Post subject: am I???!!!!
Hi all I feel a bit thick saying this as I have x2 kids already but I am 4 days late for my period I have had a funny feeling im preggers from about a week ago and even done a test before my period was due, I have done 4 tests now in total and they are all negative I keep having funny cramps low down like period pains and I think im going to come on and I dont my boobs are MASSIVE and sore lol I dont feel like drinking (unlike me!) We have not been trying for a baby but we were a bit silly this month, I know I should go to my doctors and ask for a blood test but I was just wondering if this is a common thing any advice greatly appriciated!!!

Thanks all I done another test this morning still negative! 6 days late today told my OH last night and he is over the moon - its something we have talked about but had yet to make a decision on now hopefully the decision has been taken out of our hands I think i will be devastated if im not! Is there such thing as a phantom pregnancy? I keep getting cramps in my pelvis (sorry if TMI) and shooting pains in my legs i dont feel "sick" but not myself im tierd and not really "with it" I also (sorry again if TMI) keep going for no 2's... what is the longest anyone has been late before they got a positive result? thanks all x x

hi, just been reading posts and i am now 2 and half weeks late got all the signs of pregnancy apart from feel sick but not been sick yet ive done 4 tests now and everyone is neg i went doctors and she said wait a week and do another and come back if positive..trouble is im 45 now and we had unprotected sex but because of my age people assume its the menapause but i have no signs for that and my periods have always been regular every month either 26 or 28 days and now nothing anyone else had same could i be pregnant also or is it in my mind ? thanks

Thank you to all who gave me advice just to let you know that I had a positive result Saturday am and by the late afternoon I was spotting I didnt think much of it and just rested I got up Sunday am and started to bleed really bad with bad cramps also i am still bleeding so I am assuming I have lost my baby I didnt go to the hospital as I know that they cant do anything as it was so early im just going to rest and take it easy, im really sad and so is my OH but this obviously wasnt our time, Good luck to all of you trying and I hope you all get pregnant soon!
Luv Lyn x

I am sorry to hear you are bleeding, especially after your positive result. Is there no way you could still be pregnant or have you passed clots? If you are definately no longer pregnant, make sure you take the time you need to rest and recover, and I wish you luck trying again.

no way im still pregnant (sorry if TMI) but have passed lots of clots yesterday and and today. I have never had a m/c before so not really sure what to expect but I have been bleeding loads and really heavy - do I need to go to my GP or should I just let nature take its course? im so confused

Just let nature take it's course, unless you start to feel really unwell. I am really sorry to hear your news - it's heartbreaking to have a miscarriage but the pain does lessen over time. Do not let anyone tell you it is not a real loss as it was still a much wanted pregnancy. Take care and rest.
