hey paige,well i cant say if you are pregnant or not,but i had all the sign etc and my periods were still there just lighter and shorter to usual.my belly even looked preggo and couldnt fit into my clothes,i know it wasnt fat as my belly was just rounded and firmer,the rest of my body stayed more or less the same size,this went on for about 2-3 monthe then over the last couple of weeks my belly has gone down and im back practically back in to my size 6-8 jeans(uk size!) so i guess i had a phantom pregnancy,it really messed with my head for a while there! now im going to just relax about the whole pregnancy thing.good luck and baby dust.x ps.have you been to the docs?

There is a true medical condition that some women have that mimics pregnancy. In everyday terms it's known as a "phantom pregnancy" but in professional/medical terms, i'm not sure what they call it. Apparently, you can convince yourself that you're pregnant, your stomach will begin to grow and you will have some typical pregnancy symptoms. The best thing for you to do is make an appointment with your doctor to find out what's delaying your period and causing these symptoms. :o)

It's called psudo-pregnancy, or false pregnancy. Yes, you can create these symptoms in your mind, but check yourself into the psyc-ward yet! It can even happen to animals! My mother-in-law's female dog got hooked up with her male dog while in heat. Her belly grew and she even started to produce milk! When they took her to the vet to remove the pups (b/c the mother was so old) they told her it was psudo-pregnancy! My husband and I tried for 4 1/2 years to get pregnant before it finally worked. (I'm now 5 1/2 months!) But I can't tell you how many times I just KNEW I was pregnant but wasn't. My sister-in-law even thought she was feeling a baby move but wasn't pregnant! And she's had two kids already, so you would think she deffinately knows what a baby feels like! It is not teribly uncommon. If you are still concerned, have your doctor do a blood test or an ultrasound. That's what it took to convince my sister-in-law that she wasn't pregnant! At least you will have a deffinate answer to put your mind at ease! Good luck!
