    My menstrual cycle is regular. I have never had a problem wiht it except after mmy surgery ten years ago and my miscarriage 2 years ago but everything has been right as rain since. I PMS the week before my period for a week. The week leading into my period I am fine, cramping and bloating like most wommen, and then I get my period. I get it heavy and with major cramps the first day. Then lighter and normal for 2-3 days. Then I have the end days where there's some spotting and the "aftermath" of a period for about 1-2 days. This month however I pmsed like normal, but....I haven't stopped. The week leading into my period I was sick with chills and constipation and cramps. I was nauseas and had a lot of stomach pains as well. I spotted in the morning the day before my period whihc is abnormal for me. My period came on time hwoever was a lot lighter and lasted only 3 days then was gone just as quickly as it came with no light spotting days.My mood swings are crazy I go from laughing to crying and from happy to angry at my fiance for the smallest things. I'm still bloated, craving, I stand up and get dizzy, I feel nauseas off and on throughout the day. I took a pregnancy test, one of those cheap ones, and it was positive. I took another one, clearblue, and when I took it out of the package the horizontal line was faint but already there then I took it and it came back negative (jsut a darker version of the horizontal line) I have a positive and negative response and I'm worried that these symptoms are something else. Could I be pregnant?

    Yes, you could be pregnant . False positives are pretty rare. What may have happened is the second test was either faulty or not as sensitive as the first one. Try taking another test.
