I need some help! Idk if I could be pregnant or if im just getting sick?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I am 10dpo starting tomorrow and I have been feeling nasuseas all week long! I actually threw up yesterday (8dpo) and have been experiencing headaches as well. I should be getting my AF dec. 3rd and I already tested at 8dpo BFN :/ I tested too early, but who can be patient! I dont know when i should test again? I feel lile throwing up all day now. Also my BBS are extra swollen this time and heavy back pains. I always get tender BBS before my AF but i need advice!! When should I test again? I havent bled anything either. dizzy.gif

I wish I had a definitive answer for you! I just had to reply because I am in the exact same boat as you...only it sounds like you are having more symptoms than me. :)

 

I think 8 dpo is just too early to test. I know some women say they get a positive that early, but try to give it a few more days. A lot of women don't get a positive UNTIL they've missed their period.

 

At least, that's what's giving me hope! I am also 10-11 dpo as of today. My entire family had the stomach flu over Thanksgiving. For the last two days, I've been nauseated on-and-off all day long. I've also (sorry, tmi) had increased discharge for the last two days, which I've read can be a sign of early pregnancy. I ordered like 100 cheap pregnancy test strips from Amazon, and so far they've all been negative...even one taken first-thing this morning. :( My cycle is all over the place. Last month it was 28 days exactly, which means I'd be due to start today. But my average cycle is 35 days, which means I'm also due to start on December 3... Sorry this is rambling, but just wanted to let you know you're not alone! I'd wait a few more days. You're having so many symptoms..good luck!

 

Here's to not driving ourselves (too) crazy over the next few days!

I am going through something so similar!! It makes you feel like you're going insane, doesn't it?? The only difference for me is that i'm unsure of when I ovulated :( .... I went off my birth control last month, and never got my period in November. For the past week or so, I've been nauseous and have thrown up a few times, have been waking up with nasty headaches, and certain smells even make me feel like gagging. I've had dull cramping in my lower abdomen, with occassional poking or pinching sensations, for the past 5 days as well. My issue is that since I don't know when I ovulated, I don't know when to test!

 

It's somewhat comforting to know that I'm not alone, though. I've tried other message boards, and the people didn't seem as friendly as everyone does on here :)

 

I hope you guys get a positive preggo test soon!!

Another one in the same boat... Here's to hoping for all of us. :)

 

I also have trouble recognizing my day of O since I can be very irregular (anywhere from 28 days to 44). But for the past few days now I have been feeling rather nauseous, headachy (though headaches are fairly common any time for me), tender BBS, achy lower back. and was crampy last week. I don't normally notice cramps or lower back pain before AF (usually those 2 AF symptoms hit on day 2 of AF). If I am on 28 days this cycle, I would be due tomorrow (Dec 4)... and by some O indicators that may be likely, but I am not certain. If some other O indicators are accurate I could get AF next Tues (Dec 10)...

 

*sigh*  This has certainly been a lesson in patience...

It's been more of a lesson in how impatient I am haha.. since I don't know what's going on, I've been using an OPK daily (still haven't gotten one that says O is coming...) and I'm going to go broke buying HPT's until I either get a positive, or my period...

 

I think my friends are getting sick of hearing me talk about how I've been feeling, and I feel really alone in all this.  It's easy for friends with kids to say, just relax, it'll happen, or to brush me off as though I'm just crazy. I'm glad to have found this site and people to talk to, that actually understand.

I am struggling with patience now... I did my first HPT today and got a VERY (very) faint blue line... I have no idea what this is supposed to mean, but now all I can think about is testing again... My brain says I should wait until Thursday or Friday... but every other fiber of my being is telling me to jump at another test *right now*... UGH!    I bought some new tests (Clear Blue Easy 2 pack with 1 digital and 1 "PLUS" test)...

 

I.... will... wait.... (and go crazy in the meantime).

ahh good luck!!! I'm like you. I test way too often haha. But it's so hard not to! I just ordered a TON of wondfo test strips on amazon, so I won't feel so bad about wasting money on storebought tests. I really really hope you get a positive result!

 

I'm over here losing my mind, cause i'm a week late, but STILL no positive test crap.gif  I still have dull cramping, nausea, and headaches when I wake up. I'm really frustrated at this point, and I don't know what to do.

It is actually a benefit to me right now that I have to leave for work so early (I have a 1.5 hour commute)... It keeps me from testing too often... I work from home on Tuesdays & Thursdays... so they will become my scheduled testing days. winky.gif  But now I sit here in my office thinking of nothing but babies and trying to ignore my nausea... *sigh*...  I should be doing work.

 

And I told my hubby last night that I found a great Anniversary gift for him... So now he won't be suspicious when I buy a baby-announcement gift too (pre-planning for when I need it - and hoping I need it very soon)... It's tough to buy him secret gifts when he manages all of the bills & credit cards. LOL!

 

Need to go do some online shopping buying now. orngbiggrin.gif

Argg. Still no period, no positive test, but headache, nausea, cramping :( what should I do?

post #10 of 15

Have you thought about just making an appointment with your OBGYN? The blood tests (from what I hear) are much more sensitive to the pregnancy hormones... I read on another thread about someone who still tested negative 4 months into her pregnancy, but the blood test from the doctor was the only things that shows positive.... And a relatively faint positive at that...

I called my doc and they have a labwork order waiting for me, but my work hours and their office hours clash, so I haven't even been able to go pick up the darn order!! PLUS about an hour ago, I tested after saving up my pee for a few hours (haha) and as the moisture went up the test, a faint, light pink line showed up for a few seconds, but faded to a whitish line as the test sat... what the hell.

post #12 of 15

then the adrenaline of seeing that line made me nauseous. hahaha... i can't seem to win here!

yellowsugar-- any news?

I feel your pain!!!!!!  My test on Tuesday did the same thing... I got a super-super faint blue line. So light that I can't even be certain that I wasn't seeing things... I don't trust that to be anything. I will be retesting tomorrow...
 

And I hear you about being able to manage getting to the doc to pick up anything... My work commute is 1.5 hours... I usually can only "pop-in" before and after hours, which doesn't work very well. I only manage to get to the doc with an appointment.

 

Gees... I feel like I've found my TTC twin... so much of what you are going through I am right there with you!

*hugs*!! I agree. I couldn't help myself and took four... yes, 4, wondfos tonight. I don't know what I was expecting, with my urine being diluted at this point anyway, but yeah, all negative. At least wondfos are cheap. I bought 100 hahaha...

 

And now I'm scared that I'm really just not pregnant right now, and my friends will think I'm an idiot for getting so worked up.
