I know you will all think I am crazy, and I do feel I might be, however...
I got a positive test at 12dpo, but it got lighter every day afterwards for three days, then I had AF type bleeding. So I guessed it was a chemical pregnancy.
If that is the case, why do I still have symptoms? Especially as I'm not getting positive tests. The symptoms have really amped up today, I feel dreadful - a very strong yucky taste in my mouth (which I have had in all my pregnancies) and very very fatigued. Perhaps I am just sick? But it feels familiar (I've had 9 pregnancies now). I took a First Response test at lunchtime (had held my pee for a couple of hours) and it was negative.
It's not likely that I'm still pregnant is it, when the tests are negative? I know you can have a bleed and remain pregnant, but surely if there's any hcg in there (I'd be 5weeks+1day) it would show up on a test?
Is it possible to have a vanishing twin this early (I had vivid dreams of twins running up to the bfp), and then have low hcg?
I'd appreciate any feedback. Has anyone had a similar experience? I know it is most likely that I am not pregnant, but it is strange that I am having these darned symptoms. And I'd love to still be pregnant.
Well, it was definitely wishful thinking, and the Universe giving me a total battering : I am not pregnant, I am sick. I've gotten much worse, and my morning sickness has never been as bad as this.
I guess it is a virus (my DS was sick last week) so I'll wait it out and get back to ttc asap.
Sorry mama. I don't have any experience, but I agree with the conclusions you came to. Hugs. Hope you get another positive soon.

Thankyou. I guess I can't seem to let go of hope. I've been waiting so long for this last baby, but it just isn't happening. I've tried to give up the quest, but then I got a bfp! Which has just renewed my desire rather than lessening it.
Maybe I'll have a Christmas baby?
