ANY help please! I feel like I am going crazy. I have so many symptoms of pregnancy. Unbelievably sore br___t, dark circles around that are growing (my husband noticed too), I have been natious off and on for about 5 days, so bad one morning I threw-up four times, sometimes dizzy, blurry eyes,tired, emotional, food makes me feel sick yet I'm always starving, Really bloated!! Now I have a funny taste off and on in my mouth ?? I am about a week late. Last MS was 9-12. I am on Clomid. I have taken many HPT and now a blood test that just came back negative today..........I am SO confused. I have been pregnant before ... twins ten years ago and a miscariage 6 years ago. PLEASE help.Is there any hope left that I am actually pregnant...the nurse says No. Thanks !!

Yes to my experience you are but just wait for a couple of days to take a home pregnancy if results are negative try again. Maybe your hormones were low Good Luck!

Denise, ask the nurse whether the blood test was quant_tative or qualitative. One is less accurate than the other. ------ Blood pregnancy tests can be quant_tative as well as qualitative. A quant_tative blood pregnancy test (or the beta hCG test) measures the exact amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the blood. This means it can pick up very small amounts of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), making it a very accurate test. A qualitative human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) blood test gives a simple yes or no answer to whether you are pregnant. This test is more like a urine test in terms of its accuracy.

Also, I have read that Clomid affects women's periods either by delaying them or shortening the duration. Did you just start the Clomid within the last few months or are you familiar with it and its effect on your body?

Thank You for your responses. Yes, I have been on clomid many times over the past 12 years and have never had symtoms like this. I don't know exactly what blood test was done, but she said it fell just under 5 and that that meant Negative. I told my husband and he too is in shock. If you knew me and saw me, I just look different already.

If it fell JUST under 5 - u could also be JUST pregnant! When I had my first blood test it also fell under - the male nurse said technically he has to say it's negative but technically there is a hCG count (although barely). I went back a few weeks later for another test and my hCG level did rise. I asked my dr. how the first test could be so low and he said I was probably JUST pregnant or my hCG levels grow slowly.

When I had my hcg count done they told me anything 2 and under is considered not pregnant, you may be pregnant give it another week if nothing go and have another test done. good luck

Thank you all for such sweet support. The Dr.'s office called just a few minutes ago and said almost the same things. That it does seem alittle "supicious" to have all these symtoms,although they "doubt" I am. They want me to wait it out atleast a week if not even 2 1/2 weeks until I miss another cycle and if I'm still having symtoms, come back and re-test. My husband and I decided God is really the only one that knows right now and if I am ,like we think, then I better just try to do my best not to take or do anything stupid and play it safe. ( ofcourse i woke up with another headache :-) ) We won't tell anyone I "might" be, except for a friend that straight out asked me if I was two days ago...weird Hu!! Anyway, I will keep checking in and try to let you know how it turns out to help or support anyone else in this situation. Thanks again!!!! p.s , I KNOW I am not the only one in this "boat"... the only encouragment I can say right now is NEVER give up... The Dr's ( a specialist in infertility) told me I'd never have children... and although it has been Very rough and we did loose one, I praise God for the miracle of my nine year old twins... have faith, God still does miracles.....
