AM I Pregnant?

My periods last 5- 7 days, but for the last two months they have only been 3-4 days. My breast are growing now and I ust felt what I think was a heartbeat in my stomach. I am have gained 10 pounds really fast and I have had heart burn, and frequent urination, and bowel movements. I am always nauseated when I wake up. However, I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. I was wondering have anyone else had these symptoms and same problem with the test and ended up pregnant? I want to have a healthy baby and take care of him/her while I am pregnant, but how can I do so if my tests are negative. Please Help!

  • I doubt what you felt was a heartbeat but the rest are common symptoms of pregnancy. It is possible to get a false negative, I would suggest going to the doctor for a test. The doctor's tests are much more accurate. Good luck!!

  • Urine tests can be wrong. Blood tests are NOT. If a blood test came up negative, then you need to dig deeper to see what's going on in case there's something wrong.

    If you haven't had a blood test, get one.

  • I ust felt what I think was a heartbeat in my stomach.
    That was your pulse.I can feel mine in my stomach when I lay flat. It is IMPOSSIBLE to feel a baby's heart beat in your stomach. If you have had a negative HPT then wait 2 days and test again or go to your doctor and have them to a HCG draw on you. Best of luck and relax stressing about pregnancy will make your period late.

  • First off there is no way to feel the baby's heart beat. Second if you are not sure and think you may be go to the Dr and get checked out. We are not Dr and can not tell you. Even a Dr has to do a test to comfirm it.

    Have you resently gone off of birthcontrol. That can change you period cycle. Also when you TTC you get stressed and can change things.
