I was 9 days late for my last period, it finally came, it was dark, mostly spotting and only lasted 4 days. my usual cycle is heavy and last 6-7 days. for the past week i have been nausea/vomitting, headaches, constipated, i stay tired even at work, certain smells make me nausea like perfume, candles, airfreshner even suckers weird huh especially since i've never had a weak stomach and i can't even vrush my teeth oth the morning without throwing up. when i was first late i took a pre. test it was neg, so i blew it off now the other signs are bugging me, so i took another test it showed a pink line at first(very faint) but immediately went away, tonight i've started having sharp pains in my lower abdomen below my belly button and to the left and have recently starting moving into the bottom of my stomach, in the last 15 min. i've also started having pain in my lower back. could i be preg and losing it pleeeeeese help!!!!!!!

It is quite possible that you are pregnant. I am 24 weeks pregnant now, and the line on my home test was very light as well, although it did not go away. I took 3 tests over the course of 4 days and they all had a light line, so I knew I was pregnant. I was also having symptoms. I recomend getting a two or three package of the home pregnancy tests from the drug store tomorrow. It may seem like a waste of money, but if you have a pink line on more than one test (even if it is light) it can make you feel more certain and help you avoid more stress which is bad for pregnancy! If the pain does not go away, or gets worse, or if you have blood or pa__sing of tissue (like clots in your period) call your doctor first thing in the morning. You can call planned parenthood if you do not have a ob/gyn and they can help you also. Before this pregnancy, I miscarried and it was really upsetting. It was never a diagnosed miscarriage and my pregnancy tests said that I wasn't pregnant, but I knew. There was allot of blood and clots and pain in my thighs. I was nauseous and nearly fainted. Just remember that miscarriages so early are usually because the cells are not forming properly and it is not your fault! You can go on to have a healthy baby. I got pregnant the month after my miscarriage and she is a healthy little girl! Also remember that back pain and even pain in your abdomen can be symptoms of pregnancy and not signs of loss. Pregnancy is hard and takes a tole on your body, so if you are pregnant it is no wonder you are not feeling well! Also, bleeding during the first weeks is very normal and happens to allot of women. In either case, if you find out that you are pregnant schedule an appt with an ob asap to make sure everything is going well, and consider an appt anyway just to get checked out. All the best of luck!

I hope you're ok! I'm sure you will be though =) You might have symptoms because you want the baby so bad. Just keep trying! (It's fun to ;-) ) Post back when you find out what's going on! And feel better
