smorehead if you go to the doctor they can do blood test and it will either come back that you are or your not i would go see a doctor for sure. Thats also to anyone that has gotten negitive readings on pregnancy test. I took a test when i was pregnant with my son and they read negitive but my blood test was positive and i really was pregnant

I know, oops! The Sunday after the 8th I kind of started a "period" its very light and only happens during the day and stops at about 5 or 6pm..... I wanna take a.pregnancy test but I.don't knownwhen my actual period is suppose to.start so I guess my question would be ods there a possiblity I'm pregant and when should I take a test?

hi every 1, I recently had my implant removed 05/07/11 as I am TTC, on the same night I had intercourse. Several hrs later I can feel odd sensations in my stomach and cramping. In less than 24 hrs, I start my period ! I have had intercourse every day and I am now experiencing very early signs of pregnancy ( swollen breasts/tenderness, cramping in stomach, my alveolar has got bigger/darken, increase in appetie and stuffy nose) Through out this time period I ave tried the ovulation test 3 times which has all come bk negative ! Can this come Bk negative due to me already being pregnant if I am ? I am doing a HPT in the morning and if it comes bk negative then my period is due 02/08/11 so i will do another HPT then ! Could I be pregnant ?? I hope so !!! :) Any shared similar experience ??
