Well, if I am pregnant, I am now 27 weeks along. I had my second ultrasound which showed a normal sized uterus, and a very thin endometrium days before my period was supposed to start. And my cysts have resolved themselves.
My doctor has screened me for so many things: hypothyroidism, diabetes, cancer, cysts/tumours on ovaries, breasts, pituitary and adrenal glands, PCOS, Celiac's, Anemia, Vitamin Deficiencies, Kidney Disease. I was referred to an OB/GYN for my lack of a period (the last 3 were only 6 hours of spotting), and she checked my cervix for ablation and blockages (to which there are none), she also checked my abdomen for m es, and used a dilation tool to touch the inside of my uterus and induce contractions. She said that I should count myself blessed that my period is so light. WTF?!?
My breasts have grown 2 cup sizes, my nipples are darker and I have had some leakage, and I have gained 10" across my lower abdomen, new stretch marks, and my hips have widened, but have not gained a single pound. I still feel movement in my abdomen, have had rib cage expansion, and felt strong "kicks" to my ribs and spine. I have also lost a mucus plug (which can grow back), and I bought a fetal doppler and can hear what sounds like a placenta, as well as a heart beat of 136-145 bpm when my own is sitting at 78-89 bpm. But... apparently I am not pregnant. So, I'm trying to put that out of my mind as much as possible. If I am, I'm definitely carrying in my back, and we'll see if the baby drops in about 2 months time. But at this point, I'm thinking that my body is just confused.
My dizzy spells, nausea and headaches have gotten much worse though, to the point where I have been tempted to go to the hospital. I am now being screened for an adrenal deficiency called Addison's disease. This can cause symptoms not unlike pregnancy (nausea, dizziness/faintness, fatigue, cramps, abdominal pain, frequent urination, food cravings, heightened sense of smell, confusion/lack of concentration, loss of period, mood swings, irritability, headaches, backaches, darkened pigmentation of the skin). It's a rare autoimmune disorder where the person has an inability to cope with stress due to insufficient cortisol production, and left untreated can be potentially fatal. However, it is manageable with steroid replacement medication. Because it is so rare it is often missed and/or misdiagnosed. If this is what it really is, I'm sure that all my worrying about an undiagnosed pregnancy has not helped my health at all, BUT... pushing the doctor for an answer may have just saved my life. I'll keep posted on what my officially diagnosis is when I finally get one.
