AM I Pregnant?!

Hello ladies, 

My name is Hollie. My only child, Gage, just turned 13 months old. For about 3 months now my husband and I have been trying for another (I know we are starting early, but we like the closeness... its a large family thing) and so far nothing. My periods have been coming like clock work, and a little on the lighter side since we've been trying. About a month and a half ago I started getting very hard phantom kicks, so much so that I can see them. They are starting to get more frequent as time goes on... about 4 times a day now. I am very irritable ( you can ask the hubby). I have been sleeping a lot lately for about 2 months now. My boobs have gotten bigger and they usually do around the time of my period, but then shrink back down after, however there has been no shrinking, only growth. My chest has become more sensitive, but no nipple change. I have been nautious a lot lately, you can barely touch my stomach and I feel like I am going to throw up, but I ALWAYS burp. I feel like I need to drink a lot, and have been peeing like a champ! Also I have noticed that my BM's have become more frequent and softer. I have been hungry, but always feel like I am going to throw up what I am thinking about eating, even before I eat it. My nose has been working full force that I can smell the dog feces outside with the windows closed, especially when it's calm outside, but our walls are thin. I have been thinking about sex more than usual, and having some pretty crazy dreams! All tests that I have taken have come back negative, and like I said I have been getting my periods, but they are a little lighter than usual, but I dont know what my new usual is since my boy was born. My mother told me that when she was pregnant for both me and my sister, the tests always said negative, even when she was looking down at a basketball belly. Is it posible that I am pregnant? If not does anyone know what could be going on?


Thank you 

Hollie

You can always go in for a blood draw to be sure. Have you had a well-woman check since you started TTC?

No I haven't had an appt yet. My husband is military so they only like to see you every 6 months unless your either pregnant or are being unsafe with sex (a lot of partners). I can go in for a blood test, but I just wanted to make sure that its not all in my head before I go make a complete fool of myself in front of my husband and his co-workers.

It could be your mind playing tricks on you. I've been there. But the best thing at this point would be to have blood drawn.

agreed. You may not want to look crazy infront of them if it turns out to be negative, but since there is a chance you are, do you really want to continue not knowing and getting prenatal check-ups? Definately do a blood test.
