am i pregnant?

okay, so here's the deal, ladies. on the 17th of december i had a very, very light period for me. my period wasn't supposed to start till the 22nd. it was very short and i had almost no cramps. my boobs feel very heavy and are very sore, and i am getting weird lower abdominal cramps. i am super moody (i am usually a very pleasant, easygoing person) and it's like my sense of smell has been turned up to turbo. i'm super lethargic all the time and could sleep constantly. because my period was so weird in december, i took a test when it was over (about the 22nd) and it was negative. i haven't tested again since then but i go to the gyno tomorrow so i will see what they say. any thoughts?

  • What was that one answer that Cafemom talked about? Something like "Pee on your keyboard and I'll have an answer for you by this time tomorrow." I like that answer...

  • It sounds like you might be. Remember: those tests are made in a factory. Not all of them are right. Good luck!

  • tell your doctor tomorrow and they will probably do a test in the office. your symptoms sound a lot like being pregnant though. if you want to, go buy a test or just wait til tomorrow.

  • Wow, I can't believe how rude the responses to you have been! On behalf of all the sincere people that are here, I apologize for their immaturity. Now, there are many reasons why your period is late. You may have experienced a weird period, or you may have experienced implantation bleeding. You have a few choices. You can either stress out about it and wait for a million tests, or you can call the doctor and ask for a Quantative HCG blood test. This will determine the level of HCG in your body. You may be a late ovulator (which I am) and it can take a whole month more to show up on a HPT. So, my suggestion is to get the blood test. Insurance or not , it may wind up being cheaper than a bunch of digital tests. Good luck

  • If you are going to the doctor tomorrow, why don't you ask him, instead of wasting your (and our) time asking here? Jeez!

  • Does it burn when you put Arbys sauce on your varginal? If so, there is a 50% chance you are pregnant.
