Hello moms!, I'm 22 years old and i'm 100 % sure i've been pregnant for about 2 months now. My last normal period was August 8th, 2012. The following month in September I bled for five days like my normal period (my cycle is 28 days) I had bright red blood but it was much lighter than my period is (not enough to soak a whole tampon/pad) and it didn't have the slight odor menstrual blood has, it was odorless. And in these days past 3 days this month I've had some spotting, bright red blood on the first day, brownish red on the second day, light pink yesterday and nothing at all today. I'm not proud of it whatsoever but I had an abortion when I was 17, the guy I was dating at the time forced me along with his family to terminate the pregnancy. I believe in god and I'm 100 % pro-life and and completely regret what I did then. In the summer of 2011 I became pregnant again (by the same guy who im am no longer with) I had a miscarriage on November 23rd 2011 at 21 weeks and 2 days. The doctor and nurses told me its rare to have one that late in pregnancy, I think the abortion I had years ago and this past miscarriage last year may be affecting my reproductive organs in some way or another which could mean something is wrong but I feel absolutley fine, and I read some articles about mloar, chemical and eptopic pregnancy and from how i'm feeling I dont have any symtoms to those problems and i've had a miscarriage before and I havent had any abnormal heavy vaginal bleeding or painful cramps i'm sure im not having another one of those. Anyways I have been feeling very pregnant for almost 2 months now with no change and I literally have every single pregnancy symtom there is which i've felt new symtoms every single week that goes by: nausa, fatigue, headaches, mood swings, cravings, increased appetite, increased sex drive, warmer body temperature, light-headedness, frequent urination, gas, bloating, weird dreams, strong sense of smell, breast tenderness & blue veins, backache, fullness in the abdomen, my belly sticks out and its hard/uncomfortable to suck it in..only problem is...I KEEP GETTING NEGATIVE PT's!!. In the past 5-6 weeks or so i've done about 6 tests, 4 of those were HPT's 2 cheap and 2 exspensive digital tests and 2 tests done at clinics. I've been pregnant a few times in the past already so I know exactly how it feels to be pregnant and I know I am I just know it!. I'm planning on getting a blood test soon in hopes that i'll get a positive result, its already driving me crazy with stress because this has never happened to me before. I've visited other websites and read posts by woman who themselves had or have had a friend who knew that they were pregnant and didnt get a positive result until they were 4 months pregnant or even throughout their entire pregnancy even after getting a blood test. My biggest fear is that i'll go get a blood test done and it will be negative and they'll deny me prenatal care and an ultrasound. I really need an ultrasound so I can see whats going on with my baby and find out things like my due date etc. I'm already taking prenatal vitamins with 1,000 mcg of folic acid and eating healthy too but I really wanna know whats up. Does anyone have any good advice they can give me? or similar experiences? Let me know moms, I need some insight on all this issue!
I'm not entirely sure whats wrong so I'm not going to guess but I do want to point out a few things. First prior abortions should not impact any of the other pregnancies you have had. Its also entirely likely that you are not pregnant and instead have a different health issue. You mentioned that your belly is sticking out already... That doesn't normally happen with pregnancy until closer to 4 months I'm in my 4th month with my second pregnancy (normally second time mom's stick out faster) and I'm barely sticking out and I can still comfortably suck in. I don't know your insurance situation but go to an Ob Gyn that has an ultrasound machine in their office and tell them you are concerned that you may have PCOS. it causes basically all of the symptoms of pregnancy including missed periods. Just let them know that you are having all kinds of issues and that you would like to get an ultrasound to find out what is going on. I have yet to meet a doctor that won't perform an ultrasound for a suspected diagnosis as they are always covered by insurance for certain health conditions including PCOS. I have PCOS that's why I know about that aspect. Also not to scare you but it really could be something other than a pregnancy. Its important to get checked out sooner rather than later. Good Luck
Periods can vary due to stress level, certain foods that you're eating (or not eating), lack of sleep, as well as all kinds of different things! Alot of times, woman believe their pregnant because they are not getting their period, but it might have to do with other things. I would take at home tests seriously, mostly because it's been multiple different ones. Just go to see your doctor, or if you cant afford one, go to a walk in clinic. Doctors pretty much use tests that are similar to that of a at home test. But they can also send you in for a blood test, or as you said, an ultrasound.

Hmm your cycle could be messed up due to stress? Have you been taking any antibiotics? If you haven't already get yourself down to the doctors and get a pregnancy test done there if it's still negative ask them if they could send you for some blood tests. & as you've had previous miscarriages explain this to your DR & say you are concerned & wish for them to get to the bottom of this as to why this is all going on
I didn't know I was pregnant until I was 19 weeks gone and I suffer from PCOS so it came as a bit of a shock to me & my partner.
