Ok, the other half and I (and a couple of mates) are convinced I'm pregnant..

I've done Four Pregnancy Tests (First Response - the one's that are supposed to be able to tell up to 6 days before your missed period.) As that one was advised to me by a friend. Another friend said First Response was a lod of rubbish and she didn't show as positive on a urine test until she was 6 weeks gone.

My symptoms are...

Period 7 days late
Sore breasts
Gained 5lbs (VERY unlike me, I never gain weight.. ever!)
Metallic taste in my mouth as if I've just had one of those disgusting fillings from the dentist but this only seems to happen in the morning.
Had the odd (by "odd" I mean I've had it twice)... bit of queasy/sicky feeling in my tummy. Again, very unlike me as I get sick very rarely. I haven't actually vomitted though.
Clumsiness
Peeing - alot!!!

So yeah... I'm very confused. I thought at first it had something to do with the fact that I only came off the Pill last month, having been on it for a long while - I figured my body is just getting used to not being pumped with hormones. ... But most around me are sure I'm pregnant. Yet, I've had no confirmation. I'm struggling to get an appointment with my GP because I'm at work during the week and I tried for one of their ultra-rare Saturday appointments but as usual they were fully booked. Sad isn't it, when you can order a pizza quicker than you can be seen by a doctor..

Anyway before I start ranting!! Anybody having this happen to them to? Or anyone had it happened or know someone it happened to? I'm veeeeeery confused!!

Good Morning Shay,

Welcome to HealingWell. This is Kitt.  :-)

Taking a home pregnancy test can be nerve-wracking, especially if you're not sure you can trust the results. Knowing when and how to take a home pregnancy test — as well as some of the pitfalls of home testing — can help ensure that your reading is accurate.

Many home pregnancy tests claim to be accurate as early as the first day of a missed period, but for the most reliable results, it's a good idea to wait until one week after a missed period. Home tests may not be as precise at the start of a pregnancy, and some women develop detectable amounts of pregnancy hormones later than others do. In addition, most manufacturers recommend retaking a home pregnancy test in a few days — a negative result shortly after your missed period doesn't necessarily mean that you're not pregnant.

Although rare, it's possible to get a positive result from a home pregnancy test when you're not actually pregnant.

Good luck and I would wait a week and then try a different brand.

I agree with Kitt. Use the different brand of pregnancy test after one week. After that, if you still get a negative result, I would go to your doctor and discuss the symptoms with him/her. Then again, if it's positive, congratulations! Let us know. Good luck.

You can go on vacation quicker than you can see the doctor, my friend... //^_^\\'
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Hi Shay,

Its recommended that you wait a until your period is at least ten days late before taking a pregnancy test but as far as the other symptoms, I know when I was experiencing a couple of those, like the late period and frequent urination, I was tested at my dr.'s office and it was negative and she said it was late because our periods tend to "switch courses" over time, causing them to be late but will soon return to normal, but she never told me why I had to "go" all the time, stress could be a factor with that.

I do know coming off the pill can also give you some symptom of being pregant...It happened to me on a few occassions. It is your body adjusting without the pill, it can go through a heap of changes depending on the individual, ie sore breats, weight gain, cramping, headache and generally feeling unwell. See your doc to ease your mind but if you were on the pilll for a long period of time the odds of falling pregnant are minimal...Not saying it cant happen though!!. Take it easy and let us know how it all pans out. Gill.x
