    Pregnancy advice

    I feel pregnant with signs such as nausea, fatigue, back pain and full breasts. I got a little bit of spotting today, 2 days after my expected period. I have tried the home pregnancy test yesterday and today, still negative. Any advice on whether I am pregnant?

    only way to know for sure is a blood test at the dr.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the advice. Do you know how accurate is the blood test and when should I go test? Also, how much does it cost?

    i think that the blood tests are fairly accurate. no idea of what they cost though, both times i took the urine test at home it came back positive almost immediately. (the last one came back positive 4 days BEFORE my period was due!)

    Am a bit depressed given that there will be a chance of not being pregnant after all.

    will you be MORe depressed if you continue thinking that you might be for another week and then finding out that you aren't or will you be more depressed finding out tomorrow that you are not?

    if you are spotting, it is possible that it is implantation bleeding. i had some 4 days before my period was due. when i researched it on the internet, that's what it seemed to be. when i went to the dr at QMH, they called it a "threatened miscarriage" and sent me for an ultrasound at 6 weeks to see if the embryo was still there.

    True. What is implementation bleeding? How different is it from period? So what happened afterwards? Did you have a healthy bb or was it a miscarriage?

    implantation bleeding only happens to some women, some of the time. it happens when the embryo implants itself in the uterine wall.

    i DID not miscarry, i'm 7 months pregnant. will possibly deliver as early as 23 jan!(6 weeks early)
