Well, I was due to get my period on Monday (Sept. 21) and I tested Tuesday and today, Friday (cycle day 33) with negative results. I know that I am not really that late yet but I have also been experiencing various pregnancy symptoms, which I know can also be period symptoms - nausea, dizziness, tired, headaches...but the one that is bothering me is the light cramping I've been experiencing for the last five days. It reminds me of period cramping but it's different and couldn't really be described as painful. It does seem to be mainly on my left side, but also all over. At first it just felt tight but now I am more aware of the slight cramping all day.
I have an appointment to get a blood test for pregnancy but will it be able to tell me more than the negative hpts? I was so excited to take my first pregnancy test after the spotting that I had and it's been so hard to wait and wait and wait. Any advice you could give me would be great.
