Could I be Pregnant?!/pregnancy symptoms but negative test


Hey can someone please help me,

I don't know if I'm pregnant or not, i really hope i am but i don't know. Me and my partner have been having unprotected sex for the past 5 months when my most fertile days are, as i've been using an ovulation test kit to help.

-My period is now 6 days late which its never late
-I have been eating a lot more than usual
-I am bloated all the time and have been for about a week and a half now.
-I haven't really felt sick only one or two days during this time i have felt a little ill for a short amount of time
-On day 4 of my missed period i took a home pregnancy test in the afternoon and it came up negative.
-I have slight cramping off and on which has been happening for the past 8-9 days and also a strange pulling feeling with in the same area as the cramping.

Can anyone please help me with what i should do or if they have any idea with what's going on with me??

Thanks guys :)

Hi Amber, Sorry for the delay in answering. Did you find out anything for sure yet? Did you take a pregnancy test? If you need a FREE test, you can go to a pregnancy resource center. Go to and click on the worldwide directory. Contact them and see when you can go in for the FREE test. Your symptoms sound possibly like pregnancy symptoms. Yes, it can happen that you can be pregnant but the test still show negative. Eventually, the test should show positive if you are pregnant. Write me at and let me know what happens.
