To be or not to be is the question...

I am 37and have all the symptoms of pregnancy (missed period, nausea, not able to eat, body aches, tired, headaches, constipation, LOTS OF GAS, easily forgetful or loose concentration, etc.) but the 2 tests I took came up negative. I haven't had my period since Thanksgiving Day when I usually am right on time each month. My spouse also believes I am pregnant (he's had tooth aches, sleeping a lot, all things that have happened with his previous children). Is there any way to know if my hCG levels are too low to detect right now? I smell everything and certain smells make me sick to my stomach. Also riding in a vehicle makes me nauseated at times. I know I want and need to eat but just the thought of eating makes me sick. Calculations say I'm 5 weeks and 3 days. Can anyone help?

Yes, it's possible you're pregnant and just not showing on the test; it happens to some women.

I'd assume I was pregnant. If/when you miss a second period, see your doctor for either a blood test or ultrasound. If you don't want to wait, you can ask for a blood test now.
