Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A21947
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms (delayed periods, abdominal cramps, vaginal discharge, sore nipples, bloating) could be suggestive of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests can give you false negative results at times. Since you have had history of miscarriages in past, monitoring serial blood/serum HCG levels would help. A steady rise in levels would confirm that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If the levels are found to be lower, then you will need to be put on external supplements to prevent miscarriage. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for further evaluation and management. Be in regular follow-up with your gynecologist/obstetrician.
Take care.
