It's always one red line

I have been to concieve for over a year. This time around, i got that injection and doctor told us to hahe regular sex on my high days but past week or so, i have all the pregnancy symptoms but I know my period isnt due for a week more atleast. i think im going crazy or what...everytime i used to take the test and it turned out to be negative somehow i felt i had jinxed it cuz right after taking the test i would get my period in an hour or so! Hoping for a positive outcome this time :(

I feel weird

I've had sex 3 times this month. 5th, 19, 28th. My last period was from June 28-3rd of July. My period is 3 days late. I'm moody. I feel crampy but no blood. My stomach feels weird. I feel nausea but I haven't thrown up. I don't really have a craving for anything.. Matter of fact my appetite has diminished a bit. My nipples aren't sore but they are a bit perkier than usual. I'm scared to take the test early. I'm hoping for a positive!!! Do you think I could be pregnant?

Ive had a urine pregnancy test and and hcg hormone test and my hormones was at .59.... I have intercourse with my husband a week ago and it was the very last time I am currently in the field and its unsafe to be here when pregnant. I was told by the doctor that if im pregnant it could be too early to tell and that I could only be one week. Ive been nauseous tired hungry emotional ive had bad back pain peeing all the time my breast are tender ive been getting headaches acne on my face and chest my hair and nails are growing and if I hold my pee too long it starts to cramp up. The same day that the doctor said I could b too early to tell, without any other examination he said that he is going to put me on birth control cause it could be withdrawal from the depo without really being sure himself. Still not sure if I can b but I just started seeing a like pinkish blood or discharge. HELP BEFORE I DO SOMETHING THAT COULD POSSIBLY HURT MY BABY THAT OM STILL NOT SURE ABOUT.

29 days..

I'm 29 days late on my period. I took a test like 3 and a half weeks ago because I was feeling very nauseous but it was negative. I've been extremely tired, constipated, boobs are getting bigger, and I've been breaking out on my face some. Oh and ive been having crazy mood swings!! I'm pretty nervous to take a test again just because it'll be my first baby if I am pregnant. I'm having mixed emotions, just ready to find out for sure!!

Hi, I'm 37 and almost 7 weeks with my first pregnancy. I'm excited and scared all at the same time. I had some brown discharge for about a week after I tested positive, but apparently that's not that uncommon. I've had some dizziness, but nothing too crazy. Had breast tenderness but that's already easing. But I am sooooo tired!!

i feel nausea, tired, bloated, hot flushes at night, eat when i feel like it, struggle to sleep at night but yet i did a test and it shows negative. Is it in my mind or can it be early?

My feeling in early pregnancy

I felt very sick, always vomiting and not being able to eat. But now i don't know if I am pregnant, my period is late with one week. Can I be pregnant? Because I lost my first baby a day after birth two months ago so I really need a baby right now.

Could i be pregnant?

I feel nausea rvery night last 3-4 nights i havent been on the nuva ring since may had a normal period last month im 2 days late so far been cramping having lower back pain sore nipples and think i may have a yeast infection. I hv 3 kids already but nvr felt like this w them.
