Feeling pregnant is different for everyone. You might have loads of symptoms, you might have none. If you think there's a risk you might be pregnant, because you were TTC or there's potentially a contraception fail, then I'd suggest you work on the basis you are pregnant for now, ie don't go and get completely hammered. Try testing again in a week or so.

thanks for responding, it would be lovely if i was but nott knowing is driving us insane, still no period & i did a test today which came back invalid, my boobs are awfully sore like holding up 2 bags of sand confused thanks again for responding smile

Sore boobs sounds like a sign of possible pregnancy to me. I had a pregnancy last year, which sadly ended in MC, and mine hurt like hell. How many tests have you done? I read that trying with the first urine of the day straight after you wake up is a good thing to try if you suspect a false negative.

I'm in the same situation at the moment. Period was due last Friday, and no sign of it. Did a test yesterday, which came back negative. My boobs, unlike yours feel pretty normal! It's a horrible feeling to think that your body is playing tricks on you, and you're right about the not knowing either way, it's the worst sad

Ah am very sorry to hear that, & im going to do another test on monday so fingers crossed for us both, it really is upsetting. Have you had neg tests & iv been feeling very "off" very hard to explain confused

I think I'll do another test in a few days too unless my period turns up over the weekend, which I suppose is a possibility. Bodies are mysterious things! Good luck with your test, I hope things work out the way you're hoping!

I did a test when I was a week late and it came back negative I was then so convinced I wasn't pregnant I went to the doctor to find out what was up the first thing she did was give me a test but typically I couldn't go to the bathroom and I left it til I was three weeks late and went back they sent me for bloods and to her a urine sample long strong short Irvine sample was posstive even after a negative , give it a week and test again.

Urine !! Not Irvine !

Having had a similar disposition myself - with periods, lateness, sore boobs, etc. If the test is negative, the chances are, it really is negative. Especially given the discharge.

Well, for me the mystery is solved. Cramps eventually turned into period, albeit a week late. Given that I didn't have the sore boobs etc, I think my negative really was negative.

How are you getting on dreamcatcher?

dreamcatcher395 Sat 14-Jun-14 22:10:13

Unfortunatly mine was same, i was so convinced, sad hope you have success in the future xxx

mollywobble Sun 15-Jun-14 02:19:14

Sorry you're disappointed. Bodies can be cruel things when it seems like they're playing tricks on themselves. At least arrival of AF means no sinister reason for lack of period? That's what I'm telling myself at least. Hope for future successes for you too!
