My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. I am 26 years old and my periods are usually on a 30 day cycle. I had my last period Sept. 25, 2011. In October around the time my cycle should have come my breast got really sore, more than with my period and I was spotting but you could only see it when I would wipe. Here it is November 4th and no period, yet I have taken 2 test and both have said negative. I feel weak, I get hot when im normally cold, I want to sleep a lot. I have felt bloated like my stomach is hard, and have noticed that ive felt as little sick to my stomach. Can we finally be expecting our first child?

I took 7 pregnancy tests that all came back negative, having been pregnant 3 times before I knew I was pregnant with my 4th. I still had spotting like you were talking about so I went to obgyn and sure enough I was pregnant. I took those tests in a 6 week time frame. Good Luck!

Pregnancy symptoms differ from woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnany. Some women experience signs or symptoms of pregnancy within a week of conception. For other women, pregnancy symptoms may develop over a few weeks or may not be present at all. In addition to a missed period, some women notice changes in their breasts, such as tenderness or swelling. Feeling fatigued or more tired is a pregnancy symptom which can also start as early as the first week after conception. Nausea or morning sickness usually develops 2 to 8 weeks following conception, but not all women experience this. I have 3 children and never experienced morning sickness. The sudden rise of hormones in your body can cause you to have headaches early in pregnancy. Frequent urination happens around 6 to 8 weeks following conception. Some women have food cravings or food aversions during early pregnancy. A pregnancy test checks for hCG levels. hCG is a hormone that is only produced during pregnancy. can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 - 14 days after conception by a urine test. In general the hCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8 - 11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline and level off for the remainder of the pregnancy. I think it is a good time to make an appointment with your gynecologist/obstetrician. If you are pregnant, you will want to start taking prenatal vitamins and begin your prenatal care.

Since you and your husband are trying to conceive, I really hope that you are pregnant with your first child. But, hoping and knowing are two different things, right? Schedule an appointment with your gynecologist. He or she can do an ultrasound in the office. A blood hCG may be done to check if indeed you are pregnant. Best wishes, Maryann

Thank, Maryann for your quick response. I feel different and my friends keep telling me that im pregnant and tbat if I take a home pregnancy test it will not usually show positive until about 6 weeks. Is that true? I really hope I am, I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. Are any of my symptoms a given with being pregnant? I also am dizzy and need to urinate more. Thanks again for all your help. I will keep you up to date when I get some news.
