Welcome to the board. I'm sorry you are unsure and have 2 weeks still to wait. The two week wait can be so hard sometimes. Since you missed pills at times, it's definitely possible that you could've gotten pregnant while on the pill. It could also just be your body reacting to the ups and downs in the hormone levels (from missing pills and then doubling up on them).

I'm sorry you have to wait 2 weeks to find out. If you are really concerned about it, you could ask your doctor for a blood test. Honestly though, if you are pregnant and already experiencing some symptoms, you should be able to get a positive result pretty soon. The home pregnancy tests detect HCG in your urine, which your body starts to produce once implantation has occurred. The hormone shifts and increase in HCG after implantation are what causes early pregnancy symptoms. HCG usually doubles every 2 days, so if you are pregnant, you should be able to get a positive result soon (like within a week), so maybe you can just retest a week from when you tested last to see what happens. Good luck!!

Thanks! Still having cramping, so highly doubt this is just ovulation. And, Im noticing increased needs to pee, but just in the morning. Going to try again on Thursday (6 days before, but the HPT i have reads up to 6 days prior)...

I am with you right now... I am having to wait ( thankfully not for 2 more weeks, id go insane) to take a blood test at the doctors... I have gotten 2 positive results and 3 negative... but from your symtoms is seems as if you could be pregnant!! But we all know how symptoms are.. you can talk yourself right into them.

I answered your other post, but wanted to answer here as well in case you didn't see it. The bleeding could be your period coming early due to stopping the pill. When you stop taking the pill, your body adjusts to the shift in hormones. Since that is what normally happens during the week you get your period while on the pill, your body could be reacting that way again with the drop in hormones. If it was just now implantation bleeding, you wouldn't be having pregnancy symptoms yet because those don't usually start until after implantation has occurred and you start producing HCG.

If you are really having symptoms of early pregnancy, a HPT would most likely come up positive at this time. I know you said you were planning to test on Thursday, so it's up to you if you wait until them or try to test sooner. Good luck!

thanks for your feedback! i really freaked myself out last night. hopefully, dont wake up peeing the bed again tonight :) have no idea what that was all about- possible that the cramps were bothering me and i was trying to releave pressure subconsciencely??

but in all serious, as the day progressed today, i feel less and less" pregnant". its weird that my period is so screwed up this month and im feeling cramping and such 2 weeks before my period as i did not miss any pills this monnth, but i am thinking i read too much into the symptoms. still have bleeding and cramping today, but all other signs have gone away. only other symptom i am experiencing is sever skin dry patches on my face which is odd since i lean toward the oily side...

still plan on taking a test on thursday (6 days before what should have been my period), esp since sex and exercise can cause bleeding.

sorry for the typos- too lazy tonight to spell check :)
