    What did the home test say?

    Noting is 100% so pregnancy is a possibility.

    I'm curious as well what the home test said. Either way I'd say go to the doctor, but false negatives are much more common than false positives.

    it said not pregnant but im hoping it just because it was one from the dollar store
    resee1974 replied to lovebird79's response:
    it said not pregnant..but its weird cause my symptoms still point to being pregnant..i noticed the whitish discharge last night and usually my stomach kind of hangs over just a little near the (the pooch part of your lower stomach) im chucky not huge so it hangs just a little but for the past two days that part is filling in so its becoming round and I don't have the hang over.
    lovebird79 replied to resee1974's response:
    Maybe wait another week and test again.
    If you are really concerned that you are pregnant, than go to the doctor. If the blood and urine test are negative than it's pretty safe to say you aren't pregnant.

    yea waiting another week is a good idea..ive got a period calendar on my phone and it said from the date of the spotting I wouldn't see a result till maybe next week..then ill still go to the doctor no matter what the test says...cause now where the top of my underpants lays is real tight..i had to go up a size to keep them from digging in..that didn't even happened when I gained a lot of weight before..its weird

    Hi there, I think you are pregnant. But, it is always better to have a pregnancy test after a week. I also wanted to share with you a site that could help you calculate your baby's due date (if you are positive) and more, good luck.
    resee1974 replied to carmela755's response:
    thank you...ive took another home test but it was still negative..but I think my levels are too low to show up..i still very much think im pregnant..symtoms are still here and my husband said my breast are bigger and more swollen than period time..he really believes im pregnant too..the bottom of my stomach is sticking out a little more and it feels a lot different...ive got a doctor appointment tomorrow..fingers crossed..ive check out the link you sent me..thanks again
