Hi everyone, I'd really really appreciate some feedback here. My last period started on August 27th -- I'm not totally regular so it's hard to say how late I am.
But I feel pregnant -- I had pulling type cramps for about a week when I was expecting my period, now I just have mild cramps on and off. I'm burping a lot, I have been tired and dizzy and have creamy whiteish discharge that looks very different than normal (sorry TMI), my boobs are sore and heavy.
BUT all the tests I've taken have been BFN. I took one yesterday and just decided I must be imagining all this. But where is AF and what's with all these symptoms? Is it possible to still get BFN's this far into it?

athena, we are in the same psition, i expected Af to come in the past few days, but my cycles are irregular, i feel symptoms of pregnancy like side pains, and cramps. The cramps actually started about a week ago, which is wierd because i only get cramps the day that my period comes. I keep burping and i'm salivating like a dog!!!! sometimes i feel like i'm making everything up because i've taken 3 hpt. and all were negative!!! I keep thinking oh, it was probably too early,!! its driving me crazy, i don't know if i;m dilusional or what!!! i should have gotton a positive by now, right?

yes it is possible to still get bfns..i've ehard some women on here say it took up to 2 months .it just might be taking awhile for your hormone level to get high enough to show in your urine .if that makes sense.good luck.

Thanks gals, I feel better. I'm going crazy too... but I guess I'll just keep on waiting... and keep on testing. Keep me posted Jennifer!

I am in the same boat, symptoms are increasing, not decreasing. Just a note to all of you ladies, Dr.s go off of your lms, but you are actually 2 weeks gestationally pg than that. The actual gestational age of the baby. So, take 2 weeks off and that would be about how far along your baby's actual growth is. No, you aren't stupid or crazy (neither am I) Unlike a lot of you, I was not trying, nor do I want to get pregnant. I have 6. But, if I am, I want to give my child the best care possible. I have had 1 digital say I am and about 15 reg. hpt's and blood test on 9/20 say neg. Yet, my symptoms are increasing. Just 3 days ago I developed the white bumps on my breasts. I also just started have contraction feelings after sex. But still no AF. My lmp was 8/10 and like you, I am irregular. I just spoke to a nurse who said, that I sound pg to her. But my dr. is a little frustrated with me for making him do so many tests that have said neg. Going off the last time my hub and I had unprotected sx, i would be 4 to 5 weeks gestational (not lmp) With my first 3 babies, I didn't get a positive hpt even at 7 weeks, they finally did a blood then, and it came back pos. But I have no clue if the blood would have been neg a few weeks before that or not. Don't feel stupid, your body is telling you something, What it's telling you is the real question. Sorry so long!

Wanted to bump this up. Any news Jennifer? Took a hpt yesterday, still negative so I'm going to get a blood test tomorrow.
Here's another thing -- today I feel really weird, sweating, chills, hot flashes, can't breath, kinda lightheaded. It's similar to a panic attack, but it isn't. And I almsot feel like my blood pressure is really high. Anybody have these kind of feelings?

Athena - October 9th, 2005 9:01 PM

Thanks Danielle! It's great to hear stories like that -- makes me think I might not really be going crazy! :-)

Tonight i was making dinner, (I'm the person with 6 children NTTC.) I went to stir up the can of beans and almost threw up all over. Right after i got light headed and thought I was going to faint. Still don't understand. I'm scared to call the doctor, if I'm not pg (which I really feel like I am) then what is it?

Danielle - October 10th, 2005 12:52 AM

my doctor also said they make mistakes on the blood test and there really not as great and accurate as people make them sound, so don't get mad if you get a neg. blood as long as you don't have af there a chance

Athena - October 10th, 2005 11:10 AM

Holly -- have you taken another test? If one digital said you are then it is probably accurate.

Holly - October 10th, 2005 11:34 AM

Hi Athena,
I took it on 9/19, it definately said Pregnant, I was so shocked I made the pharmacist look at it. YUP, but the next am, 2nd test (i wanted to show hubby) from same kit said neg. Then at the dr. that morning said neg, with a neg blood test. He told me to stop thinking about it. The prob is I wasn't. I have 6 children and I want to go to school next semester. These sympts found me, not vise versa. They keep getting stronger, but every test I've taken says BFN. I just don't understand it. Last night was more than enough confirmation for me, but the Dollar Tree test I took last night and this am said BFN. I am a little scared to call my dr. I made him give me so many tests. The thing is, I have been pg 9 times, 6 living and 3 m/c's. I KNOW when I'm pregnant. If I hadn't had the tests, I would be telling everyone I am pregnant. Every symptom is there. And coupled with the fact that I am not looking to be pg, but wouldn't have a problem if I was, I really don't think it's all in my head. That is why I came to this site. So many women having the same thing going on. Maybe something is in our food? LOL.
