Okay, so for the past 3-4 weeks I have been experiencing all the symtoms of pregnancy. I, however cannot be pregnant. Let me explain. I suffer from Poly Cyctic Ovary syndrome, Cushings disease, Hypo Thyroidism and Insulin Resistance. Two ways I treat these is by being on birth control pills since the age of 18 and having a Progesterone producing IUD. My husband, as well, went through Chemo and Radiation twice during his childhood so the likelyhood of his little swimmers being good is slim to none. Any yet, I am nauscous all the time to the point where I am now living on Phenergan. I can't keep anything down unless I take a Phenergan before I eat and even them I'm taking a chance. I get really bad headache, I've been totally moody, I'm craving Potato chips and chocolate(together not seperate) and Ned's sandwiches, which I haven't liked since I worked there and now I want one every day. I skipped my period and had some extra light spotting 2 weeks before my period was supposed to starr. Now, I'm no fool. I have a sister who got pregnant with an IUD and a sister who got pregnant with one ovary and all kinds of hormone problems and a sister who got pregnant shortly after her husband had a vesectomy ( spelling? ) Therefore, I took 9 pregnancy tests. That's right, 9. They all said negative. When I ran out of the Phenergan my sister so kindly let me have I went to the doctor to get my own. I told him all my symtoms and he didn't even mention pregnancy. He didn't mention much else either though. He said the PH of my stomach might be off and perscribed me something for that and so far it hasn't helped one bit. I'm tired and it scares me to eat because I tired of heaving over the toilet. Even after puking there is no relief. I also know it's not from my surgery that some of you know about.

So my question is, has anyone ever experienced this and what did it turn out to be?

I remember years ago i was taking these diet pills for a couple months- & a few weeks into them i started having "morning sickness" @ the same exact time every day. I would puck & then feel miserable for 2 hours & then it would go away.
It was the same thing every day, until finally i realized it was the diet pills. I don't know why it took me so long to fingure it out. So that was my issue.

Are you taking any new meds or pills? And by new i mean w/in the last few months- sometimes it takes a while to start having side effects.

Good Luck & keep us updated.

Sure sounds like pregnancy to me! I know people who have taken pregnancy tests and they said negative up until like 20 weeks...just because they didn't have lots of amounts of the hormone. It would be so fun for you to have a baby! Maybe you should ask your doctor to get some blood work done...that would tell you for sure.

I went through the same thing last year...mine turned out to be an allergy to my birth control pills. My body didn't like them very much.
But I would also suggest having your blood drawn, because that will show your hormone levels alot sooner than a pee test ever will.

Vitamins or certain medications can also have that same affect.So can your period. it could be PMS symptoms.
