For months now my period has been light whem it normally is heavy.Last month my period was very light again and I wondered what is going on and I have been having a lot of pregnancy symptoms like backache,increased fatigue, nausea, slight cramps, pain in my legs, frequent unrinating ,sore boobs that are getting a lot bigger,runny nose with snuffles but i dont have a cold, darkening around the nipples and increased amount of discharge (sorry if tmi) but the thing that is confusing me is I've had a negative pregnacy test and I'm currently waiting for the results of my blood test. But my stomach has started growing and it looks like I have a bump.
Does this look like I'm getting a bump ?

Not with a negative pregnancy test.

It does look like a pregnancy bump. When did you do the test? If its very recent then i would be very worried about what was going on inside me

I think some people get negative tests even a few months into pregnancy so I think it could be possible. You will have to wait for blood results though.
This could just be bloating so no one here will actually be able to answer only guess!

I took the pregnancy test 2-3 weeks ago

Do another one then. A fat tummy could be water retention or surplus of mince pies!

XstarlightX101 Sun 13-Dec-15 20:53:44

I haven't been eating a lot of fatty food's lately as I just don't fancy them
I've been eating lots of meats and veg , fruits and lots of massive portions of salads

It's unlikely with the test being negative.
There are various medical reasons why your tummy could be swelling so get checked out once you have the blood test results.

Blimey, the "Am I pregnant?" threads have now reached new dizzying heights.

I hope "Is this fat or a baby?" is not the start of a worrying new trend on MN.

1. Do another test
2. See your doctor

What goodnight said.

How the fuck are we supposed to know what's causing that? You're waiting for the results of a blood test - surely that will be a better indicator than MN?


LouLou030783 Sun 13-Dec-15 21:25:17

I used to get this all the time doc put it down to ibs, unfortunately no one here can give u an answer x

SirChenjin Sun 13-Dec-15 21:30:57

Yes, you are definitely pregnant. No doubt about it.


With all due respect, don't be daft - how on earth are we supposed to confirm a pregnancy over MN?! Wait til you get the results of your tests - I hope they are what you want them to be.

When I posted this post I wanted advice and people to comment if they have been through the same thing that all

IguanaTail Sun 13-Dec-15 21:34:16

You've been given advice. Do another test or go and see the doctor.

Boredofthinkingofnewnames Sun 13-Dec-15 21:36:18

Why wouldn't you just go and buy another test?

SirChenjin Sun 13-Dec-15 21:38:50

It honestly doesn't matter if people have been through the same thing - that still wouldn't enable us to confirm a pregnancy (or otherwise).

You really need to wait for the test results unfortunately, or as others have said, do another home test.

Alice1983 Sun 13-Dec-15 21:41:28

People are being a bit straight with you. Nevertheless as OP said it does look like a pregnancy bump or IBS. If you dont want to wait for the results, you could go for a scan privately x

goodnightdarthvader1 Sun 13-Dec-15 21:56:47

Even if 10 people had said "Oh, yes, that happened to me, and I was pregnant" that would not in any way shape or form relate to you and your current condition, because everyone is different.

As a pp said, you've had advice. Hope you get the result you want.

The title of your thread is 'Am I Preg?'. That's a closed question. You then ask if you're getting a bump.

Yes - you're pregnant. Congratulations. fhmm

Brummiegirl15 Sun 13-Dec-15 22:08:18

You need to do another test!! If it's negative you aren't pregnant

Runningupthathill82 Sun 13-Dec-15 22:53:57

Maybe there should be a separate "am I pregnant" topic. There are more and more of these all the time, and the OPs NEVER seem to come back!

goodnightdarthvader1 Sun 13-Dec-15 23:06:45

Running, I feel these topics would be better on the conception board, I dunno. I've even seen "Am I Preg?" threads in Chat! I understand the excitement but it's a redundant question as no one can answer it accurately.

IguanaTail Mon 14-Dec-15 06:06:26

Even 125 midwives, gynocologists, and obstetricians with doctorates in "Tummy Sizes", at a special "All Day Silly Questions Conference" wouldn't be able to answer your question, OP.

Randoms on an Internet site will hardly be able to.

If I send in a photo of my forehead, could you tell me if I have a headache?

GoApeShit Mon 14-Dec-15 06:15:53

I started an AIBU about these 'Am I Pregnant?!' threads recently. So bloody many of them. I understand the ones where the OP is, par example, at work and unable to go out and buy a pregnancy test, is a week late and feeling sick etc...they can be quite fun especially if they turn into 'live' POAS threads fgrin

But these kind of threads? Please. Toddle off to netmums.

I guess one key point would be, have you had unprotected sex? Or are u trying to conceive?

I think sometimes when ttc we can become super aware of our bodies which can lead us to over interpret 'symptoms' which we've just not noticed before.

Hope your blood results come back soon with some good news (whichever that would be for you )
