OP, I still don't trust your doctor.
Blood work?A blood pregnancy test should come back that day or the next at the latest, no need to wait for Friday, if you are not pregnant then any other blood tests would be stupid. You need a pelvic ultrasound of the preg test is negative.
Sometimes I think I am living in some alternate medical universe with the things I read on EB.

Did you show your Dr your stomach???
I would be wanting a ultrasound asap if my stomach was like that and pregnancy wasn't showing up not trying to worry you but if your not pregnant what is it something is happening pregnancy a cyst or something else.

My stomach didn't look like that until 6 months so I doubt you are about 4 weeks pregnant. Sometimes when you want to be pregnant you can convince yourself of all the symptons, trust me I know!

The 3 day bleed could have been implantation making you closer to 2 months pregnant. Then add the usual pregnancy bloating to that.
OP go get yourself another stick test and do it right not then post a pic please
eta- doctors pee tests are weak as. they buy the cheap ones in bulk.
eta.2 - that belly looks about 12 weeks to me though.

chloe, anymore news? I'm hanging to know what's going on for you!

I'd be going in for an ultrasound. Have you been unwell lately? Has your doctor discussed the possibility of ovarian cysts? Bloating and period changes can be symptoms of a cyst.
I'm guessing you desperately want to be pregnant Nothing wrong with that, but if your blood test comes back negative I would be demanding further testing because if your belly is not like that all the time, something is going on.
edit: Will just add, it doesn't take much to have 'pregnancy' symptoms, especially if you're actively TTC! When I was TTC each of my two I had symptoms all the time, and I get them nearly every month now, usually around ovulation time, even though I'm not pregnant AND on the OCP. I have 'pregnancy' symptoms right now - heightened sense of smell, nausea, pains, backache, etc etc. Impossible to be pregnant right now. Amazing what the mind can do, especially if one wants it to..!

TBH ,it sounds like you might have PCOS. I have had the same exact things happen, and mine was due to PCOS.
I would be asking for hormones to be checked as well as an u/s. Good luck

Interestingly I heard a story just like this on another forum. And her u/n was Chloe too.
What a small world.
