<div align="center">I was told I should post my story here and maybe I could get some answers or opinions. It's long lol.

Back in April I was due for a perido on around the 26th. I didn't have one. 2 weeks later in May I finally had one. It was long and lasted for 7 days. I normally have it for 5 days. I did continue to have my peridos since then. But they are very short for my normal. They lasted 3.5 days. And they are light. Before April I had a 28-29 day cycle. It changed to a 32 day cycle. But my most recent perido was a 29 day cycle.

I also have a lot of CM on my 1st day of my perido now. It's never been like that before. Not only was I having these weird peridos, I have most of the common pregnancy signs. I was nauseated, tired more than otfen, sore nipples, tender/bigger breast, my temp stay raised, I had no appeitie, constipation, a lot of gas, darker areolas, the tiny bumps on my areolas raised and enlarge. You would think I'm pregnant but all my test were BFNs!!!!!

I'm greatly confused! Lately I been having dull achy pains in my pelvic area. Now I have been seeing a doctor about it since June and she doesn't know what's going on. I had a pap done, it came back normal. Last week I had a pelvic sonogram to check for cyts. My ovaries are fine. My doctor is baffled. My tummy was been growing as the weeks past. If I'm really am pregnant I would be around 18-19 weeks. My tummy shows it but I still get BFNs. I read and was told you could still have peridos while pregnant. I was also told several stories about women being pregnant but would keep getting BFNs. They wouldn't find out until their 7-8 month. I wonder what's really going on with me. I did have a blood test done in July and that too was BFN, but I was bleeding when it was done. I read it could show up neg if youre bleeding. I also notice a faint thick dark line going down under my belly button to my pubic bone. I was told that might be the linea negra.

I'm so confused... and I think I'm just going crazy LOL

Hi. I'm sorry that I can't be any help but since no one responded I just wanted to offer you some support. Maybe you could do some research on-line about pregnancy & negative blood tests, continuing periods & things like that.
I know that the pg tests measure a hormone that pregnant women produce, so maybe there is a condition where it goes undetected or doesn't show up at all.
Try different doctors & get an ultrasound done (if you haven't already)

I can't really think of anything else & i don't want to give you inaccurate advice. If I was in this situation, I would act as if I am pregnant (take vitamins, eat healthy, get plenty of rest). Just in case you are, you'll be healthy.

Good luck & I hope you find out what's going on. Be your own advocate, do a lot of reseach & be healthy.

I think by now youd definately get a positive test, but just for peace of mind go to a Dr's office and tell them your concerns!

I have been going to the doctors since June and they can't figure what's going on. I have told them my concerns and all. But she thinks it's all in my head. Well my tummy is growing and I haven't been gaining weight. Something is really going on. My friend thinks I should see a Specialist instead. I think so too since the doctor is really a P.A. I haven't test in a while. I plan to test if my perido stops. I heard and read some women have theirs til their 5th month.[/

It is very possible to have your period while preggo. My mom had hers for 5mths with me.
However, you stated that you recently had a pelvic sonogram to check for cysts. If you were indeed pregnant, the tech or doc would have seen the baby at that time. Even if you were as early as 7 weeks, they would have been able to see the fetus.

I had a similar situation. The possible reasons are pregnancy (not likely), cysts (which you ruled out), thyroid problems (somewhat likely), and liver problems. If you've ever used needles or had sex with someone who has/does use IV drugs then you may have Hepatitis. Otherwise you may have some other liver disorder which can cause abdominal swelling as well as nausea and other "pregnancy" symptoms. If you rule all of these things out then I would get on birth control. It could just be hormone related and being on birth control for a while will straighten that out. GL!!!

Yeah.... Hepatitis would be a no. No possible way. I forgot to mention the nausea and tiredness had subsided a while ago. The only thing that's going on is the pelvic pain. It started again this weekend. Since there were no cyts I don't understand why the pain.
