I have been feeling nauseaus, constant headaches, and a few migraines when I normally don't get them (I usually get ONE a couple days before my period) for the past 4 weeks. Recently, I have had cramping and my breasts have been tender and on a couple days swollen.
I had one period on 8/22. I was sick with severe hives/nausea for a whole week (starting 8/31) and had to take 25 mg. benedryl, atarax and methylprednisolone (steriods 6 day pack). I should also mention that I take birth control and I never miss a pill. I had another period on 9/19 but it was unusual- VERY light and only lasted one day with some bleeding. I thought it might be the steriod use that is making me feel like this or maybe hypoglycemia. I HAD to eat every 2 hours or else I would get VERY nauseaus and throw up. Normally I could go 4 to 5 hours without eating.
I took an HPT on 9/26 after 2 weeks of constant nausea and dizziness, it came out negative. 2 days ago I took another HPT after 4 weeks of nausea, 3 days of cramping and 1 week of breast tenderness (Confirm Clearly test) and it came out positive. I went to the doctor and took a urine test - NEGATIVE... Took a blood test and anxiously waiting for the results.... I will find out today.
I did some research on the Confirm Clearly test and apparantly many women have had false positives and have complained to the company...
I should also mention that if I am pregnant, that this will be an unplanned pregancy. BUT- now I really really really hope that I am.... DH wanted to wait, but I am going to be 36 this month and wouldn't mind if it happened sooner.
I was hoping to have a planned pregnancy so that I can prepare, take folic acid, follow a good diet, be good weight, and be MEDICATION FREE!!! (that is my biggest worry if I am pregnant because I am also taking AD along with all those other meds I took when I was sick).
Please help me with any advice or opinions that you have. I am so anxious!!!
