so i have been bf for 15 months, about 5 weeks ago i had some cramps & thought my af was coming. around the same time we had a slip up lol, i have been cramping every day since then, at first i still kept thinking it was af trying to come until i started getting dizzy, tired, waves of nausea and heartburn (i have never had outside of pregancy) and reocurring headaches. 


i have been pregnant 4 times prior and never have gotten a positive until at least 6 weeks pregnant, so i was thinking since i have no period to go off of and i am still getting neg. test, it seems like i may only be about 3 or 4 weeks pregnant??

Quite possible. I test positive very early, but I got pregnant without a preceding period twice. My OB thought I was like 17 weeks with my DD...nope, only 5 :)

The one time I did get pregnant right after a period was weird for me. It was nice to not have any guess work, but I was so used to not really knowing. It was pretty good to have my body working textbook properly :)

Definetly a possibility. Test weekly until symptoms disappear, af comes, or positive result.
You could also call your ob/midwife and see if they'll do blood work.
Are you taking a prenatal? If not you may want to start

so did you just test every week then until you got a positive?

 I'd wait at least 2 weeks (since you said you don't test pos until about 6 weeks).  If no positive then, test a few more times andthen write it off to period weirdness :)

No, I had no clue I was pregnant. The first time I was having tests ran for hypoglycemia and they said oh by the way you are pregnant and looks like you are about 6 weeks along. Then with my son I was really nauseated and it dawned on me that I could be pregnant. Took a test and yep I was. Went to have an ultrasound and I was already 8 weeks along.
