Question
I think I might be pregnant. My period is almost three weeks late. I feel sick to my stomach quite often after eating. I have gained weight. My taste has changed. I did take two pregnancy tests and both were negative so I waited a week and took another one that was negative. But I still have pregnancy symptoms and no period. Not even spotting. My periods are usually always on time. Sometimes a day early or a day late. My mother was three months pregnant with me before she knew she was pregnant. She had taken several tests and all were negative. I'm worried this may be happening to me. I have been under quite a bit of stress for the past couple of months but stress had never effected my period before.

Answer
Jane, It is possible to be pregnant and the test be negative as you know (about your mother).
So I hope by now you know for sure. Let me know by email at Carieichel@aol.com
You can always go to a pregnancy resource center and get a free pregnancy test. To find a location, go to http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Will it be a problem if you are pregnant? Hope to hear from you soon.
