I feel like when you're pregnant, you just know. I woke up one morning.. Said this queasiness in my stomach doesn't feel right, I need to take a test, and that was it. Before that I was just peeing a lot more often than usual, my boobs hurt but nothing crazy. The feeling in my stomach was what stuck out in my mind that something was off.

Since you've missed two periods, you should probably go ahead and make an appointment to see your doctor.

About 1 week ago after my second miss period.

I have no idea if I am pregnant or not...I have taken many at home tests and they come out to be negative. But I am always tired, backache, sometimes a slight headache but nothing unbarable like with my first pregnancy, and I am getting "fatter."  I also still get my period, but I have read on multiple sites that people still have their period while pregnant. My diet has not changed at all, and I am young so not to many foods really effect my body in that way. My breats have appeared more fuller, but that could be due to gaining weight if that's the answer? My body hates me, I'm not sure what is going on!

It doesn't sound like you're probably pregnant, but at this point, maybe you need to see your doctor to find out if there is something going on (thyroid maybe?) and have a blood pregnancy test done which will be more definitive than a home test.

My mom actually has a thyroid problem... Could that be passed down? She takes medication for it and everything

From what I understand, thyroid issues can be hereditary.  I've also heard they often develop during/after a pregnancy and since you've had one child, if you've not had it checked, it sure can't hurt to do so.

I'm not sure because I've never been pregnant but I have a sore back, i missed my period, and im experiencing a lot of the same experiences i do right before i start my period. I just haven't had my period! I dont ever get sore breasts or anything so i dont have that (i at least dont think i do) ive been tired a lot. I almost passed out cleaning. Actually i did. And i pee more than usual. I used to be able to hold it for a while now its like a constant urge. And not to gross anyone out but seems like everything is just going right through me. I have noticed changes in my mood. I have been getting aggrivated and annoyed easier than usual. I got pissed at my boyfriend for his usual jokes that normally i just brush off or laugh about because ik hes joking. I think im experiencing some bloating. I havent weighed myself in a while so cant say anything about weight changes... i would take a test but i dont have a car at the moment. My boyfriend and i plan on taking one next week when hes back from his vatation. He is hoping i am ..
