To think I am pregnant despite negative tests?

DP and I are semi-trying for DC2 - as in not actively trying to prevent. For the last three weeks or so I have felt pregnant. Sore boobs, mild nausea, mild cramping, utterly exhausted, 'full' feeling in lower abdomen. AF has not turned up for about eight weeks but I do have very irregular periods so that doesn't necessarily mean anything. Tests have all been negative.

I'd sort of decided it's all in my head, but then this morning (apologies for slight tmi) woke up to find that for the first time since I stopped breastfeeding DS1 in June, I've leaked slightly into my nighty. Things have been dry as a bone for months - stopped being able to hand express anything by July, and now I'm getting what looks like colostrum hmm.

But test is still negative.

WIBU to book a GP appointment to ask for a blood test? Then if I'm really not pregnant ask them to work out what the heck is going on? Or am I being a bit bonkers and wishful thinking?

A few years back a friend of mine had this and was certain she was pregnant despite several negative tests, turns out she was pregnant so it can happen. What time of day did you take the test? Your urine is more concentrated first thing in the morning so if you can take a test with your first wee of the day it will be more likely to pick up on early hcg levels

It is possible but there are also other possibilities so a blood test would seem like a good first step.

Congratulations! I came on to say that I knew I was pregnant 2 weeks before any test came up positive, so trust your instincts. Hope all goes well.

Ha, well done!

Sometimes the HCG starts off reeeeally low so even under normal circumstances, it doubles too slowly to show up on a test for ages.
