I have two children..I breastfeed and typically I understand you dont have a period with this. The first month after my 2nd child I started my period. It stoppped again for 3 months and it just started again at the beginning of October. I just feels so wierd compared to what is normal for me. I have horrible headaches every evening, always so tired (but part of that could be from chasing 2 small children around all day). I am starting to get acid reflux (which I usually only get while pregnant) and my stomach looks like im about 5 months along. I have taken 4 HPT's and all negative. and the complicated part is, I hvae no other for sure signs to indicate pregnancy. I am one of the 15% of women who has low horomone level. so therefore I dont get morning sickness, I don't have a weak stomach for stuff that doesnt appeal to me when Im pregnant. I just dont have the symptoms most women get. So it makes things very difficult. Yes its a blessing but can make things hard to figure out. I was hoping to get any advice from anyone. Im so stuck..cant find any good information online. And no one in my my family has ever breastfed so they are not sure if thats causing a stirr in my body. thanks for your time and help.
I would say head to your doctor for a blood test. They can confirm if you have HCG, the pregnancy hormone, in your blood. Otherwise it's just a guessing game. Good luck!
thanks a bunch..its kinda stressful..would love another kid but just wanna know when..lol
Go to your doctor. They will be able to tell you for sure. Those HPTs are no where near as accurate as the Doctor. Better for you to know now and be able to plan for the next little guy/gal then find out later when complications arise.
you should get to doctor. you may be pregnant or may be some kind of medical problem like a tumor or something else.
Thanks everyone..I am scheduled for some blood test. so we will see where that takes us..:)
I will surely let ya know wat i find out. I am blessed to gave a mother who works in the hospital so she is able to order test for me....and I hope it dont cost to much..thats why i am avoiding my ob bc they will want to run urine blood and prob do ultrasound. and Im sure my ins. comp. wouldnt like it so i would have alot of bills..So im trying to b sure before i call them up. It kinda nice to know im not alone on this. but i will def let you knw how it works out.
Did you find anything out? Let us know what's going on!
Nothing yet. My ob cancelled blood test and told me to see my family doctor that it may be somethin other than pregnancy. But unfornately I have to wait 2 weeks to see them..But my obgyn didnt sound extremely concerned. So that is somehwat of a good thing I guess. But If i want to pay for blood test I can..bc insurance wont pay if a doctor didnt order. So I guess Im goin to wait it out a little more. I guess if it is pregnancy i will find out when it starts moving. I already take plenty of vitamins bc I breastfeed my youngest. so I will continue to take care of myself until I find out for sure. Thanks to everyone here who replies..it really helps me alot. Thanks again
