Might Be Pregnant

Post by Eowyn » Thu Nov 19, 2009 2:19 pm

Ok, so heres the thing. I'm normally on birth control but this month I decided to wait to start taking it until I got my anti depressants filled. It would have only been like a two day difference. Well, this led to that and I just picked up the anti depressants yesterday and still haven't taken my birth control.

A few days ago I started to feel like something just wasn't right with me, ya know? Like I could just tell. Two days ago started the throwing up, as soon as I wake up or eat anything I either throw up or get super nauseous (last night I had this terrible craving for spaghetti so I made it, and by the time it was cooked, I couldn't stand to look at it). I've been super tired, very very dizzy most of the time, my back hurts, my chest is sore/nipples sensitive, I have cramps, Im constapaited, I have heartburn all the time, Im going to the bathroom a little more than usual and drinking a lot more fluids because I'm always thirsty. Also, my cat has been incredibly affectionate and protective of me lately, he follows me everywhere, and when I sleep, he lays right on my belly.

Worried I took a pegnancy test two days ago and it came back negative. Then yesterday I spent most of the day doing nothing because I was so dizzy so this morning I got up and took another test, negative again.

Now, I am still 2-3 days away from my missed period. I'm just wondering if its possible to be getting false negatives because I'm still a few days away? I've had an inklink for about a week and a half now but I'm just wanting input, if anyone else thinks that pregnancy is a possibility right now.



Also, I know it was stupid to not take my birth control this month, so please refrain from posts telling me that.



Thanks so much in advance for your help.

It's possible.. your hcg levels may not be high enough to detect on a test yet.

If you have all the symptoms, and taken two tests already.. I suggest making an appointment with your doctor. Have them do a blood test, and or ultrasound. <img src='http://www.helpingteens.org/groups/publ ... /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> Those will give you accurate responses.

That's what my friend keeps telling me, buy I recently lost my health insurance because my dad lost his job. So I really can't afford it. And if I would go, then I'd have to tell my boyfriend, and I'm terrified to tell him becuase I don't know how he's going to react.



I also bought 3 more tests today...1 per day until Sunday. I just wish I could find out, so I know if its why I'm constantly getting sick to my stomache and dizzy plus everything else.

Have you gone down to Planned Parenthood and asked them? There is also the Local Health center which gives discount health care to free health care. Also if you are pregnant, Medicare is something that you can get help with.



You mind is the strongest thing on you. If you think your sick hard and long enough, you'll become sick. Same thing when it comes to being pregnant.



You also just started Anti-depressants that can mess with your pills and your body. It can delay your period or skip one. Also you could just have a cold.



You may not be pregnant, you may be. If you've had so many negative test, Unless your using the $1 test, then I think your fine.

Just to clarify, I have been on anti depressants since January.



Saturday was supposed to be the day of my period and I didn't get it. I'll be taking another test in the morning, and if I get a negative another a few days later. If I still do not get my period, I'll be making an appointment to get a blood test done to see for sure if I am pregnant or not.



My boyfriend finally put together all of the hints I've been dropping him lately, he's not mad at all, just nervous until he knows if I am or not. I think that he doesn't want to get excited just to get crushed if I'm not, which I know will happen to me.



I'll keep everyone updated. :-)

Well if you've missed your period, it's safe to test, and safe to go get a blood test.

Good luck!

I got a super faint positive yesterday on a HPT. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Friday when I take another for a more defined one. :-)

I used the EPT 5 days before your missed period test. You should look into those <img src='http://www.helpingteens.org/groups/publ ... /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I am so lost right now, I'm not excatly sure what to do.

I got that positive the other day, took one last night (not FMU) and I got another positive, you could tell it was blue and right in the center, just not very dark.

My boyfriend made me go out and buy some more tests. Took two this morning, 1 with red dye, it came back negative, and then an E.P.T-certainty, the digital one with the hour glass and everything, clear as day, "NotPregnant."



I feel like I'm ready to burst at the seams. I got so excited, especially with the one last night. We already had names picked out. And now I might not be? I'm totally crushed right now and have no idea what to do next. <img src='http://www.helpingteens.org/groups/publ ... #>/cry.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cry:' />

Taking a urine test at night is not recommended.. you should take them first thing in the morning with your very first potty break. That's when the pregnancy hormones are at their highest peak.

As far as getting mixed results.. I think you should schedule an ultrasound/blood test with your doctor.. either of those will be more accurate then a urine test. I know how it feels to get excited about a possible pregnancy.. only to be let down.

My husband and I have had our names for our second child picked out ever since we had our first.. and a few months ago it really looked like I was expecting #2.. (missed my period for almost 3 months, was sick, sleepy etc)



Just hang in there and try not to let yourself get to down over this right now.

id like to point out that it is still really early for morning sickness that doesnt come till about week seven or later. the same with most other symptoms



to me it sounds like you have the flu (im sorry but i work at a hospital and see tons of both pregnancy and flu daily and this screams flu, also i have a kid)



you can be causing your period to be late, the anti-depressants and the stress of thinking you might be pregnant.



i dont want to rain on anyones parade.

Not true. My morning sickness kicked in when I was about 3 weeks pregnant. (Took a test, came back positive saw a doctor 2 weeks later and at that point I was 5 weeks along. Had my first ultrasound at 9 weeks)

I keep getting mixed results, all not very dark. 3 positives and 4 negatives.

I'm going to wait a few more days to see what happens, as of right now, I'm 7-9 days late.

If I keep getting mixed results, I'll schedule a blood test to find out for sure.



I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I've had a lot of clear discharge lately. Not entirely what that means. Along with some cramping.

Also had some pains right above my belly button. My neighbor (who is about 8 weeks pregnant) said that is could just be everything stretching if I am.

Guess I just want some other opinons. Ha. Its driving me crazy.

Well lots of women actually touch and stretch their discharge to see when they're most fertile. (if it stretches to a certain length it means your at your peak not sure what the length is though as I've never tried it)



And yes, when I was pregnant I had slight pains now and then because of my uterus and my skin stretching.



If you've gotten 3 positives already I'd say schedule a blood test now anyways. It'll be able to tell you with accurate results, and then you wont have to sit here and worry over whether or not there's a baby in the oven <img src='http://www.helpingteens.org/groups/publ ... /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I went to the Pregnancy center today and they gave me a test. It came back negative. The counselor there told me that she felt as though stress levels are the reason my period hasn't come yet. So no baby. I mean, I knew there was a good chance that I wasn't but its still hard not to get excited about it when that's all you have to think about.

So now I'm kind of crushed. <img src='http://www.helpingteens.org/groups/publ ... #>/sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

Thanks for all of the support though....
