Hi guys,

I'm new to this and I'm extremely confused.

Last AF was June 18th and as I was away from hubby, on return (about June 28th) was all over hubby.

Now AF hasn't come. I've had cramps since last Saturday night, exhausted (slept for 4 hours on Sunday afternoon and still went to bed at 10pm!), nauseous, extra saliva and my boobs hurt terribly - feel like they're full of lead and have purple/blue veins appearing on them!

Yesterday I had 3 meals before 5pm - which is rare for me! Normally I only eat twice a day!

Last night all I could smell was Panadol (I don't even know!) and it made me feel ill. I even threw up - not much though.

Taken two preg tests, both neg. Know when my mum was preg with me, she only got neg results and finally found out she was preg at 4 months!

Am I losing my mind or am I pregnant? Trying to get an appointment to see Dr on Sat...

(Sorry if this post is slightly long-winded! grin )

Certainly does sound as if you are, i guess you've just got to keep on testing. The Clearblue digital tests seem to be highly thought of on mn. It's expensive though isn't it!

Hey Londonlexi,
I'm not in England - am in South Africa and the preg tests I got looked cheap...
Hubby's trying to get a dr's appointment for Sat to do a blood test.
Fingers crossed!!!

Hi Chelsk.....How long are your cycles? If you are well beyond your period due date and you are testing negative, then the liklihood that you are pregnant is quite low. This is because by now your body would have begun producing HSG to turn a test positive.

My aunt had a smilar thing happen to her as your mother but it is worth keeping in mind that several decades ago pregnancy tests were not what they are today. Even the cheap ones one can get over the counter are much more accurate then what a generation ago would have been using.

However, if you are just past your period due date then there is a posibility that you are pregnant. Test again in 24-48hrs. And definitely confirm with doctor. These symptoms sound very promising!!

Best of luck!

Hi Babyboom,

My cycles are 27-29 days, I'm never late and I don't cramp during PMS, only on the first day of AF.

I calculate I should have got my period around the 16th or so... I also found out when my sister was pregnant (10 years ago), she also kept getting negative results with HPT.

Anyway, we managed to get an appointment this evening for blood work, so we're going... so I'll have an answer before the end of the night.

But fingers crossed.
