Pregnancy Pregnancy

For the last two months I thought I was prego. only to go to the doctor today and be told that I'm just battling a really bad bladder infection. "It's normal not to have your period when on Depo; it's normal to leak from your boobs for up to two years after delivery." She said. It doesn't explain the other things I've been feeling lately though, such as the nausea and smelling everything that comes up; along with the dry heaves when someone gets sick.She wasn't exactly listening to me and kept cutting me off too. Changing dr office doesn't work due to transportation problems... This is not the first time this has happened to me either, so Idk wtf is going on.

I have done urine tests. the thing is, on top of pregnancy symptoms, I'm battling a severe bladder infection which is why the tests keep coming back bfn. My RN friend told me this earlier after I wrote this post up.

She said that due to how bad the bladder infection is, it's messing up the tests. To take the meds for the infection, and go from there. Keep doing the things I'm doing, that she knows without a doubt that I am pregnant (I won't argue with an 80yr Sicilian woman that has an RN degree) I'm going to do as she says, and that's the end of it. 

Quoting MamaBearEH:

So next question, have you done the urine test?  Those depo shots are so finicky with timing.  Most people I know that have had them have gotten pregnant on them due to that.  Like one day off in timing was all it took.

Quoting EHWQ1987:

That's the problem. The dr won't do any other kind of test on me unless the urine test comes back positive. That's the way my dr are with me. They argue with me, discredit me, and interrupt me when I'm trying to tell them what's going on. They do not listen to me whatsoever; they never have.

Quoting mychinababy: Have you taken a blood test? There's no wrong in those.
Quoting EHWQ1987:

Hey ladies,

From what I know now, one of my mom friends who is a Registered Nurse is saying that I am, regardless of what the dr said. This woman is in her 80s and knows a thing or two about pregnant women. She's the one that knew before I knew about me being prego. I'm going to listen to my mom friend instead of the dr I saw today.

My friend says that the dr won't listen to me about anything I say, and that she suggest I listen to the RN.

Depo can make you feel pregnant. Take a home pregnancy test.

Infections will not change pregnancy test results.
If it's still negative there is no way you are two months pregnant.
Sorry but depo causes pregnancy symptoms.
You are not pregnant.

You're probably not pregnant. Change bc if you don't want to be pregnant or just stop it if you do.

Depo can screw with your body. It did the same to me. I stopped all periods. Breast milk came back a couple years later. I lost weight like I do at the Beginning of pregnancy. Crazy mood swings. Sex drive changed. It was awful. Took me almost two years to get my period regulated after four years of the depo shot, then I ended up pregnant lol. I would demand a blood test tho! Be persistent.

Before many of naysayers keep telling me that I'm not; I know my body, you do not. If you want to keep telling me that I'm full of crap, bugger off; I don't want or need your negativity. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I know that I am pregnant. Due to my religion, I have done other types of tests, and they have come back as I AM PREGNANT with twins nonetheless. Severe bladder infections, DO mess with urine tests, whether you believe it or not. I have been told this by 3 people. One is an RN, one was a paramedic (and he forgets nothing) and the other is in her 60s and pregnant again herself.
So, ladies, I know I've gotten defensive and maybe misunderstood your intentions of trying to give me advice, but you are telling me I'm not when I know darn well and certain that I am. If you are offended, I apologize. I know my body, I know what I'm dealing with. I know the truth. You don't want to believe me, that's on you.

Just because someon is old doesn't mean they know everything. If the tests are negative it's not likely that you are. Also just curious did you mean to say the woman is 60 in pregnant or did I just read that wrong?

Twweaty, thanks for being a bit nicer than some of the others. I plan on getting a blood test and doing another hpt when I finish the medication. I know that Depo can mess with the body. I know about 3 people that have been on Depo and they still got pregnant anyway. One is my own adopted mom (she is expecting twins) and two others were friends. My periods stopped after a couple of Depo injections, but that and the leaking breast milk that has me going on the I am pregnant trek. It's the N&V, the frequent bathroom trips (aside from the infection, 2/3 times an hour), the inability to focus on one thing at at time, the getting overwhelmed and frustrated easily, the emotions, all the other things that come with pregnancy, including completely random nesting moments and being up from 2am until 7am every day for no reason. But again, thanks for trying to actually help instead of bring my mood down and make me upset.

I'm not saying that these people know everything just because of their age. I know that the bladder infection is messing with the test. I almost didn't go to the dr as it was. The woman is sixty and she is pregnant. Was on Depo when she got pregnant WITH TWINS.

Wow your crazy. Actually bladder infections do not mess up pregnancy tests because I had a very bad bladder infection and the pregnancy test came back positive. So you don't really know what your talking about. I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant I'll be 29 weeks pregnant tomorrow. It's true that we don't know your body but it sounds like you don't even know your body.
