My last AF was 9/10/13. On 10/10/13 I had a little brown discharge (old blood). Both last night's "First Response" pregnancy test and this morning's pg test at the health dept. were negative.I am a 43 year mother of 5 ( 22,18, 10,10, 8) and granny of 1 (2 months old). I have been a single mama for more years than not. My boyfriend and I have been together for 10 months...we don't use any birth control (other than him sometimes pulling-out).My boyfriend has never fathered a child and believes he is infertile. I am having what has always been conclusive early signs of pregnancy for me (tender swollen breast including nipples, darkening nipples, fatigue, frequent urination, mood swings, occasional feelings of nausea, a general almost flu-like feeling, slight abdominal bloating, constipation).Anyone else going through this/gone through this?
43...pregnant or peri~menopause???
No need to apologize. It feels good to have someone comment at all...and even moreso for you to say it sounds like pregnancy to you. it feels like pregnancy to me :-) Though, because I have never gone through any peri-menopausal symptoms prior to possibly now (?) I am trying not to get my hopes up.My boyfriend thinks (and he's REALLY hoping) I am pregnant and the tests were negative because it was too early and I should test again in 2 weeks.Thank you for your support. I am praying to be Blessed with a healthy baby.
Thank you, Lilly Kay! I love that story about your Great-Aunt...thank you for sharing it. I found out I was pg with my 8 y/o daughter at 24 weeks, by feeling her move. The reason it took me so long to know then was, I was bf-ing my 17 month old twin son's...so I only had 3 very short irregular periods during that year.I attributed my fatigue to having twin toddlers. I really do feel like I am pregnant. Though I am trying very hard not to get my hopes up.Oh, the waiting to re-test....quite a test of my patience.
