@Rabbit – if the last test you took is two weeks, you should def. go out and get another one and test today!  What date were you supposed to get your period? are you ever late?  are you peeing more often?

I agree that you need to get a home test again!  Could you get on state healthcare or Medicaid of some kind?  I’m not sure about the programs but they must have no cost insurance for people who don’t make a lot of money.

I would recommend you test again ASAP — I know the thought of testing is a scary thing but I think it’s necessary to test SOON.  Not only do you sound super stressed, your FI is becoming a little nervous, too. 

Aside from your stress levels, if you’re uninsured, you need all the time you can get in order to apply for and secure state insurance.  I was in this situation a few years ago when I found out I was expecting.  I was sitting in the ER receiving IV hydration the night I found out I was pregnant, which happened to be the same night my insurance coverage terminated.  (I work at a hospital and had switched from a full-time position to a per diem w/o benefits.)  Talk about a mess!  Luckily, I was able to apply for and receive Florida’s MomCare insurance.  It was a truly wonderful thing — my prenatal care, labor/delivery, and postpartum visits were covered.  Madison was even covered for one year, as well, which was a blessing I didn’t know about until after she was born.  Every state varies but I say if there is a chance you’re pregnant (which there is), I say get the ball rolling ASAP so as to avoid further stress on yourself and your FI.  Best wishes!

@rabbit:  I’m sure there is something in your state!  You’re single, so that’s definitely on your side (as sad as it sounds, eh?).  Keep us updated and if you need any help, let me know.  I was in your exact shoes in 2008 and boy was it stressful.  But, it worked out for the best and now my little princess is almost 2!  I say test soon and take it from there.  πŸ™‚

The morning pee is best for testing.  I think I would wait to be safe.

@Rabbit – well the symptoms sound like there is a good chance you are pregnant, but the only way to know is to go pee on a stick again.  the sooner you know, the sooner you guys can either get relief or start figuring out what you want to do.

Maybe you can get on your FI’s school health benefits?

I would test again and then if you are (or even if you aren’t!) I would make an appt at Planned Parenthood (NOT FOR AN ABORTION DON’T WORRY) to 1) have the doctor test you as well and 2) get information for getting insurance. There are tons of options and I think they’d be a great resource.

I am very much against abortion and frankly not a huge fan of PP, but if you can’t go see a doctor, and you need help getting your insurance options figured out, they truly would be a great resource.

And since you do eventually want to have kids, it seems like this would be scary but still GREAT news, so if you are- CONGRATS!

@rabbit:

Every thing will work out fine, either way.  Don’t be stressed about it–I know, easier said than done.  But trust me, it will.  Keep us posted.  πŸ™‚

@rabbit:  It is usually recommended that you use first morning urine to test due to the higher levels of hCG present in FMU (aka, you’ve most likely been holding your urine through the night, so levels are concentrated).  However, if you hold your pee for 4 hours, you’ll create the same effect.  I know holding urine sounds like bad advice but it’s technically what you do in the night anyway.  Typically, if you’re 4-5 weeks along, your hCG levels are high enough to skip FMU.  Just figured I’d throw those out there to ya as an FYI.  πŸ™‚

What type of birth control were you on? While it does sound like you have some pregnancy symptoms, I think it’s possible that your brain could be creating those symptoms. There have been many times when I was certain I was pregnant, due to nausea, frequent urination, etc., and then it turned out I was just freaking out. Maybe it’s just me and my crazy paranoia, but this has happened to me more than once.

I agree with the above poster that you should go to Planned Parenthood if you test again and you are pregnant. The people who work there are nice and will definitely help you figure out insurance. I am not against abortion like the above poster, but of course that’s probably not really an option for you if you’re in a super committed relationship and planning on having children relatively soon anyway. But the PP people help pregnant ladies and don’t just encourage abortions by any means! If you are pregnant you guys will work it out and I think you will barely show on your wedding day. Good luck!
