Not sure how all to start this other than to just get into it. My last period started on 10/15, and while we aren't ttc, my guy and I haven't really been careful. Oh, and I'm 28. I started having symptoms about 3 weeks ago (11/2), first sore boobs, feeling a little off, and then fatigue (nothing I thought about as weird). Then I started noticing that I was having to go to the bathroom every 2 hours or less and that certain smells (mint, matches, and cigarettes specifically) were stronger and bothering my stomach. Weird, but not too weird, and as there was no pain or discomfort or weird smell with the urine I brushed it off. Then the nausea kicked in about 4 days after the soreness in my boobs. Since then, the nausea has gotten worse but comes and goes, usually around 10am and again at 6pm, my boobs are still killing me (I either have to wear a supportive bra or nothing at all, and either way they still hurt), the fatigue is so bad most days I feel like I haven't slept in days,and I feel like I'm practically living in the bathroom. Other symptoms have also made their appearance: food cravings and aversions (craving fruity sweets like Strawberry jam, acai juice, as well as milk, aversions to nuts, mayo, and some deli meats), my lower back hurts (some days worse than others), my hips feel loose or in slight pain, I've been having mild cramps that range from feeling like little flutters to bad gas to a weird pinching/pulling sensation (usually centered around the middle of my lower abdomen), and my all time favorite of mood swings (nothing like crying for 2 hours straight cause he sounded like he was having too pleasant of a dream or biting your best friend's head off because she dared to tell me to take a hot shower and relax). I have also suddenly started gaining weight out of nowhere (~2lbs/week), and none of my clothes fit aside from some sweatpants I just bought because my own jeans (and even his) were too tight/uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour. I'm sure I'm forgetting about something in this list of symptoms, I've been forgetting a lot of things lately (even what I'm saying mid sentence).
Well, just before my next period was due (a week late now), I had some really weird spotting that lasted 2 days. It was light, pretty much only when I peed, the wrong color and consistency, and (sorry if tmi) even kinda smelled off. My period is never late and never anything approaching light. This has lead me to check on my CP, which is high (I almost couldn't find it), very soft, and felt like it was closed.
Based on all of my symptoms and the timing of everything, my best friend, who is an experienced midwife, is convinced that I'm pregnant. The problem is, every single hpt and even the blood test I took on Monday has come out negative. I feel like I'm going crazy. My body is telling me that something is going on, all of the symptoms seem to point towards pregnancy, but all the tests say no.
I know that it's not stress, as I have IBS and all my BMs are normal and none of my stress started until well after the symptoms. I know it's not a UTI or BI or other damage to my UT as aside from frequency urination is also completely normal. Nothing has changed in my diet or day to day routine. Aside from some scary and very serious possible conditions (cyst or even cancer), I can't think of anything else that this could be.
Anyone else have any ideas of what is going on? Or experienced this same thing (or know someone who has) and ended up being pregnant?
I have an appointment on Monday for yet another test and an assessment (depending on the test). I'm just so tired of feeling like I'm crazy or feeling like I'm being treated as if I'm crazy...
