I am completely puzzled as to whether or not i'm pregnant.

I'm 5 days late, but i've taken 2 test (both after period was already missed) and they were both negative. I'd estimate that I would have to be about 2 weeks pregnant at this point (if at all) but since the tests were negative I can't say. I have like... a tiny bit of blood, but not what my periods are usually like. This bothers me, because I read that some women bleed a little at the start of pregnancy.

Oh, and notes on period: usually 31 days long, last period: feb 6th.

But i've been sick for about a month now, just this awful cold. but, this cold makes me lose my appetite terribly, so as a result i've lost a few lbs lately, too. i'm only 5'4 and 113lbs usually, so a few lbs makes quiiiite the difference.

and i remember when i used to have an eating disorder, i went about 8 months without having my period at all.

Being sick could delay ovulation, which would in turn delay your period, so it's possible that it's just late. I'd wait another week before testing again.

Did you use first morning urine? i would wait a few days and retest using first morning, if its neg it would be safe to say the test is right.

Could be b/c you were sick, or because of the weight loss. Either way, I'd do like ^ said and wate untill you take another test, and when you do, use first morning pee.

Sounds like you're probably just messing with your cycle cause you're sick. I once got my period (while on the pill) a week EARLY because of stress/illness. It has an amazing effect on the body. I'm guessing you delayed ovulation, but take pregnancy tests in the meantime every once in a while since there is a doubt.

Make sure you are taking folic acid, btw, if you are sexually active and would not abort a "surprise."
