I have kept this to myself for the last few months except for one friend who knows what is going on. Maybe someone can advise me on what to do.
I have always been on time for my period, like clockwork, and it has been this way since I first got my period. I remember my OB-GYN telling me that after I had my children my period would probably end up being irregular for a short time but it wasn't. It went back to coming on a very consistent schedule. In April after having sex I didn't get my period at all for two months, no bleeding at all. I took a countless number of pregnancy tests all resulting in negatives. I went to my general practitioner and they did a blood draw which was also negative. I went on with my life thinking maybe there was some reason I didn't have my period and ignored feeling sick. I brushed the feeling sick off as just being overtired and overworked. The third month I had some bleeding...very light for two days and that happened on and off every month until last month and this month where I haven't had any bleeding at all.
October came and I figured I'd find a new OB-GYN (since mine didn't have an appointment for weeks) just to get another Beta HCG. When I went in for the results she said my HCG and Progesterone were very low but I had high testosterone levels and was diabetic. So I got put on Metformin for the tesosterone levels and diabetes and she told me to prepare for a miscarriage. Now...I hadn't had sex since March/April so I was extremely confused. I also had gestational diabetes with my first two pregnancies and never in my life had high testosterone levels. A few more weeks passed and I started feeling some movement in my stomach, which REALLY freaked me out. It started off as just light flutters and has morphed into harder "kicks" I would say. I called my new OB-GYN and she basically told me I was crazy, my progesterone and HCG weren't high enough to have a viable pregnancy, she wouldn't even SEE me in the office for an ultrasound or an exam... She brushed me off. I called my old OB-GYN who had delivered my two girls and they STILL don't have any appointments available. I don't even know what to think. I've been feeling heartburn, which I never feel, still feeling the kicking/rolling sensations in my stomach which I highly doubt are gas and I'm just so suspicious that I can still be pregnant. I've definitely gained weight and haven't changed the way I eat at all. My upper stomach is high and is round but of course I never lost the tremendous amount of weight I gained with my youngest so I would probably just look fat if I was pregnant anyway. When I stand up or lay down you can feel a hardness of my stomach as well. As of now I am treating myself as I am pregnant just in case. The last thing I want is to be pregnant, not know it and have something happen.
What is everyone elses opinon? And please don't think I'm crazy! (I'm not that crazy! lol)
