My son recently turned a year old.
My husband and I have been having unprotected sex since December, I thought I might be pregnant once, however it turned out to be a false alarm.
My period for the past 3 months are:
May 17th, started light for 2 days, stopped then started back heavier
June 17th same thing (since my son that is normal for me)

However in July it started on the 15th, it was thick, with a little light streaks through it every other day, it stopped 2 days in which I figured it would start back, it didn't, it was just very light discharge that had little clumps of dark blood every other day, I didn't even have to use a tampon or pad until the 18th, then it stopped all together.
For the past 2-3 weeks my breasts have been sore, my husband hasn't noticed them being any bigger (They feel heavier to me) I haven't really been feeling any morning sickness unless I am in the car, which never happens, but last night the smell of cigarette smoke made me feel sick (just like my previous pregnancy)
Now, it's the 19th and my period hasn't came.
Last night and the night before I had really bad heartburn (I haven't had heartburn since I was pregnant with my son)
For the past 2 weeks I have had really bad headache's, but the past few days they have stopped.

The thing is, my breasts aren't as sore as in my first pregnancy, yes they are sore, they do itch once in a while, one morning I woke up and I was clawing at them because they was itching so bad, but they aren't as bad as before.
If I lay down the wrong way I have to move because it hurts.
I think I may be pregnant again, but I don't know if it's worth buying a HPT for, I have many times in the past and it has turned out to be a false alarm, but now, I don't know, I feel if I buy one today, it will be negative and I will get my period tomorrow.

Is it a good possibility?

Take a pregnancy test. That is the only way to know.

How is it not worth spending $5 to know?

You can buy the Walmart brand for less than 12. You could even got to the Dollar Store where they cost $1.

Or, if that is a cost issue (shouldn't be, if you are having a baby, you should be able to afford to support it) you can get FREE pregnancy testing at Planned Parenthood.

One pack of small diapers costs more than a single pregnancy test. If the cost of a pregnancy test is an issue, pregnancy shouldn't even be considered. Children are far more expensive than that.

Found out
Well, I took 3 tests, 2 was clearblue digital pregnancy test, one was positive, the other had an error, so I went and bought 2 first response pregnancy tests and it came back positive too, I have another that I am going to take tomorrow, even though I know the answer.

And Ingi, I found that last comment you wrote very rude.
Please remember that I can afford pregnancy tests, however if I am not 100% sure that it's a possibility then I am not going to go out and spend $20.00-$40.00 on tests.

I don't buy cheaper brands because with my first pregnancy I bought a cheap one at walmart, the it didn't work, I had to go out and buy more of another brand.

Regardless if you are a Mod, do not be rude to people who are request opinions from people.

Please accept my apology. That comment was NOT directed at you in anyway whatsoever. I have answered hundreds of the same/similar quesitons about pregnancy testing. It is a proven fact that even cheaper pregnancy tests work as well, and sometimes better, than the pricier brands.

My response was directed at lagringarican787 who claimed the cheapest pregnancy test she could find was $12. There are plenty of cheaper places to buy pregnancy tests, including the dollar store.

I never implied YOU couldn't afford a pregnancy test. The thought process in posting what I did goes like this, especially after reading and answering HUNDREDS of the exact same question.

Is it 'worth' knowing you are pregnant? YES. Is it worth $20 to you personally? If your personal answer is no, then don't buy the test. If your answer is yes, then buy the test. No one on the internet can tell you (or anyone else who asks) the answer to "Am I pregnant". The only answer anyone can find is in a pregnancy test.

I'm sorry it seemed rude to you.

ok now i find it very rude... because who said i couldnt afford it? i never said that....
i was just saying i never saw them that cheap, and if i could of when i took my first 3 that came our negative, even though i was pregnant, then 5 dollars is cheaper... wouldnt u likew to get sumthin cheaper too? just because i HAVE the money for it, doesnt mean i wouldnt rather find it cheaper... dont you like sales? or cupons??? you going to yell at people who have the money for the jeans but use a cupon to get them cheaper? you gunna tell them they shouldnt get them if they cant afford them?? that there not allowed to save money??
i would of loved saving money on all 3 of my tests that were a waste anyways since they all came out negative... 15$ is wayy better than 36$

Yes. No one should plan to get pregnant if they cannot afford to pay money for a pregnancy test.

Omg, get over yourself gringa. If you complain about the price of a stupid test then you'll complain about how much diapers cost (which in fact cost more).
