Could I be pregnant?

Before I start I would like to apologise if I sound like a complete dimwit.
My periods are really, really light. As in, I could get away without wearing a tampon light. (I don't obviously!)
I've previously been to the doctors because of it and he has said it's down to the pill I take.
In April/May, I missed a few pills due to being ill (either forgot to take them or threw them up).
I'd started getting symptoms shortly after my almost non existent period. Sore boobs, nausea, feeling faint, slight cramps, fatigue etc. I took a test and it came back negative.
I've pretty much put it to the back of my mind but two light periods later, the symptoms haven't gone. I'm no longer feeling nauseous after I eat or drink but it does rear its head around 2-6 o'clock. I've been trying to lose weight (weightwatchers) but I've only been losing about a pound a week at most! My belly is actually getting larger and has increased by 1 1/2 inches over the past 3 months.
It's all leading me to think that it is possible but the negative test and periods obviously say other wise.
I'm due for a pill check up soon and want to bring it up but I feel like an absolute wally.
Please help! Has anyone else continued to have light periods/spotting in their early stages?
Thanks in advance smile

Did you take any other tests or just the one?

I would go and see your gp.

I took two. One when I started getting symptoms and the other a few days later. Both Negative

You may have been pregnant but too early to show on a test then. Maybe take another one?
