My period has always been irregular so that's what makes everything so difficult... I haven't gotten my period for 2 minths now. I was getting it regularly from May-September/October right at the end if the month or beginning on the next month. I was supposed to get it on Halloween or the next day keeping with that schedule, however it never showed up. My fiance and I had unprotected sex twice near the middle of the month (either the 14th and the 16th or the 15th and the 17th of October) and again near the end of the month. Then we did again near the middle of November.

Starting 2 1/2-3 weeks ago my boobs have gotten so tender. Like even wearing a bra is painful. And they feel extremely full and don't fit well in my bra anymore. Then for the last 2 weeks I've been feeling super nauseous pretty much all day, but it's most severe in the morning. I have a strong stomach and rarely throw up normally so I haven't actually gotten sick, but yesterday morning I woke up around 6 and had to run for the bathroom because I thought I was going to barf. Then an hour later it got that intense again. I usually feel better after I eat but it's a battle to find anything I can choke down without losing it just thinking about eating it. I've always been emotional, but a week or so ago I started crying hysterically because I thought the cat looked sad haha (ridiculous... I know). I've nevet been that bad... Plus I can't listen to Christmas music without crying haha I work at a tanning salon and there are some lotion smells I'm not fond of, but lately I've had to lock myself in the back room where I can't smell them so I don't yack. Plus I've been exhausted lately. I'm normally a night owl and now I can't keep my eyes open past 9 pm. My lower back has a dull ache all day, I've been getting random headaches, and the last few days I've been lightheaded and dizzy. I took my temp a few times over the last few weeks and it's been up anywhere from 1/2 a degree to a degree.

Basically I figured I'm getting sick/working too much/etc. Pregnancy never crossed my mind until last week when I was crying about not having tin foil (lol) my fiance was like, "Jesus woman... Are you pregnant?!?"

Now I know the logical thing to do would be to get a pregnancy test. The thing is twice I've freaked out and thought I was pregnant, bought a bunch of tests, and nothing. And I would think I had symptoms because I was sure I was pregnant. This time feels different though. Just looking for some imput from an outside source before bringing anything up to my fiance, wasting money on tests, and feeling sad when it comes back negative. Sorry for writting a book haha Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Go buy a test, just make sure you only buy one. :) Take it and go from there. If it's negative, call your doctor and see if you can get a blood test so you don't continue to buy HPTs. :) Good luck!
