51yrs- might be pregnant?

Posted by mhhope4 (My Page) on

Hi anyone?
I am 51yrs old and I would love some feedback on this please. I have had 6 children and many miscarriages so I am way too familiar with the early symptoms of pregancy. That said, I am now in the position of thinking I am pregnant. Why? I have had nausea feelings- breasts that have nipples that are sooooooo sore and can expell fluid- missed period by 6 days- headaches-lower back pain- frequent urination- feeling of a small bulge in lower abdomen. So, now one would super guess that yes I am pregnant right?
But, on sunday I took a pregnancy test but the results are negative??????
So, is this just menapause? I have only missed two periods -=Aug and Sept- a small period in Oct and then nothing....
If I am pregnant it would have been from Nov 11 2006.
Any ideas out there?
Thanks - Susan

I am post menopausal at age 49. Going through menopause since age 40 and finally post after 45. Once or twice a year, I get the same symptoms you have. In fact, having the same syptoms now. It started on Thanksgiving Day and will last a few weeks and then go away, or I may have some bleeding. I also get a migraine with it even though I have never had a history of migraines before.

The best thing for you to do is to go to your physician. it could be something entirely different!

Hi mhhope,
Have you read the post right below this one by Loretta?
You might read that one.
During perimenopause, I did have REALLY sore breasts. You might wait a week or so, and repeat your pregnancy test.
Can you doctor at least call in a blood test for you?
