Post subject: Can someone please help I don't know where else to turn
I have posted a few topics before but i'm at breaking point now.
I have had irregular periods for 4 months now, I thought i may have been pregnant this month I am a week late and have just started to bleed, me and my partner were going to do a HPT but didn't its been a bit of bad timing this week, unfortunately i have been in imense pains around my stomach, its swollen as if in early pregnancy and I have had a few other symptoms this month, With the fact that I started to bleed this morning and I'm in so much pain i have spent the morning in tears. My doc wasn't available fri to speak to and my surgery has a system where you have to phone them up and the doc will call you back and decide based on the info you give them whether they think you need an appointment. My doc didn;t seem to think i needed one but that was fri, I am now waiting for a call back today because i can't cope with this pain and the not knowing what is going on with my body. I just wish I could stop the tears i feel so stupid, i'm going on a course tomorrow morning and i know i'm not going to be able to think straight and i'll also be away from my partner for 2 days because of it. Anyone got any advice or anything that might help?

I'd recommend you go for a swim, or a walk or something, I know you are in pain, this could be stress related. Like most of us on ttc our emotions get the better of us and it leads to a catch 22 situation of stress and rollercoaster rides. You're not being stupid, but just remind yourself that you will get there one day and that the pain is probably just your body in workig order. When it comes to being pregnant I've discovered that it is only people that conceive straight away that tell you about it. Others try for years and you never know that they were even trying. Somebody gave some good advice in another of these threads, forget the science, enjoy the baby dancing!

I went to the doc on Wednesday, who confirmed that she doesn't think i'm pregnant. I was gutted, she has asked me to do another test in 2 weeks if I didn't have a regular period. My period this month was a week late and even though they have been SO irregular this month it only lasted 2 days? But I'm not going to test, christmas is nearly here and i'm going to relax (hopefully, you'll see why in a mo) start ttc the new year.
Unfortunately the down side to going to the doc, she did confirm that my stomach is swollen and that because of the pains I'm getting also, that i may have gall stones so she has booked me in to have a scan for those, however we don't know which hospital and when they could do this! so right now i'm on a major rollercoaster not knowing whether i'm coming or going!
Bring on 2008
