  3. QUESTION:
    Very detailed please read!! Pregnancy symtoms for 9 weeks but Quantative test not pregnant so what is it???
    i’ve was taking bcp (21 days) for 6 years but last few months had not been good with timing & been ill but i’ve been having pregnancy symptoms for 9 weeks now increased cm (kind of milky white sorry tmi!), sore veiny boobs, crampy, bloated (trousers tighter), heartburn, low back ache & feeling sick but not being sick, hips have started to ache and have become very veiny… i was due to have period on the 16th Dec (had cramps like was going to start for two days) but on the 13th Dec v. light spotting started this lasted 2-3 days & went from brown to very watery pink… my normal flow is very heavy with lots of clotting and still hadn’t shown so knew that pregnancy was still possible, i got 2nd faint + (within time limit) on 31st so went to the doctors & he then took me off bcp to see if ‘normal’ period would resume i haven’t taken it since 30th & started to spot on 31st December but not heavy (same as last) 5 or 6 days in all but barely on & off (my doc said that i may have this even if i am pregnant as withdrawrel from taking the pill) i went to the doc for a quantative test & i got the results Friday 11th which were negative my doc has booked me in for a ultrasound on the 28th (does anyone know what kind of u/s it will be) as still having all symptoms of pregnancy and faint positives on home test I feel different & I know that things like a molar pregnancy you experience high levels of hcg and other symptoms that i dont have and a phantom pregnancy would not produce excess cm and other symptoms! Over the last few days my tummy has also got a raised bump which now meets my belly & never used to just above the pubic bone which is much bigger by the end of the day & my boobs are suddenly huge!! Please reply if i am i would be 9 weeks Friday but not even sure about that as also had a funny period in October and read on askbaby.com that it’s at 12 weeks your uterus starts to come out of your pelvis but I was only 8 ½ stone before all this but I’ve suddenly grown a bit of a belly I am eating like a pig at the moment but that’s because I’m always so hungry!! I’m also craving weird things (for me anyway) CHERRYADE of all things!

    WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE THOUGH?? What could cause these symptoms what else could make me feel this way! If I’ve had a miscarriage without knowing why would I still be growing !! can cysts / fibroids / hormone imbalance really cause all my symptoms!!

    (not ttc or crazy and bf read the positive home tests results too and doc!!) Latest pregnancy test was barely positive which was yesterday but digital said not pregnant!
    So my main question is how many women have experienced this and have they still had a healthy pregnancy ??? if I am pregnant would be a very happy accident but just scared of what else it could be!!

    Thanks x

    • ANSWER:
      You could be pregnant! The only thing I know that could cause your symptoms would be hormones! Either because of the change in the level, because you took birth control pills for so long and have recently stopped or because you are indeed pregnant!! So don’t worry it is one of the two!! You do have some spotting when you first get pregnant, it is due to the implantation to the uterus!!! Get a good quality home pregnancy test and take it in the morning with your first morning urine, don’t do it until you have that, it will be a lot more accurate!!! Good Luck to you, I hope the result is what you want it to be!!!

  4. QUESTION:
    can you have a menstrual like blood flow during pregnancy?
    k here goes… i am 25 with one child and two previous pregnancies. with both my pregnancies i ceased to have a period im guessing on conception. as of recently i have been feeling quite…. pregnant. i wake up feeling like a train wreck, early morning nausea, dizziness, CONSTANT fatigue, and evening time EXTREMELY strange cravings.. my nipples are noticeably darker and sensitive and i have the same butterfly feeling down there as before… and have the same cramps (from fibroids) that i had with my son, very centered. there is a ton of heat coming from down there and my uterus is high and soft. i started what i am speculating may be a menstrual cycle, a couple of days ago- only one day early before the usual. thing is up until my cycle, i have been wet and ‘gushy’ inside, unlike the usual dry spell. the blood flow started extremely heavy, with a few very tiny clots (like unusually smaller than normal, i have nevr seen them that small) and up until now only 2 days later has progressively tapered down to a clear watery sticky substance with streaks of blood. does anyone think i need to worry? being logical and knowing the hormone cycle i realize it is not possible to have a ‘true’ cycle during pregnancy but i’m just wondering has anyone else had a mimic menstrual cycle during pregnancy? or perhaps have suggestions as to what is causing these different symtoms. i have no rash or burning sensation and i’m happily married if you know what i mean so that pretty much rules out PID. just wondering if anyone thinks i should go invest in a pregnancy test… have any other mommies experienced this degree of bleeding?

    • ANSWER:
      Take a test. If it’s positive, you need to go to the doctor. It’s possible you just had an early miscarriage, and you need to be checked.

      If that was an early miscarriage, you will still get positive tests for as long as a couple of months.

  5. QUESTION:
    I just found out I have fibriods, and a cyst on my ovary.. need options!?
    I just turned 30 less than a month ago and just found out I have fibroids and a cyst on my ovary… I had been bleeding for about a month straight and got very week and tired (found out I was animic). I have had symtoms of pressure on lower abdomin, some pain, breast tenderness, tired, etc… Tommorow I have my apt with the doctor to find out how many, how big and so on. I would like to know what are some of the solutions there are to these problems. I also have Factor V Leiden, a blood clotting gene, so my option of taking hormones are out of the question. Thanks for taking the time…

    • ANSWER:
      I’m 41 years old. I just had a partial hysteroctomy ( i think that is how you spell it). I also had a cyst and fibroids. with the fibroids – my doctor only found one during her exam and the ultrasound only showed one. when the doctor was doing the surgery she found a total of FIVE ! they were on the back side of my uterus they were un-detected by ultrasound and physical exam. but I too had bleeding and it was painful to have sex. my uterus was three times its normal size and i had 5 fibroids. so please tell your doctor everything. my doctor suggested birth control. but with further testing i had to have the surgery. birth control helps the fibroids not to grow anymore. good luck with the doctor. hope everything works out.
