False Negative?

My periods were due mid November and I still do not have them. I've taken 3 pregnancy tests (same brand - at different times / dates) and all have come back negative.
Before I head to the doctor, has anyone else had this happen? Should I try another tester...?
I am bloated, gassy, have a few aches and niggles (this would be my second pregnancy) that are giving me serious deja vu.
I keep thinking it's all in my head... I'm 30 in 13 days and my little one is 4. It just feels like the perfect time.

Hi there.  Yep, this happens to lots of women.  Something else besides pregnancy is most likely going on.  A slow thyroid can cause this as can hormonal issues.  I had both of these and got periods every 3 to 4 months for about a year and a half.  Was NOT pregnant, it was these other things affecting my hormones, and thus, my cycle.

At the two month mark of no period, see a doctor to help determine why.  good luck

Thank you, specialmom.
After my first born, my periods were all over the shop but lately they have been like clockwork. Until now.
Thank you again, you've been really helpful!
