Hey everyone,

I know no one can tell me if I am, just wondering if anyone has any advice or experienced the same thing etc..

My last period was 6/nov but it was very light compared to normal and only lasted 3 days when normally it lasts 7+.

I have had a one or two tests come up with a light positive that was sooo light that my DH wasn't sure if he saw it or not. Might of been evap, not sure!

I also look pregnant ..   (excuse the bra!) I am just standing normally (so not pushing out). I have a layer of fat then underneath if feels semi hard.

I am peeing every hour, on and off light cramps (sometimes a light stab), light back ache on and off, nausea without vomiting, dizziness, strong sense of smell and can not stand even looking at egg it makes me want to vomit when I see it, was fine a couple months ago.

Has this happened to anyone else and what could cause it if it isn't pregnancy?

Thanks  wink.gif

If you were pregnant and your last period was November, your uterus would be the size of a fist or smaller so that wouldn't explain the belly (unless you continued to have periods but conceived months ago, it is possible I guess). If the belly is hard you really should get it looked at by a doctor as you could even have a giant cyst on an ovary or something. Definitely get it checked out. Good luck!

Forgot to add.. I have been to the doctor last week and he did a urine test and it was negative. I have another appointment tomorrow to see if I am pregnant, for the hcg hormone to rise and get a blood test

No advice, but do keep us posted. This is a head-scratcher.

Looks like you are pregnant.

Why didn't your GP do a blood test last week?

I will defs keep everyone posted!!

Well, I told him all the symptoms then he asked when my last period was. He was said he wanted to wait a week for hcg levels to raise because the urine was negative. He didn't pay much attention to my symptoms after I told him when my last period was. I did say it wasn't a normal but he just like blew over it.

So OP. How'd you go?

#19 mayahlb

Posted 10 December 2012 - 01:40 PM

Only way to know is an blood test and then an U/s. I would get it checked out as you do look bloated, but I bloat before AF and can look pregnant. Nothing wrong with me and it is just a normal symptom for me.

Also I can't see a line.

#20 Libster

Posted 10 December 2012 - 01:40 PM

Definitely get a blood test. I've found that the most sensitive HPT's are First Response so you might want to buy one of those and test.

#21 missjoads1234

Posted 10 December 2012 - 01:42 PM

LOL OP Sorry but the two posters were making a joke  laughing2.gif

Hun if you were having multiples you'd have high HCG readings and a dark HPT by now trust me!
In my opinion you're prob not pregnant, id say its more than likely you're not. You're doc did a urine test and it was negitive, thats why he hasnt done any blood work. If you're correct in saying you're last period was early Nov, and you've done several tests nowand they're all negitive, give up on the pregnany side of it. Id be more worried about the bloating in your belly there - go and see another doctor, tell them you've had tests and pregnancy is ruled out, and perhaps get an ultrasound of your belly. Could be an issue with your bowel?

Hey everyone, thanks for the reply.

Well he asked if my AF had arrived, which it hasn't, so he is sending me for blood work and is checking pregnancy and other things that could affect it.

He did ask me about my last period and when I described that it wasn't 'normal', he said they it may of been a period but it may not of been.

I get the results back on friday original.gif !

I assume you've tried different packs of tests in case it was a dud box (but I guess that's unlikely if the gp did one too!)
