I am turning 44 and I feel like I am pregnant - sore breasts & pressure on my lower abdomen, back on February I had a miscarrige at 6 weeks- I have 5 negative tests at home and a negative blood test but have never been late in my life except the 2 times I have been pregnant and had a miscarriage - my last period was June 13.... I am seeing my Dr. In 10 days but I am wondering if it is still possible to be pregnant or is there something wrong ?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Pregnancy is most likely not the cause because of all negative pregnancy tests.
You could very possibly be experiencing Pre-menopause issues.
Since you symptoms are not uncommon or severe it is probably something simple such as hormonal changes, even if it isn't premenopausal.
For now, there is no further action to take until you see your doctor. I strongly suggest that you have a pelvic exam. You may also want to be checked for ovarian cysts which can change your menstrual cycle.
If you do have any severe symptoms such as debilitating cramps, vomiting, faintness etc, you should go to the ER.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. In February when I had a miscarriage I had 2 ultrasounds - one before where we saw a healthy
Pregnancy with a heartbeat and one after the miscarriage to check that there where no complications, I have no other symptoms of perimenopause- no hot flashes, no vaginal dryness, nothing. I guess I will post once I see my Dr. and hopefully we can solve this soon- I feel exactly how I felt when I was pregnant. Bodies are a mistery at times.
