Could I be pregnant?

My husband and I have been married for a year now and while we aren't necessarily trying for a baby, if it happens it happens. I have always been fairly regular with my cycle (28-30 days max) and this month I am a week past due! I took an at home test yesterday and it was negative. I was a little crampy last week when my period should have started but that was it. Now I'm feeling dizzy/light headed and I'm always very tired. I know that the pregnancy tests can be wrong if tested to early but what do you mothers and mothers to be out there think? When do you think I should test again?

If you're sexually active then there is always a chance you're pregnant. Have you been stressed out lately? That can really screw with your period. Though I have heard of women who were pregnant but won't test positive on a regular pregnancy test.

There is a chance. But I wouldn't think to much of it yet.

I'm usually pretty regular and there are times my period comes 2 weeks late. Usually because i'm stressing out and freaking out about being pregnant.

But I wouldn't rely on a pregnancy test this early yet.

Just have to give it more time and see!

I've actually been less stressed then I have been in a long time. Hubby and I moved across the country a year ago and we are just now starting to really settle in. But even through all the stress I was always regular with my periods. If anything I'll just make a trip to the doctor for a blood test.

Have you gained any weight recently? I know when I gained weight a couple of years ago, it threw my body completely out of whack. All signs and symptoms pointed to pregnancy...except the DOZENS of negative pregnancy tests, both at home and at the clinic. Finally went to see the doc and they did a blood test. Nope. Not pregnant. Turns out the hormone fluctuations caused by my weight gain messed with my period. I went six months without a period before finally my body caught up with itself. Then I bled heavily for four months straight. Stopped that a couple of months ago and now I haven't had a period in two months again. For me to be pregnant now would require the equivalent of the Immaculate Conception. So I know it's just my body screwing with me...again.

Moral of the story? When it comes to your period, don't muck around. If something seems off, go to the doctor and get it checked out.

Oh my! I hope don't have a four month long period! A few years ago I was on a bc that gave me a period every other week and that was to much for me! Did they give you anything for your hormonal imbalances?

They gave me two cycles of progesterone. My estrogen levels were way up because of the rapid weight gain (~80lbs in two months).

Dizzy, tired, sore breasts are the three strongest indicators. Do another test.

Tiny- how long do you think I should wait to test again? My first was yesterday morning.
