My doc is not an ob. She is a nurse pratitioner. I am going to find me another doctor because she doesn't seem too concerned with anything anymore. I even told her that my ear was hurting, and she didn't care. And it was swollen too. She knows that I have been having symptoms, and did the test, and forgot that she had even tested me. I had to bring it up to her. I will let everyone know whenever I can find something out. I am in a hard situation right now. I'm having to live with my Granny because we got evicted, and there's a lot of stress because she doesn't want my fiance there just because he's not related to her, so I have been stressing out so much that I haven't taken the time to worry about myself. I'm worried every day that she is going to kick us out. And if she does that, we will be on the street. Can everyone just pray for us? We really need it. We need a place to live and jobs, and we have neither one of those. I would really appreciate it. :)
I'm assuming there is an OB in the practice though? Call back (NOW) and say that you are very worried about abdominal swelling etc. A lot of people have pointed out what are much more likely (and scary) scenarios than some random phantom pregnancy that's immune to pregnancy tests. I really wish you would find good medical care ASAP. Your life truly might depend on it.
Best of luck with everything.

hey i think i am in the same boat as you was told by my doc that i was not pg because my hcg level was only a 7 but i know i am cause no period plus my first dd i did not know i was till i hit 7 months cause my levels where low then they only got up to 46 then at that time they thought i was only like a month but i stayed neg till i hit the 7 month mark so yeah docs can be wrong
I have read that PCOS can affect your hormone levels as far as pregnancy goes.
On top of that, your hCG levels are insufficient after they reach a certain number because they start to decrease after the first few weeks of pregnancy. hCG levels should only be used to pinpoint pregnancy at a very early stage. Later on, they aren't very reliable. hCG levels vary so much anyway, that it is hard to really tell anything from them at all. Every pregnancy is different.
You sound very pregnant. The fact that you DID get BFPs on early HPTs makes me question why the doctors won't just listen to you and try to do an ultrasound. Go to the ER and DEMAND that you have an ultrasound. Your medicaid is paying for it. And it is very important that you know.
SO in love with DH

our little mister born 4/13.
Hi! My last period was May 24, 2012. I was not TTC but I think that I am pregnant. My first symptom was getting sick after 2 shots of liquor. I have had numerous negative HPTs and one 0 blood test at what should have been 12 weeks. I had implantation bleeding and have spotted twice since then. I finally got 2 faint positives at home one and two weeks ago, but haven't since then. I have had almost every symptom possible, including a growing belly. No one but me believes I'm pregnant, so I'm just waiting. It is very frustrating.
I have been going through the same thing. I haven't had any positive test but have symptoms. I have all the symptoms you mentioned plus some more. I would be about 19 weeks now. Been to the doc and had urine and blood and got >5 result. But I can't stop thinking I am pregnant because of the feeling of kicks and movement and back pain that is daily. Also I can not button my pants anymore. I also have PCOS. I know that PCOS can cause belly fat but this came on very quickly. Please let me know if you were pregnant or if it is something to do with PCOS.
HI, IM GOING THRU THE SAME THING EXCEPT ACCORDING TO THE FIRSTRESPONSE CALCULATOR I SHOULD BE 8 WEEKS PREGNANT I ALSOHAVE BEEN GOING THRU THE SAME PREGNANCY SYMPTONS. I DIDNT GET A HPT AT STORE SINCE I WENT TO TALK TO MY OBGYM DR. I AM ON THE OTHER HAND 49. WITH NORMAL PERIODS ALWAYS ON TIME LASTING 7-10 DAYS. MY BOYFRIEND IS 35 AND HAS NO CHILDREN. WE HAVE BEEN TRYING FOR 2 MONTHS MY DOCTOR ALSO TOLD ME MAYBE IM GOING THROUGH PREMENOPAUSE OR MENOUPAUSE. BUT I DONT HAVE SYMPTOMS OF MENOPAUSE. THEY DID A PREGNAANCY TEST THERE ALSO URINE TEST. I TOLD MY DR. WHAT SHOULD I DO. I DO HAVE SMALL MIDDLE SWELLING AND PREGNANCY SYMPTOMS. HE TOLD ME TOO GO BACK AFTER HOLIDAYS THAT I SHOULD BE 2MONTHS THEN AND THEYLL RUN BLOOD TEST. BUT I AM ALSO AFRAID IF THAT COMES OUT NEGATIVE. I CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE U ARE COMING FROM. YOU FEEL SCARED U THINK U ARE GOING OUT OF YOUR MIND. ALL YOU WANT IS TO GET CHECKED. BUT NOW ADAYS THEY DONT WANT TO TAKE THE TIME FOR THE PATIENT. I DONT HAVE A CHOICE BUT TO WAIT AND SEE. MAYBE BE ON THE SHOW CALLED (I DIDNT KNOW I WAS PREGNANT) AFTER YOU DELIVER AND SAY I GUESS I WASNT GOING NUTS AFTER ALL. MY SISTER IN LAW GOT LUCKY AFTER TAKING 2 HPT AND ONE AT THE DR. OFFICE ALL NEGATIVE. THEY DID AN ULTRASOUND WHERE THEY ACTUALLY WENT INSIDE HER THRU VAGINALLY. AND SURE ENOUGH SHE WAS PREGNANT. IT SHOWED THE BABY HEART BEAT AND ALL. SHE FELT SO RELIEVED THAT SHE WASNT GOING NUTS. SHE ALSO HAD ALL THE SYMPTOMS. BUT NEGATIVE RESULTS. LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO U AND ILL LET YOU KNOW ALSO.
THANKS FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTION AND PUTTING YOUR RESPONSE ON HERE I TAUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE.
