ok, so LMP was 27th to 1st july but was spotting for last two days. Was with my BF from the 3rd thru 7th and we had unprotected sex but used the withdrawal method (not the best i know but was last minute trip).
I did a fetrility chart and according to it, i would have O'd on the 11th.

I been getting these symptoms

1-peeing a LOT but havnt been drinking any more water than usual
2-been really tired and sleeping a lot more
3-lower back pain
4-mild cramping/ache in my abs/groin
5-sore boobs (in the last couple days)
6-increased appetite
7-enough frikin gas to fill a fleet of hot air balloons!!
8-put on 4lbs
9-a white clean smelling discharge
10-my hair is now needing washed every day as its so greasy
11-noticed i been really hot and sweaty-gross!
None of these symptoms usually happen b4 my i get my period, usually just cramping and sometimes back pain on day 2.

I took a test today (the earliest i could test with the one i had but it came up BFN
I have a dr's appt for friday (day AF is due..
What you guys think?? I am going crazy not knowing esp as it was BFN today
thanks in advance for your opinons

At your doctor's appointment, you should request a blood pregnancy test.
There is no way you would have gained 4 pounds due to pregnancy already. Most women only gain a few pounds in the first 3 months.
You're not even late yet so I would try to quit stressing or your period will only be further delayed.

BTW- the "withdrawal method" is not a method at all. It isn't effective in the least bit. You would have been the same if he didn't.

I did request a blood test when i made the appointment but they told me they wont do that-just a urine test..which in my opinion is just the same as if i was doing it at home!! grrrrrrrr
ref: the weight thing, i put on weight really early last time I was PG and was just kinda throwing it all out there.

If you tell them you want a blood test, they should do one. You can always get one done somewhere else. A urine test would be a waste of money seeing as you're already taking those and they are coming up negative.
