I had a late miscarriage. I was 20 weeks when I went for my 2nd ultrasound and my doctor told me that there was no heartbeat and no fetal movement. They gave me pills to induce me into labour to deliver my baby. They think my baby died between 18-19 weeks. On August 4th I delievered my baby boy, Liam. After that me and my fiancee have been having unprotected sex and on September 9th I got my period. I had no signs I was getting my period and it lasted more than 7 days. Before I had gotten my period I had light cramping here and there, and after I stopped bleeding from the delivering I had spotting.I have been feeling sick in the morning lately. I have been craving chocolate lately. I just have this feeling I am pregnant and have been looking up pregnancy signs and symptoms. My last pregnancy was my first pregnancy and even then I didn't even feel pregnant, I had no morning sickness, no cravings but I did have a missed period. I think if I didn't miss my period the 1st time I wouldn't have known I was pregnant. I know it is possible to be pregnant and have no nothing to indiciate that you are pregnant. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests both negative. My first pregnancy my test came out positive. My only other sign from my 1st pregnancy that gave me an idea that I was pregnant was that I had discharge heavier and it didn't stop after a few days. I think that "period" I got on September 9th was not an actual period, but I don't know anymore. I am wondering if anyone has been through something similar and had a "period" after a miscarriage but they were pregnant and how did they found out they were pregnant?

Hi all, I wanted to know if there is a possibility that I may be pregnant. We have been using the pull out method and I have not had any concerns until now. My period is very regular, occurring the same week each month but I was two weeks late last month (period came on Aug 30th) and it lasted only three days, it was also light. I have been having some of the symptoms, fatigue, cravings/eating more (especially ice cream), frequent urination, headaches, etc. I took a hpt at the end of my 3 day cycle and it came back negative but I was wondering if I should wait and take another test at a later date. Any suggestions?
