Im just wondering if i could be pregnant..
I know its unlikely because i have my period but i feel really different this time, and dont know if im just making myself believe i am because id really like a baby.
I started my period 3 days ago and it has been the same blood flow as normal but the night i got it, i couldnt sleep at all because i had such bad cramping, nothing like before. I also seem to have developed a little bit of a belly and i am quite a thin person( only weighing 58kg currently ).
I also seem to be suffering quite bad reflux/indigestion/heartburn type pains, this has been going on for about a week.
I have done a pregancy test at home and it came back negative but that was the night before my last period started, could that have effected it..
If anyone could maybe just give me there opinions that would be great..

I don't think you are pregnant. I know that you can psych yourself into symptoms of pregnancy and your period can be late. If you have a normal flow with your period then it is pretty safe to say you are not pregnant.

take another test....
If you still think you might be pregnant, you should really take another test. Foods you eat can also affect urine samples, so even a cheap blood test would tell you for sure. Especially if you drink or anything, it is always better to just be positive.

Not wanting to scare anyone, but my sister had her period halfway though her pregnancy, and then found out that she was 4 and a half months pregnant... she only weighed about 95 pounds, so it took that long for her to realize that the hardened lump on her belly wasn't just a consequence of college parties.
Luckily, the baby was completely healthy Smile

Why was she so skinny? Was she able to eat or just felt sick? Did she have bad back pains from hunger deprivation?

Could you possibly respond to one of my concerns?

I had unprotected sex a couple months ago. I didn't think too much of it but my period had came about 8 days late and it wasn't much of a period. Just mainly spotting and then one day I had a small amount of blood on my pad. I considered this my period at the time but my boyfriend wanted me to take a test just in case. So we took a test and got a negative. He wanted to be really cautious so a week later we took another one and got a white line exactly where the other line should've been. (I was using First Response). So I looked up things as to why First Response would have a white line. And it said that this type of pregnancy test didn't have evap lines so I got nervous. We tried to think nothing of it. And then a month later my period was 8 days late and we tested one last time and got a negative. My period came and it was also once again extremely light, not like my normal cycle. I'm having a lot of symptoms such as nausea, headaches, tiredness, breast tenderness, the bumps around my nipples are growing A LOT, and I'm having slight cramps in the bottom of my abdomen. Is there a possibility I'm pregnant and my HCG levels just aren't high enough? I've heard that women can have bleeding very much similar to periods the first few months of pregnancy so I'm not sure. Any responses would be very helpful!

Well what i think you should do is go to the doctors for a pregnancy test .Doctors or more then less accurate to tell if you could be pregnant or not.Some doctors may ask to do an ultra sound and see what is going on.My advice to you is to get an ultrasound because then they can see if you not only are pregnant but have something else .

i guess maybe you could see if you could find another doctor to see, or else try and find a local family planning clinic or something like that maybe, because you obviously need to find out. Or just go to your doctors and say you would like a blood test, and well basically demand one and say that not knowing what is going on is majorly stressing you out, so it would be benifical to your well being to just check please.
Good luck, hope you find out soon. Smile

HELP?! Pregnancy symptoms but just had period.
I just had the last day of my period on Sunday night, and it is now Wednesday. I last had sex [without a condom] on January 31 with my boyfriend, now ex... and This morning I woke up extremely lightheaded, and vomiting. My feet are freezing but my body is warm, and I feel very dizzy while walking around or even just standing up. My belly is bloated, and my back is sore. Everyone keeps telling me they don't think I am pregnant, but my pee is darker and my boobs have been hurting a lot lately. HELP?!

i wasnt pregnant in the end but i think i wanted so bad i felt like i was, then me and hubby had sex when i was most fertile, done all the right things and thought it would happen this month and nothing :O(
so again we will try,maybe trying to hard? i dont know..
i dont think it's that common to have a period and be pregnant, do a test if in doubt. could be a miracle.
and sore boobs are certainly a sign not sure about the wee?? cant remember. puking is a definite sign. was with me anyhow...good luck.x

ladybird...
is it spotting or your normal type bleeding?
all the symptoms you said you had about back pain,peeing alot ect...i have all them before im due on but sometimes the those same symptoms can be similar to pregnancy...ive just thought about relaxing now and just go with the flow,see what happens.kinda gets you down otherwise.

I never get the cramps back pain and peeing before a period the cramps have been really unusual and interfeered with my sleep. I have the usual pmt pains and bleeding normally now but dont feel good atall very tired/sleepy all the time, headaches have just started, it could be something else so i might go to the doctors towards the end of the week.

Thanks!

Could I be pregnant??
I didn't thin you could have a period while you were pregnant... atleast thats what I was told by my doctor. I was a week late and was having some signs of pregnancy, such as; really sore boobs, my boobs have gotten bigger, needing to wee constantly, feeling sick most of the time and dizzyness. I took 3 pregnancy tests, all negative. I started my period 8days late, and it was a normal flow but was quite dischargy, and my symptoms still havnt gone.
Is there a posibility I'm pregnant?

TMI i know but, i ovulated the next day, about a week later i started getting dizzy, very fatigued, had heart burn, my breast swoll up overnight, heightened sense of smell. well we thought i was preg so we got home test it came back negative then i started my period on Jul 12 but it was very light and i have these light cramps and backache. anyway it only lasted three days, boobs still huge, i am so bloated and now i feel this tightness in my lower abdomen, i still feel pregnant but test says im not should i do another one? i have two kids already, i knew i was preg with them way before i missed my period. anyone have this happen??? i am also new to the forum and think it is really cool!!

can i have my period & still be pregnant?
i am in the same boat and my situation is so confusing! i had sex on may 31st and my period was 2 wks late in june. when i finally started, i started taking the pill and i had a regular period in july and in august. (both earlier than expected) medium flow both times. I have taken numerous hpts and all have come back negative but my lower abdomen has gotten solid and i have gained about 5 pounds or more in the past month or so. i have lower back pains, nausea, headaches, constipation, and diarrehia at times, I just do not feel like myself! I am going to the doctor in a few weeks. but I am just curious, is it possible for me to be expecting??
