Hi All,

I am going to be 45 next month. My periods have been regularly 24-28 day cycles no later then 28 they last 5 days. I was sick with bronchitis about a month ago & I lost 10lbs while I was sick. My last date of my period was 01/30/11 on 02/05/11(last day of my period) & 02/17 I had unprotected sex. I was spotting brown discharge on 02/12-15/11. My breasts are growing and very tender, my nipples have clear discharge if I squeeze them haven't seen that in years, I have cramping but more like twinges, I feel slightly nauseated, yesterday I started having light headiness dizziness when bending over or standing, I feel bloated, I have noticed I have to pee a little more then my norm, and I have been very thirsty and my appetite has increased. I am not on medications, haven't recently stopped taking birth control. I haven't been under any stress.I have started taking vitamins recently but just your regular stuff Centrum, vitamin d, folic acid and niacin. I have taken 4 HPT tests all negative on 02/26/11, 03/03/11 and 03/06/11 and today. I had a doctors appointment today, he is doing HCG Serum Test but says we wont know results for a week. I am not wishing for pregnancy although I always wanted another child but if anything I am nervous to be at my age as I was when I had my one and only child at age 17 she is 27 and has 2 children of her own. Could this be hormonal? Just curious has anyone else had this problem and found out they were pregnant even though they tested negative? If I am according to what I have calculated I would be 6 weeks along right now...

I have heard of cases where women will have trouble getting a positive on a HPT, they only get them on the blood test. What type of HPTs are you using, although it shouldn't make a difference with how far along you could possible be?
