual and slightly confusing symptoms and I was wondering if anyone else has had the same experience and what your outcome was. I'm new to the whole pregnancy thing... never thought I was pregnant before, and never tried, but I'm ready if this is what it turns out to be :) I did the unprotected deed on Nov.1st. From what I remember my last AF started around Oct 17th. I'm not on who usually keeps track... my AF has always given me signs it's coming and always comes at the same time every month so I never bother. On Nov 14th I got slight spotting for 3 days... very unusual as my AF is usually a steady flow and last exactly 5 days every time and this AF felt like it was coming too early in the month and there was no lining in the blood... in fact I didn't even need a pad or tampon as it was only happening when I whipped. A week later I started noticing weird smells... like I love pickles but this child at my work was eating them and I could smell them across the room and it made me feel very nauseated. At this same time I started getting headaches and waves of nausea which I noticed comes and goes through out the day but if it's going to hit strong will hit around 7pm at night. My friend suggests I'm pregnant, a hpt suggests otherwise. I also start noticing my mood swings... this week was really up and down for me, which has me worried as I am very in control of my emotions. The next week I came down with a 12 hour flu. So this to me seemed to be the reason for what was happening to me, but then the flu passed, and the nausea stayed. I also started to notice hot flashes which come and go through out the day, my br___ts have been swollen but not soar, and my digestive system is going out of whack! Could all be due to the flu. Still no positive hpt. This weekend just passed and I have been getting stronger nausea waves, my br___ts feel like they have water balloons in them and get jolts of what feels like electricity going through them sometimes. The nipples are also big and slightly darker. No sign of AF, every time I think it's happening it's just sticky cm. I tried to drink a beer this weekend and couldn't even get half of it down. Hungry but can't eat because I'm full... even though I'm not full! Still no positive hpt. I'm really confused here.... I keep getting negative hpt tests and can't think of what else it could be that I'm experiencing. I keep getting the feeling like I know these are pregnancy signs even though I've never been pregnant, is this all in my head? I guess I'm patient enough to wait it out and see what happens, but in the meantime a little support I think is what I need. If I really am pregnant then I think I would be just starting my 6th week? I'm just a whole lot of confused :S Oh and this past weekend (on Saturday) I got a slightly itchy skin on the top of my belly and my br___ts. which in my br___ts turned in to burning, and the other turned in to nausea. All while I was experiencing I think the worst headache of my life.

Also, my gums have been bleeding sometimes when I brush and my nose has either been very drippy or very dry, dunno if that makes any sense to anyone.... I guess what I really want to know is if I'm not pregnant, why would my body be doing this to me?!?! And if I am, why no positive pregnancy tests?!

I think it's possible that you are pregnant. But, most home tests only detect a level of 50 hcg (the pregnancy hormone). I know that I even had a negative blood test but was still pregnant, just not far along at all. Blood test detects a level of 5 in your blood, anything under 5, they will tell you that you aren't pregnant however the normal non pregnant woman has 0. I would say call your OB and talk to them about whats going on. They will send you for blood work and you'll know for sure either way. Good luck to you.

I don't have an OB and I detest my doctor. I think I might go to the clinic to get a test at the end of the week. I've never had these symptoms before... but I have a lot of people telling me it seems as though I am pregnant so I don't know if it's all in my head.... I can't fit in to my bra as of this morning so I dunno what to think anymore. The symptoms come and go, they aren't really steady but I know if I feel nausea it's usually in the evening. I'll probably end up going to the doctor... I smoke so I don't want to hurt a baby if there is one in there. Still interested to hear what others think in the meantime! I know I'm leaning towards the idea that hpt's aren't that reliable in some cases.

I took about 12 tests for my daughter (she's now 3) before I got a positive (even though I knew that I was pregnant) and when I was pregnant with my twins (miscarried in July)...I took about 5 tests. And with this pregnancy I think it was about 4. They are only reliable if you have enough of the hcg in your body. I wish you the best though. You can even call an OB in your area to see if they are accepting new patients (if that's what you want to do). Good luck Jmelyn.

I went to the clinic today and told them my situation. They took Urine and said the test looks negative. Then told me to wait a couple of days and go get blood work if I haven't started AF. I'm now starting to just want to know... even though before I was playing the waiting game. I don't get why my body would be giving me these symptoms if I really am not pregnant... I've never had anything like this before. It's quite the ride.
