Am I Pregnant or Not?

Here is what happened in a nutshell:
My period was late, I took a pregnancy test, it was positive.
2 days later, I had a second test so thought why not take it? It was negative. I thought it might have been inaccurate since I had just peed & the human growth hormone might not have built back up since I was only 3 days late.
I went to the bathroom this morning & there was a little bit of blood (less than a spot). I was upset, took another test. It was negative. I was bummed.
There hasn't been any blood other than the miniscule amount when I wiped. I have been sleeping like a pregnant women & cramping. NO BLOOD.
My period is only 4 days late at this point, which I know is early, sometimes too early to tell. I was so excited now I'm just confused & upset. I'm NEVER late which is why I felt so confident when taking the test the first time. I'd like to have another baby so much! I'm trying not to get my spirits down but that's hard!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Thank you all for your words of wisdom. It was/is a Chemical Pregnancy. I'd never heard the term before and am still uncertain why it's called that. Anyway, I was initially sad but have decided that there was something that wasn't right about the pregnancy & that's just nature's way of letting me know. It happens & it's alright, there will be more kids when everything is as it should be.

My husband & I decided to stop ""trying", it takes the joy out of sex & our daily lives, constantly waiting to see if I'm pregnant or not. Things should flow much smoother & be more organic (I know, I'm such a hippie!).

Thank you all again for your help. Better luck next time...

I had an experience very similar to what you are describing. When I got the the DR's office, she said my test was Negative ( after 3 positives at home)and she described what is called a chemical pregnancy. Essentially, the fertilization occurs, but it doesn't implant correctly, so your body thinks it is pregnant for a few days.

The VERY NEXT cycle, I became pregnant with my adorable son. I wish you luck- don't stress out about it!

Sounds like what happened to me back in December. It turned out to be a chemical pregnancy like the previous poster mentioned. I'd call your doctor. Good luck!

The best way to know for sure is to make an appt to see your doctor and have them run a blood test.

i think there's a very big chance you are pregnant because i know that you can get a false negative but not a false positive wait at least 3 more days and take another test or go to do a blood test.

I know you can spot when you're first pregnant. My first pregnancy I think I was 7 weeks and spotted and thought I was going to mis-carry but didn' was just some light spotting. I'd wait a day or two and then if still no period, call your OB.

Good luck!

I would go to the Dr and have a blood test done. It sounds like a chemical pregnancy to me. I had one back in April.
