We didn't get a + in our HGC, but I knew I was pregnant...<br><br>
I had lots of symptoms for over two weeks--exhaustion, super mood swings, super congestion, non-stop urination, constipation, extreme fatigue, strange cramping, bloated abdomen and breasts. Then on Saturday I was supposed to get my period. Instead I got brown spotting and then nothing happened for a couple days. I was very excited and hoping the egg would implant fully.<br><br>
On Monday morning I woke up and noticed my symptoms had disappeared. I went for a run. Halfway through, I felt super cramps. I walked home and in the shower found bright red blood. The rest of the day, I've bled heavily. There are very few clots and tissue (this is weird for me--I usually have shed tissue), but the fluid is. Sometimes it stops and goes clear, and sometimes I feel cramping in my right ovary (ovary pain never happens to me before during my period).<br><br>
I think I was only 3-4 weeks pregnant. There was no proof (+ HPTs) but I know I wasn't imagining what happened to my body. I just feel very empty now, and I was on the edge of tears at work yesterday. Am I crazy?

You aren't crazy, if you know, you know. But I know what it is not to have *proof*. I'm so sorry for your loss and the confusion makes things more complicated. I feel that I had an early miscarriage last November. My period was late and I had some symptoms but by the time I tested it was negative and then later I got an extremely heavy/crampy period.<br><br>
Take care of yourself mama, again I am so sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Just keep an eye on the bleeding... I haven't heard of ovary pain in a miscarriage and wouldn't want it to turn out to be a complication... not saying that's the case but it made me think of ectopic pregnancy.

Almost a year and a half ago, I had one of these possible m/c where I had not proof, but I was sure. My period was late (which NEVER happens for me. Not even after this m/c that I just had... 28 days after the bleeding started, just like OCD clockwork! ARg!). I went to buy a test, but at the little local grocery store they cost over $10!! I wasn't going to pay that, so I waited to get to Wal-mart. A few days later, I got a test and was going to take it the next morning, but woke up that morning with bleeding. Thought it was a fluke, but then it went on for a week and a half and was yellowish and weird, very much like the bleeding I had after this m/c (at 12 wks). I just took note of it at the time, it didn't bother me too much because I was never sure (now I wish I had taken a test!). I had a 9mo baby at the time, and it's not like I had known I was pregnant and gotten attached or anything, so I didn't really grieve it. I can't help but think now that that baby would be around 7mo old...

Thank you for your stories and kind words, MoodyRed and Rosie Kate. It's very odd how these things work out. Not having proof (but knowing) is a very frusterating thing.<br><br>
After reading your posts, I remembered my mom had an ectopic pregnancy when she was my age. Just to be on the safe side, I called my gyno today, and they had my blood drawn for HCG and Progesterone tests. The receptionists were very kind. Tomorrow they'll have the results, and hopefully I will at least some kind of resolution (and peace of mind).<br><br>
My husband (who's been super supportive throughout this) took me to get the tests. Afterwards we had a "sick day" together, and took a road trip to a little farm where we got to feed baby goats (they were sooooo cute). It was very wonderful way to unwind, and I feel so much better.

That happened to me about a week ago. I never got a positive test but I'm 99% sure I was pregnant. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> The "not knowing" is the worst part, for me...
