All test are negative why am I still having pregnancy symptoms all except morning sickness and leg cramps, its been 2 1/2 weeks took test 24 and neg.

Health Class: Your symptoms do not in any way represent pregnancy. You have tested 24 times? Perhaps you should take a few minutes to learn that true early pregnancy is ASYMPTOMATIC until the fetus is big enough to make HCG and have a placenta. That means 'early' signs are not pregnancy but something else, usually. Leg cramping, a sign of the last weeks of pregnancy is not early pregnancy. Ever. ...Read more

Get an ultrasound: Cramps can be normal but pain and bleeding would be abnormal and so if your symptoms get worse, you should get seen by a doctor. No matter what though, an ultrasound is important to simply date and diagnose your pregnancy, making sure that it is within the uterus. ...Read more

Sounds unlikely: The home pregnancy tests are quite good but a blood test is a little more sensitive. The spotting could represent early symptoms of a miscarriage or simply be the start of your period. Symptoms can be misleading, and leg cramps are not a typical early symptom. ...Read more

I am sopouse to have my period today but there is no sign I have been having leg cramps and white creamy discharge could I be pregnant?

I am sopouse to have my period today but there is no sign I have been having leg cramps and white creamy discharge could I be pregnant?

Maybe: It can be hard to guess whether a woman is pregnant or not. A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more
