Hello All, I'm new to this but have been scouring the internet in search of answers to what i'm going through. My menstrual cycle is usually like clock work but this month I have been two weeks late. I am displaying lots of pregnancy symptoms - * Extremely tired all the time and i'm usually full of beans! * Constant nausea and lack of appetite * Dizziness * Sore breasts * Really bad bloating, literally feel swollen * Very emotional and sometimes irritable * Headaches. Feeling really happy & excited I thought I best do a test..negative. Took several as the days went on, all negative! On day 9 I saw the nurse who took a urine test which also came out negative. The nurse seemed confused and told me that there are women who's pregnancies do not show up in hcg tests as they carry low levels of the pregnancy hormone so she suggested that I waited a week then went back for a blood test which is more accurate. On the night of day 13 I started to get aching in my lower back. On the night of day 14 I started to bleed & the back ache got a bit more severe. Now on day 15 the bleeding is light & i'm not in any discomfort at all. I still can't eat properly, I feel extremely tired and bloated and this just does not feel like a period...especially when it's 2 weeks overdue! Just really confused as i've never felt like this before. I also have polycystic ovaries so i'm not sure if this is any affect from that. Is anyone experiencing the same or have any thought please? They are doing the blood test and may have the results by Monday but just hate all this waiting. Especially with me having PCOS because if I am pregnant I will need extra care and supplemements so want to know ASAP. By doing the tests online I worked out I could be about 6 weeks pregnant. Pleaaaaase help!!!

Hi and welcome Sorry never had any experience with any of the things you are describing (teehee with my last pregnancy I was already 9 weeks gone before I realised I was pregnant with none of the signs). I didn't want to read and run though. We are here to "be a shoulder" if you want to rant and I am sure someone will be more knowledgeable than me Good luck chick hope you are pregnant xx
Thank you so much just for replying Well the bleeding has stopped now so that was only 2 days of light bleeding which can't be a period after been 2 weeks overdue surely?? Anyway I had my blood test this morning so should have the results early next wekk. I have got absolutely everything crossed that I am lol. Have even had people ask me if i'm pregnant & been told I look it?? I would have taken that as an insult if I wasn't so deperate to be pregnant. Will keep you informed and thanks again xxx P.s got a headache today, very tired, sick & bloated, oh joy! Will not moan once if all this is worth it & I find out i am! lol
Thank you so much I really am trying to stay positive but don't want tp build my hopes up. The strange thing is my stomach is bery bolated and has become quite rounded Send me some baby dust please everyone!!! lol xxx
Hi All, A blood test confirmed today that I am not pregnant So it's back to the gyno to see what's going on in there I was so convinced I was pregnant with all the symptoms I had and my huge rounded stomach!!!???
But hey, back to the drawing & hopefully better luck next time.
Wish me luck ladies, hope all of your little angels are ok xx
Just to let you know that I have just come back from the doctors and they are sending me for a scan and will be doing blood tests to check if i'm ovulating or not. Just so glad they are doing something Hope you are well x
