Am I pregnant??

Hi all! Been having a read through some forums and has got my brain in overdrive. I had my last period on 13 June exactly (wrote the date down) and still haven't had my period. Since about Feb/March I have been having irregular periods. They were always like a a few days late then last month June it was over a week or more late, hence why I wrote down the date. As I was starting to think I was miscalculating the dates.

Anyway, I have took 3 tests and all say negative...well except I have noticed barely there lines in the other Windows. They are really faint and I think I may even be imagining I see it lol. People are saying a line is a line and that it's a positive. I hate the not knowing, I want a straight yes/no. From the calculator it said I would be about 6 weeks just now and given this would be my 4th pregnancy I am worried as I don't really feel any signs as such in which I've always felt nauseous previously and been really sick.

I only have one daughter just now is almost 5 so it would be the perfect time for another. The other 2 pregnancies unfortunately didn't go past 8 weeks (miscarriage). So I am extremely anxious and I almost don't want to face going to doctor incase I am faced with bad news. Would I always definitely bleed if I had miscarried really early? Help please I don't want to tell any friends/family as can't face the heartache of dealing with other people if I am not pregnant or even if I am I don't want to get partners hopes up until I know for sure xxxx

Hi there

I am sorry to hear you have been so worried about your later period. I completely understand that seeing a doctor would make you anxious. However I do think if your periods have been irregular for a while and you're getting negative pregnancy tests when you haven't got your period it would be a good idea to see your GP so they can run some tests just to make sure everything is okay? That way at least you will know what is going on.

I hope this helps

Best wishes



Thanks for your reply. There's a really really faint like on the tests though, doesn't seem to be getting darker. I will try post some pics to see if anyone else can notice lines. X


Perhaps try a digital test? I've read a few reviews lately and they seem to be really simple / obvious. They're a bit more expensive but it might put your mind at rest? xx

Hi there, if you are getting even feint lines on the test then it means your pregnant. for your piece of mind I would get a digital test as that will tell you in writing, pregnant or not pregnant. you can even get the one that tells you how far along you are too.
