Ok Am I being unreasonable to think I might actually be pregnant??!

We have been trying for a baby, on and off for about 5 months now.

All preg tests have been neg except one which was touch and go but the next one was neg. Last one I did about 4 weeks ago.

I have had three periods since we started trying BUT have also been on and off the pill and we have changed our minds/changed again etc. In fact I have just finished a period today (but stopped pill about a week ago so probably not a real one IYKWIM).

For the last two weeks or so I have FELT A BABY MOVING IN MY TUMMY. I HAVE SEEN MY TUMMY MOVE - feels and looks exactly the same as when I was pregnant with DS.

DH just saw it and is totally freaked out.

Is this even possible ???!!!!!

I used to get this when I got stressed and got 'belly' problems - wind, stomach ulcers and IBS.

lubeybooby Sun 04-Sep-11 11:43:52

Could still just be wind, it does crazy things sometimes. I've been to the doctor before with what you describe and definitely wasn't pregnant despite being totally convinced I could see and feel kicking.. Only way to know for sure is to get checked out properly

I don't know. I don't want to burst your bubble (so to speak), but I get sensations in my tummy (not sure if it's uterus or stomach) that are exactly like early baby movements. Little pops. They are either wind or muscle contractions.

I have 2 DCs

GetAwayFromHerYouBitch Sun 04-Sep-11 11:45:35

I developed IBS after DS2

2BoysTooLoud Sun 04-Sep-11 11:45:37

Don't pregnancy tests not work after a few months of being pregnant?
[Ferocious wind is only other suggestion!].
Docs tomorrow me thinks.
Good luck.

TheProvincialLady Sun 04-Sep-11 11:47:53

Wind does that to me these days and no baby has ever resulted from it (praise heaven), sorry! Unless there is another reason to suspect pregnancy, it is very unlikely. Can you feel your uterus? You would be able to if you were far along enough to be getting baby movements.

I get feelings like this even though I know I'm definitely not pg.
Sometimes if you're hoping to be pg, your mind plays tricks on you.

If you've had periods and -ve tests, the likelihood is that you are not pg, but I suppose there is a teeny tiny chance.
Start taking folic acid just in case and go and see your dr. They may send you for a scan.

heroinahalfshell Sun 04-Sep-11 11:49:48

I know, I would have to be at least 18 weeksish right? To be feelings and seeing movement. I'm sure it's also too high up for that early anyway.

It's just bizarre !!!!

Oops!

TheProvincialLady Sun 04-Sep-11 11:52:45

Well go on then, feel your uterus now, live on the internet, just for megrin

heroinahalfshell Sun 04-Sep-11 11:53:16

I've already been taking folic acid as we have been trying (on and off).

It's actually seeing the movement that is odd - actually like a kick. Like a little patch of skin lifting and dropping a couple of times. And you know that "swiping" sensation.... yeah like that!

mousymouse Sun 04-Sep-11 11:53:51

I have that when I had beans for breakfast blush grin

only way to know is to poas wink

but if it was neg 4 weeks ago, it is unlikely that you are that far along to be able to feel a baby move

heroinahalfshell Sun 04-Sep-11 11:54:04

Ok TheProvincialLady - putting laptop down to lie on sofa and have a prod! Gimme a min....

GetAwayFromHerYouBitch Sun 04-Sep-11 11:54:19

I really hope it is!

Get to a GP tomorrow and let us know

heroinahalfshell Sun 04-Sep-11 11:55:34

Gosh I'm not sure. Something does drop off sharply just below my belly button but I'm not sure.

TidyDancer Sun 04-Sep-11 11:56:00

<marks place>

I LOVE a poas thread!

TheMagnificentBathykolpian Sun 04-Sep-11 11:56:27

I get this. I actually see and feel my stomach move. Sometimes sharp 'kick' like things. It's some sort of bowel carry on grin

Only way to sort this is to go to GP.

RandomMess Sun 04-Sep-11 11:56:33

Try the ice lolly or ice cold drink trick?

mistressploppy Sun 04-Sep-11 11:58:09

Wind. I used to get kicks all the time BEFORE I was pregnant. I'm now nearly 18wks and nothing grin

heroinahalfshell Sun 04-Sep-11 11:59:05

mistress :D

mistressploppy Sun 04-Sep-11 12:01:38

Make an appointment at the Doctor's now! Phone 'em up!

<realises it's Sunday>

CheshireDing Sun 04-Sep-11 12:01:41

I think to actually see your tum move it has to be much further on because the baby is tiny, whilst you would feel movements a bit you would not see them.

Sorry I agree with others probably gas or IBS, which can really mess with your insides, have you had lots of wheaty type things?

HoneyPablo Sun 04-Sep-11 12:03:54

Try clapping your hands very loudly next to your tummy. Do you get any movement in reaction to the noise?
My vote is on it being wind.
