I last had my period on the 17 March and then strangely I had a weird light bleed on the 7th April for 4-5 days? (my periods are regular 28day ect) , this happened 1 week before I was due on my periods!
Any way the 14th April have been and gone and haven't had a period. For the last 4 days I am constantly getting dizzy and light headed and severe head aches? I have v sore boobs n weeing alot n feel sick most of the time when I smell food and always after eating something. But I have done loads of test n they say negative?
Can anyone help with answering why I had a weird bleed n why tests say I'm not pregnant?
My husband thinks I am pregnant he reckons I have a glow?
I have had 6 mc's (going to the doctors on Tuesday to hopefully have some test done to find a reason)
Could I be pregnant and when should I next test.
I hoping I am pregnant. I pray to God that I can have one more child! Tia xx

Hi @llovechocolate111 - how are things going today?

I had a really similar experience a few months ago. All the symptoms, period was 6 weeks late etc. But plenty of negative tests. I eventually got a blood test from the GP which confirmed I wasn't pregnant. I randomly came on a week or so after that. I was pretty gutted.

The uncertainty is horrible, maybe it's worth seeing if your GP can do a blood test to let you know and maybe give you some more guidance about what is going on?

(Although the GP did the blood test they weren't able to give me any more information on why my period went AWOL for six weeks.)

Best of luck flowers

Thank you for ur reply. I really do want to be pregnant. I have an appointment on Tuesday so I will be asking for a blood test did you have to wait long for the results? .

Mooana Fri 20-Apr-18 13:05:43

The results were back the next day! Keeping everything crossed for it. It's so stressful when you're so hopeful but still uncertain. I really feel for you. I'm so sorry for your losses as well flowers

Keep me posted and hoping for good news for you xx

I did a test today n came back negitive 😯 but my boobs Hurt and constantly weeing! I'm so nervous about doctors tomorrow. I got a feeling they won't do or say anything. My doctor are rubbish! Xx

Best of luck for tomorrow flowers

If they don’t offer a blood test to check pregnancy hormones then ask nicely/demand one!

If it's a urine test make sure you take it with your first wee of the day!

I had a pregnancy test when I thought I had a unrine infection and test came back negative. The doctor said maaaybe it might be linked. Anyway it was negative and this was at about 4 weeks pregnant. I didn't find out I was pregnant for real until I got to 10 weeks!

Absolutely gutted had to cancel my appointment today cuz I just had a phone call to veiw a house! Bummer! I'll have to rearrange the docs! Or wait till the beginning of may to see if I come on xx

Right I'm abit confused! I did a test yesterday morning (first wee) and I forgot to read the test within 5 mins . I read the test 1 hour later and there was a faint positive?
I went to town and brought so more tests and did another one.
Again I forgot to read it straight away cuz I had to put my frozen food away. About 45mins later I read the test and again a very faint positive? Could this just be a evap line.?
But I did a test a few days ago and read it hours later and it didn't have any lines, like a evap line?!
Could I be?

Can you post pics of the positive tests?

Bluebirdsky Thu 26-Apr-18 14:27:39

You really need to read the tests within the time frame specified in order to get an accurate result.
Without doing this it's impossible to tell if it's a positive or just evap lines.

Hi, without being negative, I think if you are pregnant it would have shown up clearly by now. With both of mine it was bright blue straight away a day or two before my period was due xxx

zaalitje Thu 26-Apr-18 15:10:22

There'll be a time frame on the pack, usually about 10 minutes, and it'll say any results read after that are not reliable.

Ilovechocolate111 Thu 26-Apr-18 15:59:47

I'll retake in the morning. Thanks for the replies. Xx

Ilovechocolate111 Thu 26-Apr-18 16:00:04

Any recommendations on tests? BTW xx

Claire90ftm Thu 26-Apr-18 16:51:54

First Response are good. Pink dye tests are the most accurate. I bought 50 cheapie strips off of eBay and that's where I got my faint positive.

Bluebirdsky Thu 26-Apr-18 18:08:59

I got my first BFP 4 days before my AF was due on a cheap test I got from savers so I think it can be variable!

lolli18 Fri 27-Apr-18 06:48:28

How did it go x

Gem173 Fri 27-Apr-18 07:12:45

I done a test when I first suspected pregnancy, hardly anything came up in time frame, if it did it was very faint! Left it on the side for an hour and when I came back a line had appeared in the correct place and was pink. I read that if a line does turn up and it’s the right colour and not grey, then there is a good chance you are pregnant, just the hcg levels are not high enough to be picked up straight away. Anyway done some more tests after and they were positive smile the first pic is of it faint, second pic was it an hour later, with an app that made the photo darker.

Hi lolli. I have done a test this morning first wee. It came up negative but after an hour there wasn't an evap line or anything just negative..
If the weird bleed I had was my period then I'm AF is due around the 5th. 😕 should I just wait and see if AF arrives or keep testing? Xx

lolli18 Fri 27-Apr-18 08:19:06

You could test but not sure how mentally the negatives would make you feel, sometimes a positive takes a while to show up so if u can't deal with that side of it maybe wait a 3days xxx

Ilovechocolate111 Fri 27-Apr-18 09:10:42

Hi gem. When I did the test yesterday n left it, it was a pinkish line. But I did one this morning and it was just negative with no evap lines or anything. Xx

Ilovechocolate111 Fri 27-Apr-18 10:25:05

I can handle having the negative tests. I just feel pregnant. Bloated sore boobs little bit of sickness constantly weeing very sleepy mood swings and a little constipation now and again.
Could I be testing to soon? If that weird bleed on the 7th April was my period my next period would be the 5th may roughly so that's a week and a day away. Would it be to Early to test? Am I best waiting until the 5th.? I really am so broody lol xx

lolli18 Mon 30-Apr-18 18:01:55

I would test soon if your not sure that was your period could of been implantation xx

Ilovechocolate111 Mon 30-Apr-18 19:22:53

Boobs really sore, bloated, headaches continually. Weeing 3 times an hour!
