“My husband and I recently decided to start trying to have a baby (about a month or two) We used to use protection all the time. I have irregular periods, so I never really know when I’m going to start, but not often to I miss. I haven’t had my period for 2 months, I’ve taken multiple home pregnancy tests and they all came out negative. I don’t have many symptoms, the only ones that I’ve noticed is that I’ve been getting headaches almost everyday, and I’m more tired then ever. I’ve gained a little bit of weight maybe just a few pounds. I’m 4″11 and around 100 lbs and I’ve been this size since I was 12 so it’s kind of weird that I gained a few cause I could never gain! I just figured it was because I’m getting older now and my metabolism is slowing. I’ve also had some white discharge for the past couple days, I just thought it was a yeast infection. I’ve been reading forums online about women who have had the same symptoms of me and were pregnant but didn’t know until later on. I haven’t seen a doctor yet mainly because I don’t have health insurance right now and I don’t have the money to spend at this moment, so I just decided to wait it out. As the days go by I get more worried about this. If you can, please give me some advice or reasons to why this is happening? Thanks!”
