I had my last period on September 24th, I took an ovulation test 2 weeks after and it said I was ovulating. I was supposed to start Friday October 29th, but never got my period. I am very irritable, clumsy, gassy, have tender breast, and some cramping. I also have pressure in my lower abdomen and bloating. I have taken a few pregnancy tests, some in the morning and others in the afternoon or evening and all of them have come back negative. Does this mean I am not pregnant?

How long was it between tests? Sometimes, you can have negative tests even when you're pregnant. The negative results can last for a few days, a few weeks or (rarely) you're entire pregnancy. You're "supposed" to test with the first urine of the morning and wait about a week between tests if one is negative.
If you've been TTC, maybe try to get in touch with your OBGYN. They can do a blood test and/or exam to see if you're pregnant or not. Short of getting your period, s/he is the only one who could say for sure that you are[n't] expecting.
Thank you for the reply. I have become kind of impatient when it comes to testing because of the way I feel. I feel pregnant and I dont understand why the tests are coming back negative. I usually test every other day or so in the morning. I am thinking that if I am still getting a negative result and still have not got my period by the end of the week that I will go to the doctor to get a blood test taken. I will definately try and wait until the end of the week to take another test.
Not sure how old you are, but I just turned 38 a month ago. I was supposed to get my period on 9/29 and it didn't come. Swore UP AND DOWN I was pregnant, because in the past, whenever I'm late, I am pregnant ( I have two boys). I also had VERY sore breasts, tired, etc. So, I took the urine tests and two blood tests - all negative. I thought what the heck is going on??? My period came on 10/15 - almost two weeks late and I had severe cramps- something of which I never had since age 12!!! Now before this, my period came 8 days early and was very light.
SO, I am chaulking it up to my now "old" age and cannot depend on my norma 28 day cycle anymore. I was regular to a T.
Not to say that you might not be pregnant (sounds like that's what you want) because you could still be. I did NOT want to be pregnant so I was relieved.
I hope you get what you want!
