had both positive and negative test.

My fiance and I are trying to have a baby, I was on birth control (depo) and haven't had that in my system for 8 months . My stomach feels hard, I've already have a lot of stretch marks, I can't fit into certain clothes & I've taken pregnancy test and had both positive and negative test. My mom and his mom are both concerned and my fiance and I are wondering and all hoping that I'm pregnant? Can anyone give me qny advice on what's going on?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i believe if you are delayed on your menses you can confirm pregnancy by getting serum beta HCG levels. If more than 5 then you are pregnant. If the less than 5 then you are not and other causes of menstrualal delay should be found out.

Take care.
