Here it is ladies....HELP! I am two weeks late for my period, every pregnancy test i took thus far has been negative. HOWEVER, I had cramping and that feeling like you have done a whole bunch of situps and your muscles in your abdomen are tired and achy, frequent urination, a really good smeller, really gaggy, been very hungry, very exhausted, AND NOW the centers of my nipples turned white and it looks like I am starting to get colostrum did i mention the SORE SORE boobs!! I thought it would be wayyy early for colostrum because if i am preggo it would only be about 5-6 weeks. I got colostrum with my first around 12 weeks. But maybe since i breastfed less than a year ago it didn't take as long but.... How is it possible that I am still getting a negative test and getting colostrum?! Anyone PLEASE?! Doctors are supposed to be mailing me a script for a blood test...still haven't gotten it?!

  • Maybe there is some kind of hormonal imbalance or other gyn issue going on.

  • Just like the first response...sometimes your hormone levels are not high enough yet for a test to pick up on it. If your blood test is soon then save yourself the money and wait for that or at least give it another full week before you take another test! I wish you the best w/ your TTC. If your not prego then make sure to go see your OBGYN and tell him/her about whats going on. Good Luck!

  • I think you know your own body so I'd go with the blood test otherwise you might spend a small fortune on pregnancy tests. I took probably 10 tests before I got a positive but I just new I was pregnant. Best wishes!!

  • I experienced exactly what you have. I was in the shower, I noticed white dots on my nipples, I squeezed my breast and was able to get a drop of what looked like colostrum out. (this was before I was even far enough along to take a pregnancy test.) I hadn't been able to get a drop of milk out of either breast since a coupe weeks after i weaned my daughter (about a year ago). I was also exhausted, hungry, and had to use the restroom way more than normal. When I took my test 4 days later it came out positive, and I have since confirmed it with a blood test @ the doc office.
    And a side note, My SIL wasn't able to get a positive test until she was 6 weeks pregnant with her baby she is currently carrying.

  • The sore boobs, feeling nautious & tired makes me think you could be preg. With my second pregnancy it took a few weeks to get a posative test. They were showing up negative for at least 2 weeks for some reason but I was! Give it time & try to be patient. If you are it'll show up on the test eventually.
