Long story short, the last almost 2 months have been HELL. My husband is Bipolar and suddenly left home in a manic state at the beginning of June however, about a week before this we had sex. I had 2 miscarriages in late 2006 and have been unable to get pregnant since. Because of all this stress my doctor said my hormones are going haywire because I've been in "fight or flight mode" since the beginning of June. I have had what I think is 3 periods within 2 weeks, but they were very light and not normal for me. I normally have my period around the 23rd and haven't had it yet as scheduled. I have all the symptoms I had when I was pregnant before and then some... I took 2 home tests that were negative and my doctor didn't give me one but I have a feeling I am pregnant. What a cruel joke for the universe to play on me but isn't that how it always works out? I just feel...pregnant, especially this last week, something feels different than the "stress" I felt before. And I am stressed to the point I feel like I am losing my mind at times.
Could it be that I am but with all the stress it's coming up negative or is this feeling just due to stress and my hormones being out of whack?
Any theories? Also, I used tests from the dollar store...does that make a difference?
