Need advise...big time.

Okay so let's start out, my periods are always normal and on the same date or maybe a day off (4th or 5th). A few months ago, in September I think, I got it late on the 8th and it lasted a few days (with pms symptoms for a week or two) Been through light random spotting each month since then. This month, I am now going on three weeks late for my period (at least expected some light period like I've been getting) with extreamly sore breast all month and have noticed darkening of areolas for the past few months. To top everything off my stomachs expanded, round on bottom and now bloated looking up top. I also feel weird twitch type feelings or what I would think feels like a light kick but I doubt myself thinking it's gas or just in myind. Your probably thinking umm take a test? I'm hesitant because I went through pregnancy symptoms in July, light spotting sore breast and morning sickness and got three negative tests. I'm not stressed and even in high stress situations I've never missed a period. I don't want to waste the money on a test just to get a negative. So I just need some advise should I wait for my period or just take a test. I don't necessarily want to be pregnant but is it possible it's all in my mind? Or am I just in denial. Hi need some input! Thanks

Hello and welcome to the board!

If it were me, I'd probably take a test to at least put my mind at ease. Considering that you are never late and have many of the signs of pregnancy, you may want to take one. Have you tried looking for pregnancy tests at the dollar store? They sell them there around here and they work fine (that is how I confirmed my last pregnancy). If you take a test and it comes back negative, you may want to call your doctor and explain to him/her what is going on so they can rule out pregnancy. Best of luck to you and please let us know what you find out.

Thank you for the advise! I gave in and took a test and within three seconds it showed up positive. I'm so excited :)
