If u were pregnant or are, has the right side of your stomach & above the belly bottom get hard. I haven't had my cycle since 7/16 & also have had 3 negative pregnancy test. What are the chances of me expecting & the test didn't catch it. Here are the days that I too the test:
Aug 22: Negative
Aug 30: Negative

I'm really confused. But, I do plan on calling my obgyn & making a appointment for bloodwork & ultrasound. Any advice would be appreciated.

Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A38578
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets confirmed, ultrasound scan done will help to confirm gestational age and viability. You can get false negative results with urine pregnancy tests done early during pregnancy, as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
