Can anyone tell me what causes pregnancy symptoms when it turns out you're not pregnant?
I can probably explain away most of my symptoms except the breast pain (two weeks now) and the heartburn.
Has anyone had any experience with this? Did you ever figure out what was going on or is it all psychosymatic?
Background in case you're interested: Thought I conceived while on vacation. Got AF one day early but it was only 3 days so then I convinced myself maybe it was decidual bleeding. My breasts didn't start hurting until after AF which is highly unusual for me. Other symptoms include: fatigue, frequent urination, lower abdominal discomfort (like mild cramping), heartburn, headache, lightheadedness, very hungry midmorning with some food aversions and don't feel like eating in the evening. I keep getting BFN except yesterday I got two stupid dots on the positive line of an EPT so I went in for a blood test to ease my frustration. I bought an FRER and took it first thing this morning (26 DPO) and it was a BFN so I feel like my blood test will also come back negative and I feel like such a retard. But man - why do I feel this way?
I would love to hear anyone who has been through this.
