So there is a chance that I may be pregnant. I would love to have another baby. If i was able to choose I would want a little girl. Since I already have a little boy who is the light of my life. 

 

I have a bunch of symptom. Breast tenderness, missed AF (only 2 days), slight brown spotting first thing in the morning, heightened senses, mild abdominal cramps on and off throughout the day. .....

 

The only thing I have not done is take the test. My last one did not give a positive until I was almost through my first trimester as I do not create a high amount of the HCG hormone. I would consider going to the doctor as well but I currently do not have insurance as I am unemployed (hopefully that will change next week. 

 

I am not scared to take the test for it to be a positive. I am scared that it may say negative. Does anyone else seem to have the same fear?

I've had that fear before, and that disappointment. It's one of those things, it's nice to think you are pregnant and you don't want to be disappointed by the factual knowledge (even if it's not true!). 

 

If I were in your position, I'd take a test (a pink dye test, not a blue dye test). But, you could wait until next week and take it- give yourself a specific day/time to do it, with a plan for what you will do after- regardless of the results. 

 

For example, one time, I planned to take the test after my DH got home, while my DD was at grandmas. If it was positive, I was going to go out to dinner and celebrate with DH. If it was negative, he was going to go buy me ice cream and pizza and rent me a movie.  We watched the Hangover and ate Ben and Jerrys :)

Thanks.  I was thinking about taking the test next Saturday. Possibly after DH goes to work. He doesn't know yet that there is a possibility.  We were not actively trying. :)

 If I am not I will just start baking (my stress release). If I am. that means we will have to start having even more whole foods in the house :)

I took a test today.. It wasn't a full confirmation. There was a faint blue  positive line.  I am going to take another one next week and make sure it is a pink dye test. fingers crossed

I think if the line is there, even if it's faint, you are pretty much guaranteed to be preggo!!!

As long as you read the line within the recommended time, a line is a positive.  Congrats!

I followed all of the directions on the test. When I do the second test I am going to show DH. He knows that I am late but he wants to believe it is from stress from being unemployed . :love. He says that he will be excited but he wants to live in denial a bit longer. LOL
