Hey everyone, I'm new to this site and was looking for some help, sorry in advance that i wrote soooo much, I didn't want to leave anything out!!
To start my husband and I have been ttc for 8 months now and since then I have really been trying to keep track of my menstrual cycels and I've noticed they are usually at least 5 weeks apart. April 19th I had my last regular period which was heavy and i was crampy for my normal 6/7 days. After that with the husband being away with work alot we don't have alot of time to BD but we were able to May 3rd - May 6th before he had to leave for work again and a couple days later i noticed pink spotting only when used the restroom it was probably around the 9th or 10th and I've never got that before (I'm not sure if that has any significance or not lol, it seems you notice alot more when ttc)... This is where I'm kind of confused May 19th I get bleeding again which is about a whole week earlier than when my period should come and it only lasted 4 days with the first 2 being heavy and the last 2 not, I was also not crampy at all during this time but as soon as it ended i got some cramps and I've been really bloated feeling and have tender breast/nipples since then. I took an 88 cent walmart pregnancy test which came up negative so I'm not sure what is going on (Also Back in early February I had an early miscarriage only a couple weeks along, i took a pregnancy test right before that and it came up negative too but my dr. said the blood and tissue i had was infact a misscarriage but this bleeding looked nothing like that and there was not any tissue in it. I called my dr and he said to wait and see if I get my next period but I'm going insane haha). I'm not sure what is going on with me...
Do you track your cycles at all? Like use OPK's, temp, or chart CM? Those are all ways of seeing when you ovulate each month. If not I really suggest doing one of them so you know when your ovulating. As for AF being MIA it could be that you ovulated later, or a cyst, or a bunch of other things. What I suggest is if AF doesn't arrive soon see if your doctor will check your hormone levels to see if you ovulated and if you didn't give you something to bring on AF. Hope that helps dear!
No i never really thought of tracking temps or charting cm, i guess i just thought this was all going to be so much easier . I'm not sure if what i got on May 19th was just a weird period or not, I'm really just hoping AF is a no show this month. Is it normal for some people to just not get positive tests and still be pregnant, sorry for all the questions and thanks for the advice!! I think I should try getting my dr to do tests or something.
