Yes - I had false pregnancies throughout high school - I was never worried, though, because I was a virgin, with no contact whatsoever; but I had all the symptoms, including skipped periods, morning sickness, et cetera - even tested + on an HPT when I was 16. I stopped having the false pregnancies when I was around 19 or 20...which is why I didn't realize I was ACTUALLY pregnant this time around.

how long did they go on for? did you even feel movements in your stomach and start to get a pregnant looking stomach? did you ever see a doc ?

I got the poochy belly, but no movements - and by how long did they last...well, each "pregnancy" went about 2 or 3 months - and I experienced them from when I was 14 or 15 til I was 20 or so.

thanks for replying jamie.

No problem...odd, it never occurred to me to wonder whether it was normal or not; I don't even know if anyone else in my family experienced them. (My dog had a false pregnancy that coincided with one of mine, but I don't think that counts)

all the time when we were trying to get pregnant the secod time. i would miss my period, throw up, crave foods, b___st tenderness, cramping, the whole shebang. we'd get our hopes up and then the test would be negative. when we finally DID get pregnant i had NO syptoms. i couldn't believe it.

with one ovary can i have a baby


~cc~ - March 30

yes sunnyshine you can,it may be a bit more difficult to concieve though-if you want more responces to your question you should post it under one ovary or a different heading to phantom pregnancie-they are 2 totally different issues!

Hello, I had a phantom pregnancy last year! It wasn't a nice experience like anything is when it doesn't go right in pregnancy! I went to the docs for a dating scan and they said the foetus hadn't developed and that i would miscarry at some point! I went to my brother-in-laws wedding in London and started to miscarry on the morning of the wedding (fab timing!!) but it was just bleeding to begin with so i stayed at the wedding all day and night and the following day i was travelling back home anyway! Once i'd got home i started getting pains (contractions) so I went to the docs and they admitted me to hospital! I had a normal miscarriage and expelled the sac on my own! It wasn't a nice experience but the good news is it's not even a year on and i'm 20 weeks pregnant with no problems at all and a very easy pregnancy so far, so even though it's not nice, it's not the end of the world! Hope this helps you! If you have any more questions just give me a shout. My e-mail is [email protected] Nikki x x x
