negative, but I have every last symptom I've had before!

I have two kids I know how it feel ls to be pregnant, my daughter just turned one so its still in my mind how I felt. I feel pregnant, heavy and my breasts are tender have a big appetite or sometimes none, I grow fast in the begining with my last two and I'm growing again and my belly button is even starting to get less deep, I've bled but it's been watery not a normal thing for me at all. It's a different man so I know different symptoms also. But the crazy thing is I've taken pregnancy tests and they're all negative. I get every last symptom I've ever it with my son and daughter. I'm so confused on what I should do..

Welcome to e health forum.

Chances of pregnancy in healthy woman, after a single episode of unprotected sexual intercourse is only about 20-25 %, provided the woman has a healthy and regular menstrual cycles, the intercourse occurred during the fertile period of her menstrual cycle (day 12 - 16 of the menstrual cycle of 28 days).
If you think you might be pregnant, a urine pregnancy test can be done and it will provide proper confirmation.
If your pregnancy test even after missing your periods for 1 week is negative, then the possible cause can be non-pregnancy related.
If your previous cycles were regular and without any variation, and the current change has occurred for the first time, then it is likely that stress or anxiety could be the cause of her missed or delayed cycles. Fear and stress of anxiety about pregnancy or guilt about having intercourse can also be contributing factors.
Stress certainly plays a role in suppressing the functioning of the hypothalamus, which controls the pituitary gland — the body's master gland — which, in turn, controls the thyroid and adrenal glands and the ovaries; they all work together to manage hormones. Any change in the hormonal equilibrium can hence affect the menstrual cycle.

Take proper rest and relax yourself. Stress can induce hormonal changes in the body. Destressing with having proper sleep, healthy balanced diet, meditation, practicing deep breathing exercises (yoga, etc) can be helpful and will keep your menstrual cycles regular. In most women who have such issues, it is likely that their cycles will become regular again in due time.

But if the cycles are persistently irregular, then other causes which cause hormonal imbalances (Eg Dysfunctional uterine bleeding, ovarian cysts and hypothyroidism) need to be ruled out. In such situations, it would be recommended for you to consult a OBGYN doctor, who can examine you and order a few tests (blood tests & ultrasound) which might allow specific diagnosis and proper treatment.

I hope this helps.
