  • Unless you're pregnant with twins or triplets or something, you shouldn't have gained 10 pounds by now if you're pregnant.

    Wait a few days, test again, and if you still don't get your period and/or the test is negative, you need to go to a doctor to have a blood test done.

  • I'm 5 months with twins and I've only gained 8-10 pounds, so 10 pounds in a month is a lot. I would take another test and make an appt with your doc just to be sure. Otherwise, maybe it's just metabolism?
