Hi everyone,
Hoping to get some peace of mind one way or the other. My period usually comes like clockwork. Every 27 days almost to the hour. My Pms is generally down to a minimal and I usually don't get sore breasts or very tired, just very little cramping and sometimes bloating. This past month I had unprotected sex 4 times in days 12-17 day one being the first day of my last period. So my period was due to start today however, i started spotting Monday very lightly and it was pink and brown, I spotted again occasionally Tuesday same color and then yesterday it was slightly heavier and more red brown. This morning I woke up and it is now like what I would consider the same as a period for heaviness but it is watery and almost gooey, sorry I know gross, but not like my normal periods. The last week I have been overly emotional, tired, nauseous to the point of almost throwing up, and for the last 3-4 days my boobs have hurt so bad, and almost feel like when I had been nursing my 2 girls, tingly and sore like they are filling in. I feel like I am pregnant but took 2 hpt this week, one Monday and one yesterday both being negative. Any thoughts or comments girls? Anything would be appreciated! Thanks for reading! Please please please share your thoughts! My ob/gyn is out of town til next week and I'm going crazy!

From my understanding, the bleeding should not be heavy nor should it be red. I think that your best bet would be to just wait a few days, see if the bleeding continues or not.

Perhaps you had a chemical pregnancy? Generally speaking, all early pregnancy symptoms are exactly the same as PMS symptoms, however, what is abnormal for YOU pre AF is the factor that counts.
For example, when i had a chemical in January, my breasts were rock hard and painful (something i had NEVER experienced before). That was a sure sign for me. So, if these signs are abnormal to you, then i would definitely vote pregnancy...

I know how i hate hearing the "wait it out" advice, but it is really all you can do at this stage. I really hope AF disappears for you and you get your BFP. If not, i hope you get it next month then

bleeding stopped as of this morning. so the "heavy bleeding" which was Even lighter than my normal heavy period bleeding is now very light spotting again. so it only lasted 1.5 days Instead of the 3-4 days of heavy bleeding I normally endure. breasts are still tingly like nursing feeling... but hpt this morning was neg. so I dropped the test afterwards and it kinda came apart at the edges so I tore it the rest of the way and when I did it had a blue line just to the left of where the window is that would have made it positive had it been just a little to the side. I wonder ... ?

thank you btw as well for the response!

Ooooh, that does sounds suspicious! May i recommend that you rather use pink dye tests? Blue dye tests are notorious for false positives and all sorts of funny things...

Seeing as your bleeding is was not the same as a usual period for you, and your breasts are tingly (which i am assuming is unusual for you?) i would definitely say that things are looking good for you. Either take another (pink dye) test again and see what you get or wait another few days for HCG to increase. You could also get a blood test to see what you HCG is sitting at, most HPT's require a minimum of 25 for a positive, whereas blood tests only require 5 (plus the result will tell you exactly where your HCG is sitting at

My fingers are crossed for you!
