If I was pregnant, I believe I would have conceived at the tail end of June. On July 9th, I had a faint positive pregnancy test. On the 10th, 11th, and 12th I had negative ones. I had spotting on the 14th, 15th, and 16th and then light to medium period-like bleeding from the 17th to the 22nd. (My periods are usually 7 or 8 days and quite heavy.) I had a lot of light cramping the first couple weeks of July but it had quit by the time I started bleeding. I have since started having strong lower back pain and vivid dreams. I'm always tired and always hungry. 

I have not taken any hpts since July 12th (before the spotting). 
I was certain that I had either had a false positive or a chemical pregnancy but the way I've felt the last couple weeks really makes me wonder....am I just fooling myself? I won't have health insurance for a couple more weeks and I don't have the cash to see the dr before then unless I absolutely have to. I'm almost afraid to take another hpt. :/

Hi there,

It sounds like something is going on for sure.  Are you currently taking birth control?  If so, have you been taking it regularly?  Have you been sick at all in the last month or so?

I know it is hard to do, but I think I'd recommend taking another HPT.  That's the only way you'll know what is going on for sure until you are able to get into the doctor.  Please let us know what you decide to do, and if you take a test, what the results of the test are.  Best of luck to you!
