    Getting Blood Test despite Negative HPT

    Hi Everyone!

    Hope you are well. The first day of my last period was 11/15/13. I missed my period in December and now January. While I understand that most of you will say that I am NOT pregnant - I am still going to get a blood test done this week. While the symptoms are little, they are very abnormal, here is what I have been feeling:
    • tender breasts
    • very gassy
    • thirsty and urinate a lot (this is normal though)
    • v-discharge
    • feel like I have gained weight
    • stomach feels odd - I look at it and it looks like its forming a baby bump (but according to charts I would be nine weeks, not sure if that would be forming)
    • headaches
    • heartburn (this is a new one in the past week)
    • here and there feel a little nausea
    • tired a lot
    I have read up on how a HPT could never work due to many different factors, and after the first two negatives I moved on from thinking I was pregnant - however, in the most recent days my body tells different.


    I honestly haven't been obsessing about this but its just odd, since I am going to move forward with the blood test. Anywho...just curious if anyone has been in this position.

    Thanks!

    I would say there is a possibility of pregnancy. Some women never show on home pregnancy tests and have to have a blood test or ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. Heck, some women have period-like bleeding in early pregnancy so have no idea they're pregnant.
