Convused???

I have been reading for hours now about early pregnancy symtoms, can't find anything usefull. I have been feeling something in my low abdomen, and everytime i urinate it feels like i have to go again after 5 min and that the pressure is still there. My breasts aren't sore but i have got some gas. i took 6 pregnancy tests over the last 5 days and 4 gives me a faint line like as if my eyes are deceiving me, but it's there. The other 2 just gives me a negitave, also saying all of the HPT are all different. I am going to take one on sunday again. Will let you guys know.

Same here...
I'm a little confused too. The possibility of me being pregnant is there because my partner and I pull-out. However, I don't think I'm pregnant because I've had negative hpts and I still have a light monthly. The weird thing for me: been extremely gassy the past couple of months; urinating more(partner even made it a point); more dizzy than usual; crazy dreams/hard time sleeping; drooling?; mood swings; smells are definitely stronger; did I mention EXTREMELY gassy?..lol. So, I'm actually looking for some answers because of the newest thing I've been experiencing. I do a lot of stretches on a exercise ball daily, but now when I lay on my stomach, there is sooooo much pressure around my pelvic area where the uterus would be. So, when I got off the ball, the pressure completely released and felt like a surge of blood went back into that area(almost like when you go upside down and then stand upright- you feel the blood drain back down). I also felt the pressure again when my partner was laying on me. I thought maybe that it was trapped air or something because I've been so gassy, but it has not gone away yet. Any ideas? I'm also trying to lose some weight..been a little successful, but my stomach has yet to go down.
I don't know it's just really weird!

Hmm...
Are you irregular? If not, then I'm sure being 4 weeks late isn't normal for you...Maybe early miscarriage or chemical pregnancy?

Hi there,

I am not sure if I am preggies, but want to be.

I have the "bubbles bursting" feeling in my lower abdomen all the time, a heavy feeling there as well, and dizziness. My breasts haven't been tender or sore, and I haven't had "morning sickness" as if yet. I haven't had these symptoms before, but thought i was pregnant a year ago, took a home preg test, and it was neg. don't wanna go through that again right now. Can anyone tell me if they are or was preg before with these symptoms?

It would be highly appreciated. Smile

my pregnancy story
hi everyone,
i'm 16 week pregnant. i didn't get my period in oct and i told a pregnancy test at the end of oct and it was neg. then on nov. 15 i went to the hospital to find out i was 4 weeks pregnant. i don't know why i didn't get my period in oct but u never know. i didn't expect that. and a faint line on a pregnancy test, usually means you're pregnant. when u get pregnant, u feel different, u might now realize why it is until u find out u r. i didn't starting getting morning sickness til i was 8 weeks pregnant. good luck to everyone! trust me u never know!

hi!
i am not supposed to start until the 19th of March, i have a lot of pressure in my lower stomach, im always tired, i feel crabby a lot, and i just dont feel like myself, me and my fiancee have been trying since we lost our last baby feb 14th of last year (09). the doctor put me on the shot so i wouldnt get preggo right away i only had one dose of the shot and i havent been able to get preggo since but i have had these symptomes before so i guess the best thing for us to do is to wait and see if we start and if not take a test and go from there. right?

Pressure..
Hi Ladies
I ended up on this website as it seems I also have similar symptoms! I reckon Im 4 dpo, My hubby and I would love a baby but are not putting ourselves under any pressure at the moment. I've been having pain in my left ovary area and pressure in my lower abdomen, it gets worse when I have to go to the toilet and eases a bit after but is constantly there like dull pressure, its worse when Im walking. I've got no other symptoms, no sore bbs, not overly tired even though I sleep alot anyways! Only today I thought I was feeling nauseus but don't know if Im imagining that one!! My af is not due til Feb 20th, thats almost two weeks!! I'll burst waiting!

reply to mdpl326
i had the same symptoms as mdpl326. i already have to kids and my husband got fixed 2 years ago so i was thinking well i cant be pregnant but i felt like i was. the presure bloating and cramping. so i went to the doctors it was a cyst on my ovaries that had bursted. the pressur and bloating and fluttering feelings was from the fluid of the bursted cyst and it is painful that is why i was cramping. i could have swore i was pregnant. he said the pain would last a couple more days and it could happen again when i ovulate next.

I had my second baby in July and I had a late postpartum hemorrhage six days postpartum. I needed two blood transfusions and it still took five months before I started feeling normal again. Now my baby is seven months old and two weeks ago I started getting lightheaded all the time. It felt like it did after my hemorrhage. Two days later I developed the pressure in my abdomen that everyone has been describing. I have been exhausted and I've had an increase in CM along with tender breasts. I've thought it could be another pregnancy, but it's hard to say as I haven't started my period yet. I've taken four HPT and they're all negative which has been a bit of a relief as I also have a three year old and they still don't know what caused the hemorrhage so I'm nervous about that, but if it isn't a pregnancy I don't know what else could be causing my symptoms and I hate going to the doctor unless I have substantial reason to believe I should go. I may just be anemic again, but does anyone know what could cause anemia symptoms so fast other than pregnancy?

pressure
I also have the same pressure in my lower abdomen.

Wait until you have missed your period. Then take a test. If you get a negative, wait at least a few day (try to wait a week) and then take another test. If you miss another period, go to the dr. You may still be prego or you may have a cyst on an ovary, urinary infection, symptoms of an STD, etc.

Make sure you're not looking at the test after the time has expired. If the test says to look at it in 3 minutes, look at it as close to then as possible. After that urine can evaporate making it look like a faint positive line.

Although VERY RARE, it is possible to test negative AFTER expected period and still be pregnant. I heard about a woman that was 12 weeks pregnant (per ultrasound) yet still got negative blood and urine tests.

anyone...please help
Hi everyone. I have been on a lot of sites and I am finding that a lot of people are in the same boat as me. I went off birth control in December because my insurance ran out and my boyfriend and I were practicing the "pull out" method. We had sex about 12 days after my last period. I immediately felt different. I can't explain it.It's been about 5 days now and I have had cramping in my uterus area, lower than normal period cramps and a lot of pressure. Sometimes I feel like a bubble or slight pain. I feel bloated and my boobs are slightly sore. I have had discharge but no more than normal and I didn't see the color because I had dark underwear on. I started to smell things today that my coworkers can't smell but sometimes that happens when I am getting a sinus infection (although I have no other symptoms of that). Also when I try and go poop the pressure increases but only when I try (lately I have been constipated). I have been tired lately but I am a special ed teacher so I am always tired.

All of you say you have similar things but what was your outcome? I wont get my period for another week. Any advice?
