I'm 19 and never been pregnant before, but I'm now 2 months late on my period. My last normal period was the 20th of February. I thought I started on March 14th, but it was only slight spotting and it only lasted for half a day. I've taken a total of 15 home tests and two blood test, one qualitative and one quantitative (I'm not real clear on the difference between the two) and all were negative. But, during my best friend's first pregnancy all her blood tests were negative and the doctors finally did an ultrasound and she was five months pregnant... I've been sick for weeks, can't seem to sleep enough to keep me awake, I'm cramping in ways I've never cramped before, I've put on some weight (not a lot, but enough that my jeans are getting pretty tight), and my breasts are sore. Is it possible I'm pregnant, or could it be because I stopped taking my birth control in order to get pregnant?

I took to the pill for four months, I stoped taking it this month. My period began on march 22, I had sex on the 31 of march. The following day I had a lot of clear discharge (is this ovulation?. I wasn't supposed to have it yet) A few days ago I started feeling the same cramps I got on my two previous pregnancies, where I get cramps with sudden standing up, last for 1 or 2 seconds and disappear. Can the pill alter my ovulation cycle?. We practiced it before and worked, isn't too soon for the uterus to be stretching? We will happily welcome our new baby to our family. I just would like to know if there is the possibility or I need to visit the doctor for something else. Thank you

I'm hoping someone out there can help! I had a period From 11-16th of feb and had unprotected sex on feb 24th during ovulation. On march 6th, I had headaches, dull pain in my tummy and felt tired. My period was 3 days late in march, arrived march 14-19th and started pink/brown in colour and going to a reddish brown colour on and off which is unusual for me and was light compared to my usual af. I have been exhausted, bloated tummy, headaches, feeling off occasional meals all of a sudden and couldn't not tolerate alcohol. I had two negative hpt in the last week. Dont feel "myself" overall. Could I be pregnant?? Advice please xxxx
