Hello i don't use anything for birth control and yes we are. My partner seems to think I've been stressed but I haven't.

It sounds like most likely you haven't ovulated since December 24.The two things that cause missed periods plus hormonal changes that feel like pregnancy are pregnancy or not ovulating.I would do another pregnancy test now to be sure. If it's negative, that means that you haven't ovulated for a while.In that case, I would see your doctor to figure it out and get some help with ovulating.Not ovulating is often due to stress or illness, but other things can cause it. It's usually not difficult to help using pills. Best wishes.

Thanks do you think there is a chance I could be? It just seems all odd cause I've been having periods since the age of 11 I have been pregnant before some of the feelings are the same but I don't know.

There is a chance that you could be pregnant. But since your test was negative 2 weeks ago, you're not pregnant from 2 weeks after your last period.However, although you apparently didn't ovulate 2 weeks after your December period, you may have ovulated sometime since then.The thing is, that if your symptoms are from pregnancy, a pregnancy test should be positive. So if a test is negative now, you'll know that your symptoms are from hormonal changes and not from pregnancy.
