SO excited! Now that my original shock has worn off, Im really super excited! <3 Trying to get my crazy brain to shut up. :P





HI ladies. I didnt want to post this because I feel like I might jinx it but I need to get out of my own head. lol Anyway, DH and I have been trying for several years to have a baby but have experienced several losses. Our twins were born at 18w and after their birth, we learned that I need a surgery that will give us a 70% chance of a healthy pregnancy and baby. Ive been driving myself nuts since December 2012 trying to earn and save (we opened a small home business) the almost $9k we need for the surgery. 

Long story short, I have some odd symptoms lately and I THINK I might be pregnant. I posted this anonymously in another group on CM but changed the title after I POAS and it was negative. DH SWEARS the test was faulty from the moment he saw it. Some new symptoms have been added below that DH noted. Ive also taken THREE online surveys..lol and they said I was most likely pregnant but to confirm with a HPTand blood work.  

Symptoms include:

VERY sore breasts, increase in size and veins are more pronounced.

Quite Emotional (not my norm)/Moody *cringe* (not my norm)

Uterine cramping pains. 

Teeth/Gum pain.

Having odd dreams about having conceived which I normally dont have.

Odd body aches. Primarily shoulders, back.

Headaches.

AF is now 2 days date on one calender and 1 day late on my regular calender.

My two pets are much more affectionate toward me than they normally are. Sleeping on my pillow and the other right up against my chest.

I feel like Im STARVING half the time.

I LOVE steak. I could eat it alone without any side dishes. We had steak the other night and it tasted 'funny' to me and I wasnt into it at all. Dh said there was no funny taste to him.

Much more frequent urination.

I know there's more but those are the only ones I can think of right off the top of my head. ;)

PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for us. 

Tested on the 9th. It was negative. :(


PLEASE help me with this. Im driving myself nuts going back and forth in my head about whether Im pregnant or not. Trying to hold out for a few days to test again but its proving to be very difficult. :P


This has been ETA'd for more detail. ;)

    I would get a blood test done if I were you, you could be pregnant, with my son the tests read negative until almost a month late. But it could be something else, none the less go get the test, it will be cheaper then buying OTC tests in the long run, good luck. Oh and my dh always told me I was pregnant before I knew for certain if that helps any :-)

    Im thinking that Ill call and see if I can get an appointment for Monday. Its been driving me nuts and Im trying not to get excited while trying to remain positive. lol VERY hard to do. ;P 

    I agree that the HPTs can get very expensive, very quickly. ;(

    I love that your DH knows before you do. That is awesome. Im truly hoping my DH is right this time! <3

    You want to get pregnant so badly you might have tricked your body into believeing that you are, the mind is a powerful tool. Your stomach could start growing and everything, but there's no fetus. My advice would be to calm down, I know you want a child and not being able to afford the surgery is stressing you out but you have to let nature take its course!

    ;) Funny you say that. The last test I bought was a $1 test and the same one DH thinks is faulty. lol 

    I think its worth another try in the future though. :)

    I know exactly what you are referring to. ;) The condition is called pseudocyesis. I lack most of the symptoms commonly reported and most of the factors found to cause the condition.

    Yes, I really want to have a child but had accepted that it wouldnt happen until we had the surgery completed. If I still have the symptoms listed in the OP, with a negative blood test, then I will consider this remote possibility. I was in the medical field for quite a few years so I have the fortune of knowing what can cause *some* pregnancy symptoms, even in the case of no pregnancy. 

    I will definitely keep that in mind though. ;)
